100% Plant Based Konjac Sponge - French Red Clay by Oleavine




I love these sponges.  I have tried a few of them and they really are a great addition to any skincare routine.  Lately, I have been using & alternating between the White & French Red Clay ones that Oleavine sent me to review for them.
If you haven't heard of a Konjac Sponge yet they are basically facial cleansing sponges that are all natural, eco-freindly and biodegradable (like you can throw it out in your backyard when your done with it kind of eco-freindly and biodegradable) that will exfoliate, cleanse, and the natural fibers help absorb excess oils, impurities and acne causing bacteria while leaving your face refreshed and radiant.  
The four different sponges are White, Red, Green & Black.  The White or Original is perfect for all skin types and even children.  Red is infused with French Red Clay and helps stimulate blood circulation and accelerate skin regeneration, leaving radiant and hydrated skin, perfect for all but really great for dry, sensitive or mature skin.  Green which is infused with French Green Clay and has antiseptic properties, is rich in minerals, and has natural absorbent properties that draw out excess oils, dirt and bacteria, especially effective for combination and oily t-zone skin.  Finally, Black (which I have done a review on as well and you can read that, here) is infused with Bamboo Charcoal and contains activated carbon and minerals that purify, supply antioxidants, help draw out excess oils and fight hard-to-reach acne-causing bacteria, especially effective for oily and acne-prone skin types.


The sponges last for about 6 weeks and you can even place them in the microwave to sanitize the sponge, just place a WET sponge in a bowl full of water, then microwave it for 1 minute while monitoring it.  You should never microwave dry or slightly damp sponge.  Carefully remove the sponge or simply leave it for few minutes until it cools off.  Once cool, rinse it with running water and then allow to dry.  Just make sure you follow directions exactly or you could damage the sponge.

To purchase one of these innovative sponges go to Oleavine.com or you can also purchase at Amazon.com.  The best part is if you are not 100% Satisfied Oleavine has a 90-day Money Back Guarantee!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.  Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
