Bikini Girl Approved: Daily Concepts Konjac Sponge
Beauty Tested, Bikini Girl Approved is a weekly review by the girls at Bikini.com. Between the entire team, we have tried thousands of beauty products over the years. Now we are sharing our insider knowledge with you!
The washcloth, the loofah, and now a sponge. But not just any sponge. The Konjac sponge. This, ladies, is your new must-have shower product.
Made from the root of a potato-like plant that grows in the mountains of Southwest China, the Konjac sponge when dry is rock hard. Wet, it feels rubbery and soft against the skin.
Here’s why it’s great. Konjac is highly rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and all of that helps prevent inflammation and acne. The other plus? The product is not tested on animals, is biodegradable, and doesn't contain chemicals.
Beauty brand Daily Concepts offers three types of the elusive miracle worker—the original, a charcoal sponge designed to exfoliate and detoxify the skin, and a hydrating turmeric version. All three are the same price, $18, and come in a miniature reusable plastic shower caddy. Pretty brilliant, actually.
The sponges can last up to three months. Just make sure to boil yours every few weeks. Like your standard loofah and washcloth, bacteria build-up happens.
Now go and get your Konjac on!
