I hate exfoliating! As a qualified Beauty Therapist though I do know the importance of buffering off those dead skin cells! For a long time I used exfoliators in cream and liquid form which can be really messy and annoying to do and to be honest once a week I do use a Soap & Glory one as a treat for my skin however every other day or so I will target a part of my body with these gloves.
What you get is pair of them and they come in various colours, mine are white. They retail in Boots just under three pounds a pair.
What you get is a material glove with slightly elasticated cuffs to them so they stay safe, secure and in place and they are stretchy so basically will fit most hand sizes (I have really small hands). They feel rough on the outside texture wise though quite smooth on the inside which is great considering I don't want to hurt my hands whilst I am using them.
You can use these on your skin with water however I find that hard going and a bit too abrasive for my sensitive skin so I use these along with a bit of shower gel/cream/soap or whatever and usually get a good lather going at the same time as exfoliating gently so I get to feel really clean at the same time as exfoliating.
I like the fact that the material of these is rough enough to feel that its exfoliating without feeling that I'm damaging my sensitive skin. I can use these over scars too without ripping into them and I find them brilliant at keeping at bay dry skin on my elbows etc. They are safe to use on a daily basis too. I'm shocked to see that people admit to using these on their faces as they are not designed for that purpose and shouldn't be. They are far too abrasive for that and whilst they may appear to be effective God knows the damage done to the dermis!
For me though I use these often and find them to be a cost effective, fuss free at keeping my skin soft, supple and smooth. Gone is dry, murky looking skin quickly and easily and these are brilliant for anyone that wants to remove dead skin cells and either get a good body lotion to sink into the skin or if you simply want to apply a fake tan to a smooth canvas!
Although I have owned mine ages I have found that they to do not shred or to stop working and I occasionally bung them in a quick wash (30c) just to really make sure they are clean though they are simply enough to run under a tap and allow to air dry.
So yep thumbs up from me and my skin!
This review is also posted on Ciao under this same username.
I've been suffering recently from very dry skin particularly around my forehead and hair line, but also on other random parts of my body like at the ankle, probably due to the change in weather. Its really uncomfortable and something I have tried numerous exfoliating scrubs to get rid of. I know exfoliating gloves are primarily made for the body because they are quite rough, but I tend to use them briefly at this hairline part as I seem to get such tough skin here that scrubs and a flannel won't fix. I wouldn't recommend using them anywhere else on the face though, unless you want a pretty sore face. At Christmas I bought a pair of exfoliating gloves from Boots to try a new method of exfoliating. The pair I bought are a white pair, although I have also seen a blue option available for sale also. Looking back I probably should have opted for the bright blue pair actually as they have gotten a little mucky due to the dead skin and the creams I've used when wearing them.
To use you simply put on the pair of gloves (I recommend putting them on dry as its easier) and then rub the area in little circles. This can be a little sore if you go over the same area repeatedly, but its a necessary evil for me to remove the dead skin. I think its very easy to remove the skin and its a pretty quick process. I haven't had to use any exfoliating gels with the gloves as the gloves and water alone have proven to be an effective means of removing the dead or dry skin. After using my skin feels very soft (if a little red) and is very smooth to the touch.
The gloves cost £2.69 which is a very reasonable price for something I use quite regularly and get a lot of use out of. I think they are a good quality product as they have lasted a long time and are still good as new once washed. The gloves are machine washable so they're very easy to get clean once again.
I would recommend these exfoliating gloves, especially because of the price, but also because they are a high quality useful product to have. They are fast acting and always good at removing dry skin, as well as helping to alleviate things like a coming in-grown hair which I have once used to attempt to prevent.
One of my treats now and again to myself is a nice indulgent shower. Usually, with two toddlers I really only have time for a quick splash and dash, in and out in about two minutes but when I have the time to myself I like to go the whole nine yards, exfoliate, facial mask, shave my legs, apply body lotion etc so I can really take care of my skin and body and make myself feel better.
One of the items I use when I do this are these great exfoliating gloves from Boots. They are pretty much a real pair of gloves but they are made of rough fabric. When you rub these gloves over your skin then, they act as a buffer and get rid of dry skin and impurities.
What I like is that they are really easy to use and a lot nicer than a body brush or an actual body scrub lotion. All I do is get into the shower and then wet the gloves a little bit, add some of my regular shower gel, nothing special and just rub over my skin with a little bit of pressure.
The sensation is really nice actually and I like the way it makes my body feel. When you have the gloves on and rub them over your body it is a bit scratchy but its a nice scratch feeling and I really feel like I am buffing my body and really making the skin glow and look really fresh. After use my skin is not red raw nor does it have any scratches or cuts on it which is nice. Afterward its quite incredible but my skin feels really lovely and soft and I feel then it is better prepared to have body lotion applied to it as it soaks it in better when the top layer of dead skin has gone.
The material of the gloves has quite a tight weave to it and I think they had a bit of stretch fabric or material in them too because when I put them on they seem to stretch over my hands and then fit quite tightly. I suppose these gloves have to work like this as these gloves are one size fits all so they have to be able to go over lots of different sized hands.
After use I always make sure I hang the gloves up so they dry and don't get mouldy although after a couple of weeks you do need to replace them but priced at only a couple of pounds for the pair they are one beauty item you can splurge on.
As a self confessed beauty product addict I can't help myself when it comes to testing new things. Perhaps it's the shiny packaging that gets you or perhaps it's the promise to get the body of Giselle that draws you in...
Well, if there is one thing that I always read these "super models" do it's exfoliate and body brush. Get rid of that cellulite. Banish those bumps and have perfect, non flaky skin... As some of my other reviews will explain I do like the good old fashion methods of doing things, so I tend to stick to my routines - And for exfoliating that normally consists of a brush and a body scrub. Well, what you will also see is that, I travel. A lot, and if there is something that will get me a short cut and make my life easier I am always willing to test it.
The idea behind the exfoliating gloves is that you put the mitts on and rub your legs in light circles and the rough texture of the glove buffs away all those imperfections. So, as they were highly recommended I got a pair and had a go -
I have to say I was really pleased with them, they worked well and were really great to use on those especially hard to reach places like your back, the backs of your arms and your shoulders. They literally are a glove that you put on in the shower so it saves you having to faff about with all your products and, more often than not, contort yourself into interesting shapes to reach the middle of your back!
As the product is so cheap it makes it a great bargain and I would certainly recommend them: But I will recommend them with a couple of warnings/informative points -
If like me, you have little hands, the gloves are a little bit big so, when wet, they tend to start to slide down your hand (Even though the wrist band is pretty tight) Also, and I'm sure it's because of the material they are made from you need to make sure you hang them out properly and wash them regularly as they tend to start to smell otherwise.
I would say it is worth it if you are prepared to replace or wash them often. In my opinion they were worth the money, and I certainly have a couple of pairs in my cupboard to take with me when I am off on my travels (They were on offer) but I personally will stick to some good old fashioned contorting, elbow grease, and exfoliating body wash as I personally find that my skin is in better condition when I do.
I bought these a while back but only recently started using them. I paid around £2.50 for them and got them in store from Boots. The gloves are basic in style and actually, from a distance rather look like wooly gloves due to the bright colours available. The colours to choose from are as follows - white, purple, pink etc. I have them in a light baby blue shade. The gloves are quite soft to the touch but the texture is very rough when I move the glove across my skin. Adding pressure is not really neccessary as it is effective from just gently exfoliating. They are really easy to use although the first few times that I wore them I felt a bit weird, because wearing gloves in the bath felt a bit like wearing socks in the bath, but once i got used to them i was fine. I also sometimes use these when I am dressed before I go out and just use them on my face in conjunction with an exfoliating face mask.
These are not the most powerful or harsh exfoliators available, however they aren't too soft either. They are not harsh enough for me to not use them on my face, which is good, as with my other exfoliating gloves from a different brand I wouldn't dream of using them on my face as they are much harsher than these. These gloves work well on both my face, neck and torso and when using them they don't cause me any discomfort. I use mine by applying a bit of body lotion to my skin and rubbing it in with the gloves. This process is easy and I just rub the gloves on an area on my body that I feel needs a good old clean, such as my legs, and rub it in circular motions until i'm satisfied with the results. It usually takes just 5 minutes before my legs feel much better - more refreshed, clean and velvety soft. Without sounding gross, I find it removes the thin layer of dead, dry skin that i get on my legs once in a while. The gloves help in spreading all the lotion around and rubbing it in however any coloured lotion - white specifically seems to stain them and it is hard to get the bits of lotion out from each crack, so I always make sure to wash them several times, which gets rid of most of it but not all.
Now I don't want anyone to think I am an absolute weirdo, but I have actually exfoliated my lips with these several times. They make them feel so soft afterwards and it's not painful at all, just a little uncomfortable, but it's worth it! The gloves gets rid of dry skin and flakes really effectively and with daily use leaves my skin extremely soft - i've noticed a massive change in the few months i've been using them. They are compatible with body scrubs, soap etc and they wash well so there are no hygiene issues with them at all. The only downside is that the colour has chipped on mine and there are big white patches on them, which makes them look really cheap and ugly. They also take ages to dry, but apart from that I would reccomend them.
So we all know we need to exfoliate, 'sloughing of dead skin cells' as the magazines tell us every year when summers round the corner.
But really they're right.
However it's not something that you can do once in a blue moon it needs to be regular,
and in all honesty I can't stand body scrubs! Messy, granules lefts all over your bath and shower, oils that get in your hair and everywhere else. Can't stand them.
Exfoliating gloves are the lazy girls dream, and even better. They work.
I've been using exfoliating gloves or atleast 5 years. Everyday. That sounds like hard work right? like your giving away all your free time to stand in a shower exfoliating. But when your in their washing anyway just pop the gloves on and leave the shower smoother and softer with no extra effort.
On the odd day when I do have time I do like to spend a little extra time really working the gloves over my skin in circular movements to really get it soft.
At the end of the day we need to exfoliate to keep our skin smooth, to get ready to fake tan, to help all them lotions and potions we shell out for actually work their magic and sink in to our skin, help moisteriser sink in quicker and work better, to stop cellulite, to avoid in grown hairs, getting rid of them awful red bumps on the back of your arms that women are always prone too! the advantages are endless and with the gloves it really is as simple as a squeeze of your favourite body wash in the palm of your goved hand, and do as you usually would.
Little and often is by far the best way to exfoliate (the gloves are gentle enough to never scratch or damage skin unlike rougher scrubs you can buy)
They're cheap, easily available. Bloomin' awesome if you ask me.
I always like to make sure that my skin is in good condition, but recently my skin has been feeling quite rough, and not as smooth as it usually is. I have never actually exfoliated my skin before, ive only exfoliated my face. For some of you who don't know what exfoliating is, well it is basically removing the dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin. Exfoliating has many benefits, such as it makes your skin smooth, and it is also good to exfoliate before using fake tan, as the tan will last longer! You can exfoliate using a scrub, or you can use something like a sponge, the way I exfoliated was by using Boots exfoliating gloves.
Now I have said some information about exfoliating, I will tell you more about the product. I got the exfoliating gloves from Boots for around £2.50 (I can't remember the exact price). I think this is actually a good price seeing as the gloves won't 'run out' and they will last forever. I was put off buying a scrub as I knew I would need a lot of the scrub to cover my body so it would run out after a while and then I would just have to spend money on buying another scrub.
The gloves I got was in purple as that was the only colour I could see in the shop, but I have heard they come in other colours too. The gloves come in one size, but when you put them on they kind of stretch so I'm pretty sure that they'll fit almost everyone.
I use the gloves in the bath as I find that that is the easiest time to use them. When using them I only felt the need to use one of the gloves as I didn't see the point in using both of the gloves. To use them I just poured some shower gel on my skin, and then put the glove on my hand and in circular motions I massaged the shower gel into my skin. I found that it is easiest to pour the shower gel on my skin rather then pour the shower gel into the hand with the glove on as if you pour it onto the glove then it kind of just soaks into the glove and so the shower gel doesn't go on your skin as well.
It was really easy to use the glove, and I didn't have any problems with it. I rubbed in circular motions quite hard as I wanted all the dead skin cells to be removed, I found that even though I pressed down hard, the gloves still didn't hurt my sensitive skin. When using the gloves it is obviously quite hard to exfoliate your back, but to be honest my back didn't even need exfoliating.
Now for the results, I can quite happily say that I was actually amazed with the results. I did one leg, stopped and then felt my other leg then felt the leg I had just exfoliated, and the difference was amazing. The leg I had just exfoliated was so much smoother, and when I ran my hand along my leg, it was much softer. I was very pleased with the results and couldn't ask for anything better! For the best results when I got out the bath I moisturised my skin as well, and it felt so incredibly soft.
The gloves are easy to use, they are a good price, they last, and they give brilliant results. I couldn't be happier! I now exfoliate with these gloves once a week, and I would be lost without them. Definitely a brilliant purchase.
I came across these gloves by chance - I was shopping with a friend and she suggested that I use them - as I am into all things that keep me looking young and beautiful. Wow!! What a find!! On first glance, you would not be mistaken if you think that they will scratch the skin off your bones, however, on actual performance - truly magnificent! I thought I had floated away when I had finished using it for the first time.
The great thing with the gloves is - they are a pair so your whole body is treated at the same time! They help to remove the top layer of dirt - I was surprised there was! They are awesome to use in the shower, sauna or steam after a workout! My skin feels like silk after every use! There was a tendency to get carried away and use them every day - I have found (for me) twice a week is sufficient enough to keep the skin looking and feeling fresh! I have already had a few people comment on the glow of my skin once I have used the gloves!
Be careful where you use them if you get carried away!!!!!
I have problems with my skin on my arms, I've been to the GP, and they've given me creams, pills and told me to use special soaps, they didn't work. I hate my arms, and in the summer I was hoping to go swimming and out sunbathing, but I wanted to get rid of these stubborn spots on my arms. So a friend recommended me to try exfoliating gloves, and noticed then in Boots and thought I'd give it a go, fingers crossed!
The product is 2 gloves, which are white, and are one size fits all, but are a suitable size for anyone's hands, as they are very big. And they fitted my hands like a glove (no pun intended!) but if you have bigger hands, thinking for about the men that might use the exfoliating gloves, then you don't have to necessarily have to wear the gloves to get the benefits on the skin. The glove is rough in texture, but not to rough, so it's like sandpaper, thankfully! The gloves are meant to be reused.
To use the gloves, you just put them on your hands, and use on the area you want. The exfoliating gloves are used to remove dead and rough skin, such as elbows, back and arms. I personally used the gloves on my arms, I have an area on the top of my arms which is spotty and rough, and I hoped the gloves would help, as nothing else has seemed to have worked. The use of the gloves was really easy, you just gently rub the area in circles, as it can also improve the circulation in the body. Using the glove might also help with cellulite problems, bonus! Try not to rub to hard, as it might cut and hurt the skin, causing more damage.
The effects of using the exfoliating gloves was seen after the first use, my arms felt much softer, all the dead skin had been removed, which made the softness reappear, but also there was visible difference in how my arms looked, with the redness of the spots, but also the general appearance meant you couldn't really tell they were there. For cellulite care, I didn't notice effects after the first use, but I knew I wouldn't. The glove wasn't to harsh on my skin, which I was worried about because of my sensitive skin, but it felt nice and it didn't leave my skin feel sore or damaged. The long term effects (after using for a month) I noticed a massive difference in how my skin looked much more normal, and although the spots hadn't completely gone, the appearence of them have really decreased, and the redness had gone down. For the cellulite care, I did notice a real difference for really predominant lines, and they had faded, but not completely went away, but it did look much better then before.
I would highly recommend the Boots exfoliating gloves for anyone, male, female, and any age, as it works really well, as it removes dead and rough skin, makes skin much softer and helps with certain skin problems, such as spots on skin, which has helped me no end. Results come after 1 day of using it, what more could you ask!
Boots Exfoliating Glove is only available at Boots stores and online, and costs £2.66, but often is on offers with other Boots items.
I often hear that we should all be exfoliating our skin but personally, I never do. I'm usually in a rush in the mornings as we all are and therefore I do not have time. However, the other day in Boots I saw these gloves for £2.66. As I was getting a few other bits in there anyway I decided to pick these up as they looked like a quick and easy way to take better care of my skin. I picked these up in purple but I also saw white and blue versions.
==Why should we exfoliate?==
We should exfoliate to remove the dead skin from our bodies and any impurities that are on our skin. It will also remove dry skin leaving you with softer skin which looks healthier.
==What are the gloves like?==
You get two gloves in the packet which I thought was especially good value for money as the packs from other brands tended to have only one glove. I think having two gloves is much easier as you dont have to switch the glove over halfway through your shower to get the other arm and shoulder etc! The gloves have a slightly rough exterior and they look exactly the same as the ones above. I have medium sized hands and the gloves fit perfectly, they are not too tight or too big and the elasticated wrist means that they stay on well.
==How do I use the gloves?==
To use the gloves you simply wear them to wash in the shower how you usually would with your shower gel. The gloves work better if you work in a circular motion.
==How quick is it?==
Using the gloves is very quick and easy, it doesn't take any longer than a regular shower would apart from putting the gloves on, taking them off and rinsing them.
==Does it work?==
Yes. My skin felt very soft after just one use of these gloves and it looks noticeably healthier too. I no longer have sections of dry skin on my elbows and for the amount of time it took I thought the results were brilliant.
==How often should I use them?==
Although my skin has not become sore or damaged after using these I would only recommend using them a couple of times a week just incase.
==Would I recommend them?==
Yes, I would certainly recommend these. They are a quick and easy way to take better care of your skin and they are available for a very good price.
==Boots Exfoliating Gloves==
I am a one for making sure my skin is silky smooth and this involves a vigorous routine of products that scrub away at all the dead skin on particularly troublesome areas such as knees and elbows. This is an absolute must if planning on applying some sort of fake tan or even a tinted moisturiser which has a small amount of fake tan in.
I find that using the shower puffs is okay and using products that are designed for this is great but I always like to have a pair of these exfoliating gloves to make sure I get all the areas that are sometimes missed. I have tried a whole lot of different types of these gloves some are cheaper than others but these Boots ones seem to be one of the best that I have found so far.
The gloves are a little more expensive than I have bought in the past as they retail for £2.66p at the moment in Boots but they can be found in a lot of other places for around the 99p region. Superdrug has them for £1 but I find these ones are soon less scratchy and seem to only last for half a dozen or so uses.
These Boots ones can be purchased in a variety of colours which include a turquoise blue colour, a bright pink colour or a plain white colour. I opted for the turquoise colour on all the occasions I have bought them but I don't think the colour has any bearing on the overall use of the product.
The gloves themselves come in only one size but they have a sort of elastic feel to them which means that they will probably stretch to fit any hand shape or size and are pretty comfortable to wear especially on the first use. I find putting them on when they are damp can sometimes be a little trickier than the first time they are used but again this is really no massive problem.
The idea is that you wear these gloves on your hands and use a shower gel or the like to massage you skin (preferably in a circular motion) and this will remove any dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and leave it feeling silky smooth. The circular motion of the rubbing will also help to promote a good even skin tone and reduce the appearance of cellulite over time.
The gloves really do work and work really well too. They are not excessively harsh on the skin but harsh enough to remove every trace of rough skin and the feel and look of the skin after showering is so much better when using these gloves as opposed to using just a regular shower puff. I find that if I don't use a really good moisturiser after I have scrubed myself with these gloves that my skin does feel a little dry and battered so I will always use a baby oil before getting out of the shower to soften my skin and then on top of that use a really thick and creamy moisturiser to make sure that the soft skin doesn't end up looking dry and pained.
The fact that these glvoes last for a really good time means that more often than not it is far better to pay a little bit more for this particular brand. I think they last more than double the amount of time that the cheaper gloves last and give a better finish to the skin too. I do find myself grumbiling at the fact that they cost a good deal more than the cheap ones but I keep reminding myself that in the long run it probably works out cheaper because I have to buy less pairs every year!
On the whole I can't really fault these gloves. You get what you pay for and these are a really good purchase. They work well and are so simple to use. My skin never looks better than after it has had a good scrub down with a pair of these gloves and I would highly recommend them to everyone.
I think for this reason they are well worthy of a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and a very high recommendation.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
Exfoliate, exfoliate,thats the secret to healthy skin, so we are told on most of the beauty programmes. Well i am in my 20's, surely i can get away with it a few more years cant i??
Well i have always used the scrunchies, in a multitude of colours with the string loop to hang on the shower. These are great for a few weeks, and then the tight knot holding the scrunchie together loosens and you end up with a long strip of wirey plastic.
For a treat, and after listening to Gok Wan yapping on about exfoliating, i thought i would treat myself. For £2.66 for a pair of white exfoliating gloves, i thought id give them a go.
These gloves claim to rid the skin of dead particles and impurites leaving it feeling soft. But not to be used on sore or broken skin (and i am not suprised!!)
The gloves come in 1 size and are made of a tough fabric that i am assuming contains elastine as these gloves do stretch to fit most hands.
The idea with these gloves,is to put them on, and add shower gel or soap to your hands, rub for a lather and scrub away.
I would say to be a little careful though, because once you have soap on the gloves, if you need a little more your hands become very slippery and i have often dropped my bottle!!
I would also be careful when cleaning your 'intimiate areas' because these gloves seem a little rough, be warned.
My honest opinion, these gloves are kind of no pain no gain.. Using these gloves on your skin is like using a scouring pad. Ouch!! I thought i must be bleeding by the end of it, but i wasnt. It was quite a painful experience, but my skin has kind of adapted to it to be honest.
The results are great to be fair. My skin certainly feels softer especially around the elbows and knees and with a good moistursing regime.
I think the key to this is to be prepared that it is going to be uncomfortable to begin with, but i think that the results are worth it!!
I wouldn't class the skin on my body to be overly sensitive, and in the past I have used countless body scrubs and loofah's without discomfort. That all changed after using the Boots Exfoliating Gloves. In the interest of a fair review I have - somehow managed - to test them a couple times, however, my poor skin just cannot take anymore.
I find them incredibly rough, and can only describe exfoliating my body with them as excrutiating. Having read other reviews on these gloves, I am wondering if I just happened to be sent the pair that was made out of sandpaper! How anyone can find the will to re-use these time and again is beyond me.
The gloves are incredibly coarse and rough when dry, once wet they seem to ease slightly.
I used these in the shower with my moisturising shower creme (one I have used for ages), and gently used the gloves over my whole body.
The first time I used them I noticed a red irritated rash on my foot, and then my legs started burning. After the second time of using the gloves - a few days later, my foot rash flared up again and my legs had become really irritated in patches for days afterwards.
Maybe if you have extremely rough, dry skin you would benefit from the Boots Exfoliating Gloves. However, if you have any issues with skin sensitivity at all, I recommed just staying away from these altogether.
I have gone back to dry body brushing before showering..... it's just safer for my skin that way!
Oh how I love exfoliating my skin, I love to do it on my face or body as it makes me feel nice and clean and very refreshed indeed and I have been using this method on my skin for many years, and these gloves are a must for me, for my body, as for me it makes life so much easier, as I can just place them on my hands and add a body wash or soap and massage it into my skin and it means for me, that I do not have to keep picking up the sponge, as I tend to drop it from time to time.
These gloves have a hard texture to them, they come in a variety of colours, I have recently bought a light purple pair, but they have white, and pink colours but I am not sure if any other colour is available but these are my usual colours that I buy.
I buy mine from Boots and I bought a pair approximately a month ago and they were priced at only £2.60, they are extremely good value for money and very good quality, they do not scratch my skin as they are used gently to massage which ever body product is suitable for the skin, and they are nice to wear on the hands, they are easy to move the fingers inside the gloves as they are nice and light on the hands.
Once the body wash etc has been placed onto these gloves and worked into my skin I can feel my skin feeling nice and clean, and I can feel it feels so much more refreshed, the dead skin is removed perfectly with these gloves, and once used I can really feel the difference.
They can be used with or without any soap or shower gel etc, but I prefer to use them with a product on them as I find that feels a lot better and I have used them without any soap etc and it has exfoliated just as well in my opinion, but using a product is just my preference.
When they are being used I circulate my hands to massage into my skin and I do it nice and gently and so I do not make my skin sore or irritate it in any way, and I find that my skin is nice and refreshed and ready to apply my body moisturisers onto my skin in the usual way.
My skin always feels much softer after using these gloves along with my usual beauty routine and I find that my skin is in a much better condition for exfoliating, as if I do not do it, I feel I have not completed my routine properly.
I use these gloves approximately twice a week on my body and my skin then keeps in tip top condition and feels so much better.
These last for quite some time and are well worth the price and the quality of them is a very good one and I usually just rinse them and hang them to dry and they dry in no time at all, ready for my next use of them.
I highly recommend these as I think they are excellent value for money and they work a treat on the body.
It is recommended not to use them on infected or broken skin as they can irritate and if any irritation is caused using these it is best to stop using them or maybe the massage you are doing with them is a little too hard for your skin and so it is best to find your own routine of using them to find how hard you can massage your skin, I have sensitive skin and they are fine for me.
Just love to exfoliate wearing gloves.
I give these 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review.
I suffer from quite dry and scaly skin, not a pretty picture I can assure you, so I do like to exfoliate often to scrub off those dead skin cells and reveal softer smoother skin.
I've tried loads of body scrubs and while they smell gorgeous, and do a fab job I must admit I hate the feeling on my finger tips. They feels quite numb within such a short space of time that I only tend to exfoliate small areas before giving up and getting out the shower. I also hate the gritty bits left on the shower base, and the endless cleaning involved in removing the debris.
That's why I purchased a pair of Boots Exfoliating Gloves at a bargain price of only £2.50 or so a few weeks ago. I found them to be much cheaper than many of the body scrubs I have tried with usually cost in the region of £10 plus.
These gloves are simple to use, just pop on your hands and dispense a generous amount of shower cream, lather up and get scrubbing. I tend to use a moisturising shower product rather than a gel since I find that exfoliating can be a little harsh somtimes, so anything with added moisturisers such as aloe vera or even fragrant oils are ideal. This still gives a luxury feeling and aroma without hurting my finger tips.
They fit onto hands quite snuggly, so don't tend to fall off as the cuff has quite a lot of elastics to hold them in place. They are made from a nylon with a bobbled type surface which is quite rough and acts as the exfoliant. They can also be used without a soap type product but I don't like to use them this way. After use, just rinse out all soap, and air dry. They can be popped into the washing machine between uses to keep them clean if you like me are a fan of false tan!
They are also said to promote healthy circulation, which I couldn't really comment on, as I'm not sure how I would even begin to measure this.
After I've exfoliated with these gloves my skin feels and looks much softer and smoother. I like to finish off with a good quality body lotion or butter just to maintain that smoothness. My legs are less scaly and my fingers don't tingle. Great results!
Would I recommend this product? Yes definintely, if you like to exfoliate but hate the feel of the scrub on your finger tips. They are much cheaper than buying body scrubs and last for ages. They can be machine washed to keep clean and come in a few different colours. Mine are blue, not white as in the photo. Go on, get scrubbing!
