This cleansing sponge from Missha is your best alternative to face towels. Face towels are rough, but this sponge is super soft, super absorbent and it magnets excess face oils instantly like a pro! It also exfoliates mildy when used with your cleanser to wash the face.
To use: Soak the sponge with water until soft, then use to wash your face. You can apply cleanser on the sponge or directly on the skin. OR just use it to catch excess water after cleansing the face like a normal towel to dry your skin. Keep it clean and air dry every after use.
Once you tried a cleansing sponge, I bet you will never go back to your face towel! This sponge is actually use in tandem with your oil cleanser or foam cleanser. YouTubers use it to wipe off makeup after applying oil cleansers OR to lather cleansers on the face to create rich foam and to exfoliate at the same time. Personally, I have a different purpose for this sponge and that is to catch excess water on the face right after washing. It is very convenient to sponge around the neck because it is super absorbent and you'll notice how it quickly attracts oils from your skin.
The sponge looks fragile, but it is very sturdy. Once dried completely it turns hard. Unlike Konjac sponges, this sponge quickly becomes soft once in contact with water. The size remains the same whether it is wet or dry. I prefer this sponge than konjac because of the size, the super soft texture, absorption capacity and the ability to magnet oil! It is also very easy to wash. I wash it with a bar soap (detergent or ordinary) every after use and air dry it. Another plus for this sponge is that, it is travel friendly!
