Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge Review

If you read my February favourites you would have seen this beauty before on my blog.

I purchased the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge a few weeks ago from Boots at £5.99. It's the cheapest of all the Real Techniques products.After a good few weeks of testing it out it's safe to say that it is my favourite.

Many of you may have seen this being compared to the American beauty blender. I haven't tried it as it's so expensive for a sponge! Plus I have no idea where to buy it in the UK. That being said I think this sponge is a steal for £5.99.

It has three sides: a rounded side, a precision tip and a flat edge. I tend not to use the rounded side for applying my foundation. I largely apply it with the flat edge, I use dabbing and stippling motions to even out the foundation on my face. The flat edge is excellent at getting underneath the eyes to push concealer onto the skin. The precision tip is the perfect size to help conceal spots with gentle pushing motions.

Please excuse how dirty my sponge is, I've been busy and haven't had time to clean it.

I much prefer this sponge to a brush because it doesn't leave strokes on my face. It leaves a smooth flawless application, much like you've been airbrushed.

The only downside I've found with this product it's started to wear a little and I'm not sure if this is from washing it. I try and wash it every time I've used it as the sponge can build bacteria and I don't want to be spreading it all over my face. Do you have any recommendation's that you've found work to clean your sponge without damaging it please let me know!
