CLAIM TO FAME: A makeup blending sponge that smoothly applies product with a smooth, skin-like finish
FAST FACTS: Designed with the ideal density to minimize product absorption and wastage; super soft three-way tool perfectly cradles facial contours; ensures streak-free blending with an airbrushed, flawless finish; can be used wet or dry to achieve desired coverage; also erases makeup mistakes—simply drag the dry sponge over affected area to lift off excess pigments
PERFECT FOR: Foundation, cream blush, powder, and even primer
WHAT YOU GET: (1) Air Touch Sponge
STEP 1: Drench in water until sponge becomes bigger and softer. Squeeze out excess liquid using a towel if available.
STEP 2: Dispense your favorite face base onto sponge. Apply makeup onto skin using a tapping motion, starting from the center of the face and moving outwards.
STEP 3: This flexible non-latex sponge can also be used dry when applying your favorite powder for controlled coverage with an even finish.
STEP 4: Use the large rounded side to get ultra-smooth even coverage in a flash. The other end features a big and small cove, designed to perfectly hug the curves of the face. The bigger cove cradles the sensitive under eye area for flawless but lightweight application. Use the smaller cove to blend product on hard-to-reach areas, like sides of the nose and eyelids.
STEP 5: Cleanse after each use to maintain the integrity and prolong the life of the sponge. Rest on top of cylinder case. It returns to original size when it dries.

The beauty blender is obviously on the higher end spectrum of things so I'm always looking for more affordable options. I love Happy Skin as a brand so I was extremely willing to try this product out. At first, I thought it was doing well because it expanded as needed and it doesn't absorb so much water that you end up with watery foundation but it feels heavy on the face. It feels uncomfortable to pounce on your face because it's not soft enough or bouncy enough. I suggest that you invest in your tools and just purchase a different sponge.6 months ago
When the Beauty Blender craze came into the Philippines I really wanted to get one but the price seems to be out of my budget so I looked for an alternative sponge that could give me the same airbrush finish. I found this Happy Skin Sponge which retails at P499 and I was so satisfied on the smooth finish it gives my skin after applying foundation. I would usually use my Maybelline Matte Foundation when using this and it gives my skin a good finish. I also like the curve side which helps me blend the product on my under-eyes, side of the nose and chin easily. What I only don't like about this product is that it is hard to clean which I think would also apply with other sponges. It also absorbs too much product so I suggest you apply your foundation on the face first or at the back of your hand and not on the sponge directly. Overall, this is a good sponge and I recommend this to beginners who are looking for a high quality affordable find!11 months ago
I bought mine when these were first released, in light blue. I notice it has a tendency to absorb a lot of product, so instead of using it as an applicator, I use it to blend products in instead (mostly concealer, etc), and for that it works very well! Just remember to use a light hand and to tap, not rub. I also use it to clean off mistakes. It's conveniently shaped to fit the contours of your face, which works very well with applying and blending undereye concealer or cream contour. It's also nicely soft and fits easily in your palm. Bit tricky to clean though -- be sure to be thorough!11 months ago
I don't like this sponge at all. It soaks up so much product, wet or dry, and I feel like I'm wasting so much. I only bought this because my Real Techniques sponge was lost and I decided to try out a new sponge. I use this with my Milani Conceal + Perfect foundation, which is full coverage, and it sheers it down to medium when I use a very light hand, and light when I use it how I normally use a blender. I've been using this to apply cream highlighters so as not to waste my money. For that product, it actually works okay.about 1 year ago
I use this sponge together with my Pixi by Petra H20 skintint for my everyday school look. It's very soft and it's also not that hard to clean after using! I've tried several sponges and egg shaped beauty blenders but the Happy Skin Air Touch Sponge is just what I wanted.about 1 year ago
I love the colors! The shape of the sponge shows that the team gave much thought and consideration to make up artists and beauty enthusiasts. What I like about this is that it doesn't get too soft when wet, but at the same time, it's not too hard. I also love how it comes with the packaging that is re-usable. I put my sponge on top of it when I want it to dry. Definitely worth trying!about 1 year ago
