PRODUCT REVIEW: NIPPON ESTHETIC'S PRO BLEND SPONGE KIT
One of my closest friends at work gifted me this Nippon Esthetics Pro Blend Sponge Kit. (Thank you so much Ampie! I miss you!) Using blending sponge is needed if we wanted to achieve a well-blended foundation but sometimes I also use a sponge to remove oil from my face instead of blotting paper. Today, I will be sharing with you my thoughts about this Nippon Esthetic's Pro-Blend Sponge and Dual Purpose Cleaner.
This kit is perfect for starters and those who are in adventure if they will like it because you will get a two full size Sponge and a 20ml Cleaner. Its placed inside a plastic pouch making it easier to bring when travelling.
The famous brand for sponge is Beauty Blender but for today I want to share my review for Nippon's version of Sponge.
Weight: Dual Purpose Cleanser - 20ml
Product Description: (From Nippon Esthetic's Website) The Nippon Pro Blend Sponge is designed and shaped to evenly distribute and blend any liquid or cream makeup. Perfect for getting primers, foundations or concealers into tight spots and hard-to-reach areas. Use it dry for full coverage and damp for a sheer finish. Rinse and clean using Nippon Pro Dual-Purpose Cleaner. This kit comes with two teardrop-shaped Pro Blend Sponges and a Pro Dual-Purpose Cleaner 20 ml—all neatly packed in a nifty travel pouch.
Ingredients: Not listed
For the record, it has the same size and shape with Beauty Blender. The Nippon's sponge doubles in size when wet.
Even though it is more stiff than Beauty Blender, I still had no problem in using it when I blend my foundation. Its still effective. I can use it both as dry and wet. The bouncing of the sponge is the same with Beauty Blender and other nice sponges that I tried.
I can use it to remove excess oil in my face too.
The Dual Purpose Cleaner included keeps my sponge conditioned to make it soft and fresh.
This kit is affordable, you will be able to get two sponges and a travel-size cleaner!
After using it for almost everyday, one sponge lasted me for at least 6 months before it started cracking. Not bad for the price.
The sponge is more stiff compared to Beauty Blender even when wet.
The Dual-Cleanser cannot remove the liquid foundation on my sponge so I still use my DIY brush and sponge cleaner then I will just condition the sponge using the Dual-Cleanser.
