    One of the best sponges I have ever tried. It really makes the foundation feel like its gliding on and into your skin, not just laying on top of the surface. Love it!

                  I used a Beauty Blender for a long time and really liked it, but its quite expensive for a piece of foam. I tried a few others but they all fell short. But I had good experiences with Real Techniques brushes, so I decided to give their blender a try. It is the best "knock off" blender I've tried! It is VERY comparable to the Beauty Blender and might even feel better on my skin, honestly. I am very happy with it, especially considering the low price point!

                    Asked on 8/3/2017 by Jasmine from San Antonio tx,US

                      A:

                      Hi Jasmine,

                      There are certain situations where that phrase "you get what you pay for" is true. But I don't think this is one of them. Our Miracle Complexion Sponge is, without a doubt, our most popular item in the Real Techniques line not only because it's affordable, but also because it is high quality.

                      One of the reasons I would probably recommend going with the Miracle Complexion sponge is its affordability. Because of the porous nature of these sponges, you will want to change it out every 90 days or so, based on how you use it. If it was something you bought once every year, a splurge might be the way to go - but because you will need to replace it pretty often, your wallet might like it better if you went with the Miracle Sponge.

                      And, you can also buy our Twin Pack Miracle Complexion Sponge and save a few bucks (http://www.ulta.com/miracle-complexion-sponge-set?productId=xlsImpprod12231055) or our Four Pack and save even more (http://www.ulta.com/4-miracle-complexion-sponges?productId=xlsImpprod15361251)!

                      If you do a search for Beauty Blender vs Miracle Sponge on Google or YouTube, you will probably find a lot of people saying that the Miracle Sponge is the way to go. I tend to agree with them! :)

                      Thanks!

                      Hi Kiyeera,

                      Great question.

                      After washing, make sure all excess moisture is squeezed out from the sponge. Store it out in the open so it can air dry. I usually place it on my soap dish or on a dry wash cloth. The one thing we do not recommend is to put it in a closed environment where air can't get to it (like a case or a drawer).

                      Depending on how often you use it, make sure you replace it every 60-90 days.

                      Thanks!

                      Hi Leah,

                      Good question - and, based on my experience, I'll answer it as best I can, since I do think the Miracle Complexion sponge is very bouncy. :)

                      The one thing I remind a lot of people of is that these sponges are kind of like cookies - they are made in batches, and sometimes certain batches are slightly softer than others. Overall, I think this item is the most bouncy sponge we make.

                      Hope that helps!

                      Hi Min,

                      Great question! Depending on how much makeup you use, you should clean the sponge every couple of days, for sure. And make sure you replace it every 30-60 days. For people with sensitive skin, I recommend every 30 days.

                      I would not use a daily brush cleanser spray on this item since that won't clean as well as an actual shampoo or wash will. What I would recommend is a Brush Shampoo from our sister brand, EcoTools. It's made with more eco-friendly ingredients and doesn't contain certain chemicals that you might find in other cleansers. That item can be found here: http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-shampoo?productId=xlsImpprod13501085

                  • Q:

                    I purchased this sponge about a month ago. I really like the feel and coverage it gives. I wear light cream foundation makeup 5-6 days a week, only applying in the mornings. After about a month of use, it is flaky away already. That is exactly why I wanted to get away from the other makeup sponges I've been using for years. They don't last long. Is that a normal amount of lifespan to expect?

                      Hi Kristin,

                      We do recommend replacing your sponges every 30-60 days, and if you're using it every single day, you probably want to replace it every 30 days. Or use it every other day and on the days you don't use your sponge, use a brush. You might find that that extends the life a little bit.

                      Thanks - hope that helps!

                      Hi Aynia,

                      For a cream foundation, I would probably use a brush as I think you will get more use out of your makeup with a brush on cream, rather than the sponge. There are two foundation brushes I would recommend.

                      The first is our Expert Face Brush, which would give you medium to heavy coverage based on its bristle density & cut:

                      http://www.ulta.com/expert-face-brush?productId=xlsImpprod4260015

                      The other brush comes in our Flawless Base Kit and it's actually my favorite brush in the collection. It's the Buffing Brush; it's like the Expert Face brush, but the bristles are less dense and a bit fluffier, so it gives you a bit more of a light to medium coverage:
