Konjac sponge review

I received this item in exchange for an honest review.

Good morning faithful readers -
It's been about 2 weeks since I hit my head and had the concussion and today I am finally starting to feel like myself again. I'm happy to finally feel good again. It's really frustrating to struggle with your health for years, and turn it around just to have an accident bump you back a few steps again. I've found it helps me so much if I start my day by cleaning for a couple of hours, followed by about 50 minutes of Zumba. I still struggle with staying hydrated, but I'm working on it and that alone has helped me enormously. I feel like sticking to a beauty regime helps as well. When I was organizing my makeup recently and tossing out anything which had expired, I came up with the idea to take any makeup which expires in - say a month or so - and putting it all together in one of my Ipsy bags. I added in the essentials, and bingo! I have one bag to go to after my shower and my makeup routine now is pretty simple and requires almost no thought. The only thing I'm changing each day is the eyeliner. After years and years of struggling with raccoon eyes I finally figured out that if I apply mascara as the first step of my eye makeup, I can just about avoid all raccoon eyes! Anyway, after that I apply a basic eyeliner. Then I usually use one of my LA Colors jumbo eye pencils on my entire eyelid and finally top that with some eyeshadow. My mood has been so much better over the past few months in general and I'm feeling better but it seems like one of the things I struggle with the most is my concentration. Due to my epilepsy and brain injury issues I struggle with something like ADHD a lot of days, so little things like this helps. I'm happy I've figured out a few tips to help myself, and I just wanted to share them in case they can help anyone else.

Part of my daily routine is the use of my konjac sponge which I will be reviewing for you today.


Product Description
How to use:

1. Soak the sponge for several minutes in water until it is fully soft.

2. Gently massage your face with it without scrubbing. Once it is soft, you can wash your face with the sponge and water or you can put your facial cleanser on the sponge.

3. You can rinse the sponge and press it gently and press it with two hands.
Then, hang the sponge on the enclosed hook in a well-ventilated space after use.

1. We recommend to replace the konjac sponge every 4-8 weeks.
2. Pureeni konjac sponge added Activated Bamboo Charcoal comes dry like a hard loofah. You need to soak the sponge in a bowl of water for numeral usages. It is soft.
3. If you are allergic to the konjac sponge, please stop the use.

This is not the first time I have used a konjac sponge, so I knew what to expect with this. Like others I have used in the past, the sponge was hard out of the package but once soaked in water became nice and soft.

I like this particular sponge a lot because of the size and shape. As you can see from my picture, the sponge fits very nicely in my hand. It's not too small nor too bulky. It soaks up the soap very easily so I found I use less soap. This konjac sponge is very easy to use due to the shape.

I've been using this sponge for about a month and mine shows no sign of deterioration, which is excellent. I've used other sponges which started to fall apart on the first use, so I'm very happy with the quality of this product. They recommend replacing it every four to eight weeks so I will continue to watch for signs of it falling apart but I feel pretty sure this one will last me at least a few more weeks. One more thing I like about this sponge is that it does have a string attached to it which makes it easy to hang up in my shower. You would think the holes for the string would weaken it, but even so mine seems to be holding up well.

One last difference with this sponge is that the manufacturer does state you can squeeze it to wring out excess soap and water. Others I've used in the past specifically state NOT to do this. I have done this with this sponge and it's been fine.

This Konjac sponge is $6.99 on Amazon.
