100% Natural Konjac Vegetable Fibre Face Mouse Sponge with Bamboo Charcoal - Review*

The original and best Konjac Sponges with the purest Konjac and mineral-rich extracts. Deeply cleanse, exfoliate and detoxify skin for a radiant complexion. Gentle enough for sensitive skins and babies, our pure Konjac Sponges are the ultimate in natural, effective skin care. The Konjac Potato or Konnyaku is a perennial plant native to Asia and can be found growing wild at very high altitudes. A totally natural food source, Konjac is 97% water, rich in mineral goodness and low in calories. Naturally alkaline, Konjac is pH neutral which leaves skin perfectly balanced. Pure Konjac is free from chemicals, colouring, additives and irritants. 100% biodegradable and fully sustainable, this moisture-rich plant fibre is mixed and handmade into our sponges with natural water filtered through volcanic rock.

This is a fun new shape for the same high-quality Konjac Sponge. Designed to fit perfectly in the hand, this ergonomically shaped sponge looks just like a computer mouse and gives a thorough all over face cleanse. Effective in combating problematic acne and breakouts, without damaging or scarring the skin. Ideal for oily, teen and blemish prone skin, is pH balanced, refines pores, cleanses and exfoliates the delicate eye area, can remove water-based make-up, can be used with or without cleanser, is suitable for sensitive skin and is 100% natural, colour & additive free and 100% biodegradable.

Before use, rinse and fully hydrate your Konjac Sponge in 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 the 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 MyPure this month, was this interesting Konjac Face Mouse Sponge with bamboo charcoal. In last months reviews, I reviewed a Konjac body sponge and because I liked it so much I wanted to give one of their facial sponges ago. I went for this shape, rather than their regular circled shaped ones, as I thought it looked a lot easier to hold and move around the face due to its shape. And I was right, it's so easy to use and it sits perfectly in my hand. The Konjac company have many different facial sponges made with various ingredients which all have different effects on the skin. I went for their one with added bamboo charcoal which is said to help eliminate spots and excess oil as it's a natural antibacterial and antifungal. It also contains activated carbon and minerals which have been used for centuries to absorb toxins, remove excess oils and fight hard to reach bacteria. I found the sponge to be really soft when using it on my face and I felt like my face got a good clean as it gently exfoliates but deeply cleanses. I find this sponge to be the perfect facial sponge as it's silky soft when wet and is very delicate on the skin.

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