The Real Techniques Complexion Sponge has featured many a time on this blog, as soon as I first tried it I was hooked! It made such a difference to applying base; a fuller coverage and gave a nicer finish.
I have only been using the sponge for about a year now and I recently replaced it. I (tried) to wash it every week but, but as the months went on if though it was clean it changed in application. At around £5 per sponge it isn’t too expensive but for what it is some may argue so.
Before I re-purchased the RT sponge I had a few days without it, which is when I came across another alternative. I always like to have a few sponge off-cut packs is for nail art looks around, I used to use the ‘triangles’ to apply base years ago. So I gave one ago again, thinking it wouldn’t be as good as the professional but- it works just as well!
So, I picked up a bag full (30apx) in Primark for around £2 and started to experiment! Since switching to these I tend to use one for a week or so then simple throw away. Of course you could wash it these but it’s easier and hygienic for me this way. I have also noticed that mu skin has feel and looker clearer- I do still suffer with breakouts and this more hygienic use has been helping stop the spread of the demons!
Don’t get me wrong- I still adore the Real Techniques sponge and would recommend it, but using this ‘disposable’ method is really working well for me! So of course I had to share it with you!
Let me know your thoughts on these methods and any other recommendations on the subject! Make sure to leave links etc!
