I have never been a fan of body brushes. However, after purchasing a body scrub from The Body Shop, I realized to get maximum benefit of the scrub, a body brush should be used. In addition, there have been a few times when I've showered and have ran my fingernails up my legs for scrubbing and dirt is still present (though I know that I've showered well). I came to realize that this is a sign that exfoliation is truly needed at least 2-3 times per week. I decided to invest in this body brush and it absolutely did NOT disappoint. I've used the brush dry and wet on my entire body. Pair use with the body scrub, your skin will feel very clean, and very smooth, and nicely scented. I am a total believer in body brushes and body scrubs now and believe everyone should be using these products at least 2-3 times per week.
