Spongellé… You may, or may not have heard of this company. Anyone who is a member of FabFitFun definitely has heard of them. Spongellé is the company responsible for the widely popular body wash infused body buffers that you are seeing throughout the beauty world. These buffers come in all different shapes, sizes, colors and fragrances. People go bonkers over them! I have avoided them up until recently when I finally caved and decided to try one out. I ended up trying the “Spongellé Body Wash Infused Shimmer Buffer/Brilliant Tuberose “Cleanse Buff Glow”Brilliant Tuberose Shimmer Buffer“.
Check it out!

Ok……let me start by saying I absolutely am in LOVE with the smell of this product. Honestly if my lotions, candles and body washes all smelled this good, I would be a happy person each and every day. So fragrance wise Spongellé NAILED IT! Unfortunately, that cannot be said for the rest of this buffer. When I first opened the package the sponge was a shimmery, golden, metallic color. I had visible glitter on my fingers after I touched it. Well, to my disappointment, the shimmer was 100% gone after the second wash. Like completely non existent…BOOOOO! The buffer is infused with body wash that Spongellé claims lasts for 14+ washes. (Long ass sigh…..) I’m sorry, but I have to go in hard on this one. Cough. Cough. BULLSHIT! Not a chance!!!! I followed the product instructions exactly and this product only got to about 7 washes before I had to add my own body wash to the buffer, so that I could wash properly. Perhaps it lasts someone 14+ washes if they wash only a single arm or a finger each time , but if I am washing my BODY, there no way in this lifetime that you are going to get 14+ washes out of this thing. In terms of exfoliation, the product worked fairly well in the beginning, but after a few washes the buffer starts to become super soft, so by wash 7 or 8, you really are no longer able to actually exfoliate. Overall, this product (in my opinion) was an epic FAIL! I really wanted to like this. I honestly did. The packaging is cute, the product smells AMAZING! I can’t knock that. But the functionality is lacking and for $20 it seems like a total rip off. For $20, I would rather just get a big ass bottle of my favorite body wash and a legit body buffer proven to last and do the job.
So save your money, buy something actually worth $20 cause we are stamping this with a big ‘ol FAIL!
