Why the Beauty Blender is our Beauty BFF & the Best Way to Clean Them 

by Jess Hall 8 months ago

Beauty Blender Sponge

Behold: the humble egg-shaped sponge that resides in the makeup collections of just about every beauty enthusiast out there, the Beauty Blender. It always makes our complexion look 1000 times better, it’s fun to use, it’s a dream for blending – what more could a guy or gal ask for? Just in case you haven’t yet jumped on the Beauty Blender bandwagon, or just want to indulge in some major appreciation for yours, we’ve compiled our top reasons as to why they’re the bomb.com and letting you in on the best way to clean them…

It’s the perfect anti-aging tool

This one might confuse you, but hear us out. When we use brushes to apply and blend our concealer on our under-eye area, the brush often drags and pulls at our skin whilst we’re blending the product. Dragging, pulling + tugging = premature wrinkles. By using a Beauty Blender to blend your concealer by using patting and pressing motions, you’re eliminating the tugging, which means that no such wrinkling will happen as a result of you applying your concealer.

It can be used for just about all the makeup categories

If you thought this sponge was just for applying foundations and concealers, think again. Cream blush, bronzer, highlighter and primers all apply brilliantly with the Beauty Blender, and blend even more brilliantly. 

They’re perfect for touch-ups throughout the day – Re-applying makeup with the use of a brush can often result in cakiness as you’re laying product on top of product, but with a beauty blender, product is pushed in to the skin as opposed to laid on top of it.

It changed how we thought about beauty sponges

Before the Beauty Blender, the mentioning of a beauty sponge would bring about visions of those triangular white, dense sponges that soaked up 95% of your product, and would have to be thrown out after just one use. Now, thanks to the water-retaining abilities of the Beauty Blender, hardly any product is soaked up and wasted, and they’re not a daily disposable tool. They last for around three months before we need to throw them away for hygiene-related reasons, which is better for both our bank balance and the environment.

So, what’s the best way to clean our makeup BFF?

There are two that we think come up trumps for effectiveness and budget friendliness. The first is to place your sponge into a soapy bowl of water and to microwave it for 1 minute (yes, it’s really that simple), and the second is to use your face wash to clean your sponge with your hands in the sink. Your face wash is gentle and has the ability to remove all makeup, dirt and grime from your face, so it can do the same for your Beauty Blender!

How long have you been on the Beauty Blender bandwagon?
