|Boscia Sponge - $18|
Lately my combination skin has been a bit oily and blemish prone so I've tried to look at my skincare regime and alter it. One product I've looked at countless times, only to back out at the last minute are Konjac sponge's. In an attempt to keep my blemishes at bay I decided to this Boscia one from Sephora.
Made from 100% Asian Konjac Root and infused with Black Bamboo Charcoal, the sponge aims to both cleanse and exfoliate, so gentle it is suitable even if you have super sensitive skin! Charcoal is having a bit of a moment in the beauty industry, and is said to help fight acne and even absorb thousands of times it's own mass many harmful substances. Stating that regular use can help draw out impurities and remove blemish-causing bacteria, this seemed like it was the answer to my prayers, and I have to admit, it has made a difference.
In order to use the sponge, you simple rinse it in warm water before applying your chosen cleanser and using it to massage your skin in a circular motion, before rinsing cleaning and hanging it to dry before the next use. Replacing my muslin cloths, I've notice a massive difference in my pore size and the frequency of blemishes. Although I've had one or two blemishes, these have been minute, and I think might be down to just been a little under the weather. My skin has gradually gotten it's glow back, and I definitely feel comfortable in going days with minimal, if any, base makeup on.
I am absolutely obsessed with this, and will definitely be replacing mine in 2-3 months. If you're not planning on making a big Sephora order and don't want to face the shipping charge, Cult Beauty are selling one here, along with other Konjac sponges infused with different things to focus on specific concerns, although I'm not sure if they are from Boscia.
Have you tried a Konjac sponge? What do you think?
