    1 / 10 Beautyblender Solid Cleanser (28g), $30, Sephora

    Travelling seems like a great excuse to avoid cleaning your makeup brushes, but this solid cleanser takes away the hassle of bringing liquid soap or spray when you go on vacay. All you have to do is wet your Beautyblender, and swirl it around the soap to lather it up. This can be also used to clean brushes – all you’ve got to do is place the grid (which comes with the cleanser) over the block of soap before swirling your brushes.
