Hiya Beauties!!

Happy monday, hope you all had a great weekend!

So my post today is all about this must have item everyone needs! I would definitely say it’s a beauty essential which is funny as that’s the name of the brand. I only Received this last week and I was lucky enough to be gifted this to review And I jumped at the chance it’s something I would have bought myself as it’s so useful and I’ve literally been using it non stop since I got it. If you follow me on snap you would have seen me using it for the first time and I loved it but Keep on reading for my full review!!

What is it you might ask? let me try to explain, so do you ever use a dark powder eyeshadow and then want to use a lighter eyeshadow straight after but want to use the same brush without getting product transfer? If so then This tool is what you need, you basically swirl your brush on the sponge in circle motions and it removes all the product without using water and soap, amazing right?! Sometimes I just don’t have time to clean all my brushes after I’ve used them and wait for them all to dry, as let’s be honest it’s very time consuming  so this is great and so quick and easy to use.

I like the fact it’s hygienic as well, I actually did my sisters makeup at the weekend and she wanted a dark smokey eye so I used this in between all the different shades I was using at the time, and I also cleaned the brushes quickly after so I could use them on myself the next day, I think it’s great that it saves you using about 5 different brushes and also even if you’re just staring out and don’t own a lot of brushes this is perfect to just clean and switch between all different products over and over again.

I’ve used this on a lot of my brushes now and it doesn’t damage them at all, when I first saw the sponge It did look quite hard and reminded me of a brillo pad ha ha but after examining it more it’s nothing like a Brillo pad, it’s obviously harder as the sponge isn’t wet or contain any soap or anything but it didn’t ruin or damage the hairs.


Its small and lightweight which means it’s perfect for travel and on the go , Which I think will benefit a lot of people especially makeup artist.




This is a brand I’ve only recently come across but I’m definitely going to check out more from them as I’m really impressed with this, it’s so affordable at only £5.99 and is available on Amazon and also beauty essentials will be stocking In Sephora!! Amazing and I’m not surprised I think this product will be a huge hit, I’ve actually been telling my mum about this as she uses bright blues and purple eyeshadows and she really liked the idea of it she’s actually ordered herself one.

Also just to let you know that this isn’t the final packaging I believe they are changing the box and tin design but I will add a picture below of the final product for you to see but I still think this packaging is fab!



I am going to get plenty of use out of this and I will definitely be buying refillable sponges for mine when I need them,  The sponges are supposed to be replaced after 2 months and can easily be cleaned by just using water and gentle soap.

I can’t thank Beauty essentials enough for letting me try this fab product. Make sure to give them a follow on Instagram and Twitter

Have you already tried something like this? I think everyone will benefit from one of these but If you’re a massive beauty junkie or makeup artist I would really recommend picking one up! Let me know your thoughts In the comments.


As always thanks for reading xo

    This looks really intriguing! I’m way too lazy and end up just swirling my brush around on my pj bottoms if I want to use it for a different colour, so it sounds like I could definitely benefit from this! 🙂 xx
