Real Techniques recently released multiple new sponges at Ulta. These included a dual-ended sponge for foundation and contouring, a Miracle Finish Sponge for a more natural look, contouring wedges, blotting cushions, a body complexion sponge and lastly their Miracle Cleansing Sponge. All of these sponges are shaped like their original Miracle Complexion Sponge but I’m assuming have different textures and feelings to them. The only one that really caught my eye, which I decided to purchase, was the Miracle Cleansing Sponge.
The Product I Didn’t Know I Needed:
Originally I was nervous this sponge would be too harsh for everyday use since I do have very sensitive skin. I started off using it every other day just in case it irritated my skin. This turned out to not be necessary. The sponge itself feels rough when dry but when it’s wet it becomes super soft and comfortable. When used with a cleanser on the face it provides the gentlest exfoliation, making it okay for every day use. I used this sponge with my regular Cetaphil cleanser but also tried it with a variety of other cleansers. I even tested this out with a light exfoliater that I use every couple of days and it still worked great.
This is such a simple product to add to anyones skin care routine and can create a huge difference. Any facial cleanser will be amped up to provide a deeper cleanse and a smooth base for make up application. This product is latex-free and retails for $5.99 making it a cheap product to transform any cleanser. Another added bonus of this product is how easy it is to clean after your finished using your cleanser and then set out to dry. On Ulta’s website it is recommend to replace the sponge every 1-3 months.
