If you want to focus on your health and pamper yourself in the new year, start with something you do every day: shower. That Goshi exfoliating bath towel is here to revolutionize your shower experience for just $ 15 a pop on Amazon. The towel boasts an exfoliating weave that claims to make you feel cleaner and more refreshed every time you step out of the shower.

Inspired by the idea of ​​adding a spa-like experience to my care-routing, I threw out my loofah and got my own Goshi bath towel to try — and it lived up to the hype.

That Goshi exfoliating bath towel is made in Gunma, Japan, a prefecture that has a historical history as one of the world’s hubs for the production of high quality textiles, in particular silk. Goshi has recruited some of Japan’s finest textile factories in this area to create his exfoliating wonder towel. The towel is designed with a subtle and contrasting weave and can lather, exfoliate and scrub you clean, making a regular shower more luxurious.

That Goshi towel comes in a yellow yellow package that shows its simple instructions on the back. The first thing I noticed about the towel when I took it out of the package was its texture. It’s definitely not a lavish, soft towel you want to cuddle with. The towel is thin – almost transparent – and its weave creates a texture that is hard to the touch. The towel is also larger than expected with a length of almost 4 feet, although it proved to be useful when it came to scrubbing hard-to-reach areas.

Using the towel in the shower is as easy as using any washcloth. All you have to do is moisten the towel, fold it up a little and add soap. I tried it with both liquid soap and bar soap, and the towel was nice and foamed up with both. Once the towel is soaped, just start scrubbing.

The rough structure feels almost like sandpaper, but in the absolute best possible way. I had the feeling of scrubbing all the dirt and dead skin on my body, and even though it was a little uncomfortable at first, I felt extremely clean and refreshed afterwards, which made the extra step in my shower routine totally worth it.

The packaging says to avoid using the towel on your face or other sensitive areas due to its rough structure and I will repeat that feeling. If you have particularly sensitive skin, this may not be the right towel for you. However, it is gentle enough to use every day, and after a handful of showers, I got used to the feel of the towel. Now the roughness does not bother me at all.

After use, just rinse the Goshi thoroughly and hang it so it can dry out. Knowing how rough loofahs can become, I was a little pissed off finding out that you can not throw it in the washing machine to give it a good cleaning, but you can always just wash it by hand between the showers if it needs a refresh.

These towels are designed to last at least three to six months, depending on how often you clean it and how hard you scrub, though Goshi’s website claims that they can last up to a year (you should probably replace it before then anyway). I used mine for over a month and it is still as good as new. There is no visible wear or tear, nor is there any funky odor, as is often the case with an old loofah.

I was amazed at how much better a shower can feel after using Goshi exfoliating bath towel. My skin felt cleaner, softer and more refreshed after scrubbing with the Japanese Wonder Towel, and as long as you do not have a super sensitive skin, you will love it too. For only $ 15 at Amazon, this little towel will completely change the way you look at showers.
