So Eco Charcoal Face Sponge is the perfect cleaner which can be used on both the face and body. The sponge helps to eliminate any dirt or leftover makeup, helping to keep the skin exfoliated. Ideal for those with oily, spot-prone skin. With added charcoal, the sponge works to leave skin feeling revitalised after use.

What is a Konjac Sponge?

The Konjac sponge is a gentle exfoliating sponge made from the konjac root, which is a porous root vegetable that grows in Asia. Once a Konjac sponge gets wet, it has a rubbery almost slimey texture, and is 100% natural and plant-based. They’re ideal for daily use as they’re a lot more gentle than a facial scrub or chemical exfoliator, and they can be used on sensitive skin, dry skin and rosacea. They can be used with your favourite cleanser and water to cleanse the skin, and remove makeup. When the sponge is dry, it becomes hard and solid. However, as soon as you add water, the sponge becomes very soft and rubbery.

The So Eco Konjac Sponge is fully biodegradable and sustainable, free from chemicals and irritants too. When you open the packet, the sponge comes wet which did weird me out a little as the inside of the packet was wet. But I guess it’s so you can see how soft and spongy the texture is whilst it’s in the packet. It has a teardrop shape and a cotton loop, allowing you to be able to hang it up to dry after use.

I honestly don’t understand how these sponges work as they’re so effective at buffing the skin, but it doesn’t feel textured so it’s crazy to me that it can be so effective at exfoliation. I’ve tried konjac sponges in the past, and know they don’t last particularly well as they are natural fibres, but they’re affordable so it’s not too pricey to replace them.
