Molly Cosmetics Silicone Sponge vs Beautyblender

Here's my first impressions and demo of Original Silisponge by Molly Cosmetics, which is currently on sale for $9.90 USD
I tested it out with liquid foundation, cream and powder and compared it with beautyblender in my video: 
What is it? The inner part is made out of silicone and outer surface is made from thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), which is resistant to oil and grease. The material is what makes it special because it doesn't absorb makeup products and so, there isn't any waste. It's also very easy to clean and hygienic.
How to Use: It's recommended to be used with liquid and cream products. Apply small amount and spread it in circular motion and then tap repeatedly to blend. You need very little amount and it can take time getting used to that. Personally, I still struggle with that. I always end up using more product. 
How to clean: They recommend using soap and rinsing it with lukewarm water. I tried  that but just felt it was taking longer to clean, so then I used Garnier cleansing water (waterproof) and that cleaned it so well.
Shipping: Molly Cosmetics is a Hong Kong-based company, so it may take a long time for you to receive it. I pre-ordered mine December 19th but it was shipped out to me end of January and I received it in the first week of March.
