With an almost web-like structure, the Konjac sponge is perfect for encouraging and stimulating blood flow by massaging the skin. Its also fab at removing make-up and the daily dirt build-up for a glowing, radiant complexion. The infusion of aloe vera means this konjac sponge is particularly good for those that occasionally have break outs of spots, guys with beards or those with oily to combination skin types.
So, what is a Konjac sponge?
The Japanese have long been at the cutting-edge of skincare & the Konjac plant has been a vital part of their diet, skincare and medicine for centuries.
Despite its name, it’s not at all like the sponge you keep on your kitchen sink. It’s a sponge that’s made from the root of a Konjac plant (a porous vegetable that grows in Asia), which is why it feels almost rubbery once it gets wet. It’s 100-percent natural and plant-based.
How It Works
Konjac sponges don’t have any magical ingredients that turn your skin into a shiny little pearl, but that’s not really the point of them—they’re meant to be used as an incredibly gentle exfoliator that’s safe on virtually all skin types (though anyone with rosacea or perioral dermatitis should still consult their dermatologist, first).
How do you use a Konjac sponge?
Our Konjac sponge is dry and hard. To use it, soak the sponge for 5–10 minutes until it expands and fully softens, then squeeze out the excess water right before you use it.
Once your sponge is ready, drizzle face wash over the sponge and gently massage your face in circular motions until your skin is clean and your makeup is removed. If you don’t like the idea of really buffing your cleanser into your skin, you can always rub it over your damp skin after cleansing it to pick up excess skin cells. Then rinse out the sponge and hang it (or stand it up) to air-dry overnight.
