I love the concept but the material needs improving for dry sensitive skin. My skin was itchy and irritated. By the evening, I got an allergic reaction. These aren't piggy bank friendly either so this is a 'NO NO for sensitive acne prone skin.

Best beauty sponge by far! I've tried several but nothing beats this one. I use it damp and it doesn't soak up that much product. It blends my makeup in flawlessly and doesn't feel harsh on the skin. I use dabbing motions and it gives my face an airbrush look. It is expensive but worth it!

I have tried many cheaper versions of the beauty blender, and they do not stand up to the beauty blender. The beauty blender is soft and feels amazing on the skin! Make sure you get it wet first before you use it! But of course squeeze out the excess. My only downside is I have to instantly clean my blender right after I use it so I can get the product all out.

don't get me wrong, it works perfectly and i love it.It blends perfectly ofcourse, lovely material,gorgeous application of any liquid or powder( dabbing lightly, remember not to drag/rub into your skin too hard as this doesn't help applying the product properly) BUT the price isn't what it should be! Many other brands have blender sponges exactly the same at a much much cheaper price! £5/6 instead of £16 for a different name such as RealTechniques? YESPLZ! they work just as good, ignore rumours of the sponge soaking up the product more in dupes, they're JUST AS GOOD, i promise!

Honestly, whoever decided to make beauty blenders is an absolute god send, I always used my BH cosmetics brush so apply my foundation but now, I use my beauty blender and it provides such good coverage and I am not going back to brushes.

this beauty blender is better than all the fakes it doesn't absorb much product so this means you are left with more, it looks pretty to use and also gives you a flawless face if using the right foundation, kindest regards amira

I love the original beauty blender sponge and have come to the conclusion that it is better than any other , I have tried endless beauty sponges and none of them have been as good as the original , although as a dupe I would recommend the real techniques blending sponge , I find that the beauty blender makes my foundation and concealer have perfect coverage and end up with a flawless finish , I love the softness of the beauty blender and like how I do not have to press hard with it to blend out everything which is better for my skin ! Overall I love the beauty blender !

The Beauty Blender or as others like to call it The 'Beauty SPONGE' is a very popular beauty tool for applying base products. Most of us have all seen the Beauty Blender or heard of it in the media or even friends and it is quickly becoming the new standard tool for applying products. From it being foundation, concealer, any cream base products and even loose translucent powder, the beauty blender never fails to give a flawless, natural look. It's very controllable and the shape is just PERFECT for using, this tool enables you to build up coverage to the desired look/outcome.

I do quite like this beauty blender however I'm not the biggest fan of any beauty blender whatever brand I struggle to apply foundation with it and I tend to use a brush. But I do use it for primer or strobe cream. I was shocked to how big my beauty blender turned when I put it under water its a pretty good blender. However it wouldn't be a necessity to repurchase

I first bought the beauty blender after a lot of procrastinating, lol, it costs a lot for what it is, but, I'm not disappointed. When I use this for my foundation it makes it look so much more flawless than using a brush (although I've never used an Artis brush). I've tried using other sponges, but this one is really the best I've used!

Absolutely fantastic for blending foundation- these silicon sponges on instagram these days will not give you the same flawless coverage the damp beauty blender has-it just makes your skin look perfect . The smaller sponges dampened are great for applying loose powder under eye as well- since I bought my beauty blender I have not gone back to a foundation brush!

I've been using my Beauty Blender for over a year now and I have to say, it's the one tool that my Makeup bag cannot be without, and I've got my sisters and Mum using one each too!
Dampened with water, it blends liquids and creams seamlessly to give a flawless finish each time, helps with powder baking, and even to press in any makeup holding spray, (Fix+ etc), to ensure that my makeup lasts all day.
Top Tip: Wash after every use so it's always ready to use next time, and I use either the Beauty Blender Liquid Cleanser, Baby Shampoo or a Tea Tree Face Wash until the water runs clear.

I got a cheaper one which was hard even when dampened it was awful to use my make up looked bad. But then I purchased one of these bad boys and what a difference really does help with my make up, easy to use to blend out

So, I've been buying beauty blenders for a few years now, on and off switching to cheaper alternatives, brushes, sponges and what not. Nothing compares. It blends liquids and creams flawlessly. I wouldn't recommend using powders as it tends to clog the pours of the sponge. My favourite is the black one. Love love love this sponge. It is worth the hype.
