I’ve spoken about the Konjac Sponges before after being recommended them by Kenneth Soh and Nic of Strawberry Blonde, are you also spotting a trend of those two being veryÂ influentialÂ over me? It’s because they are both ace.
Anyway, I’ve been lucky enough to meet the lady behind the Konjac Sponge Company on manyÂ occasions, she is lovely, enthusiastic, friendly and mega knowledgeable. I thought it was about time that I wrote up about this very strange product again, as it really is amazing.
So, what is a Konjac Sponge? These sponges are derived from the Konjac Potato, which originates from Asia, where they have been part of the Asian diet for thousands of years, they have also been used for cosmetic purposes for almost as long! This odd natural product is rich in folic acid, protein, carbohydrate, iron, phosphorus, copper, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin D, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12 and vitamin C. So, why wouldn’t you want to give this beauty a go?
These sponges are packed full of amazing ingredients and come in a wide variety to suit different skin types or complaints. Last year, I used the Pink French Clay Konjac Sponge designed to revitalise dull skin. This month I will be using the Konjac Sponge with added Green French Clay, which helps tackle oily or problem skin. Since, I’ve struggled with stops lately, this is perfect.
The great thing about these little face cupcakes is that you don’t have to use products with them to feel the benefit, because they are already packed full of lovely ingredients. The texture of the sponge gently exfoliates and feeds the skin. It’s beautifully soft to use and leaves skin feeling gorgeous.
Each Konjac Sponge is good for a few months if you take care of it, after use you wringe it out and hang it up to keep it in good condition. You can tell when it’s time to move on to a fresh one because it will start to look tired. The Konjac Sponges are fullyÂ biodegradable, sustainable, natural and absolutely beautiful.
The facial sponges retail at Â£5.99 and you can also buy body sponges for Â£9.25. Check out their website to find out more.
Have you tried Konjac Sponges? What do you think?
