Oleavine Konjac Sponge: Reviewed

I am loving Konjac sponges lately. I have one that is a bit more firm that I use on my face, and another more firm one for my chest area, as I sometimes get a line from sleeping on my side. I use a third one on my infant for his bathtime. Some konjac sponges are a little more stiff and scrubby than others. I use an ultra soft one for my little 6 month old. This one is ergonomically shaped to fit well into the palm, and is gentle, yet works well for cleansing. I do not use much cleansing or sudsing agents on him, except for an occasional sulfate free, 100% natural calendula and essential oil based wash. I use a lot of jojoba oil, sweet almond, and calendula to keep his skin supple and smooth.

The konjac sponge that I use on my baby is from Oleavine and is shaped like a teardrop to allow gentle exfoliation around sensitive or hard to reach areas on the face such as around eyes and the nose. Since I use this for my son, he still has a few plump baby areas, such as folds and rolls under armpits, legs, knees, belly, neck, back, etc. This works well for gently cleaning him, and is is relaxing to him to feel a warm soft sponge. This has no added dyes or colorants, it is 100% natural and often I just use this sponge and warm water to clean him in his little tub of warm water.

For those using this on their face, this sponge does have the added benefit of Bamboo Charcoal, which contains activated carbon and minerals that purify, cleanse, supply antioxidants, and help draw out acne-causing bacteria. This is 100% Plant Based and using Konjac Sponges for facial and body cleansing has been a long tradition in Asian cultures. When I use my sponges, which is usually daily, my face has a nice glowing and healthy look to it. It is not irritated, or red.

I have not used a cleanser on the sponge directly. When I use the sponge for my baby, the tub water has a little bit of non soap, non chemical baby wash and I dip this into the water. It is important to take care of your sponge, and hang it up after using it. Gently wring it out after use, so as not to cause mold. You should replace your sponge every 2-3 months, and sooner if it tears. I have not had any problem with any of my sponges having a bad smell to them. They always smell fresh and still look new after weeks of use.

I really like this sponge and when I have used konjac sponges in the past on my face, serums and makeup foundations apply much smoother and with ease. On my baby, after he is washed and rinsed, I like to put some jojoba oil drops on my hands and massage into his skin.
