I was sent this konjac sponge set by Pegasus Guild Limited for free for a review.
This is another lovely gift set from The Beauty Shelf. This sponge set comes in a lovely heart shaped box that already just make it a lovely present for somebody. Inside the box you get 3 konjac sponges along with a thank you card and an information card on how to care and use the sponges.
Each konjac sponge is individually wrapped in plastic to preserve it and is a lovely heart shape. Each sponge looks a bit like a feather-light pumice stone to start with, but you need to soak it in water for a few minutes to make it nearly double in size. Now the sponge is ready to use!
I love the white sets of konjac sponges as they are perfect for sensitive skin and contain no additives. You can use the sponges just as they are, but if you are not a fan of the new smell they have, simply use a little cleanser (at least the first time) to make the sponge adopt the smell of your favourite products instead.
The sponges are so wonderful and I’ve become a convert to konjac! They are really soft on the skin, far softer than any synthetic sponge, and so moisturising. It’s strange but they actually do make my skin feel as though I have used some cream…at the same time as cleansing!
When you are finished cleansing you simply press out the water gently, following the instructions, and then you can hang up the sponge using the little string loop that each sponge has.
I love konjac even more so now that I know it comes from a plant. It’s not only an ethical product but also vegan friendly, so great if you are giving this set as a gift to somebody who is green or vegan!🙂
Overall I can recommend this set to anyone looking to give a lovely pampering product to their family, friends or even to themselves. It’s presented in such a lovely way. The sponges themselves are really so lovely and soft to use and they really do seem to work. And I just love the heart shape which just feels so lovely to use and really feels great if you received this as a gift from someone! A great item I can recommend.🙂
