The Konjac Sponge Co. - Christmas Edition!

I was recently sent this amazing Christmas-y package from The Konjac Sponge Co. Inside were three packages - all wrapped ready for Christmas! 

What did I receive?

The Mini Konjac Christmas Blitzen Sponge (limited edition) - a pure blend of the finest konjac and powerful charcoal powder which helps draw out stubborn bacteria and oils that can cause inconvenient spots.

The Mini Konjac Christmas Rudolf Sponge (limited edition) - a pure blend of the finest konjac and powerful red French clay which helps dry and damaged skin, and is even suitable for those suffering from Eczema, Rosacea or Psoriasis.

and finally, The Pure Konjac Face Mouse Spongegives a thorough all over face cleanse. Ideal for the young newly learning and mastering skin care. 100% pure Konjac vegetable fibre helps cleanse and refine the skin, keeping it in healthy condition. 

As you can see from the photos above the Christmas limited edition packaging is super cute - perfect stocking fillers! 

I had never heard of this product before, so what is a 'konjac sponge'?

The Japanese Konjac Sponge is a 100% natural facial and body cleansing sponge made from vegetable fibers of Konjac(Konnyaku). The Konjac Sponge has been used in Japan first as a bath sponge for newborn babies for more than 100 years because of its soft texture.

  • Refines Pores
  • Ideal for dry or mature skin
  • pH balancing
  • Gently Exfoliates
  • Deeply Cleanses
  • Cleanses and Exfoliates the Delicate Eye Area
  • Use With or Without Cleanser
  • Suitable for Sensitive Skin
  • 100% Natural, Colouring & Additive Free
  • Silky Soft When Wet

Now, as you may know I am a sucker for trying out new things that will help my skin, so I was really excited to give these a go. Anything 100% natural and cruelty free is already a winner in my eyes - it is free from chemicals, colouring, additives and irritants - perfect for my combination skin that breaks out quite easily.

When you first open the package and feel the sponge it is rock hard like a stone - I leave it under a hot running tap for a few minutes and the sponge starts to soak up the water, turning in to this squishy, soft ball. 

I remove my make up using my trusty micellar water, then I use the sponge to exfoliate and cleanse while also removing any left over makeup. It feels so soft on my skin, it is really gentle which I love as a lot of products I have tried can irritate the skin and leave it looking red and blotchy. These little sponges are the perfect size for getting deep into the area around my nose, targeting those seriously annoying pores that a lot of us suffer from.

You can use your own cleansing products with the sponge but I don't feel this is necessary as the sponge seems to be doing a great job all by itself! I gave my mother the larger sponge and she has been raving that her skin feels like silk.

There is a wide range of products on the website so there is something to suit all skin types - including a Konjac Tattoo Sponge which gently cleanses the area of a new tattoo without causing irritation - pretty cool :-)

You can purchase these straight from the website and I did spot a few in TK Maxx yesterday!

I will continue to use these every morning and evening as I find it is quick and easy way to exfoliate & cleanse without the fuss.

Have you tried a product from this brand? Let me know what you think!
