Ashieda Konjac Sponge Review

 Ashieda Konjac Sponge - $4.85US

I received this product as part of an advertorial. 

Just about everyone and their mother (literally) using some sort of facial brush, sponge or tool now a days to wash their face with.  It's rare to find a true die hard, hard core beauty lover who only use their hand when washing their face.  I personally use my  clarisonic and love it!  However I have heard a lot about this konjac sponges and really wanted to try one.  I first saw them at Sephora for around $20.  But I didn't see the need to invest in a sponge when I already had a $200 Clarisonic system at home.  However a few months back I gave my sister a Konjac sponge to try and she loved it.  So I figured, why not!

Ashieda Konjac sponge is made of vegetable fiber with collagen which is pretty interesting. Normally sponges in general are made from some sort of foaming squeezable and soft material that absorbs water and then air dries.  However this sponge is made totally different.  When you first get the Konjac sponge, it leaves you wondering exact how in the world you going to is it.  It comes rock hard and seems like it going to scrape your face off.  However after running it under water for five minutes, it became all soft and lovely!  

Its best you use this sponge in the shower as you do need to take a few minutes to soften it with water.  So if you are in a rush that day, its best you skip it or you might take your face off.  The product says you can use this sponge without any facial cleanser.  While that might be practical in theory, in reality its far from that.  You need a facial cleanser in order to help get rid of the oil and residue on your face.  Nonetheless while this sponge can help to clean your face, it can't cut thoroughly through facial grease which we all have.  Hence why we use soap in the shower to wash our bodies with and not just water and a wash cloth.  This sponge works great to help exfoliates your skin.   It can help to clean your pores, remove blackheads and dirt from your face. 

Once you are done using it, you need to hang it somewhere to dry.  If not, it can grow mold and/or mildew.  And really who wants to wash their face time and time again with a sponge once its contaminated?!  So dry it properly to avoid it getting damaged.  Finally,  it's completely bio-degradable, which is great for the environment. 

This is a great Konjac sponge to use and for the price you can't beat it!

Keep Smiling!
