Osmosis Beauty Sponge

There are a lot of ways to lighten your beauty routine this spring and summer. One of my favorite ways is to switch out my usual foundation for a lighter coverage base like a CC cream. To lighten my look even further and to provide a flawless finish, I use a damp beauty sponge for application. I've been using one of my favorite lightweight bases, the Osmosis Colour CC Cream, along with their new beauty sponge and I'm loving the light, fresh look I've achieved for the warmer months!

As a makeup brush lover myself, I have been pretty particular when it comes to trying new beauty sponges. I look for a soft texture but also a versatile shape that doesn't have me reaching for brushes to finish off my look. The Osmosis beauty sponge is the best of both with a soft texture for blending and multiple surfaces to cover large areas as well as hard to reach areas like around the nose.

The Osmosis beauty sponge is your typical egg shape with a flat side that goes down to a point for more precise application. It's that side that I use for around the nose and under my eyes. If you contour, the flat side is also great for targeted application of cream products and powder for baking. The larger, curved side is ideal for efficient blending on the cheeks and forehead. This sponge lends itself well to multiple formulas including liquid, cream and powder while still providing a natural finish on the skin.

The Osmosis beauty sponge can be used wet or dry. Using the sponge dry gives the skin a more matte finish with a bit more coverage. Using it wet gives a more natural finish with lighter coverage. Above you can see the size of the sponge once dampened. I was really impressed how comfortable this sponge was to use as well has how easily it cleaned up. Some materials aren't as easily washed but I had no problem with this sponge. I tend to wash my makeup applicators (brushes or sponges) even more in the warmer months because my skin gets more oily this time of year. I need something to withstand all that washing so my skin stays as clear as possible. If you're looking to lighten your look for spring and summer with a flawless finish, I definitely recommend this beauty sponge (and CC cream!).
