I grew up in a loofah family, and honestly, I hated it. No matter how long it had been soaked or which body wash I used with it, it always felt so harsh and scratchy on my super sensitive skin.
When I entered my adult years, so did a bright pink shower pouf (or whatever other neon color the store was carrying at the moment). But these $1.99 poufs would quickly fall apart (they would literally unravel), and I don’t even want to talk about the materials used to mass-produce one of these.
So when a seasoned Pooshie came across the Orijin Body Sponge, I jumped at the opportunity to test it out.
Available in three addictive infusions, these 100% all-natural, biodegradable sponges are made from the root of the konjac plant and last around three to four months with regular use.
Konjac 101: This fibrous perennial root grows naturally at high altitudes in Asia and has been known within Japanese culture since the sixth century.
The classic bamboo-charcoal infusion is antimicrobial. It gently exfoliates, reduces oil, and balances your pH, deep-cleaning your pores for a clear complexion. French clay is rich in minerals and helps unclog pores while keeping you hydrated, fresh, and balanced. And matcha green tea is packed with vitamins B2 and E that support firm, supple, and smooth skin. I pair mine with my favorite supervitamin body wash, but they also work great solo.
So the only question next is, which one will you choose?
Oh, and did we mention this Poosh-approved fave also comes in an antimicrobial facial sponge? And *mic drop* it’s only $10.
