Current Obsession: Konjac Charcoal Cleansing Sponges

Current Obsession: Konjac Charcoal Cleansing SpongesSome women prefer washing their faces with plain terry cloth, while others tend to be loyal to oscillating sonic brushes... Then there are those who aren't partial to either and open to trying other methods, much like the rather unconventional konjac cleansing sponge enriched with charcoal. (Clearly we fall within the category of the latter.)

Derived from the fiber-dense root of the vitamin-rich Japanese konjac plant, and formulated with detoxifying charcoal, this all-natural exfoliating sponge deep cleanses skin and draws out impacted dirt, excess sebum, and bacterial toxins—all of which clog pores and cause breakouts. Plus, it's not the slightest bit abrasive. In fact, it's gentle enough for twice-daily use on all skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone. Sold? Shop a few of our favorites below.
