I found something new from the brand Audrey’s. I have a habit of browsing through stuff which at times lead me to new discoveries. This was not completely new but many of you might have not heard about this one. These are little sponges for travelling purpose. You don’t have to carry a face wash along with you. Just wet this up and wash your face. I have had the same kind of stuff from Neutrogena which is 50 times better than this and a very important part of my skin care routine. However this was picked just to try. Let’s move on to the detailed review.
Price: Rs 150 for 20 sponges
Claims of Audrey’s face sponge with active cleanser:
These disposable facial sponges contain skin friendly, non reactive natural cleansing agents to enable effective, gentle and hygienic makeup removal and skin cleansing leaving your skin soft and smooth. Audrey’s Disposable Facial Sponges are convenient for daily face care. Their small size makes them easy to carry and is extremely handy.
How to use: Simply wet sponge with a little water and gently clean your face and neck in slow circular movements. No added cleansers are required. Dispose after use.
My take on Audrey’s Face Sponge with Active Cleanser:
I got this small sponge pack a long time ago when I had to travel. Audrey’s have made this product as an alternative to face wash but I don’t think it is that effective. But at times when going out these are great to carry along. They come in a small paper box which ripped apart while I was trying to open it. The box is very dull looking and looks cheap. A plastic box would have been better. The size however is travel friendly. There are 20 sponges in all and in comparison to the price, quality as well as quantity this product ranks really low.
The sponge comes in a square shape and pure white in colour. It has a little scrubby material on it which will help to exfoliate the skin. I just took one and wet it in the water and started to massage and clean my face. There was no fragrance at all. It got really lumpy in water so massaging with it was not easy as it folded easily. It did not lather much but it cleansed my face properly. It will help to remove dirt and impurity and clean the face but will not be effective for heavy make-up. My skin felt very soft and smooth afterwards. So these sponges are perfectly suitable for all skin types. The biggest advantage is that some face washes leak at times, but these will not. Overall, these are pretty good for travel purposes but I have my Neutrogena wave which has a power cleanser with these kind of sponges and they do a much better job than these, so if you want to pick something like this, go for Neutrogena.
Pros of Audrey’s Face Sponge with Active Cleanser:
-No need to carry a face wash
-No worry of leakages
-The whole box or some separate sponges can be carried
-Easy to use
-Cleansed my face well and made it very smooth and soft
-Suitable for all skin types
Cons of Audrey’s Face Sponge with Active Cleanser:
-No value for money
-The sponge gets fully soaked up in water so folds a lot while washing the face
-Very sad and dull packaging that to made of paper which tears off easily and may destroy the inner sponges if exposed to water
Will I repurchase/recommend Audrey’s Face Sponge with Active Cleanser?
No I will not as I am happy with my Neutrogena wave and this was not worth spending and I will not recommend it as this is just an alternative and not a need.
