A sponge for your face?


     Most of the girls I know have used the Clarisonic brushes, it is quite expensive and not necessarily effective on everyone. It worked for me but I had to deal with months of extreme breakouts first. When I forget to use it for awhile, I wasn't going to pick it back up and deal with the same thing again.

     After some research online, I bumped into this little guy- Dew Puff Konjac Sponge, Original . This is a chemical free all natural product that feels extremely soft and squishy! Sometimes, I just like to squeeze it. Weird. I know. It's made of a planet native to Asia, the konjac. The planet has the natural ability to improve circulation, detoxify and exfoliate. All of these AND gentle enough for everyday use. It sounds too good to be true! I purchased this on Amazon about a months ago and I have been loving it! I am not sure about improved circulation but my skin feels baby soft. Also, major bonus point- I have stopped breaking out after using this to wash my face! It was about $ 7.00 when I purchased but now it's about $ 10.00. (Boo!)  Still, it's a reasonable price for something you only have to switch out every 3 months.

     My recent routine:

     1) Remove makeup. I use the Johnson and Johnson Baby Oil for Kids, Aloe Vera, 16.9 Ounce / 500 ML (Pack of 2) to remove eye makeup (cheap, gentle, effective). I use the Simple Facial Wipes, Cleansing 25 ct, Twin Pack for the face.
     2) Then I use Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser, 16 Ounces to realllyyyyy remove the makeup (Apply with hands). Rinse face.
     3) It depends on the day but for days when I know I need extra clean, I use a half a penny size drop of the Beauty Without Cruelty A.H.A. 3% Facial Cleanser, 8.5 ozs. (December 2014 IPSY product!) on the dew puff with circular motion and gently apply on face. If I do not need extra clean, I would just use a dime size of the Philosophy One-Step Cleanser (Also been my favorite for years!) on the puff and clean away.
    4) Every weekend, I use the dew puff with Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Foaming Scrub, Pink Grapefruit, 4.2 Ounce. I love this scrub, it smells so amazing and it really refreshes my skin at the end of the week.
   5) Apply facial serum, lotion or whatever regime you prefer! (I will talk about my routine in a later post)

   Since this little puff is so popular now, they have came out with the bamboo charcoal, asian clay, french pink clay...and varies other versions. I will definitely give them a try and let you guys know!


-Until Next time-

XOXO,
