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.
