My Skin Is Sooooo Smooooooth: The Body Shop Facial Buffer

Pros:exfoliates nicely, inexpensive

Cons:gotta be careful not to over-use it

The Bottom Line: The Bottom Line is Smoooooooooooooooth....


I want to do my best to take care of my skin, so I know I need to exfoliate regularly. It's a process that is very important because it removes dead skin cells so that the new layers of skin are revealed, so it can breathe and so the products that I put on my skin aren't being wasted on dead skin. Unfortunately my skin is very sensitive and can be quite picky about what I use on it. I've used countless facial scrubs over the years and I haven't found the "perfect" one so far so I've chosen to exfoliate in another way.

The Body Shop Facial Buffer is a round pad that is about the size of the palm of my hand. The inside of the pad is foam and the outside is covered in a textured nylon. The pad is somewhat stiff but it's still flexible and easy to work with. There is a strip of fabric on one side that serves a couple of purposes, which I'll mention later in the review.

When I am going to use this Facial Buffer, I first wet my face and then I apply my cleanser thoroughly. Once my face is covered with cleanser and I've rubbed it in really good, I wet the Facial Buffer pad and put my fingers under the cloth strip so that it's easy to hold onto. Then I gently massage the buffer pad all over my face and neck in a circular motion. You don't want to do this too hard or it can be too harsh on the skin. It's very textured so I barely use any force or pressure when I'm using it, as I'm sure that overdoing it with this thing will probably cause very irritated, or possibly even raw, skin!

I know where my driest spots are so I am mindful of that while I'm using the Facial Buffer. When I'm finished I rinse rinse the buffer of all the cleanser, squeeze out the excess water and then I hang it by the fabric strip so that it can air dry. In order to keep it clean and sanitary, I wash it with warm water and anti-bacterial soap once a week. Thankfully it seems to hold up well with continued use. I am certain that it will be a long time before I have to replace it, if ever.

After using the Facial Buffer my skin is very soft and smooth, and I can definitely tell a difference in the overall texture of my skin. It does a great job at removing dead, flaky skin and it also helps clear and prevent clogged pores. I only use the Facial Buffer 2-3 times a week because it's a potent little thing and I don't want to overdo it and cause more harm than good.

I really like the Facial Buffer and I definitely recommend it to everyone since we all need to exfoliate! I'm glad that I can use this buffer with my cleanser and get a nice exfoliation since using an actual facial scrub hasn't worked out. It works very well and I'm quite pleased with it.

The Facial Buffer costs $4.50 and is available in Body Shop stores, on The Body Shop website (www.thebodyshop.com) or through a Body Shop at Home Consultant (www.thebodyshopathome.com). Thanks for reading!
