    How harsh is the sisal cloth? How does it compare to a loufa or the scrubbing gloves?

    Do you feel that more exfoliation is necessary?

    The underlying issue is do you seem to be irritating your skin? I know some folks who use a loufah everyday with no ill effects. Others once of twice a week. Does your sisal come from Yucatan?

    Based on my experience with a loufah, fine grain, no more than thirce weekly. YMMV though because of the sisal quality and your skin. I just started using some Provence Santé Verlain Men's soap with seaweed bits in it. It will exfoliate your body very nicely, especially when rubbed on directly. I have lathered and used the lather on my face. Not only no bad effects, it is rather pleasant and I notice a certain ruddy tone after use.
    Note: At one time sisal from Yucatan was purported to be the best.

    I use the scrubbing gloves on my face lightly when I am in the shower and I get very good results.

    I have been using the cloth to exfoliate my face for a while instead of scrubs...not only do I have to exfoliate less than with scrubs my face feels alot better.


    My main reason for asking was when I travel its a pita to carry a sisal cloth and regular cloth.
