Take care of your face too with MicrodermaMitt®'s Face Mitt.

MicrodermaMitt®

Birchbox Breakdown

Flaky elbows and scaly legs are no joke. This exfoliating mitt works harder than your usual washcloth to get rid of dead skin and dirt. You'll have smoother, healthier skin. Plus, it helps prevent razor bumps and ingrown hairs.

How to Use

Once or twice a week in the shower, use the mitt to scrub your body, concentrating on rough zones like your elbows and knees. You can use it in conjunction with a body wash or on its own—all you need is water to wash the dead cells away.

Worth Every Penny
Purchased

I've always had relatively rough skin, and I've struggled with keratosis pilaris for years. I took a gamble on this cloth because no loofah or other exfoliator has truly lived up to the hype.

This one TOTALLY does. It works best if on damp, not completely wet, skin, and I usually leave one leg out of the shower stream for a minute before scrubbing with the mitt. You don't have to scrub hard for the friction to pull dead skin right off.

My skin has never been silkier or smoother, and my biggest skin struggle - my keratosis pilaris - is lighter than it's ever been, and I have a feeling I'll never struggle as much as I did before.

Lastly, it is recommended that you use this product with olive oil soap. If you have skin problems, like keratosis pilaris or clogged pore issues, I wouldn't use olive oil soap at all, let alone with this mitt. Very few people can use pure oil soap without it clogging their pores. I use a regular body wash and let it all rinse off before using the mitt. That is just as, if not more, effective than the olive oil soap.

I love it
Purchased

The first time I used this I was hesitant that it would work. OMG was I wrong. It feels rough after it gets wet and exfoliated by sensitive skin like nothing else I've used. Got a nice close shave after using this on my legs. This is a great product and would make a great stocking stuffer for your best friends!

GREAT exfoliation!
Purchased

I bought both the body and the face MicrodermaMitt and I love them! I have been exfoliating my face since I was in my twenties, so I don't see the results on my face but I know that it is helping. When I use it on my body the results are amazing! I have used a loofah or exfoliating bath gloves when I bathe or shower for years so I didn't expect my body to need much exfoliation but I was wrong. I followed the directions which advises that you soak for about ten minutes (that can be done in the shower by washing your hair and bathing before you exfoliate). It also says not to use soap with it. Even after bathing and rinsing the amount of dead skin that is removed is astounding plus massaging your skin helps break down cellulite.

I used this product to death in the shower. You can see the dead skin slough right off. Even bought an additional one. Helps keep my skin smooth.

Fantastic Exfoliation, with Minor Irritation on Recently Waxed/Shaved Skin
Purchased

So, the primary reason I bought the Body Mitt was to help prevent ingrown hairs and pore irritation after waxing or epilating (or occasionally shaving) my legs. Turns out, I have to be very careful when exactly I use it, because it can also CAUSE as much irritation as it PREVENTS, though the little red bumps go away much quicker. While these results have improved as I've gotten more savvy about how soon to use the mitt after hair removal, the results have remained a little mixed.

That said, for the rest of my body, it has done wonders to soften and smooth my skin, including areas (like my elbows) that are prone to drying and dead skin patches. Even if I ultimately look elsewhere for my legs, I think the Body Mitt might just hang around in my shower for that reason alone.

On the Fence
Purchased

I'm kinda on the fence about this product. It does exfoliate better than a typical loofah, but I don't see the "wow" in it like others have. Maybe it's because I already exfoliate and use lotions daily that I can't tell a major difference.

It is made from good quality fabric with good stitching. I'm by no means cheap at all, and I have no problems spending money on products (just ask Birchbox), but I do think the price tag on this item is way too high for what it is. I think $10 cheaper would be more realistic.

This product is pretty much a tougher loofah.

LOVE!
Purchased

The MicrodermaMitt Body Mitt is so easy to use and the results are immediate! You can actually see dead skin and dirt fall away as you use it. I can't wait to see the results after multiple uses.

I bought 2!
Purchased

I bought the body mitt after using the face mitt. This removes the dead skin without causing irritation, which is always a challenge with my sensitive skin. I use only this with water and my skin has never been clearer or softer. It also really helps if you use it after shaving!

Wasn't what I expected - still love it
Purchased

The body mitt has certain pros and cons, but overall I really like it. Getting the bad out of the way, the design is a bit annoying because at certain angles the mitt can slip right off your hand. Annoying. The texture was not what I expected either, however in water it is great. My skin felt amazing after using it and I really do like it, I recommend it if you are looking for something a little tougher than a loofah, but softer than a brush.
