Comments about Earth Therapeutics Purifying Vegetable Facial Sponge:

I had previously been using the Julep charcoal-infused konjac sponge but decided to try this one out as a more budget friendly version. As far as the effectiveness, I find it comperable to the Julep one. However, I do prefer the contoured shape of the other and I also find that this brand breaks down lots quicker than the Julep one. I'm not sure if its just a lower quality plant batch or if its that the much larger size of this one requires more squeezing to get dry which causes it to break down quicker. This brand does come with a string for hanging but the Julep comes with that as well as a mini suction cup to hang the string on. I think you pretty much get what you pay for so if you are curious to try out a konjac sponge this is a decent one. I do plan to repurchase this brand (until I misplace my mini suction cup).

Comments about Earth Therapeutics Purifying Vegetable Facial Sponge:

I'm a bit torn on this sponge. I love it's soft and kind nature to my skin and the fact you can use it alone for its "natural charcoal cleansing" or with a mild soap of your choice. I used quotes above only because, despite its black color, I don't feel or see the charcoal clensing effect. My blemishes haven't decreased with use and I still have visible clogged pores. My skin feels soft after its kind exfoliation, but I'm not getting the effect I was expecting, since I've gotten bettera with some other charcoal products. This sponge is good for 3 months with the right care, so I will continue to use, but at this point I haven't gotten the cleanliness and detoxifying effects it claims.

      Comments about Earth Therapeutics Purifying Vegetable Facial Sponge:

      I first learned about the konjac sponge from an ULTA email newsletter calling it the softest, most skin-friendly exfoliator. I have been curious about it ever since. My first time using the konjac sponge was a pleasant experience; it's very soft, the size and shape fit comfortably in my hand, it doesn't have an odor, and it worked wonders on my oily, rough skin. In a couple days, I've already noticed a difference in my face - my skin is much more clean and has a lighter, healthier glow. Not to mention, it's very fun to use!!! I have tried using the sponge in the shower in combination with a scrub (I use Neutrogena's Grapefruit Foaming Scrub) and that has worked really great as well. I will be stocking up while the buy one get one 50% off sale is still on to give these as holiday gifts to my friends! I looked around at other retailers who offer this product and ULTA has the best price I've seen. Very happy with my purchase :)
