Meet the Konjac Sponge: Your Skin's New BFF

Ever wonder if your skin could feel more rejuvenated just by switching up how you wash your face? The answer is a resounding "yes" – all thanks to the Konjac sponge revolutionising your skincare game!

What are konjac sponges?

Konjac sponges are not only 100% natural but also a "blast from the past". They come from the root of the Konjac plant, which has been grown in Asia for ages. These vegetable fiber sponges have a natural talent for being porous and ultra-soft when drenched in water. They're like a gentle hug for your face, making them perfect for all skin types, even the most sensitive ones. Say goodbye to dead skin cells, stubborn dirt, and makeup residue with daily exfoliation, and say hello to a fresh and oh-so-clean complexion. Plus, these sponges are Mother Earth-approved – they're biodegradable and compostable. Radiant skin without extra steps? Yes, please!

How it works

Ready to take the plunge? Start by giving your sponge a warm bath, letting it soak for a couple of minutes until it's soft and squishy.

Splash your face with water, add a few drops of your go-to cleanser to your sponge, and gently scrub in circular motions. And remember, just like you swap out your toothbrush, replace your sponge every 2-3 months to keep it fresh and bacteria-free.

Skin type? No problem! Konjac sponges are like the life of the party – they get along with everyone. Boost your skincare routine without eating up extra minutes of your precious time.
