This teardrop-shaped sponge promises to absorb and remove excess oil without disturbing makeup. It's an alternative to the blotting papers we all carry around in our purses, and since it's washable, it's definitely easier to use than those pesky papers you need to dispose of afterward. But I'm sure the question on your mind is, does it WORK?
Well, I'm here to tell you that the answer to that question is a resounding YES. I waited until I was pretty darn shiny to test this little bright pink baby out. It's been relatively warm in LA this week, so a few minutes sitting in my apartment without air conditioning definitely brought out the sweat and shine on my face! Some precise blots with this cushioned sponge and my skin was back in business -- dry, fresh and still somehow dewy without looking like I'd been doused in water.
The Blotterazzi typically comes in a package of two sponges that are contained in a chic silver compact. For my PLAY! box, I only received one, but now I definitely want to purchase more!
Best of all, it didn't even feel soggy after use -- the oil was absorbed effortlessly with the sponge still feeling good as new. And if that's not a miracle, I really don't know what is!
The beautyblender Blotterazzi retails for $20 at sephora.com.
