Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

Wow. I was just looking around and came across this! It's NEW and AMAZING!

I so need this in my life! I've been looking into buying some Muslin clothes to use while cleansing but i need this instead! There's a video about it underneath the picture on the page! 

Here is the link

http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?skuId=1544030&productId=P382345

 

So anyways, it says:

What it is:
A pillow-soft sponge that cleanses and exfoliates to deliver smoother, softer, brighter-looking skin

 

What it is formulated to do:
As the leader in botanical science, Boscia continues to innovate with Japanese heritage in mind. The Konjac Cleansing Sponge is 100 percent Konjac Root, an Asian-cultivated, root-based vegetable that the Japanese have traditionally used as a detoxifying dietary staple, and as a calming, naturally exfoliating sponge for delicate skin. Gentle enough for the most sensitive skin types, this naturally deep-cleansing, pH balanced sponge can be used throughout the face, neck, and even the very delicate undereye area.

 

Has anyone heard of it, Used it, thinking about getting it?

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

I still would buy the Boscia one here from sephora for numerous reasons.

1. I can afford it

2. I get Points

3. I'll get samples with my order and promo code offer.

 

I think the bosica is a winner for me regardless of any of the stuff you pointed out! I'm not being disrespectful in any way Smiley Happy

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

Well those are good reasons to buy the one from Sephora. I'm just overly frugal with my money . The points thing doesn't do me that much good, mainly because I don't spend enough . Some things are nice but some things they offer as point rewards companies will give you for free. As far as samples go many Ebay sellers give you three free samples as well and when you buy a certain amount they give you freebies. So same basic principal.

 

 

I'm just more interested to try a Asian one personally. Mainly because my experience has been that the U.S. versions usually aren't as good (BB creams). 

 

I'm not trying to be disrespectful either. Though I'm well aware most people on the internet take just about everything I say that way (it's because it's the internet and my personality). Oh, the unintended fights I get into when I'm not even trying to.........That's why I post here, most people on Beauty Talk are sensible.

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

I understand. But i use points for Lipstick perks and things like that. I think they are completely worth it. I'm pretty picky about what samples i want though. I just can't purchase form Ebay. I don't trust it and care to try. 

Don't worry, i didn't take at all disrespectfully. Your just expressing your opinions. 

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

Interesting.  I've been on a huge Korean & Japanese skincare and makeup kick, and I've seen tons of these sponges (often without much description, or poorly-translated information that's hilarious to read) online for super, SUPER cheap.  I tend to stay away from E-bay, but go for reputable online vendors (misshaus.com; testerkorea.com; en.koreadepart.com; etc.), so I'm not worried about the quality/authenticity of what I purchase.

Not gonna lie--when I saw this sponge and its price, I was pretty pissed off.  A ton of high-quality, name-brand, Asian skincare products are pretty darn cheap, so brands like Boscia (whose products are most likely MUCH cheaper in their native Japan) who take the exact same items and jack up the prices and take advantage of an ignorant Western market really annoy me.

I understand the lure of purchasing products to gain VIB points and whatnot, but I currently have over 700 points--AFTER redeeming a large portion recently.  It's super easy to gain points for Western products that are unique to our market, but I refuse to waste my hard-earned $$$ on things that I can easily obtain at a fraction of the cost.

Skips off to check out what will undoubtedly be some of her new favorite sites.

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

Huzzah!  Enjoy!

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

I picked it up when I saw it because I wanted it and was too lazy to look anywhere else for a better buy.  The jury is still out on whether or not it is doing me any good.  I always expect to see results about 30 seconds after I use something for the first time Smiley Happy 

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

Personally, I like it...My skin seems to be in changing mode lately, probably due to climate change or, ehm, age! I did not find it to be harsh feeling, at all. I do use Clarisonic, but never more than once a day or moreso recently, every other. This is nice for the other times. It surely beats using face washing cloth!

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

Laneige makes a sponge that's just like it! I have one....I wish I could take a picture of it but I'm at work right now. =(

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

missha also offers one called Missha Konjac Natural Soft Jelly Cleansing Puff - Bamboo Charcoal and they have a regular white one too. I found it on amazon!

 

For some reason it keeps saying upload failed so I can't upload my laneige one =(

 

 

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

Aw That's okay, I'm sure those interested can google it! Thanks for sharing!

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

Julep has one too, but its super expensive.

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

I added it to my box last month for just $8. 

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

I almost did that but I kept telling myself that I didn't need it.
