At One Konjac Sponges Newzealand Review!!

Press Samples

Hey dearies,
There are some products that you are not so bothered about. There are products that you like to try. There are a few products that you fall in love with.
I am going to talk about a product that falls in the third category.
When it comes to beauty, I believe the three words CTM is  most important. It is challenging to indulge in a CTM routine that is not so expensive, time taking and at the same time it needs to be effective.
How about an all in one product to make your task easy. So here comes the Konjac Sponges in our scene. I wrote about Konjac Sponge from Buyincoins here. I will be talking about At One Konjac Sponges from New Zealand today.

Directions for use:

Massage the sponge in circular motions on your face.Use soaps unless you really want. Should you chose to use additional cleansers or soap, you can use a fraction of your usual amount, as the sponge will generate more bubbles and spread the cleaner further than usual.

My Take on the Product:

Amorphophallus Konjac or the KONJAC POTATO is a perennial plant, native to Asia and sometimes known as Konnyaku. Frequently growing wild at very high altitude, thus being very pure and pollutant free.It is a totally natural food source. Ninety seven percent of Konjac is water and three percent is Glucomannan, or dietary fiber.
For over a century, the Japanese have been using the konjac vegetable as a beauty treatment for their delicate skin. Amorphophallus konjac is an alkaline and is loaded with goodness. It contains so many natural goodies, like Protein, carbohydrate, iron, phosphorus, copper, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin D, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin C and folic acid.The At One Konjac Sponges comes in a cool packaging. The sponges are put into white re-sealable bags.

The sponges are dry and in semi circle shape except for the aloe vera one which is moist and tear drop shaped. All these sponges are face sponges.The sponges are smaller when dry and once it gets in touch with water, it starts enlarging. The At One konjac sponges are flavored and they come in the respective color of their flavors. They smell similar to their flavors.
It is these flavors that makes the At One Konjac Sponges very special and unique. The facial sponges are available in 12 flavors and the body sponges come in six flavors. The sponges come with a thread using which you can hang them to a hook to dry else there are chances for bacterial growth when the sponges are wet. Make sure you dry them well.

The sponges cleanse and exfoliate well. The flavored ones are hydrating too. You can use your moisturizer if you have dry skin. The sponges helps to get rid off black heads, white heads, dry pimples, flaky dead skin. Thus, it gives a smooth flawless skin over use. It also absorbs excess sebum.
It helps to keep your pores clean as well and slowly it will diminish. These konjac sponges are mild and gentle on skin unless you are not rubbing too hard. These do not feel scratchy and abrasive.During the initial days of use, I had few breakouts but it was as if my skin is pouring out the entire toxins and waste. After a week of use, my face became clear.  It suits all skin types.

One sponge lasts for about three months. It is cheap and long lasting. The results are comparable with the Clarisonic Mia.These sponges are skin and eco friendly. These are natural and safe to use. It is easy to use,store and hold these sponges.It is infact an inexpensive alternative to electronic facial cleansing brushes like MIA.
My skin looks healthy and soft after using these konjac sponges for a month. It is suggested to use a different sponge for morning and night so that it helps to balance out the skin.Since these are flavored there is no need of using cleansers. You can use a cleanser still but I don’t coz I read somewhere that it reduces the life of the sponge.

Overall Thoughts:

The unique net like structure of the sponge, gently massages the skin and stimulates blood flow and new growth of skin cells, leaving the skin extremely clean and refreshed naturally! I am so hooked on to these sponges.
I recommend you to try atleast two of these sponges. You will feel the difference yourself. I get a feel like my skin is awaken and breathing.
