Reader review: Kai Body Buffer, Ojon The Ball, Ped Egg

Kai Body Buffer ($36)

Kai has really come up with a fun product.  It is a nice-sized sponge infused with their fabulous fragrance, soap, olive and palm Oil.

Each sponge can be reused up to 30 times before it completely runs out of the scent, moisturizing benefits and wonderful smell. It does a great job exfoliating and leaves my skin so nice and soft.

The box comes with 2 sponges and is a delightful treat. This one might not fit in my makeup bag, but I will certainly enjoy it at home.  It also makes a wonderful gift for almost any occasion. While you're at it, they made wonderfully scented candles as well!

Ojon Tawaka "The Ball"

This is a Grapefruit Sized brown ball that comes with it's own bowl to rest in.  Ojon uses oils found in the Rainforest Flora to make "The Ball".

At first, I wasn't quite sure what to do with it or how to do it.  It hold's it's shape quite well and the heat of my hands softens "The Ball".  I get a good grip and rub "The Ball" on my terribly dry feet and legs.  It leaves a sheet of Ojon oil on the skin, which look like brown smears down my legs..........which can further be massaged into the skin finally giving a pleasant smell and soft skin.

If I didn't have really dry skin, I probably wouldn't find much use for it. The novelty of this thing holds much of it's appeal. "The Ball" is a bit perplexing, makes for a good conversation piece left on a coffee table and ultimately leaves skin soft, but the process is tedious and the end result isn't really worth the $50+ price tag.  It certainly lasts for a very, very long time.

I have used other Ojon products with the same "ancient tribal" ingredients and like the result, especially the leave in hair treatment.  But for now, "The Ball" just sits on the coffee table and doesn't get used too much.  I am still waiting to find it's purpose in life.....

The Ped-Egg

I think we've all seen the late night TV commercials for this gizmo. It now has migrated to eBay.... I paid a whole .02 cents for mine! I splurged and bought 2!

Now I must stop teasing the Peg-egg because the little bugger works like a charm!  It really is useful if you have rough, dry skin.  I use it on my feet like a cheese grater.  It catches the skin it shaves off in a holding unit, which can easily be popped off and cleaned.

It works fairly fast, be careful not to grate too hard.  It comes with an extra blade and a stick on piece of skin smoothing finisher. I like the Ped-egg and one can't beat the price!

    <p>Hi Marta,</p>

    <p>I can't find the Ped Egg on Ebay for just two cents. How did you get yours for so cheap? Was it a typo?</p>

    <p>Thanks, <br />
