I know in last week's post (here) I said that this week's post would be either an E.L.F haul or a Gerard Cosmetics haul, but I picked up this brush cleanser in Superdrug, used it, and was so blown away I just needed to blog about it. The hauls will have to wait!
Everyone knows how good the Real Techniques brushes are so it is no surprise that their brush cleanser is just as fantastic.
It takes ages, you get all messy and they're never 100% clean.
Usually I use liquid soap and make up remover to clean my brushes and it takes me at least 20 minutes minimum.
I used the Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel and it took me about 15 minutes to clean 12 brushes!
Here's how dirty my brushes were to start with:
I will get to the review, but first I want to talk about a little silicone brush cleaner I recently bought that sits on your finger tips. I think Real Techniques have bought their own one out but I just bought mine from Amazon and it's made a world of difference!
It cleans your brushes better than just using your finger tips and I don't know about you, but I always end up getting pruney fingers and a sore palm!
You just pop it on the end of your index and middle finger like a little glove and you're good to go.
It has two textures so you can clean big brushes such as foundation brushes and little brushes like eyeshadow brushes.
So here are the pros:
- It smells delicious; it reminds me of Calippo ice lollies in the summer- it's very fruity.
- It cuts brush cleaning time in half
- A little goes a long way so it'll last you ages
- It costs £6.99 which I think is a reasonable price to pay especially as you get so much of it.
- It's a lovely gel formula which foams up
- It rinses clean really easily.
- I actually enjoyed cleaning them! I know right.
Look how clean my brushes are now!
I will definitely be washing my brushes more often from now on.
Leave me a comment from your lovely brain and I will be back next week reviewing the Milani Baked Blush in the colour Luminoso, so pop back for that!
Speak to you soon,
