Konjac Face Sponge Product Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

And the award for one of the strangest looking products I've received in the last few days is this.
It is a Konjac Facial Sponge from Pure SOL with added Bamboo Charcoal

Product Details:

This is everything that came inside the box : 1 Konjac sponge on string and 1 plastic suction hook to hang it

Yes, it definitely looks like a rock and is pretty hard when you take it out of the box. I know what you're thinking--a HARD sponge for your face? Whaaaatttt?

And yes, you can hang your rock-looking sponge

You hold it under water for a few minutes and then...

It softens up and feels like a soft loofah!

You can hang it in your shower to use. How convenient! HOWEVER, you should probably hang it out of the shower in a less wet area so that it can dry after use!

How to Use:
  • Soak the sponge in water until COMPLETELY soft
  • Add just a little bit of your favorite facial cleanser onto it and gently massage it on your face in a circular motion
  • After you're done using it, rinse it out, and squeeze it gently between your hands. Don't wring it out because you will damage it
  • Then, hang it on the plastic hook (included in box) in a well-ventilated space.
  • Replace every 2-3 months or as soon as it seems to be breaking apart
  • It may dry out in between uses but no big deal, because you can just soak it in water and soften it up again!
  • The sponge can be composted when you're ready to get rid of it

Here are a few tips from the company:

  • If you live in a hot and humid climate we recommend storing your Konjac Sponge in the refrigerator in sealed container to extend the life. Please remember Konjac is a vegetable fiber and the sponge is completely natural with no preservatives or chemicals!
  • You can sterilize you sponge every few weeks by boiling it in water or popping it in the microwave for a minute.

My Thoughts on This Product:

I think that it is great. I like that it is a natural, biodegradable sponge. I love that it has NO preservatives or chemicals. It's cruelty free and vegan. YAY! I love how easy it is to use and the little hook and string are a cute addition. 
I have been using it on my face for over a week, alternating between my Adovia Dead Sea Soap and my The Healing Tree Bamboo Charcoal Soap. You really only have to use very little because this little sponge sure creates a good amount of bubbles. 
Normally I use a tiny plastic face scrubber on my face but this Konjac Sponge is a nice change because it is so soft and fluffy against my skin.  It helps me get my skin as clean as possible, helps exfoliate my skin too, and I love it. I would love to own a bigger one that can be used all over the body. 
Have I noticed a change in my skin's appearance? Well, I have been able to really thoroughly clean my face better before so it is looking a bit better. 
It does contain carbon in it as well as essential minerals which help draw out toxins. Excellent! I feel good every time I use it because of this. How refreshing to know that I'm getting all those excess chemicals and whatever else my skin is being exposed to on a daily basis.

**Disclaimer: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.**

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new.
