Most of us majorly neglect washing our makeup brushes and I am no exception. A friend (shout-out to my girl Meredith!) recently suggested this makeup brush cleaner pad to me, so I decided to give it a try. The contraption came in three parts: two different sized pads and a pod shaped piece.
WHY IS THIS MAKEUP BRUSH CLEANER SO AWESOME?
It’s so EASY. I just use an antibacterial soap that I had and got to scrubbing. The pad suctions to my sink so I can swish my brushes around the pad, getting all the old foundation and powders out of them. It’s also got different shaped areas to scrub your brush and help get it really clean. I could not believe how much makeup came swirling out of my brushes. Because of the different ridged areas of the cleaner I was able to get my brush a lot cleaner than normal. I used a fine tooth comb to brush through them once they dried.
WHERE CAN I GET THIS BRUSH CLEANER?
Amazon sells a few colors of the specific cleaner pad that I got. There are tons out there but I felt this one was sufficient.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
You can get this makeup brush cleaner for the friendly price of $10. I noticed a few other colors were even a couple dollars cheaper. Personally, this one worked well for me so I don’t see a need to spend extra money.
WHY SHOULD I BOTHER BUYING THIS MAKEUP BRUSH CLEANER?
If you are like me, you’re using your makeup brushes on a daily basis, which means they are gathering more and more makeup. This creates a gross gathering place for bacteria. Over time, your brushes become more rough on your face and just distribute the germs. If you saw my previous post on my skincare routine, you know I am crazy about what goes on my face these days. So with this handy brush cleaner, I can keep my brushes clean and therefore avoid spreading bacteria all over my face. EW!
WAS IT ALL YOU WANTED?
It was, indeed. This makeup brush cleaner pad is my new favorite contraption. I never cleaned my brushes before because when I did, they never felt the same afterwards. But with this cleaner pad, they were SO soft and felt nearly new again!
