JGOB Beauty Blender...My thoughts AND A CONTEST!!!!!

I’ve written about beauty blenders before as it is my preferred method for applying my foundation, but I had been using a cheap blender and I kind of assumed all beauty blenders were the same.  I had previously gotten like a 10 pack of blenders off of Amazon for super cheap and they seemed to work well enough, so I was happy.  Recently I was given the opportunity to try out the JGOB beauty blender and not only that, they were willing to let me give one away FREE to one of my readers so I said heck yes! Sign me up!
JGOB Beauty Blender

So when the JGOB blender arrived I decided to test it out.  It’s a completely different texture than the beauty blenders I was using.  It’s softer and spongier and feels completely different and since I was so used to my other blenders, I was kind of like Meh, it’s okay.  I’ve actually put off writing this post because I was a little underwhelmed with the product.

Fast forward to about a week ago and I was talking to a friend that’s a major makeup guru and we got to talking about beauty blenders. She happened to have hers with her and showed it to me and I noticed right away it was the same texture and the JGOB and I told her I wasn’t a fan.  It turns out I’ve been using this ALL wrong!  Now, I know you need to dampen the blender, but I was apparently not dampening it enough.  The other blenders I use don’t change size regardless of how little or how much water I use, but the JGOB one almost doubles in size when dampened properly. 

Once I actually used the JGOB blender properly I realized how amazing it is!  It really is a superior blender to the less expensive ones I own.  Right now this sponge is currently $11.97 on Amazon (You can see it here), which is almost half the price of the “original” beauty blender and my friend confirmed that the JGOB is very similar in quality and results to her “original” blender.   Oh, and the neatest part about this blender is the little carry case.  This is perfect for trips or when you have to take your makeup on the go.  I wouldn’t want to leave my beauty blender just hanging out in my makeup bag as I’m sure it would collect all kinds of fun stuff you don’t want putting on your face! This case keeps my blender clean and protected. Want to see how the JGOB blender in action? Check out my video:

So, on to the fun part.  One of my lucky readers will be the lucky recipient of their very own beauty blender.  Small disclaimer:  You will be given a code to redeem on Amazon and if you are not a member of Amazon Prime you will be responsible for shipping costs.

  1. Hi Jen! What a terrific post - I've never been motivated to even try a beauty blender before, you've piqued my interest! My favorite drugstore foundation right now is L'oreal True Match, it's the first foundation that I've ever found that gives a dark enough shade for my skin tone (I'm a tanning fanatic) without any orange under or over tones. Earlier this week I went in search of a foundation with better coverage and found Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse, love the coverage but the color is a wee bit weak so I've been doing a dual layer thing with the two products. I think I'm going to try the Beauty Blender, try mixing the two foundations and create my own perfect foundation! Thanks for the great info!
