So. Here is what I think about....Oleavine 100% Plant Based Sponge Infused with French Green Clay #oleavine

I have combination skin so I exfoliate regularly. I've always used those products that have the scrubby bits that feel like sand. When I got the opportunity to try the Oleavine Konjac Sponge, I was anxious to use it because the product description says that it is infused with French Green Clay. Those of us with oily skin know that clay is what we're looking for when we clean our faces.

When I opened the box & unwrapped the sponge. I will admit that at that point I was a bit skeptical. The sponge was as light as a feather & it felt like I was holding a piece of styrofoam.

After reading the directions on the box, I rinsed the sponge in warm water & it started to become softer & feel more like a sponge as it absorbed the water. Then I pressed the sponge between my palms to squeeze out some of the water. Now I was ready to give it a try!

The teardrop shape fit perfectly in my palm & I began to massage my face with the sponge. It felt really good on my skin & didn't cause redness like those exfoliating scrubs. When I had finished, I patted my face dry. My skin did not feel dried out, but just felt soft & smooth. I rinsed the sponge & again pressed it between my palms to squeeze out the excess water. There is a string attached to the sponge so that it can be hung up to air dry so I hung it on a hook in my shower.

This sponge can be used without any cleanser at all. But if you choose to use one, you will only need a small bit, much less than you would usually use.

According to the product information, this sponge is 100% natural, biodegradable, sustainably developed, no color added, no preservatives & no chemicals. I don't know about you, but that's pretty much what I look for when I'm going to be using a product every day on my face.

And the ingredients list on the box is really short too: Pure Konjac Powder, water, French Green Clay. That's it!

So. Here is what I think about the Oleavine 100% Plant Based Sponge Infused with French Green Clay: My original skepticism was immediately erased as soon as I used the sponge for the first time. The sponge absorbs water & becomes so soft. It feels good on my face & cleanses well while still being gentle & causing no redness.

I especially love the fact that I only need a tiny bit of my regular face cleanser when I use it with this sponge.

So. Bottom line. If you have combination skin with that oily T-zone like I do, this product will work for you. The infusion of French Green Clay helps absorb excess oil & leaves skin feeling refreshed.
