Konjac sponges are actually all the range in Japan. And with the 3 colors, you get 3 different kinds to try! The black one (charcoal) is meant for acne / blackheads, the green one (green tea) is meant for mature / damaged skin, and the white one is for gentle skin (i.e. babies) Cut into these adorable heart shapes, before using you’re supposed to soak it in warm water, & wait for the sponge to expand. Then you can use them on your face to exfoliate, then rinse, & then simply press them between your hands to expel the water & hang them to dry. I read an article that you can use them for about a month, here they claim you can use it up to 3 months. Because they’re made from natural plant fibers, they’re biodegradable! You can just toss these into your garden when you’re done with them!

That’s a good deal considering sonic brushes can cost in the hundreds. That’s another thing I have yet to try but will in the near future. Here are some suggestions if you’d like to try an affordable microdermabrasion brushes:
