        Great airbrushed look!

        I purchased a sponge head replacement to see if it would fit/work on my Clinique sonic facial brush handle, and for those of you who wondered the same, the answer is YES! Fits perfectly so if you already have the base, you can inter mix the brush/sponge heads!

        Small learning curve. First few uses may seem dry, so don't be afraid to load the sponge head with foundation, or it will "drag" instead of glide. I apply foundation to my face broadly with fingers, then load sponge head and glide gently around my face to smooth the finish. You can also just gently pat the sonic brush head to areas like the nose, brows or tighter areas, and then finish fine detail with q-tip or small sponge. A few quick taps to my under eye concealer blends fine lines away beautifully. Well worth my trouble as it is more accessible for every day use than airbrush. Would have rated it 5 stars but the sponge pad started to break away from its head after a couple of washes with cosmetic cleaner. Handle gently when cleaning.

        I received this item as an anniversary/Christmas gift from my husband. I had just spent several weeks in the hospital, I was feeling less than pretty and I decided that I wanted to try this system and see if it could raise my spirits since looking better makes you feel better. I started using the kit towards the end of January upon recommendation from the sales associate, my body and skin needed time to heal rather than a daily makeup routine. Once I began using this system I used the cleansing head daily until my skin was clear, and on Valentine's day I began using the foundation sponge head maybe once or twice a week until just last week when I was getting ready for school, I noticed the head had ripped in a circular pattern right next to the center of the sponge where it attaches to the unit. I thought surely since you recommend replacing the head every three months that it wouldn't be that expensive for me to buy another in comparison to the cost of the unit anyways, so no big deal. Boy, was I wrong. I was shocked to see that I could buy a whole new unit for the cost of two new sponge heads, which isn't horrific, but when you take into consideration that I used the sponge only a handful of times and if I actually used the sponge head daily, I would be buying a new sponge about every one to two weeks, since that is all I got out of it for time for actual usage. I love Clinique products, I always have. That is why I don't mind spending a little more on the quality of the items that I receive from Clinique, but I must admit that I am shocked at the quality of this item and now I am rethinking this investment except as a cleanser, for which it works amazingly! I have used your products since I was 14 and I will continue using your foundation and the old-school facial cleansing system like the toner, soap and dramatically different moisturizer rather than buy into the hype of an air-brush foundation applicator since the sponge head seems to have an issue with many, not only myself.

        Sponge Needs Improvement

        By 

        from West Palm Beach, FL, USA

        Comments about Clinique Sonic System Airbrushed Finish Liquid Foundation Sponge Head:

        When it works it does a great job. I use it everyday. However, the other reviews are right, the sponge does not last long. It really needs to be modified. I find it hard to pay $27 for something that MIGHT last a couple of weeks. Maybe until it is improved the replacement heads should be reduced in price. That would keep those of us that like it buying them. It's becoming harder to find them. I can't find them in any local stores.

        Don't have a choice but to get this sponge head

        By 

        from Virginia Beach, VA, USA

        Comments about Clinique Sonic System Airbrushed Finish Liquid Foundation Sponge Head:

        I purchased two of these with my applicator luckily. I love the system, but I do wash the sponge applicator occasionally and I guess in doing so it causes the glue to come off or something. The whole sponge just ripped off the base of one of them. I don't know how your supposed to keep it clean. This is definitely a design flaw that needs improvement.

        from Belle,WV

        Comments about Clinique Sonic System Airbrushed Finish Liquid Foundation Sponge Head:

        I love how this product works, but it rips so easily. The first one I bought ripped the first day. I thought I had did something wrong. I got a new one it lasted longer, but still the sponge has ripped off the head. If used gently you can use with the sponge ripped.

        I really want to love this, but....

        By 

        from Lacrosse, WI

        Comments about Clinique Sonic System Airbrushed Finish Liquid Foundation Sponge Head:

        While this does leave a beautiful finish when applying foundation, I had a couple of issues with this. First, the sponge portion started cracking within a week of use and started to leave little sponge bits everywhere. Second, if you use any other of the heads, I had issues taking this one off. I actually had to pry it off with tools every time I needed to switch them. I never had issues with any of the other heads.

        Comments about Clinique Sonic System Airbrushed Finish Liquid Foundation Sponge Head:

        Love love love this head I think it's great that the Sonic has so many different heads and added bonus of the make up application head. If you're not liking it it's possible you just need a little more practice, don't rub it in press it in just like you would with a sponge application :) PLease keep this product

        from South Carolina, USA

        Comments about Clinique Sonic System Airbrushed Finish Liquid Foundation Sponge Head:

        I have severe acne scarring on each side of my face and i have tried EVERY make-up applicator and technique there is. I have super oily skin so I love the stay matte foundation, I paired it with this and couldn't believe how my skin looked. It really does look air-brushed, yet natural and my scars aren't nearly as noticeable. I love how soft the sponge is, it feels durable like it will last for a while.
