If you’re looking for something that cleans your body better than a washcloth, loofah, or traditional sponge, you’ve come to the right place. Soap sponges are sponges that are infused with body wash. They can save you time and money and make your showers more efficient (and more enjoyable). You can buy soap sponges right here at Spongellé.
We like to call our soap sponges ‘body buffers.’ Our body buffers are amazing, three-in-one products! They help to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin. Our body buffers also save you time because you can cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin in one step rather than three. On top of that, they save you money because you only have to buy one product, rather than three different ones. Now when you take a shower, all you have to do is gently scrub your body with our buffers, and then you’ll be good to go.
Seriously, these products are the best. You will never want to go back to plain body wash or regular sponges and loofahs ever again. Try one for yourself, and you’ll see just how awesome body buffers really are!
Are Soap Sponges and Loofahs the Same Thing?
In case you might be asking yourself: aren’t a sponge and a loofah the same thing? The simple answer is no; they are not the same thing. They are actually quite different, and our body buffers are in another ballpark entirely.
Loofahs are made of plastic, which can irritate and scratch the skin. If you happen to be using a loofah too frequently or too aggressively, the plastic can actually cause micro-cuts and scrapes all over your skin! So, when used daily over a long period of time, a loofah can cause damage to the skin on your entire body.
Something else you might want to consider when if you use a loofah or regular sponge is that they are highly unsanitary items. Seriously, most doctors refer to them as breeding grounds for bacteria (ew!). The reason for this is bacteria thrive and grow in moist environments, especially ones that are damp and take a while to dry. If you use a loofah and leave it in your shower, this sets the environment for bacteria to grow all over the loofah or sponge because it is dark and damp for hours.
The good news is, our body buffers are different than normal sponges and loofahs. They are sanitary because they are infused with an antibacterial agent that stops bacteria from growing in the first place. This antibacterial agent will last the entire time you use your body buffer, which is around 30 to 40 washes depending on the product. So, even if you do leave it in the shower after you use it, you no longer have to worry about any bacteria growing. You can rest assured that you’ll be getting a clean and effective wash every time you use it.
Can I Use a Soap Sponge on My Hands and Feet?
Yes, you can absolutely use our soap-infused sponges on your hands and feet! However, we also offer different sponges that are made specifically for your hands and feet. Our classic body buffer can always be used on your entire body. Sometimes our hands and feet are rougher and dryer than the rest of our body. For this reason, they might need a little extra TLC, which is why we offer hand buffers and pedi buffers.
These are formulated especially for the skin on your hands and feet. For the hands, we offer Hand Defense, which is antibacterial. For the feet, we offer our Pedi Buffers. These are great options to use on specific areas of your body.
Soap Sponge for Hands
Our Hand Defense buffer is infused with antibacterial hand soap. This works to kill bacteria, as well as remove dirt, oil, and anything else that’s on your hands. Just like our body buffers, it is infused with an antibacterial agent which helps to prevent bacteria from growing in-between each use, which is really important.
When you use our buffers, you know that your hands are actually getting cleaned. You won’t be putting bacteria right back on them or just moving dirt around. Instead, the soap works to lift dirt and bacteria up, and the sponge scrubs it away. As the last step, make sure you rinse with warm water to get everything off. And while you can definitely use the hand buffer in the shower, most people tend to use it throughout the day (instead of regular hand soap) when they wash their hands.
Soap Sponge for Feet
Almost everyone has thicker skin on the bottom of their feet. This is just something that happens naturally, especially on the heel area, which is even thicker than the rest of your sole. No matter how many pedicures you get, it’s very common to have tough, dry, and even cracked skin. Given the fact that you are probably walking or are on your feet all day, it makes sense that your feet need something stronger to help exfoliate and smooth the skin. You need the Pedi Buffer, which is a highly effective polisher and exfoliator for the skin.
Similar to our body buffers, the pedi buffer is a triple-action buffer. It works to cleanse the feet, exfoliate and polish them, as well as keep them smooth by locking in moisture. This is a great way to finish your body washing routine. When using this buffer on your feet, make sure you apply enough pressure to help remove any dead skin. Finally, just rinse the soap and dead skin off, and your feet will be perfectly smooth. You’ll get pedicure results at home for a fraction of the price!
Men’s Pedi Buffer
Sometimes men have tougher and drier skin on the bottom of their feet. So don’t worry, we didn’t forget about them! Men deserve to have smooth and soft feet too. That’s why we created our men’s Pedi Buffer. It comes in three different exfoliating strengths, so you can choose the level of exfoliation depending on how dry and cracked your feet are.
We offer an Extreme buffer, a Super buffer, and a Supreme buffer. All three offer amazing exfoliation that targets dry, tough, and dead skin that forms on the bottom of your feet. Each buffer is also scented with masculine, delicious scents that range from verbena to bergamot to cedar.
What Other Products Does Spongellé Sell?
You won’t just find bath sponges at Spongellé. We also sell a variety of body lotions, creams, souffles, hand sanitizers, and candles. You can find all of the products you need for relaxing and getting clean in the bath or shower, because all of our products are meant to hydrate and cleanse the skin. Seriously, you will be so smooth after using the sponges or lotions.
No matter which bath sponge or pedi buffer you use, it’s always a good idea to follow up with a body lotion, cream, or souffle of your choice. After using your body sponge in the shower, apply lotion on your whole body from your neck to your feet, and make sure you put a little extra on your feet to really lock in the moisture. When you exfoliate your skin, it can dry out if it doesn’t get enough moisture to help form a protective barrier.
If you want to buy a soap sponge, you can find a wide variety of them at Spongellé. We make body buffers (our version of a soap sponge) for your body, feet, and hands. We also have collections specifically for men and kids. Our body buffers save you time and money because they are a three-in-one product. And who doesn’t like to save time and money?
Our body buffers are also much more sanitary than traditional sponges and loofahs, which attract and grow bacteria. They contain an antibacterial agent that stops bacteria from growing in the first place. Whether you need a mild exfoliation on your body or a heavy exfoliation on your feet, we’ve got you covered. And if you are looking to replace your regular hand soap and use a hand buffer instead, we’ve got that covered as well.
