This meant turning to Amazon, which is where I found a double pack of 100% natural konjac sponges for the same price as the one Spa to You one. The pack came with a standard white sponge and a charcoal-infused one for oily skin days, which I get on occasion.
I was a bit put off when the sponges arrived as they were wrapped tightly in plastic, were totally dry and tiny. However, once I soaked the charcoal sponge, it grew in size massively and was actually much softer than my previous sponge. It is also incredibly gentle on my skin, offering exfoliation and great cleansing power with minimal effort.
Not only are these sponges great for refining your complexion and cleansing your skin really well, they also mean I use less facial cleanser than I would normally, helping me to save money.
This face wash is mostly organic - 74 per cent in fact - and uses naturally derived ingredients to offer gentle cleansing and moisturisation. It also smells absolutely amazing and doesn't have the fake perfumed fragrance that many liquid face washes tend to have.
When combined with my konjac sponge, I need less than a pump of face wash to create lots of soft lather, so one bottle is going to last for ages. As well as being long-lasting, the results I've gotten are great.
I was having a lot of problems with my skin after taking my first batch of PCOS medication, which brought me out in bad spots, resulted in an oily complexion and affected the overall texture of my skin. After a few days of using this face wash morning and night, my skin calmed down and I felt a lot happier. It left my skin feeling soft and fresh without a lot of fuss.
I'm now looking forward to trying more products from Skin Blossom.
Sadly, I had to take my lash extensions off on the morning of my gastric band operation, which took most of my natural lashes with them. There was nothing to do but hope they grow back and cover up their absence with some killer false lashes.
That was until I found this mascara from GOSH. I was a bit dubious when I saw it;s claims that it would help lashes visibly grow in just two weeks, but I figured I might as well give it a go - after all, I'd already lost my lashes so what else could I use. I was actually really surprised by how good it is. Not only does it separate lashes and allow you to build up volume, it really does make your lashes grow longer faster.
I've been really happy with the results and am happy to say that my lashes are almost back to how they were before extension-gate. The only downside as far as I'm concerned is that it isn't waterproof, which is a bit of a problem for me, as I have sensitive eyes.
