Ah, the task of cleaning makeup brushes... some love it because it falls under the category of "quiet time" and there are those who hate it because it makes their back ache. Whichever camp you belong to, we all know it's something we cannot, must not, skip lest we end up with acne or some other form of bacterial infection.
I belong to the latter group, especially after working on a fashion show - I'm tired, my feet hurt, I still need to sanitize my makeup and wash all those brushes! In the past, I used the Beauty Blender Cleanser because it easily removed any product from my brushes. However, it took a long time to rinse.
I kept hearing people from various makeup artist circles sing praises about Clean. And I'm all for anything that makes washing brushes easier.
The process is simple:
1. Wet the brush or sponge well.
2. Wet the tub of clean a bit.
3. Swoosh the brush or sponge around the tub.
4. Optional: if washing a bigger and dense brush, you may need to massage it a bit to get the shampoo into the bristles.
Although the process may be typical of other cleansers, the beauty of Clean is that is rinses off so easily. In fact, using this product has cut my brush cleaning time in half... on a good day, a third of my usual time.
I also noticed that my brushes seem softer (I no longer need to condition) and it dries faster. I can see myself bringing Clean to jobs that require me to stay the entire day - I can wash my smaller brushes during down time and have them dry by the time I need to pack up my kit.
Here's a demo on how to use Clean, courtesy of Sonia Roselli (Glossible.com) and Rachel Lisa. It also answers the question how many brushes a tub of Clean can wash.
There are three regular scents as of now - Unscented, Lavender and Lemon. Limited edition scents such as Rose and Vanilla were also released in the past.
Do you need this in your life? Most definitely. You're most welcome :)
