Japanese Charcoal Konjac Sponge $11.75 Available @ Japanese Charcoal Sponge
The Japanese Konjac Sponge – Bamboo Charcoal Konjac Sponge is excellent for sensitive, oily and acne prone skin. This facial and body cleansing sponge is created by adding bamboo charcoal to the main Konjac mixture. Bamboo charcoal is charcoal made from bamboo plants. In Japan, bamboo charcoal is used for food mixture, cosmetics, and medicines. Bamboo charcoal contains mineral contents such as potassium, calcium, iron and sodium. Combining with Konjac, the absorptive carbon of the bamboo charcoal eliminates oil, draws dirt and excess sebum out of pores which keep the skin clean and sparkle.
Makeup Addict spotted an article about ‘charcoal sponges‘ that said they exfoliate as well as clean. They are supposed to assist in keeping pores clean – thus keeping blackheads, etc. at bay. They sound heaven-sent to someone like me with huge pores. I have to get my hands on some of these Japanese Charcoal Konjac Sponges and see if they live up to their reputation.
