I recently had the opportunity to review a beauty sponge from Oleavine. Oleavine's 100% Plant Based Konjac Sponges come in 4 choices: Bamboo Charcoal Infused, French Green Clay Infused, Original Pure White, and the one that I reviewed, French Red Clay Infused! Each one of them is used for a different purpose. They all gently exfoliate, deep clean, detoxify, refresh, and naturally moisturize. Per their site, " The Konjac used in our beauty sponge is grown on the volcanic plains of UNESCO protected Jeju Island in South Korea."
The Bamboo Charcoal Infused sponge works best for oily and blemish prone skin. It helps with getting rid of excess oils and with fighting the acne-causing bacteria. The French Red Clay Infused sponge works best for dry, sensitive, and mature skin, by stimulating circulation and helping with skin regeneration. I really liked this one, my skin felt soft and clean after using it. No dryness at all! The best way that I could put it was like, WOW! A very gentle cleansing! To continue one with the next infused one... the French Green Clay Infused sponge helps to draw out excess oils, dirt and bacteria from the oily T-zone and combination skins. The Original Pure White can be used on anyone's skin, even babies and children! It is so gentle!
What you do with the sponge is you rinse or soak it in order to get it to its full size, absorbing water. Next you cleanse your face with it by gently massaging it with the sponge. I didn't use any cleansers with it, but you can if you choose. Rinse your face. and pat dry. Then you gently squeeze the sponge between your palms, no wringing it. You can air dry it by hanging it from the string on the top of it. I'd definitely recommend these!!
