REAL TECHNIQUES MIRACLE COMPLEXION SPONGE
The other day in a very spur-of-the-moment Boots trip, I found myself walking out with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. (When I saw 'walking out', I did actually pay haha). It's been an item I've wanted to try for a while now, so I had high expectations.
When I got this out of the packet, the first thing I noticed was the size. It's much smaller than I anticipated, but later I did realise that with a bit of water, it almost doubles and becomes less dense - my kind of sponge.
The shape seems the thing that makes this sponge so special, as there is three areas to chose from. These include the pointed tip (great for the crevices of the face), the flat edge (good for under the eyes especially) and the curved section (I prefer to use this to cover large areas quickly).
So, considering everything; I should adore this sponge. But... the problem is I don't. I thought we'd click straight away and become best base friends, but I certainly favour my Expert Face Brush over it. Don't get me wrong - it's a good sponge, but I just prefer to buff away quickly instead of tediously tap at small spaces. Maybe that's just me.
If you are willing to put the extra time in, the finish is darn pretty. However, for me in the mornings when I'm rushing out of the door... nah. I think I'll save it for the weekends.
