Sponge? Brush? Fingers? What do you use to apply your foundation? If your answer is a sponge I’ve been sent a great one that you need to check out yourself. Not all sponges are created equal. I’ve tried some really lousy ones that either ended up in the kids toybox or in the garbageman’s box. But PAMPER THERAPY FLAWLESS FINISH SPONGE isn’t going anywhere other than my vanity.
If often surprises me when I find people reluctant to try out sponge like this. They are not your mother’s sponge. This new generation of sponges are unique and they keep getting better. What I like most about Pamper is the unusual shape. The flat side of the elliptical sponge is what attracted me to this initially and now that I’m using it, that was a great first impression.
You know the drill with a sponge – wet it, squeeze out excess water leaving just a tad of moisture, then pump out your foundation and dab it on your skin. With the Pamper Therapy Flawless Finish Sponge it’s great to rock it back and forth to blend. I’d never done that before and I think it’s a great method for application.
Here’s how you can use this latex-free sponge to fully take advantage of its versatility:
ROUNDED SIDE: This is great for covering large area. It blends your foundation with an even finish.
FLAT SIDE: If you want fuller coverage this is the side to use. Put on one coat and rock the sponge. Then top with another coat using this side.
POINTED TIP: This is how you can use the Pamper for concealer since using the tip is best for smaller areas like eyes and nose.
The foundation I first used with the Flawless Finish Sponge by Pamper is Youngblood Liquid Mineral Foundation. I had received this a while ago but set it aside in error. This was the perfect opportunity to try out the foundation. This lovely foundation is available in 9 shades. While it’s not the biggest range I love that they classify the colors by depth and (w)(c). I was sent the lightest shade, Pebble, which is a cool shade even though it first felt a little yellow when swatching it.
Youngblood Liquid Mineral Foundation is called Deep Sea Hydrating Complex. It infuses the hydrating complex and reduced salt deep-sea water, which is rich in ocean minerals and nutrients, into the formula. It’s a very hydrating foundation which will be better for me in the cooler months. Using the dampened Pamper sponge gives me a sheer application for summer.
The interesting thing about this is that I notice a fragrance when it’s on my hand but when I apply it, it’s gone in a minute. Look at these ingredients and what they do for you!

Two great products to add to your fall shopping list. PAMPER THERAPY is available on Amazon for only $10 which is half the price of the other pink sponge while YOUNGBLOOD is found on their website for $49 and on LovelySkin.com for 25% off right now. This is my kind of back to school list. — Marcia
