Believe it or not this is the first brush cleaner I’ve ever bought, I’ve always washed my brushes with baby shampoo and never had a problem. I purchased Face Secrets Professional Brush Cleaner about a month ago and I’ve been meaning to try it and do a review. The only reason why I bought it was because it was 50% off at Sally’s Beauty Supplies, I think I only paid $4.99 for it. I have never heard of this brand so I figured I would clean a few of my older brushes that I don’t use that often, just in case. .
For this review, I cleaned three different brushes, eyeshadow, concealer and a medium sized powder brush. They were all spot cleaned and I have to say I’m happy with the results. The brushes I used for this need to be deep cleaned so I wasn’t expecting them to be 100% makeup free, they had a lot of built up makeup on them. I ‘m surprised at how quick they dried, I guess I'm used to using baby shampoo and water so that’s why. All I did was pour a little bit of the cleaner into a small plastic bowl and dipped the bristles in for a second then wiped them on a paper towel until I couldn’t see anymore makeup on the paper towel. For my powder brush I poured some in an empty spray bottle, I learned that tip from YouTube guru EnKore, he said its better to use a spray bottle on your bigger brushes. There is one con to this product, I don’t like the fact that its blue only because when I cleaned one of my lighter brushes I noticed that it stained a small part of my brush. It could have been worse and stained all the bristles. I did have low expectations for this product mainly because I’ve never heard of the brand. I am glad I bought it though. That just shows you cant judge a beauty product by its cover..lol
How do you guys clean your makeup brushes and what products do you use?
