Review: My Konjac Sponge Re-packaged

1:51:00 AM

For you who didn't know, konjac sponge is a very popular cleansing sponge in Korea and South East Asia. It is made of natural fibres from the root of a plant called Konjac or Konnyaku, a plant native to Asia region. There's a research in Japan that has proven that these Konjac sponges can deeply cleanse without damaging the skin and are better than any normal wash cloth or wash sponges.

The first konjac sponge I've tried from My Konjac Sponge was the Water Drop Volcanic Stone Facial Sponge which I used several months ago. It's a pink-ish sponge suitable for dull looking skin. After 3 months of usage I found that it's really suitable for my oily-combination skin, it thoroughly cleans my face and it's so practical to use and gave great results.

This time I got the chance to try different types of sponges from My Konjac Sponge: the Water Drop Bamboo Charcoal which is suitable for oily skin that tends to get blackheads, spots and breakouts; and the 6 Wave Sponge which is the body sponge version:


As I mentioned on the title of this post, My Konjac Sponge now has a new packaging, complete with a simple instruction at the back, so for those of you first timers you won't get confused on how to properly use the konjac sponge.

Don't be alarmed if you buy a konjac sponge from My Konjac and then you find that the sponge inside is very damp. That's just how it is, because when left dry a konjac sponge can harden like a stone. That's why it must be soaked first with water before every use.


I actually like this new packaging better. It's more sleek and very interesting to look at. I also love the clear how-to instruction at the back that comes with cute graphics ;p

Okay, after seeing the new packaging above, now let's talk about the Water Drop Bamboo Charcoal Sponge first.

The Water Drop Bamboo Charcoal one is a black colored sponge and it is enriched with charcoal extracted from the best bamboos in Korea. According to the website this sponge is also effective for cleansing and eliminating blackheads around the T-zone. This sponge is also perfect for those who are active and spend good amount of time outside having to deal with dusts and dirt that could clog your pores if not cleansed properly.

 

My skin is combination oily and after using this particular konjac sponge for a few weeks I personally think that this bamboo charcoal one is really suitable for my skin type.

After trying the Volcanic Stone and then using this Charcoal one I'd say that both konjac sponges suits my combination oily skin, but at the moment I would prefer the charcoal one because right now my skin is more oily than dry, and using this regularly has helped me a lot with my complexion, making it look brighter, cleaner, and more radiant.

It also helps a lot with my blemishes, and keep the oil at bay. So far, I am loving it and been using it regularly, sometimes I used it with my face wash and sometimes I just use the sponge by itself.

the back of the packaging:

As you can see from the back of the packaging above, using konjac sponges to clean your face has many benefits such as cleanses the skin pores, exfoliates skin, promotes cell growth, eliminates blackheads, prevents acne, etc..

Konjac Sponges is also well known for it's natural properties and for it's soft and gentle sponge that's very effective for cleansing. I have fallen in love with it since the first time I've tried it. It's very simple to use and it only took a few minutes for me to thoroughly cleanse my face in the morning or at night before I go to bed.

These konjac sponges can either be used alone or with a facial soap / cleanser. Either ways would bring great results to the skin.



Okay, now let's talk about the 6 Wave Sponge which is a body sponge..

If you have dry skin or just want to refresh your body by sloughing off dead skin cells then this is the tool for you. It is the equivalent of body scrubs and exfoliants but without the harsh scrubbing movement. 

Just like the konjac sponge for the face, this 6 Wave Body Sponge is also great to be used in the shower with or without a body wash. I use this almost everyday, I usually use it as it is in the morning, and then use it again with a body wash or shower gels on my night / afternoon shower.


I love using this body sponge because it leaves my skin silky smooth and feels lovely to the touch. It also doesn't give me dry feeling afterwards, and my skin would not feel tight at all after every shower. Even when I don't use any shower gels with this sponge my skin would feel thoroughly clean ^o^

This sponge also feels soft on the skin when I use it, and would make a good scrubber too. It has a different shape compared to the facial sponges, this one has a longer shape with wave design in the middle of it. The unique shape of it makes it easier to use for scrubbing all over the body.

Can you see the "wave" shape in the middle?

My Konjac Sponge is 100% natural. Not only that their sponges are naturally sustainable, but they are also 100% biodegradable. They are completely environmentally-friendly too. The sponges contain No Colouring and No Additives.

I have been a konjac sponge believer ever since my first time trying it, I simply love it because of it's practicality and because of the great looking skin it gave me. If you haven't tried it out yet, then go on and try one that suits your needs. They also have sponges for Men and for babies too ;)
