“ Type: Brushes / Brand: Sephora / Subcategory: Styling Brush „
Now before I start this review I will say I'm not actually sure if this is available in the UK, for anyone that is interested in purchasing I think you can get it on specialist sites online. I Could be totally wrong though!
Anyway a present arrived a few days ago (yes I opened it!!) and it was a big Sephora gift set from my auntie. Full of mostly make-up brushes in all different shapes and sizes but there was also a brush cleaning spray. Now I had never really heard of brush cleaner before, I usually clean mine with soap and water but I thought this was would be so much easier and quicker! I had actually been meaning to give all my make-up brushes and applicators a wash for quite some time so receiving this product forced me to do so.
This I think only comes in a travel sized 60 ml bottle, and even though I have only used it a few times the spray has barely gone down because you don't need very much at a time. So I would suggest that one bottle of this will last you around a year and a half, but I guess it all depends on how often you use it.
This cleaner comes in as I just mentioned a 60ml black and white tube, it sort of reminds me of the Tressemme design although I wouldnt recommend putting this on your hair lol!
It has a push down nozzle like you get on perfumes, this is the best way to apply it, I think some people dip their brushes right into the solution but I definitely recommend you just spray it.
I first used this one one of my eye shadow brushes one which I had been using to apply black eyeshadow for quite some time so you can probably tell how dirty it had become.
*-* Application: *-*
1. Spray around 3-4 sprays of this directly onto your dirty make-up brush sprays depending on the size of the brush.
2. Gently wipe onto a towel or other lint free cloth to remove all grubby make-up
3. There is no need to rinse or dry the brush it dries automatically in the air.
That's it. Then that will leave you with fresh, clean and best of all bacteria free make-up brushes.
The anti-bacterial element in this cleaner is a really nice touch. It kills any germs or bacteria on the brushes as soon as it is sprayed on so when you come to use the brush next you wont get any nasty rashes and it wont irritate those with sensitive skin.
Also the smell is worth mentioning I think. This spray doesnt smell great. It does smell quite strongly on chemicals when you spray it, I assume this is whats makes the solution so powerful. This smell fades away SUPER quick though and will not still be lingering when you use the brush again.
*-* Did It Leave My Brushes Squeaky Clean? *-*
I was actually pretty surprised when it worked really well. As I mentioned earlier most of my make-up brushes were in a pretty dire state and after using this they actually looked brand spanking new. So if it works on those terrible brushes it will certainly work on brushes you use everyday. I have used it on eye shadow applicators, bronzer brushes, eyebrow brushes well pretty much every single one I own and it has worked on every one so any brush in you make-up case will be happy to see this spray!
If this was available worldwide or locally I would be buying it all the time and it would be the only one I used. Because it isn't available everywhere and for every budget I do have to knock of two stars but the product itself is fantastic. It works wonderfully and just does exactly what it says on the tin. The anti-bacterial qualities only make this an even better and more astounding spray. I cant believe when I started writing this review I thought I wouldnt be able to find even 150 words to say on this and now look at me blabbering on!
Anyway if you can get your hands on this it is definitely worth it and I highly recommend it to any woman! Or even men if you like to wear make-up =]
