I love suing this to blend out my concealer. A much better, affordable dupe for the beauty blender!

Most Helpful Criticism

not inlove


really didn't love this, it makes you need so much foundation and I didn't get a better blend then if I used a brush
  1. Amazing


    I love suing this to blend out my concealer. A much better, affordable dupe for the beauty blender!
  2. ease of use


    so soft. this makes foundation blending so easy
  3. Nice application


    This provides a nice application for my foundation but I find that it absorbs quite a bit of product.
  4. Amazing


    my makeup applies flawlessly with this
  5. Gamechanger


    This is a makeup essential I cannot live without. It always leaves a skinlike flawless finish to my makeup. This performs so much better than the original beauty blender and more affordable too!
  6. Easy to use shape


    Love the shape of this sponge! There's a flat side which is useful for applying foundation all over, then a pointed side for more precision.
    It is not the most durable sponge - it tore a little when i was washing it probably 2-3 washes in, but it is a more affordable sponge. I've been using it fine with the little tear - too small of an issue to replace/throw away for now!
  7. Just as good as the beauty blender!


    I've been a loyal BB buyer for years and so wasn't expecting to love this product as much as I do. It's slightly bigger and I find the edges useful for contouring or working around the mouth. I don't feel as guilty replacing it either because it's half the price and so it's probably better for my skin.
  8. Love this!


    I love the way this makes my foundation look. It washes well and I can get a few months of use before it gets a little gross.
  9. Reliable


    Good replacement of the more expensive brand, just wish it was on sale more! Have gotten this sponge many times and the quality is always consistent, survives many washes and uses. I really like sponges like this with both a point and a flat edge.
  10. Perfect


    I use this product to blend out my concealer and it is my absolute FAVOURITE sponge. It leaves my skin looking nice and blended, however doesn't absorb too much product. Such a good dupe for the beauty blender.
  11. The best beauty blender around


    I have been using and repurchasing this beauty blender for years now. It really is the best. Works even better when slightly damp, and makes foundation blend in really well. I make sure to change the beauty blender every 2-3 months, and. the price makes it manageable to maintain.
  12. Okay


    a little disappointing, but the sponge is very affordable. for me, the product seems to soak up a lot more than beauty blender for example.
  13. great sponge!


    one of my favourite makeup sponges, soft, affordable and great quality. will continue to repurchase
  14. Love this !


    Such a great sponge! so bouncy and soft.
  15. Love this sponge


    I haven't tried the Beauty Blender, but I love this Real Techniques sponge. It blends so effortlessly and makes my skin look great! I do think it soaks up a bit of product, and tears a little easily, but I would recommend and repurchase this sponge since I prefer it to others I have tried (Ecotools and others).
  16. Love the edges


    Really enjoy the corners that the Real Techniques sponge has (compared to the other well-known alternative), and I find that it performs comparably well at a much lower price point.
  17. not as great as other sponges


    personally i prefer bb. this just didnt cut it for me. its a lot bigger and softer, which means it soaked up a lot more product. i had to use heaps more product for it to cover my redness. i only use this as a back up
    when i forget to wash my other sponge.
    however, if youre in a rush would be easier and quicker to use as its bigger. i dont hate this product its just not as good for m...

  18. They have changed!


    RT have changed how they make their sponges. They USED to be amazing, and they decided to fix something that wasn't broken. I am so mad. buyer beware! I have started using another brand
  19. Sister loves this


    I'm not a fan of sponges so gave this to my sister, she loves the quality! Good value for money
  20. Very Versatile


    Got this on a whim after always using super cheap options. Used it once and instantly knew I found my new fave! The shape is so versatile and is able to get into all areas of the face. It's great for liquid products but also works really well for cream products as well. A great blending option.
  21. On par with beauty blender


    I only ever owned beauty blenders. This is just as good for a lot cheaper.
  22. Great choice


    Great at making my foundation appear smooth and even on my skin


    I used to refuse to purchase anything other than the beautyblender until one day I was in an area where I couldn't buy them and I'd left my sponge at home. In a rush to buy a make up sponge I purchased this and I've never looked back. If you haven't seen a REAL TECHNIQUES sponge, they're massive. They get to 2-3 sizes bigger than the beauty blender when wet so allow you to pop on your foundation q...

  24. Really good product


    The perfect product if you like sponge application for foundation, but removes a lot of the makeup as you use it and is pretty hard to clean. Otherwise it's great!!
  25. The perfect blender


    Love this! I apply my foundation with a brush and then use this to smooth it out a bit and it gives that air brushed look.
  26. AMAZING!!!


    I used to only use brushes, but when someone introduced me to this beauty sponge my mind was blown away
  27. Great!!


    Great if you use a lot of base makeup!! Be careful of wasting product though, it takes a lot of your makeup off while applying :)
  28. good sponge


    Very nice sponge, same as beauty blender and better value. Loving it.
  29. Great sponge


    This is a great sponge, I love the quality and think it’s amazing for the price. I reach for it all of the time and think it does the job really well!
  30. The perfect sponge


    Started using this several years ago in place of my Beauty Blender and instantly fell in love with it. It's so soft and squashy and expands so much when water is added. Highly receommend!
  31. amazing


    my favourite make up sponge, perfect beauty blender dupe
  32. Lovely little sponge


    Worth paying a little extra for this sponge, though I think this is well-priced regardless. Blends well, feels nice to use and lasts much longer than cheaper versions.
  33. very soft


    blends out product so nicely, and the pointed end is perfect for your undereye area. in my experience, it works best when damp
  34. Really really good


    I love using this to apply and sheering out foundation
  35. love


    love these sponges so much. Affordable and excellent application. Have been through so many over the years and Will never stop buying.
  36. Worth the hype!!


    I don't really wear foundation, but I bought this for special occasions when I needed natural-looking full coverage and it's perfect!! Once you wet it it's absolutely perfect for creating that smooth texture :))
  37. Amazing affordable alternative


    I have so many of these sponges! A great affordable alternative to the original Beauty Blender. I actually prefer the flat surface, it helps me to build coverage easier. LOVE!
  38. The best!


    I really love this. It's affordable, soft, but lasts through months of use without breaking down.
    The flat edge is great for nooks and crannies and it just blends everything so well
  39. A little on the fence


    Overall I do quite like it but nothing too special. Its often said to be very affordable, and compared to a beauty blender it is, but I still find it overpriced at about $20 each. I feel like there's cheaper comparible options out there
  40. a good sponge


    this is really good when you get the hang of it, blends foundation well
  41. Best sponge


    I used to use the beauty blender then I found this. Love this a lot more. Purchased a few more.
  42. Always go back to it


    I've tried a few sponges and I always go back to this one. It is affordable and smooths my foundation and is pretty durable! I replace it when I feel it's starting to get unhygienic, I've never had to replace it for rips or tears.
  43. Love this sponge


    I really love this sponge. It's affordable and easy to use. I dampen it for foundation or use it dry for powder. Love!
  44. Spongey goodness


    I use this sponge everyday, It is perfect. It is affordable, soft but not too soft, spreads makeup easily and evenly and is a great shape to fit in all the little creases of the face
  45. YES


    On the VERY rare occasion that I wear liquid foundation, THIS is what I will always use to apply it. It is lovely and soft, and I don't find that I waste a lot of product with it.
  46. My good first sponge


    Great with different angles. It doesn't just soak up product
  47. Best makeup sponge I’ve found!


    This is the second one I’ve bought now, also bought my mum one too! After trying so many from the chemist that are too firm and don’t do what I need them to, this sponge is the perfect firmness. It’s light enough to work the foundation on my skin and the shape of it is really helpful to get into tricky spots. I highly recommend it but would say you should get the one with the case, that’s great va...

  48. Must have


    This sponge is a must have for every makeup collection. Been through sooo many in the last few years. Love them
  49. So good


    My favourite blender !
  50. makes foundation smooth


    makes my foundation super smooth, i really liked this
  51. Best sponge


    I have gone through a couple of these in the past few years. They are so soft and apply makeup flawlessly. I cannot fault them!
  52. Great Dupe to a Beauty Blender!


    Exactly the same as a beauty blender yet almost half the price.
    Can be used both damp or dry!
    Gives an excellent smooth finish to foundation and concealer!
  53. Great sponge


    Cheaper alternative as the beauty blender and does the same job.
  54. The best makeup sponge


    It’s the perfect applicator for applying a flawless base love it I’ve tried many other brands and this is the only one I use now and I recommend it to everyone.
  55. soft sponge


    i used these for quite sometime, it does the job of blending out foundation and concealer etc. the sponge is soft, this doesnt beat my original beauty blender though, but this is really good for the price so if you cant commit to paying for the beauty blender, this will be my second recommendation for makeup sponges
  56. Great affordable sponge!


    I use this to blend out foundation even after using a brush as it gives such a flawless and natural finish. Can also be using for cream products like blush and bronzer and even to press powders into the skin! Be careful when washing while wet as it is very soft and can be easily torn.
  57. Good product


    Perfect for applying foundation. The only downside if you need to wash it often to make it clean.
  58. not inlove


    really didn't love this, it makes you need so much foundation and I didn't get a better blend then if I used a brush
  59. great dupe for beauty blender


    Bought this rather than the beauty blender and it gives a nice natural finish to my foundation. Only thing is don't apply product directly onto the sponge as it tends to soak in product.
  60. My go to for years


    I have been using these sponges forever. Very handy tool at getting that perfect foundation coverage. Worth your money
  61. Not the best


    I did like this however I did not love it. It soaks up so much product. It does blend my foundation well but for how much product it soaks it is not worth it.
  62. Beautiful!


    I also love to use it to blend all makeup including bronzer and blushes!I love this sponge for a flawless foundation finish!
  63. Amazing!


    Just as good if not better than a beauty blender!
  64. Fantastic


    Gives a good smooth base and absorbs less than the beauty blender. easy to clean and easy to use
  65. favourite sponge


    I've tried a few sponges and I always go back to this one. It is affordable and smooths my foundation and is pretty durable! I replace it when I feel it's starting to get unhygienic, I've never had to replace it for rips or tears.
  66. Go to sponge


    Another quality real techniques product. This sponge is perfect for applying liquid foundation. Leaves me feeling dewey and flawless.
  67. Good


    This sponge works well for blending my foundation on my face and neck
  68. Such a great sponge!


    Such a great sponge and a great price! I love it :)
  69. Game changer


    Just damp your sponge with some setting spray before use and the application will be amazing. Such a great price and pleasure to use. I cannot justify spending double the money for a Beauty Blender which is basically the same thing. ICONIC.
  70. Great!


    I love this sponge for a flawless foundation finish! I also love to use it to blend all makeup including bronzer and blushes!
  71. Better than a Beauty Blender


    I prefer this over the pricier beauty blender.

    I use this to bake and it creates a more defined line and also works well for blending.

    If you are a frequent traveller I recommend purchasing the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge with Case, which is the same price.

  72. Love the real technique sponges!


    I love the miracle complexion sponge! Works great like a beauty blender! Helps blend your foundation and concealer effortlessly!!
  73. Amazing!


    Doesn't soak up my foundation and leaves an airbrushed finish. I love this sponge, its large and very soft. Easy and comfortable!!
  74. The best of the best!


    I have purchased this sponge many times because it is so good! It blends beautifully and lasts a long time. This is my go to makeup tool.
  75. Value for money


    Great sponge, blends so well and super soft. I would say its just as good as some of the more expensive brands!
  76. Great!


    Such a nice blending sponge. its way cheaper than the beauty blender and works just as well.
  77. Best sponge ever!


    It's really soft and can make foundation look really nice on the face. The shape of it is reasonable as well, which is suitable for face. But I think it doesn't have a good quality or I use it too much? It has some cracks in a short time.
  78. Great product


    Blends makeup flawlessly. Works just as well as the original beauty blender, but half the price!
  79. very soft hight quality

    Chele Pagno

    At first I thought was little expensive, but when I bought it I understood why.
    The quality is wonderful, extremely soft and when we apply makeup with it the makeup lasts much longer.
    Worth every penny, loved it the same quality of that expensive beauty blender.
  80. A good product, doesn’t last too long though


    I think this is a good beauty blender dupe, the application looks good with this sponge. I am very careful with my sponges but did find this one tended to deteriorate a lot quicker than other sponges, even with careful cleaning.
  81. Amazing


    This is my go to sponge. It blends my foundation flawlessly
  82. As good as the best.


    I bought this instead of another major brand blender because of the lower price point. It doesn't soak up too much product, and it's very soft and easy to use. The pointy end is just right for applying concealer at the inner corner of my eye, and I actually tip the sponge upside-down to use the round, flat edge to apply concealer under my eyes, since the size and shape is pretty similar to the eye...

  83. Favourite sponge and way to apply foundation


    I love this sponge!! It creates such a beautiful, even, blended finish, and easy to use. I find it used best dampened, which stops it from soaking up too much product during application. They last for ages, especially if washed thoroughly and regularly. Great for anyone, and I would definitely recommend this to beginners too. I have bought many of these and will continue to.
  84. like


    really like this sponge. very soft when used wet and a good price
  85. Great tool


    This is a great make-up tool. Helps blend product well.

    The shape is perfect to hold, and the edges are suitable for different parts on your face.

    I personally didn't find this too soft/ absorbent.
  86. really easy application


    I love this sponge, its large and very soft. Doesn't soak up my foundation and leaves an airbrushed finish.
  87. Great make-up tool


    This is a great make-up tool. Helps blend product well.

    The shape is perfect to hold, and the edges are suitable for different parts on your face.

    I personally didn't find this too soft/ absorbent.
  88. Flawless makeup


    A quality alternative to the beauty blender that evenly blends makeup products in both its damp and dry forms and leaves skin looking blurred and flawless. Absorbs only minimal product if at all and is durable!
  89. amazing


    this particular sponge is a dupe for the beauty blender. But I feel like this feels softer and a little bigger. I love the little curve. Blends like dream
  90. Love it!


    A pro product for blending and is a good size and shape for fixing concealer.
  91. Amazing Sponge


    this sponge is literally amazing at blending out foundation and baking your face, it leaves you looking FLAWLESS
  92. best beauty blender


    this is such good beauty blender and its a dupe for beauty blender. great for the price
  93. Good


    This blends my foundation so seamlessly. This is soft and large enough so I can do my makeup quickly
  94. Awesome Makeup Sponge


    Such a great alternative to the beauty blender. Blends makeup seamlessly and makes everything look so natural. I find this one holds up so much better than other beauty sponges. I find the texture of the sponge is perfect for me, not too firm but also not too soft either.
  95. affordable dupe


    Much cheaper alternative to the beauty blender and does a fantastic job at setting my makeup into place. I even use it for moisturisers
  96. Works well


    Works very similarly to the original 'beauty blender' and it is much more affordable. Applies foundation well and does the job!
  97. Love Love!


    This is a great alternative to the infamous beauty blender. It is great for foundation/ cream blusher application. It is also much more affordable with a great quality!
  98. Favorite sponge!


    Such a good dupe for the beauty blender! Love how smoothly it applies my foundation and it doesn't soak up to much product!
  99. Best quality beauty blender!


    I have been using this beauty blender for many years now as its the best quality, it lasts and it covers blemishes very well. I use the other site to blend concealer under my eye and its so gently. Always go back to this sponge, even though it is expensive, it is worth it!
  100. not for me


    this is a soft sponge and extremely large. could work for a lot of people but for me it was just TOO soft . found it soaked a lot of product up and had to go over the same spot to cover my redness.
