After the last experience with a sponge, I was concerned that the same thing would happen with this one. At first sight though I had a better feeling about it then I did the last sponge at first sight. It is so much better looking then the other sponge and it even came with a handy string so that it could be hung up in the shower and not just lay somewhere. That way of course it dries a lot faster and makes me think that there would be less of a chance to have mold grow on it. Of course anything that is wet and dry constantly has the chance of mold, so always keep it in a warm place so that it will dry quickly.
I really like the simple instructions that they give as well. It really takes the guess work out of using this product.
1. Soak the sponge for several minutes in water until it is fully soft. 2. Massage gently in a circular motion on your face with or without your favorite cleanser. Should you however chose to use an additional cleanser, you can apply a fraction of your usual amount, as the sponge will generate more bubbles. 3. After use, rinse the sponge and press it gently and press it with two hands. 4. Hang the sponge on the enclosed hook in a well-ventilated space. We recommend to replace the sponge every 2-3 months. After use, the sponge can be composted! To extend the life of your pureSOL Konjac Sponge we recommend keeping it in refrigerator if you live in a hot & humid climate. The sponge can also be sterilized every couple of weeks by boiling it in water or popping it in the microwave for a couple minutes!
While the sponge is soft which is a good thing, it is also a bad thing as well because there is no way it is rough enough to exfoliate your skin. You can use this instead of using a wash cloth to wash your face and make it feel softer if that is what you like. I did enjoy using it instead of a wash cloth for a few months though. Everything has its ups and downs and this is no different. Just have to weigh out the possibilities and see what you think of the product yourself.
