    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.

      Bought this for everyday dry brushing, but man was it scratchy! I couldn't even gently*GENTLY* dry brush my husband's back and he can definitely handle a harsher scrub than I can. Maybe if it's wet it would work ok, but I ended up with a different item for dry brushing.

        This is the perfect brush to use for dry skin brushing. The vegetable fibers do not irritate the skin like synthetic fibers do. I use this brush every morning before I shower by brushing my skin with firm sweeps in the direction towards my heart (starting with my legs, then back, then front, then hands to shoulders). It exfoliates my skin, giving it a smooth feel and healthy glow after my shower. It's also very invigorating and wakes me up in the morning. After my shower I use Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil on my thighs. I have noticed a huge difference in the firmness and smoother appearance of my skin with the combination of dry skin brushing and the cellulite oil -- So glad I started this routine!!!

              I bought this brush for dry skin brushing. It serves that purpose completely. It did have a slight odor when I first got it-- I believe it was due to what the bristles are made of. I soaked the head in water with a splash of apple cider vinegar and a drop of lavender essential oil and it was gone. I use it every day and wash it once a week. I bought it in the middle of February and it still is like new.

              I use this for dry brushing 2 times a day before my shower in the morning and before I go to bed at night. I found this very affective in getting rid of dead skin cells. At first the bristles kind of hurt but over time I got used to it. I wouldn't pick anything softer because I don't think it would work as hard to scrub off dead skin. When I run through the bristles under a light, I can see skin particles flying off of the brush. This brush works very well as a back scratcher, too! My skin's now softer than before and I don't even use lotion. The only problem is this brush sheds a little.

              Pain!

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

              I bought it after reading the reviews and because it was natural. My husband used it first and told me it was kinda rough. I tried it today, once it touches my back, it causes so much pain. I can't even move it on my back. But if you have good tolerance for pain, I can see it cleans well. I am going to buy a new brush in store so I can make sure it's soft enough for me.

                This works just fine. It's a little scratchy at first, so be careful. But after several uses you will get used to it and it won't be so bad. I don't know if all dry brushes work this way, this is the first one I have used, so i don't know if this typical of all dry brushes or not. But I will continue to use it. It does work.

                This is one of the worst purchases I've ever made from Drugstore.com. I picked this brush because it had four stars. Who ARE you people? This brush hurt so bad I thought I would have a bloody back after a few seconds. Seriously - save your money and just grab some sandpaper out of your garage. You will get the same effect. I'm not exaggerating - the bristles on this thing caused me severe physical pain.

                    I have purchased many back brushes and they all seem to be flimsy bristles. This brush is VERY firm and creates an invigorating scrub. No other brush will do but this one, and that is why I am buying another for my teens who are getting backne.
