Matrons in South African clinics used to think young women coming to get as many female condoms as possible are using them to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancies and STIs. But the girls only
need the little sponges in the confirms for applying makeup while they throw the oily bag away.
According to Sandile Mkhebe, pictured: “The sponge is a quality product. I’ve been using it for about six months. I see myself getting more beautiful. I will never give up using it. It saves me a lot of money. Before I discovered it, I used to buy compacts because I needed the sponge to apply my makeup.”
