Scrub the day away - SURDOCA body shower brush #review

* PR review - #gifted


There's nothing like a good shower to wake you up in the morning or a soak in the bath to end the day, is there? 


Waking yourself up or winding yourself down, bathing is all a bit of a ritual and it never fails to make me feel better. When I'm not in a rush to get ready, I like to make the most out of my time in the bathroom and think that at least once a week, we need to have a pamper and not just a quick soap and rinse.




Something I have added to my routine a couple of times a week is my new SURDOCA back shower brush (#gifted). I've been aware of the benefits of body brushing but have to say that lockdown life has got me into just a simple body care regime, and I've been needing and wanting to make more time for myself.


This back shower brush can be used for both wet and dry brushing, during a shower or before or after a relaxing bath. The brush heads simply slide onto the wooden handle, which means you can use them solo if you wish.


If you use it for dry body brushing, it is as a physical exfoliating scrubber for lymphatic drainage, and if you take it in the shower with you, the natural bristles become softer and are effective at scrubbing your body gently.




And the great thing is, you can reach all those tricky places! Your back, your lower legs... it just helps make the whole process a lot easier.


So, what benefits can this body brush provide?

  • It's an effective skin exfoliator
  • It can help to prevent ingrown hairs
  • It can boost your immune system 
  • It can help to boost your circulation 




The SURDOCA brush comes with two interchangable brush heads that slide onto the natural wooden handle - boar bristles for a more vigorous scrub and soft PP bristles for a more gentle experience. It's available to buy from Amazon for £10.99 and comes in both natural wood and black finishes depending on your aesthetic preference.


If you'd like to give body brushing a go, here's a guide:

  1. Start at your feet and move up your body.
  2. Brush your skin using wide, circular, clockwise motions.
  3. Use light pressure in on thin skin and harder pressure on thicker skin.
  4. Brush your arms after brushed your feet, legs, and mid-section.
  5. Take a cool shower to help remove the dry skin.
  6. Dry off and then consider adding natural plant oil to moisturize your skin.


I've really enjoyed using this brush, and my husband likes it too, and it's added to my self care routines.
