Your Brushes Have Never Been This Clean

Cleaning your brushes should be an activity that you regularly (and reluctantly) undertake, considering the amount of gross bacteria that builds up on them.

But do you ever struggle to get them completely clean? Or you end up with foundation splatters all over your bathroom? Well, I’m about to school you on how you can bring your brushes basically back to brand new.

★★★★★ Cleans really well - Britnee

"This has no scent and cleans brushes really well. I put a small amount in a small metal bowl, swirl the tip of my brush in it, then wipe the brush head off on a paper towel or napkin. I repeat until there is no colour coming off. The brush dries and is ready to use instantly. Great for switching up colours and small cleanses between deep cleanses."

"The only way to clean a foundation brush! I have tried all kinds of brush cleaners, and a little of my facewash on this gets the job done! My brush feels super soft and clean, just like new. It is still gentle enough that it doesn't damage the brush at all either."
