Revisit | The Original Konjac Puff Sponge

Just an update.

Last December I finally started using my Konjac Sponge in earnest. I promised to let you know how I got on with it so here it is: absolutely worth it.

As I said in the original post, I think this is a great gentle exfoliator tool for those with sensitive skin. If you wear makeup daily I'd still recommend something more heavy duty like the Clarisonic but this could still be worked into your morning routine.

I love the Konjac Sponge because it makes all my cream or gel cleansers last much longer. I think you can double the life of something like the First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser. You already need so little of that product to do the job but with a sponge nothing is absorbed into the material and wasted.

I can't speak for the other types of konjac sponges; some cost much less and thus are easier on the pocket to repurchase, but I am surely a fan of this brand. Mine is ready for retirement but in all fairness it has been in use since December and it was only supposed to last three months.

Certainly going to repurchase.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.
