Review: Beauty Blender Cleanser "blendercleanser"

You may remember that a little while ago I purchased a little pink sponge called the Beauty Blender.  I raved on about it, how fantastic it was and how my foundation application completely changed - if you missed it or just want to re-live that you can read about it here.



The one problem that I had is no matter what I tried to clean it with I was left with foundation stains on it.  I do recall when I was purchasing the beauty blender I could've picked up a pack that had a cleanser with it but I thought to myself "bah I don't need that - I'll just use shampoo, works fine for my brushes".  Well I was wrong.

I contacted Lipstick Republic to see if they could find me the cleanser to buy individually and after a couple of weeks it was available for sale on their website.  As soon as I received it I went straight to my little pink sponge and got cleaning.  And when I say got cleaning I really just mean i poured some cleanser on, lathered it up, rinsed it out and Bam the dirt is gone!  Yes it really was that easy, there was no arm work involved in trying to coax that last little bit of foundation out - it just cleaned right out.

The bottle has a flip top lid but the plastic is not very easy to squeeze which is the only fault I've found with the product.  Instead I just unscrew the whole lid and pour a little out onto the sponge.  It pours really easily and you only need a small amount as it lathers up quite well.

Take a look at the photos below to see my dirty Beauty Blender first cleaned with shampoo and then secondly cleaned with the Beauty Blender Cleanser.  Some of you may not mind having stains on your Beauty Blender, it's not like it's not clean, but I can be a little OCD when it comes to things like this and I love seeing that it's completely clean and looking brand new again.

The photos speak for themselves really.  This is a fantastic cleanser that can not only be used on your Beauty Blender sponge but also on the rest of your brushes!  I picked up a 180ml bottle for $17.95 but there is also a smaller 90ml bottle for $9.95 and both can be purchased at www.lipstickrepublic.com.au

Note to self: Keep Beauty Blender sponge away from 3 month old kittens.  Turns out Lucy loves her some pink too :/

  1. That's fantastic! I need to clean my makeup sponges, they're not very pretty. In the past, I've soaked them in vinegar for a couple of hours, and then I ran them under hot water and it worked perfectly for me!

    1. Wow I never knew you could use vinegar - does the smell of vinegar disappear when you rinse them?
