Want to have glowing, radiant skin? Us too! Which is why we had to try out the latest beauty trend for ourselves: Konjac Sponges. So what is a konjac sponge? It’s a sponge that looks like a pumice stone but softens when wet. It’s made from the vegetable root fibers of konjac root, a potato-like plant grown in Korea, China & Japan.
Why use it? For starters, it cleanses and exfoliates at the same time. Think washing your make-up off and gently exfoliating dead skin cells all at once. Cutting down a step in your skincare routine is huge when you’re short on time, tired from a long day or just lazy when it comes to washing your face. All you do is wet the sponge, add a drop of your favorite cleansing product, lather, and massage face in circular motions. You can use on its own too-no product required.
The other really great thing about this little magical sponge is that unlike a washcloth, it dries very quickly and can be used repeatedly without harboring bacteria — just hang to dry after each use. The one we tested lasted a little over two months! Goodbye face wipes and hello sustainable skincare.
The last reason we love our new skincare essential is because it helps reveal a more even, smooth, soft, and radiant complexion. Thanks to its gentle exfoliating qualities, you can use this sponge every day without irritation, and we’ve found our make-up goes on better. It’s a clean slate for your serums, products, and make-up, making it a must-have on our skincare list! Want an insider tip? Bella makes konjac face and body sponges, so now you enjoy the same great cleansing and exfoliation on your entire body instead of just your face.
Bonus: it’s great for the environment too since it’s 100% biodegradable!
