Once in a while I find it's necessary. Until you've experienced it regularly, it's hard to qualify the benefit.

Also, if you have acne, it can be useful.

I just use a buff pad, they are very scratchy, and soap and water (I use cetaphil, mostly because I have drier hands and wash them alot).

For most people, just a terry wash cloth and a bar of soap should do it, especially if you shave after a shower.

Exfoliation + shaving = "dermaplaning".

Don't forget all the microplastics in puts into the ecosystem. For instance, some Nivea products have what they call "MICRO TEC (Vitamin F and high tec polymers)".
