Review: Eco Tools Perfecting Blending Duo

Hello beauties,

When Eco Tools launched their version of the Beauty Blender, Perfecting Blending Duo* I was so keen to try them! The reason why I was so excited to try them was because Eco Tools created EcoFoam Technology which means these sponges are made of 70% plant based materials. I hate the idea of throwing away a beauty sponge after 3 months, but now knowing these Eco Tools sponges are plant based and not harming the environment as much I don’t feel too bad throwing them away. Now the million dollar question, are these as good as the Beauty Blender?

Eco Tools

Overall Thoughts:

  • Retails for $19.99 AUD (much cheaper than the Beauty Blender)
  • Comes in a duo pack, one large and one smaller sponge
  • Can use wet or dry, but I prefer to use my sponges wet
  • When you wet the sponge it expands a lot, making the dark green sponge a lot larger than the original Beauty Blender
  • The texture is a lot more dense than the Beauty Blender making it more difficult to bounce the product onto the skin
  • Because it is more dense I find it takes longer to blend the foundation in and you can’t use the round end around small crevices
  • The flat surface actually comes in really handy and first perfectly under the eyes and nose area
  • Overall the finish is just as good as the Beauty Blender but it does take longer to create a perfect base

Below, I’ve applied my makeup using the Eco Tools beauty sponge.

Personally I still prefer the Beauty Blender but still very impressed with the Eco Tools sponges. I love that it is environmentally friendly which makes me want to use it so much more. Have you tried the Eco Tools sponges? What’s your thoughts?
