We all know I’m in love with the PRO makeup blender. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, read this article here. The PRO makeup blender is an egg-shaped sponge that perfectly blends your liquid foundation. It’s fabulous.
So the cleanser — is it worth the splurge? I’m super cheap and refuse to buy anything I can make myself or can find cheaper in a knock off brand. I started cleaning my blender with baby soap. It’s cheap, gentle, and a fairly common brush cleanser … according to Google anyway, ha! Here’s my story and why I recommend just splurging on the right stuff.
- Most makeup sponges are disposable and never need to be cleaned. The issue with our blenders is that they’re reusable, so we often forget they need a good cleaning. It is SO important to clean your blenders and brushes on a weekly basis, because they can gather dirt, bacteria, and facial oils in addition to your makeup. Spreading this on your skin is never pretty.
Not only will the blender cleanser help you avoid breakouts, but it’s also going to extend the life of your blender. Make the investment and buy the right product; it’s going to ultimately save you a ton of grief.
