I’m going to hold my hands up and say that I am god damn awful at washing my make-up brushes. I do not do it anywhere near as often as I should and there’s probably so much make-up caked on them and I dread to even think about bacteria *shudders*
I knew I needed to start changing that and although I still don’t do it as much as I should i’m starting to get a bit of a routine (either that or it’s time to buy some new brushes!) But recently I bought the Real Techniques Cleansing Gel and it’s changing my routine.
I actually bought the gel before I even owned some of their brushes – fortunately I have rectified this now – and it has pushed me to clean my brushes more. The first thing I do is soak my brushes in water and then use a little bit of the cleansing gel on my little brush mitt which I bought from Ebay. The mitt makes cleaning my brushes so much easier as it gets between the bristles and I noticeably see a lot more product come off than I ever used to.
I bought the small mitt for 99p on Ebay to give it a try and might have to invest in a larger one as it makes it so much easier to clean. I also need to invest in a stand to let them dry in as that is my main issue, I tend to lay my brushes out on a towel to dry but inevitably some of them dry a little misshapen.
