Sponge Worthy: The Beauty Blender Sponge
Who were the early fans? Patti aka Cavewoman and Julia from All About The Pretty.
What makes it "sponge worthy"? It might look like an ordinary sponge. But I think there might be some pixie magic in the pores. It manages to give a flawless application within minutes. You also use less foundation. This is a huge benefit when you wear La Mer every day. It covers imperfections in a way that I did not know was possible.
How do you use it? You dampen the beauty blender sponge and then towel it dry to remove excess water. You then dip it into your favorite foundation, concealer, creme blush and powders. I have only tested it with foundation so far.
You bounce the sponge up and down your face. This bouncing technique leaves your make up looking smooth, even and actually flawless. I have never been able to achieve results like this with a brush or my fingers.
The pointed end of the sponge is used for hard to reach areas and gives more controlled application.
How do you clean it? They created their own called blender cleanser. It is scented with lavender.
When you are ready to replace your sponge, you can send it to blender sender to have it recycled.
The sponge is latex free and is soy based.
