When you first open up the package,  the Konjac Bamboo Charcoal facial sponge almost feels like a hard rock. My first thought was like,  “I’m suppose to wash my delicate facial skin with this hard thing?  I think not!”

But what you’re suppose to do is let it spark up some water then it’s soft.

Konjac is a moisture rich plant fibre which is by nature alkaline, and thus balances the acidity of the skin’s impurities and oils. The unique net like structure of the sponge gently massages the skin, breaks down dirt, stimulates blood flow and new growth of skin cells. Leaving the skin extremely clean and refreshed!

pureSOL Konjac Sponge is unbelievably soft and excellent for all skin types! It is made of 100% pure vegetable fiber and processed without any coloring or additives, great for hypersensitive skin!

IMPROVES SKIN TEXTURE: pureSOL Konjac Facial Sponge gently exfoliates while deep cleansing and removing any toxins and impurities, leaving you with a radiant complexion. It is extremely soft and gentle for everyday skin care. Great for all skin types.

BRIGHTER LOOKING SKIN: The natural woven fibers of the sponge gently massage the skin and stimulate blood flow. It detoxifies and encourages skin renewal while balancing the skins pH, leaving your skin extremely clean and refreshed!

PREVENTS SPOTS, BLACKHEADS AND BREAKOUTS: The added BAMBOO CHARCOAL contains activated carbon and essential minerals to deeply cleanse and absorb excess sebum, toxins and other harmful chemicals from your skin. You will see your pores getting smaller, tightening and brightening your skin.

100% NATURAL AND ECO-FRIENDLY: Why compromise your health with products that contain harsh chemicals and additives on your skin? pureSOL Konjac Sponge is completely natural, eco-friendly and free of parabens, sulphates & chemicals. It is biodegrade, cruelty free and vegan. After use, you can compost the sponge and feel good about the environment! You can even add it to your flower pot!

Makeup Brushes RENEWED!

It’s that time to Refresh our Makeup Tools a.k.a Brushes

Before I get stated with today’s post on cleaning our makeup brushes, I just want to give you a run down on my MIA status as of late.

I know I haven’t posted in a week and I’ve just been super busy this past week.

I’ve been trying to keep up with my workout routine so I’ve been running to the beach after work then by the time I get home, take a shower to wash up all the nasty humidity induced sweat then by that time I lay on the couch and crash out before even noticing.
I have done one thing “non-surgical” thing on Monday so I can’t wait to write that up when the results fully kick in. It’s something that I’ve never thought about really taking the plunge to do, but as of now, I’m glad I took the plunge to do.  So don’t forget the keep checking back to see the exciting news!

Now back to the reason we’re here today.  I try to at least clean out all my most used makeup brushes every 2 weeks.

I most use, Sigma, MAC, and Real Techniques makeup brushes for my face, eyes, and lips.

Can ya tell that they’re past due to get their cleaning?

cleaning makeup brushes

All I used to clean these brushes are:

  • small kitchen towel
  • Dawn dish soap
  • Vinegar
  • 2 bowls
  • warm water

I get the water running to get warm then I put the warm in one of the bowls.  I put a mixture of a little bit of warm water, vinegar, and Dawn dish soap into the other bowl.
Lay my towel out on the counter so I can put the completed brushes on there to dry out.

What I do with the bowl with the cleaning mixture, I get 2-3 brushes together and swirl it around in the bowl with the mixture then I transport those brushes in the bowl with just the warm water in it and let them sit in there while I continue with the other brushes.

Then after I’m done with swirling all the dirty makeup brushes in the cleaning mixture, I get into the bowl that has the cleaned brushes setting in the warm water then I work the mixture on the brushes by swirling them on my palm to get the stubborn leftover makeup off them then do a final rinse from a running facet then lay them down on the kitchen towel for them the dry.

Short and sweet huh??

You don’t always have to go out and buy some fancy makeup brush cleaner. The stuff that you already have at home does just as a better job.

The finished products are just now waiting to completely dry that way I can go ahead and put them back into my makeup brush containers and I don’t have the worry about getting leftover products on a nicely new refreshed face.

Cleaning makeup brushes

My favorite makeup brushes that I use are: Sigma, MAC (go figure right?), Real Techniques, and Eco Tools.
