So, before, I posted my review on the Core Collection kit from Real Techniques and I thought I’d let you all know how I clean my make-up brushes. I was kindly sent these Silicone Make-Up Brush Cleaners from a lovely company called RUIMIO and they have made my life so much easier. I hate cleaning my brushes by hand and I always feel like they are not being cleaned properly or deeply enough, so I was really excited about trying these out.
The two-piece portable set comes in a small box and includes a gorgeous baby pink silicone make-up brush cleaner and a pretty mint green one. They are made with safe, non-toxic, non-porous silicone which is soft and springy and will keep its shape, rinse clean instantly and last you a lifetime. They both have handy hooks too, so you can hang them up to dry after using. The brushes work by cleaning accumulated makeup, oil, dirt and bacteria off of your makeup brushes and you only need to use a little soap or shampoo to clean them, which keeps them in tip-top condition, makes your make-up brushes last longer and prevents bacteria from spreading on the skin which causes pimples, blackheads and breakouts to appear on the face.
There are three different cleaning areas on the silicone brush cleaners: a grooved area for larger brushes, a cross-hatched area for shorter-bristle brushes and small nubs for your smallest brushes.
They are so easy to use and all you have to do is wet your brush under warm tap water, apply some shampoo or facial wash to the silicone cleaner and place two fingers inside and gently rub the brush bristles up and down and around against the grooved area, the cross-hatched area and the raised nubs. You can also hold it by hand instead of inserting your fingers. Then you just rinse the brush cleaner under the tap, pat your brush bristles dry with a paper towel and shape them while they’re wet and hang the brush cleaner up to dry.
I really love this little make-up brush cleaning set, the colours are pretty, they look so cute, they are hygienic, they work great at cleaning your brushes and they are super affordable too. What’s not to love?
