Drop everything you know about beauty sponges and let me paint you a picture. Imagine a sponge out there that is unlike the rest. A microfiber velvet sponge that is covered in microscopic microfiber hairs. A sponge that can be used wet or dry with cream and powder products. It truly does it all. This gift of a sponge exists and I am here to tell you why to stop buying a $30 beauty blender and to pick up this $6 sponge instead. Meet the Juno & Co Microfiber Velvet Sponge.

The 411: Do you remember the first time you used a beauty blender? Well I do. I wet the sponge and it doubled in size. It was SO bouncy and made my foundation look flawless. It was natural but still had good coverage. The one downfall was it seemed to soak up a TON of product. In time other companies came out with beauty sponges that were pretty much the same as the OG beauty blender(Real Techniques, Morphe, etc.). Then JUNO & Co. came out with the microfiber velvet sponge and the beauty community went wild. Youtubers and beauty gurus everywhere love this affordable sponge.
The texture of this sponge is unique. It is soft and velvet to the touch. That soft feeling is microscopic microfiber hairs. These tiny hairs make this sponge a brush sponge hybrid. Additionally the JUNO & Co sponge has dual-layer technology. Basically it is made up of a core material and the microfiber velvet. Thanks to a denser core this sponge absorbs virtually no product.
Why I’m Obsessed: It blends foundation beautifully. I dampen the sponge and use it to apply my favorite Bite Beauty Micellar Foundation. I use the sponge to stipple throughout my t-zone for more coverage and swipe around the perimeter of my face where less coverage is needed. The microfiber hairs seamlessly blend the foundation without soaking up any of the product. When using this sponge I notice I use about half the foundation I typically do with a beauty sponge.
Using this sponge dry with powder has also quickly become my preferred way to touch up my makeup. The sponge applies just enough powder to mattify without looking cakey or thick.
