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!
Which is why you might be slightly intimidated by the $18 Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge so why not check out the konjac trend and craze at a cheaper price?
Wondering what the hit and miss beauty releases in February were?
Now that we’re half way into March we’ll be celebrating Summer 2014 Makeup Collection soon! But February had a few great Spring 2014 launches as I recall.
Anything you can think of that was a super hit for you? Any misses?
I know at least several products that really struck a home run with me. And others that just had me signing in disappointment.
Here are some that I thought were worth a mention.
Take a look at them below!
Meet the new Gillette Venus Snap Razor ($12.99) because smaller is better? This new travel sized Venus Razor is about three quarters the size of an original Venus Razor making it easy for traveling with.
