Konjac Face Sponge

Sunday, 26 October 2014

Last week whilst browsing some blog posts I discovered a new product (maybe not new to the world but certainly new to me!) that has revolutionised my skincare routine, the Konjac Sponge. So if like me you'd never heard of it before here's what this wonderful little sponge is all about- 

The Konjac Sponge is natures answer to skin cleansing, developed by the Japanese who have harnessed the power and benefits of the Konjac plant for centuries. The sponge is made from 100% natural vegetable fibre from vegetable roots and once you're done with it you can compost it with your household waste! The sponge is made with the purest Konjac and mineral rich extracts, detoxifying skin, exfoliating and deeply cleansing for a radiant complexion.

There are a few variations to chose from, as I have blemish prone skin I decided to go for the Konjac & Bamboo Charcoal sponge, it contains ingredients to help banish blackheads and absorb excess oils and toxins. I really expected the sponge to be rough, more like an exfoliator but once submerged into warm water it has the softest feel to it. The sponge is just the right size to sit in the plan of your hand making using it so much easier. 

You can either use the sponge alone or with you favourite cleanser. I use my Konjac sponge in the morning after cleansing to remove the last traces of my cleanser and wake up my complexion. Although this sponge feels as soft as butter it does an impressive job of exfoliating and leaving your skin baby soft! As well as deep cleansing and refining pores you can use it to exfoliate even the delicate eye area and you can use it to remove water based makeup.

The key to getting the best results from this fantastic sponge is the care of the sponge itself. You need to keep in mind this sponge is made from natural fibres so you can't wring it out like a cloth, you need to gently squeeze it between palms to get rid of excess water and hang up to dry in an airy spot to dry after use. With proper use the sponge can last for 2-3 months and at only £7.99 for such a revolutionary product  it's worth every penny.
