Product Review – e.l.f Solid Sponge Cleanser

Something new but not toooo new. Today’s post is a product review for e.l.f. Cosmetics Solid Makeup Brush & Sponge Cleaner

The e.l.f Solid Sponge Cleaner is a cleanser for sponges but can also be used on your brushes. It works really great on both brushes and sponges.

This product doesn’t leave any residue on your brushes and can work for synthetic and natural fibre brushes without stripping any of the fibres out of your brushes. Safe for all types of brushes and sponges and leaves them feeling really clean and smelling nice.

The product is enriched with charcoal to help clean your brushes more efficiently and help to prevent breakouts in your skin. Comes in a nice secure package so it is easy to take with you if you are traveling.

A nice simple product.

There is no muss of fuss when it comes to this product. Its really easy to use, you wet the product or brush, swoop your brush in the soap, clean your brush and rinse off.

I find it does a fairly great job, in fact i have been using this product for at least a year with no major issues. The price point is what really hooked me and I have never felt the need to try any other brush cleansers. Due to the charcoal in the soap, it does a great job of really cleaning out the creamier makeups one might use.

I also found that even with frequent uses and brush cleanings, this product has lasted me a long time. SO you definitely get your bang for your buck with the little guy.

The only issue I have found when using it is that you have to really make sure to rinse your brushes properly when you use it otherwise your brushes will not dry quickly.

A little fragrant.

The sponge cleanser does have a scent. Its very floral, not unlike their daily brush cleanser. If you aren’t into floral scents I wouldn’t suggest using this cleanser as it can make your brushes smell like flowers after rinsing.

If you really like floral scents like I do, I would definitely try this product out. If you have used their Daily Brush cleanser, its smells exactly like it and honestly its such a refreshing scent.



  • Low price ($4.00 CAD)
  • Easy to take when traveling
  • Easy to use
  • Lasts a long time


  • Smell is strong
  • Can be hard to find in store
  • Can stick to the brushes if not rinsed properly
  • if not rinsed properly the brushes may take longer to dry


In summation

I really love this product. I have consistently suggested this brush cleanser to anyone who has asked. I really enjoy the smell and how easy it is to use. I love the travel case it comes in, even tho I rarely need to take it anywhere. I love it so much that I recently bought a spare!

If you are looking for an affordable brush cleanser, that smells nice and is easy to use I would highly suggest the e.l.f. Cosmetics Solid Makeup Brush & Sponge Cleaner due to its ability to really clean your brushes and leave them feeling soft and fragrant.
