Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Towel Review


In the beauty world there is a legendary product that everyone keeps going nuts for: The Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Towel. What makes this towel/washcloth so amazing? How does it work? What does it actually do?

The Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Towel is a product made to exfoliate the skin. Why it works so well is the weave of the towel and the fiber content. It’s made out of 60 %Nylon and 40%  Polyester. This blend and weave makes the towel markedly softer than your standard exfoliating shower gloves or loofah. It’s other major strength is it’s huge size. It’s 11 x 35 inches. The length of the towel allows you to use it on your back, neck, and across your hips and bum with ease.


The other hidden advantage of the towel is it’s ability to stimulate the skin quickly. If you use it in a buffing motion by holding the towel taught you will feel the surge of blood coming to the area. It will increase circulation to whatever area is being buffed. It’s less intense if you fold it or scrunch it like a poof. When you increase the circulation to an area of the body you’re able to combat cellulite and water/lymph retention. I used this on a swollen ankle and it did decrease the amount of swelling in the area plus my ankle was baby soft! The towel is also big enough for you to wrap around your thigh to really get trouble spots on the backs of the upper leg and the interior thigh where it meets up with pubic bone.

I’ve only used the towel a few times now but I can tell you that many little skin problems I was having on my body were greatly improved. Clogged pores on the backs of my arm had been bugging me for a few weeks after trying a cheap moisturizer. This took care of all of the clogs in one use. The skin on the backs of my arms also feel firmer. I’ve used no lotion either! The Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Towel paired with my trusty Weleda Sea Buckthorn Body Wash leaves me so smooth and soft I really don’t need lotion. I also had an ingrown hair on my shin which was cured in one use. The towel is gentle enough to be used on the bikini line and face if you use next to no pressure. It didn’t leave my face bright red and it did a great job of removing dead skin. If you have super sensitive facial skin you may want to skip this entirely.

Caring for the towel is easy. It dries fully in about 30 minutes so the towel is not going to get disgusting as long as it’s hung to dry after rinsing it out. Every other shower or so you can throw it in the washing machine. I’d recommend putting it in a lingerie bag or pillow case to protect it from the agitator. If you have a a front loading HE washer, you can probably skip that precaution. Once it’s washed, just hang to dry.

You should see your skin greatly improved after two to four uses in the exfoliation department but even after one use you will feel a difference. As for how effective it will be for cellulite only time will tell. I have the slightest amount on my upper thighs and bum. It’s barely even noticeable so I might not be the best person to test those capabilities. I can say it’s worth a shot for anyone who suffers from it though due to the greatly increased circulation. I’d say it increased circulation about as well as dry body brushing. I’m not sure it’s as effective at fluid drainage as body brushing however.

The Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Towel is legendary for a reason! I can’t believe that this $5 contraption works so well. My only regret is that I should have bought one 5 years ago when I first read about it. I could have saved a lot of money on scrubbing gloves, shower scrubs, and decreased my lotion and body wash costs by about 50%!

In conclusion, you need the Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Towel in your life. It’s a money saving skin health tool that you can’t be without. I can’t imagine this towel not working for you. At only $5 you owe it to yourself to try it. Salux is also offering free shipping through Amazon right now! You may be able to get it slightly cheaper at a local Asian market but beware of fakes! If this is the first you are hearing of this product, don’t dilly dally like I did and buy one ASAP!

      You probably can, just watch out. I’ve heard several people were getting products stuffed into the packaging of the real thing that were not up to snuff.

    This is interesting! At only $5, there’s nothing to lose so I’ll keep an eye out for it. Does it feel scratchy or irritating if you “buff” it on the skin too long? I, too, have those pesky white bumps on the back of my arms (thanks to Keratosis Pilaris) that I wanna get rid of! >.<

    This is so cool! I’ve been wanting to get into dry brushing recently but my skin is very sensitive. This seems like a gentler alternative. I’ll definitely have to get my hands on it!

      I’d say this is a good alternative to dry brushing. You can also use it to desensitize yourself to the stimulation!

    This is one of the best and most complete reviews I have ever read on the Salux cloth, and I’ve read a lot of them. A perfect description of a great product.

    Well, I don’t know if this is the exact product your Aunt L. has used for a long time and that I am now using. Mine was a little harsh at first but softened down after some use…as you know I have sensitive skin. I need to get some of the body wash you use. I could use to cut down on the amount of moisturizer!

    The Salux is definitely better than normal bath poufs! I’ve also tested the non Salux brand towels, and they just aren’t the same. I just got a Baiden Mitt from Amazon, and have used it once. It’s even more intense of a detox/scrub than the salux. 😉
