Nature Republic Silk Ball
I’m pretty certain that these Nature Republic Silk Balls ($5) are exactly what they sound like, which means I just rubbed worm cocoons all over my face . . . and liked it. The instructions recommend soaking them in water for several minutes before slipping your fingers into the holes and rubbing them over your face. I was surprised that they did not feel at all like silk and more like mild sandpaper. It didn’t hurt, but it definitely wasn’t soothing.
That being said, I think it did a good job on a more concentrated exfoliation. I liked being able to scrub the breakout-prone pores around my nose and chin with ease. I have a full bag of these, and I’m looking forward to using them; but unless my skin becomes silky smooth after, I’ll probably pass on repurchasing.
