I’ve been meaning to write this review for a while but the longer I’ve left it the more I have to say about this product. I hadn’t really planned on buying this but I saw it in store and figured it was the perfect time to pick it up as my sponges were in an awful state. As you can see below.
It had been a while since they’d had a clean and as you can see they were seriously filthy. The blender cleanser is like a round solid piece of soap. I found it lathers up the right amount as it doesn’t foam too much. Surprisingly I really enjoyed using this as I like a hard surface to rub the sponge all over to make sure the product is evenly distributed and so I haven’t missed a certain area. I definitely think this made cleaning my sponges sooo much easier.
So after I’d given all of them a good scrub, being careful not to rip the sponge! They’d dried a little bit and some of them still had pesky foundation spots still. I’m not sure if anyone else has this problem? But it’s really annoying and I’m thinking maybe I might need to get a stronger soap or maybe…wash my sponges more regularly before they stain.
One thing I did notice is whilst washing my pink beauty blender, was that the pink dye was coming out. I mean every time I’m washing it. Which is quite worrying actually as I’m putting that onto my skin… So I might have look into that one.
After using this for the first few times on my sponges, I thought it went pretty well and I loved how clean and bouncy they were after! I then decided to give it a try on my brushes and using my new sigma mat (you can check out the mat review here) it did make it a slight bit easier using on my brushes. I thought everything went pretty well but once my brushes dried. The real techniques big contour brush felt very dry and bristly and its definitely not as soft. I’m hoping that I haven’t completely ruined my brush. So I wouldn’t recommend using soap on brushes, I would opt for something a little bit gentler next time. I’ve heard that using baby shampoo is quite good. So I’ll let you know how that pans out. I think I prefer a fluid for brushes as I feel it would be able to get right into the brush rather than just cleaning the tip.
I did enjoy using the blendercleanser for my sponges. It does a great job and I’m going to use it up until it runs out. However I might give using a different soap a try as its quite an expensive product, for such a small bar or soap but I really like the idea of it.
Have you tried the BlenderCleanser? What did you think of it?
Thanks for reading!
