A couple of weeks ago The Konjac Sponge Company reached out to me and generously sent three of their sponges. Konjac Sponges have been on my radar for a while and I am thrilled to actually try them out.
Now that I have tried them, I’m kind of obsessed! The sponge’s claim is that it helps clean up your skin even without a cleanser. For me, just using the sponge as a tool to wash my face is very relaxing.
The sponge is dry and hard in its packaging, but after it’s been soaked in water it turns soft and pliable. I washed my face with the sponge and a cleanser together, then rinsed off with the sponge with no product added. I like the gentle texture and the soothing sensation of the sponge on my skin.
In my opinion, this sponge is a helpful tool for people who like to use something with their cleanser to get a deep clean. It is also a marvelous preventive for those of us who are too fond of picking at our skin, as it keeps our fingers from touching those tempting spots on our faces. Air drying the sponge after use is highly recommended, as it is still moist and you don’t want to encourage the growth of bacteria. Plus, letting it get all dry and hard means you’ll have to soak it again and it’s kind of fun to watch it change to such a wonderfully useful item.
Thank you, Konjac Sponge Company! I am a total convert!
