This is a unique product that I recently bought from Ulta. It is an anti-cellulite sponge. My entire adult life, I have suffered from ugly cellulite dimples on the sides and back of my thighs. They look unpleasant and embarrass me a little when I wear shorts. To combat them I intensified my workout routine and tried to scrub cellulite off of my body with sponges and body scrubs. Which of the two worked the best? The former, obviously but latter does help speed up the process.
Spongeables Anti-Cellulite Body Wash in a sponge is the first luxurious body wash with built-in anti-cellulite benefits. New infusion technology blends a gentle cleansing gel, premium quality moisturizers and powerful anti-oxidants, transforming an ordinary shower into a way to refresh, restore and beautify the skin. Spongeables specially-textured massaging and exfoliating surface whisks away dry skin to smooth and tone with every use. Spongeables is made using vegan ingredients and is never tested on animals.
How to Use:
Use every day or as needed to nourish, invigorate and revitalize. Thoroughly wet sponge and squeeze to form a creamy lather. Exfoliate and massage to stimulate circulation and smooth skin. Squeeze to remove excess water and store in a dry area until next use.

My Experience with Spongeables Anti-Cellulite Body Wash in a Sponge Lavender Bloom:
This sponge is the size of my palm and in the shape of a teardrop. It is lavender in color to complement the scent of the product. It also comes in the ‘Aloe Vera’ variant. One flat end of the sponge has a specially-textured massaging and exfoliating surface. That is the essential feature of this product as it helps smoothen the skin, diminish cellulite (eventually) and prep skin for hair removal process.
I use an epilator to remove hair from my legs and arms, but to speed up the process and obtain an impressive end result, I use a good body scrub and scalding hot water to open my pores and avoid ingrown hair. I massage my skin with this sponge while under burning hot water shower (I prefer scalding hot water for my shower).
I thoroughly wet this sponge and squeeze to form a creamy lather. I do the scrubbing for a good few minutes to open my pores and wash it off with, again, burning hot water. This makes my hair softer and easier to remove. This also makes my skin smoother, prevents hair stubbles or bruises.
The soap in the sponge contains a high amount of glycerin so it leaves skin smooth and hydrated with a layer of glycerin. This is perfect for skin except for days when I scrub my hair removal. A layer of glycerin gives a slip to the skin and prevents epilator from getting a good grip on the hair.
So, when I scrub my skin on the hair removal days, after using the sponge I wash my legs with a regular body wash to remove the layer of glycerin and deliberately make my skin dry. Does it combat cellulite? It does help make skin smoother and when used along with a good workout regime, I feel it works better. I do recommend it to those who suffer from similar cellulite woes.
