STYLPRO Spin & Squeeze Makeup Brush and Sponge Cleaner half price £27.99 at Boots
We love a beauty product that cuts dull tasks in half. Makeup tools are a breeding ground for bacteria, which can cause spots and skin irritation. Most traditional cleaning methods are messy and time consuming, leaving brushes wet and unusable for hours and sponges clogged with makeup. With the STYLPRO Spin & Squeeze, you can spin your makeup brushes and sponges back to their old selves again! Our specially designed cleansers work in a unique method to cleanse your beauty tools of dirt and makeup, leaving them ready to use instantly.

COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser £18 Superdrug
COSRX is a cult-trending skincare brand – we’ve all seen their snail mucin products. But their Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser is Google trending, and for good reason! This nourishing cleansing wash helps to treat and prevent breakouts. Infused with a potent blend of Tea Tree Oil, Willow Bark Water and 0.5% Salicylic Acid, the cleanser gently removes dirt, excess oil and product build-up while replenishing moisture in order to combat the underlying causes of blemishes and breakouts. The result is a touchably soft, visibly clearer complexion that boasts a natural glow.
