Really good - 17-12-2018 by

This sponge makes applying foundation really easy and blends everything well

Great shape. soft and durable - 17-12-2018 by

This 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) - 12-12-2018 by

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 best - 10-12-2018 by

I 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 tried - 10-12-2018 by

Absolutely 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 without - 05-12-2018 by

This 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!! - 29-11-2018 by

A fantastic soft sponge. Great for applying liquids, creams or powers. I've tried a few sponges and this is definitely my favourite

Good Feel - 28-11-2018 by

This 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.

favourite - 27-11-2018 by

favourite sponge and I've tried a lot! works with lots of foundations and concealers and gives a flawless blend

Great for blending - 22-11-2018 by

This 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 sponge - 16-11-2018 by

This 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.

Great - 12-11-2018 by

Been 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 foundation - 07-11-2018 by

I 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 sponge - 05-11-2018 by

This is great for applying liquid foundations. Pretty easy to wash too!

Great makeup sponge - 02-11-2018 by

Have 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

Great - 31-10-2018 by

Works 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 skin - 26-10-2018 by

I’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

Great - 24-10-2018 by

I 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!

Favourite - 09-10-2018 by

Only blender I will use, dampens really well and foundation comes out flawless!

Blends great - 05-10-2018 by

I 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! - 04-10-2018 by

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 sponge - 01-10-2018 by

I 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.

Flawless Finish! - 24-09-2018 by

Huge fan of this alternative to the traditional bb! Creates a smooth and flawless finish effortlessly and is such great value.

Its ok... - 21-09-2018 by

I use this product everyday, but i will usually use a brush first to apply my makeup and touch up with the sponge as i feel it soaks up a lot of product otherwise. Its fine, it smooths the makeup out nicely.

Great - 12-09-2018 by

Good alternative if you cant get your hands on the beauty blender. I prefer the sponge texture/density but i much prefer the shape of the real techniques sponge as it has the flat surface for all over and the point really gets in between the nose and under the eyes.

Favourite sponge - 10-09-2018 by

I use this every day. Easy to use and leaves a really nice finish on the skin! Highly recommend this.

Pretty good - 06-09-2018 by

I'm use to brushes but found the sponge pretty good at applying foundation. Works better for cream foundations, I found it soaked up too much of my liquid foundation

Definitely worth it - 06-09-2018 by

such a good beauty blender dupe!!!!! Good price point and this leaves the perfect finish on my foundation, concealer and even powder.

ok - 04-09-2018 by

this product is ok, but as other reviews say - and I have to agree - it soaks up a lot of my foundation. Although this is a common problem with beauty blenders, this one seems to do it a lot which is really irritating. However, it does blend makeup really well!

Soaks a lot of product. - 03-09-2018 by

I used to love this sponge but they changed the way it feels and now it soaks up way too much of my foundation and my foundation is matte so it dries and the sponge splits. I wash it regularly but keep having to buy new ones because of the damage and it leaves my skin cakey looking. Please change back to the old ones as they were better and softer.

Does the job - 23-08-2018 by

To be honest I’m not the biggest fan of this sponge. It does the job if you’re looking for an affordable sponge but I’ve noticed it soaks up a lot of my foundation - even more than usual. It could be because I’m just used to using my normal tear drop shaped sponge, but I also found that the area around the point is fatter which makes it a little hard to apply concealer under the eyes.

Love it - 20-08-2018 by

This sponge is amazing i've used it for years it makes blending heavy and light coverage foundations super easy its fantastic i cant recommend it enough!

Awesome sponge - 14-08-2018 by

This is a great sponge for applying liquid foundation. Provides even application and is also easy to wash and re-use compared to brushes!

Great sponge - 14-08-2018 by

The second best thing to a beauty blender. I love using this sponge dry it’s great for applying liquid foundation for a flawless finish

My favourite makeup tool! - 13-08-2018 by

This is hands down my favourite thing ever! I love it so much and find it to be very comparable to the beauty blender but this is half the price! It doubles in size when wet and applies foundation so smoothly and leave a natural dewy finish. I use it to press in powder, blend blush and contour. There so many uses! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND

great - 12-08-2018 by

A great product for applying makeup!! Blends it out really well and the shape is great for getting in all those little hard to get !places

The original! - 12-08-2018 by

The original is the best! Better than a beauty blender.

Dupe for the beauty blender - 08-08-2018 by

I always used beauty blenders until I found this sponge. It's just as good, if not better, than the beauty blender, and almost half the price. It works great and i actually prefer the shape to the beauty blender. Use it damps and it blends anything perfectly.

Cruelty free but not worth it for me - 31-07-2018 by

I Went for 3 stars instead of 2 simply because the company is cruelty free. However I don't know if its just me or not however the sponge not only soaks up heaps of foundation concealer etc however it rips constantly after washing. Now I'm quite gentle with mine but its just not worth it for me. I purchased the eco tools sponge instead it lasts better actually gets bigger and has edges which makes it easier to get into tight small places

ok, but not long term - 26-07-2018 by

this product is good at what it does, but is slightly overpriced considering its relative value and durability.
even though i washed and dried it correctly after each use, i found it got pretty mangy quickly, and eventually threw it out because of concerning discolouration (mould??) would recommend as an infrequent product, but just didn't stand up to every day use.

good substitute to beauty blender - 26-07-2018 by

very easy to use and blends very well

Good budget sponge to start with - 24-07-2018 by

I thought I liked this sponge for the first few years of using it, but as soon as I switched to a beauty blender, I realised this sponge was stealing all of my precious foundation! It holds so much product in it, I must've lost bottles worth of product - the beauty blender doesn't hold nearly as much. The RT sponge does do the job and it creates a nice finish on the skin, but it's definitely not my preferred sponge.

blends so easily - 24-07-2018 by

the flat side is very handy for under eye area and the curved pointed edge fits by the nose perfectly. creates a beautiful flawlessly blended base, I also use this with my loose powder to bake under the eyes and under my contour, just wash gently as it is very light and delicate

Amazing - 18-07-2018 by

Amazing sponge. Does a great job and doesn't use up too much product. Gives me a great finish.

Easy to use - 17-07-2018 by

This is so easy to use, a really affordable product. Blends my foundation beautifully on my face for a nice finish.

Does the job - 17-07-2018 by

This sponge blends foundation well and gives a very even complexion. All in all does the job and is reasonably priced as well.

Still prefer the beauty blender over this - 13-07-2018 by

I have both this and the beauty blender and I prefer the beauty blender way more than this. This sponge is quite stiff and absorb a lot of product. It can still produce the results a beauty blender can give. However, it requires me to use a lot more product. Considering my foundation is quite expensive, I rather use a sponge that won't absorb as much product.

The Best - 12-07-2018 by

In my opinion, this is the best blender. This is the only sponge blender that I will purchase. It can be used dry or wet, lasts a great amount of time and that BLEND! I love love love.

Love! - 12-07-2018 by

Why did I wait so long before trying these? Definitely prefer these over all other sponges I have used. The flat side is very handy for under eye area. Creates beautiful flawless complexion, I also use this with my loose powder to set/bake. Great value also!

So versatile - 10-07-2018 by

Such a versatile product. This makes applying my foundation easy and super quick.

I get a lovely natural look super quick with this.

Excellent - 10-07-2018 by

This is the first sponge I've used to apply foundation (apart from those old-fashioned, flat-type sponges). It was a revelation! I've gotten into the habit of avoiding foundation altogether, as I don't want it to block my pores, but using a dampened sponge from Real Techniques means that I can get good coverage with the thinnest application. Fantastic!

Good and easy - 04-07-2018 by

I use this when I am in a rush. It's very easy to use and very quick. I get a beautiful finish.

Great product! - 02-07-2018 by

I really like this beauty blender! I find that it works well with the majority of foundations that I use and concealers. It's at an affordable price, considering the real beauty blenders are quite expensive! They also last me quite a while but obviously need to be cleaned regularly to avoid the bacteria building up! Overall, I'd recommend these!

Great for liquid makeup - 02-07-2018 by

I switched from the Real Techniques Brush to this sponge and love it but wish it wasn't so expensive. It does hold a bit of product too so after about 4 washes it needs to be thrown out. It leaves a nice smooth complexion with liquid foundation if damp.

works really well - 02-07-2018 by

This product does seamlessly integrate for contouring and works even if only a tiny bit damp but it does hold a lot of your pigments. blends well, but removes product doing it. Half the product is in the sponge but the effect is fantastic. Im new to contouring, even at first trial it was impressive.

Nothing like a beauty blender - 27-06-2018 by

I'm not sure what it is about the Real Techniques Sponge, but it doesn't blow me away with its blending powers. It's ok, but I feel this doesn't blend as well as the cult-fave Beauty Blender. It is a good solid cheaper alternative, but I find product just doesn't blend as smooth as much as I would like.

Love this makeup sponge!!! - 27-06-2018 by

I never really was into makeup sponges until I used this one . Now I am like collecting them from all brands to see which one is better. I have to admit this is one of the best ones I have . Every time I use it my foundation and concealer look flawless!!! Love it ! Would recommend for anyone to try its an awesome makeup sponge!!! Love it

Great - 25-06-2018 by

I can't believe i used to blend with my fingers. This uses less product more evenly, especially if you dampen it first. Cheaper versions of this product cannot compare.

Best sponge ever!! - 25-06-2018 by

This is one of the best sponges I have used and is even softer than the original beauty blender!! It blends foundation flawlessly and is the perfect size and has made applying my makeup so much easier

Best sponge! - 21-06-2018 by

I love how this sponge actually expands when you wet it because it can really bounce on the skin. I use this sponge damp to apply my setting powder as I have oily skin and it makes everything last so much longer. Definitely recommend this technique!

Easy to blend make up! - 19-06-2018 by

I used this originally for blending in my foundation but now use it for buffing in my concealer. It works so well and my hands stay clean! A great tool to have in your make up kit!

Best blender! - 14-06-2018 by

I bought this and didn’t like it. I later found out I was using it wrong (not dampening it first) and OMG lifechanging!!
It blends flawlessly, making my makeup look so even!
I wouldn’t be without this little sponge!

Best sponge - 01-06-2018 by

Best blender ever, have gone through so many. I love how well they dampen, unlike other sponges that stay hard

Best makeup sponge - 19-05-2018 by

I have gone through 5 of these already I love them so much! Great to use damp for blending foundation or dry for baking. I really like that it has both a flat and pointy end, it makes doing my makeup a much quicker process. Plus the price is brilliant! I can get two of these for the price of one beauty blender!!

Best beauty blender ever!! - 08-05-2018 by

This is by far the best beauty blender I have used. It is so soft Nd the straight edge really helps to blend out all those tricky places like around your eyes and nose.
If you wash it weekly with makeup brush cleanser it will last you easily a few months.

Would still pick the original beauty blender! - 08-05-2018 by

Don't really get the hype around this sponge! I find this to be very much stiffer than the original beauty blender, and soaks up more product than I'd like it to as I'm bouncing it on my skin. Also prefer the shape of the beauty blender as I find the flat side of this sponge a little awkward to use when I'm trying to push product into the skin. Overall its an okay sponge, but I'd still go for the original beauty blender despite the price difference.

Okay - 08-05-2018 by

Loved this when I first tried it but subsequently repurchases left me acting more. Not sure if they charged the sponge but I did the ones I've purchased since my first one are much firmer, to firm for my liking. Still worked on but not at good as the original one I tried.

Great product, just wish it lasted longer! - 17-04-2018 by

This is an awesome product that does exactly what it should. It's easy to use and blends beautifully. It's only downfall is that it hasn't lasted as long as other blenders have for me. I've also noticed that it does absorb a little more product than others of it's kind. So over all it's not the most perfect blender but it makes my makeup look flawless!!

Not bad - 19-03-2018 by

This wasn't too bad, however I found it a little stiff and when wet, it didn't really change. I felt like it soaked up more product that previous blenders I've used and in general, didn't last as long. Other blenders I've used have lasted me at least 3 months before buying a new one, whereas this one didn't even last me a month.
I also resorted to using a brush because I just wasn't happy with the results it gave me on some days. I would recommend Model Co's beauty blender sponge, cheaper and pretty much a dupe for the real Beauty Blender. I won't purchase this again.

Great - 21-02-2018 by

Love this blender will be repurchasing

Beats BeautyBlender's price point - 28-01-2018 by

If you want to save your money and find a sponge that works - one that is even able to get into the tricky nooks and crannies of your under-eye - this should be your go-to. Even after multiple uses and washes, it does the job beautifully. Dupe for the Blender - although slightly harder texture-wise, it works just as well in my opinion!

Great dupe for the beauty blender at an affordable price - 17-01-2018 by

This sponge is so soft and large making applying foundation and other cream products quick and flawless. The sponge was easy to clean and has easily replaced my beauty blender as it is half the price and just as good!

So soft! - 16-01-2018 by

This sponge is so soft and beautiful on my face, feels like clouds when I blend my foundation!

Game changer! - 20-12-2017 by

This sponge has really helped with how flawless my foundation goes on. I have used many others & this is THE BEST!! It really makes a huge difference with how foundation sinks into my skin, instead of sitting on my skin looking cakey. Love this sponge & real techniques as a brand!

So soft - 04-12-2017 by

I'm not a sponge savy but my old one got a really bad dent so I had to change it. I gave this one a go and it has been great, so soft and like a memory foam, whilst my older one was quite dense and hard.

The Ultimate Applicator - 27-11-2017 by

I asked my favourite makeup artist friend for some tips on how to make my makeup look less horrendous. Afraid that every time I looked at my face at the end of the day, most of my makeup had left the building or separated into an uneven mess. My saving grace? She recommended I start using the Complexion Sponge to apply my makeup. I cannot tell you how much this has changed my look! I will never again, underestimate how the right tool/s can actually make your skin look smoother, clearer and more radiant. This is now a must-have in my makeup bag and I use it everyday.

Staple sponge - 15-11-2017 by

I am loving this blending sponge. I dampen it with a hydrating mist before using it, and it blends my makeup into my skin for the most natural finish which I love. Sometimes my tinted moisturiser can pill on my skin, but when I press this blender of the top, it blends everything in seamlessly. It also washes really well.

Fantastic! - 13-11-2017 by

This sponge is so much better than the other ones I have been using, I didn't realise what a difference a good quality blender made until I used this one! Give me such a smooth complexion, so happy I bought this!

Great - 20-10-2017 by

Happy with the sponge, really soft and blends really well. However if you have long nails be careful you do not puncture it and always use wet as it is maybe a little TOO soft and is prone to tearing, at least for my nails.

Does what it's meant to do - 13-09-2017 by

I used to be a foundation brush gal but this sponge has now changed my makeup game :)

Really great affordable sponge - 24-07-2017 by

I'm really impressed by this sponge! It's super soft, and the edges really allow you to get into hard to reach areas. I find this sponge doesn't soak up too much product, which is always a massive plus when getting a new sponge.

I find that this is a really great alternative to some of the more expensive foundation sponges on the market, and I'd recommend it.

So soft! - 10-07-2017 by

This sponge is absolutely amazing, When damp it gives the most flawless makeup application! It feels so soft on the skin - and has a perfect pointed tip for those harder to reach places + the under eyes! Surprisingly easy to clean, and great for on the go!

Perfect! - 03-07-2017 by

This is the best make up blender/sponge I've used! So soft, so easy to use wet or dry. Helps me create flawless coverage with my foundation and also blend out my concealer and contour to perfection! Love!

Soft and Bouncy - 13-01-2017 by

Works well to blend foundation evenly over my skin; I have never used a sponge so I have nothing to compare it to but I think it works great. Not too firm, not too soft. that perfect inbetween for me!
