I have a confession to make… I don’t replace my shower pouf as often as I should. In fact, I can’t even remember how long I’ve had it—and only now do I realize how gross this sounds. So I suppose the hygiene gods did me a favor last week when I came across an article about something called the Salex sponge.
Hailing from Japan, this in-shower exfoliator is less like a sponge and more like a wash cloth, and a large washcloth at that. The long, rectangular shape literally goes where no shower pouf has gone before, because when you hold both ends you can get your entire back effortlessly. The nylon material promotes lots of suds, and you can toss it in the washing machine to keep it clean.
Since getting it a few weeks ago, I’ve noticed significantly less cellulite and ingrown hairs super-smooth, glowing skin.
And the best part? It’s $6. So what are you waiting for?
