Customer Reviews

  • Easy to Use

    Meredith April 02, 2020

    I bought this in hopes for a gentle exfoliant and it was just that! A little soap with this goes a very long way… and it looks cute in my shower!

  • Simple addition to my beauty routine

    Lindsey R. February 15, 2020

    First, the shape is adorable! This sponge is great for gently exfoliating without leaving my skin feeling tight and unpleasant! I love it and have bought it more than I once! it definitely helps to hang it to dry outside of the shower where it can fully dry out!

  • Not what I Expected

    Kelly G. May 22, 2019

    I’m not sure what I expected, but I did not like this cleansing sponge. Maybe the heart shape caught my attention. I can’t say that I wold recommend.

  • Was not evyethijf I wished it was.

    Chloe D. March 19, 2019

    The shape is adorable along with the packaging. Although,the sponge is hard to dry even while hanging it up. It takes 2 days to fully dry out. I think it does do a great job of exfoliating gently. I think it’s cool and I will continue to use it until I can’t again ,but I will not be repurchasing.

  • Scrub Your Face Away!

    Valeria M. March 07, 2019

    I’ve been using the charcoal sponge for a couple of weeks and it’s one of the best sponges that I’ve used, also because I have sensitive skin. It’s not abrasive and it’s gentle enough to scrub a little harder than normal without getting red. For anyone who has combination AND sensitive skin, absolutely recommend this sponge!

  • Great for sensitive skin!

    Gabriella D. January 28, 2019

    This product is a great way to get more out of your face washing routine. I use it with the Osea ocean cleanser. It exfoliates but is much more gentle on the skin than a typical brush or sponge. My skin feels so soft and clean after I use it and I use it every other day. I like that it is gentle because my skin can be really sensitive but I don’t think someone who is looking for a more textured sponge would love it.

  • Love at first wash

    Amanda R. December 27, 2018

    Easy to use. My skin feels clean after. Cute and heart shaped. Comes with a string so you can hang it somewhere to dry. Lasts many washes before you have to replace it. Most importantly, it’s not harsh on your skin!

  • The perfect addition to my skincare routine

    Ellen S. December 13, 2018

    This sponge is amazing! With the charcoal cleansing sponge, I can use the gentle face wash that my skin needs while still getting that deep clean feeling. The sponge gently exfoliates without damage and it’s great for daily use. HIGHLY recommend!

  • Texture smooth for all skin tyoes

    Pearlyne P. December 01, 2018

    I have combination skin so I worry about a sponge not getting all my the dirt out of my skin. After using this you not only feel like your skin is clean, but it also gently exfoliates!

  • New Favorite!

    Allison K. November 25, 2018

    I am always afraid to try new skincare items due to sensitive, acne prone skin. This is perfect for gentle exfoliation and feels so good. My skin is soft and it has only helped my skin!

  • Awesome little sponge

    Jessica F. November 24, 2018

    This sponge is awesome! I use it with my Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser and the two make the best combo. My face is brighter and texture feels so much smoother! Highly recommend the two!

  • Feels good

    Ivette G. October 03, 2018

    This sponge just feels good on my face. It’s a nice way to give my face a gentle massage. My skin feels and looks better. The only negative thing I would say is that I thought it was going to be more of an exfoliant, but it’s smoother than I expected.

  • A wonderful deep clean

    Lauren K. August 13, 2018

    I’ve been using this in the evening to get a deeper clean after a long day and it’s been a lovely way for my skin to feel lightly exfoliated and remove all the grime. Happy with the purchase!

  • So fun

    Meredith M. June 08, 2018

    I love this thing! I use it with a gel wash at night. It gets the product deeper into my skin without a harsh exfoliant like a brush. If you wash after every use it really does last 2 months.

  • Love love

    Kristin R. April 24, 2018

    I love this charcoal sponge. I have been using it with the Farmaesthetics Herbal Cleanser and feel like it’s a perfect combo. Makes washing my face in the mornings a little more fun!

  • It works!

    Meghan K. March 06, 2018

    I like this product for exfoliating maybe once a week. It leaves my skin clean and clear but can be a bit over drying and has a strange odor that the charcoal bar does not have.

  • Extra help

    Catherine H. March 05, 2018

    Great with the liquid face washes to help remove winter dry skin for clear smooth skin.

  • Gentle Exfoliation

    Brooke B. February 05, 2018

    Love this product! It gently exfoliates and helps my sensitive skin and combats acne without over drying. Great with or without face wash. This is going to be a regular in my rotation!

  • Life changing!

    Hannah B. January 24, 2018

    This sponge is a tiny miracle worker. My skin feels softer and softer every time I use it.

  • love

    Elise B. September 29, 2017

    This is inexpensive and a great tool for light exfoliation. Mine has lasted a few months, using it every day or two days. I will order again.

  • Great exfoliator!

    Maggie S. September 28, 2017

    I use this in the mornings with just water. It’s so fun and calming to use — I really enjoy how luxourious it feels. I’ve used it with cleanser but prefer it alone.

  • Effective & Inexpensive Exfoliation

    Jessica C. September 28, 2017

    What I love about this charcoal sponge is that it’s: a) cheap, b) cute, c) simple, d) effective. I was looking for a gentle way to exfoliate 1-2 times a week (besides my weekly clay or acid mask). This sponge is the ticket for my skin (oily). I usually use it in the morning, and it leaves my skin feeling smoother and looking clearer (seriously, there is a visible difference).

    Skin product and makeup go on great after cleansing with this. Plus, the heart shape gives it the ability to easily glide in around the corners of the nose and mouth. It usually lasts me 2-4 months, depending on how often I use it!

  • Loofah for your face

    Gs June 10, 2016

    I have the pink and it’s great of everyday use. Very soft and much more diligent with my cleanser than my fingers are. Can’t wait to try the charcoal.

  • Soft + Smooth

    Abbey May 10, 2016

    This little charcoal sponge has my heart. It is perfect for my nightly cleanse to buff away the day. I have acne prone, sensitive skin + this does not dry my face out or irritate it. If you’re thinking about switching to this from the Clarisonic – do it! Shout out to Amy at Beacon Hill for the recommendation!

  • Love that pink heart!

    Sue March 09, 2016

    I am using the Rose Clay heart based on recommendations I received in store and I love it. I don’t use it every day, but when I need a bit of a deeper cleanse or a slight exfoliation, this magical heart does the trick. Plus, just seeing the shape hanging in my shower is an instant mood-lifter. Really enjoying it! (For reference, I hung it on one of those things that usually holds a razor up, I had an extra.) Not sure how often I will have to replace it, but I’ve had it for a few months and use just a couple times a week and it is in great shape. If you are sensitive I would heed the advice I received and try the pink rose heart over the charcoal (which might be too much for sensitive skin).

  • Unique but effective sponge

    Am November 18, 2015

    The texture of this sponge is completely unique but works amazingly. It feels smooth to the touch, even slightly slippery. It’s very very gentle but will slough off the old skin without any scratchiness. You need to try it to see what I mean but it works amazingly well to exfoliate even the most sensitive skin. I use it every time I wash my face.

  • Best cleansing tool on the market

    Tara M. April 10, 2015

    I have been a loyal clarisonic user for years. I could not believe that a $10 dollar sponge would be so much more effective on my combination skin. I used this on my dry and broken out skin this winter and saw an instant difference. It makes my skin smooth and clears out my pores without leaving my skin feeling dry. The string allows you to hang up the sponge to dry. This helps the sponge dry fast and evenly in between uses.

  • Great for exfoliating

    Greta February 28, 2015

    The One Love Organics cleansing sponge does a great job of gently exfoliating my mature, sensitive skin. I use it once or twice a week, and it makes my skin glow.
