For ages I have been drawn to all things Asian-market-iconic, which are often extraordinary in their effectiveness, though sometimes quite unusual form factors - the Jason-like sheet masks are a fine example, and so are Konjac sponges.
Konjac is similar to a natural sea sponge, although those are animals (it’s true) and live under water, and this is a plant that grows, ya know, out of the ground. If you’ve ever had yam cake - same jam (literally). They are exfoliating in a very delicate way, and make your cleanser foam in an excellently fluffy manner.
The super-chic skincare brand Sjal has uncovered this gooey jem/jam and put it inside their excellent Rose Aura Cleansing Set, which is a great gift for yourself someone who is looking to upgrade their skincare regime, because it’s ideal for all skin types - and the product looks crazy elegant on your their bathroom shelf.
