If you are a compact powder or foundation user I guess you ought to know that you need to wash your sponge when it’s dirty. Or should I say when the powder no longer stick to the sponge or your face look cakey after application? For me I will wash my sponge when I see that the powder on the sponge is all cramped together. When I see that it means it’s time for a bath time.
Ever since I discovered Daiso 2 years ago, saw this Daiso Detergent For Puff and Sponge on the shelve and bought a bottle home…I never look back. I had repurchase so many times since then that I lost count on how many bottles I’ve used up. I have no reason to. It’s cheap and affordable for all income level plus it’s really that good. How cheap is cheap? Everyone know Daiso sells everything for RM5 each! Yes RM5!
The bottle design is kept simple and easy to use. Totally hassle free. Just flip the cap and pour and pour and pour.
Most of the product sold in Daiso are made and imported from Japan. Which explains the Japanese wording on the back of the bottle. But fret not. Daiso Detergent For Puff and Sponge is one of the handful products in Daiso that has English instruction printed on it.
One thing I don’t understand is that the instruction stated that the detergent are to be used on a dry sponge. I find that dry sponge are harder to wash and clean. But I always pour onto a dry sponge first and emulsify the detergent with a rinse of water after that.
The detergent is quite runny and watery so please be alert when you’re squeezing the bottle while pouring out to your sponge. As I mentioned before I pour onto a dry sponge as per instruction. Then I’d emulsify with a rinse of water. The powder will just comes off the sponge in a jiffy. I’d pour more detergent as needed until the sponge is completely clean and white.
The only thing I don’t like is the smell. It may smell okay to most people but it smells weird to me heh! I don’t know how to explain the smell but it’s not as smelly as Elizabeth Arden capsule serum LOL!!!
Here’s the result. A squeaky clean sponge just like a new one.
For RM5 a bottle this is a gem. It’s not often I can find a detergent just for puff and sponge so this is a keeper. It does what it promise and performed way better than expected.
I’m aware that some people use this detergent to clean their makeup brushes. Well, I don’t. I stick to what was stated on the bottle which is for puff and sponge. I have other cleanser for makeup brushes :). There’s nothing wrong using this for brushes. You actually can do that. I just choose not to.
Have you tried the detergent before? If not you should pay a visit to Daiso. There is lots of other discovery there too. Just bring more money!
