Hello and welcome back to my blog.
Today I’d like to talk about this Konjac Sponge that I received in a recent beauty box.
If you’re like me and never even heard of a konjac sponge before, here is the meaning:
Made from natural konjac root (a porous vegetable that grows in Asia), konjac sponges were first created as a way for Japanese farmers to cleanse a baby’s skin, so they’re a much gentler way to exfoliate dead or dry skin during your daily face wash.
So as you can see, it’s basically a natural exfoliator. I’ve tried this a few times, with only water and with make up remover and … just didn’t like it. It was indeed very gentle but that’s exactly what I personally don’t need. I want something where I can literally feel my skin becoming clean (like this peel mask!). Also, it felt a bit weird. Like a beauty blender but a little more squishy.
However, I can also see why other people like it. It’s soft, gentle and very easy to use. Unfortunately it just wasn’t for me.
Please let me know if you had a konjac sponge before and if you liked it! Or do you think this is just a new gimmick that no one really needs?
