I love face masks and although I’ve been doing mostly sheet masks lately I still enjoy mud masks (and other types). I usually apply them using a mask brush. However, I remember seeing Madeline (of Classically Contemporary) mention in her IG stories (I think it was there) that she uses a silicone sponge/pad to apply her face masks. That was a while ago, but I never forgot about it. Every time I went to Dollorama I always looked at their beauty isle to see if they had the silicone sponges (not every store seems to have them, or in stock), and I finally found one a few weeks ago! Did it work for applying my face masks? Let’s find out…
Ok so it’s not a sponge because it doesn’t absorb anything, but I prefer calling it a sponge over a pad. 😛
It comes in a little container that is very handy for storing it. That way it won’t get squished by your products.
It has a funny texture/feeling; it’s like it’s wrapped in a plastic cover and it gets all wrinkly when you squish it. It’s the first silicone sponge I have so I don’t know if they’re all made like this.
Here comes the moment of truth… how effective was it to apply my mud mask?
It worked like a charm! There’s very little waste since there are no bristles for the product to get stuck in between (like a brush). It helps apply the product very well all over the face. And cleaning it is a breeze, especially compared to a brush.
If you usually use your hands/fingers to apply your masks you know how messy that can get. With this sponge there’s no mess at all!
I’m sold! And at $2.00 (CAD) a pop you really can’t go wrong. They also come in an array of colours. The one I chose is clear with a very faint pink tint, and it has gold glitters in it.
How do you apply your face masks?
