This is a steal! It is a great blending sponge in my opinion. It is firmer than a Beauty Blender, but I actually kind of like that. Also, it has a great "chisel" tip that lets you get in smaller areas, like under the eyes or around the nose. I love the price, and find the shape is very functional. I know beauty sponges really should be replaced frequently (even when washed regularly), so it is so great to find a great bargain option. I find this one and the EcoTools blender are both great options for less!
This sponge is a super cute color and provides a nice edge for small places like under the eye. Unfortunately it's too dense and hard to wet and squeeze out properly. If you aren't a beginner you can still make it work but it's a challenge. The price point is so low it's almost worth it.

Love using this one dry with my oil based foundation! I used it wet when I first got it with another foundation and it was a horrible experience. Too stiff, no bounce in wet form. The bad reviews make sense. However it is quite amazing dry TBH.

i love to use the flat side to apply my setting powder, even though it gets dirty easily i love this sponge

I really wanted to like this sponge but it's just not it. It is so dense and doesn't blend things out well at all. I prefer a spongier, more porous sponge. They just blend better.

Basic blender, perfect for your first one. I use it for all of my face products, and it works well.

This is the second time I bought this and I love it, I just love how soft it is :)

Works better than much higher priced sponges I've purchased.

I have been looking for this mascara for 2 years! The name rubbed off when I found it. I love the wand and its just the perfect application amoujt. The nail polish i got was great and who can't use a good sponge. This is the highest quality and most reasonable priced items. Thank you!

Blends fantastically, and makes my face look flawless!

I love the color and container that the sponge came in. Works very well at blending in foundation.
Jordan J. from US
I didn't have a great experience with this, and it bummed me out. It seemed to really suck up my liquid foundation and not blend it out very well, but maybe this sponge is more for powder products than liquid? Not sure.
Paula P. from US
I use this more for my loose powder than anything. Awesome to dab on shiny areas of my face .
Maureen B. from US
The foundation was good; however the sponge was way too hard and did not soften when wet.
Karie S. from US
I absolutely love this sponge. It's fantastic quality. It's very soft and makes it easy to blend foundation. I don't use it to bake, so I can't speak to that, but this is better than any sponge I've tried, including high end ones.

Used for my concealer, very soft distributed product very well
Denise A. from US
A cool sponge I got it to bake under my eyes and does it's job! It's not stiff but it's also a little bouncy which is great!

This sponge expands to a HUGE size, which is great for fast make-up application. This sponge is very firm, so if this is not your preference, you may want to pass on this one.

I picked up the sponge on a whim because of the price and it didn't disappoint!
It's soft, doesn't shed and keeps its shape.
Marie from Los Angeles
Not a fan of how this sponge absorbs my foundation (Estee Lauder). I have to use double the makeup to get my usual light coverage. Not going to continue with it.
Mattress Foam from California
This is the worst sponge. It's like a chunk of hard mattress foam. Very rough texture and causes makeup to blend with an odd texture.
Doesn't hold moisture when you wet it. Terrible

I absolutely love this sponge. I think I am on my 10th or 11th one. Firm when dry and soft when wet. Does a great job at blending and dabbing without lifting make up. This is my go to. I always buy 2 or 3 at a time.
Mart from CA
I had high hopes for this product as I buy quite a few items from essence. Without wetting it, it was hard. I knew I couldn't judge the sponge by not having it wet so I wet it. It does expand fairly nice I have to say, but it still remained really hard! Don't recommend this item

I don't know why people are saying it's hard. When wet enough, I thought it was super soft. Doesn't cake or absorb too much product.
Set my concealer with powder and it blended like a dream!

So far, I've only used one for foundation blending. We more mature women, especially, need to be sure foundation doesn't sit in creases... that just makes you look old. This was great for that! The second one I got, I plan to use to blend creamy blush.

Haven't tried many but this is the worst
