This natural sea sponge has proven to be a truly luxurious product in my shower routine. The gentle wash is something I always look forward to. I love that they're natural, and can last up to five years (from some internet research). They were my first choice in my venture for minimal waste. I can't express enough how happy I have been with the switch from those plastic loofahs to these simply luxurious sea sponges. Not only are they an excellent purchase, but Baudelaire was a perfect choice in where I decided to buy them. Baudelaire understands the luxury that cleanliness can be, and their beautiful packaging, complimentary goodies in my order, and unmatched quality made all the difference. I highly recommend them. It's a beautiful product and a wonderful company.
