This is a very gentle and very effective exfoliating sponge. I use this with a foaming cleanser and my face feels as though I used a strong scrub. When the sponge is dry, it's very very small but when it's in warm water it expands to twice the size (see photos) which is very nice because it speeds up the cleansing process. I use this every night after an 8 hour day of wearing makeup.
This sponge should be sterilized by doing the following: boiling water and dropping the sponge and letting it be in boiling water for 5-10 minutes. This is done because not every bacteria is washed away with water after use. I sanitize this spong twice a week.
I was pleasantly surprised at this smallish sponge and the initial rock hard state was strange for me. I've been using it about a month or so...and I really enjoy the look of my clearer and softer skin! My suggestion would be to secure a safe place for the sponge to dry out between uses. Directions call for a cool dry place to do this. I share a swampy bathroom with a small sprites and the first week it kept disappearing on me and was nearly always super damp! One of the sprites is preteen and already acne prone so I'm hoping trying this out on her will be a help. This item was purchased at a reduced price for this honest review.
I was hoping this product was as good as everyone said it was, AND IT IS!!! I was afraid it wouldn't feel as soft as I wanted, but it's amazing!! It's hard to find products that doesn't make my rosacea flare up, but this sponge is perfect!!!
