Hi everyone
and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm back with a small review about a product I have never tried before.


Before writing this blog I didn't even know what Loofah or Luffa was.
I had to do some research on the internet to find out what it was...

I had an idea that this product was a natural "thing"
but thanks to WIKIPEDIA once again today I have learnt something new

that's what Luffa is quoting wikipedia article

"...Luffa is a genus of tropical and subtropical vines in the cucumber (Cucurbitaceae) family.
In everyday non-technical usage, the luffa, also spelled loofah, usually means the fruit of the two species L. aegyptiaca and L. acutangula. The fruit of these species is cultivated and eaten as a vegetable. The fruit must be harvested at a young stage of development to be edible. The vegetable is popular in China and Vietnam.[2] When the fruit is fully ripened it is very fibrous. The fully developed fruit is the source of the loofah scrubbing sponge which is used in bathrooms and kitchens. Luffa are not frost-hardy, and require 150 to 200 warm days to mature...."

Anyway this Loofah pads are available in Superdrug, and I'm not too sure if you can get them somewhere else, I only seen it there.

These are natural scrubbing pads

I keep one of these in my shower and I use it when I'm in there
wet without even a cleansing product
I feel that the steam of the water and this loofah pad softly and gently help my skin to get clean

It feels so soft
It is nor harsh at all, not painful
something in the past I used to use harsher "sponges" to exfoliate
this is no gentle it doesn't feel like you are actually exfoliating
It doesn't irritate my skin
and it leaves it super soft

Once I use it I wash it and leave to dry

I would recommend it to all of you who struggle with scrubbing/exfoliation
with a very sensitive skin

I love the fact that I'm using a 100% natural product 

have you ever tried it?

leave me a comment and let me know

  1. I've never seen loofah pads before... I mean you get those sponges (which look exactly the same for faces) but loofah pads. I'm assuming they are for the body? They seem interesting. Might pick them up whenever I pop in to superdrugs again.
