Review: Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffer


Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffer 

 Press Sample

I’m a firm believer in pampering yourself. Whether it’s enjoying a nice glass of wine while binge watching Netflix, or taking a candle lit bath listening to some relaxing music. We all deserve to treat ourselves. But what about when you are short on time? Can you still find a way to pamper yourself?  Absolutely, especially if you are using the Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffer, $16.

If you’re not familiar with Spongelle, it is a Los Angeles based company specializing in innovative delivery systems for the personal care and consumer products industry. Their products not only contain unique patented technologies, but also are never tested on animals.

So how can a sponge on a ribbon provide pampering qualities in 14+ washes? In many ways. For starters, the the Spongelle combines a body wash and buffer in one product. Secondly, it is infused with one-of-a-kind fragrance and creamy suds. The Spongelle is available in five scents, including, Coconut Verbena, Ginger Bergamot, Bulgarian Rose, French Lavender, and Papaya Yuzu. I was lucky enough to receive the French Lavender, which made my shower smell amazing.

The sponge also offers several other skin benefits:

  • Hypoallergenic
  • Dermatologist Tested
  • Cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates & massages
  • Time-released lather
  • Multi-function, multi-use
  • Contains extracts of Yuzu, Edelweiss & Vetiver

As I mentioned above, I really loved the scent and the creamy lather of the Spongelle. I also liked the size and shape of the sponge, as well as the soft ribbon attached to it. All three made made for easy shower usage and storage.

The only thing I found a little surprising was the texture of the sponge. It was a bit scratchier than I would have liked, especially during my first use. I realize this texture is needed for exfoliation, but my sensitive skin definitely didn’t take to it at first. The Spongelle does become less scratchy over time, and after using it over the past two weeks the texture doesn’t bother me anymore. It makes my skin feel hydrated, massaged, and cleansed.  I will be sad when my 14+ washes are done, and the sponge no longer lathers and fills my shower with its luxurious scent.

Cindy tried the Papaya Yuzu that came in one of her PopSugar boxes, see what she thought here.

Bottom line: $16.00 might seem like a lot for a sponge that only lasts fourteen or so washes, but it is well worth the price point. The Spongelle pampers your skin, smells amazing, and is infused with skin beneficial ingredients. It makes a great treat for yourself, or for anyone else who loves bath and body products, or needs a little extra pampering.

    This is very interesting! It’s never too early to take care of your skin and always a good idea to prevent skin issues by taking care now. Thanks for this recommendation!

  2. I might actually like this! Love things that exfoliate like this. I’d love to smell this deliciousness in person, haha!

  3. Allison @neversaydiebeauty says

    It’s sounds great, but like you, I’d need the sensitive skin version!

  4. This is so intriguing!

  5. Very interesting indeed. I wanna try it now.

  6. Those are so cute. I think it would be a great gift for a teen.

  7. I’ve never tried this brand, but I do like a scented shower experience! Sounds nice, and it has a definite expiration, so I won’t be tempted to keep it around and let it get moldy in my shower, haha.

  8. Hmm The scratchier texture would bother me but I’m glad it goes away! Also, wine and netflix sound goood to me!

  9. FabZilla_Kath says

    Looks like something I would enjoy!

  10. I love that it comes with an infused body wash. Papaya Yuzu sounds like my kind of fragrance.

  11. I love that the sponge is scented but the scratchy texture might make me feel itchy.

  12. I got to try the cellulite reducing one and I loved it! The sponge side of mine didn’t feel rough at all, but I let it soak a bit before I used it for the first time.

  13. Looks like a great product and I bet it smells wonderful. Wish it would last a little longer, but it seems like it does a great job!

  14. I love that this is just an all in one product that cleanses and exfoliates!

  15. Debra Hawkins says

    This sounds amazing! Just what I have been looking for!

  16. What a cute sponge to have in the shower!

  17. Ooh this is intriguing! Great review!

  18. Lisa Marie Heath says

    Great review and that is super cute!

  19. First off, enjoying Netflix with a glass of wine is one of my favorite ways to relax. $16 does seem like a lot for a product with only 14 washes, but I’m a sucker for unique products and ones that have an amazing smell so I’m definitely intrigued to try it

  20. I’ve bought sponges like this before, they work well.

  21. Laura Londergan says

    This looks like something I would use. I love the idea of exfoliating as well as cleanses.

  22. OurMiniFamily says

    I’ve seen a few of these sponges floating around some beauty blogs, and I really want to try it now!!

  23. I have been seeing this and I think it’s a great concept – but I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the scatchy feeling against my skin.

  24. I have one of these that I got in my Popsugar box. I haven’t tried it out yet but after reading your post, I’m thinking it’s time to finally give it a try!

  25. It’s nice that this sponge comes in a variety of scents, and contains extracts like Yuzu, Edelweiss and Vetiver. I don’t know how my sensitive skin would do with something with the level of exfoliation you described…

  26. Karissa Ancell says

    I haven’t seen one of these before. It seems like a great idea.
