It’s the end of the week and of course, this calls for a deep brush cleaning day! I’m super lazy when it comes to cleaning my makeup brushes but I hadn’t done so in a while and they really needed a good clean so I thought I’d share with you guys, my brush cleaning routine, it’s super simple!
I have gone through a variety of brush cleaning products like shampoos and soaps as well as soap bars but I haven’t found any to do as great a job as the BlenderCleanser. Primarily used for cleaning the makeup off your Beauty Blender but I’ve found it works just as well for make up brushes too!
This blender cleanser perfectly cleans the Beauty Blender, leaving it as good as new -with a lovely, light, lavender scent.
With a pump dispenser, it squirts the perfect amount of product to clean your brushes and blender – I tend to use one pump for each brush and two for the more dense brushes. It lasts ages! I’ve used less than half and I’ve probably had the cleanser for nearly a year now.
When I went to IMATS (see my IMATS haul here), I bought another Beauty Blender (for those lazy days) and with it, I received a mini version of the blendercleanser and solid for free! The solid is basically like a bar of soap, I haven’t tried this out yet so can’t compare the liquid to the solid just yet, but will do in a future post 🙂
So all I do is run the tap of warm water, take a pump of the blendercleanser, dip the brush into the cleanser and swirl the brush into my palm with the water running through the the hairs until all the product is out, and the brush looks as good as new! It’s that easy 🙂
Beauty Blender Cleaning
This one’s a little tricker as you have to be careful not to puncture a hole in your beauty blender (Confession: I have a hole in mine 😦 ) I apply some cleanser onto the blender and gently slide my thumb along the blender, pushing the product away under warm water. And thats it!
How do you guys clean your brushes? I’ve read in some reviews that this cleanser actually removes some of the pink dye on the blender, but it has worked really well for me and I haven’t experienced that, have any of you? I also really want to try a soap bar from Lush to clean my brushes, what do you think?
I’d love to hear your thoughts 🙂
P.S. I used my new camera for the photos in this post! 😀 Check out my post here if you haven’t already! What do you think of the photos?
