This review will be in 3 parts, the delivery, the packaging and the actual product review.
The konjac sponge I received wasn’t in “perfect condition”, as the rope for hanging it out to dry, had cut on one side. So, I had to result to tying it which was pretty inconveniencing and time wasting.
However, the marula oil was as expected.
Absolutely excellent. Whoever handles their phone lines definitely deserves a big fat raise. They also respond to emails and insta messages.
ACTUAL PRODUCT REVIEW
I ordered this product because for the month before I had been pretty stressed and my skin was looking dull. So, it was pretty much ‘Operation Skin Rejuvenation” for me.
Ginger Konjac Sponge- N2000
The Konjac sponge comes in 4 varieties, Green Tea, Ginger, Bamboo Charcoal, & Original.
I wanted the “Green Tea Konjac Sponge” but that was out of stock, so I went with the “Ginger Konjac Sponge”
It was initially hard, but after I soaked it in water for about 15 minutes, it softened up. If you do not use it for like 3 days, it goes back to the hard form, but no worries, you just soak it in water again and you are good to go.
I didn’t use it religiously because the process of tying and untying was pretty arduous for me. The company advises customers to replace the konjac sponge after a month, but I didn’t even use it for that long, it was however pretty good to my skin, I used it alongside my lemon infused drug store face wash and after about two weeks I started to see results. My skin was brighter and clearer.
Asides the packaging issue, this was a pretty solid product.
Pure Marula Face Oil(30ml) -N3500
This oil was really good to my face, it would sink into my skin immediately and it actually has healing properties.
I used it in the morning and at night religiously for 2 weeks and I did not break out. A bottle should last for at least 6 weeks, depending on how you use it.
I wasn’t in Lagos when I ordered for this product, but I entered Lagos as my delivery address. I do not remember the exact day I placed the order but I know that it took about 6/7 days for the product to get to the house, which was a little disappointing because the company is in Lagos and they were delivering to a Lagos address, but they explained that they use a courier service so sometimes things are out of their control. I think the delivery charge was N1000
Yes, as a matter of fact I already did that. However, I bought a different set of products this time. I bought a different face oil(Vitamin E), I also purchased their Glycerin Toner and I bought the original Konjac face Sponge(not for myself though, for my mum.) I think the first ginger Konjac sponge stressed me too much, so I gave up on that. The rope for this was intact though, I hereby assume the issue with mine was a one time thing.
I will be reviewing, all except the original face sponge-because I did not purchase it for myself- when I have used them for over 2 weeks and have enough information to do a review.
Ajali is a total yes for me, their products are affordable, they are natural, and I was extremely pleased with their customer service. What they lost in “delivery”, they made up for with customer service. Delivery was the only hitch, so I advice that if you want to purchase their products,you transfer into their account, and you either walk into the store to pick it up, use an uber, or ask a friend to pick up for you(which is what I did). If you must do the delivery route, don’t order when you are in a rush, be patient with them and give your order at least a week.
I didn’t take pictures, because at the time I had phone problems, so pictures are from the Ajali website. Have you tried any of their products? Share your experience in the comment section.
