Most Helpful Positive Review Good product overall with few drawbacks
I have been having issues with my highlight getting on my sponges leading to glitter being all over my face in my foundation and concealer. I was excited to see this case available with the sponge thinking it will protect my sponge from other products getting on it. After opening it I realized that the RT logo letters are actually holes in the plastic so some powders can still fall into the container but this will definitely mineralize the issue. I understand the fact that it can't be sealed due to molding so if defiantly serves its purpose. The sponge it self is just like the other real techniques sponges but I can say that this one actually might be a little more bouncy and softer when dampened which is very nice. Will buy again! :)
Most Helpful Critical Review Design Fail!
I have used the Real Techniques sponges and brushes since they launched and absolutely love them. I was excited to see the new travel case. After one week of using the case, the sponge was covered in mold spots! Super bummed because obviously I had to throw it all away. Hopefully RT will redesign the case because I love the idea.

Brought this for a long weekend trip. Never used it before I packed it. Flew home with it and by the time I unpacked the next day the sponge was completely moldy. Never had this happen with a beauty sponge before.
Would recommend! Closest sponge to Beauty blender
Victoria from Washington, DC
Worked great! Better than other sponges I've used. Closest thing to Beauty Blender, much better price! No complaints.

i've used real techniques sponges for years now, and i love the way they seamlessly blend my makeup. when i bought this one, it had mold growing on it within a week. this is unacceptable for a product that goes near your mouth and eyes.
I absolutly LOVE this sponge!!!
Leonie from Fort myers Florida
I use this for foundation,concealor and setting it is ABSOLUTLY FAB !The case is fantastic for drying and on the go makeup bag!!!also the sponge grows a bit when wet for more dewy coverage also super easy to clean and very soft!!LOVE IT!!
Love this sponge and case
Paige from Mi
This case is perfection and the sponge works amazing for foundation application.
More affordable option
IloveEva from Fullerton, CA
I mostly use this for my concealer and finishing powered it serves its purpose. It starts to get funky after about 2 1/2 months or so like it's not as bouncy or spongy seems kinda stiff. Considering the longevity of the product I like the price point.
Best sponge ever!

I will never use a different sponge.
Wonderful Beauty Sponge
kannjewell1998 from TN
I love the real techniques beauty sponges and I have bought them for a long time now. I love the case for the sponge as well. It has holes in it so that the sponge can dry out while being safely stored away.
I would definitely repurchase this over and over again.
Mayra from Houston, Texas
I've purchase the Beauty Blender and didn't repurchase the product. This sponge is amazing, it blends like a dream and I have textured skin (from acne scarring)
my second time buying one
brendluuu from Los Angeles, CA
It's a really nice sponge, soft, expands a lot when dampened and really helps smooth out foundation. This is my second sponge and I'm really excited about the case. Makes traveling and storage a lot easier.
Selena from Arkansas
I ordered this got it on the estimated day to get it but I was missing one.. I got the big orange one but no small one..
Probably won't come back
Jennifer from Washington
I'm coming from an eco tools sponge and I don't really care for this one like I thought I would. I switched brands because I felt like my eco tools sponge didn't last very long, even though it worked really nicely. I might just move on to a beauty blender after this sponge and do it right. This RT sponge just absorbs too much product and makes everything kind of patchy, I end up using my fingers to blend instead.
Better than the beautyblender
sjw522 from Maine
Cheaper, bigger, and comes with a case. Love!
Highly recommend this product in anyone's makeup bag
Sjm from Washington
Using this sponge has saved me money and changed the way my makeup blends and looks on my face. I will buy it again.
Convenient and cute
Kass from Miami
The sponge itself is a bit rough but blends my looks in to the tea the case broke apart easy but it is nice to have for on the go
I love this product in it's entirety
Elizabeth from Prescott, Az
It's convenient and easy to keep clean I'm this cute package, way for travel
Not a durable case.
Cherry from Seattle, Wa
I loved this product for the fact that it would keep everything else clean inside my travel makeup bag and preserve my sponges life as well. Alas, the case is just not very durable. After just a week of traveling with me inside my padded makeup bag, it began to crack down the sides and eventually was no longer usable. They should really review the case on this product, if they revamped it to snap shut tighter and be more durable I would purchase. Although, I would not purchase this one again. :/
Shay from New York
Love the regular Miracle Complexion Sponge on its own (all the women in my family use them as it's a nice, affordable substitution to the Beauty Blender), but the travel case is an added convenient bonus. I don't like when my sponge comes into contact with makeup rolling around in my makeup bag. The case allows for nice, clean separation. Some reviews have mentioned mold spots, but there is no issue as long as the sponge is left to air dry on its own first. There is not really good air circulation, but I don't think it's an issue. I view it as more of a sanitary case, but if you're looking for something to keep the wet sponge isolated right after use, this isn't for you.
Sponge gets 5 stars. Case gets 0
KelLeigh from NYC
First off, these are by far my favorite makeup sponges. They are fantastic and I've reordered them several times now. But this case sucks. I only use it for travel or when i take my sponge with me for the day, and every single time, the sponge ends up moldy immediately. It's not ventilated enough to properly dry, so it stays (i hate this word) moist and warm...aka perfect conditions for bacteria to grow. Stick with a better ventilated case!
Do not buy
Jj from Charlotte, NC
The plastic case did not survive my makeup bag for longer than a month. If you are looking for something durable this isn't it.
Could be a little softer
Chrissy from Ridley
Works good but at first absorbs a lot of product & is a lil hard. Overall I do like this brand of beauty blender
SUPER blendable sponge
Mom2pia from Windsor
very soft sponge and blends concealer and foundation amazingly well, better than most beauty blenders.
Always my go to
Mars from Hawaii
I've already bought two of these, one of my favorite makeup sponge. Really nice easy to use
Stephanie from Shreveport, LA
This sponge is ok & gets the job done, but seems more dense than my ELF sponge. (I really love my ELF spnge.) Also, I washed it for the first time and it has a small rip in it now. My other sponge did not do that. So the sponge works, but I just like my other one better.
R from St. Louis
Great product idea HOWEVER if you wet your sponge when you put on foundation and put it in this case after it WILL grow mold. It is not ventilated enough. Will be repurchasing just the sponge next time.
