I don’t often wear foundation. I don’t have the mental energy for it nor the need to wear it daily.
However, there are times where I’d like to look a bit spiffier and smoother than normal. I dreaded having to deal with anything besides foundation and a bit of concealer.
This tool doesn’t save me time, but it saves me large amounts of mental energy. It also gives me a great finished look I don’t have to work that hard to accomplish. All you have to do is wet the beautyblender, wring out the excess moisture, dip it into your foundation/concealer/beauty product of choice and (essentially) mindlessly blot it against your face over and over. The resulting look I achieve using the beautyblender is very natural, and I don’t have to exhaust any extra mental energy or frustration getting it.
This product has a few downsides. One, it doesn’t save me much time. Between all of the blotting and then the cleaning of the sponge after each use, I don’t shave any time off of my beauty routine. Two, at $20 a pop and replacing mine every 3-4 months (I don’t use it every day), this is a pricey tool.
All things considered, if you do regularly use foundation/BB cream/CC cream/tinted moisturizer and aren’t happy with your finished look, I’d definitely recommend checking out the beautyblender!
