Bare Essentials Face Sponge Review

Bare Essentials Face Sponge Review – Hello Readers, I am going to share Bare Essentials Face Sponge Review here. Before calling it a day most of us use various products to get rid of remains of makeup and pollution. To name a few would be cleansing oils, milks, washes, and lotions etc to prevent the leftover makeup from clogging up the pores. However, this step can be further upgraded if one uses tools along like cleansing brush or a makeup remove cloth or a face sponge may be. I picked one from Bare Essentials for the same purpose and here is how my Bare Essentials Face Sponge fared for me.

My experience with Bare Essentials Face Sponge

Bare Essentials Face Sponge is a pink colored oval sponge. It comes in a simple plastic pouch. The sponge feels stiff initially and its only after first few uses it can be bended as shown. It feels harsh until one holds it under running water for half a minute and then squeeze to drain out the excess water. Once wet the sponge becomes flexible and easy to use at difficult to reach areas like sides of nose etc.

When I use it to remove layers of makeup from face I start with making the sponge wet. Next I apply makeup remover lotion, massage it well and wipe it off using this wet sponge. Bare Essentials Face Sponge does remove both the remover as well as the makeup together. It acts as an alternative of washcloth which we use to wipe face. Here I would like to add that if someone does not use cleansing milk or makeup remover, even then it helps in getting rid of makeup but without proper cleansing product, this removal process might remain incomplete and harm the skin in the long run.  However I do not find it soft enough to use it around the delicate under eye area, for that nothing works better than cotton itself.

In my opinion this Bare Essentials Face Sponge is not as soft as I was expecting. Sensitive skin might find this scratchy even when it is wet. If I had to use it every day it would have definitely hurt my skin. It is better to use simple cloth or wipes for absolute removal because this does not go an extra mile in removing makeup.

Although it is essentially for face makeup removal, I was also interested to check if it helps in daily cleansing regime. Bare Essentials Face Sponge does not aid in exfoliation or give smooth skin as such. When used lightly it does nothing extra which cleansing with hands cannot do while it feels harsh if used with more pressure while using. I have to use it as I have purchased it by mistake but not recommending this one as it does not do anything commendable.

Overall, Bare Essentials Face Sponge is just an alternative to facial cloth or cotton. It does not do anything spectacular in removing makeup rather feels harsh on the skin.
