My skin gets, like… really mad at me sometimes. Of course, irritation leads to breakouts, and the nasty cycle of topical torture continues. I’ve been to find some natural and effective, emphasis on the effective, options for cleansers, exfoliators, and skin care in general, in order to mitigate my skin’s temper. I picked up a sample for a new pure plant fiber sponge called Dew Puff, and as I learn more about it, I’m becoming a bigger and bigger fan.
Dew Puff Face and Body Cleansing Sponges are 100% plant-based skin tools. We’re talking completely chemical-free. Their sole ingredient is konjac root, aka elepham yam or kon-nyaku in Japanese (fun fact), which when hydrated, makes the sponges exceptionally soft yet gently exfoliating, while creating a perfect pH balance on the surface of the skin. Konjac root is a plant native to Asia, and it’s been used for thousands of years in food– and hundreds of years in Japan for beautiful skin.
Even though I’d never heard of this root thing before, whatever Japanese women to use to perfect their gorgeous porcelean skin, I need in my life. How does it work? I’m not entirely sure. I do know, however, that it’s imperative to add water to the sponge before experiencing this wonderous Asian secret for modern skincare. The hydrated fiber sponge apparently creates a layer of water between the sponge and the skin, allowing it to “hydroplane,” to thoroughly cleanse your skin in an easier, less painful, and more organic way.
There are three varities of Dew Puffs: Original— particularly for sensitive skin to be used with your own cleanser, Bamboo Charcoal— ideal for oily and blemished skin (bingo), this formula imparts all the detoxifying properties of charcoal, which side note: I’ve recently become super into, and Asian Clay— perfect for anti-aging efforts, the Asian Clay delivers the healing qualities of clay for glowing skin through the cleansing of impurities and support of changing, aging skin.
Also, since they’re all-natural and what not, Dew Puff Cleansing Sponges are completely biodegradable and compostable. Dew Puff is still relatively new in the United States, so although their family of retailers is growing daily, I highly encourage ordering online to make sure you lock down the one(s) you want to try. The sponges are $8, and it’s encouraged to replace them every 3 months. For that type of financial investment in modern beauty technology, they’re definitely worth a try!
If you’ve ever tried one, let me know what you think!
