A Bar of Soap for yout MakeUp Brushes?

30 comments
Hey Lovelies,
The Masters Brush Cleaner
I'm so excited to bring you this post because I've discovered a new amazing product to clean my make up brushes with which I want to share with you guys! Like most people, I usually clean my make up brushes using baby shampoo or my trusted MAC brush cleanser (review). I've done a whole post on how I clean my brushes which you can read by clicking here. I've stayed pretty loyal to that routine but last weekend a lovely American blogger called Christa who has a YouTube channel called ChristasWorld recommended me the Masters Brush Cleaner while we were chatting on Twitter. This is actually a product artists use to clean and condition their paint brushes. I'd never heard of it and after a few google searches I was desperate to try it, so I went on Amazon and ordered it for the bargain price of £5.70.

The Masters Brush Cleaner
The Masters brush cleanser is designed for paint brushes but it was formulated with the help of a Cosmetics lab. It  is strong enough to remove oils, stains and varnishes from brushes but still really gentle as to not damage the soft and delicate bristles of paint brushes. 
The first thing I noticed about the Masters Brush cleanser was the scent. It has very light and zesty smell that's not too strong or chemical in any way, shape or form. The product in the pot feels a lot like a bar of soap. I used this for the first time on Saturday and dug out the dirtiest make up brush I could find. This turned out to be my mini MAC 129 which lives in my handbag. I often forget about this brush when I am doing my weekly make up brush clean. (Shame on me).
The Masters Brush Cleaner
The Masters Brush Cleaner is so simple to use and the instructions are printed on the back of the pot. You simply rinse your brush in warm water, swirl it around in the little pot till it works into a light lather. Rinse and repeat this process until your brush is clean. To deep clean brushes, the Masters recommend letting the brush set with the lather on it for a few minutes before rinsing the brush.
Even though the product looks, feels and smells like a bar of soap, it is nothing like a bar of soap. This does not lather up the way soap does, and was really easy to completely rinse out of my brush. It did not leave any residue on the bristles which baby shampoo often does. I am more than pleased to report that The Masters Brush Cleaner did an excellent job at cleaning my filthy make up brush. The bristles felt really soft afterwards and it really took no time at all to complete the process! My brush felt incredibly clean and soft afterwards and was as good as new!
I'm really pleased with The Masters Brush Cleaner and can't believe I had never heard of it before. I think the little pot will last me ages as well. I done a massive brush clean on the weekend and there is hardly a dent in it. This also works great on foundation and concealer brushes, even though I did find I had to use a tiny bit of olive oil first to dissolve the product before cleaning the brush.
I'm really pleased I bought this, thank you again Christa for recommending it!  Being a typical blogger, I find it a bit boring to always use the same products and I think it's great to mix things up every once in a while and discover great alternatives.The only thing I'm still waiting for is self-cleaning make up brushes!
You can buy The Masters Brush Cleaner from Amazon, and it is also available at many arts and crafts stores.

  4. This sounds lovely! I really like the vintage style packaging of the product. It looks so simple and easy to use, I'm always finding brushes I've forgotton to wash too, so this sounds perfect : ) I currently use Johnson's Baby Shampoo to wash my brushes, and it does seem to leave a sort of residue. Brilliant discovery : ) xxx

    1. I've never tried dish cleanser but I know Michelle Phan uses it too and it works great for her. For foundation brushes I'm a big fan of olive oil it get rid of the product really well and conditions the bristles xx
