As a member of the Influenster community, I often receive free products in exchange for my honest review on social media. These products come in what are called VoxBoxes. In all seriousness, this is the absolute best VoxBox I have ever received.
They sent me SIX beautyblenders, a full-size Cleanser, as well as a Cleansing Mitt and travel-size Cleanser:
The beautyblenders, alone, are worth about $20 apiece, so this is nearly $200 dollars in product!
I’ve used beautyblenders before. I’ve used dupes. I’ve used my fingers, Dollar Tree sponges, etc. Just about everything under the sun. I bought my first beautyblender a few years back, for $20. When that one was no longer usable, I couldn’t justify the price within my budget so I went for a Real Techniques pack of two (essentially dupes). The next beautyblender I ever owned was a Christmas gift, and when that one was finished I, once again, was not in a financial position to spend $20 on a sponge.
I’m a casual makeup wearer. In college, I wore a full face almost every day, but now I’m more of a wear-it-for-the-occasion kind of girl. I had such an occasion yesterday as it was my boyfriend’s birthday and we were staying on the Queen Mary (post coming soon). I used one of the blenders I’d been sent to blend my foundation, concealer, blush, and bronzer (I forgot my brushes).
It worked just as I remembered. While it absorbs some product, its texture and application really cannot be matched. It’s not too bouncy, like some dupes, and is soft to the touch.
The cleanser and cleansing mitt made it really easy to clean. This was my first time using either, as I usually just use soap and my hands to clean my sponges. I have to say, they worked very very well!
Overall, I would recommend all of these products to those who can afford them. They’re a great set, and I will be using them for a long time to come.
