I have combination-oily skin and have an ongoing case of blackheads around my t-zone for the longest time. I bought this after reading the reviews and wanted to start with the Extra Gentle sponge in case the Gentle and Regular were too rough for me. Turns out Extra Gentle is just right. I used this yesterday and I could see the difference immediately. It sloughed off my dead skin cells and the blackheads were significantly gone. My skin had a slight glow about it and skin felt soft to the touch. Using this made me a believer in exfoliation. And when I applied my moisturizer, it went on so smoothly and I only had to use very little to cover my entire face. This is one of the most effective beauty products I have ever used. So small, yet so powerful.

First I'd like to say that I do like this sponge. It does what it is intended to do. But it is a [$] sponge with a limited useful lifespan. I haven't actually counted the number of uses I get per sponge, but I can tell you that after about 6 uses it begins to compact down. This is the result of squeezing to rinse it out. After a dozen uses it begins to fray and of course, from day one, it collects dead skin (by design) which does not remove completely with each rinse. So at some point it is just too disgusting and unhygienic to continue using. I am urging this manufacturer to reduce the price, and I hope other reviewers will do the same. They have been raising it consistently. If they can justify this price, for reasons other than demand, I hope they will do so on this web site. Otherwise, due to economic realities, I will have to become an ex-customer.

      I really like this product. I use it with a very mild soap for sensitive skin and it has worked great so far. Gentle enough to use on my face everyday, but also exfoliates thoroughly. I recommend it for anyone with sensitive facial skin.

        My dermatologist recommended using a Buf-Puf along with Dove soap on my face every night before bed. In the past I was able to find in local stores - am unable to find anywhere locally now. So glad I can order from here!

            I've tried finding these through various stores--online & physical. Best price around for extra gentle buf pufs but they're still expensive for just being a sponge.

              Use this to rinse off face after cleansing with cream. Removes all makeup, cleanser gently and effectively.

              I would like it to hold its shape longer.

                I bought both the "gentle" and "extra gentle" and I must say, the "extra gentle" is pretty rough! For my face and body, I use it very gently or it would be too harsh on my skin. For elbows and knees, I apply a bit more pressure and that works to exfoliate the tougher skin there. So yes, I wouldn't go beyond "extra gentle". I think the "extra gentle" is exfoliating enough even for the body!

                  I bought Buf-Puf knock-offs for a while because Buf-Pufs were more expensive. Now I know they're worth the extra cost. The cheaper imitations don't last! Even the Extra Gentle Buf-Puf -- and it is gentle -- keeps its shape (doesn't flatten). Good value.
