|Konjac Puff Sponge, The Konjac Sponge Co|
I saw the Konjac Puff Sponge doing it’s rounds across blogs back in 2013 so I think I’m a bit late on this bandwagon. Needless to say I was swayed by all the positive reviews so on a trip to London in November I made the inevitable purchase.
The Konjac Puff Sponge can be used as with water on it’s own or with your regular face wash/cleanser. Having had several months to experiment, my favourite method is to use my sponge after cleansing my face in my regular way then soaking it in cold water and using it to close my pores. I think it works a treat. My face feels tighter (in a good way) when I use my konjac sponge after cleansing compared to when I just use a muslin cloth. My sponge has lasted ages too! Only recently has it started to look a bit worn out and sorry for itself considering I purchased it 8 months ago. I reckon I’ve got at least a couple more months of use out of this one yet.
The range The Konjac Sponge Co offers in unbelievable! Sports sponges, body sponges even doggy sponges!!! I will definitely be buying Pepé a doggy sponge to gently wipe his eyes. A sponge to suit all your spongey needs and desires. Sponge sponge sponge. Weird word… Anyway. I brought the 100% konjac facial sponge but you can also get enriched sponges for certain skin conditions such as a bamboo charchol one for oily and achne prone skin. I will be buying the French pink clay enriched one next for dehydrated skin.
I’ve since done a bit of research on konjac and it really is an amazingly versatile plant. A popular food in Asia, a weight loss supplement as it is very high in fibre, you can buy calorie-free ‘noodles’ made out of it, the root powder is used as flavouring for vegan fish-style products and konjac is also a gelatin substitute! Amazing.
Do you own a konjac sponge? Have any of your spongey dreams come true?
