My Beauty Blender Just Turned 5!

As I was giving my makeup brushes their weekly washing, I realized I've had that Beauty Blender for quite a while. Digging around on my past orders on Drugstore, I discovered that it and my 100% Pure Caffeine Eye Cream were the first things I ever bought on that website. Last month, that pink wobbly turned five. 

I'm kind of amazed it's still in relatively good shape. I remember the You Tube makeup gurus frequently complaining that theirs fell apart after a few months. I use mine almost every day and wash it weekly (sometimes more often). I don't use any special makeup brush cleaner or baby shampoo. I give the credit to another holy grail item, Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash. I buy the giant 32 ounce refill jug. I put it into a foaming hand soap dispenser and wash everything with it, including my face. It easily removed the heaviest makeup from brushes and the Beauty Blender. Big fan here.

Eventually, this little fella will have to retire and I will buy a new Beauty Blender. I am shooting for 7 years out of this one. I think I can, I think I can...
