Discover your next obsession with our Editor’s Pick series, must-have products for your home, wardrobe, makeup bag, and office curated by Glam editors.

Squeaky-clean skin is happy skin, and happy skin makes a happy girl. Isn’t that how it works? Get your hands on the EcoTools Pure Complexion Sponge and you’ll see what I mean. It looks like a rock, I know, but take a chance. This handy facial cleaning tool, modeled after the exfoliating sponges that have long been on mass circulation in Asia, smooths and refreshes skin without abrasive materials. Handmade using 100 percent natural ingredients, including bamboo charcoal and Konjac vegetable fiber, the palm-sized sponge softens when dampened with water and my favorite facial cleanser, and then dries back to its denser form overnight. It’s a “got to see it to believe it” sort of thing. EcoTool’s sponge has been my go-to for getting rid of flaky dry skin leftover from winter and embracing that summer glow. Best of all, it’s travel size, meaning wherever the months ahead take me, this baby’s coming with. –Katherine Fotinos
