    Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Diamond Sponge:

    I love this blending sponge. I just bought my third. So I guess you can say I'm a fan. Its extremely soft. I use it to apply foundation. I use it wet. Definitely a must have. Its cheaper than a beauty blender and I think its better too.

    Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Diamond Sponge:

    I really like this sponge. The really sharp point it great for concealer and baking the face. The flat side i use for foundation. I find this sponge works well, blends as well as another Real Techniques sponge. It also super soft and squishy.

        I love the look because I do love my diamonds. I thought it was just the cutest. I love applying my makeup every morning. I haven't clean it yet but I'm sure that won't be a problem. The fact that sisters were the creator of this product is what caught my attention after the diamond shape. The packaging is lovely and I can place my diamond back on the display once done. Love it!!

                    • Q:

                      I used dish soap to clean this sponge (that I got about two weeks ago) and I've cleaned it twice. It's already tearing up and falling apart at the tip. Now I have to replace it already. What's the best product (that is oil-free!) to use to clean this applicator?

                        Hi Rosie,

                        I'm so sorry that's happening to your sponge!! I think the dish soap ingredients may be too harsh for the material the sponge is made of. I'm going to recommend an amazing cleanser from our sister brand, EcoTools.

                        It's their Makeup Brush Cleansing Shampoo and it's found here: http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-shampoo?productId=xlsImpprod13501085

                        EcoTools is a more nature-based brush line and because of that, this shampoo is free from some of the harsher chemicals found in dish soap and other cleansers. Hope that works!

                    • Q:

                      I purchased this item for the first time and it is so incredibly soft. I can't wait to use it but it has a really nice smell (almost like perfume) and my skin is very sensitive to any type of fragrance. So my question is do these sponges have any fragrance or are they soaked with anything at all?

                        HI there,

                        We do not include any fragrance in any of our sponges. I'm so glad yours had such a nice smell, though! :)

                        Thanks.

                        A:

                        Hi des,

                        There are certain situations where that phrase "you get what you pay for" is true. 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)!

                        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!
