Sabon’s unique loofah soap is a glycerine-based soap poured into natural loofah (sea sponge) - it lathers up as you eliminate any rough spots on your body and comes in a lemon scent.
Since it is a soap encased in a natural loofah, it is recommended for use only in specific rough places that need a thorough exfoliation like elbows, knees and feet, or a full body exfoliation. It is said to improve the elasticity and firmness of the skin.
It has a lemony - gycerine scent and it lathers very quickly. The loofah is quite rough on the skin - use it sparingly and only where needed - in very tough, rough places like the soles of the feet (if your skin is sensitive I do not recommend it, it can damage the skin or the blood vessels). I would not use it for the body exfoliation - even if you don't have sensitive skin, it is too powerful.
After using it onto my feet, my skin was very well exfoliated, smooth and soft. Even if it contained glycerin I felt the need to hydrate the skin. I used a cream after and it was absorbed quicker and deeper into the skin.
After almost finishing it I didn't see a noticeable effect on the elasticity or the firmness of the skin, so I cannot say if it works or not.

All in all, the Sabon Loofah Soap with lemon is a very good exfoliant for the feet and elbows; it is too powerful for other areas of the body. It leaves the skin soft and smooth and lemony scented. I give it the B grade and I recommend it to you if you are searching for a powerful exfoliant. Until next time ,
