too soft for me, tears easily
i found this to be a lot more softer than the beauty blender. its too big for me personally and i like my sponges to be a little more firm (black beauty blender is my go to!) washed only a few times and i could see little tears.
would be good for someone who uses it everyday for work and is on a budget tho

great spongei love real techniques sponges, they are strong and dont tend to break when soaking or washing them!
GoodVery affordable and high quality beauty blender. It allows my products to blend very easily on my skin and I like the finished look
Go to beauty blenderI always use beauty blenders with a flat edge and this is a really soft and affordable beauty blender that gives me great foundation coverage on my skin. I also use it to bake and love how well it can blend everything
Love!!The RT sponge is amazing and just as good as the beauty blender. I use both and don't notice any difference. The sponge applies foundation evenly and leaves the skin looking dewy and healthy. The flat side is also really handy to get into hard to reach areas.
Great ToolI use this one a little 'damp' as when I used dry sucked up all my foundation, really easy to us and gives a beautiful even coverage
Excellent dupe!This is an amazing dupe of the overly price of the Beauty Blender. This Real Techniques sponge blends makeup like a dream and I love the flat side for baking!

Fabulous blender!Great blending sponge and very soft. I like to use it damp and it gives me nice, even coverage. Easy to clean and also good piece!
Great qualityVery soft, blends products nicely and find that it blends better and is better quality than the beauty blender.
Great results great price!I use this beauty blender to apply and blend foundation and concealers. I can’t believe it, but I actually prefer this sponge over a more expensive brand I also own. Real techniques make great brushes and sponges in my opinion and if you are after that flawless finish on a budget then I highly recommend trying this out.
A great toolI love this sponge. It applies my foundation and concealer flawlessly and I also love using it for setting powder under my eyes. Such a versatile makeup tool
Beauty bag must haveI love this sponge! it makes applying makeup super easy and blends foundation seamlessly. also good to use when baking under eyes
Great way to apply foundationFavourite way to apply foundation and cream products! Works great for me and I would definitely recommend
Great dupeGreat dupe for a beauty blender. Does the job. Blends foundation seamlessly.
Best beauty sponge - beats the restI bought this sponge due to so many people recommending it due to its similarities with the beauty blender! The Beauty blender was all I knew, so I didn’t have anything to compare it to.
As soon as I tried this I chucked my beauty blender away (no joke) after 1 use of this sponge! It’s great and blends our makeup flawlessly and the price is just the best!
Great QualityGreat quality, but definitley not as soft as a Beauty Blender! I really like the flat edge and the point on the other end of the sponge. Makes it a little more functional.
Great all-rounderGreat sponge for application on all areas of your face.
Best make-up toolAnyone who wears foundation should buy this sponge. RT is amazing as a brand and this product is no exception. It is the only thing that blends my foundation the way it does- making it look like a second skin. I totally love it and can’t recommend it enough.
Love ItGreat sponge especially for the price! Makes foundation go on effortlessly!
VersatileLove the contours of this sponge - perfect for undereyes and contouring as well as blending foundation. Very versatile.
So affordable!After buying expensive sponges, I decided to give this one a go and haven’t looked back. Makes foundation application soo easy and quick and I always get compliments! I put it down to the sponge!
Fabulous!I found that this sponge is amazing for applying foundation - I like to dampen it before hand and then use it to blend everything once I'm finished with my face makeup. Leaves your makeup looking seamless!
Seamless blendingFantastic alternative to more pricey sponges! Easiest and quickest way to blend.
Great affordable beauty spongeThis is a wonderful, affordable beauty sponge. Whilst I haven't ever tried the original beauty blender as I could never justify the price, I don't feel the need to with the results this sponge provides. I use it damp for application of foundation, and as someone who loves natural looking makeup, I love the second skin, natural, blended look that this sponge gives. I haven't had problems with longevity as some other reviewers have, and find that it washes really well with makeup sponge cleanser (I just use the one from Daiso that works a treat). Would definitely recommend.
OkayI definitely prefer the original beauty blender. This is still good.
Cheap alternative to beauty blenderI love this as a cheaper alternative to the beauty blender. Its designed with a point and flattened edge to blend out foundation, concealer and cream products easily. I use damp, and replace often as they can get a bit grubby.
Works well but tears easilyI have used these as well as the classic Beauty Blender and while these work just as well for the application of make up, I find they don't have the longevity of Beauty Blenders. I use my sponges daily and like to wash after each use and have found they tend to tear a lot quicker than beauty blenders. I have owned about 10-15 of them and tried a number of different products to wash them but nothing worked to keep them in tact, in some cases they had a tear within 3 washes. I find the tip of this sponge to also be a little wide which makes it harder to reach into the corners of my eyes. At half the price of a beauty blender you can replace them twice as much but to me that still wasn't worth it, if you don't use them everyday and therefore don't wash it as frequently as I do they might be perfect for you. They're a quality sponge.
Moneys worthMost people think the beauty blender is better but for the price, the real techniques works really well. If you’re comparing a &1 sponge to this and the beauty blender. You get what you pay for but this sponge does the job!
CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS ENOUGHGuys, I have tried brushes and my fingers both. This thing trumps everything by a landslide. The way it blends my foundation- it looks like a second skin. TBH, you can buy the best foundation out there but if you do not use the right blending tool it will look cakey and thick. I absolutely love it-best buy
Great dupeI love my beauty blender but this really does compare well - I tend to pick these up because they're easier to get my hands on, and work just as well.
one of my faveslove the shape of the sponge and works almost as well as the beauty blender. only downside is that the sponge doesnt last as long as the beauty blender
love itbeautiful application, makes makeup creaseless, and helps conceals dark circles and spots very well, feel really aerated and fluffy use all the time.
Honestly nothing compared to the beauty blenderI personally think that it’s worth spending the extra money to get the real beauty blender. The beauty blender is a lot softer and bouncier than this. Although this is cheaper I can feel the difference!
Do not need the real beauty blenderI have used the original beauty blender, but Real techniques sponge is just as good for a more affordable price. It is best used damp for my concealer, foundation etc. It blends easily but initially it will absorb some of your product, which is why I recommend using it damp. I have been dipping it into my setting powder and pressing this into the skin which has slightly damaged the sponge due to powder build up so I recommend buying 2 sponges and using one for powders and one for liquids. I also found if I do not wash it monthly and a lot of liquid product builds up it can change shape so I recommend regular cleaning.
multiple usethis sponge is useful for almost everything like blending foundation, concealer and baking. it does really expand hugely and is quite bouncy and soft. not stiff at all or absorbs a lot of product. the flat surface is so good at blending foundation and saving time.
BETTER THAN THE BEAUTY BLENDERI cannot be without this sponge!
I have tried so many others and always find myself coming back to this one!
It has the perfect texture and leaves my concealer with a perfect finish!
I rate it more highly than the original beauty blender!
Can't live withoutI use it daily for applying foundation, concealer, cream blush and contour, liquid highlighter and powders. It eliminates the need for multiple brushes and applies all products seamlessly.
Must be used damp.
Really good beauty blenderSo easy to use, blends foundation really well, also like that they're so cheap
Is a bit harder than other brands but I find it works really well
an amazing sponge but not long lastingLove this sponge but it doesn't last as long as other brand. thank god it is not as expensive as the other brand so I don't really mind
A sponge that rivals BeautyblendersI love all my real techniques sponges. I don't feel the need in buying a sponge double the price of the real technique ones because they both apply the same to me. Save your money and try these out
Essential!I TRIED brushes for application, for years and always reverted back to good old fingers. As my skin texture has changed with age I needed to try something different. Brushes still weren't working for me so I tried this sponge, after trying cheap brands and even the original BB. This is my essential. I will never be without one again!
Love this beauty sponge!I haven't tried many other sponges, but for the price I think this one is great. I wash it regularly and it's lasted months! It applies foundation and other products so nicely, and now I'm used to using it I much prefer the application to a brush or other method - it doesn't even take any longer.
It’s greatI have tried many different brands of beauty blenders including the original and I never notice a different between brands regardless of how much is spent on them.
I found these to blend the makeup really well and found when I washed them they maintained their shape - When they get too old you can just replace them as they’re cheap.
Blends flawlesslyBlends my foundation and concealer so well! Works well dry too, better than other sponges I've used.
An absolute go-toThis sponge is amazing value for money in comparison to its competitors. It is so similar to the beauty blender that you would be throwing money away to spend the additional money on that, and it's so much better than almost every other cheaper alternative that it's just the perfect product. It blends my foundation out like a dream, as well as other cream products, so I tend to have a good 2 or 3 on the go at any one time. I also find that it packs loose powder on for baking really well if you use it dry
NiceCheaper than the beauty blender and works just as well, maybe even better!
What am I missing??Am I the only one that doesn’t understand these things?? I really don’t get them!! They absorb all product (when wet & dry) and leave pretty much no coverage on your face. I really don’t get the point of these. I gave it a red hot go but I’ll stick to my RT brushes instead
Good spongeIt’s affordable, grows to a good size when wet and much more affordable than the beauty blender
Best dupe on the market for the Beauty BlenderI always used to use my fingers for applying my foundation and concealer (cringe, I know) but since trying out this sponge I am impressed. It is soft, bouncy and gives an amazing flawless coverage when used correctly. I suggest running it under water and then gently squeezing it until it is left damp but no water leakage, for the best application. Only downfalls are the application time and product wastage. It takes quite a long time to apply your base with this product as you have to use patting motions for the flawless finish so if you are in a rush, I don't suggest using it. Also because it is a sponge, and we all know they absorb liquids, I am not entirely impressed with how much product I am wasting especially when my foundation is an expensive high end product. I will only use it with my cheap-average priced base products and if I have a special occasion or have a lot of extra time on my hands before going out. Overall, it is an amazing quality product, but I suppose it comes down to personal preference.
The best spongeI always use these to apply my makeup, it just has the most natural finish and having it wet keeps the dewy look. Also yay for being cheaper than the beauty blender. I tend to buy a pack of a few just to stock up.
Blends foundation wellFantastic complexion sponge that blends foundation nicely on the face. It spreads foundation evenly across the face and is gentle on the skin.
Blends WellBlends make up well, leaving a pretty flawless finish. I like the fact that it's orange too, it makes it really easy to find in my makeup bag. The only problem I have with it is cleaning it, when I tried to get the foundation out of the first one I bought, a piece of the sponge broke off.
Absolute favourite sponge!This sponge is so soft and blends my foundation and concealer like a dream! The flat edge is also perfect for applying powder under my eyes and contouring. It's the only sponge I use and I can't recommend this product highly enough.
Great ProductBlends very well, super happy, would highly recommend
GoodGreat dupe for a beauty blender sponge. Suggest wetting it before using!
Blending PerfectorThis is one of the best sponges I have used (it is up there with the beautyblender). It is soft, blends to perfection and is easy to clean. I like the flat edge to get under my eyes and the corner of my nose. I found it to hold up well for months if maintained properly.
Versatile spongeEasy to use, quite versatile and affordable
OK, not the bestSoft and nice, but not long-lasting, so not the best value...
Best blender on the market!I LOVE this beauty blender. It is so smooth yet a little dense just the right balance to blend your makeup! It has lasted me a really long time and I would defiantly recommend this to everybody
Soft as a cloudSuper soft! My foundation goes on flawlesses with this sponge and highly recommend for both full coverage or when you’d like to have a dewy look. You have the option to keep sponge dry or damp for different effects.
One of the bestThis is one of the best sponges I have used (it is up there with the beautyblender). It is soft, blends to perfection and is easy to clean. I like the flat edge to get under my eyes and the corner of my nose. I found it to hold up well for months if maintained properly.
Love ItLove this sponge! Super soft and leaves a beautiful, flawless application of foundation.
Easy to useEasy to use and nice and strong. Great makeup application that leaves the skin with even coverage. My last one has seen through a whole year and still going strong
love love lovelove this sponge so much but the only thing is that you have to really keep up with keeping it clean otherwise makeup builds up quite quickly and it will be very hard to give a good clean to!
PerfectThis is such a good blender. Perfect with all foundations. I would suggest wetting it before you blend :)
Always have it in stockI buy packs of these and always have a backup sponge ready to go. I've even bought some for my girlfriend who is getting into makeup.
They are cheaper than the BB and are so soft and bouncy. My only complaint is that they do not very long. I wear makeup everyday and after about 3 months i start getting tears in the sponge, i wish it was more environmentally friendly
Best Sponge but hard to cleanThis sponge is really easy to work with once wet, and is really good for applying liquid foundation. It's really hard to clean though, especially on the flat top side.
Amazing!!!My sister bought these for me at Christmas and i was instantly converted!! I’ve used the original beauty blender and Model Co brands and they have nothing on Real Techniques
Not greatI didn’t think this really did much for me. It absorbed way too much of my foundation and made it look quite patchy. I’ve heard people say this is a dupe for the beauty blender but it definitely isn’t! Quite disappointing unfortunately!
OkApplies foundation well but deteriorates, after using mine for a few months it’s started to break a little and is hard to clean
Great for applying and blending liquid and even powder foundationI haven’t used the original beauty blender but I have tried other sponges, including the MECCA beauty blender with broke apart after using only a couple of times, and this is much, much better. I’ve used it a few times and I wash it after or before each use and it’s held up nicely. It blends liquid foundation really well and I’ve even used it to apply powder foundation. Would repurchase.
No no noYou might as well use a $1 sponge for the same effect. It also breaks after a few washes. It’s too compact and doesn’t do the trick
LoveSuper soft beauty sponge and I really like the shape. The flat edge is great at blending out concealer under the eyes
Better than Beauty BlenderThis sponge is great and applies concealer like a dream. For this reason, I may just prefer it to a beauty blender which I also love. The flat surface is handy and the colour washes up quite well.
BlendedLove using this with all liquids and creams gives the skin such a natural finish
Soft and easy to use!This sponge is an affordable alternative to the BeautyBlender. It is very soft and super easy to use. When I blend my foundation with this sponge it looks flawless. The sponge also lasts a long time if you take care of it, it's very durable and easy to clean!
good starter spongei am not a huge fan of beauty sponges but i have been using it quite a lot. i have dry skin so if i use this damp to apply my foundation it does not dries my skin out. also if you are just starting off to use beauty blenders this one would be the best one to get for beginners.
One of the best applicators on the market!I found that this works better than the beauty blenders. They're so easy to clean and are so reasonably priced. Is so much better when it is wet and doesn't take long to dry after washing either. Plus they last ages as long as you take care when in use!
Really goodThis sponge makes applying foundation really easy and blends everything well
Great shape. soft and durableThis sponge is soft and durable. It has a nice point to blend undereyes or any other hard to reach places. If you're looking for a dupe for the beauty blender, this is perfect.
Better than the original Beauty Blender (IMO)I love the texture of this sponge and the finish it gives to my skin. Foundation applies so smoothly and even coverage is very easily attainable with this tool. It also cleans extremely well (I use a combination of olive oil and dish soap) and it lasts a considerable amount of time with proper care.
One of the originals and the bestI love this and always have a few in my kit. Easy to wash and care for, perfect seamless application and reasonably priced.
Best beauty sponge I've triedAbsolutely recommend, the best sponge I've used thus far. Soft and doesn't absorb too much product. I find it blends product perfectly and for the price I'd be likely to recommend it over more expensive sponges.
Could not live withoutThis is an absolute holy grail accessory for me. they last such a long time if washed regularly and kept in good condition. soft, does not absorb too much of the product that it becomes wasteful and evenly distributes the foundation. great for setting the under eyes aswell
Fantastic!!A fantastic soft sponge. Great for applying liquids, creams or powers. I've tried a few sponges and this is definitely my favourite
Good FeelThis makeup sponge feels good and blends liquid foundations well. The straight edge is great for applying loose powders under the eyes. Great value for money.
favouritefavourite sponge and I've tried a lot! works with lots of foundations and concealers and gives a flawless blend
Great for blendingThis is my favourite sponge. It was way too hard the first time I used it, but after that it became the perfect texture to blend my foundation.
My favourite spongeThis sponge blends out my foundation perfectly, I also use the same one for concealer, setting powder, liquid and cream highlighter, the list goes on. It is soft but not too soft. It is a little more firm than the beauty blender but I think that is something I like more about this sponge. It tends to last a bit longer for me and it is more affordable. Win, win.
GreatBeen using this for years.
Sooo good. Smooth application, I use it wet for foundation unless it’s a very thin formula or a tinted moisturiser or bb cream. Great for sheering out full coverage products, also for cream contour and blush.
Easy to wash with antimicrobial soap and olive oil.
A staple for me always.
I’ve got dry ageing skin and need a good product for foundation otherwise it’s cake face city.
good for blending foundationI do like this sponge and find it good for pressing foundation into the skin to help it last longer and blend seamlessly but I do prefer the beauty blender.
Nice little spongeThis is great for applying liquid foundations. Pretty easy to wash too!
Great makeup spongeHave been buying these for years, love the flat top to dip into powder and set under my eyes. Great at applying liquid foundations on my dry skin
GreatWorks just as well as a beauty blender and I actually like the flat bottom, it doesn't roll away when I put it down!
Dewy skinI’ve got really dry skin and this is perfect for me! I use it to apply foundation, tinted moisteriser, liquid blush and highlight and it makes my skin look so fresh and dewy! The sponge is super soft and easy to use. Would definitely recommend especially for dry skin
GreatI have dry skin and this really helps make my makeup look flawless, I heard so many great reviews on this so I decided to buy it and I'm so glad I did! It blends so smoothly and is so soft, I would definitely recommend!
FavouriteOnly blender I will use, dampens really well and foundation comes out flawless!
Blends greatI prefer brushes to sponges as they absorb so much product, but this is one of the best on the market for blending everything out.
Awesome!I've used the traditional BB and this sponge. They are on par with each other - however this sponge is definitely better value. I love that it has a flat side. Makes it easier to get in the corners of your face and for applying powder under the eyes. Would definitely repurchase - perhaps the pack next time!
The best make up spongeI think this sponge is better then the beauty blender it applies my make up flawlessly it’s the only make up sponge I’ll be using from now on.
