The Importance of a Clean Makeup Sponge

We recommend cleaning your blender after every use to keep both your face and blender in prime condition. All makeup tools are susceptible to harboring bacteria and oil. A dirty brush or blender can cause breakouts, irritation, illness, bad application, and damaged brushes.

For a fresh look and feel, use one of the beautyblender cleansers and know that you’re getting the best of the best.
