As you’ve may have noticed here on COPD I pretty much blog about stuff that I like and don’t really follow any trends as such. However when I see a bazillion blog posts about how great a product is, especially if it’s unusual and skincare related, I’m going to get my little mitts on it!
I was delighted when I found out that there were several choices of sponge to choose from, so I chose the french green clay and bamboo charcoal due to my oily complexion. I ordered them directly from the Konjac Sponge website and they came pretty quickly. My french green clay sponge came with me to the US and I’ve using it in total for about 5 -6 weeks. I have to say that either I don’t know how to use it, or it just does nothing for me.
Konjac is reputed for its health giving properties & used by the Japanese for over 1500 years, having originally been used as a medicine in the sixth century

A naturally moisture rich plant fibre which is by nature alkaline, and thus balances the acidity of the skins impurities and oils.
The unique net like structure of the sponge, gently massages the skin and stimulates blood flow and new growth of skin cells. Leaving the skin extremely clean and refreshed…..naturally! No need for additional cleansers or soaps unless you really want. Should you chose to use additional cleansers or soap, you can use a fraction of your usual amount, as the sponge will generate more bubbles and spread the cleaner further than usual. Better for your skin, better on the environment and your finances!
Yes it does feel different than other sponges, and you don’t need as much product to wash your face. However my skin doesn’t feel any softer or smoother for using it and as for the infusion of french clay I can’t see that it makes much of a difference. I’m also a bit dubious about the little string that is meant to hold the sponge especially when it’s wet. I can see eventually gravity will take its toll and the string will cut through the sponge or just become really manky. Now I haven’t used my charcoal one yet and maybe that one will reap more benefits so I’ll let you know.
In the meantime I’ve seen a more positive video review of the Konjac Sponge from katieandsophiebeauty YouTube channel that you should check out!
