Blotting cushions, not an applicator

By Pamela

from Scottsdale AZ

Pros

  • Cruelty-Free
  • Soft

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Blots excess oil
    • Removes shine

    Comments about Real Techniques 4 Miracle Blotting Cushions:

    I am commenting, because it is unreal just how many people bought this to apply makeup, when it clearly says it was designed as a blotter for excess oil. Then gave it a bad rap when it did not perform in makeup application of foundation or BB cream. Read the box. It works great when used in the way it was designed. I carry spare for touch ups. Small and thin. Better than blotting tissues.

    These are not applicators

    By Captain Obvious

    from Atlanta

    Comments about Real Techniques 4 Miracle Blotting Cushions:

    Dear everyone who posted a review saying these are bad applicators, these are not applicators. Maybe this is why they didn't work well for you? These are used to blot oil throughout the day. Read the item title and know what you are buying before complaining about an items performance.

    I also forgot to add that these are excellent for blotting oil from your face. YOU HAVE TO BUY THEM!

    Great for refreshing makeup with Evian spray.

    By Abs18

    from Somewhere, NY

    Comments about Real Techniques 4 Miracle Blotting Cushions:

    These things are great. Just spray a little Evian on them and blot the crusty areas of your makeup during the day and it is like a miracle (you know you have seen the beauty Vloggers do this). I have the driest, crustiest face and this is the only thing that has ever worked in my whole life. It doesn't come in a little compact like the expensive one we have all seen (that the Vloggers use), so you have to maybe carry them in a zipper bag in your makeup case, but they work. BUY THEM BEFORE THEY DISCONTINUE THIS GREAT PRODUCT. This is not a makeup APPLICATOR, as some may think.

    By Mist

    from Cleveland

    Comments about Real Techniques 4 Miracle Blotting Cushions:

    I'm upset necause people are giving this bad reviews because they bpught it thinking it was to apply makeup, not absorb oil. Read before you buy and give something a bad review.

      Love the product, removes shine and doesn't smear or remove makeup. Just as good as the Beauty Blender Blotterazzi at half the price. I just wish the sponge was larger.

      • Q:

        can these be cleaned? if so, how?
        Asked on 6/23/2017 by pam from college station

          A:

          Hi Pam,

          Great question! The best way to clean these is to use either baby shampoo or a cleanser specifically for brushes/sponges. We have an amazing Brush Shampoo from our sister brand, EcoTools, that is amazing. I love it because it's made with gentler ingredients that a lot of brush cleansers out there. Plus, it smells GREAT!

          You can find that here: http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-shampoo?productId=xlsImpprod13501085&sku=2297645&_requestid=21359453

          Depending on how often you use the blotting cushions, I would recommend washing with the shampoo every two weeks. Rub gently and rinse with warm water till the washing liquid runs clean. Make sure you squeeze all excess water out and leave to dry in a cool, dry place. (Do not store in a case or drawer as air can't get to the cushions).

          Thanks!

        Do these blotters come in a protective case?

          Hi Carly,

          At this time, the blotters do not come with a protective case. But that's a great question and I will take that back to our team!

          Thanks!
