I have just changed my sponge and this is the last one inside the pack as it is a 2-sponge package
The last time I changed the sponge was last August. I am not sure how I feel about this as it only lasted for a couple of months. It is a deal breaker for me. Yes it is truly an affordable product and yet it does the job. The life span is not very impressive though. This is what hindered me in the past to continously purchase this.
But you know, you get what you pay for. Interestingly enough, a couple of months is just really rough. I remember using this beauty sponge almost everyday in the past and it lasted me minimum 3 months. I don’t know what happened but it seems like the sponge is not the same anymore. Either I got a replica or it is just how it is now.
Let me know your thoughts about this if you have this sponge. I really want to know if I am not the only one or if I truly got a non-original item.
According to their website,
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge is a makeup sponge ideal for applying liquid foundation smoothlessly.
It is made with latex free foam.
The sponge has 3 sides:
Use the sponge round sides to blend larger areas of your face
the precision tip to cover blemishes and imperfections
and the flat wedge side to contour around your eyes and nose
The Miracle Complexion Sponge can be used damp for a dewy glow or dry for fuller coverage. It can be used with foundations, concealers, tinted moisturizers for a natural luminous finish.
To be honest I like using a sponge for both my concealers and foundation.
And I think that the base make up is flawless and I always get the impression that my make up lasts long when I do this upon application.
100% Cruelty-Free, Vegan, and Latex Free. It is Dermatologist tested that is safe for sensitive skin!
Fortunately I never encountered any problems using it. My skin likes it. So for me that is the most important thing aside from longevity.
Just like all beauty sponges they last more if you care for them enough, it is advised to wash it after each use. Well, given the skin condition that I have , I am really careful about this.
They also advise to replace the sponge every 30 uses. And I appreciate that. I mean, I think that is valid enough but.. I use my sponges until they wear off, have some tear or mold then that is the time I will have to replace them! Lol! Am I the only one?? Hahaha
Real Techniques is one of the first brands to bring prestige quality at a great value to the beauty obsessed around the world. Year 2011 was when they strarted creating tools and accessories for make up. They have various products for applying liquid foundation, powder as well as for body make up.
I am not really sure if I’d purchase this again. I am always open to trying out others. But if you want something affordable and does the job then I think I can say this is a good one. Again, we get what we pay for…
