MAC Brush Cleanser
Advantages: Cleans well
I wear make-up every day and use about four or five brushes so they do need cleaning at least once a week plus I wipe them every day after use with a facial wipe. I use shampoo normally to wash brushes however because I use s lot of water when I do wash them with shampoo it is nice to use the Mac brush cleaner every now and again because it dries much quicker.
The MAC brush cleaner comes in a clear see through plastic bottle. I always prefer bottles to be clear because it gives an indication of when you need to get more, rather than guess. The bottle has a black push down lid which is a nice and simple way of getting the cleaner out. There is 233ml of brush cleaner and is a purpley pink colour.
The product is great at cleaning brushes, it removes foundation a lot better than shampoo. I recommend dampening the brush you are cleaning and thrn applying this product on cotton wool and wiping the brush with it. MAC claims : "This one product will clean, disinfect and condition the brush fibres so that brushes will last longer. It is convenient to use and is specifically designed to extend the life of high quality brushes. Brush Cleanser leaves your brushes smelling fresh and clean and helps shorten their drying time."
The brushes always look much better once cleaned by the brush cleaner and it is great that it disinfects the brushes too, however, although I think it cleans brushes well I would like to point out it never leaves my brushes completely clean, they usually still have foundation lurking on them, obviously not as much but it never is 100 per cent foundation free. The blusher brush and eye brushes however do look much more "new" after been cleaned. Foundation is a tricky one to get completely out of things anyway, so this could be why.
The brush cleaner is £9.50. Which is quite expensive and is something that I don't use daily because of this. I tend to wash my brushes with shampoo and once every month or two I use the cleaner as a treat !
Overall, I do like this brush cleaner but it is quite expensive for what it is and how much you get for the price. Its something I would keep getting because it I important to disinfect your make-up brushes because they hold tons of bacteria. Due to the price I give this product 4/5 it would get 5 stars if it was cheaper.
Summary: Good despite price
