Soft + squishy when wet. Brittle + shriveled-up when totally dry.


  • Help remove stubborn eye makeup.
  • Totally natural.
  • Last a really long time!
  • Super-cost effective.


  • You have to have a place to hang them to dry + must re-saturate them before each use.
  • I wish they had a pointed end (similar to the Beauty Blender) to get closer to inner-eye corners.
  • I  need to add facial cleanser to the sponge to remove my makeup.

Final Thoughts

I came cross these cute little puffs while browsing on Spirit Beauty Lounge one day + was totally intrigued. If you know me, you know I tend to love any beauty products that involve clay, since it’s really good for detoxing your skin! A must in my beauty regimen. Out of sheer laziness, I usually use only facial cleanser + my hands to wash my face to remove my makeup… but that doesn’t always work out for me. Throughout the years, I’ve purchased tons of  super-expensive beauty cleansing tools that I really, really wanted + swore I’d use religiously… only to be stashed away + used for special occasion facials (ahem, Clarisonic Mia). The Konjac Sponge is different for me though… these are something I regularly keep by my bathroom sink + use it almost everyday! A miracle, I tell you. One thing the company mentions is that you don’t have to use any cleansers with it… I’ve found in the morning, I just wet the sponge + use it with nothing on it. At night, I need to add a cleanser to remove my makeup though. No biggie… I expected I would because I wear a lot of makeup. While they really do only exfoliate lightly, they somehow – really get the job done + are perfect for everyday use! They also have larger ones for your body + a flat round one, a little larger than a cosmetic compact sponge that you can apply makeup with, but I haven’t tried them yet. I have no idea how these work they way they do, but I love how incredibly soft, smooth + clean my skin feels after using them. Thanks Konjac Sponge Co.

    I just bought a pearl konjac sponge from Dr. Sponge so it’s great you posted about these! I know there are a few companies that have these and some are in different shapes (I saw a YouTube review) but not all have clay.

    I have combination, acneic skin. Which would you reccomend most for my skin type, the bamboo charcoal or french green clay one?

      Hi Dream & Scheme! I would say you could use either one. Lots of people love the Bamboo Charcoal one though! :) <3

      Hey Megha! Not sure…. you’d need to contact the company about that! They’d probably know better than I would. I just use mine until it starts falling apart. <3

    i found the Konjac sponge (not clay, just the regular natural one) in a tear drop shape in Japan, so that’s def a thing.
    It’s great for reaching in the corners of the eye and around the sides of the nose too.

    i found a bamboo charcoal one on amazon with the pointed tip.

    I love my facial sponges! The key is keeping them clean and dry, but these tend to air dry pretty quickly. Glad to see others loving their sponges as well.
