                A:

                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!

              I'm prone to break outs. How often should I clean it? Can I spray a daily brush cleaner on it?

                A:

                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

                Hope that helps!

              Is it normal for there to be soap or some sort of foam within this sponge when it is new? I bought it and took it out the package, ran water over it and it started to get extremely soapy as I squeezed the excess water out. I did not put anything on it..

            • 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!

                A:

                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:

                http://www.ulta.com/flawless-base-set?productId=xlsImpprod15361243
