I really like these loofas! I was looking for an alternative for the high-plastic loofas and these are perfect! As the other reviews mention, once wet, they are surprisingly soft (yes, enough for the face!) but they still work as an exfoliator. Additionally, you can reuse them any number of times (so long as you let them air dry), so that's nice as well. On that note, they dry a bit funny-looking, but once you put water on them, they soften right back up. The only negative is the string as it sometimes gets tangled while scrubbing, but it's very nice to be able to hang it by, so it can be overlooked.
