The sponge under all sponges. Thé Beautyblender. The little pink sponge that swells up under need the tap.
A few days ago I ordered my first set of beauty blenders and a cleanser at a Dutch online shop. When I opened the package the two beauty blenders and the cleanser were packed together. Only the two beauty blenders were packed in a separate tube.
So enough blabing. Let’s open this bad boy up.
First thing I took out of the box was the cleanser. The cleanser comes in a 150 ml plastic pump bottle. The packaging is very simple. On the front it has the Beauty Blender logo and on top/under the logo it says ‘modernize the way you cleanup. Blender cleanser, the ultimate make up sponge cleanser’. Than next to the logo it has a little banner that says: ‘great for makeup brushes, too!’ So if you ever sun out of baby shampoo to wash your makeup brushes, you can use the Beauty blender cleanser.
On the picture above you can see the pump of the bottle very well.
On the back you have the instructions to use the cleanser. The ingredients are also mentioned on the back.
Ingredients: water, laurel glucoside, peg-7 glyceryl soyate, cocamidopropyl betaine, sodium chloride, phenoxyethanol, citric acid, fragrance.
The cleanser feels like a gel and once you apply it to the sponge it foams a little bit. Once you rub the cleanser in the sponge you can see the sponge getting a bit white. This is the foam of the cleanser. And once you put it under need the tap and squeeze the sponge, the cleanser takes off the make-up. You can repeat this step again if you think the sponge isn’t clean enough.
One the back of the packaging off the sponge you can see the steps of how the sponge works. It also says what kind of products you can use with the beauty blender.
This is how the sponges look when you take them out of the container. Very bright little egg’s.
Time to wet it.
Hold it under the tap and squeeze a few times. You can see the egg grow in your hand. Once it doubled in size, shut the tap of and squeeze one last time to get all the excess water out of the Beauty Blender. Than you can either use the blender just like that or put it in a dry cloth and squeeze even more water out of it. I like to use it without the cloth step.
As you can see on the left is the Beauty Blender full of water and on the right it’s the dry one.
This is my face without make-up. I do not have an even skin. There are a few blemishes and some redness in some arias. (I also didn’t pluck my eyebrows for a very long time in this picture so ignore the bushy eyebrows)
This is my face with one layer of foundation. The foundation I used was the MaxFactor Face Finity All Day Flawless in the shade Light Ivory 40. It is a very build able foundation. But it can look very cakey once you apply too much. You can see it give a very even blank canvas. I still need to use concealer under need my eyes to cover the blue.
The beauty blender blends the foundation really good into the skin. There are no streaks of foundation. It doesn’t clutter up in corners of your face and it doesn’t look like you put on make-up. It still looks like skin.
I love the Beauty Blender. I’ve been using it ever since I bought it. It blends your foundation seamless into the skin. It also cleans very nicely. The cleanser is good. It does the job very well. And because of the pump application you don’t use a lot of the product. So it’s very economical. The price is definitely worth it. I can definitely say that this Fluorescent Pink Sponge is the best sponge under all sponges. And if that means I have to pay a little bit extra to get the great result you get while using this. I definitely would.
