Review & Giveaway: T.Taio for Bath & Shower

A quick peek in my shower would reveal a large assortment of products. Aside from the typical shampoo, conditioner, & soap, I also have shower gels, in-shower lotion, facial scrubs & poufs. To say that I am obsessed is an understatement.

I was recently given the opportunity to try an assortment of T.TAio Bath & Shower products. I felt like a kid in a candy store! Obviously, I have not tried every sample in such a short period of time. I will, however post my opinion on the products that I have used.

T.TAio is based in Mexico and is expanding to the U.S. & Canada. When you reach their website, you can click on the shopping cart with the U.S. flag and you will be redirected to their online store. The website is not really difficult to navigate, but it could be easier.
The product description on the packages are in Spanish with English translation right below it. Except for the Soap Sponges, but you can always see the description on the website.

Scrubber

I received (3) scrubbers, two of which are basically the same except for the size. The rectangle ones are scrubbers on both sides. The  Exfoliating Round Dual Texture Scrubber, is a scrubber on one side and the other side is smooth.  I  chose the round one to try first.

The sponge lathers up really well. With the scrubber, you can exfoliate dead skin to reveal fresh, smooth and radiant skin.  It is also a great way to stimulate circulation. I have heard that supposedly this kind of action on your thighs can reduce cellulite, but I cannot comment on that. I really liked the scrubber. My skin feels not only smoother, but cleaner as well. You control the amount of exfoliation and I definitely wouldn't recommend scrubbing your skin raw.
I also used the Exfoliating Bath & Shower Back Scrubber which is great for, um, ,,,your back!

I like the scrubbers way better than shower poufs. The prices aren't much more than that of the poufs, if not less than the poufs. Remember to replace scrubbers regularly, about every 45 days or so.

Soap Sponge

I received (4) different Soap Sponge. They are all made with vegetable glycerin, which has excellent moisturizing properties. The best way to describe this product is a sponge infused with soap.  At first glance it looks like a regular bar of soap. Once you wet it and lather it up, you realize that this is no ordinary bar of soap.  I used the Oatmeal and my daughter used the Aloe Vera. We both really liked these soaps.  They have a very light natural scent, so if you like fragrance, you might want to use a scented moisturizer or spritz after your shower.  It left my skin feeling really clean, literally, squeaky clean. We both even used it on our face and  liked the gentle exfoliation while cleansing. This is great for blackheads and other impurities. As with all soaps, avoid getting it in your eyes. The Soap Sponge feels a bit different in your hand but it is easy to handle and is not slippery. I will definitely be buying more in the future. The soap sponge lasts for about 30 days, depending on frequency of use of course.
