When it comes to deep facial cleansing, sponges might not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, a Konjac sponge is a super gentle sponge made from the Japanese konjac (a porous vegetable that grows in Asia) that exfoliates dead or dry skin and stimulates blood circulation to promote cell turnover. This slightly under-the-radar sponge will take the place of your mechanical cleansing brushes and removes dirt, grime and makeup swiftly all while leaving you with a smoother complexion.
A great one to try is the Truly Organic Green Tea Konjac Sponge. Great on all skin types, konjac sponges are superb for especially sensitive and acne prone skin as their gentle buffing action won’t irritate delicate skin and can be used for daily exfoliation.
Easy to use, simply soften the sponge by soaking in warm water for 3-5 minutes, then massage your face and/or body in a circular motion with or without cleansing soap. After use, rinse and let dry thoroughly in a cool place for the next use.
Users say the sponge is light and gentle on the skin, and easy to add into their routine. Truly Organic also makes a konjac sponge with charcoal and bamboo, and one with rosewater and witch hazel to balance out skin.
