HOW TO CLEAN YOUR BEAUTY BLENDER


Since purchasing my very first Beauty Blender well over a year ago, it’s been my holy grail  for foundation and concealer application. The Original Beauty Blenders come in an array of colours, and also now sizes, with the release of the Beauty Blender minis in 2015. My favourite of them all is the Beauty Blender Pro, which I use as much as I can as I find it quicker to blend my foundation for a flawlessfinish. Now with a small collection of them, I find it so important to keep them clean as I want them to last, and I don’t want to use a sponge on my face that could cause breakouts. This tutorial today will be showing you the before and after cleansing of the Pink Beauty Blender, which is one many purchase first – as I did. My favourite cleaning solution for the blenders is, by far, the Beauty Blender Blendercleanser Solid, which you can purchase from Beauty Bay for £14, linked here.

Blendercleanser Solid is a travel friendly cleansing solution for your sponges, which is free of dyes and irritants making it quick and fun to use. The cleanser leaves your blender hygienic, fresh and cleansed for long-wearing, continuous usage.

STEP 1 – WET
Simply wet your sponge under running water until wet all the way through.
STEP 2 – LATHER
Work your sponge into the Blendercleanser Solid creating a foamy lather.
STEP 3 – MASSAGE
Be slow and gentle with this step, as you don’t want to break your sponge. Massage the cleanser into the sponge and you’ll see residue starting to form and come out of the sponge.
STEP 4 – RINSE
After massaging and the foam runs clear, run your sponge under running water until clean. If your blender is super clogged up then just repeat the steps until your sponge is clean of any dirt. Also rinse the Blendercleanser Solid to remove any dirt, and put it back into the pot.
STEP 5 – DRY
I leave my sponges to dry off on top of the case it comes in, alternatively lay on a flat dry surface.
It’s honestly so simpleand quick, and without this product I’d be lost! I usually clean my sponges after every 2-3 times of use, but you can clean as often as you wish.

  • I have the RT sponge and I find it soo hard to clean – might have to add this to my list of things to buy 😉

  • It's really worth it! Works incredibly well and my sponges would be awful without it! Xx

  • Yours came up so clean! I just use Dove soap and clean and rinse a few times but it's still a bit stained looking! Would be so interested to see if this works better for me but £14 is so much for soap when I could be buying lipstick!

  • Thanks for the tips!! I recently got a beauty blender dupe kind of sponge and I love using it, but man does it get filthy :/ . I usually use baby shampoo to watch makeup brushes and such since it's gentle and effective.

  • I used to think that until I bought it and I realised how much more use you'd get out of it!!

  • No problem Jasmine! 🙂 I also use Baby Shampoo on my brushes, it does wonders!! X

  • I haven't washed mine yet and was stressing as how to wash it, so thanks for the advice 🙂

  • I had tried both the solid and liquid beauty blender cleansers before, until a few of the Sephora employees told me to just buy a box of $3 Ivory soap, because it does the exact same thing, because it has the same ingredients. The solid cleanser has the same exact ingredients as basic soaps such as ivory and dove, the only different ingredient is probably the Aloe Leaf Juice Powder. Reasons #549543 why I love Sephora and their employees, they keep it real lol.

  • ROFLMAO!! Apparently I don't wear that much make up because I had no idea what that even was! I have beauty brushes that are in desperate need of getting cleaned. Adding that to my chore list 🙂

  • Oh my gosh the difference is crazy! I didn't even know what that was hahah! I have a feeling my few makeup brushes desperately need to be washed…

  • Haha it's a great product cleanser if you ever use sponges in the future!

  • I know it's so good! 🙂

  • I have yet to try a blender. It is so important to keep your beauty tools clean!

  • I tried the Beauty Blender this past fall and just couldn't get the hang of it. Instead, I went back to brushes (though they are due for a cleaning, themselves).
