Although this is meant for facial cleansing and exfoliating, I think this would work better as a body exfoliating sponge since the skin on our body is less sensitive than the skin on our faces. I did try using it on my arms and legs and it felt like like I was getting a nice massage! What a difference! But because it's supposed to be a facial buffing sponge, I would not recommend it for the face. Overall, I recommend skipping out on this product and investing in an exfoliating cleanser instead!
