Review: Konjac Cleansing Sponge

Konjac Cleansing Sponge is my little gentle scrubbing buddy. I got this in my recent haul in Landmark. I just want to try this product so I chose the cheapest one available (it's the smallest one too). This is quite new for me actually, it is a very popular cleansing sponge in Korea and South East Asia but I just recently heard about it. 

So what is a Konjac Sponge?
An all natural sponge made from konjac roots (vegetable fiber) with extra fine texture. It is used for skin cleansing.

Cleans pores eliminating blackheads, dirt and oil.
Kills acne/pimple causing bacteria.
Moisturizes your skin upon use.
Exfoliates your skin to bring out natural shine.
Balances the pH of your skin.
Ideal for people with hypersensitive skin.

My Experience: 
It is like a hard pumice stone at first. Instruction says to soak the konjac sponge in water for 3-5 minutes for the initial use. This is being done to soften the product and to transform it to super soft sponge! Massage your face or body with sponge in circling direction: I use this alone or with my facial wash/soap.The konjac sponge I have is the same size of my plushie's head below:

About the same size of the head of my little plushie CJ7.

I like that it is really gentle but I can't attest to it's eliminating blackheads, killing acne/pimple causing property because I think it's too much to ask for a small cleansing sponge. I still get them even I use this sponge, but I really don't mind. I had the chance to use this when my face was micro peeling but it didn't fully helped in exfoliating, maybe because of the fact that it was indeed gentle and soft. However if you'll ask if it made a difference on my skin, then yes. It somehow made my skin look brighter and I highly recommend it to hypersensitive skin because it is an oh-so-natural product.

Where to buy: Landmark

How much: Less than P30 for the smallest konjac sponge

What I love 
  • It's a super gentle cleansing sponge
  • Affordable
  • Brightens up skin with continuous use

What I don't
  •  None
Will I buy again?
I really think I should repurchase, maybe after it is worn out? Around 3 months or so. I dunno. But I do recommend this product if you have ultra sensitive skin, I believe this should work on you. :)

Hope you like my review, see you on my next post!
