There are two things in life we really, really can’t ever be bothered to do. One is changing our bed sheets (seriously, do people enjoy this?) and the other is washing our makeup brushes. There are countless cleansers on the market that claim to clean our brushes perfectly and end up running out within a few washes. How do you clean your brushes?
The thing is with makeup, the different ingredients react with different cleansers. Oil based foundations are going to be pretty tough to get out of makeup, especially sponges as they’re so porous. Now, sponges should never be used on different people as they cannot be sanitised, only cleaned. That’s why it’s so important you change them frequently and it also prevents from mould forming in the sponge.
BeautyBlender sponge was created to give everyone a flawless, airbrushed finish to every complexion. They have since expanded their range into many different products, colours and sizes. BeautyBlender is my favourite type of sponge, especially in the egg-shaped variety. I can’t explain how, but it really does do a better job than any other I’ve tried. Other brands are either too hard or hold too much water. Or simply just aren’t the right shape. There’s a reason why BeautyBlender is so popular, it works. It works well.
The solid cleanser is simple, you wet the brush or sponge, swirl it in the cleanser and clean your brush. As the cleanser is solid, I find I use a lot less a there’s no accidental spillage or overuse. It’s lasting a lot longer than any other of my brush cleansers that way too.
Now, I know if I start harping on about how good it is you’ll not believe me, so I thought I’d include visual evidence. It really does give them a great deep clean, gets rid of everything you need it to and the residue is easy to get out. It’s really irritating when you can’t get the soap out of your brushes. Due to the fact it gets all of the makeup out means not only less product needed, but it also really speeds up the time it takes to clean your brushes and sponges. It takes me roughly 30 minutes to wash my brushes now (I have about 100) rather than the hour or so it used to take me when I used the Stylpro or other methods. Put your baby shampoo back in the cupboard and change to this. I swear, you’ll never look back.
Oh and that reminds me. I should really put an order in for a new Beauty Blender…
