Konjac Sponge

Konjac Sponge - Clovers & Kale - Natural Beauty


You guys. This rock / pumice / avocado shaped / styrofoam / looking thing is my new favorite beauty product. And of course, it’s au natural!

What is a Konjac Sponge?

It’s a highly renewable perennial root plant (perennial = it lives longer than 1 season, or 1 year). It’s comprised of mostly starch (like a potato). Konjac grows in warm subtropical to tropical climates (think Japan, Korea, China & Indonesia).  Konjac has been known in Japan since the sixth century as a medicinal food, and it has been eaten for 1500 years! My favorite fact is that it can be used as a vegan substitute for gelatin!!

How to use it:


  1. Wet the sponge completely.  This takes a minute…Don’t just get it partially wet, get it soaked!
  2. Massage face with sponge in a circular motion.  If I haven’t worn any makeup, I just use the sponge only to clean my face. Otherwise, I’ll put a bit of my facial cleanser on the sponge after it’s soaked with water.
  3. When you’re done, simply rinse the sponge with water and lay it flat to air dry.  Replace sponge every 1-2 months.

When you wet the sponge and put it to your face, it feels like it has gel on it!! So bizarre.

Ditch the washcloth & harsh facial scrub!  Spend $6-$20 and get yourself a Konjac. My face gets a deeper clean and feels so smooth and refreshed after using my Konjac. It’s so gentle, I can use it morning and night. I really appreciate this because my regular cleanser isn’t quite enough and using a wash cloth is just a bit too rough to use daily. I have an awesome (expensive) exfoliating facial scrub that I use 1-2x a week, but it’s not something that should be used daily. This sponge is the greatest!!

There are Konjac’s for sensitive skin.  They are normally white/tan colored.  Mine is gray because it has bamboo charcoal, which contains activated carbon, minerals, and antioxidants that fight blemish causing bacteria.

Also, I recommend getting a larger one for your body too!!

You can find these sponges at the RiteAid, Target, Ulta, Sephora, and of course, on Amazon

Have a beautiful weekend babes!
