Hi all, hope you’re well and having a great week.
On today’s post, I’ll be sharing with you my latest beauty find; a review for The Konjac Sponge by The Konjac Sponge Company (KSC).
The KSC pride their sponges on being the original and best Konjac Sponges with the purest Konjac and mineral extracts. Its natural composition is effective in aiding exfoliation, deeply cleansing and detoxify skin for a radiant complexion. It also is gentle enough for sensitive skin and babies. With their wide range of sponges, they are able to cater towards differing skin types.
In case you’re quite like me and wonder what exactly Konjac really is? It is a perennial plant native to Asia, mostly grown in high altitudes. As a natural food source, it is alkaline and 97% water with pH neutral, leaving the skin perfectly balanced.
In ensuring that the quality of their product isn’t compromised, all sponges are made by hand and carefully tested for authenticity and purity. Their products also carry the Leaping Bunny and Vegan Society symbols, qualifying it as green, ethical and free from animal testing or cruelty.
Each sponge comes in a well-wrapped plastic, protecting it from external derogatory agents, i.e. dust and bacteria. Its initial form is hard in texture, requiring one to hydrate with warm water to soften. The soft texture of the sponge feels very much like the fluffiest sponge cake ever! I really do mean it.
Imagines burying face in vanilla creamed fluffy sponge cake, hmm…! Take a bite while at it. Wonder what that’d be like. Cake smash, anyone? Haha!
Whilst it might not be essential that one includes a cleansing facial agent when using the sponge, I personally wouldn’t do without. As I’ll feel more comfortable knowing that products I might have used either during my morning or night care routine, are completely taken off. For that reason, I tend to add on a pea-size of Neutrogena’s grapefruit daily scrub. On days I have on makeup, I use Neutrogena’s grapefruit facial wash first to break down the makeup. Rinse off, then followed by the Konjac Sponge with the pea-size daily scrub to take off the remnants.
The sponge really is gentle on skin and does aid effective exfoliation. You can also use around eyes with no cause to worry, and it is helpful in taking off waterproof makeup products, which usually are tasking during cleansing – for me anyway. Besides cleansing and exfoliating, the use of the sponge does allow the glow beneathe the skin to surface; leaving the sking bright and appealing.
For re-use, it’s advised that the sponge is well rinsed and hung to dry, which I do. You may also store in the fridge to keep it fresh and cool, which does help the sponge to last longer as its properties are maintained.
Overall, I very much like this product and have no negative remarks regarding it. It is Funmi approved!
