Although the beauty blender is a holy grail in the beauty community, its high price tag leaves us all wanting and searching for an affordable dupe. SPOILER ALERT: As someone who has tried many different “dupes,” I can say with certainty that this is definitely one of the best sponges I have tried, so it is definitely worth checking out! Not to mention that the sponge holder is probably the best thing to ever happen to us beauty lovers. Keep reading for my full thoughts.

The Spongedry, $18.99
Personally, I have struggled in the past with finding ways to store my beauty sponges. But finally, my prayers have been answered… ok, maybe this is a bit dramatic, but I am so happy that they made this product and that it is now a part of my life. The Spongedry is a holder for your beauty sponge, so you don’t have to leave it thrown on your vanity, or sitting in a dusty drawer. Not only does this keep your sponge clean, but you can save vanity space by placing your sponge in its little home, instead of lying around in the way of your beautiful setup. You can also use the Spongedry as a place to allow your sponge to dry after washing it, instead of sitting on a damp towel or on the nearest flat surface so it doesn’t roll away. It is not flimsy at all, but it is not super heavy to the point where it would be inconvenient to move to another spot or travel with. Speaking of travel, this bad boy is foldable, so you can fold in its rings until it is flat and take it with you on your next vacation (so you don’t lose your precious beauty sponge in your hotel room). Just for its ingenuity alone, I totally think all of us need this product in our lives.
Foundation Blender, $6.99
Let me just cut to the chase with this one, because I know what you are all wondering: is this a beauty blender dupe? Well, not exactly… but they are reallllly close. The only thing I have to say is that I feel it does absorb more foundation than the beauty blender, but not to the point where it is a con, I am just comparing it to the beauty blender. They both expand well when wet, and have the same amount of maintenance, when it comes to cleaning them. They are also just as soft, and just as bouncy when applying your foundation. This is not one of those sponges that even after running them under water and towel drying them, they still manage to feel like something Patrick Star would like to live under. This sponge also does have one flat side, where the beauty blender does not, which does come in handy for blending out concealer. A beauty blender retails for $20, and this retails for $7 – for the $13 difference, this sponge is well worth its value.
I know this is a bit shorter of a post for me, but I just really enjoy these products and have nothing but love to give to them. If you’re interested in checking out these products (which I highly recommend!) you can do so here. If you want to try out both the Spongedry & the foundation blender, if you purchase just the Spongedry, you get a free foundation blender! Sounds like a great value, right? But wait, there’s more! Use code SPONGEDRY15 to get 15% on top of that. Yep, you read that right. You’re welcome. Please comment your thoughts below, and thank you for reading!
