I am fortunate to work with pureSOL Konjac Facial Sponge from Amazon. I've heard great things about Konjac sponges. This being the first time using it I was extremely excited!

Thoughts: My friend/YouTuber/beauty blogger constantly talked about Konjac sponges and how great the product is. I trust her judgement but for some reason, that still didn't push me to try the product. I just feel that I have way too many products and need to somehow finish them. Yes, I feel overwhelmed but that doesn't stop me from buying makeup. With skin care, I'm pretty good about finishing them. So when I was given an opportunity to try this product, I jumped without thinking!
Here's a closer look at the Konjac sponge. I looked on Amazon and pureSOL only carries two Konjac sponge; original (white) and with added bamboo charcoal.
It comes with a suction hook. This is the first time seeing this with any Konjac sponge, or maybe it does and I just don't know about it.
I looked carefully in the bathroom and the best place to suction the hook was the mirror.
The first thing the instruction says is to "soak the sponge in water until it's fully soft."
The next instruction says to "massage gently in circular motion on your face with or without your favorite cleanser." I decided to use the Konjac sponge with a cleanser. I actually used Origin cleanser sample I received. After you clean your face, rinse the sponge and squeeze the remaining water. Then you let it hang on the suction hook until next time.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all when the Konjac sponge becomes hard, it does take some time to soften from the water. Once it's soft, it's not rough at all on the face. To be honest, that was my main concern with Konjac sponge. I was scared it would be similar to exfoliating. It's great to exfoliate twice a week, but in daily basis I wasn't too sure about that. Thankfully, this isn't like exfoliating. It's more a soft cloth to wash the face. The best part it has benefits. It minimizes the pores, great for all skin types even sensitive skin, massages, and it's natural. Secondly, I love that it comes with a suction hook. Now that I'm done with this sponge, I have another Konjac sponge I'm going to use next. That one doesn't have a hook, as well as, a string. At this moment, I'm wondering how I'm going to dry it in-between usage. I might put it in a dish that but ain't the most sanitary safe. The moisture from the sponge will reflect from the dish. That might not be the best for sensitive skin. Thankfully, my skin isn't that sensitive. Lastly after I wash my face with the sponge, I noticed my skin looked more youthful and soft. I don't know if I would say it has minimize my pores especially on the nose. Then again I didn't use this in daily basis. I used it most days. Other than it giving me a glow and my skin felt soft, I didn't notice anything.
