Natural Facial Cleansing Konjac Sponge, Green Tea, Bamboo Charcoal Review

What is a Natural Konjac Sponge?

The Konjac facial cleansing sponges are 100% natural plant-based fiber. Konjac sponges are an alkaline perennial plant rich in minerals and are 97% water. These natural sponges are biodegradable, free of chemicals and additives. They come in round, teardrop, heart or square. The larger ones work well for bodies as smaller do well for the face.

Did you know that Konjac has other benefits and uses? Used in Chinese medicines for detoxification, tumor-suppression, an Asian jelly snack, a Japanese noodle, a dietary fiber for weight-loss and lean muscle mass, a vegan seafood alternative and much more.

They are characterized by specific types such as:

How to use a Natural Cleansing Konjac Sponge

Konjac sponges are packaged moist. Use 1-2 times daily as a gentle exfoliant to gently removes dirt, oil, and dead skin cells.  The soft texture is perfect for dry or sensitive skin and is great for all skin types.

How to use a Natural Cleansing Konjac Sponge
  1. Moist when unpackaged or from dry when hung.
  2. Soak the sponge in warm water.
  3. Gently press out excessive moisture
  4. Add cleanser of your choice. Works well with any cleanser or no cleanser if preferred.
  5. Lather and massage in circular/side to side motion to face and or body.
  6. Rince sponge well with warm water by gently squeezing a few times to remove soap residue. Do not wring or twist them as it will ruin the fibers.
  7. Hang to dry by using the string attached.

To sterilize or deep clean your sponge

Konjac cleansing sponges can be sterilized by boiling in hot water for a short time(30 seconds) let sit for 1 min or to use a microwave for 1 minute as well. This may shorten the life of your sponge but may be necessary if used by clients or multiple family members.

How long do Konjac Sponges last?

Replace sponge every 1-3 months.  4-6 weeks is an average life if used daily.

My conclusion:

I really like these sponges. I use my Green Tea sponge in the morning with a gentle cleanser and the charcoal sponge at night with a cleanser with activated charcoal in it. At 54 I still have acne prone skin and although I found my skin softer and brighter my acne at the present time is still an issue after 2 weeks of use. It may improve in time with further use. I absolutely love how it removes makeup. Do I think that the sponge types make a difference? Not really, I think that is a bit for hype purposes. The sponge itself is where the significant product is. It is one of the gentlest natural sponges I have ever used. I highly recommend them and I believe any brand will do the trick. Not one is necessarily better than the other. Prices range from $8 – $13 each so whichever one you choose I can assure you will love them.
