ow!!! i was so excited to get this brush, after reading about how great dry-brushing is for "cleansing" & your lymph sytem...but...ow!!! this left scratches & welts all over me, even with the lightest touch. i read DOZENS of reviews and articles before & after ordering it; nowhere did i find anyone else complaining about its being too rough, nor any suggestions to soften it. in exasperation i soaked it in water; this softened it a bit. i am also tempted to blunt the tips of the bristles by scraping them slantwise on a cement sidewalk. you seriously could scrub a floor with this thing. after a few more soakings it has become usable but still leaves white scratches on my skin...and it HAS taken some bumps & roughness off my elbows that no amount of lotions/creams/oils or butters have been able to. it's very tingly and sometimes i actually look forward to that a little. can't do it before bed; it wakes me up too much!

Struggled to find a body brush but I love this one
My pros and cons
Posted by 5412165757248176427 on Dec 30, 2012
PRO: The bristles of the brush are not feather soft nor do they feel like steel wool. They are also not falling out of the brush . The handle does not wiggle out freely while scrubbing back. CON: The head of the brush is seeming to crack at either of the head and bottom. I blame this do to the swelling of the brush and the need to jam the handle into place since it does not come attached. I do not see this brush breaking anytime soon, at least I hope it doesn't. After using it for the past 3-4 weeks I am overall happy with this purchase. If this product lasts another 3-4 months I will surly purchase it again.

Bristles feel nice and natural. Handle is long for hard to reach places. Seems to be good quality.
best body brush by far

The Bernard Jensen Body brush is the only brush i have ever found that has strong enough bristles to be good for 'dry skin brushing' to use before you shower to rub over your body to get all of the dead skin cells off, revealing young healthy vibrant skin below. Fabulous for winter dead dry skin and helps the largest organ in our body to detoxify - the skin. You'll love it. Just check that when you get your product that it has the handle so you can do your back...my last order didn't have the handles only the brushes.

I have very sensitive skin. This product has very stiff bristles. I cannot use the brush as a bath brush because the result is too painful for me. I took the handle off and use the brush to remove lint from my clothing.
