Friends, gather ye round for the second in our weeklong series of holiday giveaways. And today is a favorite. Why? BECAUSE I USE THESE RELIGIOUSLY. Any natural skincare devotee prays at the altar of the konjac sponge. While all the beauty world is abuzz about chemical-laden Korean beauty, the natural, baller konjac sponge has been an Asian beauty secret that leads to a truly glowing and happy complexion.
Get to Know Dew Puff
The Konjac root – also known as elephant yam or kon-nyaku in Japanese – is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a root. And you’re probably wondering WHY U TELL ME TO PUT A ROOT ON MY FACE? Listen up – when hydrated, these natural sponges become exceptionally soft, yet gently exfoliating, while creating a perfect pH balance on the surface of the skin. Regular use brightens and evens your skin tone without irritation, NO BULL. And Dew Puff makes the best. They’re larger to cover more surface area (say, your body, or when you’re too lazy to do multiple swipes of your face), soft enough to remove stubborn eye makeup without irritation, and they last 3+ months with regular use (like, 2 times a day regular use).
This miracle sponge is also naturally anti-microbial, so it won’t redistribute bacteria on your face like a regular sponge or washcloth will. Moreover, these are THE BEST sponges to use if you’re a fan of oil cleansing. If you need a refresher or tutorial, I adore this one by Elizabeth Dehn of Beauty Bets.
Because not all skin types are the same (duh), Dew Puff offers three varieties. And gentlemen, if you think all I do here is talk lady things, you are wrong. Hear my cry: Dudes love the Dew Puff.
The Original: Straight; no chaser. All pure Konjac sponge and nothing else. This is my personal favorite because I have hella sensitive, fair Irish skin. This version also works its simple magic on damn near everyone.
Asian Clay: Infused with natural red clay, this puff absorbs impurities and assists with anti-aging while cleansing. This version is awesome for more mature skin that might experience oiliness, combination issues, large pores, etc.
Bamboo Charcoal: Ideal for folks with more oily or large-pored complexions. If you experience consistent breakouts, this simply infused sponge is for you. Instead of loading your face up with chemicals that dry your skin out, try using this for 2 months and notice serious improvement.
All Dew Puffs are vegan, cruelty-free, and chemical-free. They travel beautifully (they air dry quickly and are so lightweight, they’re a dream to pack). I buy them by the truckload because I panic when I’m out – they’re just that good.
Once your Dew Puff has lived its life and served your face well (it gets small and shriveled like a little old man), you can toss it (it naturally biodegrades), but I like to use it at the bottom of plants. Why? Because it’s a root, so it naturally regulates water intake for certain planty friends. Just pop into a planter, top with the plant and dirt, and watch that puppy thrive even when you’ve skipped town for 3 weeks and no one has come to water the plants. Oops. THE CIRCLE OF LIFFFFFFFEEEEEE.
It’s also nice to know that the founders of Dew Puff, Masashi and Maya, are some of the nicest people ever. They’ve traveled the world to find the sturdiest and softest konjac and they want people to be happy. I always feel great supporting their product because they’re just so hot-damn awesome. As you guys know, I’m hella picky about who I work with and promote. Dew Puff’s made by good peeps. #LoveFest
