    Love these sponges. I use to apply my moisturizer and to apply my foundation. Glides on no more missed spots. They wash out easy with soap and water.

        I've been a Beauty Blender user for years. I needed a new one and saw these and thought I'd give them a try. I am so impressed. They are much softer and do not absorb as much product. I use them damp and it feels like I get a better blend with less effort. Also, they dry better. I have 2 that I rotate and they are dry by the next day, where the Beauty Blender would take much longer. I will be using these again!

                I've been using real techniques beauty sponge for a long time now. I recently ordered more without knowing they changed the sponges. The sponge they use now is terrible, does not work like the old ones. Super disappointed.

                  A great inexpensive sponge. Was my go-to but i noticed I needed to replace it pretty often. I wouldnt consider myself rough with them at all, but i think i've bought about 8 of these sponges so far. I recently discovered how great the Sonia Kashuk sponges are, im in love! I love their size and color and overall, best beauty blender out there. SO, yes these are okay, BUT there's def better out there, like Sonia Kashuk's and they're about the same price.

                    I wonder why these sponges are sooo expensive. Two cost me $10. I like using them, better than a brush because brushes are rough on my face and it gets irritated. Other than that awesome product!

                      I first bought this product a few years ago after hearing good things about it online and people comparing it to the beauty blender. It was rough and dense and would soak up a lot of make up. But they have definitely improved the product greatly! I recently decided to try it again and I'm so happy I did. The sponges are soft, light, very bouncy not dense, and applies the liquid foundation and concealer beautifully (I have combo skin, some parts dry some parts oily). Will buy again!!!

                          I have been using this sponge for two years now; I bought it as an alternative to the "pink" one because it is more economically friendly to my pocketbook. It is fantastic, and works amazing!

                                It definitely depends on how much you use your sponges, and how much makeup you use with them, but my rule of thumb is to replace your sponges every 60-90 days, but make sure you are cleaning them regularly in between that replacement time period.

                                Thanks!

                                We have heard from our fans that this product works as well as or even better than the Beauty Blender, for just a fraction of the price. Considering you should be replacing your sponges every 60-90 days, it's definitely a more affordable option for an equally great use!

                                The great thing about these sponges is you can use them wet or dry. If you want a more natural looking finish, you can wet the sponge before you apply foundation. For a more airbrushed look, use the sponge dry.

                                Thanks!

                              hi there! So I've been told that the quality of the sponge is different from when you first launched it. i was wondering if that is true? For example, I've been told that the "old version" was squishyer, and the current sponges are firmer, a bit harder. So my question is, has the product changed at all since it was first launched?

                                Hi lml,

                                Thanks for your question. The best way I think about our sponges is that they are like batches of cookies - each batch you make has the same ingredients, you "cook" at the same temperature, etc., but each batch might be slightly different for some reason. We have not significantly altered the formulation of our sponge since launch, but from time to time, batches may be slightly softer or a bit firmer. Overall, though, it's the same awesome Miracle Sponge.

                                If you have run into a problem with one of your sponges, please let Ulta know through their Returns section on the website. They are awesome about helping out.

                                Thanks!

                              Does this eat up product like the beauty blender does?

                                Hi cltaylor,

                                Great question! While the sponge is designed to absorb liquid, the density of most of the products used (foundations, BB/CC creams etc) is thick enough that you will find that the amount that soaks into the sponge is so very minimal. If you use the sponge wet, it soaks in a bit more liquid; less if you use it dry.

                                Hope that helps!

                                This product is latex-free.

                                Thanks.
