MY Konjac Sponge Bamboo Charcoal Facial Sponge Review

I have been using this Charcoal Konjac sponge by My Konjac Sponge for about a month now.  When it arrived I was a bit unsure how to hold it as I had been using smaller facial konjac sponges.  After a couple days I was able to get my coordination with the larger meaty part in my palm and using the pointy end for working around my face.  This sponge is made from natural konjac, a Japanese yam, with the infusion of bamboo charcoal.  This sponge is a bit softer and less dense than my previous konjac sponges.  This is almost the consistency of the Ethiopian sourdough pancakes that are used to scoop up entree dishes which are well, spongy.  Right..  

The sponge has the addition of bamboo charcoal to help scrub away oils and impurities.  There is not any gritty feeling in this sponge.  It does not have the strong scrubbing feel that you might expect of an exfoliator.  But I have really found that this sponge does exactly what I need in getting my face cleaned and oil free.  I enjoy the way I can get this sponge to contour over my face and clean in massaging circles.  I was first using this as my primary facial sponge until miracle of miracles my Clarisonic began to work again.   I thought I would ditch the Konjac sponges but I have found that I am still using it every day.  I am kinda bad about washing my face thoroughly at night and I rarely use my Clarisonic outside of shower time.  But this sponge is perfect for  cleansing my face post makeup removal before bedtime.  I do not even need to use cleanser with this sponge.  A little water to revive its shape and about a minute to clean my face and neck.

The sponge comes on a small string so you can press out the water and then hang it up to dry.  This sponge has lasted me well with daily use for about a month and I see it with probably another month of life.  You can sanitize it by microwaving it or boiling.  It does not come with a hanger but I had this little lady handy for just this sponge ;)  I recommend the My Konjac Sponge.  You can find more about this and other types of konjac sponges at their website HERE  ad you can purchase it on Amazon at the link below.  


well thank you for your time and have a great day!
