Review: The Konjac Sponge


Hello~~.....,I have never seen anything like this sponge before (have you?!) !and after i have used it ...i fall in love with konjac product,ehmm... you might be thinking what is  Konjac sponge??...
Konjac is a healthy traditional Japanese food made of a type of tuber . In japan the Konjac sponge has been used for its medicinal properties for over 1500 years. For over a century the japanese people have been using the Konjac vegetable as a beauty treatment for their delicate skin.

How does the sponge work?
"The Konjac Sponge gently cleanses and soothes the skin by removing dirt and oil, naturally restoring the pH level of the skin. Cleansing helps to stimulate blood flow and encourage new skin cells, revitalising the complexion without damaging the skin.

The Konjac sponge is highly absorbent in both water and oils and is excellent for thorough cleansing of impurities. The pH level of the sponge is an alkaline and has the function to break down dirt and neutralizes acidic and oily areas."

 The packaging is only in a plastic wrap. Then, on the back of the packaging there's an explanation about the sponge.
Before the sponge is saturated with water, the texture of the konjac is hard, as shown on the picture below, (anyways, it has a string to make it easy for us to hang up the sponge). After the sponge is saturated with water, the texture of the konjac becomes soft. After it is used on the face, it gives a smooth feeling. So far, I like this product.



How to use: Rinse the sponge before use. Use the sponge in a circular motion on the face. When finished rinse the sponge and hang it to dry. You can use this with a cleanser that you have.When I am finished using the sponge, I rinse it out and hang it up to dry using the little string attached to the sponge. That way it does not gather any bacteria between uses.

  2. Never really try it but it is interesting, especially in a time where clairsonic has been a hit for facial cleaning tool. This is like a cheaper version.
