    Comments about Earth Therapeutics Purifying Vegetable Facial Sponge:

    Soak the sponge and massage over face. Can be used with or without facial cleansers. I prefer not to use cleanser eith this sponge to see how my skin reacted with just to charcoal feature. No breakouts, no filmy residue left behind. Let it completely dry before storing, if not I feel it will sour easily!

      Comments about Earth Therapeutics Purifying Vegetable Facial Sponge:

      Great sponge for gentle cleansing. I have rosecea/acne and this is way more gentle than using a wash cloth to cleanse your face. Gently squeeze out when you are done, I keep mine on a little dish on the sink so it can dry out. Starts to deteriorate after 3 months.

        Comments about Earth Therapeutics Purifying Vegetable Facial Sponge:

        I just picked this up from my local Ulta. Oh my god! I cannot even begin to explain how amazing this sponge is! Its so unique! When I first opened it and held it in my hands, it felt so gushy! I gave it a quick rinse like the directions said and then applied my face wash onto the sponge. This helped my cleanser lather up so nicely! I have never in my life felt so clean after just one use of using something on my face. It feels super soft and smooth but you can feel it gently exfoliating your skin! Its such an amazing feeling. I am going back to get a few more. I love it!

                I bought this to use to clean my face with my cleanser to help get a deeper and better clean. When I using my fingers I feel as thought I'm making my skin dirtier versus more clean. This sponge is very soft when wet, rubs around the face without irritating it. Easily washes out and dries.

                  Decided to try this because I've been looking for something gentle enough to use on my face but can use in the shower as a full body sponge. I've noticed a difference in the purity of my skin all over.

                    Comments about Earth Therapeutics Purifying Vegetable Facial Sponge:

                    I love this sponge so much and I honestly thought it wouldn't be that great at first. I originally got this to clean my Lush face cleanser off my face. I was using my makeup towel, but it got dirty quickly and left the cleanser on the towel. I got this hoping it would do a better job of staying clean and its perfect! I use it in sections until the whole thing is dirty and then I rinse it clean. I also think it's helping with my acne. I love it so much though, I bought a second one to use in the shower to help remove leftover bits of eye makeup. Storing them did seem like it would be an issue, but I just squeeze it out well and then keep it in a travel soap dish. I'm not sure how long the sponge will last but since it's decently cheap and works wonderfully, I definitely won't mind buying more.
