Notice Board: The Konjac Sponge with Red Clay Review

Its been a while......................

I've had a lot going on during the last 2½ months in my personal life, with loved ones in and out of hospital and a few worrying moments. We're not out of the woods yet but things are starting to get back to normal. Let's just hope 2015 can bring us all health and happiness :o)

In a previous post I told you I spent a couple of hours at the West Midlands Vegan Festival, which was a welcome distraction. I came away with so many goodies, I was a human pack horse!

One of the items I came away with was a konjac sponge and I'm in love with it! I chose the red clay one, which is perfect for dry, mature or sensitive skin.

I got mine from the fabulous I Choose What I Use, go and check out all the vegan products they sell on their website 

I've been using my konjac sponge in the morning so I have no make up on, and I would recommend taking off your make up before use. You don't need any soap when using the sponge as it naturally cleanses your skin, but you can if you want. One word of advice reduce the amount of soap you use as it keeps on giving!

My skin looks and feels amazing, I even feel like I'm glowing! Normally during the winter months I suffer with dry skin and with all the stress I've been under, worrying about my family and over two months of hospital visits I thought my skin would suffer. 

I know my diet is obviously better than it has been previously thanks to the amount of goodness a vegan diet provides but I really do believe that the konjac sponge has helped too. I've used it nearly every day and your skin feels clean and refreshed after using. You really won't believe how soft it is against your skin, I just love it!

The konjac sponge looks rather shrivelled when it is dry but don't let that put you off.

Once you've soaked in water it will look more like a sponge. 

If you've never heard of them, konjac is a type of potato from Asia and over the last century its properties as a beauty treatment has been recognised. We're some what 1,500 years behind the Japanese with this one! The Japenese originally used konjac as a medicine in the sixth century.

The konjac is a naturally moisture rich plant fibre which is alkaline, which balances the acidity of the skins impurities and oils. Red clay is said to help with regeneration so a fabulous combination.

The konjac sponge is 100% natural, colour free, additive free, biodegradable, environmentally safe, naturally sustainable and it moisturises naturally. Why would you not want one? 

There are four different ones to choose from, click here to take you to the page

  • The Konjac Sponge Co - 100% Pure Sponge (All Skin Types)
  • The Konjac Sponge Co - Pink Clay Sponge (Tired/Devitalized Skin)
  • The Konjac Sponge Co - Red Clay Sponge (Dry/Mature/Sensitive Skin)
  • The Konjac Sponge Co - Green Clay Sponge (Combination Skin)

There's still time to order too as the last post is Thursday 18th December for 2nd class and Friday 19th December for 1st class, but I personally wouldn't leave it that late, so drop on by I Choose What I Use and go and treat yourself and your loved ones to a konjac sponge. 


  1. You've sold it to me, I've just ordered one. Sounds just like what my skin needs at the moment. I've also just made your great baked feta recipe and am looking forward to that for lunch :) Hope things settle down for for you and best wishes for a good 2015 x

    1. Thank you! You won't be sorry, the konjac sponge is my new beauty best friend! :o) Hope you like the baked almond cheese, I make it every couple of weeks and love it chopped up in a salad or on crackers with a little vegan garlic mayonnaise, I'm getting hungry now! Just about to make a nut roast.....getting ready for Christmas! :o) x

  2. When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are
    added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is
    added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment. Is there a
    way you can remove me from that service? Thank you!
