As you may have previously read, we’re really into our Beauty Blender makeup sponge. But some of you may wonder, how do you clean the darn thing? Whenever I use my Beauty Blender in my favourite foundation, the bright pink sponge is tinged with my B60 YSL foundation shade. Rinsing the sponge off each time with mild soap does little to help. The skin coloured hue still remains and frankly, after a few uses, looks a bit gross! Turning to the Beauty Blender Solid Sponge Cleanser has been the best and only way to get all the makeup and the nasty tinge out. This not only makes the sponge clean and hygienic but ensues your sponge will last.
Using the Beauty Blender Solid Sponge Cleanser… Wet the solid cleanser and your Beauty Blender sponge under lukewarm water. Swirl and rub the sponge against the solid cleanser. You’ll start to see some of the colour seeping through from the sponge onto the cleanser. Rinse the sponge and squeeze out the water until all the makeup is out and the water rings out clear. You may see a swirl of colour left behind on the solid cleanser. Just run it under water to rinse it off, then dry it on the little perforated disc that comes with your solid cleanser.
Lazy girl’s guide to cleaning your makeup brushes… I recently used the solid cleanser to clean my synthetic makeup brush. It cleaned off all the makeup in a snap. No repetitive and rigorous shampooing of the bristles required to get the most stubborn makeup out. Simply wet the solid cleanser and makeup brush and swirl the bristles against the solid cleanser. Rinse the brush until the water rings clear and lay brushes flat to dry. Rinse off the solid cleanser and let it dry before putting it away. Easy peasy.
The Beauty Blender Solid Sponge Cleanser is available at Sephora for $20 CAD.
