Do you ever come over across beauty products and think, “is this worth the hype”? That’s what happened to me when I first discovered konjac sponges-through YouTube of course ,those darn beauty bloggers really know how to get me hooked lol ( Relax its Banter ).
I’m a bit of a sucker for amazing skincare accessories that promise to do my laundry,pay may taxes and spray me with pixie dust ,I won’t lie I had second thoughts. I didn’t know anything about this mysterious sponge but I have been amused and impressed with the new wave of Japanese products flooding the beauty industry.
So you might be wondering “What in heavens name is a Konjac Sponge ?”.
The Konjac Potato or Konnyaku is a perennial plant native to Asia, and can be found growing wild at very high altitudes. A totally natural food source, Konjac is 97% water, rich in mineral goodness and low in calories. Naturally alkaline, Konjac is pH neutral which leaves skin perfectly balanced.
PURE AND POLLUTANT FREE
Konjac sponges are free from chemicals, colouring, additives and irritants. 100% biodegradable and fully sustainable, this moisture rich plant fibre is mixed and handmade with natural water filtered through volcanic rock.
USED FOR OVER 1,500 YEARS
First discovered in the Indochinese region, Konnyaku has been used in Korea, Japan and China for over 1,500 as medicine, food, a dieting aid and as a beauty product. Highly prized for its health giving properties the Konjac Sponge was originally created for delicate baby skin.
After reading about all these beautiful things,i went on to my favourite site for decent natural and free from skincare and stumbled across a brand called beauty kitchen which offers konjac sponges at an excellent price.
I was so happy to see Beauty Kitchen bringing out their own konjac sponge. These come wet, so you can see/feel just how soft they will be on your skin. All you have to do is wet the sponge in warm water and use by itself, or alongside your cleanser. The sponge is great at getting rid of make-up, although it can be difficult to get into the inner corner of the eye. But as the sponge is flexible you’ll soon figure out how to get around this problem. After use, the sponge needs a little rinse under water, and then you can hang it to dry( it comes with a handy little string ). It shrinks once dry, which means it’s easy to transport, and all it needs is to be run under or soaked in water for your next use.
