I got this Konjac Sponge last month and I’ve been using it almost daily. I like it a lot, so I though I should talk about it on my blog.
The sponge I have is from Konjac Sponge Company and it’s the French Green Clay Konjac Facial Puff Sponge, at £8.99. The sponge is 100% Natural, free from colouring and additives.
You might have heard about Konjac as a low-calories pasta. It’s a sort of potato, a perennial plant from Asia that was used for hundreds of years.
I feel it cleans the face very good. I’ve been using it with and without cleanser and I think the results are pretty much similar. It exfoliates the skin gently and it feels smooth and clean. Because it’s similar, I usually use it without cleanser.
My sponge is made with French green clay. This clay is a strong antiseptic and it’s recommended for combination skin, like mine. To use the sponge, keep it for less than 1 minute in the water until it gets soft. When it’s dry it will harden.
To make sure the sponge will last as much as possible, air-dry the sponge after using. Sounds more complicated than it actually is, I just hang it on the taps in the bathtub. I imagine this is a more hygienic way to keep the sponge anyway. With care, the sponge should last for 3 months. It can be put in the compost bin. Another use, according to their website is for the garden, to help water the plants by holding moisture. I might try it in a couple of months.
The sponge has the Leaping Bunny certification and another one from the Vegan Society.
I like the sponge a lot and I will get more of these sponges in the future. Have you tried The Konjac Sponge before?
