Tool Kit: MAC Brush Cleanser

MAC Brush Cleanser - £9.50

It's really important to clean your makeup brushes regularly, simply because a lot of product and bacteria can settle in the fibres and that generally makes it difficult to get a good finish on the skin, not to mention can bring on an unwanted breakout. The MAC brush cleanser literally arrived on my doorstep this morning and I couldn't wait to get going with it! I use mainly Real Techniques brushes (which are brilliant and I'd recommend them until the cows come home) and also a couple of Bobbi Brown brushes, and I spent a quick 10 minutes giving them all a much-needed clean.

The product itself doesn't smell unpleasant, which is especially good considering it is basically a disinfectant. A couple of drops on kitchen paper towel or an old Muslin cloth is all you really need for each brush, then you simply move the brush in a circular motion to get rid of all the product - you'll be surprised how much makeup is left on the paper towel! Afterwards you let the brush air-dry, and you're ready to use them again within 5 minutes because the cleanser dries so quickly. This particular cleanser is designed to clean, disinfect and condition the brush fibres so your brushes end up lasting longer. £9.50 for 235ml is pretty good, I think. I know that with regular cleaning, the bottle will still keep for a long time - so worth the money in the long run.

Have you used MAC brush cleanser before? What do you use to clean your makeup brushes?
