Blendercleanser solid PRO soap replacement

As you know, I'm a huge fan of Beauty Blender. I tested replacements, e.g. Blend it (see what do I think about Blend it sponge), as well as the highly praised sponge from Wibo (Rossmann) and I humbly returned to Beauty Blender. My Beauty Blender sponge is enough for half a year (contrary to my fears, it doesn't lose its quality, and regularly cleaned and disinfected does not negatively affect my skin). Today I would like to tell you more about the Blendercleanser solid PRO soap - is it worth the price? Or maybe I found a cheaper and equally effective soap (Yes). That's all in today's article about washing Beauty Blender sponges.

For years, when I used this sponge to apply foundation, I tossed you ideas for washing it. I used for years Carex oils or soap, but it wasn't until I received the tiny, black Blendercleanser solid PRO soap that I felt a huge difference in washing my sponges. The Carex soap scrubs sponges very well, but after washing they are quite rough and quickly lose their color. After the solid PRO soap from Beauty Blender, the sponges are not only clean, but also very soft (just like the first time). At first, I was afraid that the black soap would dye my sponges, but fortunately nothing happens. Big Beauty Blender is pink, while the small is powder pink and he also has not changed his color.

The black carbon soap perfectly cleans sponges. I can safely say that it even rinses out foundation or concealer under the eyes (I also have a small Beauty Blender mini sponge, which I use with the Chanel concealer) at an express pace - just a few seconds and the sponge is clean. For a moment I even thought about buying this soap, but in my opinion its price is exaggerated. Beauty Blender Blendercleanser solid PRO soap costs 169 PLN. Hello! This is the soap ONLY ... it's not made of gold, so I really don't know where the cosmic price comes from. I thought that I would look for a cheaper substitute and I succeeded the first time (it can be said that it was a golden shot). Ania from the Classy Simple Life blog, who analyzed and compared the compositions of soaps, helped me a lot in searching for a replacement, for which I would like to thank you.

I found my favorite Beauty Blender sponge in the Tuli soap factory in Gdańsk. This soap is brilliant and just as well as express cleans sponges. In addition, the composition is very similar - in both soaps you will find oils, thanks to which dirt is washed away quickly, and in addition the sponge does not lose its softness. After washing Beauty Blenders there is the same softness effect as after washing them with soap dedicated to cleaning the sponges. And now the important issue - the price. This Tuli carbon soap is 2x bigger and costs PLN 14 plus shipping costs. Compared to solid pro soap, which costs PLN 169, this is a huge difference.

If you are thinking about buying a black soap dedicated to wash Beauty Blender - Blendercleanser solid PRO sponges, I definitely recommend you to buy Tuli carbon soap, which will perfectly clean not only your sponges, but also brushes (I washed with this soap Zoeva brushes and here also it worked perfectly). And for the remaining amount you can buy me a decaf coffee on plant milk as a thank you 😉

Do you need to replace the Beauty Blender every 3 months?


I have been using Beauty Blender regularly for several years. This little sponge has totally changed my life and my makeup. I ordered an egg for makeup at the same time as I bought the first packaging BB cream Dr G. One of YouTuberek recommended applying this cream with Beauty Blender. It was a great idea, the makeup egg works great. By applying BB Beauty Blender cream we get the perfect melting of the cream with the skin. This effect is not obtained when applying BB cream with your fingers or a brush. For me, Beauty Blender is a big hit and although I was tempted by Blend It, this sponge did not work for me and I am not going to experiment on this topic anymore.

What is Beauty Blender and how to use it?

Almost everyone knows the makeup sponge. Thanks to this gadget we get the effect of perfectly smooth skin, and the foundation or BB cream is not so visible on the skin (there is no mask effect). Before using the Beauty Blender, soak it in water for a few minutes (if you are doing it for the first time, you will certainly be impressed by how it increases its volume), squeeze out excess water. The sponge prepared in this way is ready for use.

At first, it seemed to me that Beauty Blender's color does not matter, but it turned out to be not true. If you are interested in this topic, and also wondering what color sponge is the best, check out this post.

How to wash Beauty Blender to keep it looking longer

I tested many ways to wash Beauty Blender and two methods work best - one option is to wash the sponge with Isana oil, which is available in Rossmann. In addition to the oil, I also wash the sponge with antibacterial soap in the bar. The second method is to wash the sponge with oil (e.g. Kneipp), and then with antibacterial soap in the bar. It all depends on the product used. I noticed that Dr G BB cream washes off worse than the natural BB cream I am currently using - So Bio (I showed it here).

If you notice that you have damaged your Beauty Blender, it is better to replace it, because the gaps are a breeding ground for bacteria.

Drying the Beauty Blender

It is very important to use Beauty Blender to dry it properly. It is best to dry it on a paper towel or Beauty Blender stand so that it has an air supply on each side. Thanks to this, you will not be afraid of mold and other harmful factors.

Do you need to replace the Beauty Blender every 3 months?

Answering the question from the title - you do not need to replace the Beauty Blender every 3 months. The sponge can withstand 6 months, but ATTENTION! Only with proper and regular washing and drying. In a word - if you take care of your sponges, they will serve you for a longer amount of time than recommended by the manufacturer.
