You Need To Know About The StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner
No matter how much I know it vital for me to clean my makeup brushes regularly, often the thought of spending an hour or two bent over the bathroom sink washing away the build-up of product and grime leaves me reeling. It’s possibly my most loathed task (behind loading the dishwasher and cleaning the shower,) because it’s so time consuming and messy; I inevitably end up covering my bathroom in flecks of orange water and dry out my hands beyond recognition in the process, so it’s not a job I can say I enjoy – even if I know it HAS to be done.
But why do you need to clean your makeup brushes, I hear you ask? Keeping your makeup tools in tip top condition ensures makeup application is flawless every time (by removing product build up that prevents smooth and effortless application,) as well as helping to avoid troublesome breakouts and irritation. Every time you apply your favourite products, you transfer not only pigment from the brush to skin, but bacteria that breeds within these cosy warm environments. One of the biggest causes of problem skin is dirty tools, so cleaning your brushes regularly will help to minimise the risk of unnecessary pimples or redness while helping to create the look you desire.
Even though the majority of us know the importance of cleaning our makeup brushes, many of us aren’t doing it anywhere near as regularly as we should be; every time I give my tools a thorough cleanse I get so much more from them, and the products I’m using, but putting aside a few hours to get the job can often be something I put off. Too many beauty enthusiasts are still bumbling along with dirty brushes and sponges, because it’s such an effort, but I may have found the ultimate solution to turn your makeup brush cleaning session from a chore into a pleasure – while saving you so much time in the process.
The StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner & Dryer takes a task we all loathe and turns it into an easy, fast, effective and super hygenic way to keep your makeup tools clean. It may have been available for a few years already (and I remember sending the inventor Tom Pellereau, winner of The Apprentice, my dirty brushes while it was in development!) but I only managed to get my hands on one at Olympia Beauty – after the demo was enough to find me waving my credit card in the air and shouting ‘I want one!’
So how does the StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner & Dryer work? It’s super simple to use and involves only three things: a circular bowl, an electronic brush rotator and a rubber ferrule. You simply fill the little circular bowl with a little warm water and a splash of your chosen cleanser (either specialist brush shampoo or basic soap is fine, depending on how much you use your brushes and how expensive they are!) before attaching your chosen brush to the rotating unit with the appropriate sized rubber ferrule. With multiple sizes to choose from, there’s the perfect fitting for practically every brush within my collection; the only brushes I struggled with were the tapered handles, but everything else fit super snugly into the rubber holder.
Once in place, you dip a little of the brush into the water and turn the gadget on; leave it for around a minute or two (depending on the size and how dirty it is) to thoroughly cleanse, before lifting it out of the water and letting it spin to dry. It’s that simple! Although if you have a lot of brushes it can take a while, it’s far less laborious than manually washing each brush and then leaving it to dry on a towel or tissue – and far more hygenic too.
There’s no need to cover your entire kitchen worktop in towels or kitchen roll so your vast collection can dry overnight; there’s no need to re-use that dirty tool just one more time, as they can be clean and dry within a matter of seconds; there’s no need to keep putting the cleaning process off, because it’s actually quite fun to do.
Honestly, I feel like this is the best purchase I’ve made in a long time and probably the one I’m going to get the most out of in the future too; if you hate cleaning your makeup brushes as much as me, are known to put the need off for months on end or simply want to clean each and every brush after every use (which is what we all should be doing really, but who has the time!) then this is definitely the gadget for you.
Put simply, buy one. Buy one now!
