The Konjac Sponge 

That little brown thing (its actually black) in the picture above is how the konjac sponge looks like.

The Konjac Potato or Konnyaku is a native plant in Asia and can be found growing wild at very high altitudes. Konjac contains 97% water, is rich in minerals and low in calories which makes it a natural food source. Konjack is also pH neautral which therefere leaves your skin looking perfectly balanced. The konnyaku is over 1,500 years old and has been used as medicine, food, a beauty product. The Konjac sponge was orginally created for delicated baby skin.

Interesting right?

Apart from the history of the Konjac, it contains an endless amount of benefits:

  • 100% natural fibres
  • Packed with mineral and antioxidants
  • Its non- toxic
  • 100% cruelty free
  • Its made naturally and its environmentally safe

The konjac sponge has literally changed my life and my skin! Its extremely gentle on the skin and works so much better than scrubs and it can be used for daily exfoliation, you may use it with your face wash when washing your face daily. Once you use it with your face wash, whilst washing and exfoliating you will be able to gently remove your makeup, without a hustle. After using a Konjac sponge daily for a week, my skin was much smoother and a bit more radiant. I could definitely feel and see a difference in my skin, after using it just for a week and I know if my skin could speak it would be expressing its gratitude profusely.

How to use it: Soak the sponge in water until its softer and fully expanded. Then remove the excess water by gently pressing the sponge in between the palms of your hand. Use in a circular motion on your face for a few minutes.

If you don’t own one, you need to get your hands on one! Your skin will thank you later. Its a small investment to ensure you have beautiful skin each day. I, honestly cannot imagine how my skin has survived without the konjac all this time!

Ponds Perfect Colour Complex Review

Hello Dolls.

I do apologize once again for not regularly blogging or having a set day on which I put up blog posts. I will try and change that as soon as I have settled in and have worked on my schedule. I haven’t been doing enough product reviews, so I thought its about time I did one once again, and why not start off with a product which is a go-to product for many of us?

Yes, I’m sure you read the heading and know what product I’m talking about; The Ponds Skincare Range or rather specifically the Ponds Perfect Color Complex Range.

I’ve always been prone to uneven skin tone on my face and I have tried many products but to my dismay they haven’t really worked, I then came across Ponds and I could see drastic changes in my face which I was thrilled about!

I first came across Ponds a while back. I had been noticing that the African women had beautiful skin, it didn’t have any marks or pimples, it was so even and flawless they didn’t have to apply bottles of foundation and concealer. After I spent a considerable amount of time noticing this, I too wanted to be part of this beautiful skin clan and get my fair share of even skin, so when I went to Clicks I paid close attention to what skincare products they were using. I noticed that the majority of these ladies were buying Ponds.

Being the curious being that I am, I then also decided that I had to try these Ponds products as it seemed to be working wonders on different skin types. Thrilled at my decision, I rushed home with my purchase and started using the products immediately.

After a few days I noticed the difference in my skin, it was much more even and there was less marks, it was just brighter and prettier. Each day when I woke up, the changes on my face were even more noticeable and I, not once regretted my rash decision to purchase these products.

Skincare requires dedication and has to be carried out religiously every day. And well I don’t have the best track record for following a skincare regiment every day and some days I unintentionally miss these routines, I too missed a day or two of this skin care routine which I was following. I then noticed the change in my face!

I missed about two days of using the product and my skin was actually getting darker and it wasn’t looking pretty any longer, noticing these changes I then went back to using it and could see my face was back to being bright and beautiful. Intentionally a few days later, I decided not to use Ponds and within a few days my skin was darker and horrible and on some places my even skin tone was clearly visible. This is when I realized that my skin had become addicted to this product! I was so blinded by this beautiful skin that I was obtaining, I didn’t realize that without it my skin would never be the same and I would have to most likely dedicate my life to this product in order to keep up my skin looking good.

I understand that skincare routines have to be done each day, but once you have stopped using a product for a day or a few weeks it shouldn’t be leaving your skin in a state worst off then what is was before you used it.

These are just my thoughts and experiences of the product, have you had a similar experience with the Ponds skin care range?
