If you haven’t already heard of the Konjac Sponge, today is your lucky day. This squishy guy has completely changed the way I do my skincare routine.
FUN FACT: The Japanese have used Konjac for over 1500 years as a food source and over the last century have been using the Konjac potato as a beauty treatment. And now it’s slowly being introduced in North America.
The Konjac sponge is an extremely gentle cleanser, and it acts as a gentle exfoliator, rubbing off dead skin cells in the most delicate manner. While this won’t replace your makeup remover (eye makeup more specifically) it can gently take off much of your face makeup in a matter of minutes, and the best part about it is that you don’t even need to use an extra cleanser with it! Elle R Cosmetics has a line of Konjac Sponges for oily, sensitive to normal skin types, so anyone can use it.
The Looky Skin (French website only) Konjac Sponges are available in select pharmacies across Canada.
