You Need This In Your Life – Superdrug Dehydrated Facial Konjac Sponge

Hi there! Today’s post is about my new favourite beauty accessory – Superdrug’s Dehydrated Facial Konjac Sponge. I didn’t know what to expect because I’ve never used a konjac sponge before. I know they’ve been around for a while, but over the past couple of weeks I’ve read several blog posts in which fellow bloggers mentioned how much they loved their konjac sponges – and all of a sudden I wanted one! 🙂

And now I have my konjac sponge! Well, I bought 3 sponges – but there was a 3 for 2 offer. OK, let’s get to the product. This konjac sponge is made from pure vegetable fibres – I’m assuming it would be suitable for vegans. The sponge is dehydrated, so it has to be soaked in water for a few minutes before it can be used for the first time. But this is a one-time-thing, and from then on all you need to do is rinse the sponge under the tab for a few seconds – and it will be ready for use.
And what does the sponge do? This konjac sponge promises to exfoliate and to cleanse skin, and to improve circulation for clear and soft skin. And does it work? Yes, absolutely! All you have to do is use the sponge on your face – the same way you’d use any other sponge, flannel or washcloth.

Does it work with cleansing products? Yes. You can apply a drop of cleansing milk or face wash (or whatever you use to remove your make-up or to cleanse your face) to the moist sponge. Just rub it all over your face and you’ll see that it removes make-up, dirt and dead skin cells very well. Your skin will look and feel soft and clear. Awesome stuff!

Another good thing is that konjac sponges are gentle enough for daily use. Whilst harsh scrubs can damage skin, konjac sponges are perfectly suitable for dry, sensitive and flaky skin. And even people with rosacea can use them – because apparently they don’t irritate skin – at least that’s what a dermatologist told Allure magazine (I refer to this article). Personally, I believe these sponges are perfect for every day use – and I’ve made them part of my cleansing routine.

More good stuff: Konjac sponges are all natural, so when they fall apart you can compost them. 🙂 I’ll continue to use Superdrug’s konjac sponges – they’re £1.99 each, so they’re much better value than the “cheap” ones you can find on that auction web site or that online marketplace. 😉

Feel free to let me know what you think of konjac sponges. Do you love them too? For how long have you been using them? Or if you’ve never used konjac sponges before, will you give them a try? Please let me know your thoughts. And thanks for reading!

    • Hi Kathy! I remember your love for konjac sponges very well. I also remember that you buy yours in bulk from amazon. 🙂

      You were one of the two blogging buddies who convinced me that I needed to try konjac sponges. Thank you, thank you, thank. I’ll never be without a konjac sponge again. Thank you, thank you, thank you. xx


  1. I LOVE konjac sponges! I use one daily with my morning foaming cleanser.
    My favourite is the Face Shop one which is $5. I’ve probably been using them for 2 years now. They say you’re supposed to switch them up monthly but I don’t… 😳
    Here’s the post I did a while back on konjac sponges:
    Funny, my SO was cleaning out the fridge on the weekend and found one of the sponges in the back – asked me if he should toss it since it had moisture in it. He thought it’d “gone bad”. 😛

    • Ha! A few weeks ago I too wouldn’t have known what to do with a moist konjac sponge. 😉

      Stashy, you were one of two blogging buddies who convinced me to try konjac sponges. I don’t really remember whether we ‘discussed’ this or if you and Cat talked about it during the first podcast you did together… I really don’t know. But it was you and Kathy who convinced me to finally buy a konjac sponge. 🙂 And let me say thank you, thank you, thank you!! I’ll never be without a konjac sponge again. xoxo

        That’s the great thing about the blogging community – you can find some gems through peers. Now if only I can get my hands on those Boots / Superdrug branded, made in UK skincare! 😛

    • Yay! I’m glad you love your konjac sponge too! 🙂

      I’ve been using mine for two months (I just replaced it a few days ago) and it made a real difference to my skin. It’s so good and so inexpensive. And no more harsh exfoliation – but a gentle and effective cleansing tool for every day.

      I hope you continue to see improvements. 🙂
