La Lune Naturals Konjac Sponge Review + Giveaway!!

*I received this product free for testing and reviewing purposes. All opinions expressed are 100% my own*

I don't typically get home until 10 PM most nights, so by time I'm actually ready for bed it's not only super late but I'm super beat. Which is why my night time skin care routine is pathetically simple and is probably shocking since I'm a beauty blogger. I clean my makeup off, put eye gel, lotion, and maybe some serum or spot treatment on then I crash for the night. I never exfoliate because I just don't have the time to, which means my skin isn't always that great looking. I've been hearing about konjac sponges off and on for the last few months so when I was offered a chance to test them out and review them I was super excited to see what all of the buzz was about.

To show you the size of my unopened one, here is is next to my computer mouse.
If you are like me, you probably have no idea what a konjac actually is. I had to Google it, I'd never heard of it before. So konjac is this really interesting looking plant that is used in Japan for food, the roots are kind of like a yam. So the konjac sponges are a lot like a loofah, a beauty product made from plant fibers. The La Lune ones are 100% pure konjac, so no worries about weird chemicals at all. What you do is soak it in water until it has softened up, press the water out, then use a circular motion to massage it all over your face.

Dried out, ready to be soaked

These sponges are actually really soft once they absorb the water, so I scoffed at the idea of it exfoliating my skin at all. I have never been so wrong. Thing about this as a fine grit sandpaper to polish your skin into the soft and gleaming work of art we all know it is. My skin has never looked better since I started using these, I've actually had complete strangers stop me to ask me what I'm using for skin care because my skin looks so great. And because its so gentle I can use it every day and every night without my sensitive skin getting all red and agitated. Since I'm not using any sort of cream or gel or whatever this added step takes me all of a minute so I'm not sacrificing sleep for an exfoliation treatment at all.

All wet and ready to perform magic on my face.
These should be replaced about every 2-3 months, so to make things easier on you La Lune sells them in a double pack. My time is valuable to me, so being about to go longer between having to buy more is a huge plus in my book. I'd seriously get a Costco size box of these if I could, I'm not exaggerating at all over how much of a difference these have made on my skin. No more gross dry patch between my eyebrows, and I feel like this absorbs the oil off my skin too so I've been having less acne outbreaks. If you would like to purchase some for your self they are available on for $12.99 with free Prime shipping (as of the time of this writing), which isn't bad for two sponges. They also come with a suction cup hook so you can hang the one you are using from your bathroom mirror, which I thought was a nice touch.
