I REALLY love these towels! With mine, I can really give my body a good scrub. It works better than any body scrub for me. I even have my husband using it. Now our skin is soft and glowy :)
Ok, I saw the reviews and raves about this product so I decided to get on Amazon and buy one. It's AWESOME! It only cost a little over $3. The first time I used this I washed very carefully because it kinda hurt and I was afraid it would scratch my skin. It doesn't scratch! And once I got accustomed to the feel I was scrubbing like a pro! LOL
It exfoliates really well, and I don't have to use as much soap as I did with a washcloth to get it sudsy. It left my skin feeling clean and smooth! No more having to strain myself trying to wash every inch of my back lol.
anyone in Australia buying these (i live in sydney), could you please mail me and tell me where on earth your finding this gem!
thanks in advanced, x.
I've been using these for years and never thought to write a review on here until i saw people raving. I figured I should join in on the praise. This is the poufy loofah's bigger, badder sister. These Japanese bath towel are the best. Not only do they lather up really well, making the most of your shower gels, but they exfoliate at the same time. Also, these are thinner than loofah's and dry completely, rather than staying damp and providing a bacterial breeding ground. (Can we all say GROSS?) Not all Japanese bath towels are created equal, I found this out when I had to buy a new one and grabbed one that was on sale. It was much softer and i didn't feel like it exfoliated as well.
This is the best bath product I have bought in years. I tried it once and immediately threw my shower puff in the bin. I'm soft and smooth all over, even my feet, in far less time than it takes to faff around with body scrub. Less mess in the shower, too! And my soap bars lather beautifully with the Salux. I wouldn't use it on my face, but I can't see myself ever needing to buy anything different for washing my body. It's just great.
This product does work as it does scrub off the dead skin on your back and makes it even reachable to do so. I think the reason why this is so popular is because there haven't been a product that can top this (not loofah or sponges)
I do have to say, although it did improve my skin by visibly less pimples, I still have back acne.
For first time users, this might be a bit too rough but you'll get used to it.
I had to, just had to buy one of these because of all the rave reviews here on MUA. It's all true! Every last bit it! I have mature, ok aging skin and this made it feel baby smooth! I couldn't believe it! The towel is huge so I cut it into smaller more manageable pieces and gave some to others in my family. They all love it! I will buy this over and over again!
love love love these. i can't shower and not use this. if its difficult to find, walmart has one thats similar and its the size of a face towel and is actually cheaper for $2.00. sometimes publix has them too buy another brand but its pretty much the same thing. i always stock up on these when i can find them
I would never have found this little gem if not for my wonderful peeps here on MakeupAlley! Every once in a while I look through the Best Value section and find something fun to try, and this bath towel was what I found the last time I took a look through that section. I got a pack of 4 because they were having a special, and boy am I glad I did. I fell in love the first day (it has been about 2 months now) with how it felt, how it held lather and how my skin felt and looked afterward. I do not use it just on my back, but all over and my skin feels great, and since using the Dove Visiblecare with it, my skin has never looked better. My daughter used my shower the other day and came out with this blissed out look on her face. She said "Either you get me one of those scrubbie things or I am going to steal yours, it is amazing!" and I had to laugh, because she was right. Being able to exfoliate your back and hind end without contorting yourself into knots was wonderful! The towel is the perfect size and the perfect roughness. I would highly suggest this to anyone with bacne as a fantastic way to keep the skin exfoliated and glowing. My best friend was another recipient of one of my 4 towels and she cant stop talking about it. She is the kind of person that you could use a metal brush to scratch her back and she would just say "Harder!", and while this feels nothing like a metal brush, it is quite rough and feels fantastic on itchy back skin, dry or wet and you do not need someone else to do it!!! Everyone should own one of these fantastic little gems.
And let me mention how wonderful the customer service was at saluxshop dot com. You can get them on Amazon too from Salux (I am pretty sure they are the same company). They sent a handwritten note thanking me by name for making my purchase. Do you know how rare that is? They must be selling a billion of these things and they still send a personalized note. Fast shipping, great price and AMAZING product!
The Salux cloth has done amazing things for my skin. The biggest concern it has addressed is my KP (keratosis pilaris, aka bumps on the arms). I've had mild/moderate KP on the back of my arms but also on my butt and thighs for a couple of years. I've tried a couple of things (scrubs, AHA products) but nothing seemed to take care of this. I now use the salux cloth 4-5 times/week followed by a rich moisturizer (right now I'm using Korres Yogurt Body Butter).
The Salux has greatly improved my skin texture and clarity. My skin now absorbs creams much better and I think I also get fewer ingrown hair.
The towel is rather large. I like to cut mine in half and each half lasts about 4-6 months I'd say...
This product is cheap and super effective. You can buy these online or at an Asian store. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who has dry and/or flaky skin, ingrown hair, KP or rough skin. However, I would avoid using this on the face as it is too abrasive for that purpose.
