I am all about body wash in the shower so I am always on the lookout for good shower poufs. I love the Skin Toning Massager from Body Benefits. The pouf is really full and soft and helps my body gel go a lot further with a lot less product. The coolest part of this is the sponge side with the little nodules to help diminish the appearance of cellulite. Just a quick massage of any cellulite prone areas and you can help reduce the dimples. I love how the massager feels on my skin and I have noticed my skin is starting to look a bit smoother. All that and under $4!

I love the pouf part of this sponge and while the massager part feels great on my skin I had a hard time keeping it from popping off. After looking around I haven’t seen many complaints of the same issue so maybe I just got a wonky one. I would get this just for the pouf alone but the massager side is really nice and I like to use it to polish my skin before applying sunless tanner.
