Anyway, despite it’s pro moniker, you needn’t have an elite client roster, and let’s say, travel to Dubai to teach Kim Kardashian-inspired masterclasses a la Mario Dedivanovic or La Mer’s makeup guru, Patrick Ta to put the pro version of the popular, travel-friendly version of the makeup brush and sponge cleanser to work. Unlike its regular-sized predecessor, this jumbo jar will last you more than a couple washes—more like a couple of months. And as we’ve noted with its liquid cousin, you can use the Solid Pro to work through your entire brush kit. (Again, we cannot stress the importance of cleansing your makeup brushes enough: this model is case in point.)
The new cleanser, which launches in March, doesn’t only comes with a little more than five times more product, it also has a new formula. Just as the black packaging suggests, the solid cleanser is black, too. (In case you aren’t aware, the regular-sized one is white.) It gets its dark color from charcoal. Yup, the detoxifying ingredient isn’t just awesome for skin care, it’s great for deep cleaning all of your makeup tools, too—think brushes, combs, and blenders. The new cleanser also comes with a silicone scrubbing pad, as all Beautyblender cleanser (or the) do. As we learned from the $1 AOA Brush Cleaning Egg, the grooves and ridges of the pad help dislodge all the nasties on your brushes and sponges that you can’t see with the naked eye. So just in case you haven’t tried a brush-scrubbing pad before, know you have the allure.com seal of approval.The Beautyblender brush mat also doubles as a place to dry the cleanser (which is lavender scented, BTW) after using it to cleanse brushes and sponges.
To make you understand just how jumbo this jumbo tub is, check out these photos. Here is the upcoming Beautyblender Blendercleanser Solid Pro.
And this is the OG Beautyblender Blendercleanser Solid.
Quite literally huge, right?
The only downside of the mega-sized cleanser is it is not as travel-friendly as the Blendercleanser Solid. However, the pro version makes up for that in value. The OG cleanser comes with one ounce of product and costs $16. The Beautyblender Blendercleanser Solid Pro, on the other hand, is 5.3 ounces and costs $45. We’ll save you from pulling up the calculator app on your phone by doing the math for you. The purchase of the pro-sized cleanser would save you $39.80. You can use that money to buy more mini Beautyblenders and the. (The Beautyblender collabs with Benefit and Too Faced were obviously too cute, too.)
The Beautyblender Blendercleanser Solid Pro will be in March on sephora.com. Can’t wait until then to get your hands on their signature formula, which yes, has serious germ-busting abilities in addition to that soothing smell? Don’t blame you. Check out the.
