Dr Sponge Review

I purchased a Konjac Sponge because I was really intrigued about it after hearing a lot of them on youtube and blogs so I thought I'd see if I could replace my clarisonic with it.

So you're probably asking what exactly is a Konjac sponge? They're made from the plant roots of the Konjac plant in Japan. It's a mineral rich potato plant that has been used as a beauty treatment for a long time. It's 100% natural, biodegradable and affordable. Various companies make them priced at $10. The  sponge comes infused with a second natural ingredient to help with all skin types and issues. I went with the sponge with added charcoal as it's supposed to be good for oily skin. So you can use cleanser with it if you want but you can also use it just on its own too.

When I first opened my package it was hard as a rock! Once you soak it in water it increases in size and becomes very soft. You then massage it all over your face in circular motions. Once you're done rinse it out and hang it out to dry. The only downside is when I use it in the shower I have to be very careful not to get any cleanser in my eyes. When I use it at the sink same thing with my nose.

If you're looking for an all natural exfoliator, try one for yourself! After I wrote this I was flipping through the May issue of Allure Magazine and saw on page 70 they wrote an article about konjac sponges! Here’s a picture of the plant and how it's made, all by hand.
