If you’re anything like me, you don’t wash your makeup brushes anywhere near enough. This is because it’s such a chore to do, it can take up to an hour for me to wash my brushes, and the usual lazy persons shampoo method takes ages to truly get them clean. Makeup experts say you should clean your brushes after every use, but for us thats generally just too much effort! However, I have managed to find my makeup brushes new saviour; Technic’s Brush Cleanser. This amazing product makes it insanely easy to clean your brushes. Now, you can wash your brushes as often as you want because this really makes it so easy!
The cleanser is a solid, almost balm like consistency. It is quite clear coloured in the tub, but it isn’t at all liquid or gel like, which is more what I had expected, so this was quite a surprise. It smells very lightly of cucumber which is nicely refreshing, but let’s get onto what it actually does.
Firstly, you wet the brush you want to clean. It doesn’t have to be super wet, but quite wet is good. Then, swirl it into the cleanser; don’t worry about getting any of the pigment from the brush onto the soap, as it simply washes away with a splash of water leaving it looking as good as new. Then, you swirl it around in your hand and you’ll see literally all the makeup from the brush just vanish!! It’s kind of insane how well this works! Anyway, you then just need to wash away the excess soap from the brush pretty thoroughly, as sometimes there can be some excess left over in the base of the brush. I then dry it by swirling my brush on a towel, and I find they actually dry kind of quicker when I use this too. Also, this leaves the brush super super soft, which I love. It has improved the quality of my brushes, and I’m super happy with it!
It retails for £6.51 on amazon, and for the amount of product you get, this is amazing. It’s going to last you for a long long time, and so it’s really affordable, especially for such a great product.
