Bought this at Walgreen's because they were out of single-packaged real technique sponges. This thing isn't hard at all and I don't know where those reviews are coming from unless they made a bad batch of these. It's very soft and absorbs water really well. I get it really wet, wring it out, roll it on a dry porous surface for a few seconds and its ready to go. I find that …Read more

I was drawn to this product due to the low price and similar look to the real techniques sponge. I had the real techniques one for too long, and it was getting nasty. I didn't want to repurchase a new one because I wasn't too ecstatic about it. When I saw this for a low price at Walgreens, I thought that it wouldn't hurt to try. WRONG. Like other reviewers, I could not get this …Read more

Okay, so I wanted to believe that this would work for me despite bad reviews, but it didn't. (I actually bought the wrong beauty blender knock-off and didn't realize it until I left Walgreens). This sponge is way too hard. Like.. so hard I feel like all it did was beat up my face. It's extremely hard to blend makeup with. Kind of feels like putting makeup on with a stone …Read more

Ok so I like this sponge. Yes as others have stated it is harder than the original beauty blender but it works! Do not just mist some fix plus in it and expect it to be soft. U must wet it under running water wring it and repeat. It will expand, soften and blend like a dream! And I use way less foundation when using this sponge rather than a brush.

I had heard a lot of good things about the Beauty Blender sponge, but my budget didn't allow me to pay $20+ for one. So I researched the internet for dupes, and found this at my local Walgreens store.
Should be called "Blending Rock". This thing is super hard, you won't be able to squeeze it even if you dampen it a little. It does not apply product evenly, if you …

I stopped using sponges for makeup application years ago and switched over to brushes. I decided to try this instead of a real beauty blender because its cheaper and looked easier to hold. I bought this at Walgreens because I had remembered one of my ELF flat top brushes (the one I mainly use for concealer) was on its way out and I was nowhere near a Target and couldnt find anything comparable in …Read more

I agree with comment about this being super hard. I too did not open to check in store and when I went to use it the first time was extremely disappointed and angry that I didn't check it!! It's so hard to use and blending products is almost impossible. After trying to soak it in water thinking that maybe it would soften with use , I ended up throwing it out. Complete waste of money!!

I've been in search for a foundation sponge/brush. As a high school student i don't have money to be splurging on sigma brushes or the actual beauty blender (sadly). Overall, i LOVE this beauty blender sponge. It works great, in my personal opinion it's very soft. It says in the packaging " ...will not absorb too much liquid make-up" so from the get-go it's showing …Read more
