Love this sponge! Works exactly as described. Just make sure you use it with only water on your skin and on the sponge and rub rub rub! I could see the dead skin rolling off my arms and it even helped with some of my KP (keratosis pilaris). Definitely worth trying! I will say it could have used less plastic packaging, as each sponge was wrapped individually, then packed in a zipper bag, which was packaged in a shipping envelope, which was packaged in an Amazon shipping envelope. Cut down on the waste and it's perfect!
