Today I am sharing how I clean my makeup brushes effectively but affordably…
I hate washing my makeup brushes, I buy new brushes so that I have more time in between washes. But, washing your brushes is important for your skin, and just for general hygiene. There are so many expensive brush cleaning aids out there, such as the Sigma Brush Cleaner Glove and Mat, as well as all the Brush Shampoos. But this post is to shed some light on how cheaper alternatives can do the job just as well, maybe even better.
Rubybox Fresh in a Flash Brush Cleaner is an amazing quick clean product. You just spray it on your brush, and wipe it with a tissue. This works well as a pre-cleanse to your big wash, as well as a quick fix between your proper washes. Unfortunately Rubybox doesn’t sell these anymore, but I will do some research on an alternative. If any of you know of one, please do let me know.
Rubber Pet Brush, yes I use a pet brush. This brush works so well. After using a few squirts of the Rubybox brush cleaner on my dirty brush and rinsing it off, I put a few drops of baby shampoo on this pet brush, and then swirl my brush around in it. I think this was less than R30 from MRP Home, and it works like a charm.
I also sometimes use those plastic shower hair brushes (in the top picture), for denser brushes, such as some of my stippling brushes. I find that the plastic bristles help to dislodge all the gunk, and because the bristles are longer, they can get further up the brush. You can find the plastic brushes at Clicks or Dischem. The one I use is from Dischem.
And there you have it, an affordable and efficient way to clean your brushes!
