I tried a little foil packet of this product and followed the instructions to put the cleanser directly onto the beauty blender, and wasn't really impressed. It only seemed to clean the parts that the cleanser was squeezed right onto and didn't lather well enough to spread throughout and clean the entire sponge. BUT then I got another sample randomly and decided to try a different method, and the results were great! I take a small amount (about a dime size, nickel at the very most) of the cleanser and put it in my hands like I'm going to wash my hands. I run them together with a little water to get a lather in my palms, then take the sponge and rub it in between my palms using the same "hand washing" motions, and rinsing the sponge a few times in between rubbing and lightly squeezing the sponge. In less than a minute my sponge is totally clean! Rinse with cool water and squeeze to get it started drying and it's good to go, just like new! So glad I have this another try and tried a different way of using it - I use my beauty blender so much more now that cleaning it is so quick and easy!
