Boy oh boy, do I have a skin HACK to share with you today. Let me introduce you to my trusty new skincare fave– the konjac sponge. This post is specifically for my beauties on a budget who love to prioritize skin and skincare habits. I first tried a konjac sponge about 6 months ago when my friend who owns a health food store gave one to me. She literally put one in my purse and wouldn’t let me pay for it– insisting that I needed to try it. Mind you, they are very inexpensive ($10), so I would have bought one anyway! After trying this little miracle sponge for months at a time, I knew I needed to bring it to the blog and let the secret OUT.
What exactly is a konjac sponge?
“The Japanese Konjac Sponge is a 100% natural facial and body cleansing sponge made from vegetable fibers of Konjac (Konnyaku). … This 100% natural sponge has a soft texture making it gentle, safe and will not scratch skin while washing away dirt and oil from skin.” Essentially, you use it in the shower or sink with your cleanser to wash your face. I have explained it to friends and family members as the “alternative to a skincare brush, like this one. However, you are saving about $190 dollars by using this little miracle sponge to wash that beautiful face.
