Before I received these Dr. Sponge products I had never heard of this brand before. The more I read about it, the more interested I became. They make different sponges infused with different things to help wit various skin concerns. There’s lots to choose from. They sell two kinds of sponges, one for the face and one for the body.
Description from their website:
“Dr. Sponge™ is an all-natural and biodegradable facial and body cleansing sponge made from revolutionary plant fiber of Konjac, which is an exotic plant native to Eastern Asia that contains natural richness in protein, vitamin (A, E, D, B1, B2, B6, B12, and C), potassium, copper, magnesium, iron, zinc, fatty acids and folic acid. Originally designed for babies and sensitive skin, Dr. Sponge™ is extremely gentle, suitable for all skin types, and offers sustainable solutions to various skin concerns.”
The first thing I tried was the Charcoal sponge. I picked this one because charcoal is a popular ingredient for oily skin.
“You can always find a Dr. Sponge™ specifically created for your skincare requirements. Dr. Sponge™ Facial Cleansing Sponge Charcoal contains no synthetic coloring and chemical preservatives. It has been infused with activated bamboo charcoal, which is naturally rich in minerals. This sponge is full of strong absorptive ability and is extremely powerful at drawing out toxins, dirt, and pore-cloggers from excessive oil secretion. This also works perfectly for acne prone skin. Although harsh on unwanted residues from makeup and oil, this sponge is super soft on the skin and is recommended for daily usage of morning and night cleansing.“
These are simple to use. When you first pull it out of the box it is just a hard sponge. Just run it under water until it softens up. Once its nice and soft you can use it. I wanted to try the charcoal face sponge first! I wet my skin and used my African Black Soap. I used the sponge to rub my face. I was really surprised to see how soft it was! Usually sponges have that scratch feeling, not this! When it dries it turns hard again so you can pack it up for travel if needed.
The other sponge I received was a pear powder one for the body. As you can see its bigger than the face one. I really like the body one because it works like a loofah but its super soft and I feel like it creates a lot more lather with a drop of shower gel. I only need a drop of gel or this thing to absorb it in. These sponges will last a couple months with daily use.
Aren’t these neat?!
