Plagued with unmovable cellulite as this writer is, we’re always on the lookout for something – ANYTHING – that promises to help break up those blockages and smooth things over. We’ve tried dousing ourselves in coffee granules and we’ve squatted ’til the cows came home, chewed grass, fell asleep and wandered off again, and STILL, no joy. We’re learning to live with and even love our cellulite; it’s real, it’s a common affliction and there are worse things to complain about. Nevertheless, when we received a new infused body buffer named Spongellé, we were eager to give it a whirl.
For those who like to spend their showers buffing to their heart’s content, Spongelle is a specially patented body wash infused buffer that doubles as a sponge. It works in several ways; utilising a SalSphere delivery system, it massages, smooths and exfoliates all areas of the body that are prone to cellulite.
Unlike your average sponge that meets its demise at the bottom of your shower (which I like to refer to as the empty shampoo bottle graveyard), this one actually contains stuff, meaning you don’t need to go investing in extra products with which to work. Paraben free, Spongellé contains anti-aging green tea extract, grapefruit seed extract for skin conditioning, and Indian lotus flower which improves the skin’s texture and condition while regenerating and purifying it too. And if all of that wasn’t enough, it boasts an overall fresh beach grass fragrance, which is a far cry from the odors enjoyed that time we rubbed foul-smelling algae powder from our our head to our toe. This treatment’s pleasurable.
Just one use and you’ll notice your skin feels smoother and a little more youthful. This new creation lasts for 25-30 showers and as an added bonus, it’s also recommended as an aid in between waxes to maintain smoothness and keep pesky ingrown hairs at bay. It also works a treat to prep your skin ahead of tanning, as well as being tough enough to remove residual tan when your colour inevitably starts to disintegrate like a reptile shedding its skin. Not pretty.
Best of all? This miracle worker costs €14. It’s available in salons and pharmacies nationwide.
We’re in love.
