I’d seen konjac facial sponges on the market and was excited to try one, especially the ones from The Konjac Sponge Company. They have a range of different ones for different skin types and have released their Mythical Creatures Collection. They are quite clever little cleansing sponges as you don’t need any other product, the sponge does all the work.
I have to admit, I’ve tried a cleansing sponge from a beauty subscription box a while a ago and wasn’t that impressed with it. But the one I received from The Konjac Sponge Company was a totally different story.
These sponges are made from 100% vegetable fibre and not only kind to your skin but also completely biodegradable so they’re kind to the environment too. Each box is fully recyclable and comes with a cute little hook to make it easy to hang up while your sponge is not in use. This is such a brilliant idea as it means your sponge can dry out completely before you next want to cleanse your face. I think the Mythical Unicorn looks adorable hanging in my bathroom, the collection also includes a dragon and a mermaid which are designed for specific skin types. How fab is that?
The sponge is made from the konjac plant root which is packed with loads of benefits to keep your skin looking and feeling it’s best. It gives your skin a deep cleanse, removing any dirt and grime, gently exfoliating to give your complexion a wonderful healthy glow. The sponge is even soft enough to use around the delicate eye area yet still be effective and also helps to reduce any puffiness. This konjac sponge is my skins new best friend and I’ve been using it as part of my daily cleansing routine for a few weeks now. I have extremely sensitive skin, so you imagine how pleased I was that the sponge didn’t cause any reaction at all, my skin feels so soft and smooth. A couple of people even commented on how glowing my skin looked and that was after I had started using the konjac sponge!
It’s such a simple tool to use as it works so well, cleansing and exfoliating all in one, without leaving your skin feeling dry or tight.
How To Use
- Rinse well before use and make sure the sponge is completely wet.
- Massage in circular movements across your skin, especially on any problem areas. Although you don’t have to use any extra products I preferred using mine with a small amount of my normal cleanser.
- Rinse the sponge thoroughly after use and gently squeeze out any excess water.
- Hang it on the hook to dry out completely and it’s ready for the next time you want to use it.
- Vegan and Cruelty Free registered
It really is as easy as that and I would definitely recommend these sponges to anyone who doesn’t want to spend too long on their beauty routine. It feels a bit strange at first, almost like you’re holding a blob of jelly in your hand but believe me it works!
These sponges are meant to last up to 3 months but should probably replace it if you notice yours starting to break down before then.
