Recently I purchased a Beauty Sponge from Charlotte Russe, which is a lot like the Beauty Blender. I had heard so much about it and how it made your skin look more flawless, so I decided to try it. Since this is not a review I'll just say it works great but the only problem was cleaning it.
Makeup seems to love getting stuck in this applicator, the sponge absorbs it. Since makeup (such as foundations and concealers) is made with oil, water and brush-cleaners don't always work since they repel oil. So this is an easy, cheap, and effective way to clean your Beauty Sponge or Beauty Blender.
What you need:
1.) Olive Oil
2.) Dish Soap
3.) Dry Paper Towel or Wash Cloth
4.) Beauty Sponge or Beauty Blender
Take your dish soap and drip a tiny amount into your hand, a little goes a long way. Then use the same tactic with the Olive Oil and add it with the soap. Then simply rub it on the Beauty Sponge or Beauty Blender and you will see your recently use product squishing out of the sponge. Simply rub it until completely clean then rinse it of excess Olive Oil and Dish Soap. Then simply pat with Paper Towel or Dry Wash Cloth until dry.
And that's it! Simple, easy, cheap and will keep your Beauty Sponge or Beauty Blender in good shape so it can continually make your face flawless looking everyday. You can also use this method to deep clean your makeup brushes!
