Our brushes and sponges could only take so much abuse before they call it quits from all the bits of gunk and makeup we use them with. Good brush and sponge cleaners will help extend the life of your favorite applicators, giving you countless more opportunities to create stunning looks. Here are a few reasons you should get them: 1.) They save you money. Clean sponges and brushes will waste less product per use. Clean applicators will also allow you much better control of your makeup, further reducing wastage. 2.) They prevent breakouts. Dirty brushes and makeup kits can harbor all sorts of nasty bacteria that you don’t really want near you. It’s a no-brainer--- cleaner brushes and sponges mean fewer nasty critters on your skin. 3.) They protect your investments. If you’re like some of us, you love the precision and the world of possibilities good brushes and sponges bring to your makeup game. Good brushes don’t come cheap either, so it makes sense to spend a little to keep your applicators in good working order for longer.
