So on Instagram, i came across a picture of this sponge by Ajali, and i knew it was the 'One'. My search was over! I placed my order and after a few days it was delivered to me along with two other products i ordered from their website.....but today, we are talking about the Konjac Face Sponge.
They have the Lavender, Ginger, Bamboo, Green tea & Original varieties of the Konjac Face sponge. I went for the Green tea variant because it suits my skin type best.
LAVENDER: Suitable for all skin types. This sponge is the perfect de-stress treatment after a long day. Also encourages cell regeneration.
GINGER : Combats irritations, inflammations and minimizes bacteria that causes acne. It contains natural skin brightening properties, and it's suitable for oily skin.
BAMBOO : Infused with activated charcoal and is perfect for oily and acne-prone skin.
GREEN TEA : Infused with natural green tea. It has added anti-oxidant benefits and is suitable for normal to combination skin types.
ORIGINAL : No added clays. Perfect for sensitive skin.
Ajali says :
"Our Konjac Sponges are made with the purest konjac fibre and mineral rich extracts to deeply cleanse, exfoliate and detoxify your skin for a radiant complexion. They are unbelievably soft and gentle enough for sensitive skin and babies. Our ph-balanced Konjac Sponges are the ultimate in natural, effective skin care."
|Strong, hard and fresh out of the pack|
I have used it for about 5 days now. When you first open the pack, the sponge comes out really strong and hard, but once you soak it in water like it says on the pack that you should, it softens up really nicely and increases in size.
You are supposed to soak it in water and squeeze it gently until it gets soft, then you wring/squeeze out the excess water and massage it on your face using gentle, circular motions.
Aaaaah! It feels really nice for a change as opposed to using my hands to wash my face. I love the fact that it's not harsh and it has no sharp edges. It feels entirely smooth and soft, and that is good for a facial sponge.
It's really soft, and i think you can actually use it to bathe your baby *but i'll suggest you get the 'Original' variant for baby*.
|This is what it looks like after you soak it to soften it and wring out all the excess water.|
You can use it with or without your facial cleanser / soap. When you are done scrubbing your face with it, you should hang it to dry until your next use. Well, since i use it everyday, it never really dries out completely before i use it again. If you don't use it for a while, it dries back to the hard state you got it in.
Well, since i've only used it for 5 days, i can't tell if there's a visible difference on my face yet.....for now, i'm just content with the fact that i've gotten myself the perfect soft sponge for scrubbing my face *looool!*. If it changes my facial skin in anyway, there'll surely be an update on this blog.
Replace the sponge after one month of everyday use.
I will be reviewing the Lip scrub and Lip balm i bought from Ajali also very soon....and next, i'll buy their Raw Sugar Polish.
