Konjac Sponge Review + Giveaway

Konjac Sponge Review + Giveaway

Retail: $14.99

Konjac fiber facial sponges are extremely popular and have been a beauty secret in Asian cultures for decades.  This luxuriously soft sponge gently exfoliates, cleanses, is naturally pH balanced, promotes circulation, absorbs toxins and fights bacteria while leaving your face glowing and refreshed.  

The Lalune Naturals Konjac Sponge gently exfoliates your skin and reveals a smoother texture and brighter looking skin. The natural konjac fibers massage away impurities and toxins in your skin.  Brighter, smoother looking skin begins with our gentle exfoliating sponge that contains the essential minerals. When using our sponge you'll see fewer blackheads and breakouts. 

What is the Konjac Sponge?

Well, to start, it might be interesting to know that konjac actually comes from a potato-like plant in Asia that is both cultivated and grows wild at high altitudes. The Japanese have used Konjac for over 1500 years as a food source and over the last century have been using the Konjac potato as a beauty treatment. The Konjac sponge has been handmade from the vegetable fibre of this plant along with French clays and some contain pure charcoal from bamboo. As a result, the Konjac sponge is extremely gentle and 100% biodegradable – you can compost it when it’s time for a new one.

 What Does the Konjac Sponge Do?

The Konjac sponge is an extremely gentle cleanser for both face and body. I have two separate sponges, one for my body and one for my face. The sponge acts as a gentle exfoliator, rubbing off dead skin cells in the most delicate manner. The extra soft texture means that its ok for anyone to use, babies included. While this won’t replace your makeup remover (eye makeup more specifically) it can gently take off much of your face makeup in a matter of minutes.

How Do I Use the Konjac Sponge?

When you pick up your sponge it will be dry and hard. You will need to wet it under warm water until it’s completely soaked through and soft. Once it is wet and puffy, simply use either side in a circular motion around your face to exfoliate and remove dirt and grime. This circular massaging will stimulate tired skin & encourage skin renewal – and we can all use a bit of that!  Also, the sponge has a special flower design cut-out to hold your soap while cleansing. 

 Once you are finished with your sponge, squeeze it between your hands to get the water out – never wring out your sponge, this will deteriorate the fibers and cause its life to end a lot shorter than necessary.  

The konjac sponge is made from the sustainable konjac plant, and is free of chemicals, parabens, sulphates and is biodegradable. La Lune Naturals sponge is cruelty-free and vegan.  You can purchase Lalune Konjac sponges on Amazon.
