The Konjac Sponge

I went on a shopping trip to Selfridges in Birmingham today and discovered this strange sponge in the beauty hall. This is marketed as an ‘enriching, powerful and effective answer to premium skin cleansing.’

You dampen the sponge and use it to remove makeup either with or without cleanser. This didn’t remove my mascara however it did remove my other makeup.

The jury’s still out on this one as I haven’t found it any more effective than my usual cleansing cloths, but my opinion may change the more I use this.

Rodial Glamtox Cleansing Balm

Hi all, I hope that you all had a lovely New Year and that all of your dreams come true in 2016!

This was the only beauty sale item that I picked up this year as I am saving for a mortgage.

This was £25 reduced from £50 for 100ml.

First of all the packaging is beautiful, and the pump seems of a very high quality. The product is a beautiful texture and smells very similar to the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. This removed all of my makeup but did struggle a little with the waterproof mascara, however I normally remove this with Bioderma before anyway.

This is not quite as good as the Emma Hardie, however this is still a lovely product to use, and the packaging makes this definitely worthy of a place on any dressing table!
