If you’re keeping up with the latest foreign beauty imports you probably know that late 2013 and into 2014 the popular Japanese Konjac sponge is getting some publicity here in the US.
The Konjac sponge is made from the root of a konjac plant and starts out life as a hard, gritty sponge that gets super squishy and soft when you dampen it with water. It’s used in Asia because of its ability to dislodge dirt, oil, and blackheads aiding in giving you a deeper facial cleansing experience.
Konjac sponge not only get your skin squeaky clean but also gently exfoliate your skin as you clean it. It also helps you use a lot less cleanser since it creates literally mounds of lather and foam. It quickly dries out once you’re done using it and this supposedly prevents bacteria and mold from building up however, you still have to toss it after a few months of uses. Konjac sponges are particularly great for those with clogged pores as the fibers of the sponge gently unplug pores!
