Comments about Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge Set:

I picked this up as my beauty blender bit the dust. There was a but one get one half off sale and got two, two packs of these. I absolutely love the Real Techniques brushes and have never been disappointed. I find these sponges have an amazing, versatile shape. They are very soft and are wonderful to apply any type of liquid makeup,concealer,or loose powder. You get a great bang for your buck and I now prefer them over the beauty blender! They seem like they will hold up well with time and are easy to clean. They do stain, but even BB stains. I'm truly excited about these! I look forward to using them every morning!!

    An Ulta sales associate recommended these sponges for easy application, and I am so glad she did. The sponge works well when applying my cream foundation. My foundation goes on evenly, and I even use it to apply my blush. Great buy!

      Works great to blend out liquid foundation! I've never tried beauty blender so I can't make a comparison, but with these real techniques sponges I don't really feel a need try anything else. Worth it!

      Best product I've found (and I've tried many) for liquid foundation application. Works even better if you wet it and then wrap it in a cloth or paper towel and gently squeeze out excess water before using. Foundation goes further, applies smoother, and looks great.

                  I love love love this beauty blender it's the perfect shape. I use the flat side daily to bake my highlight and have never had an undereye crease ever since! It's magic! You can use the rest of the blender for all other makeup. I'm a huge fan of real techniques their products never disappoint.

                      The sponges themselves are slightly over 2.5" tall and less than 1" deep.

                      A:

                      Hi mariakathy023,

                      GREAT question!! 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!

                    Do I need to wet the sponge first before I apply foundation (like the Original BB) or should I just apply my liquid/cream foundation with a dry sponge?

                      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!
