I’ve recently heard people talk about konjac Sponges, so I was excited when I got the chance to review one free for an unbiased review.
The My Konjac Sponge All Natural Fiber Bamboo Charcoal Facial Sponge is made from 100% Konjac Plant Root Natural Bamboo Charcoal. It contains activated carbon and various minerals that are suppose to enhance absorption. It also contains natural antioxidants that claims to help fight acne causing bacteria. It is 100% natural and cruelty free and vegan friendly.
Ingredients listed are: Pure Konjac Powder, Water, Bamboo Charcoal
- Rinse and soak sponge until it becomes soft
- Gently massage face in a circular motion
- Rinse after use, then squeeze out water and hang to dry.
The Konjac Sponge is suppose to gently exfoliate and can be used with cleanser or alone.
Now to my review… When I first received the product it was very hard. I then did as the directions said and soaked the sponge until it became soft. The first time I use it I tried it without any cleanser, just so I could see how it would do. Honestly, it felt a little weird at first… like I was using a dish sponge on my face. I then massaged it on my face in a circular motion. It doesn’t foam, but did leave a slight film. I then rinsed my face, and rinsed the sponge, and hung it to dry as directed..
I don’t really feel like it exfoliated my skin much. It may work better if I use it with my cleanser next time. It didn’t irritate, and my skin does feel slightly softer, but probably not any more so than If I used a regular cleanser.
I like the ease and convenience of this. You don’t have to worry about using a rotating cleansing brush or even cleanser if you want. You could easily just pack this one sponge with you when you go on a trip or something. It is also suppose to last 3-6 months, so that is longer than most cleansers last if you are using them daily. You can also sterilize this every couple weeks either by boiling it in water or putting it in the microwave for a couple minutes. This is also a great product for someone who really values all natural products.
This product worked okay for me, and I like the simplicity of it. It does have several advantages, but It will probably not be my daily go to product. They do offer other sponges for different skin types, so I might try a different one to see which works best for my skin.
