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?

Oh interesting! DO IT! Smiley Happy

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

@Jaimelove,  the Julep boxes are a subscription, right? In that case, No-Buy exempt. So I don't really see that adding an $8 item really hurts.......

 

That was really shameful of me wasn't it? 

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

haha maybe, but since it's a sub i had already come to that conclusion Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

Oh wow .. Sephora finally has Konjac sponge. I have been using this for several months now and really love it. I purchased it from Amazon and the brand I use is My Konjac Sponge. Their shape is water drop and looks the same as Julep's.

 

I also did try the half ball shape too but I didn't like it. It takes much longer time to dry and I was concerned with mold growing and hygienic issue.

 

I just searched YouTube for how to properly use and care for the sponge and this is a good one. She actually uses the same brand as mine.

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

I had never heard of these sponges till i googled Konjac, I NEED it!

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

I use muslin cloths with my first wash, while removing makeup. This way I ensure I get everything off before I use my "treatment" cleanser. I did add the Julep sponge to my box this month & I'm excited to try it out. My only issue is I have a fear of sponges. They are a breading ground for bacteria so I try to avoid them. At least the clothes can be thrown in the wash, I guess with the sponge you can zap it in the microwave like you would a kitchen sponge.

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

You could soak in boiling water maybe to get rid of bacteria??? Or would it ruin it??

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

I also added one to my Julep box this month, and I am excited to try it out!

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

I copy/pasted my review of the sponge that I posted yesterday in the No Buy thread (how ironic!):


I just used it this evening and I really like it! I've really been needing this without even realizing it until arielaaaaaa posted about it! My pet peeve is sometimes even after double cleansing, the washcloth I dry my face on STILL ends up having traces of foundation on it. An easy fix is to also use a washcloth to cleanse but I just don't like doing that. The Boscia Sponge is the perfect solution!

it's a cute little half-dome that fits right in the palm of my hand. It's a lot more aerated than your normal kitchen sponge, a lot like a loofah but soooooo soft! It's spongy and bouncy and soft on my face, and I used the flat side over most of my face (with my CeraVe foaming cleanser) then flipped it around and the dome side works well in my eye area.

The last time I used my Clarisonic, when I applied a glycolic acid toner after cleaning, my whole face stung. Today after using The Sponge and applying the same toner, there was no stinging! Yay!

@arielaaaaaaaa -- so glad you enabled me to get the Sponge! Smiley Very Happy

 

and today's update: the sponge was hanging overnight but the inside of it was still damp this morning although the outside had dried.  

Re: Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

So you used a cleanser with it even though it has a cleanser inside?
