Cactus Body Brush
Lovely and Luxurious
I purchased this to use with the Pink Grapefruit Shower gel and was glad I did. It's got a great rough scrubbing texture and reaches everywhere on your back easily. If you hang it to dry, there is no odor issue and I loved it so much I purchased two as gifts for other family members! My husband tried it with soap and while it works, the body wash is a better option. My brush arrived with some bristles bent from the packaging but it resumed it's shape in a couple of days. Overall the brush is durable and helps create a spa-like feel in my tiny bathroom.

I highly recommend this brush! I was afraid due to reviews of a scent the brush had, but purchased it anyway on a hunch. AMAZING! I am so very happy that I bought it. Use it with your favorite body wash (like Honeymania or Moringa) and there is no odor. Or, keep it in a dry place like a rack/shelf near the shower and you won't have any issue with odor whether you use a body wash with it or not. Made from sustainable products...save the trees and my skin at the same time! Thank you Body Shop!

A slightly longer handle would be superb!
The brush is perfect in most ways. The bristles are stiff enough to be great for exfoliating and stimulating circulation, but the handle should have been 2" - 2 1/2" longer. The handle itself is really beautiful thanks to the way the wood is laminated. For anyone who has a problem with the range of motion in their shoulder(s), it may be a bit difficult to get their entire back. You can determine how "brisk" you want to make the scrubbing by how much pressure you apply when you brush.

I am so unhappy with this brush I will probably be writing to customer service for a refund. I don't know if this is suppose to be used as a dry brush only but it doesn't say so anywhere on the website and other reviewers have used it in the shower so I assumed it was ok to wet it. Now it smells disgusting! I mean this is one of the weirdest worst smells I have ever smelled. I used it once and then noticed the smell so I took it out of the shower to dry out, but it is dry now and still smells gross. Only one other person has commented on the smell of the handle--it is definitely the handle!--so I don't know if mine was defective or what, but be warned. It's a great brush, it does its job, but it smells AWFUL when wet. If I hear back from customer service I'll try to remember to update this.
