Hi all!!!

I’m back with My Konjac Sponge and other brand which is said to be konjac sponge as well.

I can’t find anything wrong in the details given with the X brand but it feel so different with My Konjac Sponge.

-*-





I have 4 items, 2 from My Konjac Sponge and 2 from X brand. 2 items for body usage, 2 for facial in bamboo charcoal type or My Konjac Sponge in Bamboo Charcoal infused and the other one look similar to the other.

-*-


The back side and details are somewhat the same, it is a trivia but I know for sure that My Konjac Sponge is a real konjac sponge from a fellow Korean. I’m not sure and clueless about the X brand. I know for sure there are a lot of ‘konjac sponge’ in the market, when I went abroad or looking at cosmetics store there are some other konjac sponge, but the X brand look quite similar than those found in the market, so let’s just test them out.

Here are more images of the konjac sponges for body .

And for facial use (bamboo charcoal type).

-*-



Let’s open the packaging and see the product.

The one for the body:

Above is the image of both  product for the body when dry.

My Konjac Sponge has bigger pores and lighter. X brand konjac sponge is heavier, around 2-3x the weight from My Konjac Sponge. Denser, more curves/waves, and feels firmer than My Konjac Sponge.

-*-





Under the sponges is the palm of my hand. When wet, My Konjac Sponge appears to be more transparent than X brand. My Konjac Sponge also absorbed more water than X brand.

-*-




When looked X brand have tidier shape than hand made My Konjac Sponge. My Konjac Sponge feels softer on the skin, squishier, and create larger bubbles foam than X brand.

Now let’s see the one for facial usage.

-*-



The shape is different, My Konjac Sponge appeared to be more expanded than X brand. But somehow still lighter. Below are the images when the products are dried.

-*-


My Konjac Sponge (image above) when dried compared to the when moist. The dried almost lost it shape and wrinkled here and there, hmm, almost twisted as well. While X brand (below), doesn’t loose it’s shape, just become smaller, stiffer and lighter.

-*-



And these are the konjacs in action, using a liquid soap to help the visibility of how it work. My Konjac Sponge gives more lathering action and finer foam, while X brand give less. Same goes with the body sponge. I use the facial sponge for demo purpose as the dark-black sponges are more contrast with the white foam.

-*-



Bottom line, they are both seems like not a same product even thou with the same name, konjac sponge. One delivers better result than the other. Personally, I like My Konjac Sponge better, the foam it create is more abundant and finer. On the skin the sponge feels softer, especially the one for facial. Maybe my body have a thick skin, so I didn’t find any significant differences when rubbed, but My Konjac Sponge (again) gives more bubbling action than the other.

I can’t say the other one is not real konjac sponge, but I prefer My Konjac Sponge which I’ve been using for months and quite satisfy with the result it delivers. Multifunction, universal and unisex. I use it for daily cleansing with facial foam, to help remove facial mask, when having a fever (as a compress), and other usage as well.
