I regularly use a Clarisonic to wash my face and love it; my skin looks great! It does present one particular problem for me though – I am messy. I don’t like using the Clarisonic when I’m not taking a shower and washing my hair. I just end up with water everywhere and soap in my hair.
I’ve been on the lookout for a gentle exfoliating product to use the other times I was my face. I have plenty of scrubs and exfoliating wash products, but I was really looking for something gentler. Something that I felt okay using everyday.
Enter the EcoTools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge [that lava rock looking thing on the right]. I bought this after hearing great reviews from people who got it for free in an Influenster box.
From the EcoTools website: The new unique Pure Complexion Facial Sponge is handmade with 100 percent natural ingredients, including Konjac vegetable fiber, for a better clean that reveals smooth, refreshed skin. It is dermatologist tested for use both morning and night to wash away dirt, oil and makeup, leaving skin glowing without over-drying or causing redness.
Pro: Love it! It does an excellent job washing my face, feels gentle, and restores my smooth skin. I don’t have any worries about using it daily. Plus, $5.99!
Neutral: It is a little hard to hold. When you first open the package, the sponge is hard like a piece of packing material, but a little trip into the water and it goes completely soft. It fits right into your hand, but can be a little difficult to grip.
Con: After using the sponge, you are supposed to rinse it out and leave it to air dry. After a week of use, my sponge has never dried completely between morning and evening uses. I’m concerned about issues this might cause as I continue to use it. So I’m keeping an eye on it.
