I have blemish prone & hyper sensitive skin. It's so oily even in the dead of an Alaskan winter. I have used this on/off for a few years now but have never found the charcoal one in stock anywhere. I've always used the original white sponge. It feels so smooth on the skin & helps my Alba Botanica Deep Pore Wash that is free of sulfates foam up tremendously. This makes my skin way less oily than just cleansing with my hands which reduced the amount of black & whiteheads I get during the day or night. Since the texture of this sponge is so soft it doesn't leave my skin red or irritated, in fact it seems to soothe my skin as if my face is getting a gentle massage each time I use it. Never be without it now.

Actually purifies clogged pores gently! Love this little guy, bought it on a whim online, curious about the texture. If you've been relying on silicone pore cleansing brushes until now, save those for cleansing your makeup brushes, instead! This is the most gentle thing you'll ever use on your face (including eyelids) and even the most sensitive of skins will appreciate how it feels.

It arrives hard, almost like a super-light pumice-stone but it rehydrates immediately, expands and becomes as soft as a sea sponge, but way smoother, with a cooling sensation, almost jelly-like.

Konjac is said to be alkaline, it promises to break down acidic oil residue easily. It holds ten times more water than it weighs, so it is said konjac sponge will never actually come in direct contact with your skin, thus making it gentle enough for your eyes. Originally it was used in baby care, so if it's good for a baby, it's gotta be great for the mommy.

I'm obsessed with this egg-shaped hard worker, as it is by far the most gentle and effective exfoliator my hypersensitive skin has ever experienced.

I use it on my entire face, including lips and eyelids, and in 3 weeks of use I noticed that enlarged and clogged pores near my nose vanished entirely, while the overall appearance of pores reduced significantly. It creates rich lather with the tiniest bit of cleanser and I also need less moisturiser as a result of using this tool.

One con: it's $10 you have to fork out every month or two, as this little guy wears out.
Reuse: bury it at the bottom of a moisture loving plant if you're a forgetful gardener.

I have the darker deep cleaning one. The lighter one is for sensitive skin and while I do have sensitive skin, I took a chance with the other one. I'm always leary about scrubbing my face because it doesn't take much for my face to become inflamed and irritated and even using sensitive scrubs have broken me out in tiny bumps. This sponge is super hard in the packaging but softens up once you wet it and becomes about as squishy as a beauty blender and similar in shape and size. The texture of the sponge is odd. Feels almost plastic. I remove my eye makeup with some Vaseline and scrub my face with the sponge to take my foundation off. I can comfortably apply quite a bit of pressure without irritating my skin. I just run it along my bar soap to create a little lather. I've used my clarisonic right after this sponge and noticed the brush head looks clean so it is extremely effective in removing makeup. This is also great for a quick wash right when I wake up before putting on my makeup without needing to get suds and splash water all over the place. I hate getting water all over my sink from repeatingly rinsing soap off my face. I'm hoping this doesn't turn against me any time soon because it's so convenient, gentle, and affordable. I paid under $6 at Walmart.

This thing is great! I'm not to happy with the price point though. This feels so nice on your skin and doesn't feel rough like other products I've tried like this. Though I will say the first one I bought was defective. If you are on the fence about it I would just get it. This is a hg product!

I bought this sponge to thoroughly cleanse my face when I travel. I travel a lot in Europe and many hotels do not provide face cloths. Good points: it is contoured to fit in your hand and it feels nice on the skin. What I don't like it that it doesn't remove all my eye make up easily. It also takes some time to dry so when I am traveling I need to pack it in a plastic bag. You can hang it from an attached string to dry. It dries very hard.
I don't think it cleans any better than a face cloth and maybe not as well. I rate it as average.

I love this product! I used to use a much harsher exfoliating pad for my face, and it just felt like too much. But this is so gentle. I love how it hardens and then gets soft when it's wet. I've found that it works the best after I wash my face. So I wash all the face wash off and then use this on my bare skin (usually in the shower so my skin is nice and soft already)...this makes it extra soft and smooth and helps my make up go on really well!

I liked this new concept but couldn't use it after I realized it didn't even dry completely between uses.

this is a great cleansing sponge! i purchased the one in sensitive--although i don't have sensitive skin--and the regular one and both do a great job! it's not rough or anything and my face feels great after using it. i don't see much of a difference between the two but for some reason i tend to like the regular one more.
it's fairly affordable at $6, depending on where you get it. you can even get it for cheaper at ulta with their $3.50 off $10 coupon, plus manufacturer's coupons. the only thing about this is that it lasts about a month before it begins to fall apart, which isn't the best but at least it doesn't cost a fortune.

I love, love, LOVE this sponge.
I saw it on display at Marshalls and had to buy it because I love Eco Tools products!
I bought this sponge in the SENSITIVE version and its so gentle on my skin!
The sponge is made with 100% natural ingredients and is fragrance-free, colorant-free and dermatologist tested. Once I took it home and got it out of the package, I thought I might have made a mistake buying it because the sponge was as hard as a rock but I realized it completely softens when wet.

At night, I run the sponge under the water until its a little moist and scrunch it and then put it under the water a couple more times like that until the entire sponge is completely moist. I wet my face and put on my cream cleanser and just buff my face in circular motion with the sponge. It is excellent at getting makeup off my face and out of my pores. Once you buff all the makeup, it leaves makeup color on the white sponge but you only have to scrunch it under water to get it all out and off the sponge. Where I live the sponge is pricey, I paid 9.00 for one. The sponge will last 1-3 months depending on how use it and care for it. I literally use this sponge every night now. I have dry and sensitive skin and this is the answer to my prayers. HG product!

This sponge is the bomb dot com!! I've been using it as my cleansing sponge for my day & night skin care routine & it cleans dirt & makeup effortlessly & exfoliates so gently! It's unlike any sponge I've ever used. At first use you think it's not exfoliating but it is! I will keep using this over & over!! Love it!! 😍😍
