The amount of liquid or cream products needed is about half the amount compared to directly using brush or sponge. Spreading product with it will take some getting used to, final blending can always be finished with oval brush or usual sponge (for example beautyblender), that means washing the oval brush or the sponge will be minimized and they will last a whole lot longer.
It is ideal for people who don't like messy fingers during makeup. AND I bet you can imagine cleaning THIS APPLICATOR will literally take no more effort than rubbing it with a little soap and rinsing with some luke warm water. If you are a professional makeup artist, can you imagine how exciting it is that you can use it on one client/model, clean it with a makeup remover and sanitizing spray, and then you can use it on another client/model immediately just like that? Throwing away disposable sponge can totally be minimized!!!!
HOW TO USE
Take the littlest amount of cream/liquid product and go in circular motions or back and forth to spread, until it stop spreading further.
Tap repeatedly to blend and settle, pay attention to edges (jawlines, hairlines, around the eyes. Hold the sides and fold to create a "point" for detail and point applications.
Repeat and build coverage as needed.
CARE To clean, use mild soap and rinse it with lukewarm water, pad dry and store. Keep away from sharp objects like your tweezers or brow scissors, and it will last for a very long time!

Was curious about the silicone makeup sponge. So glad I tried it. Takes a little getting used to but makeup goes on smooth and I use much less liquid makeup versus traditional makeup sponges. Also like that they are easy to care for and clean.
Purchased these silicone makeup sponges on a whim. Had never heard of such a tool. I spread my liquid makeup with my fingers, so thought I'd give them a try. And I love them. I squeeze a little liquid make up in the palm of my hand, then apply it to my face with the silicone sponge. I actually use less product using the sponge. And very little, if any, makeup stays on the sponge. I will use them several times before cleaning them with water and a little liquid dish soap. I was surprised at how smooth they glide over my skin and distribute the makeup. It's flawless. I would certainly recommend these sponges, and I will purchase again from Fitooz.
I was surprised how easy it was to wash my mask cream off of this sponge. I love how they feel and conform for full coverage.
