Ditch Your Loofah for This Exfoliating Shower Towel From Japan
Getting a full-body exfoliating treatment is an experience, to say the least—one that will leave you feeling silky smooth (and in slight dismay by just how much a good scrub can slough off). But it doesn’t need to be just an occasional treat: You can easily bring a piece of the spa into your home with a simple exfoliating shower towel. The Goshi towel, made in Gunma, a prefecture of Japan touted for its textile and silk manufacturing, is no mere loofah. Woven with two types of rip-resistant exfoliating fibers—one for lathering, the other for scrubbing—it’s conveniently long enough to scrub all those hard-to-reach spots on your back, and dries quickly to avoid the bacterial buildup that’s so common to scrub brushes and the like. For just $15, it’s an affordable treat-yourself splurge to up your squeaky-clean game.
