Ecotools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge review

I have to be honest. I think facial sponges are a bit gimmicky. I'm not sure I really need them and when I think about sponges, my mind flashes back to the natural sea sponges I saw at Home Depot, the kind you use to remove left over grout when you're tiling your bathroom.... (that imagery is actually quite apropo).

 The Ecotools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge ($11.99 CDN) is made with 100% natural ingredients including Konjac vegetable fibers. Using it is supposed to produced cleaner clearer skin. You are to replace the sponge every 1-3 months.

Ecotools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge review

Upon opening the (post-consumer recylcled and recyclable paper...awesome..) packaging, you're met with a hard porous sponge. Running the sponge under some water results in a softened foam pillow for you face. FOR REALZ.

The box suggests adding your cleanser and water right onto the sponge but I'm still spreading my cleanser onto my face before rubbing the sponge onto it. The texture is really fun and pillowing. It's still solid enough to remove face dirt and give your face a good gentle buffing. It isn't harsh enough to produce dry patches.

I'm quite loving the feel of this on my face. Marshmallows. The only downside is that you have to replace one every 3 months but if you're already doing this for your Clarisonic and want to change it up, the price isn't so bad. For me, this was a great introduction to cleansing sponges. This will be perfect come winter time when dry flakes abound.

Have you tried a cleansing sponge? Do you use any tools with your cleanser to wash your face?

Daily Zen: So at one point, I contemplating doing one of those Tough Mudder Races, but who am I kidding, I can barely run without calling the ambulance. This article dissuades me and would be hilarious if the implications weren't so awful. See what they did with the title there? Hahah...except not...because diarrhea is never hilarious. (heh heh..STOP IT JENN!)
