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.

Hi everyone,

this item is no stranger in the beauty world, I have know and used it around 5 years now and the Sleeping Pack has gain favors from a lot of customers and reviewers around the world.

-*-

This is the travel size edition.

Laneige philosophy are based on water, where hydrated skin is the best condition skin. Plump, dewy and visibly moist. Ms. Song, the brand ambassador is famous for her youthful skin, perfect for Laneige image where proper hydration can keep the skin young and healthy.

-*-



Now, before starting with any of your skincare regime, make sure to clean your hands even thou’ starting the regime with cleansing. So the product may do they job precisely at facial area. Imagine the hands already so dirty, the cleansing agent already so busy cleaning the hands before even touching the face. This cutie is an antibacterial hand soap which I use before taking care of the face.

-*-


Now, let’s move on to Laneige Water Sleeping Pack _ EX, all product details from www.laneige.com.

After the face is cleaned, you may use toner/lotion and then apply the Sleeping Pack generously to the whole area, for me I like to massage them a bit before leaving them on. Just make sure all the wonderful slightly creamy gel is distributed and there’s a thin layer left after massaging.

-*-



The night time hydrating system will help the skin to regenerate, rehydrate, boosting their performance and adding moist to the skin so the lines are filled up. The skin become elastic and this is what we called young.

You may read the ingredients and other benefits directly from the website and I’ll share with you my personal experience in using it.

-*-





I remember vividly as 5 years ago, I’m still in my 20’s I use the Sleeping Pack and waiting for the pack to be absorbed, or at least sunk in the skin, so I can twist and turn during bedtime. Little that I know back then that a little massaging action goes along the way. And 30 minutes before bedtime also helps in making sure the pack has set, so most of the nutrients ended up absorbed by my facial skin instead of by the pillows.

-*-




I love the texture of something imitating a gooey-ness, the light blue milky color and faint scent is suitable for introducing a night full of wonderful dreams and waking up looking hydrated, fresh and ready for the day.
