Balmessence – UAE’s first platform to offer a one-stop-shop for high-end clean, ethical beauty products and select fragrances – introduces Spongellé – an all in one sponge (or buffer) that cleanses, exfoliates, massages and nourishes the skin. Infused with luxurious body wash, the sponge is a sustainable alternative to the ubiquitous bottle of body wash.
“Spongellé is more than just a body buffer, it is a body treatment infused with skincare ingredients,” says Michael Popovsky, Founder and Innovator of the Spongellé technology.
Inspired by the brand’s innovative technology and eco-friendly qualities, Angela Turovskaya, the founder of Balmessence, hand-picked Spongellé to be part of the “clean beauty” range of products offered by her brand.
The Spongellé formula – using a blend of high-quality moisturizers, botanicals, sea minerals, anti-oxidant and anti-ageing ingredients – provides the same benefits as those of traditionally packaged skincare. Made in the USA, Spongellé formulas are dermatologist tested, non-toxic, cruelty-free and also vegan friendly.
The Spongellé Buffers are multi-function and multi-use, with products ranging from 5+ to 30+ washes. These buffers, infused with the Spongellé formulas, change instantly under water when squeezed – from a “sensual exfoliating massage” texture to “as soft as silk.” The patented technology provides a guaranteed number of washes.
The product comes in a variety of collections such as floral or fruity fragrances, shimmer buffers, holiday collections, travel-sized spongettes, a men’s range and also a children’s collection. The men’s range includes fragrances such as Verbena, Bergamot and Cedar.
Other products include a pedi buffer, formulated just for the feet. This buffer has a unique textured side that gently whisks away dry skin while cleansing to keep the feet soft and silky. It is enriched with extracts of peppermint and sea kelp to cleanse, buff and polish tired feet.
Balmessence launched Spongellé in the UAE this November and is available online at balmessence.com, and at the brand’s boutique at Mall of Emirates.
