By the time I’d pumped some foundation onto the back of my hand, the makeup sponge had started to thaw and wasn’t as rock hard. I got to work, quickly, while it was still a little icy. My initial thoughts? This feels incredible. Much like a jade roller or gua sha tool, the sponge was soothing and relaxing in a way I didn’t expect, and I was surprised by how immaculately it blended the foundation. As the sponge defrosted, the water melted into my foundation and made my skin gleam. I’ll take the extra hydration, too.
