Review: The Japanese Konjac Sponge

Awhile back I had a post comparing Konjac sponges to (manual) facial brushes, you can check it out here, so I was thrilled when I was presented with the opportunity to review a different brand of a Konjac sponge! The one I have for you today is The Japanese Konjac Sponge and in particular the Bamboo Charcoal Puff. You can purchase this one off Amazon with free shipping and I can tell you that I got it within two days of ordering it and I don't have Prime! 

I'm going to just give a brief description on Konjac sponges. Konjac (pronounced KOHN-yak) is a plant native to tropical areas in Asia, specifically in Japan, areas of China and Indonesia. It is within the yam family and the root is the part you eat, as well as what Konjac sponges are made of. This particular puff contains bamboo charcoal making it an ideal tool to use with oily and acne prone skin.

The sponge comes in a box and I love that all sides are printed with information and warning about the product.

Also inside the box there is a small card with step by step instructions on how to use the sponge.

What's so great about these sponges is that you can use them with or without cleanser but either way you are rewarded with skin that immediately feels softer and smoother but never irritated. It is important to allow the sponge to get fully soft before use but it is quite hard and sharp when it is dry.
What I like about this particular sponge is the shape. It is a half dome and the perfect size to fit comfortable in my palm. It is easy to use and conforms to the shape of my face easily so I know I am getting a deep clean with it.

This is a fantastic proud and I love all the different types available that cater to any skin concern. Konjac sponges are gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin yet still able to provide excellent exfoliation. They are ideal for every day use and can really bring the best out of any facial cleanser. I highly recommend checking out this brand on Amazon and trying a Konjac sponge out!
