CHARCOAL KONJAC SPONGE
***My Personal Review***
When I got this in the mail the first thing I noticed was how tiny the box was and the sponge so at first I wasn't sure. It was hard as a rock - literally looks like a charcoal briquette. However, the instructions stated it would soften up completely in water. So I took it out and rubbed it, it was actually very smooth and it has a little string attached to it. I took it in the shower with me and I let the water run over it for just about a minute and then grabbed it and it was like HEAVEN! Even though there is no soap in it, the sponge feels like it does have some kind of oil or soap in it and makes your skin feel amazing.
I don't wear a lot of makeup, basically just base so I rubbed it all over my face and neck and behind my ears. It took all of the makeup off WITHOUT me having to use soap and it left my face feeling fresh and clean and there was no residue at all. I loved it! I am actually excited to get back in the shower tomorrow and use it again :) That to me is the sign that it is a great product when I want to use it again. Konjac was something I had not heard of and I didn't know what it was so I looked it up - it is actually a perennial plant that is indigenous to warm tropical regions like Asia. From Wikipedia: Konjac has been known in Japan since the sixth century as a medicinal food, and it has been eaten for 1500 years.
It is really hard to explain the feel of the sponge, but it wasn't like a normal run of the mill sponge that you would buy in the store and it definitely wasn't like the mesh scrubbers. It is a little slippery in your hands, but to me that is a great thing because that just shows how soft it is on your skin. I honestly think this would be an awesome product to use all over your body with your favorite soap (it would have to be bigger LOL but that could be done). It isn't harsh like you would think by looking at it, but it definitely got the job done and took all the dead skin off and made my skin feel wonderful! I would buy these again in a heartbeat. I am really wanting to try some of their scented ones like cherry blossom :) If they can get a sponge to work so well I can't imagine how wonderful the scented ones are. Totally worth the money, go pick up about a dozen of these and try them! You will NOT be disappointed! Plus when you are done with it you can use it in composting! How awesome is that for the earth?
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
