Just like the name suggests, a beauty sterilizer is a small appliance that helps sterilize your beauty products like brushes, sponges, and other tools to maintain hygiene and avoid bacteria build up.
This is the Lelevani UV Sterilizer ($179). It uses UV-C germicidal fluorescent light and a highly reflective interior surface to kill 99.9% of bacteria and germs within minutes.
The Lelevani includes several shelf/basket inserts to help support the tools you're sterilizing, like this brush shelf.
Sterilizing your brushes regularly can help keep your skin clear, as you're removing acne-causing bacteria from a tool that touches your face daily.
The Lelevani is not only a sterilizer, though. It also has a low-temperature drying function to help dry freshly washed brushes and sponges!
When doing both a drying and sterilizing cycle, the whole process takes 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Low-temp air dry cycles in 60, 75 or 90 minutes
60 minutes of low-temp drying, 10 minutes of UV sterilization
UV-only 10 minute cycle
Aside from beauty tools, you can even sterilize your every day electronics, keys, face masks and more using the UV-only cycle (do not use heat on electronics).
Should you buy one? Being able to sterilize beauty tools can make a big impact on the foundation of any makeup look: the health of your skin!
I'm awful at washing my brushes. Anything that can help me keep my brushes more hygienic between deep cleans, and then speed up the cleaning/drying process is a must-have in my book.
