Facial cleansing - tools I use

Facial cleansing is a very important part of my skin care routine and today I would like to share the tools I use.

I have told you before about my Foreo Luna, click here to read the review. I have it for more than a year now and even through I don't use it daily any more, it is an important gadget in my skin care routine.

There are two new tools to share with you today, both I own thanks to my Glossybox subscription.

Spa to You Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Brush. It has soft bristles and silicone cushions to deeply cleanse and gently massage the skin.

I use it once a week or once in two weeks. Personally I find bristles soft only on touch to my fingers and in the dry state on my face, but as soon as water and cleanser are involved it is very abrasive brush. I am not 100% satisfied with its feel on my skin, but it is great for deep cleansing to improve micro-circulation, tone and enhance skin vitality. Brush itself is easy to clean and it dries out well.

If brush isn't my new favourite Spa to You Konjac Sponge is. It is small and hard as a pumice stone when it is dry, but gorgeously soft and gentle when it is soaked with water. I love the feel of it on my face. It cleanses well and exfoliates mildly what I prefer for a daily use.

It is made with 100% vegetable fibres and friendly to environment. My only reservation, it is sold soaked in some liquid which smells very "unnatural". It took me some time to cleanse the product out of the sponge. Not sure why Spa to You prefers to sell them that way.

I think I found my perfect two facial cleansing tools so far: Foreo Luna and the Konjac Sponge. Both of them compliment each other nicely. Foreo Luna with its special properties and massage and Konjac Sponge with its gentleness and ease. Just the perfect duo for me.

What is your favourite cleansing tool? Have you tried a Konjac Sponge? Do recommend in the comments below your favourite brand.
