Sometimes others may be too harsh with anything they use on their face. I like the little soft scubbers you can buy to exfolate when needed or the dove thing i don't remember the name of it but it's so cool and gental on your face and you can change the pads each time makes your face feel so fresh afterwards. I think anything works aslong as you dont scrub too hard.

I think part of it is that some people tend to use a washcloth too many times and then bacteria can grow on it that can get back on your face. I think if you use it once or twice, though, you are safe. That's what I use as well and it seems to work fine. I am about to be 40 and no one will believe me!!
I have always found that weird too. I honestly think that cosmetic companies came up with that recommendation so that people would buy exfoliants instead of going with an inexpensive option like a washcloth. For some people using a washcloth would be too irritating, but those people probably shouldn't use facial scrubs either. And a washcloth could be a problem if you don't use a clean one each time- mold, mildew, germs, etc would develop between uses. I recently started using a washcloth on my face in the mornings to get rid of the flakes that come from using benzoyl peroxide at night, and my skin looks much better.

After reading a post in another thread it reminded me of a question I've been meaning to ask.
I've read and had salon people tell me a washcloth ist o harsh for cleaning your face. Except facial scrubs can be used? Apricot facial scrub is one well know scrub for your face that everyone raves about. I have ahava facial scub which is very fine grained that I use on face and neck.
So why is using a washcloth harsh when using a facial scrub that has chemicals and fragrance ok to use?
