Haul / Cult Beauty

I placed a cheeky order on Cultbeauty.co.uk a couple of weeks ago - I had a few items on my wishlist that I wanted to try but not easily available on the high street and also took advantage of a £5 off voucher.
Cor The Silver Soap: I got the smaller size because this is pretty pricey and I have no idea if I'll like it since I have never used it before. Sorry it's still wrapped but I'm gonna keep it sealed until I'm ready to use it - I'm currently testing out the Konjac Sponge first, see below. Review to follow, as always.
The Konjac Sponge with French Pink Clay: I've been interested in this sponge for a while but since I got the Clarisonic last Christmas, I really didn't see the point of mixing too many new things at once. I finally decided to give it a go and got the pink clay version which is targeted for sensitive skin.
So basically with this sponge, you don't need to use any cleanser or detergent but just water; they are made from a special natural fibre, similar to potato, that is ph balanced and should naturally deep cleanse and gently exfoliate the skin (we'll see). 
I've been using it for 3 days now both morning and evening - as directed, au naturel; so far I'm liking the low maintenance and simplicity but it's too early to tell if this new routine, it's gonna upset my skin.
For what I've heard, the most important thing is to rinse it really, really well after each use and it should last 3 months. Anybody used this sponge before? Any tips?

Ginvera Green Tea Whitening Marvel Gel: I tried this more than a year ago but I couldn't really tell the different because the sample was too small (link). Then, I read about people raving about it and I've been intrigued to try it out properly. I'm curious about the 'mechanics' of how it works (if it does work), I haven't see anything else similar on the market. You're supposed to use it every day: apply to dry skin and massage the gel until it dries out and starts to form wee balls/flakes (a bit like an eraser on paper) and finally rinse with water. I don't know, sounds a bit rubbish and I've already regretted buying it... all I can add is: I-really-hope-it-works! 
Finally, the website also lets you choose your samples which is nice: I got a couple of cleansers 'cause I'm always on the hunt for a good one and some Rahua that are the best shampoo and conditioner that I have ever used.
Have you used of these products before? Yay or Nay?
