I don’t think it’s true to say German people don’t have a sense of humour. I know at least two who do. But one thing they do take seriously is exfoliation. And I’m with them on that.
Riffi Exfoliation Mitts have been produced at the fabulously named Wellness Factory in Troisdorf, Germany, since 1862. The special riffi fabric was developed with the help of a dermatologist. And let me tell you – it is as efficient as you’d expect from a German. Use it carefully until you get used to it, and always use plenty of lovely organic moisturising shower gel with it. It really will leave your skin as soft and smooth as a baby’s.
Riffi Mitts are great for your health as well as your skin, because they stimulate your circulatory and lymphatic systems.
You can find Riffi Mitts online – I’ve never seen them in a UK shop. Be careful though, because some stores don’t allow you to choose the colour. Given some of the hideous options available, that’s worrying. You could end up with fuchsia, scarlet or, worst of all, black. I got lucky last time. I ordered three, and got white, cream and blue, my absolute favourite bathroom colours. Huzzah!
