The Konjac Sponge

Leave a Comment

So I had been hearing a lot about Konjac sponges recently, been bored with my normal facial routine and decided to go ahead and purchase a couple to see what the hype is all about.

So Konjac is a vegetable (a potatoe I believe) that they have been using in their diets in Asia for years and have recently started including them in their beauty routine.

As its from a natural source there are no nasty chemicals in them, so great for those with skin that's sensitive to certain chemicals in products. They have different types of sponges depending on the skin type including ones for dogs and baby's, I selected firstly a facial one for those with oily/combination skin as I unfortunately have an oily t-zone and then normal skin everywhere else.

It is the Konjac French Green Clay Sponge which supposedly is a strong antiseptic and to help on absorbing oil, dirt and bacteria. The sponge is meant to help clean out the skin from unwanted oil/dirt, revitalising dead skin sells and ending with a smoother complexion. Now i have only been using this for week, but it is great even if it is a bit strange. You basically wet the sponge with warm water till it becomes more sponge like and then rub in circular motions around your face. Now after the first couple of uses my skin did break out in certain areas, but that is to be expected when your starting with a new exfoliate. The breakout has calmed down now and after each use my skin feels a lot smoother and it seems like it is reducing my black heads, but i will let you know once I have used it for a month what it is really like.

The next one I bought is the Lilac Lady Sports Sponge, I bought this one as I thought it would be great for use after I have been to the gym, as I am at the moment going every morning during the week (and I'm trying my best to stick to that).
Its meant to cleanse the skin and help revive tired muscles after a workout, which sounds great to me. the concept is the same as the facial ones but just for all over the body. I have only used this a couple of times so far, so i can't really comment on how bad or good it is but I shall let you know soon.

Have any of you guys used a konjac sponge before, what did you think?

I am now also tempeted to invest in som frank body scrub, any thoughts??
