What's All The Hype About?

For a person who has a ton of acne scars I can tell you first hand that I spend a lot of time trying to conceal them. When I heard about the new "Silicone Sponge" that hit the market I was very intrigued. One of the biggest claims is that it provides better coverage.

 I was very excited to try this product out because I had also heard that you use less foundation. I ordered my sponge on Amazon. It was inexpensive with good reviews. I also purchased one the giveaway that I am doing. ENTER HERE

I felt the best way to test the product out would be to film a video on my YouTube channel. I applied foundation to one side of my face using the silicone sponge and the Real Techniques sponge on the other. Which sponge do you think did a better job concealing my acne scars?

Another product that I wanted to make quick mention of was the new #VitaCWhip that I used in the video. I am a firm believer in having something like this as part of your skin care routine. I suffer from a lot of redness down both sides of my cheeks so I have a number of different products that I use to help with scarring. What is your favorite skincare product?


I am always taking recommendations for new skincare products to try or tools that might be worth testing. I appreciate your taking the time to stop by my blog and read about my experiences. I hope that you have a wonderful day.

  1. This sounds like a wonderful product! I have a few friends with acne scars who are self conscious, I will let them know.

  2. I've heard about this sponge. Thanks for posting your review.

  3. This looks interesting. I've never heard of it. And as a make up enthusiast (honestly, I just love to collect), I want to try this one!

  4. I've seen several videos and reviews about these silicone sponges, and still haven't made up my mind whether to try them or not yet - but I'm definitely curious. It seems like the reviews are really mixed on this, where one person thinks it's the next best thing, and another thinks it's awful.

  5. It almost reminds me of the blending sponge. What an interesting comparison of the two! Perhaps I will try this out!

  6. I don't have acne but my friend has this issue i already forward one of your post, will do the same for this one .thank you

  7. I hadn't heard of the silicon sponge before. I'm trying to decide if I want to jump in your giveaway and try my luck to try it out myself. I would think you can use it longer then a spin which would be nice, absorbing less product equals less waste.

  8. I'm really self-conscious about my acne, I've never heard of the silicon sponge before, so maybe I'll enter your giveaway :)

  9. I have also heard of this recently. I have been wanting to try this one out myself

  10. I'm the next one who's never heard of silicone sponge! It's an interesting review and I like your youtube film as well:)

  11. I have been wondering the same of these silicone sponges; still on the fence from all the pros and cons I have read about. I use powder and have been thinking about going to liquid foundation but, wanting to blend right. BTW ~ love the Essa Vitamin C Whip, it's so awesome!

  12. Oooh, that is interesting. This is the first time that I'm hearing about Silicone Sponges. I don't think we have it here already. I'd love to try it. I'm guessing that the Silicone Sponge is easier to clean.

  13. I loved your video! I also have/had terrible scarring on my face.

    After washing my face with Dr. Bronner's liquid castile soap, I use colloidal silver as a toner and finish with pharmaceutical DMSO mixed with jojoba oil and it has worked better than anything I've ever tried (I've tried $100 products and $10, none really worked)

    The only thing with DMSO is that you have to be careful what products you use since it will take it directly into your bloodstream (in other words, only use products that you would feel okay actually drinking) For example, you wouldn't want to wash your face with anything that has harsh chemicals in it before using DMSO, but if you do, cleanse your face with spring water before applying it to remove any residue. I know it sounds like a lot but it works. I'd definitely do a Google search of "DMSO for scarring" and "Colloidal Silver for scarring". They are pretty amazing products for other things as well.

    The brands I use are: Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol Colloidal Silver and
    Exclusive Wellness Club DMSO Odorless 99.995% Pharma Grade DMSO

    Hope this helps! Thanks for the great review of the sponge, I'll be entering your giveaway!
