To stop the build-up of germs in your makeup sponges we recommend you clean your makeup sponges once per week. Makeup sponges can harbour millions of bacteria, so it's important to keep them clean before applying them to your face.

he STYLPRO Squeeze comes with a small, 85ml bottle of Sponge Sparkle Cleanser. The larger 250ml bottle of Sponge Sparkle Cleanser is sold separately here .

For best results and to cut through stubborn, long stay foundation, we recommend to use the specially formulated STYLPRO Squeeze Sponge Sparkle Cleansing solution..

 

No, unfortunately not. In order to leave brushes both clean and silky soft, our Brush Cleanser includes a blend of conditioning oils such as argon and wheat germ. Sponges however are made from foam, and require a different formulation to leave them clean and soft. Using the STYLPRO Brush Cleanser instead of the especially formulated Sponge Sparkle Cleanser may not only leave your sponge with a slightly oily feel, but will not clean your sponge as effectively.

For sponges that are being used on your own face, you may re-use the cleanser and water. For sponges that may be used on others (Makeup Artists) we suggest changing the solution after each wash. However, best results are achieved when you change the cleanser for each sponge, massaging the cleanser into your sponge and using recently boiled water.

No, your sponges will not need rinsing after cleaning. The spinning action of the STYLPRO Squeeze removes the majority of the cleanser and water, leaving the sponge with just enough moisture to begin reapplying foundation without the need to dampen your sponge.

We recommend using recently boiled water in order to deal with the bacteria in your sponge. Boil a kettle and leave to cool for a few minutes. Please use with caution.

Use the press and the side of the bowl to scoop the sponge out of the water. Please use with caution.

A small amount of water and our STYLPRO Sponge Sparkle Cleanser, a gentle solution with ingredients common in skincare products. The Sponge Sparkle Cleanser is registered by the Vegan society and is free from oil, fragrances, alcohol, paraben and sulphate.

Yes, when the STYLPRO Squeeze is used with the Sponge Sparkle Vegan Cleanser, your makeup sponge will receive a deep clean, reducing bacteria and ridding your sponge of dirt and makeup. Depending on how dirty the sponge is and the last time it was cleaned, it may have to be cleaned more than once.

We have tested the STYLPRO Squeeze with a huge range of makeup sponges and most sponge shapes and types will fit into the press.

We recommend not using excessive force or rough movements when using the STYLPRO Squeeze with your sponge. In cases of excessive force being used, some damage to your sponge may occur. We therefore suggest gently massaging and kneading your sponge with the press to avoid damage.

The STYLPRO Squeeze can only clean one regular-sized makeup sponge at a time, however some smaller sponges may fit more than one sponge into the press.
