My friend Larissa makes soap. She and her husband run several home based businesses and soap is one of their really great products that they make under the name Reef Botanicals. I’ve been using her Purity soap for a couple of years now… it is pure soap and is great on my skin AND practically a miracle cleaner for my brushes and sponges.
I blogged about the Purity when I first got some from her (you can read that old post here).
Well, she has now started packaging Purity especially for us face and body painters! In a big tub that can sit on the side of the sink ready to use! So I just have to tell everyone about it again.
I was leaving a bar sitting on a yoghurt container lid sitting there… have to admit this looks WAY better!
I am not leaving the lid on… but thought I’d show it for illustration purposes.
And this what my new tub of Purity did for me this morning:
It is much lighter. Some colours just soak into the taklon fibre and green is one of the worst. As long as I can lighten them to the point of NOT looking dirty/unwashed, I am happy.
But looky what Purity can do for sponges!!
Now, in order to get these kind of results you need to handwash and work the lather in, sometimes repeatedly … just saying. Some people can’t be bothered to put that much effort into having their sponges looking new, but if you are willing you WILL get results like this.
