serious answer?
go to the supermarket and try the $6 - 12 products with beads in it ... that may work a bit better.

failing that maybe head to a beauty salon.

TradeMe forums are that way >>>>

Question

I honestly have no idea why trademe even exists. Its basically ebay with more restrictions. If every NZer started using ebay instead, that would achieve the same result. And looking at some of the items there i can clearly see that a good portion are things purchased off ebay and then listed on trademe at anywhere from 2x-4x the ebay price.

Pumice : Some kind of...volcanic rock mud? Do you have a specific product in mind?

Nomad : I do kinda have one with "exfoliating mini beads". I was thinking of trying out a specific exfoliator though, since it doesnt seem to be doing much for my skin.

What is solvol?

A pumice stone is good to remove hardened skin, calluses, corns, or stains (nicotine) from fingers but more cultured are loofas:

Solvol is an abrasive soap.

It has tiny hard particles embedded in it.
It had its heyday in the decades before swarfega, as the stuff was used to scrub off a layer of skin as a means to remove automotive grease from the skin.

I hated the stuff as a kid, and I doubt you'd want it on your face. My reply was somewhat sarcastic, along the lines of the replies listing sandpaper and a water blaster.
However, perhaps adult skin would find the stuff more tolerable. It would certainly do the job of exfoliating, although it comes from an era before that word was in the public vocabulary.

Spotted some in the supermarket recently, so it still exists.

Any guy who 'exfoliates' with solvol may still be worthy of his masculinity, coz he's gotta be a hard bast@rd.

Scroll down to the video. To skip the intro (a parody on a gospel meeting), move the tab to 3:25.

The loofah sponge sounds interesting. I assume its freely available in supermarkets and the warehouse?
