Hey guys! Welcome back. Today I want to share with you all how I clean my beauty sponge. For those of you who use beauty blenders or sponges you know that they can be absolutely awful to clean. There are a lot of different things you can do to get the makeup out of them, but once you use it it seems like those stains are always there. I used to think there was absolutely no way to completely clean my beauty sponge. But then I learned this trick and it was completely life changing.
Most of you who have been following my blog for a while know that I use the L’Oreal Infallible Foundation Blender as my beauty sponge. It is the best one I have ever tried and will use it until I work up the nerve to try something new. You can find it almost anywhere L’Oreal products are sold. It runs around $7-$8 depending on where you buy it. At Walmart it’s closer to $8, on Ulta I think it’s closer to $7, but if you are purchasing online you have to deal with shipping and it’s a whole thing.
Definitely check it out if you are looking for a great quality beauty sponge from the drugstore. I promise you will not be sorry!
But anyway, on to cleaning it. Also, this is not a sponsored post. I just wanted to let you know what I use and why I love it so much in case you are looking into branching out for a new beauty sponge.
To clean it I first get it wet. Then I take a bar of soap (literally any bar of soap) and hold it under warm water. Then I take my beauty sponge and rub it along the bottom of the bar of soap (where the bar curves). I rub it along around ten times and then I rinse out the sponge. I repeat this process until all the stains and makeup is out. It literally takes less than five minutes and the sponge looks like brand new again. It’s pure genius.
