IMG_5572I bought this Facial sponge from the Ajali store launch. I sincerely had never heard of a Konjac sponge till I saw it on the store’s Instagram page. I decided to do my research on what it was.

A konjac sponge is a soft cleansing sponge for the face or body . It’s made of 100% organic materials including minerals, green tea and vegetable fibre. The sponge acts as a gentle exfoliator, rubbing off dead skin cells in the most delicate manner, though the irony is that the sponge comes really hard at first….almost like a pumice stone. But when you soak it in water it softens up.

The instructions on the pack says to use with or without a cleanser, but I’m one of those people who without a soapy-lather I don’t feel squeaky clean. I decided to use mine with a face wash. The product claims to take off makeup well but I haven’t tried that. I often clean my face with wipes before I step into the shower.

When I used this sponge I sincerely loved the way it rubbed against my skin. Very gentle and Soft. I went in circular motions rinsing off with warm water. When done, I squeezed out the water and hung it to dry for my next use.IMG_5598


The two intertwined cons/negatives about this product is the price and the shelf life. The sponge is anti-bacterial but not self-cleansing so you’re advised to replace it after a month.

I bought this sponge for about N2,000(BUY HERE) which to me is quite high knowing that it would be a recurring expense. So I’m not sure if I can commit to buying this every month. However, by the end of December If the results are amazing and incomparable to my daily exfoliators, it would become a staple in my bath regimen.


Dry state after use. It remains soft.

So far, I’m happy about this purchase because I’d been silently complaining about my existing exfoliating facial brush. It was getting a bit to harsh for me.


I hope my review was detailed and would help you in making a decision on your purchase.

Do let me know what you think about a Konjac sponge. Would love to hear from you.
