beautyblender beautyblender® pro

What it is: An edgeless, non-disposable, high-definition cosmetic sponge applicator made especially for professionals. What it does: Beautyblender® Pro is the perfect application method for darker-toned products that would be difficult to rinse clean from a lighter colored applicator. Use with complexion products, long-wear makeup, and self-tanners for flawless results. What else you need to know: Beautyblender Pro features an open cell structure that fills with small amounts of water when wet. This allows the sponge to be “full” so that the makeup product sits on top of the sponge rather than being absorbed, allowing you to use less product every time. When wet, beautyblender doubles in size and becomes even softer, returning to its original size when it air dries. Handcrafted in the USA.

Absolutely!! Here's a good tip, when you finish applying your make-up blush, eyes etc.. Take the BB damp with whatever liquid you use and tap it all over your face to melt the make-up even more into your skin. This helps me when I have gone overboard on powder...Hehe LOL

200%! The beauty blender will give a more dewy finish, with no streaks of obvious lines from face to neck (provided you blend down your neck) the way your hands can. Also great for cream blush/bronzers.

Not only will you use up LESS foundation and even though your hands seem "handy". This product honestly turns your foundation into an air brushed flawless look!!!

Go to Saphora, have a free mini makeover, ask about the sponge, have her show you how to use it and you'll be hooked.

Easy and effortless to use product with absolute AMAZING results! Bought the sponge Pro & Now use 1/2 the foundation The sponge (I bought the pro) sells at a VERY reasonable price and now have a priceless look! n
I've had MANY complements ranging from how porcelain and incredible my face looks up to had I Dermabrasion? Awesome product, once demonstrated you'll be hooked!!!

Yes! I used my hands to apply my BB cream before purchasing this and after much debate, finally decided to buy one. It works like magic. It's really easy to blend and build and the foundation applies flawlessly. I'm still using the same BB cream and foundation but they feel like different products now that i'm using the beauty blender--much more coverage and feels so much better on my skin.

The shapes are slightly different. The pink one has more of a pointed end, and the black one has more of a rounded one. Honestly, I think maybe it's labeled as "pro" just for the color? Like they meant the black looked better in a professional setting than a pink one?

Apparently the only difference is that black is the universal beauty color of the world which is why the pro is black, also it does not show stains as much as the pink so it is more preferential to professionals because of that. Hence the "pro"

I also was repulsed by the $15 cleanser and refused to buy it. I use baby shampoo and warm/hot water to clean my beauty blender after each use. I've had my beauty blender for about 2 months now and use it every day and have had not problems with it. Also, I "nuke" it in the microwave for 15-30 seconds once a week to kill the bacteria.

You say you don't want to spend $15 on their cleanser, but I bet you didn't want to spend $20 on a sponge either. That's how I felt, but I love them both! After seeing all the fabulous reviews, I bought their bar cleanser. I have never had any makeup applicator cleanser clean better or quicker. That bar is unbelievable. It cleaned some of my brushes I had almost thrown away b/c i thought they were beyond help! And it gets my beauty blender back to the way it was when I bought it.

Question
Sponge cracking?
I purchased the double pack after reading many positive reviews including people saying they've used them for ages. I've had my sponges for two weeks, have only used one, and there's two cracks in the sponge!! I don't understand how, I followed the instructions for wetting, twisting, towel squeezing it and dab then blend when applying the foundation. I haven't attempted to clean it with anything, so it wouldn't be a harsh product eating away at it. I'm so confused and ready to return the set to the store. Any ideas??

Hi,
I've had mine for over a year now and the only issue I have is some ripping due to getting eyelash glue on it(oops!). I've never heard of twisting the sponge.. I feel like that might be your issue. Make sure you are always very gentle with it. I wet it and just squeeze it in my hand then wrap in a towel and squeeze. Don't rub it ever!!

I don't think you're supposed to twist it. I usually just squeeze mine with my hand to get the excess water out and that's sufficient. I would take it back to Sephora with a receipt (or call customer service) to get a new one.

all i can say is that the first two i had, i was too 'rough' with (because i was used to putting that much pressure into using my regular sponges) and those degraded over about two months... however, with my new sponges, i've taken a gentler hand with them and haven't seen any cracking in 6 months.. seems silly for a sponge but perhaps they need handled with special care or the break apart quickly

Black vs. White vs. Pink!
I own the pink BB and am looking to buy another due to a lot of dye seepage, tearing and staining. I am wondering if I should go for the black or white.
-Does the black dye seep out when cleaning?
-Does the white one stain badly?
-Which one is more durable?
-Easier to clean?
-Longevity?

I find that the BB is nicer to my sensitive skin since you apply it with a patting motion instead of a dragging bristles across your face. As long as you wash it regularly, it should help your skin out more than a regular brush.

As long as you keep your tools clean and in a clean place I don't think it makes a difference, but if you do not wash them regularly then yes they will cause breakouts I use a brush for my foundation and a blender to smooth over then apply concealer.

Hi AAngieAk, the care and frequency with which you use your Beauty Blender will determine how often you need to replace the item.
