Konjac sponges- good or bad?

IMG_5390

A few weeks ago I saw blog where someone reviewed a heart shaped Konjac sponge. Now let me start off by saying I had no clue what that was and the fact that it was a heart was why it caught my eye. I’m pretty much a magpie for such girly things. So I clicked on the blog and read the review, they talked about how their skin was luminous and felt so soft. It really piqued my interest as I was due to run out of my current face cleanser and I’m always open to trying new things so I thought “why not?”

I went onto Amazon and the first thing I noticed was how many different choices there were. Different shapes and sizes. Different colours and different scents. It took me a while to read through all of the descriptions and see what was best for my type of skin. I have combination skin which is fairly good. I have a few dryer or oilier patches but nothing crazy. I do have bad pores and black heads though so I decided to go for the one that tackled those. That was the lavender one, it promised to help minimise pores and reduce blackheads whilst fighting off dirt. It also boasts that it will neutralise your skin ph.

They were around £5 each or 2 for £7.50 and the deal seeker in me grabbed 2. I was so excited to try these and I was a little worried they wouldn’t be as good as I hoped. After all it’s only a sponge right? How can that make THAT big of a difference to my skin?

So it arrived and it was almost flat packed Into it’s little packaging. It felt hard and scratchy like a loofa. I was pretty skeptical how this crunchy ball would help my problem areas but I tried to keep a open mind.
The instructions tell you to soak it in warm water for around 5 minutes. After that it was big and squishy. It felt more like I expected for sure. It was super soft and had tiny little holes. You are supposed to ring it out and then rub in small circles over your skin. It feels so bloody lovely! Honestly I can’t explain how rubbing a sponge over your face can feel relaxing and nice but it does! I actually look forward to that part of my cleansing routine because of it!
You can feel it gently exfoliating and it has made my lips a little sore as I didn’t think about what it was doing to them, so now I tend to keep them out of the way whilst I cleanse. They only need to be done every few days to have a good effect.

After you have finished using your sponge it tells you to rinse, ring and hand up somewhere warm and dry. The sponge does has a little string to hang it up attached. Then it will dry out and you will need to soak it again when you next use it.

Now for the part where I have to be honest with the results. It’s so freaking awesome! Like seriously amazing. I cannot express how much difference it’s made to my skin in such a short amount of time! My dry and oily patches are now a thing of the past! My pores and black heads are heading out of the door! My marks and blemishes are outta here!
It’s remarkable! I didn’t think a sponge would exfoliate, buff, remove marks and be natural! I’m hooked! I want to try one with clay as they seem great. They lather up and clean your face!

So I would without a doubt completely recommend this sponge! It’s made me super happy and I want to shout it from the rooftop!
