100% Plant Based Konjac Sponge infused with Activated Charcoal
As a blogger I get to try a lot of products I have never heard of before. A Konjac Sponge is definitely one of those items. A Konjac sponge is a beauty product that exfoliates, moisturizes, and cleanses your face. It is basically a facial rolled into one product.
I got to try a 100% Plant Based Konjac Sponge infused with Activated Charcoal by Oleavine. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and honestly I am not super impressed. I found that there was no difference in my skin since using it. This may be because I have a pretty detailed skin routine already or because it simply didn't blend well with my skin.
What I did like about this sponge though is that it had a string attached to it so that it can hang up and dry when it is not in use. I had mine hanging in the shower out of the way so once I was done using it- it would dry.
I also loved how soft this sponge is. It doesn't irritate my skin at all. Many times with an exfoliator it is rough and uncomfortable. I also tend to get blotchy and red when I exfoliate and due to the softness of this sponge I did not!
I don't know much about Konjac sponges so I do not know if this is particular to this brand or not- but I love that there are no chemicals in this sponge. I think it is so important to keep skin healthy and free of any sort of unnatural substance. I also like how it is biodegradeable! A lot of exfoliators have little beads that don't break apart and get deposited into the ocean and rivers. Marine life will then eat the beads and die because they are harmful!
Here is some information from the company:100% NATURAL, ECO-FRIENDLY and BIODEGRADEABLE - We painstakingly evaluated countless Konjac sponges on the market before putting our reputation behind this beauty. Our Konjac fiber is grown on the pristine volcanic plains of Jeju Island in South Korea, free from chemicals, pollution and irritants.
