Beauty, DIY

the with a DIY beauty blender cleaner

I finally jumped on the beauty blender train a few months ago – about a year late. It was a total game changer. My makeup goes on smoother, blends better, and I even notice it stays on longer.

But using it daily . . . the thing get quite nasty. And it’s not cheap like some other sponges. There is a cleaner for it already, but I like to go the natural route . . . it’s usually better for your skin, natural (duh), and cheaper.


So I came up with my own diy beauty blender cleaner . . . it’s very similar to the diy brush cleaner I use as well. Here what you need  . . .

a dollup of coconut oil

a dollup of dish soap or baby shampoo

enough water to make it it sudsy

combine your coconut oil and baby shampoo together well. Then add some water to make it sudsy – that’s such a cool word. then dunk your sponge in the mixture and let it soak in for a minute or two.


then it’s just a matter of squishing and squeezing the gunk and makeup out. You might need to add some more soap if yours is as dirty as mine. The longest this will take you is about 5 minutes. Mine was filthy and I had a 1 year nephew at my feet and that’s how long it took me. Plus squishing and squeezing the gunk out is fun.


How do you clean your beauty blender – do you go au natural or buy it?

    I love my brush, it helps a lot. For me personally I usually wash it out after every use under running cool water and before every use. I know that doesnt get out allllll the grime bu it helps. I love this thing so much it is stupid.

    Thanks for the idea. I clean my sponge as often as I can, but only with water. I never used cleaning soaps or any liquids. I am gonna try this way too. Greetings
