The humble konjac potato is one of Asia’s most prized medicinal, edible and therapeutic plants. It has an amazing 97% water content and is just loaded with minerals and vitamins, making it a popular skin care treatment.

- Cleanses the skin of dirt, excess oils & impurities

- Prevents premature ageing
- Hydrates & rejuvenates dry or dull skin
- Stimulates circulation & cell regeneration

2 out of 2 people would recommend this product29/05/2018, By BrendaLove this sponge, I have been using it in the morning and a different konjacu sponge in the evening and my skin is feeling very cared for.28/05/2018, By CristinaLove the fact that it's a zero-plastic product and entirely of natural origin. Was very intrigued to use it given the Korean skincare trend but not seeing any amazing results. Have only used on clean skin as I dont want even light makeup to get stuck into it. Have used daily for more than a month and it hasnt started breaking apart etc so that's a plus. No skin dryness after use.
