A few months ago when I signed up for Julep, I got a Konjac sponge in my first Maven box. I wasn’t really sure what a Konjac Sponge was or what it was used for so of course I googled it. Konjac sponges have been used for many years by Japanese women and in 2014 it made its way into the US becoming the new IT product…. Yea i’m really late with this discovery.
This is a Konjac sponge… And it’s my favorite new beauty tool. This thing has completely eliminated my black heads. It’s made from the root of the Konjac plant and the fibers in the sponge act as a magnet to pull out the dirt from clogged pores. It has a squishy texture which allows it to generate a rich lather without you having to use a lot of cleanser. I’ve been using it for a few weeks and my skin is beyond smooth. They start out at about $5 (Target) but go up to about $140 or sometimes higher. I got this one in my July Julep Maven box. They last for about 3 months and then should be replaced. (Note: when the sponge dries it is very hard so please wet it to soften it so that you don’t injure your skin)
