Most Helpful Positive Review Works as promised and lasts and lasts!
I LOVE this towel. If you want a good exfoliation anywhere on your body and don't have sensitive skin, this is the product. Don't bother with efoliating beads in body wash or oily scrubs that are expensive.
You can wrap it around your back, around your foot, use a corner of it on your face, fold it up into a piece that fits in your hand, squish it up into a ball, whatever strikes your fancy.
What I especially love is that when you're all done, this rinses easily and dries completly unlike shower poofs that can start to smell like mildew and seem to never fully dry.
This is pretty abrasive but will soften up over time. That's really the only downside - if you have sensitive skin, this probably isn't for you, but if you bought it and do have sensitive skin, maybe consider using it on your roughest spots and give it a try on other areas later once it's less abrasive.
Most Helpful Critical Review Works a little too well
I was really excited to have an exfoliating hand towel to reach my back. However, seemed like this towel is really rough to the point where after exfoliating with it, the running water burned. But on the rest of my body it was fine. Guess it does the job a little too well.

I thought I would use this product only on my back, but then after I washed my back with it I punched it up and used it all over my body. The texture is not too rough and feels kind of good on your body. Like it's scratching your whole body for you, but in a good way. Almost like a massage. I love my new purchase!
Good addition to my shower
Allisan from San Diego, CA
It does feel very invigorating and my skin does feel smoother after using it (with a very moisturizing body wash). I did have to wash this towel right out of the bag because it smelled really strongly metallic somehow. It's thinner than I expected, so I'm unsure how long the material will last with everyday use.
Works very well. Made my skin super soft ♥️
Ashn.xo from Alabama
I've never used any type of in-shower towel like this one before, I figured I'd give it a try, and boooooy I DO NOT REGRET buying this one bit.
Great exfoliating towel
Tee from Chicago
Use this towel gently on the face do not scrub too hard.
Should have listened to reviews on the smell
JACKIE from Seattle
It smells awful when you open it. I've tried airing it out for a couple days and washing it and spraying it with lavender. Nothing. It's so stinky.. like mildew and plastic.. wish I'd gotten something else.
I love this towel!
T. from T.
I've tried several different exfoliating sponges and wasn't really impressed with the texture. This towel, however, is absolutely perfect. It's coarse enough to give the exfoliating feel but still gentle enough to use without it irritating your skin. I used this with Dr. Bronners almond soap and I was glowing afterwards!
Love this product!
Sasa from Durham, NC
I have been using these for over 15 years. I love them. I switch them out. Put them in the washer and hang dry. You use less soap because it creates a large amount of suds even just with bar soap. So superior to a washcloth. I travel with them. I know I have converted any guest to my house to these towels!
Never felt this clean tbh
Mia from Eastvale
Forget the body scrub body wash, use this and it will get rid of your dead skin and leave u finally feeling completely clean.
Helps clear skin
Luz from Brooklyn, NY
At first, I was skeptical about this product due to the fact that I have very sensitive skin. However, the exfoliation on this towel is very gentle and doesn't irritate my skin. As a matter of fact, as someone who suffers from body acne from time to time, I used this with the Neutogena Body Clear body wash and the acne was gone the next day!
A great product!!
Linda from Moses Lake
For my back. It gets every spot. Everywhere I use it it exfoliates so well. My bumpy skin is smooth, now. Cleans easy, dries fast. It's just a wonderful and affordable product!
Use this for everything!!
Lisawu427 from Atlanta
This thing exfoliated my lips too without making them bleed, excellent for body & face too, not harsh but super exfoliating at the same time, read about it in vogue, AMAZING
Scrubs well, just have to get the smell out first!
Night Nurse from Ohio
Love this as a scrubber, back scrubber/scratcher, and preshave exfoliator. Just pay attention to how hard you scrub and really, you know what areas just need a washcloth! ;) scrubs just a bit better than the cheaper ones, dries completely and fast, and lasts just shy of forever (I wash it out by hand every week)
I just wish I remembered how i got the musty smell out of the first 2- it's there when you buy them, so I figure it has to do with the plastic bag and shipping. I've tried dish soap, antibacterial soap, and 50/50 alcohol and water. Next is distilled vinegar, if the alcohol doesn't work (smell only noticeable when it's dry).
Enjoy a nice scrub
Utah girl. from Utah
I like how it long. You can easily scrub your back.
Better than a poof and washcloth anyday!
da4pups from Memphis, TN
Love these towels - so easy to get your back and lower extremities without gyrations.
Great For Smooth Skin
M from Beachwood
I've been using this for months now everyday in the shower and I notice that my entire body is extremely smoother. I really really like this towel and will be repurchasing whenever this one starts to deteriorate.
Rough but good
amandas from WA
This is very exfoliating in an intense way. After getting over the roughness, it actually feels pretty good.
Use instead of washcloth in shower
t from FL
I use it in the shower instead of a washcloth. It leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed.
It feels great. I like it.
CI from Kingsport, TN
I got this for my husband for Valentines Day. I tried it and I really like it. The size is big enough
to do a good job on any size back. It felt really good. Easy to absorb soap and rinse out.
Not too rough on your back.
Lisa Wu from Atlanta
Omg AMAZING! Exfoliates perfectly but not too rough on skin. Gets off the dirt/dead skin that regular washcloths won't! OBSESSED! Read about it in Vogue & they did not disappoint me!
Great for skin and hard to reach areas like the mid back!
Alice in Wonderland from TN
This towel is so great I bought 2 - one for our master bath and one for our boys. Exfoliates hard to reach areas and is great for keeping skin clean and soft. for quick drying, I recommend letting it dry outside of the shower.
Kiki from Washington DC
I use this with my daily body wash and it works great. You don't have to use a lot of your body wash a little goes a long way.
Thehuntess5 from Eagle river, alaska
Very coarse and exfoliating. It also is very long so I have considered cutting in half.
Course with great reach
shadypanda from DC
My mom and I both love this more than the body poofs as this is coarser and allows you to scrub your back with ease. I didn't see much difference with their charcoal infused one so I just stick to the plain one which I think is cheaper anyway and often these are on sale. I do recommend replacing it every 4 months per the directions as these will gradually wear down.
This Is Actually A Really Awesome Towel!
Chrissy from Pennsylvania
I was surprised at how well this towel works. I used it as part of an at home spa day and was able to reach all areas of my body with this towel. It exfoliates nicely without being harsh. And it is reusable!!
A must for me!
taclark97 from SC
This is long enough to scrub my back in the shower. It is wonderful for exfoliation. A gentle wash with this is all it takes to keep the dead skin off easily.
