Always having used baby shampoo to clean my brushes, I was a bit sceptical of the cleansing abilities of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap, after all it is just soap, how could it be any better at getting my brushes clean? When I saw it in the ASOS sale for under £4, I thought I may as well see what all the fuss was about. I got the Citrus Orange scent, but this comes in a range of different scents including almond, lavender and green tea.
It is a liquid soap, so much thinner than your average shampoo and gets to work straight away. In a matter of seconds, my brushes are squeaky clean and literally every scrap of dirt is removed, It made such lightwork of a usually laborious task, I am converted! This is totally worth the hype and as you only need a tiny bit, I can see this bottle lasting forever. I literally pop a small amount in the palm of my hand, swish the brush around with a bit of warm water and repeat until clean. I then lay my brushes horizontal on a tissue to ensure the excess water does not get into the head of the brush which can rot the glue and cause the hairs to fall out!
I try to wash my brushes every week, however if I need to spot clean my brushes in between, Mac Brush Cleanser (£10) is the best. I simply pop some on a tissue and wipe my brush in it until clean. The brush dries really quickly after using this, so you can use the brush again almost immediately!
