PURESOL Konjac Facial Sponge with Bamboo Charcoal : Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Hi, my darlings! I have a rather unusual product to review for you all today--When I came across this product in one of my blogger networks, I applied to review it out of a sheer sense of curiosity. I'm talking about the the PureSOL Konjac Facial Sponge. This unique, all-natural sponge is gentle enough to use on the sensitive skin of your face but hardy enough to really exfoliate your skin. Ready to see what piqued my curiosity and if this product lives up to its claims? =)

Before we begin, let's take a quick look at the product description and the brand's claims :

Konjac is a moisture rich plant fibre which is by nature alkaline, and thus balances the acidity of the skin's impurities and oils. The unique net like structure of the sponge gently massages the skin, breaks down dirt, stimulates blood flow and new growth of skin cells. Leaving the skin extremely clean and refreshed!

pureSOL Konjac Sponge is unbelievably soft and excellent for all skin types! It is made of 100% pure vegetable fiber and processed without any coloring or additives, great for hypersensitive skin!

  • IMPROVES SKIN TEXTURE: pureSOL Konjac Facial Sponge gently exfoliates while deep cleansing and removing any toxins and impurities, leaving you with a radiant complexion. It is extremely soft and gentle for everyday skin care. Great for all skin types.
  • BRIGHTER LOOKING SKIN: The natural woven fibers of the sponge gently massage the skin and stimulate blood flow. It detoxifies and encourages skin renewal while balancing the skins pH, leaving your skin extremely clean and refreshed!
  • PREVENTS SPOTS, BLACKHEADS AND BREAKOUTS: The added BAMBOO CHARCOAL contains activated carbon and essential minerals to deeply cleanse and absorb excess sebum, toxins and other harmful chemicals from your skin. You will see your pores getting smaller, tightening and brightening your skin.
  • 100% NATURAL AND ECO-FRIENDLY: Why compromise your health with products that contain harsh chemicals and additives on your skin? pureSOL Konjac Sponge is completely natural, eco-friendly and free of parabens, sulphates & chemicals. It is biodegrade, cruelty free and vegan. After use, you can compost the sponge and feel good about the environment! You can even add it to your flower pot! At pureSOL our packaging is 90% compostable
  • EASY-TO- HANG SUCTION HOOK: A must have for you konjac sponge! Perfect for hanging in a well-ventilated space so it's dry and ready for you to use the following day. No more searching for something to hang your pureSOL Konjac Sponge on!

USE : According to the instructions on the back, I soaked the sponge in warm water until it became soft and malleable. Then I gently massaged my face with the sponge, first without and then with my regular cleanser, for a couple of minutes and then rinsed my face with lukewarm water. Take a look at how the sponge swells and softens once soaked!

IMPRESSIONS : I approached this product skeptically at best, especially when I opened the package and felt how rough to the touch the dry sponge was. But don't let that fool you, like it did me! After a good soaking, the sponge becomes wonderfully soft and feels really gentle on the skin. My skin definitely felt smoother after using it along with my regular cleanser, for a couple of weeks, in the shower. I also love the little hook that's included--makes maintenance and drying a breeze! I'm actually very pleased with this product and fully intend to keep using it for its lifetime!

So there you have it, my darlings! If you would like to pick up your very own PureSOL Konjac sponge, you can find it on Amazon HERE for the price of the very affordable price of $10.95!

  1. I have a similar charcoal one from Boscia via Sephora, which I love...will definitely consider this as an alternative. Also got a Dr Sponge body sized one from Amazon (with lycopene, it was the only version available in Subscribe and Save), but have only used it once.

    I definitely feel like the face one has helped my oily skin and large pores, just seems overall better and brighter...been using it a month or two I think, and I always look forward to using it.

    Thanks for the review!

    1. Oh thanks for the feedback! =) It's good to know there are other alternatives out there that people love!
