I love the pro more than the OG beautyblender. It soaks up a little less product, blends product out just as beautifully. It is a little more dense than the original, which I personally like. Initially I worried that I might have issues with it staining over time because of the black colour, but it still looks brand new. I have a recurring reminder on my phone for when I need to replace this guy, so we\’re definitely committed. Cannot do my makeup without this.
