Konyaku For Your Face?

Hello, lovelies~ Last month, I was contacted by a company called My Konjac Sponge to try out their products, which are sponges used to wash the face. A bit unusual for my skin care routine, but I am willing to give it a try, especially if it's quirky in its own way.

The origin of the sponge is from a plant Amorphophallus Konjac, better known as the Konjac Potato. It goes by Konyaku in Japan, now that is more of a familiar name, isn't it? Those squishy, jelly like desserts that we consume after a meal. This sponge is made from that same plant, which consisted of 97% water and 3% fiber (glucomannan). 
Great. Now I want dorayaki seeing from the sides. -___-
They sent the product yesterday and I've received it today. They have five different types of sponges, each having their own unique property. The sponge I received is the Korean Ocher sponge, which claims to be soothing, cleansing, smoothing and anti aging. That's quite a promise coming from a sponge, but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. 
It hangs beautifully alongside my other things (another sponge and face wash net)
So, I'll be posting a weekly update for a month on how my skin is doing with this product, look forward to that. After the month is up, I'll do a proper review on the product itself, the usual pros and cons. So far, it feels really squishy and light.
How it looks like dry and damp
