boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge With Bamboo Charcoal
Hi dolls! I want to talk about boscia’s charcoal sponge. I saw this demonstrated at a beauty event a few months back, and immediately ran out to purchase it.
The sponge is rock hard when you get it, and slowly softens with warm water into a super soft pillowy sponge – the demo was very cool. It comes with a little white string so you can hang it up to dry. Now – I hate to say it, but I don’t see what the big deal about it is. It performed exactly like it looks – like a sponge. It wasn’t terrible, but I don’t think it was effective at all. The hype around it made me want to try it and I expected something more from my purchase. It could be that it’s just not my thing – I really like to scrub my face, which is why I’m a huge Clarisonic fan. This sponge was simply too gentle when wet, and I felt like It didn’t get my face really CLEAN.
I should also note that I never used it to take makeup off – I use Neutrogena face wipes for that. So all I wanted from this sponge was to give my face a good clean. I’m also not sure where the bamboo charcoal comes in. This could have been my fault, but I was under the impression that the bamboo charcoal properties would bring something extra to this sponge – a clean, refreshing feeling maybe? A gritty, exfoliating clean? I’ve used it with and without soap and still wasn’t in love with it. Again, this is all just my opinion and I do prefer a more aggressive face scrub. I just wasn’t wowed by this product! Anyone else try it? Here's the Sephora link if you want to read more about it:
Thanks for reading!
