If we told you that root vegetables and charcoal were both “so hot” in skincare right now, you might not believe us. But both ingredients are known for their vitamins and purifying properties. And they both happen to be in our new favorite beauty find — the Morihata Binchotan facial puff.

This unique cleansing tool extracts toxins and impurities from your skin, while simultaneously exfoliating and moisturizing. The craziest part? You don’t even need to use a face wash to strip away all that dirt, oil and makeup. Everything you need is packed right into the magic sponge.

The sponge is also great for sensitive and acne-prone skin — it even can prevent breakouts! So if you’re like us, and need to buy at least one new beauty product a week to cheer you up in the winter, we suggest getting a set of sponges for $32.
