What a buy! Seriously cheap products (all of them had some sort of discount to them)- with quality that definitely surprised me, especially for their price.
I'll definitely do a thorough review of all these products but today I will doing it on the Muraqi Konjac sponge.
|It's a love heart! :)|
However while I was on Sasa, I decided to have a look if they had Konjac sponges! They did, but not the Kuu brand. I got the Muraqi one for $4.50, half the price of the Kuu! But the different branded Konjac sponges should be very similar, shouldn't they?How Does KUU Konjac Sponge Work?The KUU Konjac Sponge gently cleanses and soothes the skin by removing dirt and oil, naturally restoring the pH level of the skin. Cleansing helps to stimulate blood flow and encourage new skin cells, revitalising the complexion without damaging the skin.The KUU Konjac sponge is highly absorbent in both water and oils and is excellent for thorough cleansing of impurities. The pH level of the sponge is an alkaline and has the function to break down dirt and neautralise acidic and oily areas.After just one use you will feel the difference by cleansing with the KUU Konjac Sponge, your skin will feel revitalised and your skin care routine will have been transformed.
And if there's anyone who can read Japanese that's willing to translate this for me, please do? :D
I was the most excited to try out the sponge as I had heard so many good reviews on it! How could a sponge and water alone possibly make skin nice and soft? When I took it out of the packaging it was soft and moist, and wow it felt very nice. My verdict? It's such a novel experience! It felt very gentle on the skin and the heart shape actually made it contour to my face. The most oddest feeling was squeezing the water out of the sponge, it was sort of "slimy". That was when I realised there must be just magic happening in the sponge, haha! (No, I didn't use cleanser on it, just water). Has it made my skin better? Well I can't actually tell but the sponge has made my skin a little softer, plus it is so gentle on the skin and fun to use!
Perhaps one day I will purchase the Kuu Konjac sponges, if they ever have an offer or if I see it instore somewhere. And I'll definitely be doing reviews for the other products in the near future!
Who has tried Konjac sponges before? Or if you haven't, are you interested in them?
