Do You Need A Beauty Blender Makeup Sponge?

Years back I remember seeing these cute pink sponges in Sephora aisles. So squishy, almost like a stress ball, like a toy perhaps. I later learned that it was the beauty blender makeup sponge. A new rage, all makeup gurus recommended. Somehow I did not purchase it for years, after all my finger and brushes do the job just fine.

Then I got curious and decided to purchase one. This was about two years back. And now I can share some thoughts on the beauty blender makeup sponge.

Beauty Skincare Product Re-buys

What Beauty, Skincare Products are your Re-buys?

In Switzerland, it is illegal to own just one guinea pig. They are naturally very social animals so the rule is to have them in pairs. That's a fantastic rule and makes me thankful that we have two guinea pigs. During the pandemic our pets helped calm us , they are such good listeners and such adorable lap animals. The kids love to read to them and just spend time with them. They love this certain brand of pet food and will not eat pellets from another brand. So we buy them the pellets they love. Just like us humans …
