          I was excited to try out this product. To my surprise the texture creates a great soft exfoliation to the face. I double-cleanse and this makes it easy and provides a thorough clean. Very easy and comfortable to use. I highly recommend if you're looking for a new way to cleanse your face. I use it everyday. Also really good for traveling.

          wondering if im the only one who got a reaction after using this. i had just received it in the mail with my peter thomas roth charcoal face wash. i had used the face wash before and never had a reaction. right after using this i noticed my forehead cheeks and nose were red. the next day i had a rash and alot of texture.

            I didn't think it would hold up as well as it does. No bits and pieces coming off, no chunks falling out. My face and neck are definitely cleaner after use as evidenced by a follow-up no rinse cleanser/toner.
            I have very sensitive skin and this did not cause any issues.

              This sponge is excellent for your face cleansing routine. It gently exfoliates and retains your cleanser. It helps prevent wasting product and leaves your skin soft/supple.

                  I was on the fence about buying this bc I didn't think it would be worth it...I ended up picking it up for the 5 times points haha In all honesty, though, I'm glad I did! It takes my already amazing face cleanser to a while other level. It helps it scrub out my pores, exfoliate my dry patches & get every last bit of gunk off of my skin. If you're on the fence like I was, just go and get it! Haha You won't regret it.

                      HI Becca,

                      You actually don't need to technically cleanse this sponge every day. If you're using a cleanser when prepping/washing your face, that is ok. I would recommend a deep clean every 2 weeks or so. What I do is actually have two on hand at all times. :) When one comes time to deep clean, I use the other one for two weeks, until it's time to deep clean that one. It keeps me switching off every few weeks.

                      If you use this every day, and clean in every 2 weeks, it should last you about 60-90 days.

                      Thanks!

                      Hi Krystal,

                      I deep clean my Cleansing Sponge every two weeks, which has worked well for me. I use our sister brand, EcoTools, Makeup Brush shampoo. I love the smell and the shampoo is made with less harsh ingredients than a lot of cleansers out there. You can find that shampoo here:

                      Hi Ruth,

                      Yes - this sponge can be used with a cleanser every day. Just make sure you squeeze all excess water out of it and store it in a cool, dry place where it can get air to help it air dry.

                      Hi Susy,

                      Yes - this sponge can be used every day. Keep an eye on your skin, just to be sure, but overall, if you use it gently (which most of us do), it's a great way to keep your face clean and exfoliated.

                      Hi there,

                      This sponge is going to be great for overall cleansing of the skin, but may not remove blackheads the way other products (whose sole purpose is to target blackheads) may be.

                      It may be a good idea to talk to your dermatologist about it, though! :)

                      This is like the original in that it is bouncy when it's wet. The surface is a bit more textured that the original Miracle Sponge, simply for the exfoliation benefits you get from it, but overall, I think it's a great way to really cleanse your face!

                      Thanks.

                      Hi Vic,

                      Great question! The sponge itself is textured a bit like a konjac sponge, so it does give you a nice bit of soft exfoliation during use, but the materials overall are synthetic. It does also stay a bit softer when dry than the konjac as well.

                      Thanks!
