For a while now, Konjac Sponge is one of the most talked about product on my blog. Last year in November, Tish Tash introduced me to Konjac Sponges and ever since they have been an obsession. I never looked back and these sponges became an essential in my everyday skincare routine. This probably the longest overdue post that I’ve ever had.
After using this little squashy miracle whole-heartedly for 3 whole months, I think I’m qualified to say ‘Konjac Sponge is a Miraculous Must Have for Everyone”. My intrigue level was quite HIGH when I first received the ‘6 WAVE GREEN CLAY BATH SPONGE’ for oily and blemish-prone skin and just one week later I ordered the ‘KONJAC FACIAL PUFF SPONGE FRENCH GREEN CLAY’ for my face.
What Does the Konjac Sponge Do?
Konjac Sponges feels like a soft textured bouncy marshmallow which gently exfoliates and cleanses your face and body. The provide a much more precise and intense cleansing when compared to using just your fingers. These mineral-rich sponges draw out impurities and toxins leaving a smooth fresh and toned complexion. These incredibly gentle radiance-enhancing sponges give you an instant glow and unlike harsh scrubs, it leaves your skin hydrated and extremely healthy looking.
How Do I Use the Konjac Sponge?
When you first open the Konjac sponge package, it’s a solid rock – certainly doesn’t look like something you’d put on your face. The whole idea is so fascinating to me, a solid rock expanding into a soft gentle sponge double the size, as you soak it in water.
These winter mornings I used konjac sponge with my Derma-E or my Murad Clarifying cleanser for a deep cleansing. Whereas at nights, I remove my makeup with Body Shop’s Camomile Cleansing Oil and use my wet and soaked konjac sponge without any additional cleansers in circular motions around my face and neck to remove dirt and impurities.
Then I rinse my sponge again and gently press it between my palms to squeeze the excess water and hang it up to dry. Never twist or wring out your sponge, this will tear the fibers and cause its life to end faster.
How To Care for Your Konjac Sponge?
The biggest pain with Konjac Sponge is taking care of them or you will end up shortening their life and no one wants that. Your Konjac Sponge needs to be replaced every 2-3 months depending on how you take care of it, which is quite affordable according to me.
Before and after each use, rinse well your sponge and squeeze out excess water by pressing gently the sponge in your palms instead of twisting. And leave it to completely dry between uses by hanging it in a cool dry location or else it smells fishy.
I usually disinfect my sponge every 2 weeks by placing it in boiling water for few minutes or you could even place it in micro-wave for 5 minutes.
Konjac Sponge is one product you have to try yourself for a few days consistently to see the difference. The Bamboo charcoal konjac sponge is said to be perfect for acne prone skin, and I can swear that over the past two months of using this gem, I can see my acne marks lighten up, giving an additional glow and silky smooth feel to my skin tone.
Priced at 75 and 95 AED for facial and body sponge respectively, these are quite affordable and convienet for traveling as well.
Konjac Sponge is 100% natural and made from pure edible vegetable roots. What I love about this sponge is that it is 100% Biodegradable and 100% Colouring Free.
