The LUNA Facial Sponge is created using the roots of the konyakku plant, a food staple for more than 1,500 years in Asian cultures. The vegetable fibers are purified and spun into a puff that is incredibly water-retentive. When used, there is a water barrier between sponge and skin which means it cleanses without scratching or irritating. The sponge is ideal for daily use, especially for those with sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Daily use: Soak briefly in warm water to rehydrate. To exfoliate, wet the sponge and make a small lather with your favorite facial bar. You can also use the sponge alone without any cleanser. Rub in circular motions to remove dirt from the pores without scratching the skin. Your face will love it! Rinse out completely, then press between palms to remove excess water from sponge and hang to dry.
After 3 months: Sanitize the sponge or replace. If you see mold or bacteria growth, do not use the sponge. Some users have boiled it in water to sterilize it, or saturated it in water and microwaved for 20 seconds to sterilize. If you continue to squeeze and hang it to fully dry between uses, it could last for up to 6 months.
