A Budget Solution to On-the-Spot Brush Cleansing

In an ideal world we would all have the time to stop and deep cleanse our entire brush collection on a weekly basis but we all know life doesn't work that way. Sometimes I am lucky if I get to use a foundation brush, let alone stand at the sink and scrub the remains of half a bottle of Double Wear off the bristles of a cat-chewed make-up brush (I paint - geddit?- quite the picture don't I?). The solution or perhaps comprise? On the spot cleansing, the make-up equivalent of dry shampoo - a way to half resolve a problem before really rolling up your sleeves at the weekend, or y'know jumping into the shower. In the past instant brush cleansing options have been not only minimal but also expensive, answering all our lazy girl and boy prayers is the Make Up Revolution Pro Hygiene Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner.

First things first, how do you use an on-the-spot brush cleanser? It is a lot easier than it sounds, basically you take your cleansing spray be it the Revolution Pro Hygiene Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner, or anything similar, mist onto the brushes and gently swipe the make-up off using tissue, then leave the brush to fully dry (less than an hour in my experience). Admittedly such method won't remove every trace of make-up but it is a quick and easy way to keep germs at bay and of course re-freshen your tools. Personally I tend to use the on-the-spot brush cleansing method when travelling, that way I don't need to pack endless brushes and of course don't need to spend a good hour or so, hunched over the hotel sink, uttering a prayer to the make-up God's that they will be dry and ready for use the next day.

The Revolution Pro Hygiene Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner has been formulated to be both deep cleansing but also to disinfect and sterilise any beauty tool and surface - it can also be used on the hands. It doesn't have an overly chemical nor harsh fragrance nor will it irritate the skin, not that you will spray it onto complexion but as it is good to know none the less. As a matter of fact, for those with acne prone skin types you may find that regularly misting your brushes with Make Up Revolution Pro Hygiene Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner even after a deep cleanse, will help prevent bacteria from breeding and in turn stop blemishes from appearing. Pretty clever huh?

The Make Up Revolution Pro Hygiene Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner is as good as any other on-the-spot brush cleanser I have used but offers the added bonus of sterilisation without drying out or damaging, delicate brush bristles. At just £5 this is the nifty little spray that everyone should add to their make-up kit - pro or not.
