beautyblender beautyblender&reg pro

What it is: An edgeless, non-disposable, high-definition cosmetic sponge applicator made especially for professionals. What it does: Beautyblender&reg Pro is the perfect application method for darker-toned products that would be difficult to rinse clean from a lighter colored applicator. Use with complexion products, long-wear makeup, and self-tanners for flawless results. What else you need to know: Beautyblender Pro features an open cell structure that fills with small amounts of water when wet. This allows the sponge to be “full” so that the makeup product sits on top of the sponge rather than being absorbed, allowing you to use less product every time. When wet, beautyblender doubles in size and becomes even softer, returning to its original size when it air dries. Handcrafted in the USA.

Question
Secret to Cleaning?
Is there a secret to cleaning this sponge easily? I mean, I refuse to but a $15 cleanser just for the sponge. Is that the way to go?

I also was repulsed by the $15 cleanser and refused to buy it. I use baby shampoo and warm/hot water to clean my beauty blender after each use. I've had my beauty blender for about 2 months now and use it every day and have had not problems with it. Also, I "nuke" it in the microwave for 15-30 seconds once a week to kill the bacteria.

I had mine for about a month now and I just a bar of soap (a gentle one, not one that will rip it off) and clean it after every use.

You say you don't want to spend $15 on their cleanser, but I bet you didn't want to spend $20 on a sponge either. That's how I felt, but I love them both! After seeing all the fabulous reviews, I bought their bar cleanser. I have never had any makeup applicator cleanser clean better or quicker. That bar is unbelievable. It cleaned some of my brushes I had almost thrown away b/c i thought they were beyond help! And it gets my beauty blender back to the way it was when I bought it.

Daily, I just use cold/warm water and a bit of mild bar soap, squeezing out the makeup. I'm not sure if this is recommended, but it works for me. I'll use the cleaner periodically.

Anti bacterial hand soap. I had the same mentality about the blender cleanser. You need to rub it under water with the soap in a gentle massaging motion but it works just as well.

I use a plain bar of soap. Soak your beauty blender under warm to hot water and then lather it up with the bar of soap and continually squeeze the beauty blender, you will see all the makeup come out!! Keep squeezing under warm water and within two minutes you have a brand new beauty blender :)

Apparently the only difference is that black is the universal beauty color of the world which is why the pro is black, also it does not show stains as much as the pink so it is more preferential to professionals because of that. Hence the "pro"

It's just the color as far as I can tell and I have them both. The pink may be a trifle larger, but it may also just be larger because I've had it longer and it doesn't shrink all the way back anymore.

They're the same, just the colour is different. I find the black doesn't look as stained with foundation as the pink, but it's the same material. :)

In my opinion the pink one is much more durable than the black one. I used the pink one consistently for about 6 months and i had the black one for about a month and a half and its falling apart.

I have used the pink one for about 5 years. Awesome product. Great for all kinds of needs. Wet, dry, sheer, thicker. Amazing. I then tried the white one and thought it was a bit better, lighter, smoother finish. When the black one came out, I was sold. It has a better more defined finish , it is easier to clean, it is a superioir product. I have even tried before the knck offs beauty stores are selling around, waste of money. Stick with Beauty Blender. Buy the black one . I wish back in the day I had the opportunity to start with the black one. So much better.

Absolutely, the beauty blender gives a nice air brushed look, I was a die hard hand foundation applier until I started using the beauty blender. It gives a smoother look and really blends the make up into the skin with minimal effort.

Yes! I used my hands to apply my BB cream before purchasing this and after much debate, finally decided to buy one. It works like magic. It's really easy to blend and build and the foundation applies flawlessly. I'm still using the same BB cream and foundation but they feel like different products now that i'm using the beauty blender--much more coverage and feels so much better on my skin.

Question
How often should I clean/replace?
I use the sponge at least once/day if not twice (morning and evening application). I am currently rinsing with soap every few days, however I'm not sure if that is enough? Is it sanitary, does bacteria grow in the sponge? How often should I toss and get a new one?

I wash mine after each use with baby shampoo and warm/hot water. I started doing this because I didn't like the look of makeup left on the sponge. Additionally, I "nuke" my beauty blender for 15-30 seconds once a week to kill "burn off" the bacteria. I've had mine for about 2 months now and have not had any problems with it yet.

To my understanding, you should not be twisting it while cleaning. Look up some videos on YouTube so you can get a better understanding~

I bought the pot of Beauty Blender Cleaners, and what I personally do, is every time I finish my makeup, while my foundation is drying on my face, I swipe by BB through the cleanser, mush it around, and then run it under water while rubbing against my palm. Then it put it on its stand to dry while I finish my makeup. Takes 10 seconds and a very effective daily cleansing. Good luck! :)

Question
Sponge cracking?
I purchased the double pack after reading many positive reviews including people saying they've used them for ages. I've had my sponges for two weeks, have only used one, and there's two cracks in the sponge!! I don't understand how, I followed the instructions for wetting, twisting, towel squeezing it and dab then blend when applying the foundation. I haven't attempted to clean it with anything, so it wouldn't be a harsh product eating away at it. I'm so confused and ready to return the set to the store. Any ideas??

I would not twist the sponge, I just squeeze it with my hands, I typically don't even squeeze it out with a towel because I like when there's a little extra moisture. I think the twisting is what may have caused the tearing

Make sure to use the solid cleaning formula designed to go with it. Sephora sells it for $16. Sounds like it needs to be cleaned. I've had mine for three weeks and it looks/feels great.

Sounds like its the twisting it is still a sponge, so maybe switching to just squeezing in your hands with a paper towel.

I clean my beauty blender after every use with baby shampoo, and it works like a charm. It removes the make up stains and once a week I put it in the microwave for 15-30 seconds to "burn off" the bacteria. I'd say that these two things really keep my beauty blender clean and disinfected.

When I used this for the first time today, there were small sponge speckles all over my face. Is it because I didn't wash it thoroughly?
