Product: Konjac Sponge with French Red Clay for Dry + Sensitive Skin
Ingredients: 100% Konjac Sponge with French Red Clay
Thoughts: For the past few weeks, I have been using my Konjac sponge with just warm water (no cleansers at all!) to wash my face day and night. The sponge is super soft when wet and you can see it becomes much bigger when fully saturated with water.
I chose the red sponge in particular because it has red clay for dry and sensitive skin. After using this sponge, my face is noticeably softer and my face feels absolutely amazing when I follow it up with a luxurious and hydrating facial balm like Badger’s Damascus Rose Beauty Balm.
As for its performance, I think it holds up really well as a product for gentle, daily exfoliation. The Konjac Sponge is not for intense exfoliation at all. Its soft and plushy body won’t let you do much rigorous scrubbing (believe me, I tried!). Another thing to note, the sponge must be replaced at least 3-4 months for a newer sponge and the time frame depends on how well you sanitize your sponge. I make sure to gently rinse it in slightly warmer water after using it on my face and hang it dry near my radiator. The brand that makes the sponge, cautions against hanging it anywhere in your bathroom. I agree, don’t hang your sponge in the bathroom! Think of all the bacteria that could get into your sponge..eurgh!
The Konjac Sponge with French Red Clay is a great sponge that will help you in your daily washing regime! I really liked my sponge and I will try to repurchase it when it needs to be swapped out for a newer sponge in 3-4 months. The Sponge is perfect for someone who needs a little bit of help or even excitement in washing their face. It’s affordable compared to the Clarisonic and it’s biodegradable too!
