What's Inside Your Beauty Sponge?

Hey Everyone!
I was honestly debating whether or not I should do this blog post for quite some time. I decided to still write it because it could potentially help some beauty lovers out there! I cut open my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge after using it for 8-9 months to see exactly what was on the inside. 

I have not re-touched the bottom photo because I wanted to give you a closer look of how it actually looks like in natural lighting. You can see that even though I washed it many times, there is still some makeup that seeped into the middle and around the tip of the sponge. 

There is a very good reason why it is advised that you should replace your makeup sponge every 1-4 months depending on how you take care of it. I'll admit that I did not wash it after every use, but I did wash it quite frequently.

Here are some other tips on when you should replace your makeup sponge & how to store it:

1. It is deteriorating or has cracks in it and has started to crumble.

2. It has changed colour.

3. It isn't as soft as it used to be and it is hardening.

4. It has become smaller in size aka it has shrunk.

5. You were sick and had a bad cold or a virus.

6. You started to break out and have not switched out your beauty products or skin care products and can't pin-point what is making you break out. It could very well be your old makeup sponge.

7. Do not keep it in a ziplock bag or a makeup bag for longer than you have to because that is a breading ground for bacteria and mould. Keep the holder (if it is a beauty blender,) and store it in the open for it to breathe.

8. Make sure to squeeze out as much of the water as you can after washing or rinsing it. 

Until next time,
