I like having smooth skin as much as the next gal. I've tried body scrubs, polishes, and brushes. But I'd never seen anything like the Exfolimate.
The Exfolimate is a skin exfoliating tool that consists of a rounded metal blade housed in a white plastic fanshape, with a rubber cord for hanging in the shower. The idea is that, when you're thoroughly wet from the shower, you can use the Exfolimate to lightly scrape your skin at a 90-degree angle, removing dead skin cells and pore-clogging debris.
No chemicals, no soap, nothing needed except for water. You don't want to do this on dry skin. For those who do spray or tan in a bottle, this could be great for evening out the skin and ensuring a more even, longer-lasting tan. Ingrown hairs and blackheads can also be lessened by continued use of the Exfolimate.
The first time I tried the Exfolimate, I used it on my arms only. You can control the pressure, and the blade isn't sharp, so there really isn't any risk of cutting or hurting yourself. After my shower, I kinda forgot about it, and then later in the evening, I happen to touch my arm and was surprised at how soft it was! I had to go find my husband and show him! He noticed a difference, too, though he always thinks of me as his delicate flower. Haha.
The next time, I got a little more brave and used it on my face, legs, arms, and had my husband do my back. In the shower, all felt good. Afterwards, my back and the backs of my hands were super tight and in desperate need of lotion! My legs and arms were less sensitive. My face was fine after my normal application of serums and lotion. Of course, any exfoliation should be followed up with skin moisturizers, anyway, but I was used to scrubs with the moisturizers built in.
I think this would work great for those with skin that is sensitive, especially to chemical or acid exfoliators, or for those who think that sugar/salt scrubs are too smelly, messy, or expensive. The Exfolimate will last a long, long, long time, and you don't need to buy anything else to use it - you only need water to use it, and maybe a little soap to clean it.
My Exfolimate-inspired nail art is a base coat of Above The Curve Crisp Autumn Air with freehand ribbons done with Cover Girl Ever Reddy.
