Put down your loofa ladies and clear some space for the konjac sponge! This little odd looking sponge is going to change the way you wash your face. It looks a little like a brillow pad but you won’t be scrubbing pots with this guy!
I stumbled upon the Eco Tools konjac sponge while wandering around Target, surprise, surprise! I was super intrigued but a little apprehensive because I have very sensitive skin. I can’t use any products with perfumes or dyes. My skin immediately gets red and before I know it, I have a rash down the side of my face and neck. Naturally, I wasn’t too sure what exactly a facial exfoliating sponge would do to my face. I tried it on a weekend and I absolutely loved the results! My skin immediately felt softer and wasn’t red at all!
What exactly is a konjac sponge?
This teardrop shaped sponge is made from vegetable fibers. It acts like any other sponge; once you add water the sponge will puff up and become super soft. To use this sponge is very simple. Using your regular cleanser, apply it to your face as you normally would.Then after activating the sponge with water, use the sponge in circular motions to deposit the cleanser around your face and flush out impurities. There are several uses to this cutie little sponge. It’s fabulous for exfoliating, removing dirt, oil, and makeup from the skin. Who could have thought this tiny sponge could have so many purposes?
The konjac sponge is a little bit like a loofa. However, a loofa is a lot coarser than the konjac. The vegetable fibers of the konjac sponge are so gentle on the skin but it’s still an amazing facial exfoliator! The teardrop shape fits perfectly in the palm of your hand and allows for easy circular motions. Say goodbye to dead, flakey skin in an instant!
The sponge I have is a regular good ol’ fashion konjac sponge. However, there are other konjac sponges with activated charcoals that are supposed to go deeper within your skin and really deep clean everything. I’m not 100% sure if those are accurate claims being that I haven’t come across any at Target!
