A Bit Of Rough - Japanese wash cloths

Exfoliating wash cloths for body

I'm sure everyone know the importance of exfoliating their skin. Whether you are preparing for a self tan or helping a self tan to fade more evenly or maybe to prevent ingrowing hairs after shaving / waxing. I'm also sure everyone has their favourite shower accessories for cleansing & exfoliating their body. Whether it's one of those shower scrunchies, a pair of exfoliation gloves or a more traditional loofah.

A Bit Of Rough is a Japanese style wash cloth that combines the best bits of all of the above, giving the perfect level of exfoliation without being too harsh on the skin.
Pre-ABOR I've used a combination of all three previously mentioned accessories to cleanse and exfoliate my body at one point or another.
Shower scrunchies are great to foam shower products and your skin feels cleansed afterwards but they don't give much of an exfoliation. 
Exfoliation gloves on the other hand give a great exfoliation (although can be a little scratchy) but they are rubbish at holding any product. Which means you need to use more shower gel than you normally would to feel properly clean.
Back loofahs although great for reaching behind your back and giving an exfoliation, that is it' only purpose! Who wants to have separate shower accessories just to give themselves a full body exfoliation? Especially when it comes to travelling.

A Bit Of Rough is a piece of exfoliating cloth measuring 100cm x 30cm. Which can be either scrunched up into a ball or held folded. It holds & foams your shower products really well, similar to a shower scrunchie. However it gives the most amazing exfoliation, much better than those exfoliation gloves. Plus because it's a meter long, when unfolded you can reach behind you and exfoliate your back, similar to a back loofah.
You can use your existing shower products and because the cloth is giving you all the exfoliation you need, there is no need to buy a separate body scrub thus saving you money.
It folds up really small so great for travel and It's machine washable so can used time after time.
They do state that they are gentle enough to use on the face. Although I have very sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts if I use anything too harsh. So I personally haven't used this on my face but if you're used to a facial scrub then I'm sure it would great for you.

A Bit Of Rough wash cloth costs £8 for one or £16 for three. For more information check their website here.
