The Konjac Sponge Company Review




The Konjac Sponge Company has been on my list of brands to try for a while now, I have always been so intrigued to try their skincare sponges and see how well they perform with my problematic skin so I was over the moon to be able to put it to the test.

For those who don't know, Konjac Sponges are made by hand and are 100% natural, vegan and free from microbes & pollutants. That makes me love the brand even more! All their sponges are rich in minerals and Konjac which exfoliate, cleanse and detoxes the skin.
Konjac is a potato perennial plant native to Asia. It is 97% water, rich in minerals and is low in calories so it is fabulous to eat! Konjac is also pH neutral for a perfectly balanced complexion.

I decided to get the Bamboo Charcoal sponge which retails for £8.99. This particular sponge is for oily and spot prone skin which you all know is my skin type but you can get so many to suit your skin type. If you read my previous New in Skincare post then you will know I have been struggling with my skin lately.

Their is a huge range of sponges to choose from to suit everyone:


Konjac Sponge - Dry


When I first opened the packet I was expecting it to be like a normal springy sponge but it was actually totally solid, almost looking like coal in appearance. Once wet it then becomes a sponge, expanding to about half the size and it is honestly the weirdest but most pleasing sensation ever on the skin!

Very soft to touch and feels super gentle on the skin but still giving a light exfoliation without feeling really harsh or sore which sometimes can be the case for me and 100% leaves the skin feeling clean and soft.



Konjac Sponge - Wet


Like I mentioned before this is completely natural so I feel confident that my skin is getting all the goodness it needs and drawing out all the impurities, banishing blackheads and tackling stubborn spots without feeding my skin loads of bad chemicals and toxins.

Bamboo is a natural antibacterial and antifungal ingredient and is the key ingredient in this sponge so works really well to get deep into the skin and remove any of the left over dirt and grime.

You can use this just on its own which is what I have been doing to really test the claims or you can use it along with your facial cleanser for a more deeper cleanse. I have started to use this to remove face masks though and I have really been enjoying this method, I feel like my skin is getting a super deep cleanse.

The sponge has a flat side and a round side, I prefer to use the flat side to cover more surface area but the rounded side is good for reaching the contours of the face. There is also some string attached to the sponge so you can hang it up and allow to air dry.





There is no denying that this cleans my skin so well and leaves my skin feel really soft and radiant but sadly I see no difference in my blemishes, which is what I was hoping for. All my spots are still the same and hasn't reduced in size or redness but at the same time it isn't breaking me out more which is important for me in skincare.

I will continue to use this but will use it with a cleanser to see if that makes any difference to my skin and I will report back to give my verdict!

All in all I really like this sponge and feel it does a great job of keeping my skin feeling healthy. There is such a huge range to chose from and would recommend giving this brand a try and I hope it works for you.

 
I hope you enjoyed this review, let me know your thoughts if you have ever tried Konjac sponges!
