Bobbi Brown – Conditioning Brush Cleanser
This post may contain affiliate links.
I am a massive fan of Bobbi Brown products and I love the fact that they often have online offers for free delivery or free gifts when you spend over a certain amount. I purchased this Conditioning Brush Cleanser a while ago to bump up my order total so that I could receive a free gift. This isn’t the sort of product I would have bought otherwise as I have usually just used a little bit of liquid soap to wash my make-up brushes. So, is it worth spending extra on a product designed to help clean your brushes?
Conditioning Brush Cleanser is a clear liquid soap, with little fragrance, packaged inside a signature Bobbi Brown black tube. Rinse your make-up brush with warm water, then squirt a little of the product into your hand and rub the brush gently over your hand massaging the brush hairs in little circles to remove all of the powder and dirt. You should be careful not to get the brush hairs tangled or too squashed. Once you are happy that all of the powder and dirt has been removed from the brush give it a good rinse with warm water. You will be able to see the old powder and dirt being rinsed away down the plughole. In my experience each brush just needs one wash to get it totally clean. You can also use Bobbi Brown Conditioning Brush Cleanser to clean powder puffs, although I have found that they may need a couple of washes to remove any tightly ingrained powder.
Once you have washed all of your brushes place them on a piece of tissue paper with the brush ends sticking over the edge of a cupboard or windowsill to allow air to get to them, as per the image below. 24 hours should be long enough to allow the brushes to be fully dry. I have found that Bobbi Brown Conditioning Brush Cleanser leaves my make-up brushes feeling clean and soft.
The image above shows my precious collection of Bobbi Brown brushes – I will publish a full review on these soon! It is so important to invest in good quality make-up brushes and look after them, I recommend you wash your brushes and accessories at least once a month in order to get rid of the old make-up that is held inside them harbouring dirt and germs. Cheap make-up brushes can seem like good value at the time, but they can be harsh and scratchy on the face and hairs will quickly fall out of them – who wants bald make-up brushes?
It’s also a good idea to keep other make-up accessories clean – wipe mirrors with a soft duster and wipe pencil sharpeners and eyelash curlers with cotton wool dipped in make-up remover (try Clarins Gentle Eye Make Up Remover). You can also stick fabric make-up bags in the washing machine to get them really clean, or give waterproof ones a good wipe with a soapy damp cloth.
This Conditioning Brush Cleanser from Bobbi Brown definitely works, leaving brushes clean and soft. It’s not an essential beauty product though, so only buy it if you can afford it as a luxury. It would make a great inexpensive gift for someone who you don’t think would splash out on buying it for themselves.
Conditioning Brush Cleanser is priced at £10.50 for 100ml and is available from Bobbi Brown.
