The big question is, is it ok to clean our mascara wands??
I had doubts about 'adding' germs to the wand from the water and tissue but I decided to give my mascara a good cleaning cause I couldn't stand the clumps no more.
I decided to clean my everyday fave mascara, Cosmagic Exte Bomber mascara which was one of the very first few beauty items I've reviewed!
I know we're supposed to throw our mascara away after 3 months bla bla bla... But as long as the mascara does not irritate my eyes, I'll keep going. XD
I WILL NOT ABANDON YOU MASCARA!!
Here's the wand before it's 'cleaning session'. It had loads of fiber stuck in between the combs and the tip, but none of the fibers actually properly transfers to my lashes! The fiber application was clumpy and seriously, clumpy fiber makes clumps super obvious and I really disliked that!
I first wiped off all excess mascara onto a piece of tissue. There was soooo much product all clumped on the wand (pic above) and I really wondered how much product did I actually wipe away. Probably months and months of mascara, but oh well. XD
I finished off by wiping the wand on a piece of facial wipe and running the wand under luke warm water.
Voilà!! Clean mascara wand!
After cleaning the wand, the mascara application was very much smoother and the fibers were distributed evenly on my lashes.
I was really glad I gave my mascara wand a good cleaning cause now I can continue to use my favourite mascara for a lil longer!
Btw, I also read that you can clean your wand by dipping it into cleaning alcohol or something like that. That sounds like a good idea, but don't take my word for that. ^.~
Have you ever cleaned your mascara wand before?
