We know a lot of new beauty products are claimed to be must-have items, but how can you really be sure it’s a wise investment for your beauty routine? We’ve done the background work for you on natural Konjac sponges used for thousands of years in Korea, Japan, and China, which will leave you with silky smooth and radiant looking skin. What is Konjac? A perennial plant Native to Asia, Konjac is an eco-friendly beauty. Made from 100 percent Konjac root, Japanese have traditionally used to calm skin. What are the benefits? Konjac is renowned for its pure and deep cleaning effects. Konjac is gentle on the skin while naturally cleansing, detoxifying, and exfoliating. When to use? Similar to having a facial everyday – Konjac is safe enough to use everyday on your face, neck, and body. How to use: Start with rinsing a Konjac sponge under warm water prior to each use. Apply cleanser and gently massage skin to remove dirt, makeup, and other impurities. Rinse and allow sponge to dry after each use.  It is recommended to replace your sponge every two to three months to maximize Konjac’s benefits. Konjac sponges are safe of: Parabens Sulfates Phosphates As with all products monitor your skin and discontinue use if skin becomes irritated, broken, or is sunburned. It’s no wonder Konjac has become a must-have item! You can get yours here with hassle free shipping. We’d love to hear from you in the comments below or connect with us on
