I’m prone to KP on my arms and I’m always looking for something to help me exfoliate and this little sponge is fantastic. It softens up just the right amount and I use it with a SA scrub to help my KP. What a great combination! I got this sponge as a sample but I’m so happy I got to try it as I would not have known about it if I hadn’t!!
This product did not work for me, it barley remove hair, unlike other products that would completely remove all the hair with one application.
I purchased the legs and body wax strips thinking they were a cheaper and better alternative to the Nair strips as they had similar ingredient composition. However, when using the strips on my underarms and arms, I experienced bruising and bleeding despite my body hairs being at least 1/4 cm in length, applying in the same direction as my hair growth and pulling the strips in the opposite direction as quickly as I could. Instead of cleanly removing my hairs, the wax got stuck to my underarms and caused bleeding as the strip would pull the hair but not enough to de-root. Similarly, the wax strips have cause red bruises marks on my arms although the pulls were quicker as there was no over melted wax residue. I would NOT recommend this product to anyone. Save your money and purchase something better.
This wonderful Konjac sponge is a great way to gently exfoliate your skin. Using konjac root powder and walnut this helps buff away dead skin leaving it feeling so soft and smooth. As soon as you soak the sponge in water it softens. It works well with body wash lathering nicely and helps reduce ingrown hairs.
One side is less abrasive than the other. I use that one where skin tends to be more tough. On the bottom of my feet, knees and elbows. This sponge is made of 100% organic and natural ingredients and is biodegradable.
Who would have thought that a Konjac /walnut sponge would exfoliate and make my skin shine!! This sponge is very deceiving, at first touch it’s hard and feels like it would be very uncomfortable to use WRONG !! After wetting it and applying some body soap and rubbing my skin it became very soft yet firm enough for exfoliating. I also noticed that my skin was more receptive to the body lotion I apply for dry damaged skin. I did receive this Konjac Sponge free in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Parissa
This product was gifted to me by Parissa for my honest review. This was so shrunk up and hard when it arrived. I was pleased with its transition once it was wet. It takes a about 2 minutes for this to get totally soft from the water it absorbs. This is a perfect size for my hand to hold onto without unreasonably stretch my fingers out!. There's no effort involved in using this as it does the work for you. It's just rough enough to slough my dead skin but it doesn't feel abrasive. This absolutely made my skin feel much more soft and silky.
I know with its use, my skin will be better prepped for the next time I wax! And, when I'm done with it theres no storage issues has it has a handy string to hang it by. I love that is is totally natural & organic so I feel good about using it.
I certainly do recommend this product. These opinions are strictly mine and not influenced by anyone.
I had the opportunity to try the Exfoliating Konjac Sponge as a free product to review. This sponge works wonders! I loved how easily the sponge would lather with my body wash. But what’s awesome is that the soapy side lathers well and becomes super soft on your skin, where as the other side stays dry and is perfect for exfoliating. It’s the best combo! I’ve been using the Konjac Sponge 2-3 days a week and have definitely noticed a difference. My skin both feels and looks smoother. I’ve also noticed more consistency with my skin tone. I was a little worried that the crushed up walnut shells would be too abrasive, but that’s definitely not the case. I will be buying more Konjac Sponges in the future!
This is the best ever sponge I have used. It leaves your skin smooth and exfoliate the skin perfectly. I used it for 3 weeks and it’s still good to use for more days. Shape and texture made perfectly. I would definitely recommend it. Thank you Parissa for giving me the opportunity to try this.
I received this Exfoliating Konjac Sponge by @Parissa @parissawax for my review. I love that this is organic, gentle to use as it is so soft and other side is a little rough for anything on your body that needs a good scrubbing! I’ve used it few times, it leave my skin feeling so smooth and soft. The sponge is still in a good shape so it’s good to know that it lasts long to use anytime. I definitely recommend this and will be buying it soon! Warning ; the sponge is mixed with finely ground walnuts so if you’re allergic to nuts, please don’t use this.
I really hade a good experience trying out this Konjac sponge. This sponge works great by itself or with shower gel. The walnuts give such a gentle exfoliation of that are able to buff and exfoliate rough areas of skin without causing any abrasions to the skin. Totally love how this is a natural and organic option opposed to using liquid scrubs which have many ingredients often including fragrances and preservatives.

I was gifted this in exchange for my honest review thanks to @parissawax Well shall l just start with I loved it and I’ve already placed an order for more. I really appreciated that it’s organic and a biodegradable sponge. Made with Konjac Root Powder and Walnut. The Finely Ground Walnuts creates 8x the exfoliation of a regular sponge!
First impressions l was concerned on how rock solid it was. But I needn’t of worried once wet becomes incredibly soft. I was surprised that it felt so gentle against the skin yet still exfoliated. Removing my dry skin, help prevent trapped hairs and generally improving my overall skin texture.
Whilst rubbing over my body the contours of the sponge makes it quite relaxing and imagine it’s good for circulation (nice little massage). A good size very easy to hold in the palm of your hand. The hanging string is helpful whilst it drys.
Even after the first use, l could feel the difference. Recommend to be used 1-2 times a week to help with better skin turnover. Apparently works well when paired with Parissa Ingrown Rescue Soap and Ultra Soothe Oil for most optimal results. Which is available in a set with the sponge, so I’ve just placed an order to check that out!
Overall very happy and would recommend as long as you’re not allergic to walnuts.
I received this product in exchange for my honest review. It softened up under water and worked very well with a soap to exfoliate my skin. I find it to be a gentle enough exfoliator that makes it easy to use up to twice a week. I’m happy to use this to physically exfoliate my skin! Thanks Parissa Wax!
I got lucky enough to test out this exfoliating konjac sponge from @parissawax and give a review of my experience. This was my first time using a konjac sponge on my body instead of my face. This product when wet feels so much softer and gentler then the ones i have used on my face. The ridges make the exfoliating feel like a massage. Perfect size to fit in my hand and my skin felt so soft and buffed after use.
I absolutely love this exfoliating sponge. It effectively but gently exfoliates my skin, while leaving it so soft and smooth. I use my sponge to exfoliate my elbows, knees and legs, two times week and the difference is amazing. I really like the black hanging string attached to it, I use it to hang on shower caddy. I have already recommended the Konjac exfoliating sponge to my family and friends.
