      I love these sponges! It doubles its size when wet and they really do their job! I use them for all over my face and it leaves a nice glow finish vs a brush that leaves streak marks. I got recommended these by an employee in Ulta and she knows what's good!

          This is a great dupe for the Beauty Blender and it's great value for money too.Pretty much does everything it claims to do..though mine started wearing off a little sooner than I would have liked (by 6 months).Otherwise this is a good product, blends make-up well and gives a very natural and flawless finish, I don't go too heavy with make-up so can't say about how it fares when people layer more than 2-3 products.

          Keep one wet and one dry. The wet one to blend out cream/liquids and the dry to absorb excess product as well as setting the overall look with powder

              Seriously this works magic. It soooo good and the price is amazing. Each sponge last anywhere between 3-5 months, just depending on how often you wash it. Personally I recommend washing it after every use.

                I love these sponges! I really like the flat surface for blending large surfaces and the pointy end for the crevices and under my eyes. I personally like to slightly dampen the sponge before use. I use this for all my cream products, it does a better job than my high end brushes.

                    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!

                    A:

                    Hi Megan,

                    Thanks for your question on this crowd-favorite Miracle Complexion Sponge! One of the (many) wonderful things about this little sponge is that you can use it wet or dry, depending on the product you have and the look you are going for. The rule of thumb, according to our pro makeup artist sisters & the genius behind the brands (Sam & Nic Chapman) is to use the sponge wet when you're using liquids or creams, and dry when you're using powders.

                    Now, you can definitely use it dry if you are using liquids/creams - absolutely. But they have found that if you pair the sponge with the consistency of the product you're using, you will get optimal results. Wet with liquid, dry with powder. Just make sure that, especially if you're using liquids, you clean it thoroughly, squeeze any excess moisture out of it and leave it to dry in a cool, open place.

                    Thanks and hope that helps!
