There are two ways to use the Exfoliating Mitt for the best results:
For deep exfoliation:
Prep your skin and use the mitt on damp skin with nothing else:
1. To prep, cleanse your skin with soap (without the mitt) and rinse thoroughly.
2. Rinse the Exfoliating Mitt and wring out excess water.
3. Gently scrub back and forth or circular (without shower gel or soap). Dead skin cells satisfyingly roll-off revealing new skin. Use shower gel afterward.
For a power shower (turn your body wash into a scrub):
Use the mitt as a loofah:
1. Rinse your body and Exfoliating Mitt.
2. Put your shower gel or soap on the Exfoliating Mitt.
3. Gently scrub your way to glowing skin and unmatched freshness.
How often can I use the Exfoliating Mitt?
For deep exfoliation, once a week.
As a loofah with body wash, up to once a day.
Which skin types can use the Exfoliating Mitt?
All body skin types can use the Exfoliating Mitt. However, please don't use it on damaged or broken, irritated, or sunburned skin.
Can I use the Exfoliating Mitt on my face?
Let's face it! The Exfoliating Mitt is designed and tested on body skin.
If you can't resist using it on your face, use very gentle pressure and minimal scrubbing. Whatever you do, refrain from using the mitt on sensitive, sunburned, damaged, or irritated skin.
How hard should I scrub for deep exfoliation?
Less is more in this case!
Even though you want a deep exfoliation, don't press hard or scrub excessively. The mitt will do its job. The key is to flatten your hand on your skin and use your hand's weight to polish gently without body wash or soap. Just make sure your skin is well-prepped.
To prep the skin, wash with a body wash or soap (without the mitt) to remove body care residue and rinse with warm water.
Tip: We recommend not to wet your hair during deep exfoliation. When haircare flows onto the skin, it inhibits exfoliation.
How is the Exfoliating Mitt different from a body-scrub?
It's a world of difference!
The textured fabric feels just like a granular body-scrub but gives a better grip, to scrub more body parts, like the ears, and avoids melting or falling out of your hands.
Dead skin cells get deeply exfoliated instead of buffed superficially.
The mitt has no micro-beads that endanger ocean life.
Essential oils can be added afterward for maximum results. After exfoliation, skincare absorbs better!
When traveling (again), the mitt is feather-light and prevents adding to the TSA liquid allowance. So more room for more skincare!
TIP: make a difference in your shower routine and exfoliate the ears, pubic area, booty, cuticles like no other scrub can!
Can men use the Exfoliating Mitt?
Yes! Absolutely! Everybody with skin, including men, benefit from exfoliation. If you don't really care for smooth, exfoliated skin with unclogged pores, you'll love feeling super fresh when you supercharge your shower game by using the exfoliating mitt with your body wash.
Fun fact. In Morocco, wherever there is a women's Hammam, there is a men's Hammam next to it, and young and old visit to exfoliate their skin. At home, they use the Exfoliating Mitt instead of a loofah.
How often should I replace my Exfoliating Mitt?
With active use between 3 and 6 months.
The mitt is reusable, and with a little care, you can use it for a long time!
Rinse it thoroughly after use and hang it out to dry before storing it.
Hand wash it separately in cold water and line dry it in the shade. Don't iron or bleach the mitt.
