Many thanks to reader Diana (@emendeebrown on Instagram) for the above pic. She spotted these sponges on clearance at her local Walgreens for $1(!) yesterday.

Over the past week, I have heard from some of you who have spotted these sponges for anywhere between $3.50 and $1 each at your Walgreens stores, so the clearance price definitely varies from store to store. I can't guarantee that you'll even find these on clearance at your location (Walgreens clearance deals in general can vary from store to store sometimes) but it's worth a look if you like these!
I also want to note that I've seen some comments on my Instagram about how the texture of the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge has changed recently. I have never personally used this sponge, so I wouldn't be able to detect a change myself, but if you have had a sponge for a long time now and you buy a new one and notice a difference, that could be why. (Thanks to everyone on Instagram who mentioned the change--I had no idea).
ALSO: A week ago, reader @qpon_mamalinda on Instagram posted THIS PIC of the Real Techniques Travel Essentials Kit and Stippling Brush, both on 50% off clearance at her Walgreens. So definitely look for that too!
TIP: If your store doesn't have clearance stickers on these items, it might be worth it to take them to the register and ask an employee if they can scan them to check the price (just in case they're on clearance in the system but they haven't had a chance to sticker them yet).
Thanks again, Diana, for the great pic and sighting!
