In the Limelight: ReveN Bath M Konjac Volcanic Stone Facial Sponge Product Review

How was your Halloween and long weekend, everyone? It has been a month since I last updated my blog. I thought I was already on my way back to regular blogging but I needed time to adjust to my new role in the organization I'm working at. And this blogging burn out has been going on for quite some time now. Nevertheless, I felt the need to not totally let this blog go so I'm back with a product review for ReveN Bath M Konjac Volcanic Stone Facial Sponge. I received this last August from Updated Trends and decided against reviewing it right away until I have fully tested whether it is effective or not and here it is.

*Made from 100% pure vegetable fiber, using the world most famous Jeju in Korea (registered as UNESCO World Heritage Site). Excellent for all skin types even those with hypersensitive skin.
  • 100% Natural Sponge
  • 100% Coloring and Addictive Free
  • 100% Biodegradable
  • Naturally Sustainable
  • Outstanding Moisturizing
  • Exfoliating
  • Anti - Bacterial
  • Minimize Pores
  • Attract Abudance
  • Naturally Sustainable
  • Refresh the Skin

Better for your skin, better on the environment and better for babies too!

*Taken from Updated Trends

What I like:
  • Initially, I thought this was good for "oily skin" but as it turns out, this is for those with sensitive skin. Turns out to work just fine because lately, my combination-oily skin has been experiencing hypersensitivity these past few months and most products made for oily skin proved to be a little harsh for me. This one is gentle enough and does not strip the moisture off my face.
  • Paired with Cetaphil, this does not cause any irritation to my skin, leaving it soft and supple after cleansing.
  • This gently exfoliates my skin and it looks radiant each time.
  • Does not cause any allergic reaction to my face.
  • I like that it is natural and biodegradable. See, the word "natural" sometimes make me take a step back before putting it anywhere near my face due to my less than pleasant experiences with such products but this did a fab job.
  • One sponge is good for 3-4 months use. Mine is 3 months and a half old and is still usable.
  • Locally available online for only Php 365.

What I don't like:
  • I made the mistake of squeezing the water out of it just a little too much and the pointed part just literally crumbled on my hand. Now I cannot use that part and that happens to be my fave because the shape is just right for my nose. So please do not make the same mistake that I did. :(

Overall rating: 4.5/5

Will I buy again? Yes though I will try a different one. It'll turn 4 months by mid-November and I am definitely going to try the charcoal one which is for oily skin. I hope it won't be too harsh for my skin though.

Other: When I first opened it, I noticed that the sponge was damp. I don't know what to make of it but it was a bit weird but it does not have any bad smell at all. When dry, it can be really hard that its like a very lightweight stone.

Full size when damp.

Have you tried konjac sponges? How do you find it?

Have a great weekend, guys and gals! :)
