New From EcoTools!

EcoTools recently released a new skincare line, so I am here today with a review! I've never used any EcoTools products before so I was excited to give them a try, since they are very affordable! 


A few weeks ago I received** the New Skin Perfecting Brush! It is made with cruelty free bristles, recycled aluminium ferrule and a sleek bamboo base. This brush is designed with an angled edge to easily apply makeup to the corners of the eyes and around the nose. It is cut out of a brush that is specially designed for use with BB/CC cream consistency for smooth application. I am not much of a BB/CC cream wearer - I prefer the medium coverage that a foundation provides, so I only used this brush to apply foundation. This brush was okay - the shape of it is great for getting around the eyes and nose, but I found that it soaked up alot of product, and took alot of work to blend foundation in. I found that even after quite a bit of blending that it left brush streaks that I needed to blend out with my fingers. I'm interested to see if it works a little differently with a tinted moisturiser. Overall, I don't think that this brush is necessary to complete a collection. It retails for $9.99 and it is available online through Farley Co (HERE).




I also received the Pure Complexion Facial Sponge for Sensitive Skin! This sponge is made out of 100% natural ingredients, made out of vegetable fibre, and is both fragrance and colourant free. This sponge is supposed to provide you with a better clean, so it creates smoother skin and leaves you with better results when using your makeup brushes! I have been putting this sponge to the test for the past few weeks, and it is very interesting! When dry, this sponge is very hard. When I first received it, I was pretty sceptical about it - but when wet, it becomes a very soft and dense sponge. I have been using this with Ole Henriksen's African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser (Review HERE), and although it feels great on my skin, I haven't noticed any changes. I regularly use a Clarisonic to wash my face, so I don't think that this tool is necessary in my skincare routine, but it's a great alternative for people on a budget! This past weekend I handed this off to my brother to help him with his skin, and he seems to like it... but then again, what do boys know about skin care? 


This sponge also took around 16+ hour to completely dry out. I also noticed that this sponge was very sudsy, which made it difficult to rinse out. Sponges kind of gross me out because you never know how clean you are actually getting them. Sponges to me are just a housing spot for bacteria, aha. Probably for this reason, EcoTools also recommends that you replace the sponge every 2-3 months for a better clean.


EcoTools also makes a Deep Cleansing Sponge with bamboo charcoal to remove impurities and reveal smooth and fresh skin! Both sponges retail for $11.99 and you can order them online from Farley Co (HERE)!

  1. Haha! I thought the seashell (rock? thing?) was a tool for a second and nearly cried for your skin. I really liked the sponge, but I don't use a Clarisonic... But I get that it would be a bit redundant to use both.
