What Is a Konjac Sponge?

Can your skin feel more intensely clean just by washing your face differently? It can – if you add a konjac sponge to your cleansing routine. Crafted from the konjac root, a vegetable from Asia, the konjac sponge is a super-gentle, super-effective exfoliator.

Originally created for washing babies’ delicate skin, it has a naturally soft, porous texture that gently lifts debris away, to help reveal the smooth, fresh face that lies beneath. Say hello to glowing skin without having to add another step to your routine. 

Doubling up with a deep cleanser, you can really heighten the konjac sponge’s exfoliating properties. Paired with the Garnier Organics Fresh Lemongrass Detox Gel Wash, the duo has a polishing effect, smoothing your skin's surface and leaving a glow that lasts. The combination lifts away the dead skin cells that can get in the way of your natural radiance. Konjac sponges are also good for gently exfoliating sensitive skin that can sometimes not react well to certain scrubs or peels; use it daily with your cleanser to get a glow that’s close to the effects of a weekly scrub or peel.

And you can use your konjac sponge alongside the organic Garnier Organics Fresh Lemongrass Detox Gel to up its anti-pollution effects. The sponge’s unique structure helps remove stubborn pollution residue and impurities that can become lodged on the surface of your skin. Meanwhile, the organic lemongrass essential oil in this expertly crafted formula is known for own purifying properties. Together, they’re a pretty formidable pair.

No matter your skin type, if you’re still chasing that glow, then try this simple, fun-to-use natural tool. It’ll up the effects of your skin care routine without taking up any more of your time.
