We spend so much time and money picking out the perfect skin care products, selecting the best makeup, perfecting our look and using the right tools—-so why am I always skipping cleaning my brushes?
Honestly for me, cleaning my brushes is up there with flossing my teeth – something I know I should be doing, and know it’s good for me…but somehow still neglect it.
This past summer my skin was at its absolute worst. I decided I needed to make some skincare routine changes, and amongst other things, I stopped giving myself excuses and started cleaning my brushes and tools on a daily basis (if I use it I clean it).
Quo has always been my go to brush shampoo – and when I saw that they had a Brush Cleansing Shampoo with Argan Oil I figured the amount my brushes are used and cleaned, they earned some TLC!
According to Quo
- Conditions and cleans synthetic and natural cosmetic brush hair.
- Quo®/MD Brush Cleansing Shampoo with Argan Oil is formulated to deep clean your cosmetic brushes, removing unwanted buildup of cosmetics.
- Shampoo your brushes weekly to prolong their life and to keep them looking and performing like new!
According to Me
I cannot say enough good things about this product…I am amazed at the price point given the high quality! A little goes a long way so you get a lot of bang for your buck. It foams well and easily removes the product off the bristles (pro tip using a cleansing mat makes it even speedier…thanks Beauty Vixen for my Black Cat one).
I also think my makeup applies better, and blends better, with clean brushes. My skin is also pretty happy that I’m not spreading bacteria and gunk into my pores.
I was worried that frequent cleaning would wear on the brushes, but I think the argan oil really does restore and treat them.
My only 2 complaints (which are just personal preferences) so far is
- I’m not a fan of the perfume scent, and
- I really wish it was made in Canada
