Most Helpful Positive Review Best Beauty Blender Competitor!
I absolutely love this! When I came across this on the website, I thought is this another generic hard like sponge, or is this another real deal or cheaper alternative to the beauty blender! I bought it, and I loved it. At first I didn't know what I was doing because there were no directions. To dampen or not to dampen, so I tried both ways and yes you are suppose to dampen it. For those who are a budget buyer like myself, this is gonna be your best friend! It blends the same as a beauty blender, gives you amazing flawless coverage, and such a healthy glow. Amazing for all skin types and a bonus for those who have dry skin like me, because when dampen it adds extra moisture to the skin. The only con is, it is hard to wash, and it takes longer to get the soap out. Also when squeezing it compared to the beauty blender you will notice it loses its shape a little while the beauty blender stays in tact! I'm afraid it may give up on me early, but overall you get a bang for your buck and can't beat the price! I have a full on review and beauty blender comparison on my channel http://www.youtube.com/ReesieCherie I would love your feedback!
Most Helpful Critical Review They have changed!!
So annoyed and disappointed I have to give this rating but I'm so fuming as I loved these sponges I bought 2 last year and used them constantly was amazed at how smooth my foundation looked when using them. So decided to buy 2 more this year and their is a significant difference now. They are not as soft and don't soak up water effectively and expand to give the gorgeous softness for an airbrush effect as before. They feel rough on my face and dragging feeling when I apply my foundation. Also when I wash them only after one wash it's started to break up and tear apart. I won't be purchasing anymore unless they go back to the old ones. :'(

Just didn't love it. Absorbed a lot of the product and I ended up putting too much foundation on trying to compensate.
Smooth application of foundation
Jess from Riverdale, Utah
I have tried this wet and dry with IT Bye Bye foundation and it works great either way. I don't know if it's the foundation formula or the sponge, but it's difficult to get the sponge clean afterwards. Sponge has held up to multiple washes and is probably a month old with only a few cracks/tears. Still works great though.
It really blends well.

I just put the makeup on the blender and the apply the makeup
GRT from United States
I use this product for blending in my foundation and concealer. It blends well and helps for the product to soak into the skin and not just sit on top.
Everyone needs this!
Crystal from Burtonsville
This by far is the best makeup sponge I have ever used. I tried to buy different ones that may be cheaper and honestly nothing compares to this quality. After washing the sponges, the make applies so naturally. I find this work best after washing with hot/warm water. One of my sponges lasted me over 6 months.
Great alternative to Beauty Blender

I used this for my foundation and it blended perfectly

I love how it applies & blends my foundation. It durable unlike other brands I've tried before that rip & fall apart quick. These are my go-to beauty blenders
Hands down better than a Beauty Blender
Norcalbeezy from St Helena, CA
Really really good! I've been an avid beauty blender user for years.. and have gone through so many of them. Finally I found this RT Sponge, and if anyone is considering trying it, just do it!
I'd say it's very comparable in the texture and bounce to a beauty blender. Some cheaper sponges tend to be really firm so it's not very comfortable patting the makeup on your face.
I was really surprised it didn't soak up much foundation the first time I used it. Usually I have to add an extra pump or two if foundation the first time using a new sponge. This RT Sponge blended my foundation really well. Seems like I spend a lot let time blending my foundation in around my jaw line with this sponge. It just makes the foundation go on a lot smoother and blends out any possible think lines.
All in all... I highly recommend!
Rarely used but had toss
Grace from California
Bought these blenders in the hopes of applying foundation like a pro. I liked beauty blender sponges but these didn't last. Used maybe 10 times, washing after each use. Didn't wash these 2 sponges for several months [copied the beautiful Alicia Keys & went makeup free for a while] so I'm not sure if that's why they fell apart. I would probably RT sponges again if I couldn't get my hands on the Eco Tools beauty blenders. Have several of those and they're holding up strong.

Very soft easy to use as well as easy to clean
Favorite beauty blender
Loren from California
This beauty blender makes me foundation and concealer go on soooo smoothly. I also use this after i finish my makeup routine so i can blend everything in and look flawless and dewy. I highly recommend!
Amy from Columbus Ohio
I don't understand the hype about this, i got it wet like I do my beauty blender and started to use it and all it did was soak up all my foundation. I had to use twice as much as I do with a beauty blender . & it didn't even blend or apply good. Confused how this has such good ratings .
Stop spending $20 on a sponge
Mara from Texas
I tried the real techniques complexion sponge for my foundation and was amazed. When wet it's almost triple the size of my beauty blender and it has the angled edges which really help when applying foundation. I love it and am embarrassed I was spending $20 for a sponge all this time.
Nice foundation applicator
Chrissy P from Ridley
Easy to use & applies foundation nicely
zoey from pa

Never fails me
Gigi Marie from NYC
I use this sponge damp and it expands to a decent size and it blends my foundation and even my concealer when I choose to wear makeup. It also is easy to clean (I use the beauty blender solid cleaner) and it works really well.
Really good sponge!! Not too hard, not too spongy.
Alasha from Michigan
This sponge is perfect for everyday. It's budget friendly and applies my foundation really well. I like the flat end for easy application.
charley from Florida
so soft a perfect for blending
Better than a beauty blender
Lauren from Los Angeles
I love the consistency, the flat edge, and the price! This blends better than a beauty blender and doesn't absorb the foundation like most copies. I also love the flat edge and use that part on my whole face, not just my eyes. 10/10 recommend.
Great for the price
Amy from MD
Great sponge, inexpensive
Meredith from Parkersburg, WV
Just like beauty blender, if not better, and much cheaper. Applied my makeup nicely and evenly. I would recommend to a friend.

I used this for my liquid foundation on my face and it blended well. It didn't take as long as it does with the brush.
