For those of you who read my last review on konjac sponges you will know that I love them! For those of you who haven’t yet heard of a konjac sponge this will be a review on Dew Puff konjac sponges.
Konjac is an ancient plant indigenous to Asia and has been utilized in Japan for hundreds of years for cooking and skin care. Now making its way across North America konjac sponges are becoming a popular part of the beauty industry. Konjac spongs are made directly from the roots of the pant making these products 100% natural and chemical free.
These sponges are safe to use on sensitive skin and very gentle. They also help balance the pH of the skin creating a layer of water between sponge and skin which allows the puff to glide effortlessly across the face. I love the way these sponges feel on my skin, I use them in a small circular buffing motion and they slip and slid over my face leaving behind nothing but softness.
The first sponge I am going to review is the bamboo charcoal sponge. This sponge contains natural anti-oxidants and is suitable for blemish prone skin.
This sponge comes sealed in a package and the texture is hard and porous when it arrives. When you soak it in water it becomes soft and spongy and I love the abundance of water it absorbs! My favorite way to use these is on clean makeup free skin right in the shower. I glide it all over my face and my skin feels incredibly soft and fresh, similar to the feeling I achieve after I have done a facial but with a lot less effort. This sponge does not have much of a scent, but smells slightly earthy.
The next sponge I received is the original dew puff. This sponge is suitable for all skin types and it can be used with a cleanser.
I have used the puff with my cleanser and it did work up a nice lather and provided a more through cleanse compared to using my hands alone but I still prefer to use it without any cleansers at all. I have also used this sponge on my entire body and after shaving to make my skin feel hydrated and soft. This sponge does not have much of a scent.
The last sponge is called Asian clay and it uses “the ancient benefits of clay for removing impurities to provide a healthy glow.”
I like that these puffs provide a gentile exfoliation and smooth out the texture of my skin before I apply my makeup for the day. I usually can’t exfoliate or use gritty products very often because it irritates my skin, but I can use my dew puff every day to make my skin feel wonderful.
All of these puffs worked quite similarly for me even though they are meant for different things so it is hard to say which one I liked the most because I like them all. I recommend trying the one you think will work best for your skin type. These puffs when used twice daily will last 3 months, I only use mine once per day.
To clean your puff you can boil it for 2 mins or microwave a wet puff for 1 min. Any longer than this and you can burn your puff so follow the directions. After you use your puff squeeze it and hang to dry. I find that rinsing my puff with water is enough to clean it because I use my puff on clean skin.
I know a lot of people will be getting a dew puff in their stocking this holiday season because it safe for the whole family!
