My brushes didn't look that bad so it didn't seem urgent to do it. Since I hadn't cleaned them 'in awhile' I decided to do so this weekend.
Let's look at them before their bath...
Not too bad, right?
I usually wash them and rinse them individually, but this time I soaked them in soapy water to see the real dirt in them...
WOW, that's pretty bad!
Then I washed them the way I usually do and rinse them under running water.
(Note: I always put brushes facing down so the bristles don't open up)
Then I pressed them with paper towel to get the excess of water and lie them down on a clean paper towel to air dry...
And here are my clean brushes!
Much, much better!!
I can now use them safely. Not just makeup free, but also free of germs!
How often do you wash your brushes? Do you have a favorite product you use? I personally like Brush Conditioning Shampoo from Bare Minerals. I know there are a lot of brush-shampoo out there, which one do you like?
Hope you have a great week!
