Kiko Less Is Better Konjac Sponge Review

Need a new konjac sponge in your skincare life? The new Kiko Less Is Better Konjac Sponge ($10) hit the scene recently as part of the Less is Better Capsule Collection for Spring 2017. Is it terribly weird that I wanted this because it was pink? I mean, I don’t have a pink konjac sponge and I really like pink…..!

No, but seriously, if your skincare life doesn’t include a konjac sponge, you’re missing out on something special. Plus pink ones are actually fantastic for duller, drier skin types (black are best for problem skin types but I tend to use black anyway as they give a good, deep clea).

I mean you can totally wash your face with your hands but honestly, a sponge especially a konjac sponge makes things a hell of a lot easier plus they have a range of great benefits. These sponges are made from the konjac plant and are wildly popular in Asia. Kiko’s version is a large tear drop design in a pale pink shade that arrives in pre-moistened but you’ll want to wash it before using it. Konjac are typically dry and gritty but become squishy and soft when they hit water.

Since this is a pink sponge it has a softer, squishy consistency than a black konjac which makes it idea for sensitive users. Simply wet the sponge and squeeze a dollop of your favorite cleanser on the sponge. It’ll create a good deal of lather which you can gently buff into your skin using the sponge. The sponge not only gives you a deep clean but it also gently exfoliates as you buff. If you have clogged pores it’ll also act to dislodge any gunk lodged in them like blackheads, dirt, or oil.

I tend to use konjac sponges during my evening cleanse and rely on my Clarisonic for my AM routine.

If you aren’t willing to splurge on a high-end cleansing brush or you’re just looking for a way to get a deeper clean I’d totally recommend Kiko Less Is Better Konjac Sponge.

    Muse I took your advice and looked for konjac sponges on Ebay. I spent $8 and didn’t realize I was buying 4! Haha. I got some large ones for my scaly reptile Cleveland winter elbows. Thanks for the suggestion!

    • Isabella Muse

      YAY! 😀 Nice haul! My pleasure 😀 try using one of the larger ones with your favorite body scrub! It makes my knees/elbows so smooth!

    Ok, I’m way late to the game, but I really want to try these Konjac thingys now… Dang you for awakening the Lemming, Muse!! 😀

    Do you have a favorite one? I know you can spend a lot or a little on them, and to start with, I’d like to spend a little…. 😀

    totally don’t fault you for wanting the pink one! I wanted to buy the light pink beauty blender because it’s name was “bubble” which is what my brother used to call me

  • Bonnie

    Muse, thank u so for this recommendation. I purchased 2 from Kiko direct. Luv’em! But they came with no instructions on how to sanitize, & I never seem to be able to get all the cleanser out. What do you do to clean yours?

    • Isabella Muse

      Hi Bonnie! Yay happy to hear. Typically I toss after a month of use, that’s the best pratice. Rinse it under cold water, squeeze, rinse, and squeeze to remove any excess cleanser and allow to air dry (keep it out of humid areas when drying). You can also toss it in a bowl of water and microwave it for 60 seconds to kill any germs/bacteria. Hope this helps?
