                      This is amazing if you haves more sensitive skin. I have the clarisonic and it just drys out my skin but this exfoliates gently no removes any excess makeup I have on and it way more affordable then the clarisonic. However if you really want to exfoliate you might want to keep looking this is a very gentle exfoliant so you can use it everyday.

                            It is very gentle, almost too gentile. I don't get the amount of exfoliating I was expecting. It is just one step up from a washcloth. I will use it, but won't repurchase.

                                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 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.

                                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.

                                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!
