I am recording my May favourites later and was gathering the products I needed when I realised that there is one item that I have relied heavily on last month. No fancy creams or expensive make-up just exfoliating gloves.
I have tried quite a few brands of exfoliating gloves but my favourites are from Infinity (have no idea who they are). I found them at my local pharmacy for €2.99. The Penneys version are a bargain at €1.50 but I find them a little too abrasive.
I exfoliate like a mad woman before a sun holiday to prepare my skin. I have tried so many exfoliators. Currently in my bathroom I have L’Oreal Exfotonic (love the smell of this one), St Tropez Body Polish, Fake Bake Scrub, Soap and Glory and a few more that have made their way onto the shelf. I like them all but they don’t work near as well as exfoliating gloves.
I find exfoliating products are great for maintenance of already smooth/exfoliated skin but the gloves are great was sloughing off dead skin efficiently.
They’re great at scrubbing off fake tan if you want an even base for re-application. I have sensitive skin and don’t find gloves too abrasive. I cover myself in one of my organic soaps and then scrub gently. I also use the gloves before epilating, waxing or shaving, that means no ingrown hairs afterwards.
I’ll be bringing a pair of these gloves in Holiday this year, much lighter than carrying a bottle of exfoliator.
What do you use to exfoliate?
