The BEST BB Dupe!
I'm a pro MUA and have been searching for a good Beauty Blender replica since I go through so many of them. This is it! Once the sponge is wet, it feels and works almost exactly like the original BB and it's fabulous! I recently used it on a workshop I gave in which I did a makeup application demo and I honestly feel like it worked better than my original BB and one of the models fell in love with it too! I have a pic posted on my Instagram of me holding up the sponge during the workshop demo, if you want to see! (@julissabeauty)
Even with my Pro discount on the BB, this Jouvenet one is still less expensive and it gives the same result! For the record, I DID NOT receive this item for free or at a discount in exchange for a positive review, I paid full price like everyone else and I will probably start buying these instead of BBs going forward. BUY IT!!!

Works exactly like I was hoping it would.
I've had these makeup sponges a little over two weeks now and use it daily. I've been using the teal colored one with my liquid foundation and it works beautifully. I've had sponges before, but not this brand and I didn't want to spend the money for the original beauty blender. This one works perfect for my needs. I smear a little liquid foundation on my face then wet my sponge really good, then I squeeze all the excess water out and then squeeze one last time with a towel. It bounces perfectly across my face and leaves my make up looking flawless.
Th sponges are soft and pretty easy to squeeze when wet. They aren't so easy that it makes applying makeup hard to do. It's the right enough softness to get that perfect bounce to apply your makeup. They are a little tougher when dry than they are when wet.
For clean up I use Johnson's baby shampoo after each use and it still looks brand new. I used Johnson's because it's what I had on hand, but I'm sure any mild soap such as any baby shampoo should probably be fine.
I've not tried it with powder foundation as I love how my brush applies it, so I will save my other for when I'm ready to exchange the one I'm using for a new one.
I would recommend these to anyone looking for a beauty blender sponge without spending the higher price for the original beauty blender.

Great Sponges at a Great Price
I am as amateur as they come when it comes to makeup. I know next to nothing about it. I'm also too cheap to spend $20 for a makeup applicator that I'll have to replace every few months. That said, at my age, it's time to turn the makeup up a notch. As a performer, I need to be able to convince people that I'm at least a decade younger, so I started researching.
These sponges do exactly what Jouvenet says they will do. I used the large pink one "wet" (well squeezed and rolled between a towel) for my foundation and the purple one dry for my mineral powder. First time use, I followed the directions and my makeup went on very quickly and frankly looked flawless. I had an audition that day and no one believed my age. If a tomboy like me can use these effectively, anyone can!
The sponges are both soft when dry and fit into the little pouch to dry for the next application. I only put makeup on occasionally, so I expect these to last me a long time.

I bought these because I was looking for a less expensive alternative to the Beauty Blenders. I like these SOOOOO much better than the BB! They are velvety soft, blend like a dream, clean up very easily, and are a little "stiffer" than the BB when wet. They are just a little larger than the BB, which I also like. I have used and washed each of these at least a dozen times since I got them, and they still look brand new. I can see these lasting a lot longer than the BB.

I purchased the set about a few weeks now. I use the black sponge wet. I havent tried the other for any dry applications as yet. But i am very pleased with the quality and soft texture. The sponge takes in a considerable amount of water for size increase & i know i am using far less product on my face which is great becuz i use a very high end foundation. I have tried beauty blender before & i like this more as it comes with 2 sponges and easy to follow instructions. Having had a baby recently theres no time to contour etc. But it surely saves me time a lot in my makeup routine & money on product. Easy & fast to clean with baby shampoo. I would have given 5 stars but i did not get the drying baggie :-(

Buy it for the Purple Sponge
I have had these sponges since March so they have gotten used and washed several times. I also own a few of the name brand version and have compared them. I have to say the pink sponge from this set is okay. I have noticed that it is already splitting in placed and does not seem to hold its shape very well so I have not used it as much. I do prefer its texture over the $20 expensive sponge though. The purple sponge form this set is the real reason for my 5 star review. It is larger than the pink but makes make up application so easy and flawless. I use it for both foundation and concealer and am really happy with the results. I even went looking for just the purple one so that I can have a back up. If you are in the market for a beauty sponge at a reasonable price I would definitely recommend buying this set just to get that purple sponge.

Super soft sponge!
Love this! I have been looking for a beauty blender dupe for the longest and the pink one in this package is it!!! I have been thru many dupes where the texture is super hard, hard to blend, and doesn't expand. Not this pink sponge. At first, the texture of it may feel a little stiffer than the beauty blender and it is, but just a little. Wet this sponge and it gets large and soft when squeezed. The purple one is though is stiffer than the pink one in this set. My makeup looks great and I love that it's the perfect size. Very easy to clean and store too.

Nice sponges for the price
Nice sponges for the price. Friendly seller also. These dkdgreat at contouring I would recommend them! I would also recommend wetting and ringing out before using with foundation as they do eat quite a bit of product if you don't. For all around they are so versitile, easy to use and easy to clean!

LOVE LOVE LOVE
Absolutely LOVED this product!!!
These sponges not only apply concealers and foundation so well, but they work great for setting liquid makeups.
The first time I used them I thought it was odd to dampen the blender, but it honestly helps blend the product in so much better without using tons of it.
When I washed the blenders, I was skeptical that they wouldn't get fully clean, but turns out that with some baby soap and some water, they look like brand new!
I 100% recommend this product to anyone that is looking for a smooth, flawless application because these blenders provide! These are not only affordable but are awesome and totally worth every penny!!

The PERFECT Makeup Sponge
These are my all-time favorite makeup sponges! I purchased them before trying the original Beauty Blender, and I gotta say that I actually prefer these. The quality is fantastic, the price is even better, and to top it all off the company has always been very diligent about making sure their customers are 100% satisfied with their purchases (I've received a follow-up e-mail directly from them every time I buy something from their line) and I really respect/appreciate that. A+ from me, Jouvenet Beauty.
