    There are some reviews that comment on the pain of using this product. When I started dry skin brushing, even the soft bristled brushes hurt a bit. I had to be very gentle. But having been detoxing for months now and dry skin brushing is a regular part of my daily routine, I find this product to be fabulous and much more effective on skin that's been conditioned to this process. I'm buying a second to keep in my gym bag.....great to use after time in an infrared sauna. You'll feel like a new person!

    This brush is so rough it hurts and I can't use it. It looks great, it's all nature (which is mostly why I bought it) and I'm sure it wouldn't break easily, but I can't use it so it doesn't make a difference. I don't have sensitive skin, but it was so painful. My husband tried it and he couldn't use it either. We couldn't help but laugh. It could take the paint off walls. Maybe I'll try to use it as a dish scrubber, but it might scratch my pans.

      I have lots of dry skin... this really helps with my exfoliation efforts. I didn't find the brush too rough at all.... could be a wee bit rougher for my purpose and needs.

        Comments about Earth Therapeutics Tampico Vegetable Fiber Skin Brush, 1 ea:

        I have had this product for two weeks and I shake the excess water off after every use and hang dry it. The bristles are already rotting with mildew and turning black. Which surprised me because my bathroom is really very clean and I don't have a mildew/mold problem. Maybe that is a draw back of all natural untreated products?? I will probably end up throwing it out since I can't use harsh chemicals to clean it and then use it on my skin which will cause irritation. Maybe if you use your hair dryer or something to get it dry immediately after use, it would last longer?? I just don't have time for that.

            I honestly don't find this ridiculously painful at all. As long as you're not scrubbing yourself like you scrub your floors, it'll just feel somewhat scratchy and actually kind of nice! I like using this on damp skin just before applying body wash/soap... I find it doesn't fare so well if you use it WITH soap (save that for body puffs or sponges!). My skin definitely feels much better all over after using this for a week.

                Read in a raw foods book about the benefits of a skin brush, so I had to find one and try it out. It is total worth it. I have Keratosis Pilaris and this brush has been great at reducing the visibility of the bumps. I've gotten complements on my skin just a week after using it nightly. I find the nightly brushing very relaxing - its like a reward for my skin after a long day. As others have pointed out - the bristles are stiff, so I use a light touch when brushing (I dry brush). Also be sure to read the instructions to get the best benefits. Highly recommend.

                    This is the first stiff brush that I found that lives up to its name. It really does the sloughing job it is suppose to. The bristles are stiff but not harsh.

                    If I were to find one slight drawback, it is that I wish the handle was a couple of inches longer. Barring that, it is the perfect brush for me. I am going to buy another one.

                          it does hurt at first because of the course bristles - but if it didn't, it wouldn't be doing it's job

                          I started by tilting the brush at a 45 degree angle until my skin got used to the roughness (about 4 days) and then I could handle it flat against my skin

                          i use this in the morning before my shower & after 2 weeks have noticed softer skin & noticeable reduction of cellulite.

                          I thought it might actually toughen my skin because of the abrasiveness of the bristles, but quite the opposite

                          it hasn't seemed to help with my stretch marks yet, but it's only been 2 weeks & those suckers have been there for nearly a decade

                          it definitely helps wake me up :)

                                I was looking for a back scruber that is on the more rough side. I have found that most back scrubbers are too soft and just don't give a good scrubbing, however this brush was on the complete othre end of the spectrum. The bristles were too hard and it felt like I was using sand paper to wash my back. Even covered in soap and having hot water run over the bristle for a couple of minutes didn't soften them up. Another issue is mold. The finish on the wood was not well done and after a week of showering you can tell the water damage was already starting to take effect.

                                Overall not worth the buy. Going to try another one.

                                Previous reviews claim this was too rough--but that's its purpose. It's so much better than ANY of those in bath shops or drugstores. It exfoliates dead skin and leaves skin baby soft.

                                  dry brushing is a great alternative to those lotions and creams we use. Quick and simple....have beautiful soft skin in just a few days......no more lotions.
