I’ve tried something similar to The Konjac Sponge Company before but I don’t think I’ve tried this actually company, so I was rather excited when they said they wanted to send me a wonderful bundle to help kick off the year with a health kick for my skin. The bundle included skincare from Bryt, 7th Heaven and Vito Coco Water which were lovely additions! Most people always make the resolution to look after their skin and bodies more, but it is rather difficult to stick too, well, unless you’re a beauty blogger as I’m drowning in skincare at the minute but after a major cold, I seriously need it!
If you’ve never heard of The Konjac Sponge Company before, they produce natural vegetable fibre sponges that are as hard as a rock, until you add water and they soften to be cleansing and exfoliating sponges. They’re available in Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, M&S as well as over 60 countries worldwide, so it’s obvious that they’re definitely making an impression and selling incredibly well.
I don’t quite understand how they can stay sanitary, but obviously you don’t go washing your makeup off with these as they definitely won’t last as long as the recommend 2-3 months. Although now they do actually sell an eye cleansing sponge….
I wasn’t convinced, most of you who have been here for a while now know that I will call out ridiculous claims but The Konjac Sponge Company seem fully prepared for this with the information on their website. The Konjac Potato usually grows in the wild at very high altitudes and it’s a totally natural food source which is 97% water. Konjac is pH neutral which leaves skin perfectly balanced, other benefits include that being a vegetable it’s packed with mineral and anti-oxidants, earth friendly, cruelty free and it’s actually 100% biodegradable and you certainly can’t say that about 99% of other products on the market.
It definitely works to make your skin feel softer, less bumpy and overall look clean, but I do find that I bin and replace mine after a month and I only use it the odd times a week. I love the idea behind it, but it’s just not something I can fully get behind….I need more convincing!
