How To Clean Beauty Blender Makeup Sponge

Hi everyone,

If there is one key to get a flawless and perfect complexion, then that’s probably the beauty blender makeup sponge. If there’s only one makeup tool you could have in your collection, I would strongly recommend the beauty blender makeup sponge because it can work with a variety of makeup products – foundation, concealer, powder, bronzer – to provide a very smooth, even, natural and radiant finish to the skin.

However, when using a beauty blender, it’s very important to keep it clean. It’s best to clean it after every use. Not only does this prevent germs from spreading across your face, it also helps the makeup go on much more smoothly.

In today’s post, I will share some tips and tricks on how to clean your beauty blender makeup sponge.

1. Always clean your makeup sponge right after you use it

There are a few reasons why the experts recommend cleaning your beauty blender sponge right after every use. For one, this helps you wash off the makeup products from the sponge with great ease. If you leave it lying around for too long, it can get your makeup to stain the sponge and it’ll be much harder to clean the beauty blender. Secondly, it prevents bacteria and mould from growing on the sponge. Thirdly, it is so much better to start with a nice and clean sponge every time you want to apply your makeup rather than first getting down to clean it.

2. You could use a mild shampoo, a dishwashing soap or a face wash to clean it


There are many products that you could use to clean your beauty blender sponge. You could use a mild shampoo, a dishwashing soap or even a face wash. All these products can help clean your makeup sponge effectively. You could also use a bar of soap for this purpose.
Recommendations: Clean and Clear Foaming Face Wash, Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo

3. You could also use the Beautyblender cleansers


Beautyblender has its own collection of cleansers, which work very well with all kinds of makeup sponges. You could try either the Beautyblender Liquid Blendercleanser or the Beautyblender Blendercleanser Solid. However, keep in mind that these are slightly expensive cleansers, so if you need to clean your makeup sponges on a daily basis, you might want to consider other affordable options, such as soap or shampoo.

4. Double cleanse your makeup sponge

Too many stubborn makeup stains that won’t leave your makeup sponge? The key is to double cleanse your makeup sponge, just as you would double cleanse your face to get the stubborn makeup off. Start with an oil-based cleanser to help loosen up the makeup stains. Cleanse again with a water-based or foaming cleanser to get rid of all the product on the sponge.

5. Soak the sponge in soapy water for a few hours

Another way to clean your makeup sponge effectively is to soak it in a soapy solution for a few hours. This will help clean the sponge from deep within and get rid of any stubborn makeup stains on it.

6. Disinfect the makeup sponge after every few uses

Apart from cleaning your sponge after every use, it is also a good idea to disinfect it from time to time. You could do that by either using an antibacterial soap to clean it or by soaking it in an antiseptic solution for a few minutes. Once you have done this, rinse it with clean water thoroughly so as to get rid of all the soap/solution from within it.

7. Store the beauty blender sponge correctly

Once your beauty blender sponge is clean, it is important to let it dry completely before you store it away in your makeup bag or in any other enclosed space. This will prevent any bacterial or fungal growth from occurring and it will keep your sponge in good shape for a long time.
