Showering is one of those practices that bridges the gap between everyday necessity — basic hygiene — and self-care, but not everyone gets to reap the benefits of the latter.
Spongellé is a brand that aims to bring that attainable luxury back to this routine practice thanks to its specialty body wash-infused sponges.
Shop: Spongellé Body Wash Infused Buffer, $16
Described as a “beyond cleansing treatment,” these soap-infused buffers are said to be scientifically proven to be “more effective at removing germs than soap alone.”
Citing the CDC, the independent brand explains that it is recommended that scrubbing your hands with soap for 20 seconds is more effective than simply rubbing them together.
With this in mind, the Los Angeles-based company created this product which specializes in an innovative and patented delivery system “designed for frequent cleansing.” Each sponge is enriched with glycerin to moisturize and hydrate and contains natural antioxidant extracts such as yuzu, vetiver and edelweiss to soothe and protect the skin.
To activate the ingredients, simply run the buffer under water and squeeze. Each Spongellé product provides more than 14 full washes.
The assortment of scents is broad, with some of the brand’s best-sellers including French lavender, coconut verbena, beach grass, freesia pear, Bulgarian rose, honey blossom and more.
In addition to the previously mentioned customer-favorite black orchid scent, we’ve listed five of our favorites below, all retailing for $14.
Shoppers can’t stop raving about these sponges. From their refreshing scents to the rich lathers they provide, they’re clearly a hit among customers.
“The rich lather smells so wonderfully good you don’t wanna get out of the shower!!” one five-star reviewer wrote, with another adding, “I just tried it for the first time and my skin is so soft and it smells amazing.”
While some shared that the fragrance can be overpowering when the sponge is immediately removed from the packaging, one reviewer pointed out that it “will be pleasingly diluted during your bath.”
In addition to its standard body wash-infused sponges, Spongellé also offers tons of specialty products including adorable trio packages, men’s buffers and even mini versions aptly called Spongettés that are perfect for traveling.
