[Daiso] – Detergent for Puff and Sponge

IMAG3869Been wanting to write about this amazing puff/sponge/brush cleaner for a while. But you know me procrastination and laziness always gets me!

In any case, a number of years back I bought this from Daiso out of curiosity. Also because it’s made in Japan, and I have yet to be disappointed by anything made in Japan. Even though the name says it’s for puff and sponge, I also use it on my brushes, and it works amazing on all the tools.

I’ve used up maybe 5 bottles of this stuff already(?) and I will never switch to anything else. Before I found this product I was using baby shampoo as recommended by some beauty bloggers because I refused to pay $$$ for cleansers for my brushes/sponges/puffs. But this bottle of 80ml cleanser lasts me quit a long period of time (never really counted how long it lasts), and costs $2 from Daiso. I usually hoard them when I get a chance to go.

When I was using baby shampoo, normally I would need to wash a brush 2 maybe 3 times to actually see that it’s cleaner (not completely clean, just cleaner). But with this little bottle, once is enough to clean the brush/sponge/puff. It not only saves money, it also affects the longevity of your make-up tools.

Here are some amazing pictures of before and after:

This is a brush I use for my bronzer, this has about 3 or 4 months of product in it. You can see the brozner on the bristles, the top of the brush is suppose to be white.


Normally I would wet the brush first, put some of the detergent on my hand, and work it into the brush. Here is the brush after about a min. You can see the brush is already cleaner than the picture before.


And here it is after the soap is rinsed off. I only went through it once, no other tools other than the detergent and my hand.


A couple of days of air drying, and voila! As good as new!


Here is a sponge for press foundation. I don’t use press foundation much, but sponges should be clean after each use (not that I do that…). Anyways, there is still quite a bit of product on the sponge. You can see the obvious colour difference between the top of the sponge and bottom of the sponge.


This is how much of the product I use on the sponge. Initially it doesn’t absorb into the sponge.


You have to work it in a bit. This is only a few seconds of working the soap into the sponge and you can already notice the difference between this and before it was clean.


And here it is all clean. Not even a trace of the foundation. Just let it air dry over night and you have a nice clean sponge to use again in the morning.


For $2 I think this product is amazing. I personally have not tried any of the other products out there that are made especially for cleaning make-up tools, but if the result is the same as this one, why would  I want to spend $20 more for the same product?

This product has no scent, and really nothing special about it, other than it’s amazing cleaning ability. It gets a 5/5 from me. 🙂

[Review Update] – Daiso Charcoal Peel Mask

Dec 25, 2011

Merry Christmas y’all! Man Christmas is so boring…I’ve been stuck at home all day because there are no places to go for people that don’t celebrate Christmas such as myself, and so I decided to blog, on Christmas day.

This is really more of an update on a previous blog I had, and I am going to warn you guys, there is a bit of grossness in this blog as well. This is an updated review of the Daiso Charcoal Peel Mask that I have done previously. Since the first review I have gone through 3 tubes of this thing, I love it! It does get a bit drying after peeling and stings a bit if you don’t cool your skin down right away (with cold water or some sort of moisturising mask). But it is recently that I found out it works a lot better than I have though it does. Recall from my first post, it didn’t pull out a lot of black heads for me and was mostly fine hairs that comes off, I have recently realized that it is because I did not leave it on for long enough before I started peeling. Normally I would leave it on until it pretty much is all dry, but still had a bit of rubbery consistency, it is easier to peel off and is less painful. But about 2 or 3 weeks ago I was giving myself a manicure while waiting for this mask to dry, it dried out before I was done my manicure, so I left it on until I was done, which was another 10 to 15 mins of drying time. The mask felt brittle and a bit paper-like (not rubbery) when I peeled it off, a whole bunch of gunk came out with it, especially from my chin. I have always had issues with black heads on my chin area, I was amazed at how much of the black head it pulled out from my chin. The pictures below are not from the first time this happened, I tried it again a week later, and this was what came out. (grossness starts here). I did take the pictures with my phone, so I apologize for the blurriness, this is the best I could do.



I just got a new camera from Bestbuy with their online boxing day sale, so hopefully I can be back with nice pictures soon enough 🙂

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Y’all!!
