Konjac Cleansing Sponge by Boscia

A gentle exfoliator for smoother, brighter skin, this cleansing sponge is formulated with Korean Konjac Root, which is said to absorb impurities, and green clay to remove excess oil and reduce inflammation. Gentle enough for sensitive skin, this sponge cleanses away makeup and debris and lasts two to three months.

“What I liked most about the sponge was its texture and how well it cleaned my skin. I would highly recommend to a friend!”
—Beauty Buzz Member Alice Hannigan, 22, Arnold
