3 Reasons to Use a Japanese Konjac Facial Sponge with Green Tea Review
In recent years I have absolutely moved on from using wash cloths on my face, graduating to facial sponges. With the all too popular Konjac sponges on the market, my face has found a new love. This time it’s the Japanese Konjac Facial Sponge with Green Tea and you know I am all about sharing!

Konjac sponges are my new faves when it comes to cleaning my skin, because the added ingredients help to heal, moisturize and hydrate my skin, and I can use them with or without a cleanser. The Japanese Konjac Facial Sponge with Green Tea is great for oily and combination skin, I happen to have the latter, and being an all natural product is a big plus.
In the Box: The Japanese Konjac Facial Sponge with Green Tea comes in a really pretty decorated box with a Japanese theme with bamboo leaves. It’s just really cute and fits the brand to perfection. There is also a handy little instruction card on the inside which will get you started right away. Ok, enough about the box. . .
Out of the Box: The sponge comes wrapped in plastic with an attached string which makes it convenient to hang up for drying. Be careful not to cut the attached string when removing the plastic – if you follow my blog, you know I’ve done this before in my rush to get it open.
If I’m using cleanser, I apply it directly to the sponge and start to work it in a light circular motion on my face. I really like using a foaming cleanser with Konjac sponges, but you can use any cleanser you like. I would not recommend oil cleansers, as it could damage the natural fibers of the sponge.
After use, simply rinse and press the excess water and cleanser from the sponge. Be careful not to twist or wring the sponge and this can also damage the fibers and give your sponge a much shorter life.
Jaxs-tip:: After a week of use, I place my wet Konjac sponge in a ramekin (that I use specifically for this purpose) with water and microwave it for 2 minutes. This removes any bacteria from the sponge and does not damage the fibers.
