This is just a quick post about the M.A.C Brush Cleanser. It's about £9.50 from most good counters and department stores, such as Debenhams - link, for a 235ml bottle.
I try to wash my brushes every week or two, especially for liquid foundation and concealer, because it's hygienic and also because the build up of make-up can sometimes effect the structure and hence effectiveness of a brush. And a painter is as only as good as her tools... or so they say.
You basically just rinse your brushes, rub this product through, then rinse off thoroughly, or until your happy with the cleanliness of your best brushes. You then just lay out to dry naturally and Voila; perfectly fresh and conditioned, ready for your next look. This prevents shedding, and is super gentle on the brush hairs themselves.
It also smells nice and 'clean', and not at all chemically or harsh, which I would find intimidating and frankly a little scary.
I basically love this product and highly recommend for those of you looking to invest in a Spring clean for your brushes. Imagine Johnson's body wash, for your brushes... no tears and no fuss.
Happy cleaning Girls!
Love, Lauren xx
