This Charcoal Facial Sponge is made from the roots of the konyakku plant & infused with charcoal, for its added detoxifying properties. The sponge is ideal for daily use, especially for sensitive & acne-prone skin. For the first use, soak the sponge in warm water for 10-15 minutes until it puffs up & rehydrates. It expands about 50% & will be squishy. To use, soak briefly in warm water & rub in circular motions to clean pores. Press between palms to remove excess water & hang to dry. Lasts up to 6 months.
