I have something exciting, new and unique to review for you all today, so say hello to the beauty that is The Konjac Company's NEW French Pink Clay Heart Sponge, before I get into the review let me tell you a little bit more about the company itself. The Kojac Company is an award winning beauty sponge company that make extremely gentle cleansing face and body sponges like no other. All of their beauty sponges are handmade and contain 100% natural vegetable fibres along with French clays and some even contain pure charcoal from bamboo, also they are all 100% biodegradable as well as being cruelty free and suitable for vegans.
As I said before I've actually been testing out The Konjac Company's NEW French Pink Clay Heart Sponge* (£8.99) and I have to say I'm in love with it! Firstly I love the fact its pink and heart shaped, I just think it makes things alot more fun and looks so cute if your buying one of the sponges as a gift he he. The heart shaped sponge itself is made up of Pink clay (rose clay) which is a mixture of red and white clay and is the mildest of all the French clays. It's naturally mineral rich in iron oxide and silica, and has a softening effect on hard, rough skin making it great to use if you have dryer, flaky skin like myself and is said to improve circulation too.
To use the sponge all you have to do is rinse and hydrate it under warm water until it gets all soft and puffed up slighty (when you first get the sponge it will be rock hard and very lightweight), then gently squeeze out any excess water, and then go on to cleanse your skin. The little heart shaped sponge gets to work quickly to gentley exfoliate, rubbing off dead skin cells in the most delicate manner so if your skins sensitive like mine then this sponge will feel great against your skin. The extra soft texture means that its OK for anyone to use, and when looking at the website I honestly couldn't believe the amount of sponges the Kojac Company have to offer, whether you want a sponge for your baby, for yourself to use in the bath on your body, for the man in your life and even your dog (yup that right, even your dog) The Konjac Sponge Company have got you covered. 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 you don't even have to add any additional cleanser to the sponge, however if you wish so you can add a small amount, I tend to use a Micellar Water first to remove my eye makeup and to give my face a quick swipe over and then I use the sponge to deep clean.
After use, always rinse your sponge well, and allow it to dry in an airy place between uses. I like to either hang mine in the airing cupboard or from a window hook to dry back out and if you look after your sponge well it will last you 2-3 months.
Overall im really impressed with this little sponge and would highly recommend it as it makes my skin feel absolutly amazing after each use, its little claim of 'Have a mini facial everday' is certainly apt as it feels great yet effotless to use and afterwards my skin is left feeling super soft, deeply cleansed, exfoliated and renewed without damaging my sentaive skin.
Have you tried a Kojac beauty sponge yet beaut'?? What did you think?? I'd love to know!
