Konjac sponges seem to be the new it skincare and body product so I was pretty delighted when the lovely Rayisa from Bahira Laser and Beauty Spa gave me one to try out. So what is Konjac? Konjac or Konnyaku is an Asian perennial plant which usually grows at high altitudes. It is 97% water, rich in minerals and pH neutral. Originally created for babies’ skin, the Konjac sponges are said to gently exfoliate and remove dead skin, nourish and keep the skin’s natural pH and moisture balance. The Konjac Sponge Company ensures that their products do not contain any additional chemicals or additives. The sponges are handmade from the Konjac plant fibres using water that has been filtered through mineral rich volcanic rock. They are certified vegan, biodegradable and cruelty free and promote ethical production conditions.
I was given the 6 Wave Body Sponge which is for the entire body. It claims to do all that I have mentioned above as well as eliminate in-grown hairs. In order to test it, I used it over a period of 3 showers and I did not use any body moisturizers afterwards to monitor the effect.to use this sponge, it must be hydrated slightly in warm water.
I used the sponge in a circular motion, specifically concentrating on my elbows and knees which are the driest. I instantly felt the difference, although my skin was not deeply moisturized, it felt smooth and supple. That tight, dry feeling my skin usually has after a hot shower was not there and my knees and elbows were not dull and ashy. My skin also did not get itchy and irritated over the day as it usually does when I skip the moisturizer. I’m not sure how it will work in the dry winter but you can definitely get away with no moisturizer after using the sponge in summer.
For me the 6 Wave Pure Konjac Body Sponge definitely worked and did what it claimed to do. I will definitely repurchase it and I would like to try out the other versions of the Konjac sponge, especially the facial ones.
