REVIEW: KONJAC FACE SPONGE
I 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.
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.
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.
