This might be one of those “psh” i don’t need to read this, its so simple I would know how without you telling me. But I do like to share everything with you guys so hence this post. When I first started using BB cushion (which wasn’t that long ago…6 months ago I believe?), my first concern was how to clean the sponge. I didn’t think it would be that hard, so I just took some of my beauty blender liquid soap but that didn’t work for some reason. All the foundation was still stuck in the puff. I tried my regular dish soap method but that didn’t work either! The only thing that worked for me was actually my beauty blender “blender cleanser solid” was the best method! I don’t know why, it just worked nicely and it left my sponges squeaky clean. Again, I’m not saying this is the only product that can clean it well, I have seen others use generic bar soaps from the drugstore and it worked fine, but I personally don’t use bar soaps on a daily and didn’t have one laying around so I don’t know how it works, it was just what I used myself.
Let’s get started~~
3) Rub the soap into the sponge with your fingers
When doing this, try your best not to dig your finger nails into the sponge. This will cause small tears which overtime will make your sponge break and we don’t want that now do we?
5) Ring the sponge while squeezing out the soap.
7) Tadaaaa~ all the make up is all gone! Take a towel or paper towel and pat the puff to get excess water.
I dry my sponge just leaving it on the counter for a day and boom. Ready to use again!
*Bonus point if you can see the blob of make up still on the bottom of the sponge. Don’t worry, I cleaned it after I took the picture HAHA. It’s all good in the hood…*
Ever since I used my first BB cushion, which was the IOPE one, I fell in love. I never had any luck with the drugstore foundations we have here, it always was either not the right undertone or the finish was too matte for my dry skin. BB cushions just worked for my preferences, weightless on my skin, colour matches my skin and it is hydrating enough so that my dry skin doesn’t look dry. Happy! I’ve actually started to use the cushion puffs as a tool just on it’s own since it makes the base make up application super fast, 5 mins fast! iIt kind of replaced my Beauty blender for the simple fact that it is cheaper and I don’t have to walk all the way to my bathroom and run the sponge under water to get the sponge to expand. I now just spray a bit of water on my puff and it is good to go. I’d say give these puffs a try since they are only $1 each, so even if one does get too dirty or just breaks, it wouldn’t even matter since it is so cheap compared to $26 for a beauty blender.
