I prepared a hand towel on the side to put my freshly cleaned brushes to reduce the amount of water and dampness in the bathroom. I also got out my trusty makeup cleaning egg which helps remove makeup out of brushes easier. Lastly not forgetting the cleansing gel and a spare 30 minutes, yep cleaning brushes can be time-consuming.
I like to wash my brushes separately too so I can make sure they are completely clean and get my full attention.
1. It says to apply the cleansing gel first but for me, it falls off as soon as I apply water so I like to wet the brush beforehand. I apply an almond amount to every brush.. so at least 40 plus almond size squeezes every time.
2. I swirl my brushes under the warm water on my cleansing egg.
3. I tap the excess water on the side of the sink before placing the washed brush on the hand towel and repeat the process with the rest of the brushes.
pin me for later?
Where do I start with this? I really had high hopes for this brush cleanser because I love the real techniques brushes but this for me was a major flop in my opinion. Getting the right amount of product was a blooding mission in itself and you could easily get way too much accidentally.
It doesn’t foam much as at all and takes a lot of elbow grease (ffs) to actually clean the brushes with this cleansing gel, you need way more than you think till the brushes are clean. Some makeup was extremely hard to remove with this including eyebrow pomades, eyeliner gel and any eyeshadow that is like a foil.
For the money, it is rather expensive for the amount you get. I have used other brush cleaners that were cheaper that worked better which is a shame for this because as I said I just love the brand in general.
Have you tried the real techniques brush cleansing gel?
