I don’t think I’m alone in the “I should clean my makeup brushes more but probably won’t because I’m lazy” category. Or maybe I am? But whatever – I admit it, I don’t clean my brushes nearly enough. I also should know better – I work in a hospital and receive Infection Prevention and Control information and training. *sigh*
I’m not going lecture everyone on why this is actually important (that would be hypocritical) but there are 2 big reasons why I need to step up my hygiene game:
- Germs – they are everywhere and I use brushes on my face so when I think about how unclean my brushes are it’s gross
- Better makeup application – product goes on better, blends better, etc. when you use a clean brush
So in my goal of being less disgusting I picked up Quo’s Purifying Brush Shampoo. The price point was fair and I get shoppers points (WIN/WIN)
- Specially formulated to deep clean your cosmetic brushes, removing unwanted make-up build up
- Shampoo your brushes weekly to prolong their life and to keep them looking and feeling just like new
According to Me
I really like this product! It is a thicker gel so a little goes a long way. It lathers really nicely and I find that it really doesn’t take much time to get my brushes clean. I just put about a dime size in my hand, wet then rub my brushes into my palm (larger brushes might take a bit more product). Then I rinse the shampoo off the brush and let them air dry.
Voila – Clean Brushes. I also find the Quo Brush Shampoo helps keep the brush bristles nice and soft.
If you don’t want to spend too much money on brush cleaner but want one that works and doesn’t ruin your makeup brushes this is definitely worth checking out
