First Impressions Review of The Body Shop Soft Facial Cleansing Sponge

Hi everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you a sort of first impressions review of the soft facial cleansing sponge by The Body Shop. I got this out of my beauty TBS advent calendar. (If you want to see what else I got in the first 12 days you can read my post here)

So I have used this the past couple of days for cleaning my face in the morning / at the end of the day. I was really intrigued by this sponge as I have heard a lot about the sponges and brushes etc which you can get for taking makeup off but I was yet to try one. I usually just use a normal flannel.

When I took this out of the packet it felt super soft and spongey. However, when you wet it and use it on your face (with a cleanser of your choice) it actually feels slightly rough. Nothing too crazy, but definitely not as soft as you might have expected. I like this as I think it well help buff away any dead skin whilst you are cleansing your face. If you have sensitive skin though you might find this a little too rough for daily use.
I find that this has taken my makeup off really well and leaves my skin feeling very clean and smooth.
I think this is a great product. You could use this as an alternative to cotton pads which would be more environmentally friendly.
I went on TBS website and found that this costs £4 for one sponge which I think is very reasonable (so long as it lasts a decent amount of time). However, I do wish it wasn’t white as it will show the dirt a lot quicker.

That’s it! I would definitely recommend trying this sponge if you are planning on putting an order into TBS any time soon.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    I might have to get this next time I place a Body Shop order, I always seem to be just under the free delivery mark as well and end up buying something cheap and random to put it over, wish I’d seen this sooner 🙂

    Hello there!
    I liked this sponge at first a lot but and then it got moldy so quick so i didn’t like that. And i didn’t even leave in wet place or anything. That’s my opinion. I just wanted share 🙂

      Aw that’s such a shame! I hope mine doesn’t do that so quickly! Thanks for sharing 🙂
