Yerba Prima Tampico Skin Brush

The Yerba Prima Tampico Skin Brush is a wonderful, revitalizing health and beauty aid. Removing the top layer of dead skin and stimulating the circulation of blood feeding the skin are essential for maintaining youthful, glowing and supple skin. Skin Brushing has been used throughout the world for centuries, and is making its way back into popularity. Dry skin brushing is one of the best ways to cleanse the skin without removing the protective mantle of acid and oils. It gently and effectively removes the top layer of dead skin cells with its build-up of dirt and acid, and deeply cleanses the pores.

Honest reviews


Perfect for dry brushing!

I purchased this skin brush after learning about a technique called "dry brushing" (google it). It is supposed to increase blood flow, lymph drainage and help remove dead skin cells. If nothing else, it sure feels great! After reading the reviews, I chose to purchase this brush. It was just supposed to be my brush, but after seeing how good it felt, my whole family wants to use it (including my 2 year old). The bristles are coarse, but you are no supposed to use a lot of pressure. I was always told to only use the amount of pressure it would take to move a coin across the table. You just brush 2 minutes per day before showering and brush toward the heart (don’t brush the face) using long gentle strokes. It feels great. I did see some reviews about the handle not staying on. The wood handle needs to be turned over and inserted that way, which is opposite from the way that you would expect the wood to slide in to the back of the brush. I made that same mistake when I got the brush, but turned the handle over and slid it on that way and it has never fallen off the brush since. The company should really put that on the instructions because I had initially thought that mine was useless as well. I would definately recommend this brush if you are looking for a skin brush. The price is reasonable. The handle is long enough to reach the back. The bristles are made from tampico fiber, which is the unbleached stem of the agave plant. The instructions say to clean the brush periodically with soap and water. Happy brushing!

I recommend this brush, because it makes your skin smoother & softer. It also is wonderful for circulation, and I love my daily ritual with it. It is really relaxing. If you’re someone who suffers with depression or something like that, I find this is a nice self- treat to wind down.

Nice and stiff, makes your skin feel great! The handle is just long enough and you can remove the brush for ease of use.

Too stiff. It surely must scratch the skin!

Too stiff. I can’t use this, not even when it’s wet. It feels like it’s scratching my skin, and feels terrible. I’ll save it for scrubbing walls or something.

I was looking for an inexpensive skin brush to start dry brushing. I have noticed a huge difference in my skin! It looks so much healthier and I couldn’t be happier!

Handle optional!

I’ve recently started dry brushing. I love that this has a handle to get my back, but is removable to use on the rest of me. GREAT quality natural bristles for the price!! VERY pleased.

love it

I am trying to get healthy so I discovered that body brushing is a good thing and I love this brush for that purpose.

Gets the job done!

Perfect brush for dry skin brushing. My mom had done skin brushing for many years and she does not have one bit of cellulite and she swears that its due to skin brushing. I had always heard of the benefits of skin brushing and I feel like its very important to aid our body in detoxing because lymph only moves around if we stay active but if someone is sedentary the lymph just sits there and your body can’t get rid of toxins. Its a great quality brush and once I finish the skin brushing my skin is sooo soft. I will keep incorporating it into my daily routine to receive all the benefits.

Certainly convenient!

Easy to use and care for product that gently exfoliates. Use as a ‘hand’ brush or add the handle for a quick reach for your back. Mature, sensitive skin can be a concern when looking for skin care products and this brush offers stimulation without irritation. A great choice for me!

Augusta Willard, MT

Good for the price

Dry brushing your skin is not new; if you haven’t tried it, then you should. Particularly if you have dry skin, this brush is perfect before a shower, just rub lightly all over. Put lots of conditioner on afterward.This particular brush is quite good and the price is perfect. It’s a bit rough but just don’t rub too hard!

long reach

This brush has a great handle and is good for reaching those hard to get places. I bought one for the bathroom and one I have for washing my car as the brush is firm but not too firm when cleaning my car.

Well-made and just as described. Bristles are not too stiff or too soft — just right!

This item was very well-described so I decided to try it. The description turned out to be spot-on. It’s well crafted out of quality materials and the bristles are neither too stiff or too soft – they’re just right!

Nell Hillside, NJ

Stiff bristles but feels nice

Comfortable handle and stiff bristles. Feels nice if you don’t press hard. I’ve always had an itchy back so I decided to purchase this thinking it will help. Have yet to use it enough to really say if it makes a difference but I feel like it can if I start dry brushing several times a week. It definitely feels better than I thought it would. Best to do before showering. Would recommend this.

Body Brushing

Good solid product for my husband. Since he has yet to use it a follow up review with come after this. Thus far very happy with the delivery service and quality of the brush.

Heidi South Orange, NJ

Excellent Dry Skin Brush

Does exactly what it is supposed to do. Good stiff bristles and the handle can be removed if you just want to use the brush by itself. Since I found out about dry brushing, my skin feels like a baby’s. Try the AmLactin 12% lotion (also on Amazon) with this and you’ll never go back to anything else!
