      Comments about Julep Charcoal Konjac Sponge:

      I decided I wanted to start double cleansing and I'm not a huge fan of using my Clarisonic twice a day. So I bought some facial cleansing oil from Trader Joes and then bought this sponge. I am always using my own cleanser and it's working great with the sponge. I like how after I use the cleansing oil and then follow with the sponge my skin feels very soft and clean. The sponge isn't too abrasive but has good cleansing action. Like others say, the hanger is a bust but that's not an issue for me. I'm sure I will be buying this again still. Big notice was that it really helped get all my make up off!

        I got this product after it was recommended from one of the employees at Ulta. I wanted a spinning face brush, but she said this would work better for my sensitive skin. She was right! This is one of the best face products I've ever used. It gets my face clean and feels super soft after.

        Not Exfoliating

        It's a good way to massage cleanser into your face but it does not exfoliate

        Great Idea but Needs Some Teeth

        By living4mydyingwish

        from undisclosed

        Comments about Julep Charcoal Konjac Sponge:

        The charcoal part is great, wonderful way to help really deeply clean your face. Plus it's a natural (mostly) way to detoxify the junk trapped in your pores. For me though, be it my skin or my opinion, is it's just not "exfoliating" at all. I do have keritosis so I need more intense exfoliating than others but it wasn't anything more than a soft, squishy sponge. I've tried the others that are for your face & all of them seemed to fall apart fairly quickly, especially this body sized one.

                I was ready to give up on exfoliating sponges because each once I used either to hard , to rough or just all together broke my face out and left with burns . This sponge made my face feel clean and softer I think I have to rack up

                  Okay for you doubters out there-like me-it's hard to believe but this sponge really works! Not sure 'how' but it does. I've been using it for 3 weeks and I notice my skin is softer and clearer that it has been in sometime(?) I'm a bit of a skeptic when it comes to new things like a charcoal sponge making a difference but now that I've seen the results myself I will continue to buy them. I use mine daily at the end of my shower.

                        A:

                        Yes! You can use the Charcoal Konjac Sponge in lieu of your loofah. The sponge still exfoliate your skin, it's just gentler and softer. It comes in two sizes, the smaller we recommend for your face and the larger one for your body since it covers more surface area. Although the only difference is in size, it's also best to keep sponge uses separate since they absorb product and most likely you are using different products on your face vs. your body!
                        Enjoy!

                        After using the Charcoal Konjac Sponge rinse both your face and sponge, then pat dry. The sponge acts as an all-natural, physical exfoliator so you'll want to rinse off dead skin cells after use.
