These sponges from Real Techniques have changed my life! I bought these on a wim at the beginning of the year and have not looked back. Of course at the time I was a bit reluctant to spend £8 on them but they are totally worth it and as you can see they are well loved! I use them everyday to apply my foundation, I only used to use my fingers to apply my foundation but after using a sponge it changes everything!
I like to soak my sponge and then squeeze it out and then squeeze it in a flannel to dry it even more. I then applying my foundation to my face and then blend in using the sponge. Just my dabbing the foundation in you Crete a flawless even coverage which looks really natural.
I am really bad about washing these sponges as I always forget, but I do try my best to remember. I have found that coconut oil and soap works really well at cleaning the sponges and getting rid of all the left over foundation.
I definelty recommend these sponges as a cheaper alternative to a Beauty Blender.
