Refresh Your Sponges and Bristles with These Makeup Brush Cleaners

It’s fairly safe to say that most of us don’t clean our makeup brushes and sponges as often as we’d like to admit. And while cleaning your brushes and Beautyblender isn’t the most thrilling activity, it is one worth doing if your makeup tools are starting to look a little worse for wear.

By giving your makeup tools a deep clean, you not only maximise the lifespan of your brushes and makeup sponges but also minimise the levels of product build-up and bacteria which are known to cause breakouts when left unchecked.

If you’re looking to keep your makeup tools in pristine condition, here are some of the best cleansers and brush cleaning tools that beauty junkies and makeup artists swear by.

BeautyBlender Liquid BlenderCleanser

Designed for maintaining the integrity of the Beautyblender sponge, this gentle liquid cleanser removes dirt and stubborn makeup residue with coconut and sustainable palm oils. All you have to do is add a few drops to your wet makeup sponge and brushes, work up a lather and rinse.
