Black spots on my beauty blender?
I've only had my beauty blender for about a week, but the last time I used it was two days ago (8/24/13). I was in a hurry and just put it back in the container it came with. I forgot about it until today (8/26/13), and I noticed that there are little black dots in the middle section of the sponge. I'm assuming this is mold/mildew, should I throw it away? I've tried washing it with the recommended cleanser, but the black dots are still there.

Sounds like mold to me. I'd get rid of it & purchase a new one.

Wash it in soap to get rid of mildew, and never leave it an place with stagnant air again or it won't dry.
I would recommend throwing it away... This happened to me once before, too. I was traveling and left the Beauty Blender in its container for a couple of days. I tried washing it with Dawn antibacterial dish soap under very hot water several times and the spots would not come off. A friend recommended washing it in bleach, but honestly if you can see mold on something still, that can be hazardous to your health.

Yes, it is more than likely mildew/bacteria. I would throw it out. I never store my beauty blender in the container. I turn the sponge pointy side down and set on top of the container so that it is always open and can dry.

Take it back to sephora they might give u a new one if the old one is unusable
to me it sounds like mold/mildew. I would personally throw it away, I think it you let it air dry uncovered it will help solve the problem. Also wash it with an antibacterial soap after every single use
Throw it away!!
