Exfoliating gloves are a product designed for the lady/gent who doesn’t have enough time on their hands for a DIY scrub or doesn’t want to have to go through washing off a body scrub, etc. I used exfoliating gloves for my first time recently and I absolutely loved the experience. Should you buy exfoliating gloves? I will help you find out below.


I bought my exfoliating gloves from Nakumatt where they retail at Ksh 268. They weren’t in any packaging which made me a little concerned when it came to hygiene, but I made sure to wash them thoroughly before use.

How To Use Exfoliating Gloves

Exfoliating gloves are used during a shower. Put them on, lather on your favourite soap or body wash and let yourself relax as you gently rub the gloves all over your body.

You can feel the slight roughness as you massage your body and I’ll have to admit at this point I began to feel a little nervous. The gloves just felt like a rough showering pad. The effect I was feeling could be achieved with a showering gunia (I know you know what this is.)

The Effect

It was only after I’d rinsed off that I felt the impact my exfoliating gloves had made. My skin felt amazingly soft- same as what I’d expect after a sugar scrub. The gloves leave your skin feeling fresh, supple and looking young. I love love love the results and ease of use this product had. This is definitely something I’d buy again and again. And I think I just may need to.


The material that makes up the exfoliating gloves is the kind that can stretch and tear easily if you stretch it for a prolonged time, say 10 minutes. It is a bit weak and may need you to buy a pair frequently if you don’t take care of the ones you have. After use I rinsed out mine then left them to dry.

To Buy Or Not To Buy?

I say hell yeah to exfoliating gloves because I love exfoliating at least once a week and I feel this product suits my needs. This product is for anyone who loves taking care of their skin and is looking for a quick and easy way to do that every once in a while.

I think I’ll be alternating between DIY body scrubs and exfoliating gloves for the next couple of weeks. Why is exfoliation important? Exfoliation helps get rid of dead skin cells and helps your skin function better. When the largest organ in your body can function in tiptop shape you can get rid of toxins better and enjoy younger fresher looking skin.
