Brush Cleansing Made Easy

DSCN9667Cleaning make-up brushes has become an unhealthy habit of abiding procrastination. There’s just no such thing like indulging yourself in a good brush cleaning sesh – at least not at my house. The procrastination process has however been shortened since I discovered the Clean Brush Shampoo, which is totally life-changing – yes life-changing is exactly the word.

Clean Brush Shampoo comes in two variations and different scents. The one based on olive oil is supposed to be great for conditioning as the one based on goat milk is best at whitening brush hairs. I’ve picked up the goat milk version because of its whitening properties because stained white brushes are just not a pretty sight and quite upsetting. I also got the unscented version because it was the safest bet but I can’t deny that I’m curious how the actual scented ones smell like …

Cleaning your brushes has never been this easy – believe me. It has a solid texture housed in a badass tub – well I did get the biggest size (4oz). Wet your brush, swirl your brush in the soap, swirl onto your hand, rinse and done. Hold the soap under the tap to rinse away dirt. Titanium dioxide and goat milk powder are natural whiteners and really effective! I do need to mention that my MAC 217 turned slightly greenish. Honestly it’s barely visible … Not really sure what happened there but I didn’t had that problem with any other brush. I don’t really mind though, one use and your concerns already belong to the past. Brushes that were stained before now look almost brand new. Revolutionary? You tell me. So far I haven’t skipped one Sunday Brush Cleaning Day, what does that tell you?

    I use the Barbara Hoffman brush cleansing soap, works also good.

      Oh you too? They are probably very similar, but I had never heard about the brand before! As long as it keeps our brushes clean, right? ;) X

    I have seen this product but wondered if it were really different from using solid soap. The before/after is amazing though, your brushes’ whistles really do look super white. x

      It facilitates the job SO much and for me it’s a winner because my white bristles used to be stained and look at them now … That just says it all! X

    I’ve been using my Barbara Hoffman brush soap for the last 2 years and the soap isn’t even gone yet. There’s a huge dent from where I swirl my brushes and I’m curious when I’ll see the bottom of it!

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Hi Lily! Oh, that looks something very similar indeed. Well, I’m also pretty sure that it will last me an eternity. Don’t have to worry to repurchase it any time soon, LOL. X

    Hey, this looks kinda sorta like the Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser that I have been obsessed with! Can you also take the soap out? The BB one has a little tray at the bottom so the water doesn’t stay on the soap.

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Hi Sunny! I actually hesitated to get either this or the Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser. Clean Brush Shampoo promised to whiten brush hairs and since I had stained brushes, I just had to try this! It doesn’t come with a tray – which is a shame – but I just let the water leak out. I hope that works fine! X

      • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

        Now I think of it. The soap is adhered to the packaging so no water seeps in, if that makes sense to you? So I think a tray would be nice – just in case – but not really necessary for now. X

    I just use Zwitsal baby shampoo. Works fine.

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Yup I’ve used Zwitsal for years but I genuinely disliked washing brushes and on top of that, it left my brushes stained. Now I almost enjoy it. It’s just so quick and easy! But if Zwitsal works fine for you, the better! :d X
