As I noted in another review, I am a scrubby glove connoisseur. I use scrubby gloves every day and have multiple pairs from a few manufacturers. The SmitCo are the roughest, but another national mart brand was worse.
These do exfoliate, they have a loop, and they have survived the washing machine a few times without getting frayed or torn. Three of the colors are actually pretty.
I have scrubby gloves from multiple companies. I don't know if I am allowed to actually name them. Best to worst IMHO: -An exorbitantly expensive brand I also purchased and reviewed here on Amazon. They are a soft fabric with a VERY thick and dense even weave (you can't even see through one of the white colored "light exfoliation" gloves), they have a hanging loop, they exfoliate better than any of the other ones I have without even making my skin red, and they come out of the washing machine as good as new. -A national high-end mall chain's own brand (expensive and no hanging loop). -A national beauty chain's own brand (loose knit but has a hanging loop). -A national drug store chain's own brand (a dense and consistent weave that is a bit rough and they have no hanging loop. Eyesore colors. They cost less than these per pair.) -These SmitCo gloves (they are quite rough and have such a very loose knit I can actually see my hand through them as other reviewers noted). Because of the loose knit, using them takes more time and water as you must be careful to not apply too much pressure. But they do exfoliate, have a hanging loop, launder well, and the colors ARE pretty) -A national discount mart (Your first guess is likely correct). They look like the brand I like the most (a similar diamond weave knit), but they are garbage. On the rack, they seemed like they would be soft, but even during the first use I had a few actual scratches on my skin because they were so poorly made that the fabric was bunching weirdly. They had stretched so much after only one wash that they didn't even exfoliate the second time I tried to use them. I think they didn't even have a hanging loop. It's stunning how awful they were. I threw them out.
These aren't bad and you should buy multiple pairs of scrubby gloves (see below), but the national drug store chain's brand actually costs less per pair, is softer and exfoliates better. I prefer using those to these, and I simply let them dry using a clothes hanger with clips.
_____A NOTE ABOUT SCRUBBY GLOVES:
I've read other reviewers say that they use one color and gave other pairs away. Please don't. Please run any brand or kind of scrubby gloves through the washing machine after EVERY use. Wash all pairs in one load without any thing else (any brand can rip clothes and if you run them with towels the gloves will be covered with terry cloth fluff). They exist to scrub off dead skin. They are full of dead skin. Unless it is not possible, it is wise to launder these intimate cleansing products after EVERY use. Use the hanging loop to let them hang dry after use and to air dry after laundering. Don't put them in the dryer,
You wouldn't reuse a washcloth without laundering. Scrubby gloves are embedded with dead skin after using.
Please launder all brands of Scrubby Gloves after every use.
I've been using these gloves for about 2 months now. I have stuck to using 1 pair and putting them in the washer at least 3 times a week. The one pair I have been using is still like brand new except for a slight pull caused by a bra hook in the washing machine. Not a fault in the glove, you just have to be careful how you wash as a delicate and don't wear rings that can catch when wearing the gloves. I also only air dry. They are almost completely dry when they come out of the washing machine anyway. I am able to use them on all parts of my body including my face. You just use a gentle touch without much force on your face. My skin is normally very dry. Using these gloves I find I don't have that look of dry skin that always looks like it's ready to flake anymore and my skin feels much softer even without lotion. Another plus for anyone with allergies, you know that when you sweat those allergens are all over your skin. I've always had certain spots on my body that no matter how often I showered they still felt itchy. When I started using these gloves those spots disappeared completely. Summer comes, I'm in flip flops or barefoot in the sand all the time so when I go for a pedicure it's usually get out the heavy duty equipment to sand the feet down. These gloves don't replace the soft skin of a pedicure, but I no longer have cracked heels and rough pieces of dead skin hanging off my feet. They actually feel pretty decent right now after not having a pedicure 8 weeks. The additional unintended use I've found for these gloves is my glass shower doors. Once a week when I'm done with my I go over my full glass shower doors with the gloves on before I use the squegee on the doors. I don't scrub I just wipe them like drying with a towel in a circular motion. All water has minerals that will build up over time on your glass doors. A squegee only stops the drop marks of the water. Windex can't cut through some of these minerals and other cleaners that can may be harmful to tiles that you have. There has been no evidence of glass scratching, just clean beautiful glass where the water runs over it in a sheet before beading. Mineral deposits stop that from happening. The last reason to love them the amazing price for such quality. you can't possibly go wrong.

The gloves are a great choice for exfoliation in the shower. Yes, I love using my sugar body scrubs, but many days I want a quick scrub down- these gloves are perfect. At first, it seemed like they might be too small (I have large hands), but they really stretch, and fit fine. They are really handy for buffing off dry skin (in the shower- always use with soap & water!). I am impressed with how easily they rinse out, and how easy they are to wash- just toss them in a net bag, throw them in the washer, and air dry! Also, they are very light weight, so you do not have water-logged gloves that use up a huge amount of soap or body wash! Well done!
Unlike a hand brush which is difficult for me to hold to even with a strap around my hand, these gloves STAY Put! But What I really liked about these gloves is my ability to control the pressure. I can use a light touch for the gentle areas of my skin or a heavier touch for the less sensitive areas. The multiple gloves in one package allow me to change out for the different body parts. I can also include a pair in my gues bath - a nice touch. I think these are great - especially for a woman Of SENIOR persuasion!! thank you!
I am glad others had good experiences using these, but I simply did not. I might have just gotten a horrible batch. I hope for a total replacement at no cost to try them again and give them a fair chance. The first three pairs didn't even make it through two weeks of use and the fourth pair is already wearing out and coming apart.
PERFECT ~ MUST HAVE ~ EXCELLENT GIFT ❤️I ordered 18 of these along with bars of essential oil soap to give to the guys and girls in my family/friends!! I’ve received several thank you texts saying how wonderful their skin feels!!
❤️Compared to other exfoliating gloves I’ve used in the past these are definitely better quality!!!
❤️I love that they have the loop so I can hang these to dry!!
❤️These fit is fantastic!!
❤️I highly recommend stocking up on these and bath gel or foo-foo bath bar to give as a gift to anyone ~ men and women ~ young and old!!
❤️Perfect to use everyday or when your skin needs a wake up!!
❤️Hopefully this review will answer any questions you might have!!
The first package of gloves I received were too small for me. I notified SMITCO of my problem and they were kind enough to send me a package of larger gloves. My purpose in ordering the gloves was to assist me to better hold the wash cloth and soap in the shower because my fingers and grip strength have profoundly diminished due to a muscle wasting disease (IBM). I found I did not need the wash cloth because the gloves easily did the same task when they were infused with soap. In addition to helping me with showering, the gloves made my skin smoother and I felt more energized. The larger sized gloves were still somewhat difficult to put on but that may be due to my disabled hand strength.
I love these. They are very good for exfoliating in the shower, I use them every morning. You can put them in the washer and dryer to clean them, and it does not degrade the quality at all. Since it comes with multiple pairs, you can use a different fresh set of gloves whenever and just throw the used pair in the laundry. They also have a little loop to hang them. I hang them right on the shower head caddy. I use them on my body mostly, sparingly on my face. If you use them on your face just be sure to do it gently because you don't want to exfoliate sensitive skin areas to roughly. I also like the little bag it comes with so I can store them easily, no lost gloves.
