I am a self-proclaimed make up junkie.
I love everything about it, buying it, using it and talking about it! If there is one thing I don’t love is brush cleaning 😂😂😂😂😂
So last week Detective Shamiela did an extensive post around brush cleaning. Click here if you missed it.
Today I will be doing a review on the amazing new solid brush cleaner by Pink Cosmetics.
It comes in a 100g tub with two variants to choose from. The 97% natural ingredient Pink Peonie fragranced one and the 100% natural ingredients Lemongrass/Mint essential oils. You use next to nothing per washing session. I wash my brushes once a week so I rate it should last me approximately 3 months before I would need to repurchase which you can be sure I will be doing.
My usual routine consisted of Johnsons baby shampoo and my brush egg. It was a tedious exercise and something I dreaded doing on a Sunday afternoon. It got so bad that I decided to outsource it to my daughter, she didn’t mind because it meant some money in her pocket.
I ordered some goodies from Janet (Pink Cosmetics) and she sent me the solid brush cleaner (R150) to test.
It took me a while to get around to using it and I regret every minute of not trying it sooner.
It is really a wonderful product. It conserves water and it’s simple to use as well.
All you do is: wet the brush cleaner, (the beautiful soap flower dissolves once used, it doesn’t go right through- which makes me sad because it’s so beautiful) wet your brush bristles, swirl it around in the soap and rinse the bristles…I’m a sucker for a pattern so I swirl the brush around 10 times 😂😂😂😂
Once you are done you simply rinse the brush cleaner to get rid of all the makeup residue left behind and leave it upside down with lid removed to prevent it from becoming soggy.
Once I did my foundation brush, I was hooked! It took off all traces of foundation (and between you and me, this is the bane of the whole exercise) my brush looked as if I just bought it. I called everyone to come look 😂😂 my hubby, my daughter, almal wat daar was het ek geroep. So as I continued with my brushes I just got more and more happy and then I came to my oval foudation brush…
Although it wasn’t completely clean the first time, I swirled it in the tub again and rubbed it up against my brush egg and clean it was! I normally have to spend atleast 10 – 15 mins on this brush alone.It even cleans blenders in a jiffy.
The Pink Cosmetics solid brush cleaner is a 2 in 1 cleaner made of soothing cocoa butter & olive oil to condition gently as it rapidly breaks down excess residue. So it cuts out the extra step of conditioning your brushes afterwards. It is lightly scented. Pink cosmetics products are free of Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates and Petroleum.
My daughter has been begging to wash my brushes ever since I got this baby, although I’m not ready to hand over the reigns just yet, I’m going to let her do it for me again.
This is not only a great product for personal use but also an amazing products for MUA’s as it cuts down your cleaning time by more than half.
Well done Janet on creating an outstanding product!
Peace and love
