I was lucky enough to receive one of the latest beauty products that everyone is talking about at the moment.
The theory is thst this clever little device works as an applicator to apply your foundation leaving a smooth even finish. Its incredibly hygienic too as it can be cleaned easily and, best of all, no product will be absorbed!
Obviously I had to try it! Initially it sounded strange as I have seen a lot of Youtubers using chicken fillets for the same use. Which is just a little bit terrifying if you ask me!
When touching the product for the first time, it does remind me of those infamous bra fillers. It has the same texture too as it’s made from the same substance. It’s actually a lot smaller than I thought it would be. It is so squishy and the temptation to bite into it is unreal! But I put the temptation to the back of my head and tried it out.
First thing you notice is that you only need to use a tiny amount of product at a time as there is no absorption. Normally I use three pumps of my foundation when using a beauty blender but with the silisponge I only used two pumps and had some left on my hand which is an amazing bonus!
The other thing you notice is the noise. It is a strange slapping sound…
Putting the noise aside, I did find it left a beautifully smooth even finish just like the beauty blender. The only improvement I could suggest is that it is made into the same egg shape as the beauty blender. This would make it easier to hold and to allow better application beneath the eyes.
Other than those slight adjustments I would totally suggest you try one for yourself! Especially if like me, you hate the arduous task of cleaning your brushes.

I have been using this sponge for the past week to apply makeup for work and I am absolutely loving it! I really love the finish it leaves my foundation and the hygiene aspect is fantastic!
If you have used one, I would love to know what you think about it!
Lots of love
