First Impressions-beauty sponges from Real Techniques & Eco-Tools

I received these products for review.

I am a HUGE fan of the ‘original’ Real Techniques sponge (the orange one).  I’ve preferred it over the Beauty Blender for years mainly because of the flat side option on the sponge.  Real Techniques and Eco-Tools have come out with some new sponges, so I thought I would introduce them.


oh farleyco, oh farleyco, how I do adore thy ecotools…..

*I received these products for review*

You can have all the high end products you want……and they can sit in their pretty little boxes in your cute little IKEA storage units and plastic drawers.  As you stare at them lovingly (maybe pet them every now and again, but okay let’s not get THAT weird), remember one thing:

They won’t look awesome on your face without the right tools to get them on your face.

EcoTools & Real Techniques have come out with some *new* brushes/sponges/blenders that you need to check out.


I’m in love with this little gem right here-its called the Eco Tools Skin Perfecting Brush…and how interesting that it is a SUPER DUPE-R for my Dior brush, but not anywhere near the price.  It’s ideal for applying BB creams and blends them right into the skin. This product features an angled edge to easily apply product to ‘hard to reach areas of the face’ like the corners of the eye and the nose.  It is made with cruelty free bristles, has a recycled aluminum ferrule, and a sleek bamboo base.


I also love the Pure Complexion Facial Sponge-this is a version of the konjac sponge and I have one of those and LOVED IT.  This sponge gets into your pores for a ‘better’ clean and is made of natural vegetable fibers. It softens when wet. I use it with a foaming cleanser.

These 2 tools have found their way into my regular rotation and I will happily use and repurchase them.  That’s the other BIG thing I love  about EcoTools, the price.  FYI, the Skin Perfection brush retails for $9.99 CAD and the Facial sponge is $11.99 CAD.  Not too shabby.
