Its made from silicone, and has these little bumps on it that massage your face. Its very soft so its not harsh on your skin. I have been using it to rub my cleanser into my face. I love the feeling it gives, like I'm really giving my skin a good clean. I tend to get lazy and just use wipes to remove my make-up even though I know they don't get it all off, but since I bought this I have enjoyed cleansing. I used to use muslin cloths to gently exfoliate & cleanse my skin but they get dirty quickly and I don't always have time to wash them. With this I get a similar feeling but it is also easy to clean and dries really quick too! I ♥ it! So if you can get your hands on one of these give it a try!
