My Experience with My Konjac Sponge:
After hearing great reviews about Konjac sponges, I decided to get this sponge for my husband. This review will be on his thoughts of this product and also some of my thought regarding what difference I saw in his skin.
My husband’s skin is very oily and acne prone. He has a big pore which tends to easily attract blackheads and whiteheads. Being a typical guy, he won’t let me do steam and extractions on him like I do on myself every once in a while. So, I needed something for him which he could use on a regular basis which would help keep his skin issues under control, and then I came across this product.
This product comes in many different variations, namely White version for all skin types, Green version with French clay for oily/combination skin, Pink version with French pink clay for Dry skin, Red version with volcanic scoria for dry, sensitive, mature skin and lastly the version I have which is the Black with bamboo charcoal for oily, acne-prone skin.
This sponge claims to made from 100% pure Konjac plant root with added Natural Bamboo Charcoal, which contains activated carbon, various minerals, and natural antioxidant ingredient that help fighting hard-to-reach acne-causing bacteria.
The sponge is shaped like a tear drop, which is very good as the pointy end helps reach small areas, like around the nose and chin efficiently. It also has a thread so that we can hang it to dry.
The sponge is a bit hard when it is new and takes a while to absorb water and get soft, but after a few uses, it becomes much easier to use. The sponge increases in size when wet and gets really soft and pliable hence it is not at all scratchy on the face and provides mild exfoliation. You can use it with any face cleaner. Washing your face with this sponge also helps control the usage of your cleanser. You need just a few drops for it to produce ton of lather as opposed to using a lot when you just use it with your hands to wash your face.
Even though this is a very soft sponge, you do need to be careful not to overuse it. My husband was using this 3 times a day, basically every time he washed his face and he started to see his skin getting irritated and red which is when he cut down the use to once a day and that worked wonders for his skin.
He and I both really saw a difference in his skin, he got lesser breakouts. His face stayed shine free longer and his blackheads on the nose got under control, though they did not disappear overnight. His skin started getting better and better with each use and felt smooth, softer and clearer.
This sponge feels very high quality. It did not start to smell bad after a few uses. It is recommended to replace the sponge every three months.
Overall, my husband really enjoys using this and it did give positive results for his skin. This one-step easy method is quite useful for some of us who are lazy with their skin care. He most definitely recommends this.
