Cheap & Eco Friendly Clarisonic Alternative : The Konjac Sponge
So excited that I’ve finally been able to try one of these little beauties!
I’ve been wanting one since I did this post back in June and so when the lovely ladies from BeautyHabit offered to send me one for review, I was SO thrilled!
Of course I had to use it the very first day when I got it in the mail and it doesn’t disappoint!
First off, I was kind of bummed I didn’t get one of the clay enhanced ones at first, but now I really like this one because it is so versatile. It’s not tied down to one skin type or whatever like the clay-enriched ones are and so any skin type can use it and it can be used with a cleanser of your choice as well which works great.
I really love this tool! It’s such a no brainer type of cleansing tool / cleanser in one. I actually think it would be especially brilliant for someone who wants an easy skin routine and even for guys because it’s exfoliating, cleansing, softening and hydrating all in one product!
The first time I used this, my face felt so super soft, refreshed, cleansed, brightened and hydrated and I used it just as it comes straight out of the packaging with no added cleansers or anything. I’ve since tried it with various cleansers, all with really nice results. I’ve also oil cleansed and then used this and it was great as well.
It’s just such an easy cleansing tool to use and although it won’t give you facial-like deep cleansing results that a Clarisonic will, this is an awesome alternative for people on a budget who want something that cleans well without any irritation or dryness! It really works well to cleanse your face in a super simple way. You can also use this on your body as well and it’s really nice, though small, and gentle exfoliates so for those, like me, who have sensitive skin this is a nice alternative to a loofah.
I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone, especially those who want a simple routine, have very sensitive skin and also guys. This is something I will absolutely purchase (actually, ironically I have it in another tab as we speak LOL) because it’s so versatile, it can be used on anyone and it’s the easiest way to get clean skin without causing irritation or having to think too hard about it. Another thing I really dig about using this sponge is that it’s super eco friendly, 100% biodegradable and sustainable so I don’t have to worry about any waste accumulating from my using it.
These are meant to last up to 6 months, but if they start to break down then they recommend you replace it. Also, it has kind of a very subtle strange smell to it, but it’s not too noticeable really, especially if you’re adding your own cleanser to the sponge when you use this.

As weird as it may sound (for the 1 guy or so out there who is reading this! Thanks, by the way! :-D) , I really think these would be a godsend for guys out there who want easy cleansing. I forced my boyfriend to try this, as I usually do with everything I try much to his displeasure, and he actually liked it. It’s not difficult to use and it gets the job done. You can easily pick one with your skin type and you may not even have to use a moisturizer if you don’t want (though I recommend you do use one and some sunscreen if you want to be one of those hot older guys, otherwise power on the fast track to wrecked-face-ville, by all means).
Anyone else who wants to use this can and should as well because it’s super affordable $9 USD so even the cheapest bargain hunter scrooges of the world can spring for one! Aside from that, it works really well and your skin will certainly thank you.
