Featured Tip

The perfect year-round tan
Bet you didn't know that a Buf-Puf™ Facial Sponge could help you get a great tan! Some believe that in order to get tan you have to get burned. Not true. Sun causes early aging, and even worse, skin cancer. Sunless tanning products are a great way to a golden tan year-round. Gentle exfoliation with a Buf-Puf sponge before applying sunless tanner leaves skin smooth and soft, the perfect preparation for getting an even, more natural looking tan.

They also work great for your locker, gym bag, at the club, or at the cabin. Just grab what you need from the box – the compact size is easy to store – and you'll be good to go.

A closer, cleaner shave
Buf-Puf™ Sponges aren't just for women. Ever wonder what causes those nasty razor bumps after men shave? The condition is called pseudofolliculitis barbae, a common condition of the beard area resulting when highly curved hairs grow back into the skin causing an “acne-like” breakout. Using a Buf-Puf sponge for cleansing before shaving will help raise the hairs from under the skin giving men a clean, close shave without razor burn. This technique will also assist in preventing them from growing back into the skin again. This should be done twice a day. Using an electric shaver will also help the condition because it does not cut as close as blades do.
