Spongedry by Basic Beauty Tools Review

I literally have a collection of beauty sponges and I use all of them, but what were they all missing until now? A place to go after they've been used or cleaned. A home. I was sick of having to keep the packaging (which also takes up tons of space too) to try and keep them in shape or a place for them to dry. So when Basic Beauty Tools kindly sent me their Spongedry* to try out and review, I was so happy to finally have a place for some of my sponges.

The Spongedry is a collapsible, hygienic holder for your makeup sponge. It can be bought in either Black, Pink, Purple or White and will hold most sponges.The Spongedry comes with the FoundationBlender (which can be bought separately too) and also a cute little travel pouch, which makes it great for travelling. The holder has been designed so that it dries your makeup sponge quicker and also so that your sponge isn't gathering dust in your makeup drawer or getting damaged in your makeup bag. It stops any harmful bacteria getting to your sponge too.

The FoundationBlender which comes with the Spongedry can also be bought in either Black, Pink or Purple. (You also have the choice of what colour the sponge is when buying the Spongedry too). It's been made so that it will dry quicker than most makeup sponges on the market. I've also found that it keeps it shape better than other makeup sponges I own, which is great! It has a pointy end for makeup application around the nose and eyes and has a flat side for easy blending. It expands so much when it comes into contact with water. It's also latex free. It's definitely better than the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge which I've been repurchasing for years.

The price of the Spongedry is £14.99 and the FoundationBlender is £5.99. 

I have also kindly been given a promo code so that my readers can get 10% OFF.

The code is: KIRSTY10

Basic Beauty Tools also offer Worldwide Shipping too!

Overall I love that my makeup sponges finally have a little "home" and I definitely recommend picking one of these up if you're a avid makeup sponge user.

  1. I've never heard of the dry sponge before but it seems like such a good one!!

  2. That is brilliant!! I was actually thinking of getting something like this because it's annoying not having somewhere to put it after it's used or cleaned!! Glad to know about this. Thank you!!

  3. This is such a cool tool! I also struggled with this problem, in the end I found something that works for me but if I had known this excited I would have gotten one straight away :D


  4. Oh I've never heard of this before but I'm so desperately needing something to store my miracle completion sponge! Sounds so handy, also may need to try the sponge out if it's better than the RT one 💛 Lovely photography x


    1. It's definitely one of the best beauty related tools I own. And I think it is! I've actually thrown my RT sponges away because I use these more and they are just miles better imo x

  5. I have attempted to try a sponge once and I didn't like how it made my foundation cover my face, it seemed blotchy. So since then, I've been skeptical about buying sponges, maybe if I try I'll look for this product instead!

    1. The FoundationBlender blends out really nicely. Literally can do a full face of foundation in about 2 mins with it, which is pretty impressive! x

  6. i never thought I needed a place to keep my sponge... but I guess things just changed! Haha.
    Considering trying those sponges too they're so affordable!

  7. What a clever idea. I've personally ever found a sponge I ended up liking so I've never had a need for where to put one but I know a ton of women would love this!

  8. This looks so intriguing, definitely going to try it for myself too!
