Pouf! I'm Clean!

Overall this is a quality purchase. The price may seem a bit high at first, but the loofah is made really well and should last you a pretty decent amount of time depending on how often you replace your loofahs. The netting is soft but still does a good job of exfoliating, and it's not a particularly big pain to rinse out.
Solidly built, Works well, Inexpensively priced

What does it do, and why are you telling me about it?

This shower pouf, or loofah, from Principessa is much like any other loofah you'd find out there. It's small overall, but don't let the small size fool you because it does just as good a job as any other loofah you'd use. It holds onto body wash well and helps it lather well and does a pretty good job of exfoliating dead skin as well.

Ok, does it have anything for packaging?

It didn't really have much in the way of packaging no. It did have a small tag held on with a ribbon that had to be cut off though.

Can you tell me a bit more about the loofah itself?

Sure thing. It's about 11" around and has a small ribbon loop that comes out of it about 4". If you had a hook in your shower, you could easily hang the loofah from that but there's not enough room to slip the loofah through and hang it from something like a small rod. The netting itself feels almost luxuriously soft to the touch, but can be a bit rough if you apply pressure. That's not a bad thing though because that's how you'll get the best results when exfoliating.

How do I clean it, and how often should I replace it?

Technically it gets cleaned every time you use it, although if you wanted to you could run it through the washing machine on cold in a lingerie bag and let it air dry in a well ventilated area. You could also probably rinse it very well in a bleach solution and let it air dry. You should replace it whenever you feel it needs replacing. Some folks replace theirs every month or two, some go as long as 6 months, and some wait until it either falls apart or starts smelling like mildew. To extend the life of your loofah, make sure to rinse it very very well after each use and let it air dry in a well ventilated area.

How well is it made?

It seems to be made pretty well overall. The netting is all in a nice tight ball and the ribbon has no fraying or anything like that. It would take a lot of use to really wear this down.

That all sounds pretty great. Anything else I should know about?

Other than the fact that you can easily leave this in your shower with no fears of anybody thinking it came from an adult toy shop and that you can use any body wash or soap you want with it, not really.

Awesome! Got a picture?

Of course! It's not necessarily the greatest, but it gives you a good idea of just what shade of pink it is and what the ribbon loop looks like.

I'm bad and don't replace my loofahs as often as I probably should. But I'm the only one using them so I don't usually find a good reason to replace them until they start falling apart, or something else happens that makes me go "eeewww, not using that again." That can be anything from it not getting rinsed out well enough and drying all scummy to traveling with it and forgetting it in a plastic bag while it's wet. For how much most loofahs cost it's not usually worth trying to save a loofah from smelling like mildew and it's a lot easier to just replace it.

Well this one was the replacement for my vibrating one since I never really did like that one all that much, and I was getting really fed up with only being able to use like, half of it. I'm glad I got this one. The price may seem a bit steep, but it's overall not that bad and something I'd pay once or twice a year if I had to.
