        Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge Set:

        I use this product only to apply my highlight under my eyes, and t-zone area. I prefer this product over the beauty blender(I've tried both) because it performs just as well and doesn't break the Bank. My only tip is to clean the sponge GENTLY to prevent it from tearing, and remove dirt and bacteria that can be easily transferred to the skin.

              After spending the big money for the original "beauty blender," I discovered this little gem....and it is SO MUCH BETTER!! The flat side is ideal for tapping on your foundation, the rounded area is great for applying your setting powder and the corner is great for under eye. I will never buy another sponge/blender!

                • Q:

                  hi there! So I've been told that the quality of the sponge is different from when you first launched it. i was wondering if that is true? For example, I've been told that the "old version" was squishyer, and the current sponges are firmer, a bit harder. So my question is, has the product changed at all since it was first launched?

                    Hi lml,

                    Thanks for your question. The best way I think about our sponges is that they are like batches of cookies - each batch you make has the same ingredients, you "cook" at the same temperature, etc., but each batch might be slightly different for some reason. We have not significantly altered the formulation of our sponge since launch, but from time to time, batches may be slightly softer or a bit firmer. Overall, though, it's the same awesome Miracle Sponge.

                    If you have run into a problem with one of your sponges, please let Ulta know through their Returns section on the website. They are awesome about helping out.

                    Thanks!

                    Hi cltaylor,

                    Great question! While the sponge is designed to absorb liquid, the density of most of the products used (foundations, BB/CC creams etc) is thick enough that you will find that the amount that soaks into the sponge is so very minimal. If you use the sponge wet, it soaks in a bit more liquid; less if you use it dry.

                    Hope that helps!

                    Hi SG,

                    This product is made in China. We have heard from our fans that this product works as well as or even better than the Beauty Blender, for just a fraction of the price. Considering you should be replacing your sponges every 60-90 days, it's definitely a more affordable option for an equally great use!

                    Thanks!

                    Hi Qwertyuiop (cute name - top letter row!)

                    No, that's incorrect. The twin pack is literally two of our single sponges in one package. We don't formulate them differently or make them different sizes or shapes.

                    Thanks.

                    Hi Kara,

                    Such a good question! While the sponge is designed to absorb liquid, the density of most of the products used (foundations, BB/CC creams etc) is thick enough that you will find that the amount that soaks into the sponge is so very minimal. Probably about the same amount that would stay on your makeup brushes.

                    You can use the sponge when wet to get more overall coverage, and you can use it dry to get a bit more of a natural look and feel.

                    Hope that helps!

                    Hi Kristi,

                    Great question. One of the reasons we call this little sponge a "miracle" is because you can use it for so many things! In answer to your question, yes, this works great with both powder and liquid foundations.

                  • Brand Expert

                    A:

                    Hi Kat,

                    We get that one a lot - and it is so important to keep this sponge clean!

                    Here is what I would recommend: If you use your sponge all the time, I would recommend a cleanser that has a bit more cleansing "power", like our Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel. That is Ulta Item #2291546.

                    If you don't use your sponge all the time, or don't use a lot of product, I would recommend a brush shampoo from our sister line, EcoTools. This cleanser is a bit gentler and is made with ingredients that are slightly more eco-friendly. I personally prefer this cleanser. It is Ulta item #2297645.

                    * Whichever you choose, use warm water and get the sponge wet.
                    * Apply a small amount of the cleanser to your hand and massage the sponge all over, taking care to get every surface area.
                    * Rinse the sponge until there is no more cleanser and the water runs clean.
                    * Make sure you squeeze all excess moisture out of the sponge and store it in a cool dry place (I like to use my soap dish). It will need air in order to dry properly.

                    Remember, also, that you will probably need to replace your sponge every 60-90 days.

                    Thanks!
