I’ve been testing out a double cleanse facial sponge for the North Eco Store. I was sent the facial sponge for free in order to test the product and offer the North Eco Store my review of this new product they are offering. I thought I’d share this little gem of a product with you, my dear readers. The opinions expressed in this blog post are my own!
About North Eco Store
Before I start, I thought I’d share with you a little about the North Eco Store. This eco-friendly shop is based out of Norway. I absolutely love the Scandinavian aesthetic of their shop and products. The store started as a family-based business in 2019 and has sustainability as the fundamental value.
Double Cleanse Facial Sponge Product Detail:
According to the North Eco Store, the double cleanse facial sponge is enriched with charcoal. The sponge naturally detoxifies the skin removing makeup, environmental pollutants and impurities. It cleanses the skin, refining skin texture and restores natural radiance. It’s also suitable for all skin types. The sponge is 8 centimetres in diameter.
Double Cleanse Facial Sponge Material:
The facial sponge has a core made from natural cellulose. It is wrapped in a blend of charcoal-infused organic bamboo cotton. It is biodegradable and compostable.
North Eco Store doesn’t only put thought into their products. They carry their sustainability in their packaging. North Eco Store uses packaging created from recycled materials, printed with eco-friendly inks and completely compostable after use.
How to use the cleansing sponge
Using the sponge was quite simple, you simply immerse the sponge in water until it gets silky soft. You can use it with water alone, or with your favourite cleanser. I opted to use it with my regular cleanser. Simply massage your face, next and decolletage using light circular motions.
How to care for the sponge
After each use, rinse well with warm water, remove excess water and allow to dry. For deeper cleaning, you can wash it in a washing machine at 40C.
My overall thoughts
I enjoyed this facial sponge, not only because it’s sustainable, reusable, and plastic-free, but because it works! I used the sponge with my regular face wash. The combination of soft sponge and cleanser seemed to deep-clean my face, removing my makeup leaving my face feeling clean without drying it. My face does look somewhat more radiant after using it for nearly two weeks.
For about $15 CAN, you get two sponges, each round can last for about 500 facewashes. I think that’s great value for your money!
I’ll be definitely be purchasing this in the future when this one wears out… eventually. In the meantime, I’m really enjoying checking out the rest of their products!
