There has been a breakthrough in our long standing facial cleansing/moisturizing conundrum. I’m still head-over-heels for my coconut oil face wash, but I finally found something natural for the husband. (If you recall, he isn’t too keen on my homemade mix for himself.)
I stumbled upon Sinsun Konjac Facial Sponges while creating our holiday wish lists. After showing Ryan, we agreed that it was a must try. They are facial sponges made with 100% pure Konjac vegetable fiber and processed without any coloring or additives. 100% natural, Eco-friendly and compostable, baby! With all of this along with the promise of cleansing your skin of toxins and exfoliation, we were sold.
What we ordered were the activated charcoal (black sponge) and the green tea (green sponge), but there are a variety of colors with each holding their own
magical natural powers. The turmeric (yellow sponge) will likely be the next sponge I order. It is supposed to give you brighter looking skin, improve skin texture, and reduce signs of aging (as if I could lose this baby face even if I tried).
While I still primarily use my own homemade wash (it’s never done me wrong), I like these sponges for times when I’m away from home since they are more travel-friendly. And I LOVE them for being a natural solution for my man.
To prepare the facial sponges let them soak in warm water for a few minutes to soften and expand. Using the moist sponge, rub your skin in a circular upward motion to gently exfoliate your entire face. When you are finished, gently squeeze to remove excess water and hang to dry.
The facial sponges should be replaced every 2-3 months after frequent use (don’t forget they’re compostable!). There is only one downside to the whole thing, and it bothers me more than Ryan, but there is a slight odor to the sponges, particularly the green one. It’s almost like a faint vitamin smell. The results speak for themselves. Our skin is loving the Konjac facial sponges.
You can get a three pack for $11.97 with the charcoal (for acne), green tea (for damaged skin), and natural white (for sensitive skin and babies) here (affiliate link). If my beloved coconut oil face wash wasn’t for you (or even if it is) I hope you find beautiful, happy, and natural skin in these organic facial sponges.
