Bath Essentials Exfoliating Gloves
Advantages: Well made and they do the job
Disadvantages: None at all
In the past I have tried various exfoliating creams and washes and have always been quite impressed with the results, for Christmas as part of a hamper full of toiletries I received a pair of Tesco Exfoliating Gloves.
The Tesco Exfoliating Gloves didn't actually come in any packaging, the two gloves were held together with a small plastic tag which had a label attached to it. The front of the label was dark brown with the words "Tesco Exfoliating Gloves" written on it in white writing, there were also two green stripes going down one side of the label. I cannot remember if there was any information on the back of the label other than Tesco contact details as this label was quickly disposed of and to be honest I didn't actually read it as I knew what to do with the gloves. The gloves simply needed to be separated for use by cutting the small plastic tag, I wouldn't recommend snapping it with your hands as this can pull and possibly put a hole in the material before you have even used them.
The Tesco Exfoliating Gloves look like a regular pair of gloves, they have an elastic wrist which is ribbed to allow the gloves to sit tightly on your hands meaning that they do not slip off when using them or when they are wet. The gloves are made from quite a rough material, again I'm not sure exactly what this is as I have disposed of the label, this fabric is also quite elasticised meaning that they are very east to stretch onto your hands. When I first felt the fabric that the gloves were made from I was quite pleased to feel that they were quite rough hopefully meaning that they would successfully exfoliate my skin, however I wasn't sure how hard I would have to work to achieve the same effect as the creams and washes. The gloves come in one size, however the elasticised material and elasticised wrist means that they easily stretch to fit over hands of all sizes, the wrist area is quite small but it does stretch extremely well allowing your to get your hands inside, once on the elastic around the wrist does not feel tight at all, however it does do a good job of keeping the gloves in place, once on found the gloves very comfortable to wear, they moulded to my hands perfectly.
Using the Tesco exfoliating Gloves is very simple, you do not need to buy special washes to use with them you can simply use your regular shower gel. I just squeezed a small amount of shower gel into one hand after wetting the gloves and rubbed them together to spread the shower gel over both gloves, I then went on to massage my skin in circular movements as you would normally when using an exfoliating cream or wash, I then rinsed as normal. I found that the roughness of the fabric was just enough and I did not have to press hard or scrub at my skin, the gloves successfully cleaned and exfoliated my skin at the same time. One I had finished and had dried after my bath I did notice that my skin felt very smooth and soft, the gloves had done an excellent job of exfoliating my skin, it felt as though I had used my regular creams or washes. I have since used the gloves several times and each time they have been successful, using the gloves means that I will save myself money on buying different creams as I can just use the Tesco gloves when I want to exfoliate. The gloves can also be put in the washing machine if you wish to wash them and despite several uses they still look as good as new and no holes have formed in the fabric at all.
The gloves come in a variety of colour, I have the bright pink pair, however I have also seen them in blue and white as well, I think it is luck as to what colours Tesco have in stock, I quite like the bright pink ones mainly because I love anything pink but also because they do not discolour with use, mine have not faded at all and the colour is just as bright as when I first received them.
One pair of Tesco Exfoliating Gloves costs 99p, although they are on offer at the moment for 66p, I think this is excellent value for money and I have certainly got my moneys worth from them, I would not be able to get a decent exfoliating wash for this sort of price nor would I get as many uses from it. In my opinion these have certainly been worth the money.
I would definitely recommend the Tesco exfoliating Gloves, they really do work and leave your skin feeling smooth and soft, they will also save you money on having to buy creams and washes on a regular basis that basically do the same thing. The gloves are proving to be tough and long lasting as despite many uses in a short amount of time they are still as good as new and the material has not fallen apart at all. despite the gloves coming in just one side they are well elasticised meaning that they will accommodate most people. Buying a paid of these gloves is extremely cheap and you certainly get your moneys worth. When mine finally do wear out I would definitely buy another pair and would highly recommend anyone trying them.
Summary: A nice item for a good price
