Next week, the Konjac Sponge Company will be opening a pop-up shop in central London.
If you remember, a year or so ago, I had a sponge-crazy phase, of which the Konjac Sponge was a part of so I'm quite excited to see what I make of it, and have it back in my routine since my vision of what skincare has changed a lot since then!
The Konjac Sponge is a sponge made of a root vegetable from Japan (which by the way is super yummy and healthy!), and is steamed and baked into these cute little sponges. Each sponge has mixed in a different ingredient, so they're made for all different skintypes. The one you see above is the one I had, the green clay one for normal to oily skin. There are also a few others:
Bamboo Charcoal: for oily/acne-prone skin
French Red Clay: for dry/sensitive skin
French Green Clay: for normal/oily skin
French Pink Clay: for tired/devitalised skin
The thing that sets the sponges apart is that it's so soft and gentle, yet it also exfoliates which means you can use it under your eyes and also without a cleanser. It also has a massaging effect that drains the excess fluid that may cause puffiness.
For the eco-warriors out there, the sponge is also completely biodegradable and can be buried in the ground after it's had its use!
Curious? Be sure to attend the Konjac Sponge Company's pop-up shop in London, where you can talk to specialists and pick up a sponge of your own.
