I first encountered a Japanese Salux Wash Cloth during a random purchase years and years ago. Maybe my mom bought it for me, maybe I grabbed it on accident. It quickly molded in the corner of the shower.
Recently, I read an article about how it helped achieve the writer silly smooth skin. I immediately ordered it from Amazon.
The cloth was just like the one from years past. This time, I knew that it wasn’t just a weird shower accessory, but an exfoliator from the gods. Now, I hang it religiously from my shower rod every time I use it to keep it fresh and always ready to use.
The Salux wash cloth is made from a rough–but not too harsh–material. Loaded with soap, it produces that covetable thick foam. The swath of fabric is large, about 3 by 1.5 feet, so it’s perfect for shimmying up and down your back, under your thighs, and everywhere in-between.
Aside from the occasional dry brushing, the Salux is my favorite way to exfoliate. Body scrubs can feel luxorious, but they are best left to special occasions. I find they often end up with a pool of water in the jar or dropped all over the tub floor. The Salux stands by as a trusty friend who is guaranteed to scrub you clean.
The best part? It’s affordable. For three, it comes in under $12 on Amazon (my preferred method of shopping). Pick it up in pink, yellow or blue (I use Pink). If you don’t believe me, believe Amazon. With over 877 reviews and a 4.7 rating (as of this writing) you know it’s got to be good.
Want to be smooth beyond belief? Try tearing out all of your leg hair with an epilator (seriously, I recommend it).
