I don't usually write product reviews for my blog, however this particular product called the "Konjac Cleansing Sponge" is such an incredible skin care product that it deserves to be on the spotlight.
I've discovered this product not long ago when I was browsing some stuff at Landmark. I thought it was interesting because it claims to cleanse the face even WITHOUT a facial cleanser, just using it as is. It even has a lot of uses according to its packaging. What's more appealing to me is that it can also balance the pH level of your skin which is important in maintaining a healthy skin (check article by Sesame of vivawoman.net). Also, I've read some reviews that it is originally designed for babies.
At first, I was skeptical about using this product because when I saw this it looked like a hardened sponge--nothing so special about it. I also feared that it might just scratch and irritate my skin judging by its appearance. I followed the instructions upon using it and it eventually transformed into a soft, squishy, and slippery sponge. I thought it would still be scratchy to use but it's not; rather it is very gentle. After using this product I hang it at the back of our fridge to dry.
I was surprised by the result because it can really cleanse the face! Unlike using a foaming facial cleanser, it didn't strip off the natural lipid of my skin thus it is not drying and irritating. It has also made my skin radiant and moisturized. I also noticed that the tiny bumps (or pimplets as I call it) I had on my face start to disappear. And since it has the capability to balance the pH level of the skin, I guess I can cut off using toner.
Typically my skin care routine would be cleansing with a mild cleanser (Dove Unscented for Sensitive Skin), followed by a toner (Dickinson's Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner), and lastly using a moisturizer (Human Nature Day & Night Moisturizers). But with the Konjac Sponge, it's like you're using 3-in-1 products already for it can cleanse, balance the pH level, and moisturize the skin. More importantly, it's very convenient and easy to use especially for those who are lazy when it comes to cleansing their face. It's really recommendable!
Price: 59.75 Php at Landmark; good for 3-4 months depending on how you take care of it.
