I actually haven’t heard of the konjac sponge company until the little event with Polhem a week or so ago. In my goodie bag was their Pink Heart Face Sponge that I got the opportunity to try.
I absolutely love konjac sponges and have used my fair share of them. If you don’t know much I got a few little tidbits to share about these friendly facial cleanser sponges.
The konjac sponge is a porous root veggie that is extremely popular in Asia and have gained popularity around the world. As it is a root veggie, I suggest keeping them maximum a month. They are super gentle but do exfoliate (also depending on what type of konjac sponge). Due to the exfoliation they contribute to radiance but I can say that if you’re looking for that extra glow, this sponge will disappoint!
In addition, I do know there are sponges that contain charcoal said to be good for acne but I personally don’t think that this is the solution to such skin problems. They are ideal on all skin types but work well on sensitive, dry and even rosacea affected skins. You can take your makeup off with this product just by water and any cleanser.
So. The Pink Heart sponge from Konjac Sponge Company is a french pink clay sponge that is awesome for reviving tired skin (Pink clay is known for caring for irritated skin). According to the company the sponge itself is 100% pure konjac from volcanic plains of UNESCO protected jeju Island which is located in South Korea. The sponge is 100% biodegradable & fully sustainable.
I did not notice much of a difference the first week of use, but the more I used it, the easier it was to take off my makeup but also get rid of the flakey skin I’ve been battling around my nose & nose piercing.
Do you use Konjac Sponges? If so which ones have you tried?
