I've been really lacking when it comes to shopping recently, so I decided after work one day I'd take myself around the shops. Low & behold I discovered Makeup Brush Cleansing Spray from 'Brush Techniques', I know I'm not the only person who dreads cleaning my brush collection and was eager to test out this 'quick & easy' method.
So I have used a few high end brush cleaners but have never found anything better than using Matrix Total Results Amplify Shampoo. This leaves the brushes extremely clean and soft to the touch. How-ev-er, this normally takes from 30 to 45 minutes, which is where this product comes in. This product is intended for weekly use on natural and synthetic make-up brushes, to use dampen the bristles on your brush with warm water, spray the Cleansing Spray directly into the bristles, then simply massage into a clean old towel or paper towel to remove excess makeup.
Although the intended instructions did work, i found it much better to leave the spray to soak in the bristles for 20 seconds, the massage through and rise under warm water. I managed to get around 30 brushes immaculate in 10 minutes!
Now wait for the best part, the price of this spray...£1. I am obsessed. I've considered fancy gadgets, i've probably spent around £150 testing out various high end cleansers and this £1 spray has been the best yet. For all you make-up addicts, I cannot recommend this enough!
I doubt it's possible, but if any of you know a product that can clean 30 brushes in 5 minutes or less, definitely let me know! I'm always hunting for some good brush cleaning tips.
I also wanted to let you know that I will now be posting Blogs every other Sunday but will still post weekly Video's.
Thanks for reading everyone.
See you in 2 weeks,
Yes, it's that time of the month again, though it's been a slow month for Cosmetic shopping I've been putting everything I've got into my skin care! Life has been so hectic it's nice to finally be able to sit and talk about the things I've been over indulging in this month. So here we go:
MAC PRO LONGWEAR FOUNDATION
Although I've been loving the MAC Studio Waterweight, I did go back to the Studio Fix, but again, caused me a dramatic breakout so decided to look for an alternative foundation that would hydrate my skin. Which is when i stumbled across the MAC Pro Longwear, though I'd heard of it before I hadn't realised this product controls the oil from your skin brilliantly whilst keeping a full-coverage, long lasting look.
PACO ROBANNE 1 MILLION SHOWER GEL
I actually stole this item from my boyfriends stash, I absolutely love the Lady Million perfume and the 1 Million after shave so I obviously had to try the shower gel. Well. This is my new best friend, I've been mixing it in with my bubble bath just for the smell! Though the only size bottle I can find is 150ml and lasts no time at all, means I need to buy 2 at a time just so I'm not constantly shopping for shower gel.
AVEENO DAILY MOISTURISING LOTION
If you've been here before, you know I love my skin care. Recently I've been trying so many new things, I was sent some brilliant Puriskin samples that I use daily (you can read about them here). But after the bath & before bed you cannot go wrong with Aveeno's Daily Moisturiser. If you're skin is feeling dry, cracked or even just a bit sensitive, this is definitely the product to use as it's known for it's natural, but effective soothing properties. One application and you're good for 24 hours.
That is pretty much it for everything I've been loving this month, if there's anything I'm missing out on, be sure to let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for reading,
See you next Sunday,
