How to Clean Your Beauty Sponge

I've been using the Miracle Complexion Sponge ($5.99) by Real Techniques to apply my foundation for several years now. I love everything about it but I haven't had the most successful experiences trying to clean it. I tried a couple of different products including the Real Techniques Cleansing Gel ($8.99), which works GREAT on make-up brushes, however I didn't feel like it gave my sponge a deep cleaning and I didn't like the idea of the job being only half done.

I discovered the Detergent Cleaning for Make-up Puff and Sponge ($5.00) by Daiso from a couple of Beauty Guru's on Instagram and decided to give it a shot. I've used it twice now and I have been completely amazed at the results! I can't explain to you just how much of my foundation came oozing out after running the sponge in warm water, applying the detergent and squeezing multiple times over. This stuff is so powerful it made my sponge look almost new without the stains of the foundation. The last photo pictured above speaks for itself! And you know what? Using it again felt like I had just taken it out of the package. This affordable product is going to eliminate frequent purchases of your beauty sponge!

It's very important to clean the beauty tools we use. Make-up and oils from our face continue to accumulate with each use and can be the cause of breakouts. Plus, the tools feel so much better on your face when they're clean!

Tell me, what's your favorite beauty sponge to use and how do you clean it? Have you heard of the detergent from Daiso? Let me know in a comment below!
