I don’t know how many brushes I have. I haven’t counted in a while but I can tell you it’s somewhere between 1 and 100. I use every single one of them though and the only time I wish I had less of them is when it’s time to clean them. I also like using a beautyblender, especially on clients, and you simply must wash it after each use. No if’s, and’s or booty butts.
I used to be fine with the baby shampoo brush cleaning method, and even posted about it. It still works great and gets the job done. However, as a good beauty blogger does, I’m always trying new things. I bought the beautyblender Solid Cleanser and loved swiping my makeup brushes across the surface to clean them with it too. But that little dude is $16 and I’m not all about that life.
So I read the ingredients on the solid cleanser and realized it was basically just a very mild soap. Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soaps fit the bill and they are far more affordable for way more product-around $5 for 5 oz. compared to $16 for 1 oz. of the Solid Cleanser! Plus, you can switch it up with different scents. My favorites are Lavender and Almond.
So I made you a little video to show you how I used these “magic soaps” to clean my infinity and one makeup brushes and beautyblender sponges. I also got some olive oil soaps from a company called LATHER that are also perfect for brush and beautyblender cleanings. Good smells. Must have all the smellzzz.
Oh hey, if you want a really good laugh, ask my husband if he thinks I need more makeup brushes. Also, ask him how much he loves it when I wash them in the guest bathroom sink and don’t clean it out afterwards. Because he’s definitely really into that too. What can I say-I’m a lot to live with.
Thanks so much for reading and for voting for me in the Allure Beauty Blogger Awards. I made it to challenge 2, the Revlon Makeover Challenge, and it was so fun. If you love yourself a makeover, definitely go check it out!
