Good afternoon 🙂
Most of us who own makeup brushes know how important it is to regularly take the time to clean them. I try to wash mine every 2-3 uses as I hate the idea of bacteria building up and being brushed and buffed into my skin.
I was cleaning my makeup brushes one evening and noticed that I’d ran out of my usual cleaner. I looked in my cupboard for something else to use and I came across a face wash which I didn’t get much use from so I decided to try it out on my brushes. The name of this face wash is Visibly Clear Pore & Shine daily wash by Neutrogena.
I don’t know about anybody else but I’ve always had issues with cleaning my makeup brushes. I’ve tried a lot of products from soap to shampoo to high priced brush cleansers but I’ve never been completely satisfied with the results. Dry bristles, leftover residue and colour staining are just a few of the problems I’ve had.
I can’t even begin to express how happy I was when I tried out the face wash. I dispensed two pumps into a small clean candle jar and swirled my brushes around. As soon as I began to swirl the brushes into the liquid I noticed such a difference compared to anything I had ever used in the past. Stubborn stains and hardened foundation were melting off the bristles. After around 1 minute of gently swirling my brushes, I rinsed them clean with warm water.
I began to dry my brushes against a face cloth and was shocked at how perfectly clean they were. If I had of shown them to you, you would of thought that I had just bought them and taken them out of the packaging. The bristles felt so soft and fluffy against my skin.
The face wash is priced at under £5.00 and is easily available in most stores. I think this is something I’ll continue to repurchase. If you have issues getting your brushes clean make sure you pick this up and try it out, I promise you won’t regret it. I’m over the moon to have finally found something that leaves me feeling satisfied after a brush cleaning session!
What is your go to brush cleaner?
