How to take all the fun out of exfoliation with Le Edge

When it comes to exfoliation I like to think I have an open mind. I’m open to using sugar, salt, seeds, and bio-degradable beads. I’m open to cream and gel bases – dry and oily. So with this in mind when I came across Le Edge I threw caution to the wind even though I had some reservations. No thrill of hearing salts and oils scraping across the skin….no thrill of smelling yourself after using a caramel chocolate cupcake concoction…

This is what it says on the Le Edge website:

The Le Edge exfoliation tool has a patented “higher than surgical grade” stainless steel gentle edge that removes the top layer of dead skin revealing the younger vibrant living skin beneath.

Le Edge removes dulling surface debris such as toxins, oil, dirt, pollutants and dead skin cells. This process helps to restore the skin texture and by doing so, helps to reduce the size of the skin’s pores naturally.

Did you get all that? So basically to re-cap you scrape this little guy or gal across your bod or your face to get rid of dead skin and other pore clogging goo. Well I tried it and while it might get rid of soap residue and some oil I didn’t feel it did much else. I opted out of using it on my face and I think if someone had breakouts or acne this would hurt like heck. I also found this takes longer to exfoliate your entire body than just rubbing scrub all over it as you can only use this in one direction.

What I did find it useful for is getting rid of excess scrub that doesn’t come off easily with water (particularly oiler scrubs) as demonstrated below:

So if you want to use what looks like a mini ice scraper on your backside have at it, but don’t say I didn’t warn you!

I also found this other scary quote on the website – ‘With your Le Edge purchase you will never need to buy those gritty and grainy body scrubs’ – I’d rather get hit by a bus at full speed thanks!

    I think I’d prefer to use a scrub! Looks quite dangerous! :)

      It’s okay to use on your legs because that is pretty much an even surface almost like shaving but when you get to your arms and backside it gets a bit more treacherous! This is why I didn’t even attempt to try it on my face – if I slip I might end up looking like I’ve had a facial from Edwards Scissorhands or Freddy Krueger! xoxo

    Hmm this would be perfect to scrape off grime from tiles! :) No go for my skin.
