Worms in the Beauty Blender!

Worms in the Beauty Blender
Beauty Blender - an irreplaceable helper in my makeup. Works great for application Asian BB creams. Some time ago I came across a movie about Beauty Blender. Worms appeared after cutting the sponge's owner. That is why today I would like to refute some myths about Blender Beauty. I will start with the most controversial.

Worms in the Beauty Blender

I have been using Beauty Blender sponges since 2014 and I cut each one before throwing it away. Why? Out of curiosity and as part of the test. The main thing is that I tested a different washing method on each of the sponges, which is why the post about washing Beauty Blender (click) is fully supported by my experience. None of the sponges have ever had worms, but one thing is certain.
Not only the irregular washing of the Beauty Blender, but also its improper drying could cause the veins to grow inside. Many Girls do not remember about thoroughly drying the sponge (it must be in a ventilated place), which, when inaccurate washing, can cause the development of bacteria and worms that love a humid environment.

Beauty Blender needs to be replaced every 3 months

This is another myth built by the sponge company. Why? Only and exclusively to buy new eggs more often. I use my Beauty Blenders for 6 months and none of them lose quality after 3 months.
You just have to remember about choosing the perfect washing method and regularly performing this activity, as well as about proper drying. Thanks to this, the sponge will calmly serve not 3, but 6 months.

The sponge should only be washed with products recommended by the manufacturer

Another myth that the manufacturer invented for greater profit. You can successfully use other products that cope with dirt as well. In addition, I recommend spraying the sponge with Octenisept disinfectant after each washing (I spray the brushes with the same product).

The sponge loses its color and properties

Another myth. It is natural that the sponge will wash out its color over time. However, this does not affect its quality in any way.

Let me know in the comments if you used sponge colors other than standard (pink) and whether they differ from each other. I heard divided opinions on this topic.

How and what to clean Beauty Blender - update and some ideas for cleaning the sponge

How and what to clean Beauty Blender
Cleaning the Beauty Blender is not the easiest one. However, if we choose the right products, it becomes faster and more pleasant.
In today's post I would like to introduce you to several ways to clean Beauty Blender, which I managed to test. And also some comments about some of them. I would also like to remind you that I do not use foundation, but the Asian BB cream Dr G, which, unfortunately, is harder to remove from the sponge.

Wheat and oat shampoo Sylveco

Cleaning the Beauty Blender with shampoo is a pretty good way. Provided, however, that we do not use Asian BB cream. In this case, the shampoo has completely failed. The sponge was only slightly clean.

Facella

I tried to clean Beauty Blender with Facelle liquid, but he was too delicate. He did not clean the sponge well (only from the top). There is still a lot of BB cream inside.

Protex soap

Cleans Beauty Blender very well, the foam penetrates deeply into the sponge. Unfortunately, this method has its drawbacks - I have the impression that the sponge deteriorates faster and loses color faster.

Bielenda Cotton or Avocado two-phase liquid

This method worked very well for me. Due to the fact that the liquid has a washing layer and an oily layer - it washes out all dirt from a sponge. The method is also very simple, because it is enough to pour a little shaken product into the hollow of the hand, and then soak it with a sponge. Then just wash with liquid soap without SLS.

Bielenda Argan Cleansing Face Oil

It washes everything well from inside and outside of an egg. The sponge does not get damaged, as in the case of Protex soap. Unfortunately, this method has one drawback - oil is not the cheapest.

Liquid soap with a little Alterra oil

For me this method works best. Into the hollow of my hand I pour a little liquid soap without SLS and a pump of Alterra oil (it can be any oil). The sponge is not damaged, so we can use it longer. For me, this method of washing the sponge works best.
