      Disadvantages

      Thanks for Reading :)

      I frequently like to use shower gel during my showers, mainly because I find that bathing in bubble baths can irritate my skin and also I don't always have the time to wait for the bath water to fill up for bathing. Therefore having a body puff is a shower item I use quite frequently and once my Body shop body puff started to wear away I decided it was time to buy a new one.



      == PRICE ==


      I remember coming across an Asda branded body puff during my weekly grocery shop and when I saw it was priced at around 98p I thought it was a great bargain price and decided to give it a go. It was available in two colours white or blue; I opted for the blue one as I thought the white colour would start to look dirtier fairly quickly.



      == DESIGN ==


      The body puff is shaped as a ball and is intertwined together by its nylon material that scrunch together to form a bouncy net looking puff, It is kind of hard to explain so I apologise for my description! My particular body puff is coloured blue and in my opinion looks well designed and put together by intertwined stings that and the end produces a hanging part that allows me to easily hang onto the door hook in our bathroom or on a hanging peg in my bedroom.



      == EXPERIENCE ==


      I first wet my body puff with some water allowing it to absorb some moisture and then pour on some shower gel. I found that the body puff easily allowed the shower gel to lather up into a nice foamy bubbly consistency, I also loved the fact that I did not have to use much shower gel to get the lathering effect as the body puff did all the hard work and was able to produce more than enough lather and foamy soap to rub myself clean. This is of course a plus side as it means I tend to use lesser amounts of shower gel and save money in the process.

      I found it felt nice and soft against my skin, with the foamy soap it felt like silk against my skin and definitely helped clean my skin more effectively compared to not using any body puff at all.

      I found that my body puff has kept its colour quite well and the blue has not faded even after frequent use. I have been using my body puff for a good few months and it still manages to do the job quite well, although it is starting show signs of wear now but that was expected considering it has been a few months. In fact I was quite surprised that it lasted me this long, as in the past I have used more expensive body puffs and they tended to fall apart after a 3 weeks! So proofing the Asda branded version is a good quality product and well designed.



      == VERDICT ==


      I would recommend this Asda branded body puff, as it does its job perfectly. It is nice a soft against the skin, lathers up shower gel and soap well and is also long lasting. I would definitely purchase this again once mine falls apart, and with a price of only 98p I manage to save a few pennies too!

      Asda body puff


      Personally, one item that I always use during my morning shower is a shower puff or a body puff. The shower puff provides a lovely gentle daily skin exfoliation and it makes all my rather expensive shower gels last that little bit longer. Simply put a shower puff is a bunched up mesh like material that when used with shower gel creates a nice abundance of lather, much more than you would ever get with a typical face or wash cloth. Really in my opinion a good shower puff will make any shower far more enjoyable as well as saving you money because you really do need to use less shower gel than you would otherwise to get a lot of lovely lather.


      I like to think of myself as a bit of a shower puff connoisseur :) and really in my opinion Asda have made a pretty good puff. As far as I am aware the body puff is only available in white, but then that's not a bad thing unless like me you enjoy a bit of variety. The Asda body puff is initially quite a tight mesh of netting like material, but it does loosen with use and really it's a fairly standard shower puff. I would have to say that the Asda puff does seem to start to separate faster than some other shower puff brands I have tried and personally I do find that I need to replace the Asda puff sooner than I have in the past with others brands. But then having said that the Asda puff only costs a fraction of the price.


      So far I have had a few of the Asda shower puffs and they really are as good as some of the more expensive brands, if not just slightly smaller and maybe a little tighter held together. Overall, it does exactly what you want it to do for a low price. If you are interested the Asda body puff typically retails for around 85 pence, which is in my opinion a complete bargain. There really isn't a whole lot more to be said about the Asda body puff, it is a simple and fairly standard shower puff that delivers exactly what you would expect from it.


      From me the Asda shower puff gets a well earned four out of five stars and it comes highly recommended.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great washing accessory

        I have started putting together Nappy cakes and hampers in my spare time and as such I was looking for items in my local Asda toiletries section to see what would be suitable to use.

        This particular puff is from Asda although you can buy similar in many different places this one is great value at £1 each, the puff is available in white and pale blue, I have stuck to the white one as it matches in with anything I am doing. The puff comes attached to a small piece of cardboard so it doesn't really have actual packaging.

        The body puff is literally a sheet of mesh material concertinaed ona piece of thin rope and bunched up together. The material isn't what you could call soft but it isn't too rough on your skin either. As I use these items for making up gifts for other people I like to try them out first so I bought one myself and then have bought others for in the hampers now I know it is a suitable product.

        The puff is great and makes your shower gel go much further, you need to wet the puff to use it and then if you place a small amount of shower gel on it you will find that it lathers up really well and you don't use half as much so it pays for itself pretty quickly with your savings. The puff also helps to exfoliate your skin whilst you are washing, I have tiny little bumps on the back of my arms and have found this area feels much smoother when using the puff.

        This puff is great it is well worth the £1 I paid and I have been using it for a couple of months now and it is still in great condition, the puff is soft enough for childrens skin too as I use it on my 5 year olds skin and there has been no nasty reactions or complaints from her.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A simple body puff

          I love using a body puff, it maximises the lather quality of soaps and shower washes and a little product goes a long way with these. I'm going to try and review my body puff I purchased from Asda, I'm not quite sure how much you can write about a ball of fabric!

          The body puff didn't come inside any kind of packaging. The only thing it had was a little label containing the barcode and product name attached by a plastic tag. The body puff was available in two colours, either white or light blue. I purchased the light blue.

          The puff is made up of lots of layers of a wire type material, it isn't particularly soft but it isn't unpleasant to use either. The buff has a white loop of material attached to it so it is easy to store either on the bath tape or tied to the shower hose. I've found that after use, I squeeze the excess liquid out and hang it over the bath taps and when I go to use it the day after it is completely dry.

          Using the puff makes my shower products go much further than if I was applying by hand, so it is a good investment for the long run. It also lightly exfoliates as it's being used as well as the body puff does have a slight scratch to it. It allows me to lather up my products with ease, and a little goes a very long way.

          Price wise, this body puff cost me £1, it doesn't sound expensive and after looking around since buying it I've found the same kind of product, that feels the same as this Asda one, a lot cheaper in places like Wilkinsons, and even in pound land you can get 3 for £1.

          This body puff has a fantastic quality, and ease to use and store. Although I love my body puff, when I replace it I'll be purchasing elsewhere as Asda aren't the cheapest place (for once!). I'd definitely look around before purchasing one.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A good cheap shower puff

            I'm a shower girl, I don't have time to laze in a luxurious bubble bath, I wish, so I often like to use a good quality shower gel to get a sense of opulence. In order to get my shower gel to lather up well, I always reach for a body puff, and the last one I bough was from Asda for around 98p.

            A body puff is basically a very fine mesh, or nylon netting all bunched up to make a big fluffy ball. It is held together with a thick piece of rope. The rope also functions as a hanging device, which I attached to the little hook on my shower head.

            Mine is light blue in colour, not white as pictured. I have had a white one in the past but it turned an odd colour, probably from all the false tan I tend to apply. The blue one has managed to retain its colour quite well.

            When I'm showering I just wet the puff and squeeze on a rather large dollop of shower product. I then use the puff as I would a sponge, and work up a nice thick lather that takes ages to rinse out. I think I over do the shower gel, and I know I should use less as the puff does tend to make a luxurious lather, but I can't help myself. I love the smell and feeling of my current shower gel, so I tend to go over board!

            The puff makes a better lather than a sponge or regular flannel, so I use the foam to shave my legs also, so it helps make my shower gel a 2 in 1 type of product.

            My current puff has been on the go now for a few weeks, but it is starting to unravel a little, so I think I may be on the look out for a new one. I've used more expensive ones in the past, and while they may look prettier, be a nicer colour and a bit bigger, they all tend to last me around the same amount of time before they begin to come undone.

            Would I recommend this product? Definitely, its well worth the price tag of less that £1.00 and does a great job of lathering up nicely. What more could you want from a puff?

              Disadvantages

              Good Until It All Starts To Fall Apart!

              At the minute I'm using a Soap And Glory shower puff and I love it because it looks so good and is also proper well made. The one I had before though was from Asda and I remember paying £1.00 for it about 3 months ago.

              It's dead basic, mine is like a goldy beige colour with a white plaited loop so you can hang it up. It's quite a fat puff and there's loads of netting to make it up.

              It was good to start with, exactly the same as any other puff really! lol The problem came after about 2 weeks and that was when the stitching holding the netting together starting coming away, it didn't all go but a few stitches ripped so the net started unravelling a bit. That made it look bad in the bathroom but also meant it was hard to hold onto the puff in the shower.

              You couldn't get a good scrub with it once that happened because the netting was too loose. It's a shame that happened because I liked the fat size of this puff, I'm not mad keen on body scrubs and that's why I use a puff because as long as you use a creamy body wash it's the next best thing to a scrub.

              I might have got a dodgy one but I still won't buy another Asda shower puff because 2 weeks proper use for £1.00 is a waste of money, especially when the pound shop sells 2 in a pack but I couldn't get there that day!

              Not recommended!

                A great value, good quality Body Puff

                So Moisturisers, Cleansers and Toners are essential Skin Care. Foundation, Lipstick and Blushers are essential Make Up. Perfume Sticks, Body Spray and Perfume is essential Body Fragrance. I always claim things are real essentials to have, like Make Up, Perfumes, etc. But I found my actual essential product, the Body Puff, or scrunchie, and during a weekly shop, I saw this Puff in Asda, so thought I'd try it out, as I hadn't used one in ages, and knew my arms could do with some treatment using the Body Puff, so for £1, I thought how what could I lose?

                The Body Puff, is a ball of netting, which is tightly scrunched together, and from Asda comes in two colours, White and Light Blue, I choose the White colour personally. A criticism, is that there could be other colours, like Pinks, Purples and even patterns, as it may appeal to more people then, but I liked my white one, and It matches my Bathroom, and I love matching things! To use the Puff, you apply your usual Shower Gel or Soap, and rub in using the Puff, which makes the Shower Gel or Soap more soapy and softer.
                Using the Body Puff from Asda, was really great, as the Puff was of good quality, so it made using it much easier and nicer, and it really made my shower gel really soapy, which I loved. Also my skin became exfoliated, and more much softer, which was great for my problem area, my arms, where I got spots, which look like a rash, and the Bath Puff made my skin feel softer and nicer, and the rash looked much less obvious compared to what it used to be, so I had the confidence to wear a dress, which showed my arms off abit more then usual. I would defiantly buy this, ladies and gentlemen, as the Puff is very unisex men would benefit from using it too, as the Bath Puff makes my skin lovely and soft and helps tackle any bad parts that you may have.

                Available from Asda for a £1, this is an essential product, and amazing value for money!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A nice little body puff from Asda that is reasonable value.

                It was whilst I was shopping in my local Asda supermarket that I picked up some body care toiletry items such as bubble bath and shower gel and the like. Seeing the body puffs in the same aisle, I decided to 'splash out' (pun intended) and treat myself to a new body puff as my old one was a bit past its best!

                In case any of you are unfamiliar with these types of product, the body puffs (or body 'scrunchies' as they are also commonly known) is a kind of 'balled up' design, and the material is made of a sort of netting fabric or material, which is a light plastic. There is a little 'loop' made out of rope that allows for the body puff to be hung up after it has been used and rinsed out, which makes it easier to dry and store. I tend to hang mine on the shower or one of the bath taps, and this is easy to do thanks to the little hoop design.

                From memory, I think there were two colours available, but I opted to buy the blue coloured one. The packaging is fairly minimal and really only consists of a label/tag which is attached to the body puff with a plastic tag... The product is exactly like the one shown in the picture at the top of the Dooyoo page.

                I do find that the body puffs make it a little more pleasant experience when in the bath or shower as they really allow you to achieve a luxurious lather with your body wash or shower gel, assuming that your product of choice is of a reasonable quality of course!

                Furthermore, I find that my skin is exfoliated - even if it is only a little bit - a little better than if I had just bathed with a flannel. In particular, I find there is a little improvement in 'problem' areas such as my elbows. The results achieved in this respect are of course not to the same standard as if I had used a loofah say, but there is a slight improvement nevertheless.

                I find that the body puff glides easily across my skin once wet. I also find that once a product of my choice has been applied, such as shower gel or body wash, the body puff allows said product to be lightly 'scrubbed' onto my skin with ease. In my opinion, this makes for a pleasant washing experience when in the bath or shower.

                The body puff from Asda cost in the region of £1, and whilst it is worth noting that you can pick up a similar item from discounted drugstores and the like for less than this, perhaps 40 pence or so, I do think that these cheaper offerings aren't just as robust, and in my experience they tend to disintegrate by coming loose after a short while. For this reason, I was happy to pay a bit more for my Asda body puff.

                It is worth noting too that I regularly pop my body puff into the washing machine and whilst this can cause the puff to lose a bit of its shape as it seems to loosen the 'knot' out a little, I do find that washing my puff in the machine helps to reassure me that there is no nasty bacteria lurking around... To say I am a bit paranoid about such things is a bit of an understatement, but I personally feel happier using items like this once they have been 'freshened up' in the machine.

                I did think that the body puff from Asda was of a fairly high quality and thus I was happy to pay a bit more for this puff than cheaper offerings I have bought before. I would recommend it, and will award it full Dooyoo marks.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  I won't buy it again!

                  When I was in Asda recently, I saw this body puff, or bath scrunchie as I call it, and decided to buy it as my old bath scrunchie was coming loose and unravelling.

                  The scrunchies come in plain white, or light blue. I have the blue one, but I would prefer they came in some prettier colours such as pink or purple! They come with a small cardboard tag attached to them with the Asda Essential Care symbol on it.

                  The scrunchie has a white, thin rope attached to it in a loop. This is useful for hanging it from the bath tap after use, which allows the remaining water to drain off into the bath and helps the scrunchie to dry. I also use it to loop around my wrist whilst I am using the scrunchie, as it allows me to keep a good hold on it.

                  The puff is made out of slightly wiry material which is wound quite tightly. It is not too rough but it is not soft either - it is firm enough to provide some light exfoliating when being used on the body.

                  I find that using a puff makes my bathtime much more economical both from a time standpoint and from a financial point of view. Using the puff is quick and easy, it means I spend less time lathering up shower gel in my hands and it allows me to spread it over my body in no time at all. The scrunchie also helps shower gel to go a lot further than when I use shower gel on its own. For example, I use Snow Fairy shower gel from Lush, and I find that without a scrunchie, a large blob will cover one arm. With a scrunchie, the lather produced will wash my entire body, so I only need one large squirt of it rather than four or five!

                  However there is a disadvantage to the scrunchie and that is the price. The puffs cost 98 pence each which doesn't sound like much, but I later saw ones in Wilkinson's and other places for around 30 pence, which means I could buy three times the amount!

                  This is a perfectly fine bath scrunchie but I wouldn't really recommend it, because it is possible to get ones for so much cheaper elsewhere, and that's why I have only given it three stars.
