A couple of weeks ago, I received a Konjac Sponge to try out and review. I was very curious about this, as I typically only wash my face with my face wash and sometimes a washcloth. I don’t usually have dry skin, so I don’t typically exfoliate, but I was willing to give the sponge a try.
Here’s some information from the manufacturer:
Konjac is a moisture rich plant fibre which is by nature alkaline, and thus balances the acidity of the skin’s impurities and oils. The unique net like structure of the sponge gently massages the skin, breaks down dirt, stimulates blood flow and new growth of skin cells. Leaving the skin extremely clean and refreshed!
pureSOL Konjac Sponge is unbelievably soft and excellent for all skin types! It is made of 100% pure vegetable fiber and processed without any coloring or additives, great for hypersensitive skin!
IMPROVES SKIN TEXTURE: pureSOL Konjac Facial Sponge gently exfoliates while deep cleansing and removing any toxins and impurities, leaving you with a radiant complexion. It is extremely soft and gentle for everyday skin care. Great for all skin types.
BRIGHTER LOOKING SKIN: The natural woven fibers of the sponge gently massage the skin and stimulate blood flow. It detoxifies and encourages skin renewal while balancing the skins pH, leaving your skin extremely clean and refreshed!
PREVENTS SPOTS, BLACKHEADS AND BREAKOUTS: The added BAMBOO CHARCOAL contains activated carbon and essential minerals to deeply cleanse and absorb excess sebum, toxins and other harmful chemicals from your skin. You will see your pores getting smaller, tightening and brightening your skin.
100% NATURAL AND ECO-FRIENDLY: Why compromise your health with products that contain harsh chemicals and additives on your skin? pureSOL Konjac Sponge is completely natural, eco-friendly and free of parabens, sulphates & chemicals. It is biodegrade, cruelty free and vegan. After use, you can compost the sponge and feel good about the environment! You can even add it to your flower pot! At pureSOL our packaging is 90% compostable.
EASY-TO- HANG SUCTION HOOK: A must have for you konjac sponge! Perfect for hanging in a well-ventilated space so it’s dry and ready for you to use the following day. No more searching for something to hang your pureSOL Konjac Sponge on!
I received the Konjac Sponge at the end of a really bad cold, and I had been blowing my nose for days and days, which made it really dried out. After just two days of using it along with my typical face wash, I noticed that the dryness and rough skin was completely gone. My normal, healthy skin was back around my nose.
I really like how soft and flexible the sponge is, as it really doesn’t feel rough or harsh at all. It gently exfoliates, so I really do believe that it is good for all skin types. It has the density and squishiness of a new sink sponge, although it has a shinier look and smoother finish to it. It is easy to get the soap out of it after each use, and I like that it has a string to hang it easily for drying. The suction cup/hook fell off within minutes of hanging it in the shower, but that may be because we have an old drop-in shower instead of real tile or glass. Instead, I just hang it on our shower caddy.
If you are looking for something natural and different, I would definitely recommend it. At $10.95, it’s a little expensive for its size, but it does a great job and lasts for a while, so you definitely get your money’s worth.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
