I’m on a day off today, spending it with my mum for a girly day before she goes in for an operation.
I’ve been loving the thought of having an even and flawless tan, I mean who doesn’t want a bit more of a glow over the summer even if it’s not a tan that’s ten shades darker than your normal skin tone?
In my quest for this I’ve recently picked up these two from Boots Botanics range; the Loofah and Bamboo Buffer and the Sisal and Bamboo Buffer.
In store the Loofah buffer felt quite rough and the Sisal buffer less so, so I was interested to see how they fared at buffing my skin to glorious silky smoothness and aiding me in keeping some kind of tan in a flawless stage for as long as possible.
As I said, in store this one felt the softest so I went for this one first. My skin is weird sometimes and although it isn’t classed as ‘sensitive’ I do feel that it can have odd reactions to things so I played it safe.
Little did i know this one would be rougher than the other when water was involved!
By no means is it abrasive on the skin but it certainly does require a large amount of foam to stop it from dragging on the skin but i do feel like I’ve been buffed to perfection after using this. My skin feels good as new particularly after application of moisturiser afterwards, it seems to sink in so much faster and my skin feels super soft.
The Loofah buffer just seemed to melt when water and shower gel was added to it, it is now no longer flat and hard and has puffed up as you would expect a normal loofah to.
I normally use the Sisal buffer once a week and then in between use the Loofah buffer as its a lot softer on the skin and I suppose in comparison is more of a polish than a scrub.
These have both definitely helped my skin improve and also have meant that I have been applying a lot more moisturiser as my skin has soaked it up.
Overall these were a bargain purchase and they were on a bogohp offer which was great and as long as you thoroughly rinse them after each use and dry them properly there shouldn’t be any reason why they won’t last you a while as well.
I do like a loofah and my family have always had one in the bathroom!
Are you a loofah or buffer fan or do you prefer scrub products?
I like the options that they both bring and think a foaming scrub such as Soap and Glory’s Pulp Friction would be really good with this….shame I’ve run out of it!
