Review: Konjac Sponge with French Green Clay

Back in May, I reviewed the Konjac Sponge with Bamboo Charcoal, and overall I loved it! Eventually, it started breaking apart (as it was supposed to), and it sadly found its way into my trashcan.

I was really excited to receive another type of Konjac sponge, this time infused with French green clay. I figured that, since I liked the first one so much, this would be great as well! I was also excited about the addition of the green clay, because of the added benefits that it can detoxify, clarify, and exfoliate (in addition to some additional healing properties).

Overall, I have liked using this sponge (it is still going strong). I like the softness of it, and I feel like I can get all of the soap out of it each time I use it in the shower. It dries well, but it is easy to rewet and reuse each day. I have noticed a few breakouts, which is unusual for me, as I tend to have clear skin. I would guess that this is for two reasons: the starting of exfoliation (although with extended use, they have cleared up) and the introduction of the French green clay could have both triggered them.

In comparing this to the bamboo, I would actually get the bamboo instead of this one, but I would still recommend this (if you want the French green clay).

Great product! Highly encourage using it over other facial sponges!

Konjac Facial Sponge Review - DoyleDispatch.com

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!

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!

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.
