How to clean makeup sponges and beauty blender? (VIDEO)

 Hello creatures of the earth!
I get that sometimes we don't take much time out of our busy schedules to clean our makeup tools. I mean unless you have serious OCD, maybe most girls won't really do it. Especially when it comes to the puffs and sponges that is packaged together with compact powders and foundations. Deny all you want, I know a lot of gross girlfriends that don't clean their makeup sponges regularly. Hahaha, not judging but I hope that you'll change your mind after reading this.

Why? First off, not cleaning your sponge and brushes is equivalent to not washing your face. Yeah, I'm really not kidding. After each use, your puff or brush traps all the oil, dirt, sebum and old makeup inside its little pores. And what do you do with it the next day? *ding ding ding* You use it again. That is when all the horrifying bits that was just mentioned is reapplied onto our faces. With that being said, those bacteria then causes your skin to breakout and here comes the amazing thing that everyone loathes, ACNE. So to sum everything up, not washing your makeup tools leads to acne!

To anyone who is feeling rather lazy right now to continue reading this post, you can watch the short video I made on my YouTube channel embedded up there!

As you all know, I am a cheapo and I really don't like spending too much on my stuffs. So, obviously whatever I am about to share isn't gonna be too expensive. After reading and watching more than enough reviews on this product, I finally decided to get one bottle myself. Before this, I always just used baby shampoo to clean my makeup tools. So, this was a new inexpensive alternative for me.

TAA-DAAA! Maybe some of you have already figured it was this because that's how much I love Daiso and Mr DIY. Haha! Anyway, this is the Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge and it is only RM5.30. Cheap enough?

And if you are feeling lazy, you could always do it in the showers, maybe during a hair mask session, idk. As I took the photos for this blog post, it was actually my first time using it too. I wasn't really on board with it being amazing in the first place. I didn't think it could do the job cos I don't really trust daiso makeup products haha. But just wow. After seeing the end results, I decided to make that short video.

I tried it on my gross BB cushion puff. I washed this once, but it was with my usual baby shampoo ways. This is how it looked before washing. I didn't really take any photos of the soap applying process cos I myself was experimenting and trying to figure out the most efficient cleansing method.

In this post, what I did was I dripped a few drops of the soap into a glass of warm water, stirred it up a little and then threw my puff in. I scrubbed and massaged it a little, then VOILA! But please...

Oh my god, please don't do whatever I am doing here. I thought a small glass like this could do the trick, but turns out it couldn't dissolve the amount of makeup that was infused in the puff. Anyway aside from that, can you see the amount of foundation oozing out of the puff??

You know what? Just watch the video, cos this post is really not helpful at all. Hahaha! I just had to do it because I figured I just could not let all these nice photos go to waste.

Before after comparison please. It looks as good as new. Not to mention, it was no hassle at all.

Even the white part looks whiter than it originally was. Hahaha, I'm so good at cheating myself.

Okay, so these are the puff and sponges I used in my video. My trusty beauty blender and two sponges from my CD compact foundation. The sponges look to normally coloured, but did you know they used to be white?! Cray cray! Hahaha. This cleansing process is so satisfying I suggest every girl to do it more frequently than on a mere regular basis! But of course over cleansing them may be a bad thing too, idk I'm no expert.

Aside from my sponges, I also used this detergent on my brushes. ALL MY BRUSHES. It worked great too. To me, cleaning brushes takes up lesser product than the sponges. You'll only need maybe around 5 drops to get the whole brush squeaky clean. Obviously because sponges absorb more product.

Sanitizing these sponges were such a delightful process. Ladies, please don't leave your makeup tools contaminated for more than a week. Be sure to disinfect and cleanse them every week! For foundation brushes, it's best to give more care and attention to them because liquid traps more bacteria than powder. You really don't want to have clogged pores and breakouts!

Plus, the process is hardly even tedious at all. You could just do it in the showers. I can assure you that after the first try and after seeing the result of your beautifully cleaned babies, you'd have the urge to make it dirty again just to clean it. That's me la at least haha.

You have no excuse! It's not even expensive! RM5.30 to safe your face from acne? Please.

Before I end this post, I also wanted to share another thing I got from Daiso the same day I got this detergent.

It's a face brush! I have been using this to wash my face ever since I got it. And oh lord what amazing things this mere brush has done to my face. I just pump my normal cleanser on the bristles and scrub my face normally, VOILA. My face feels so squeaky clean after. The bristles are also super soft.. emmm ahhh. Also only RM5.30 ah, don't say I didn't tell you. Nah, part of my skin care routine shared liao. hahaha.

I'm gonna link the video right here again before I leave.
I hope all you makeup applying people don't stay lazy anymore!

     I'm sorry LOL! Lack of pictures. 我的眼睛已经痛了几天. 整个眼睛红红肿肿. 痒到死! 再加上当我眨眼睛时会很痛!! Haihh. 我的朋友一直告诉我去看医生, 但我拒绝. 因为我真的很怕医生会说 'I think you should go to the hospital.' 这种感觉我已经体验过了. 的确很恐怖. 昨晚在补习时 眼睛真得太痛太痒了. 真的BEH TAHAN! 一边补习一边流眼泪. SeeTeng & Melissa 一直叫我去看医生. 我说OKOK. 但在我心中真的没有这个计划. 补完Physics过后就补Chemistry. 我的眼睛还在受苦. 我实在受不了了! 我觉得在我眼里好像有一粒沙. 补习过后我感到很高兴! :D 一上到车, 我就很自然的说, 'Mii, can bring me to the clinic or not?' LOL! OMG! 我真的没想到我会说这句话. 在clinic时 我感到很紧张. GRR. 突然听到那个lady叫我的名.Ahh. 我的心跳越来越快. 我走进去, 就看到那个医生对我yam xiu. 哈哈. Relieved :D Then i felt so stupid for being so nervous. Doctor said it can either be caused by bacteria or might be a friend that passed it to me. Now i have two packets of tablets to take, a bottle of 眼药水 and an eye cream. So i'm glad i went to see the doctor :P 突然想到Ahmong昨天跟我讲一句超笨的话. 想到她我都会笑! 哈哈哈! Ahmong你太可爱了.   昨天我带我的Pendrive去学校借他. Eunice : Wei! 你弄不见我的16GB Pendrive你就知道! Ahmong : Har? Eunice : 什么? Ahmong : 怎样弄不见哦?

Frizz-free hair with Moist Diane!

Hello beauties! I said I'll be back in May, didn't I? But I also said I'd be back after my finals, which turned out to be a lie because as I am writing this, I still have to sit for the last paper of my semester in the coming days.

4 things we did at Port Dickson!

Hello 2016 and hello earthlings!  Valentine's day just blew past and soon Chinese New Year will be coming to an end. Before you know it, the first 2 months of the year have disappeared! NOO! Time, can you please take a chill pill? I have so much to talk and rant about, I can't contain myself like wtf.  In the beginning of the year, I went to Port Dickson with #themonsters9x . Every time we go out for trips, we would take heap loads of photos. But these days, nobody dedicates a whole album on Facebook to your trip lo. So, all you are left with are photos and memories in your hard disk waiting for you to look back at it one day and go 'AWWWW'. So ah, where else am I allowed to spam photos without being judged other than my blog, right? 

Going to Church for the first time

Hello there, beautiful creatures of the earth! For most of you who did not know, I am not religious. To add on to that, I am also very shallow in knowledge when it comes to religions. I consider myself an atheist not because I do not want to believe in any gods, but because I can't seem to do so. That being said, if one day I do feel the presence of a higher being, I wouldn't deny it or reject the fact that there is an existence of it. But as of now, this is all I have. The title may seen a little misleading as this wasn't my actual FIRST time at church. But anyway, the last time I step foot into a church was 6 years ago. So, I guess we'll just leave it at that. In my entire life, I have been to 3 churches. And through every visit, all I felt was skeptical, a little uncomfortable and very curious. Mostly due to the fact that I only went because that Christian friend of mine asked me to. I have to admit, I wasn't very fond of the idea back then. The first church I

A trip to Taman Pertanian!

Finally, i got the pictures! Muahahah! So I'll start from Friday. FRIDAY . 18 MAC  Same old routine. Went to tuition at 6.30pm. But with a different bag. Two very important things happened that night. Both embarrassing and scary. Okay! Let's continue. I brought a big bag, all filled with my clothes. Cause i was gonna sleepover @ Teng's place. I thought bringing my pencil box to tuition will only make my bag heavier. So  I just put a pen into the pocket of my bag. Here comes the embarrassing part! I wanted to take my pen out. So i slipped my hand into my bag pocket without looking. I just kept digging and digging. Then  felt something long and hard. I thought it was my pen cause it sure felt like one. Once i took it out. IT WAS MY TOOTHBRUSH!! zomg wtf! Luckily no one saw what happened. So embarrassing wooi! Went to Teng's place after tuition. We walked out in the middle of the night to buy some bread, tuna, junk food etc. for our trip the next day. We

All you need to know about 8excite!

Hola to all ma money-saving homies out there! It's been a while since I last talked about my crazy aunty ways of living life. If you guys are here long enough, you'd know that all my stuffs are either given to me by relatives, friends or bought from fleas or are preloved. I do splurge once in a while, but only if I find that item very worth its value or that its a super cheap deal (meaning the original price is waaaaaaay higher, my forte is about at least 40-50% hahaha). You know why? Cos I am cultured to be an aunty since a very young age. I'm sure there are many of you out there as well. Let's call us, young aunties. It's 8excite!  Before I go on any further, you should totes download the app on your phone. The app is basically a platform that offers crazy deals on things such as food, beauty and wellness, leisure and travelling, shopping and more. So, this post goes out to all my young aunties out there! The app and website are also all categorized n

UTAR Study Tour Soka University, Tokyo

Hey! So, here's a post that's long overdue... After long contemplation, I have finally decided how I should blog about my half-month trip to Tokyo, Japan. But before I go on any further, I'd like you guys to make yourself comfortable and maybe go brew yourself a nice hot cup of Joe before starting on this. I'd like to point out that I am indeed very proud of myself for still insisting on writing this out even though I'm pretty sure I've forgotten most of the details. But, I'll do my best! Well guys, hold on to your hats. This is gonna be a lengthy post! We spent over RM700 per person just on transport alone! Anyway, so here's my proposition on blogging about my trip to Japan. In this post, I will be writing mainly about my experience during the study tour programme in Soka University. Because in anyway, this is the main reason why I get to see and experience Japan in a completely different perspective and also get to go to so many diff

Its all me!

Bonjour fatties! How was your weekend? Mine totally sucked. I just stayed at home and did nothing. Boo me. And tomorrow got school some more -.- Why is time passing so fast. Pssh. But but but! I really can't wait for April to come! You know why?! Muahahaha. Seriously, i don't know either. LOL! I just have the feeling. I feel like there's a big big event this coming April. Maybe its me and my baby boy's 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! Or maybe because it's my sister's birthday?! Or maybe ... SECRET :P Anyway, I've changed my blog header picture. Facebook dp and also my Twitter dp! :D  Stay tuned to my next post! I really feel like a boring girl. So pathetic.

On A Daily Basis.

Hello! It's been a while! I am a very busy girl, involuntarily of course. Apparently my schedule is always flushed with books, reports and tests. I have tests almost every weekend, consecutively until the end of my trimester. And then comes the next semester and guess what? It starts all over again! How wonderful, no? *hehe  But honestly, you really can't blame me. UTAR have this strict policy of getting a 100% success rate on making their students suffer and they also restrict their students from having a social life. Or maybe even to be a lil more precise, a LIFE. I'm lucky to even be here right now! *blessed :P Here's my face so you won't get bored! Or forget how I look like!  Which ever comes first. Haha Speaking of which, I have these two guy friends that calls me 'Daily Basis'. Just because I upload pictures of myself on a daily basis. Priceless. Haha. *You know who you are. But all jokes aside, I do think that I do that too frequently
