B. Latex Free Blending Sponge Review

08:30


I recently got to the point of needing a new beautyblender, and as most of you know they're not the cheapest of sponges. I was in Superdrug a few days ago and noticed the B. brand had a special offer on their blending sponge. On offer for only £3.29 I thought I'd give it a try.

The sponge is definitely going for the beautyblender look, as it is a similar size and colour to the original beautyblender.

 L-R Wet Beautyblender, Dry B. Blending Sponge.

It  expands when wet, to around the same size the beautyblender expands to. Though it is definitely denser than what I'm used to, I'm hoping this will mean it has better longevity when washing. I have heard that some people have experienced it leaking pink dye when being washed, luckily I have yet to experience it.



I do my usual make up application routine of washing the sponge and squeezing the excess out before applying foundation. I do find the base of the sponge is actually a bit wider than the original beautyblender, which can be useful when blending foundation into my cheeks. It doesn't absorb much product and blends the foundation into my skin.

Overall it does a good job of blending my foundation, I would go so far as it to say it performs as well as the beautyblender its self! Its definitely a cheaper alternative for £4.99 (currently on offer for £3.29). Plus you can buy multi-packs of two or four which work out even cheaper.

  3. The sponge sounds good and it is affordable. Hopefully like you said you don't experience it leaking pink die, that would be too bad.
    Have a great week Shelleen. :)

  10. I recently started using one but I found it really hard to know what to do (as silly as that sounds!) I was a bit put off but going to give it another go today as everyone says how great the results are!

  11. I always used to apply makeup with a brush but since purchasing a makeup sponge I have been using it day in day out! It applies foundation perfectly :)

  12. I usually use the Sephora version of the Beauty Blender but it is unfortunately a little worse for wear now and I am in desperate need of a new one. I will check these out as they sound like a complete bargain and they seem to do the job just as well :) x
