Nobody wants a clumpy or covered with globs mascara unless spider lashes look is what you’re going for. And for those of us who simply love to put an emphasis in keeping our makeup products and tools clean (and you probably should, too), I think this next beauty ‘cube’ tool has finally come to the rescue.
Twist N Clean is the kind of beauty tool that does exactly what it says on the tin. Thanks to its creator, Stephen Isola, an architect and product developer with a passion for solving problems. And clumpy mascara was, indeed, one of the problems Stephen Isola’s wife was having. As a problem solver (and great observer at that), Stephen just felt the need to get this issue fixed, and thank goodness he did!

It’s the answer to our clumpy lashes woes and also a much cleaner and safer alternative to using cotton rounds or tissues since it’s lint-free as well as 100% biodegradable and non-toxic. It’s made of non-GMO cornstarch and the best part, it’s flushable since it dissolves when it gets in contact with water.
Another big plus is the fact that you can use both sides! Just take out the insert and flip it once you’re done with the top part of the cube and voila, the cleaning game begins once again. Because this is lint-tree and is 100% non-toxic, this doesn’t affect your makeup’s formulation, if this is something that concerns you.
I have been using this product for weeks and all I can say is that it has motivated me to wear mascaras often and also turning me more into a clean freak. As I have very sensitive eyes, I always make sure that I clean the applicator after each use before putting it back in the tube. Twist N Clean has given me that peace of mind especially since mascaras and applicators are perfect breeding ground for bacteria if we’re not careful. Hence we’re supposed to throw them out afterr 3 months of usage since the last thing you want is a horrible infection!

Twist N Clean is available on their official website for $9.99, which comes with a box case with mirror and one insert (great during makeup application while on the go!). You can also buy the refills ( 8 inserts) for $10.99, a four month supply or the Combination Pack for $17.99 (that’s the box case with mirror & 1 insert plus the Refills (8 inserts).
So if you ask me, would I buy this product again (or refills)? Heck, YES! And I would absolutely recommend that you check Twist N Clean, too! It’s a simple beauty tool that makes such a big difference.
