REVIEW: KUU KONJAC SPONGES

Hey girls, 
This review is on an awesome company that I wanted to introduce you all to called Kuu Konjac which sells 100% natural sponges that; stimulate blood circulation, encourage new skin cells, cleanse and soothe. These awesome sponges are made from Konjac which is a traditional Japanese jelly-like health food made from a type of potato called "Konnyaku potato" and calcium hydroxide or oxide calcium. The Japanese have used the Konjac for more than a century, as a beauty treatment for their delicate skin.
 I was really excited to try this out because I have always personally thought that it's more beneficial to be gentle on your skin by using natural and basic products as opposed to corrosive exfoliators and harsh chemicals.These sponges are perfect for sensitive skin as they won't irritate. They are a soft and squishy consistency which feels really lovely on the skin. Something else that I thought was really cool about these sponges is that they are 100% handmade.
