WHAT IS KONJAC?
The Konjac Potato or Konnyaku is a perennial plant native to Asia, and can be found growing wild at very high altitudes. A totally natural food source, Konjac is 97% water, rich in mineral goodness and low in calories. Naturally alkaline, Konjac is pH neutral which leaves skin perfectly balanced.
My Konjac Sponge (click link to purchase) came as a hard sponge. After submerging it in water for just a few seconds, it softened and became almost gelatin-like. Honestly, it feels like a sea cucumber when it’s wet. It was a little weird feeling.
This all-natural and biodegradable fiber sponge with bamboo charcoal is great for cleansing, exfoliating, and revitalizing your acne-prone and oily skin.
There are five handmade sponges, each dealing with a specific facial issue. In addition, there are two body sponges and one for babies. Each sponge is chemical-free, vegan and cruelty-free.
I used my sponge with bar soap and with liquid facial cleanser. Each soap was picked up sufficiently to wash my face and it was easily washed out. I was able to hang my sponge by the string that is strung through it. When it’s completely dry, it becomes hard again.
You should microwave your sponge in water every two weeks to sanitize it. Because these sponges are all-natural, they need to be replaced approximately every three months.
My Konjac Sponge is a facial cleansing sponge made of konjac fiber. It offers gentle exfoliation and cleansing without drying the skin. It also happens to be my new favorite way to wash my face!
I usually do not like physical exfoliation on the face such as scrubs or luffas. I find them too abrasive and irritating. I certainly would not use a physical exfoliate daily. Not the case with the Konjac sponge. It exfoliates very gently, it almost feels like a mild massage. As I clean, I can see the sponge absorb my makeup. I thoroughly rinse after use and squeeze the water from the sponge than hang it to dry. I think it is important to keep sponges clean.
My Konjac Sponge is a similar size to the palm of my hand. It is about four inches long, three inches wise and about one inch thick (when dry). I feel it is a good size for a facial sponge.
As I earlier mentioned a konjac sponge is my new favorite way to wash and exfoliate my face. I've been feeling a lot more comfortable going out without makeup on recently. My skin has been soft and smooth since I started using this product (though I do use moisturizers and a couple serums so it isn't all the sponge).
I highly recommend it assuming you rinse and dry your sponge after each use.
