The Daily Concepts Charcoal Konjac Sponge ($18) is one of three new Your Zen Konjac Sponges that Daily Concepts has recently released. I know many of you are konjac junkies like myself. It’s understandable as they are handy little tools for cleansing your face.
Let’s see how the Daily Concepts Charcoal Konjac Sponge works!
Konjac sponges are all the rage in Asia and considerably cheaper than the ones you might see releasing lately here in the US from brands like Daily Concepts and Boscia. These gentle facial sponges are made from the vegetable fibers of the konjac plant. Instead of using your bare hands to cleanse your face these sponges are a great and unique way to not only cleanse your skin but also to gently exfoliate it. Apparently the konjac has slight alkaline which breakds down blackheads, and oil which gives a truly deep yet gentle cleanse.
I think many turn to the konjac since it’s a relatively cheap and Eco-friendly way to cleanse skin versus purchasing an inexpensive cleansing skin brush. With time and patience it actually produces the same results you’d get from your Clarisonic and it won’t cost you 100’s of dollars.
The Daily Concepts Charcoal Konjac Sponge is $18 which for some may prove a little expensive but since the US market isn’t exactly filled with a ton of konjac sponge options this is a relatively easy way to try the sponge since you can get it at your local drugstore.
The Daily Concepts Charcoal Konjac Sponge is 100% natural, preservative-free, vegan, and not tested on animals. As you can see from my photos it’s a rather large konjac as many are half the size of this one. It kinda resembles a pumice stone at first and has a hard, gritty dense texture. Add water and it instantly softens up and becomes squishy and sponge-like. Now you can add your favorite cleanser into the mix and gently move the sponge around your face. It really creates mounds and mounds of lather from a simple facial cleanser. As you work you’ll find it gently exfoliates your skin as it cleanses. One of the best things about these sponges is the fact you come out of a simple facial cleansing super squeaky clean. Your face just looks brighter after cleansing with this sponge. It’s something that I really love about using konjac sponges….I have duller, drier skin and my complexion always looks so smooth, soft, and brighter after I use the sponge!
The sponges are meant to be replaced every 2 to 3 months. After you rinse it out you can air dry it. It’ll shrivel up and become hard again as the water drains and dries out of it. But no worries as soon as you place it back in water it’ll proceed to soften up again.
Daily Concepts Charcoal Konjac Sponge makes a very nice and LARGE version of the konjac. I wish it was a smidge cheaper and more budget friendly at around $12 dollars but all and all it’s a very nice sponge!
If you’ve been curious about konjac sponges this is a good place to start your journey.
