Barely, Prep, Blot & Blend Sponge | Skincare

A beauty blender for your skincare? What a genius idea!

I was very pleasantly surprised when this little beauty was popped in my Birchbox (or shall I say Birchbag) this month. At first glance I thought it was just another make up application tool but after reading the handy booklet I found out it was to apply my skincare and prep my face! Who thinks of these things? Such a simple product but oh so handy!

So this is how it works, just like the other beauty blenders on the market the sponge works best damp. So pop it under the tap for a few seconds, squeeze the excess water out and you’re good to go. Unlike the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge it doesn’t increase in size dramatically but the ovoid shape is perfect to blot and stipple your products right into your skin.

As a huge fan of fake nails, eye creams have always been a bit of a hassle for me. With the constant fear of poking my eye out the pointed end fits right under my eyes and lets me get my product exactly where I want it. I’ve been using it with my Elderflower Unperfumed Eye Gel from The Body Shop and it works a treat!

I’m yet to try it with my primer but I’m sure it would work as great, especially if it stops me getting that annoying greasy feeling after rubbing my primer all over my face. So it’s latex free, non- allergenic and odour free too so all you sensitive skinned ladies won’t have any problems.

For just £5.99 I think this is going to become an essential in my make up collection! You can get yours from Birchbox.co.uk

Did you get this in your Birchbox this month too? If so, are you as impressed as me? Let me know below!
