      Comments about Real Techniques Prep + Prime Limited Edition Set:

      I found these at an ULTA store and was skeptical at first if it was worth getting everything that is included in this set. I also hadn't searched for reviews to see what others say. However, a customer service rep convinced me that they were worth and yes they truly are!

      I already have used the blender sponge before and loved it. The brush I have used to apply my primer and moisturizer and it does a fantastic job at spreading it evenly. What I loved the most was the cooling ball for your eyes! It keeps very cool and perfect for applying under eye cream and massaging it in. I saw the difference right away! I loved it. I sometimes use potted face moisturizers and creams and hate when I can't get all of the product out. The little stick tool that came in this set definitely helps with that!

      Overall this was an amazing purchase and worth every penny!

        Comments about Real Techniques Prep + Prime Limited Edition Set:

        I bought this not expecting much. I already loved the sponge and figured why not try the other stuff off. I like the eye wand especially in the morning. I am a little puffy in springtime due to allergies. I noticed an immediate difference. I also like the brush for potted moisturizer. I haven't needed the spatula yet but am sure I will. Overall I was pleasantly surprised at how much I use this.

            Comments about Real Techniques Prep + Prime Limited Edition Set:

            I finally found this set at my Ulta and I am so happy I did. The moisturizer, serum, and primer brush applicator is wonderful. It allows me to avoid contamination in my potted products and applies my products thinly and consistently all over my face. The eye "roller" was my main reason for wanting this collection and I am not disappointed by it. I use it to apply my eye cream and to massage the vessels under my eyes in order to release tension and constricted blood flow which creates the bags and bruised look under your eyes. This tool breaks it apart and definitely helps the appearance of my bags. As for the blender and holder, who doesn't love those. The real techniques version is my favorite to work with given it's versatility and having a storage stand is much nicer than having it rolling around your sink or make-up bag. I even like having the orange "product receiver", it makes sure I can get every bit of product from my jars and tubes without contaminating the products. With the tubes I simply cut the tapered end, use the receiver to get the product out and then place the packaging in a sealable plastic bag for safe keeping. Again I looked everywhere for this collection and thanks to Ulta I now own it and loving it!

              Comments about Real Techniques Prep + Prime Limited Edition Set:

              I highly recommend this set of Real Techniques. I use the prep brush to apply my moisturizer and sunscreen on my face. The sponge is awesome and I like the stand that it comes in. I bought this set because I wanted the under eye reviver that it comes with. I like using it especially with eye cream. But after only 2 times of use the aluminum ball has fallen out already. I tried to glue it back with gorilla glue but it's just not the same anymore. So disappointing because that 's the best part in the set. I would buy it again just to get the under eye reviver and I can always use the other parts as a replacement.

                Comments about Real Techniques Prep + Prime Limited Edition Set:

                I purchased this set to help me in applying skincare. I use the spatula to scoop out my cream cleanser and other creams that are in jars so they are not contaminated by my fingers. The brush is excellent for applying masks!! Firm yet soft. Applies mask evenly and smoothly. I use the metal ball wand with my eye cream. The metal ball is SO soothing and cooling. I imagine you could pop it in your freezer for a few minutes to really help de-puff the under eye area. And I use the sponge for my liquid foundation. I like the sponge stand too! All in all, I definitely love this set. It's helped improve my daily skincare routine.

                    This is a great new set of brushes. The brush solved a problem for me of spreading an oil on my face that I just couldn't get using my fingertips to spread evenly. Love also the eye cream applicator. This set is definitely worth the price.

                    • Q:

                      I am curious what the handle of the flat brush is made out of...I like the idea of it for applying masks but have heard that one should avoid using tools made of metal for clay masks (or other clay-based products). 1). Is that true? and 2). Does this brush have a metal ferrule?

                      Thank you! :)

                        Hi Nicole,

                        The handles are made from aluminum. I checked with our brand team and they do not recommend getting masks on the ferrules, as it can disintegrate the glue. They did say that you could also contact your mask company (whoever you buy) for their recommendation as they will know how their product will react with metal.

                        Thanks!
