Faces Canada Facial Cleansing Sponge-Review

Hello Lovely ladies,

Today, I am going to review a facial cleansing sponge for you all, which is from brand “Faces”. Till now, I used to feel that my hands and a good face wash or cotton balls and cleanser is enough to clean my face. But when I used the Facial sponge, I saw the difference.

Price:

Rs.105 for 2 facial cleansing sponges

What the product claims:

This cleansing sponge is a great exfoliating tool. The sponge gently removes dry, dead skin without being harsh on the skin. One pack contains two sponges.

My experience with Faces Canada Facial Cleansing Sponge:

When I first saw the cleansing sponge, I was doubtful about its efficiency as it was very soft. But when I used it with my face wash, I was left surprised. It works efficiently to remove dead skin, makeup, dirt from face. It is not at all harsh on skin still works wonderfully and leaves skin so clean and smooth as if you have used some skin polisher. Girls who are lazy or don’t like to scrub their face daily can also use this with their face wash to get smooth skin.

To use this sponge, I first wet it, and then I pour some face wash or face cleanser on it and then gently massage it all over my face. Sometimes with creamy cleansers, it gets little difficult to work with, as the sponge soaks the cleanser before I use it on my face. In that case, I first apply the cleanser on face and then massage with this sponge on my face.

One thing which is very important while using facial sponge is the cleaning of the sponge. Wet sponge can easily become the breeding ground for bacteria. So one needs to clean then properly with soap water and then dry them completely. These sponges don’t come with any hanger, so I have to keep then on something which won’t let it dry fast. So, I inserted a thread in it, so now I can easily hang it and this way it dries quicker. Also, don’t leave them in the bathroom, it’s good to let them sun-dry too, that helps in keeping them bacteria-free. For all the girls out there who are rolling their eyes thinking this is such a time consuming job to keep the sponge clean, it hardly takes 2-3 minutes. And the result it gives to your skin makes it worth spending those 2-3 minutes. Also, it is good practice to change the sponge in 5-6 weeks. On the whole, I love the cleansing it does for my skin.

Pros of Faces Canada Facial Cleansing Sponge:

  • Exfoliates well without being harsh on skin.
  • Gentle to be used every day.
  • Removes dirt, makeup, dead skin efficiently.
  • Affordable.
  • Reusable, but replace every 5-6 weeks.

Cons of Faces Canada Facial Cleansing Sponge:

  • Washing and drying of the sponge takes some time (2-3 minute), but it is very important.

Final Verdict on Faces Canada Facial Cleansing Sponge:

It removes dead skin, dirt makeup efficiently giving me well exfoliated, clean skin. It works better than my hands or cotton balls and still very gentle on skin. It takes some time to keep it clean and dry but it is worth it. I will recommend this to everyone.

IMBB Rating:

4.5/5
