Grimas 3 x disposable sponges

Grimas Make-up Sponges are used for applying all kinds of make-up. Make-up Sponges are available in a round shape (60x30mm, individually packed) and a rectangular shape (40x40x30mm, in packs of 3).

The choice of whether to use a rounded or a rectangular Make-up Sponge is a personal one. The advantage of the angular Make-up Sponges is that there are 3 in a pack, making them relatively cheap. For reasons of hygiene, you should not use the same sponge on more than one person.

Make-up Sponges are disposable and are intended to be thrown away after use. Used and moist Make-up Sponges are a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and fungus. If you decide for economic reasons that you would like to use the Make-up Sponges more than once, rinse them out by hand after each use and wash them in the washing machine at a minimum temperature of 60�C. Use a washing bag or pillowcase to protect both the Make-up Sponges and the washing machine.
