              I have combination skin and often find that exfoliating gloves are just way too harsh on my face but perfect for my body.

              The Miracle Cleansing Sponge is just lovely, it doesn't hurt to use and my skin feels cleaner after using it. My face always looks brighter too.

              I just love it!

It works great with cleanser and makes my skin feel so soft after using it. My face feels the cleanest when I use this sponge after removing my makeup! It doesn't make your skin feel dry either just very clean (: I love it!! I can't wait to stock up

                                              Hi Lauren,

                                              Yes - you use facial wash either on the sponge or on your skin and work it into your skin, using slow, circular motions. You can use the smaller end to work those crevices around your nose, under your eyes and even near your ears (if you take your makeup out to your ears to blend like I do).

                                              This does a great job cleansing and exfoliating at the same time. When you're done with the facial wash, you can either rinse by splashing your face with water, or wet/squeeze out the sponge and remove the wash that way.

                                              Thanks!

                                              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!

                                              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:

                                              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! :)

                                              Thanks!

                                              The sponge is very soft so should be good for sensitive skin, but it may be a good idea to talk to your dermatologist about it! :)

                                              This is made from polyurethane foam and is latex free.

                                              Thanks!!

                                            Is this sponge rough or is it like the original complexion sponge that is bouncy and soft when wet?

                                              Hi there, Mariz,

                                              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!
