Do you know of a comparison of exfoliation methods?

I've had this nagging suspicion that exfoliation beads were unnecessary and that the so-called mechanical exfoliation is more of a gimmick than anything else. So, I wondered whether there was some kind of published comparison of the exfoliation effects of different methods.

I found this article about how to quantify exfoliation
https://cosmetics.specialchem.com/tech-library/article/how-to-evaluate-the-exfoliating-effect-of-a-cosmetic-product

But it doesn't show a comparison of the effectiveness of the different types of procedures.

A search on Google Scholar & the Journal of the SCC didn't get me anywhere either.

Does anyone know of a study comparing the effectiveness of different exfoliation methods?
