What is Konjac Sponge and how is used?

The Konjac root has been part of Japan’s beauty rituals for more than 1,500 years, and is now used to make these sponges named after it. They are used in the skin cleansing routine to help remove makeup, dirt and black spots. They are made of natural fibers that absorb a lot of water, which makes them have a unique texture.

At first the texture is rigid. Cured for a few minutes under warm water, it grows and gets a sparkling texture, I do not know how to describe it better, but it’s unique. Sensation during use is relaxing, very soothing and reassuring. I use the evening to remove makeup as a last step, and the process is extremely delicate. The skin does not get irritated and does not hurt at all after.


It can be used on its own, but I like to use it with a cleaning product, and the skin feels velvety and looks bright and fresh after rinsing. Due to the shape, I succeed in successfully covering every area of the face. It  is especially recommended for people with acne or blocked pores. It also exfoliates the skin and escapes those dry and desquamated portions, helps keep oil under control and face shine free for longer.

After use, you should rinse it, press it gently to remove the excess and then let it dry, hanging from its hook. I warmly recommend it to those with sensitive skin  and it’s easy available and affordable. I like it a lot and it has become part of my everyday routine
