  • NETT Exfoliator

    The Drop: Nett Exfoliator

    When Stylist’s beauty director Shannon Peter declares she loves a product, we sit up and listen. “If your head-to-toe exfoliation attempts often end up with a shower or bath smeared with body scrub grains, meet your mess-free alternative,” she says of the Nett Exfoliator. “The coarse texture of the fabric is enough to chip away at dead skin cell build-up, but won’t leave you red raw afterwards. I love it.”
