100% Natural Konjac Vegetable Fibre Big Buffer Body Sponge - Review*

The softest sponge I've come across! 

The biggest Konjac sponge, the Big Body Buffer with 100% pure Konjac, sloughs off dead skin cells to gently exfoliate the body and give a luxurious all over cleanse. Regular use can help reduce blemishes, ingrown hairs and keep skin smooth and supple. Ergonomically designed with 6 waves, the Big Body Buffer is approximately 15 x 9cm which is perfect for use in the shower or bath. This Konjac Sponge is also perfect for eczema sufferers, sensitive skins, pH balancing, tackling ingrowing hairs and is 100% cruelty-free and certified vegan.

Before use, rinse and fully hydrate your Konjac Sponge with warm water. Squeeze out any excess water, and gently cleanse skin. Massage in a circular motion to gently exfoliate, refresh and condition the skin. It is not necessary to use cleaning products, but a small amount can be added to your Konjac Sponge if desired. If a cleanser is added, the sponge will help the product work harder, and go further.

After use, always rinse your sponge well, and allow to dry in an airy place between uses. Please be careful not to wring it out as this may damage the delicate plant fibres, just squeeze between your flattened hands. You can also pop your clean sponge in the fridge to keep it fresh and cool, which helps keep your Konjac Sponge last even longer. Alternatively, your sponge is happy to be aired on a heated towel rail or from a window hook. When dry it will shrink and harden, this is perfectly natural. Simply allow it to absorb water and rehydrate before using again. Never use the sponge when dry. The better care of the sponge, the longer it will last. And never leave the sponge in the shower or in a pool of water.

The first product I decided that I would like to review from this month, was this wonderful Konjac Big Bugger Body Sponge. I've never used a Konjac sponge before, although I have heard of them and I have always been intrigued by them. Now I've used one I don't think I'll ever be going back to using my regular body exfoliating hand gloves! This is most definitely the most gentle and softest sponge I have ever come across. The sponge itself came dry in its packaging and was very hard, so I was really surprised at how soft it becomes after I had fully wet it. When showering, I made the mistake of using a large scoop of my LUSH Cosmetics Rub Rub Rub shower scrub to used with the sponge. It produced loads of bubbles and it took me ages to wash the product out from the sponge. When I use my sponge again I know now to use just a little bit of a product as it seems to go a very long way. Overall I've really loved using my sponge and a couple sponges that I'm really excited to try out from the range next are the Bamboo Charcoal and the Green Clay facial sponges.

This product was sent to me to review, all views are my own.


  1. I love these sponges, I use the pink clay and have re-purchased a few times since discovering them :)
