Though I’m a big fan of my Clarisonic cleansing brush (click here to see the post on it), I don’t take it with me on trips. Lately I’ve been spending quite a bit of time traveling and feel like my skin had suffered a bit. When I was shopping in a Japanese market, I saw a display with konjac sponges and since I had heard great things about them, decided to give one a try.
I loved it and told my mom about it. She tried one and liked it so much that she bought them for her friends, who all raved about this unique cleansing product.
Made from a konnyaku potato, these sponges are formed, dried shirataki noodles. They’re gentle, yet exfoliate well, contain all sorts of vitamins and minerals, and my skin felt softer after using it.
Best of all, they can be purchased at Japanese markets for around $2-$3. They are pricier, however, on Amazon.com, but I’ve included a link for those who don’t have access to a Japanese market (click here).
As always, I receive no compensation for endorsing this product.
