Oleavine Konjac Facial Sponge Review

I was so excited to try out this 100% Plant Based Konjac Sponge in Original White from Oleavine! I'm not much of a product junkie or beauty buff, but I am always looking for great products that will save me time and are gentle on my sensitive skin. I am extremely satisfied with this, and knowing that it's safe for the whole family to use means I'll definitely be a repeat customer!
I had no idea what to expect with this product, but am loving what it's doing for my skin and am totally hooked. My skin has always been an issue with breakouts and unevenness, but after about a week I started noticing that my skin was softer and my breakouts were fewer and further between. The best part for me is the fact that you can use this sponge without any facial cleanser! My skin is so sensitive and with the dryness that comes along with winter weather, my face wash seems to leave my skin feeling overly dry and tight. Being able to skip the cleanser and just use the sponge and still getting a great clean is awesome.
Another huge benefit to Oleavine's facial sponges are that they gently prep your skin to boost the absorption of your favorite moisturizer or serum. I've found that my moisturizer seems to be more effective now that I apply it after exfoliating with my Original White Konjac Sponge, which means I can use less and it's lasting longer, which also means I'm buying it less frequently and saving money - yay!
The teardrop shape and the size of the Konjac Sponge makes for easy handling and exfoliating, especially around my eyes and nose, which are usually difficult to reach with other contraptions. While it's amazing for my face, it's also great in the shower as an all over, gentle body exfoliator. The sponge is soft enough that it doesn't scratch, but still leaves my knees and elbows feeling extra soft!

Using and caring for the Oleavine Konjac Facial Sponges is super easy: Just run it under warm water until soft, then massage it over your face (or body) in circular motions, paying special attention to problem areas. Afterwards, run the sponge under warm water again and gently squeeze it between your palms to squeeze out the water - do not wring the sponge as it can damage the fibers. Finally, hang the sponge from the attached string - that's it! 

There are currently 4 different types of Oleavine Exfoliating Beauty Sponges: Bamboo Charcoal, Original Pure (the one I tried), French Red Clay, and French Green Clay available on Amazon
