buff puff May 17, 2008
By Katrina Canipe
I have been using this product since I was in middle school. I am 34 now. I don't feel like my face gets clean without them, and those daily disposable things don't work! To my dispair, you can only find Buff Puffs online now. No store in our area sells them, they all have imitations that fall apart in a week. I hope they don't stop making them!! Katrina

Buf Puf review May 30, 2009
By Alfa D. Kessler
This is the original Buf Puf and is so much better than the pharmacy generic knock-offs!! It retains its shape much longer and does a much better job of scrubbing my face.

Surprised more people don't know about this! Sep 21, 2010
"Lovin' those Electronics!"
The first time I used a buf-puf, I was probably 14 years old. I felt it was so much better than using a washcloth or a cleanser by itself. It always left my pores feeling scrubbed inside out! As I got older, the need and use of the buf-puf subsided as my face cleared up and constant exfoliation wasn't needed.
I went for a facial a few years ago, and was told that I should exfoliate once a week. Then one day at the store, I just had a random memory of the buf-puf, and started to frantically look for it. I really did think they discontinued it and I was definitely sad as I remembered it was amazing.
I actually found something relatively similar at Target in the beauty section, they are facial cleansing sponges and come in a bag of 12. I know people have said those other ones don't come close, but I feel out of all the generic knockoffs, this one is fairly comparable. Not as thick or large, but they are definitely good on the scrubbing.
Truly, I don't know why more people never used this product nor why 3M has decided to limit where they sell them. Once I realized this, I knew Amazon would have them cause they have everything!!

A secret to great skin! Jun 05, 2011
By T. Low
I posted this as a comment, but should have posted as a review: here goes.
If you have not exfoliated your skin much, it will be more sensitive and it takes time to build up skin strength to tolerate a rough sponge. Definitely start with the buf puf for sensitive skin. I have exfoliated for more than 20 years -- using buf puf and similar products, as well as fruit acid peels, Skyn exfoliating wipes, etc.
I am now 42. My skin is very fine textured, soft, smooth, and youthful. I am constantly mistaken for MUCH younger than I am. I was at a party last night with people of all ages and the older guests (and some close to my age) kept referring to my husband and I as the "young people". An older lady told me that I'm very well spoken for such a young lady, and talked about how we are the future with our whole lives ahead of us. This is not a one time thing: it happens to me all the time, and I've had people go speechless when I tell them my age. I've been told that I look no more than 28.
I think there are many reasons I look so young -- good diet, genetics, not smoking, and really taking care of my skin, but I think that exfoliating is the key. There have been times I've stopped exfoliating regularly and within a couple of weeks my skin is duller, and looks older and more tired. Regular hard exfoliation has made my cell turnover faster so I do get more dead skin cell build up if I stop. I wish I was not so hard to find Buf Puf in Canada! The Shoppers Drug Mart brand I have to get here are lousy. The Buf Puf bath sponge is extra rough and I just love the thing. I exfoliate head to toe (smooth skin all over, no bumps or stretch marks. Gotta love that). I have to order these from Amazon now and have them sent cross border.
Take care of your skin and give yourself a facial every week and it WILL pay off.

A loyal Buf-Puf customer Sep 10, 2010
I rarely find these in any stores these days and I think I have been using Buf-Puf's since I was 14. I am now 49 and my step-daughter has always said my skin was the softest she'd ever touched. I don't feel like my skin is totally clean unless I exfoliate.
