When it comes to maintaining a great skin care regimen, one aspect you can't forget about is regular cleaning of your makeup brushes (if you're a makeup wearer, of course)! Trust me, your skin will pay a hefty price if you keep putting off a good brush cleaning session. I used to use a liquid brush cleaner for my brushes, but when solid makeup brush cleaners came on the scene...my interest was piqued! They looked so easy to use BUT the $20 price tag just wasn't for me. That's when I started looking at the ingredients in some of these solid makeup cleansers and realized that I could achieve the same effect with even better ingredients in the natural soaps sold by Shea Moisture!
DIY Solid Makeup Brush Cleaner
This was the EASIEST DIY EVER! All you need is a bar of Shea Moisture soap (I've tested both Lemongrass & Ginger, Olive & Green Tea shea butter soaps) and a travel soap dish (makes it easier to hold the soap while cleaning your brushes and then you have a solid makeup brush cleanser to go!). Let's just say that in the end, my brushes looked, felt and smelled AMAZING. My pockets are happy too as $6 for the soap & dish will last me quite a while when it comes to cleaning my makeup brushes! You can watch the video below to see how well it worked on my brushes.FYI: I've discovered that the Quirky Zen Cosmetics holder works great for storing your makeup brushes upright (just don't dry them upright or it could damage the bristle glue at the base!). It's great for keeping your brushes off of the counter when you're in the midst of doing your makeup. Love the creative design!
