I had never actually used something like this before, but when I saw it I figured I'd give it a try. Right after using it for the first time I felt like I was actually getting a deeper clean that I normally would. You don't need to use much pressure, but it really works your soap down deep so you can get a truly clean and refreshing feeling. Plus, it stimulates the blood flow beneath your skin to give you that health look that you just don't get from using anything else. I use this every time I get in the shower now.
