Hello everyone, i hope your all having a fabulous weekend. Today i have a post that I've been meaning to do for a little while now, so i thought this would be great timing as lately all my posts have been about nails. A few weeks ago i got No7's makeup brush cleanser to make cleaning my brushes easier for me, as I've heard about lots of different things people like and dislike i felt a little confused as to what's best. I may just of been a bit of a fanny but i was a bit worried about ruining my brushes, so i thought this would be great as that's exactly what it's designed for.
As you can see from the bottom right photo my powder brush and my angled brush where mingin (ignore the black brush it's just a really cheep one i use at the moment for my blush). At first i just tried using this on it's own pouring a bit on a paper towel and rubbing the brush for a quick clean, but found when the brush was dry it still felt like there was some residue left and it felt slightly oily. However that may of been because i used to much or maybe i somehow didn't do it right I'm not entirely sure. So instead i used it when washing my brushes instead of any soap or shampoo, i simply ran the brush facing downwards under warm water, pumped some of the cleanser in the palm of my hand and gently swirled the brush in the cleanser which then made a nice lather. I then made sure i rinsed it all out and gently used a paper towel to get the majority of the water off and then left it flat to dry. I found using it as part of a deep clean really effective and easy and once dry my brushes didn't loose their shape and felt basically as good as new, and as you can see it brought them up lovely.
I will try again to do a quick clean and let you know if it was mine or the products fault, however even if i can't get on with it as a quick cleanser i am happy with the results using it as a deep clean. It's £8, which i know is a bit more pricey than baby shampoo or whatever else is out there but I'm personally going to stick to products made pacifically for cleaning brushes. I'm not so convinced that i will get it once I've used it all as other lines do brush cleaner such as MAC and they aren't that much more so i think i will try them next. That's not saying i don't like it, i think it does the job and No7 are extremely good for those who have really sensitive skin so if you like No7 than i really think you'd enjoy this.
All in all I'm not loving this yet but i am liking it, do i think it's worth the money...yes as the method i like to use it in, it does bring my brushes up lovely and is so quick and simple. What brush cleaner do you like to use? I hope you found this post helpful, sorry if it was a bit rambeley in places and i hope to see you all again soon.
