5 of the Best Makeup Brush Cleansers. Let’s face it. It’s one of those mundane tasks that nobody likes to do but it’s one of those things that is very important.
That’s right. I’m talking about cleaning your makeup brushes.
As many of use know, they are a breeding ground for bacteria and dirt. And while it’s tedious to clean them, if avoided,they can lead to unwanted spots and irritation.
If you can take the time to clean all the makeup off your face at the end of the day, you should be finding time to clean all the makeup off your brushes.
While there may be beauty buffs out there who clean their brushes every day, giving your brushes a quick wash once a week is acceptable, as long as you don’t skip the once-a-month deep clean.
I’ve tracked down 5 of the best makeup brush cleansers on the market.
StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer €52.49
The StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner will instantly clean AND dry your brushes. It’s particularly effective for eyeshadow brushes as it gets brushes that use powder products squeaky clean. And as it both cleans and dries, it saves you time at the bathroom sink cleaning and then waiting for your brushes to dry.
Cinema Secrets Professional Brush Cleaner €22.50
This product makes cleaning your brushes a super simple affair. It works well on all kinds of brushes and cleans off powders, creams, liquid and even shimmery highlighter which can be a nightmare to get off your brushes.
Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser €18.00
This cleanser from Clinique will thoroughly clean your brushes and get rid of any makeup residue build-up. It’s a great option for deep cleaning and leaves your bristles in optimal condition. It leaves your brushes squeaky clean and is gentle enough to use for a weekly deep cleaning of your high end brushes.
M.A.C Brush Cleanser €15.50
This M.A.C cleanser is very effective for those in-between deep cleanings. It removes every last bit of makeup and leaves your brushes clean and pristine. The only problem is the packaging. As it doesn’t come with a pump or spray and as the product has a liquid consistency, the lid of the bottle leads to sheer wastage of cleanser.
beautyblender Blendercleanser Solid €11.00
This one is for cleaning your makeup sponges and beauty blenders. It does a great job at making your blender feel as good as new and allows it to stay in a proper condition for much longer (as opposed to just using soap and water). And most important, it keeps your blender free from bacteria.
