At GLOSSY, we believe that self-care always makes your day that little bit better. That’s why we’re treating you to a natural and sustainably-sourced cleansing konjac sponge by Karmameju for your thirteenth GLOSSYBOX ‘Advent Calendar’ gift. Use it as part of your daily me-time ritual to replenish your skin and feel radiant.

A Deeply Cleansing Sponge

Created to exfoliate oily and acne prone skin, the CHARCOAL KONJAC SPONGE by Karmameju is perfect for daily cleansing. This extra soft sponge is made using fibre from the root of Konjac, a Korean plant rich in essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids that unclog your pores and smooth your skin. It is also infused with activated carbon to purify your complexion and absorb excess oil. Blemish and breakout free skin, here we come!

A Quick How-To Guide For Your Konjac Sponge

When you first take the sponge out of its box, don’t be put off by the fact that it’s rock hard. Simply soak it thoroughly in warm water for 3 to 5 minutes before using it. This will give the sponge ample time to become soft.

As the sponge contains cleansing activated charcoal (an ingredient that makes the sponge more absorbent) you don’t need to apply any additional cleanser or skincare product to it. It will scrub away any excess oil or grime on its own. Simply massage it gently into your face, neck and upper chest in a circular motion. This will stimulate blood flow and encourage skin regeneration. When you’ve finished scrubbing, close your pores by splashing your face with cold water and then pat your skin dry.

Keeping Your Sponge Fresh: To keep your sponge fresh, clean it after each use and rinse it well. I’d also recommend sterilising it in boiling water once a week.

How Long Does It Last? A quick warning though Glossies, your sponge should last for 2 to 3 months but be sure to discard it as soon as it starts to break down.

Pure And Natural Skincare

Convinced that beauty is achieved through health and good skincare routines, Danish model Mette Skjaerbaek wanted to create a range of products based on nature’s ingredients – and so she founded Karmameju Skincare.

Using the ‘Karmalosophy’, this beauty brand creates pure, natural and active aromatherapeutic products with clinically proven ingredients and 100% natural fragrances.

Your Charcoal Konjac Sponge, for instance, is completely biodegradable and compostable. It is made from sustainable resources and can be used as an ecological alternative to plastic bottled cleanser paired with cotton pads, wipes or artificial sponges. Mother nature would be proud!
