My First Time using Wyld Skincare

I don't know about you, but for me, the cooler weather calls for a bit more exfoliation since my skin gets so dry and flaky. As much as I try to keep hydrated and moisturized, there are still certain areas that never seem to stay smooth! My trouble areas are my nose, forehead and legs. UGH! I like a good scrub, but sometimes I use a cleanser that doesn't have any exfoliating properties. To give these cleansers an extra boost, I use a konjac sponge from Wyld skincare. I was sent the new konjac bamboo charcoal sponge to try from the lovely Wyld skincare team (THANKS A MILLION GUYS!) and I absolutely love it!

This sponge was something strange to me at first. First let me explain what konjac is. Konjac (pronounced KOHN-YAK) in a perennial plant known in Japan since the sixth century and has been eaten for 1500 years. It is currently grown in China, Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and southeast Asia, primarily for flour, jelly and a vegan substitute for gelatin.

The Wyld konjac sponge is

  • 100% natural
  • biodegradable
  • vegan 
  • fragrance and chemical free
  • cruelty free
  • eco-friendly
After using this miracle sponge, my skin felt squeaky clean and exfoliated. The dead skin on my nose was gently buffed away and my skin looked brighter and smoother. This could be because the konjac sponge is infused with natural activated bamboo charcoal which draws out excess oil and bacteria. There are only two ingredients: natural konjac root and natural bamboo charcoal. That's really it!

This sponge is hard at first and needs to be softened with water before you use it. There's a small space in the middle of the sponge that I use to measure how much cleanser I should use. Once I measured the cleanser, I used small circular motions to massage my face. I really like how this sponge worked with other cleansers but you can even use this sponge on its own if you prefer. I got a nice lather and massage all in one step! LOOOOVE!!! I liked how my face felt squeaky clean, but not stripped or raw. There was just the perfect amount of exfoliating action happening here! 

After cleansing and rinsing the sponge, I gently squeezed out the excess water and let it air dry. There's a convenient string attached to the sponge so you can hang it :) Once it's dry, the sponge will harden again and over time it will lose its shape. If you're a fan of konjac sponges you should replace them every 1-2 months. 

I love my Wyld konjac sponge and if you're looking for a natural, biodegradable, vegan and chemical free sponge, you should check out Wyld skincare at https://www.wyldskincare.com/
