    used a warm facial towel to clean off gentle cream exfoliant yesterday.
    no fuss at all & feels comfortable too.

    As for me, sponges may breed bacteria easily if proper cleaning and storing is not done. therefore , i use face towel ( any towel that is used only on face and not other parts of your body). Wet the towel and scrub gently.

    to the extent of microwaving them? this is new to me. sound like the kind facial salon will do to their sponge.

    yah when i use my sponge, i always try to 'tap tap' (gentle strength) only. as my skin is rather sensitive..

    saw the FANCL facial sponge/puff you gals are talking about. but i was in a rush & SA was busy, so it was just quick glance.
    it look like the kind which we will use for body scrub, just the size is smaller.
    it was wrapped so i didn't get to feel it. but can see that the texture for exfoliating purpose..

    hi gem

    you would think so, yah. but pretty good, my sponges (that i use to wash my face with) have been surviving the washing machine. shape is fine. i guess the lingerie bag protects it somewhat.

    but i guess it really depends on what kind of sponge you have. maybe the fragile sponges would get ruined? maybe you can test it on a sponge that you were going to throw away to see how it handles in the wash?

    my sponges are lasting. and best of all they are cleaner than i could ever clean them myself!

    but any hearsay that using sponge is no-no for acne-prone/sensitive skin?
    probably try not to use it too often as some sponges may be way too rough for daily usage, esp for sensitive/acne skin i think.

    i also use one sponge for mornings and another sponge at night. that way the sponges have time to thoroughly dry.

    it's best not to scrub your face hard when using the sponge, but rub gently. i think that sponges are terrific at removing mask and cleanser residue and getting rid of that flaky/peeling skin (when you have breakouts and use too much products that dry out the skin).

    The Fancl sponge is actually for exfloilating purpose. So when you use it, don't use any pressure at all. Use it 2,3 times a week.

    I bought a trial set of FANCL Washing Powder yesterday and it comes with its sponge.

    Use it last night and today. It is not exactly as soft as velvet but it is not coarse either. I find it clean pretty well. It comes with a small loop for you to hang it dry after you use it.
