Beauty sponges are all the rage in the cosmetic world, but University of Alberta student Ola Cislik realized there was a problem.

Since the sponges are used wet, Cislik couldn’t find a good way to store them and allow the products to air dry, especially while on the go.

She went to the drawing board to find her own solution. Within a year the GlamPod went from sketch to makeup bags across North America. The beauty product is fully manufactured in Airdrie, Alberta.
