I do love these. I was reading an article about dry brushing and thought I would consider giving it a try. It is not the first time I have heard of it. I have even tried it a couple of times over the years, although I had not made the commitment to be consistent. So, after reading a few more articles and viewing a video, I thought I would look into buying a brush specifically for that function. After a search on Amazon, I chose this brush. Actually I chose to buy a set of 2. These brushes are soft enough that they do not scratch my skin. It also feels more productive to me to have one on each hand. I would recommend these to anyone interested in dry brushing. The bristles are soft and flexible and do not leave scratches.
