Do you hate cleaning your brushes? Me too! But I have a new weapon against dirty hard to clean makeup brushes!
I picked this up at The London Brush Company’s booth at The Makeup Show NYC. I was excited to try this on my hard to clean brushes. Well actually my brushes aren’t hard to clean it just seems to take forever. The directions can’t be simpler. You wet your brush (with water) and then swish it around on the solid soap in the tub. You then can swish your brush in between your fingers and rinse with water and the eyeshadow, foundation, or even concealer comes right out of the brush. The last step is putting the rinsed brushes on a paper towel and letting them dry. It’s as simple as that. I can’t tell you what a time saver this is. I’ve used it several times and I’m amazed. My brushes come out sparkling and clean!
The shampoo is amazingly effective. It gets the makeup that clings to the brush right out. The real test was on my foundation and concealer brushes. Those in my opinion are the hardest brushes to clean especially concealer. The concealers I use are so hard to get out and in the past I have had to wash (with cleaner) my brushes 2 or even 3 times with brush shampoo. My concealer brushes washed cleanly after one pass of this cleaner. It’s good stuff!
I paid $12 for the tub that I got which was discounted and I’m kicking myself already for not getting more. There are a few scents available. I picked up the Lavender and it smells great. Now here is where things get difficult. This isn’t on The London Brush Company’s website. I wrote to them and asked how to get more shampoo. It’s going to be available at The Makeup Show Chicago (booth# 1006) but no details on when we can order this on the website since they are redoing it. The shampoo will retail for $20 a tub and I think its going to last for several months so I’m ok with that. The London Brush Company has Twitter (click here to follow them) and Facebook so I’m going to follow them on both to see when this is going to be available online because I need MORE! I thought about saving this review for later but I wanted to let you know so you can watch out for this or something like it.
