Konjac Sponge by Dew Puff Review

Have you heard of konjac sponges? They sound strange but they're my favorite skincare accessory to use. If you like natural and effective products, I highly recommend trying the Konjac Sponges from Dew Puff!

*Disclaimer: These products were sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

The Dew Puff sponges are all-natural skin cleansing for all skin types. They're made from 100% plant-based konjac root, also known as elephant yam or kon-nyaku in Japanese. Konjac has many uses, but in regards to skincare it's been used as a facial massage accessory in Korea and is now gaining a lot of popularity elsewhere. It's great as exfoliating tool because it's much more gentle on even the most sensitive skin types than other options.

The sponges are firm when dry but become soft and puffy when wet. They create a perfect pH balance on your skin and renew and brighten without any harmful irritation. I absolutely love how gentle and soothing these feel; it really is like getting a mini facial massage every time!

The Dew Puffs come in three options, and my favorite is the Bamboo Charcoal Dew Puff. It's infused with, you guessed it, bamboo charcoal and is great for oily and blemished skin. You don't even need to use a separate cleanser with it, but you can if you want to. I like to use this in the shower to gently run over my face for morning cleansing. No lie, I have been using this for only a week and the acne and blemishes I had been fighting for about a month have already started to clear up!

The Asian Clay Dew Puff is great for dry, flaky skin but I like it for my oily skin because clay is great for oil absorption as well. It's infused with Asian clay and removes impurities for a healthy glow. It helps stimulate skin cells and absorb impurities below the pore level. I have been using this on opposite days of when I use the Bamboo Charcoal Dew Puff and the combo of the two has done wonders for my skin!

The Original Dew Puff is great for all skin types and is even gentle enough to use on baby's skin. This one doesn't have any extra infusions but is just as soothing as the Bamboo Charcoal and Asian Clay. All three can be used with a cleanser, but this one is probably best for that since it doesn't have any extra additives.

Dew Puffs are easy to use. I run mine under warm water until it's fully damp and then press out any extra water by pushing it in between both hands (the instructions advise not to wring this out, like in a twisting motion). I then massage it across my face without cleanser first, then I add a drop of cleanser and run it over my face again. Be sure to thoroughly wash out the cleanser after using the sponge and allow it to fully dry before using it again. I recommend buying two, that way you can use one every day because they do take about 24 hours to fully dry out again/
Bottom Line: I love all three Dew Puffs! They are so pillowy and soft and I've already noticed an improvement on my skin. My blemishes are resolving and I really think it's because these do an excellent job of removing makeup and cleansing without being abrasive.
