I’m a self confessed hoarder.
Anyone in my family, my boyfriend, and even my dog would tell you this (if he could talk).
Because of this, I have an extensive makeup brush collection, which has slowly grown over the years since I first got into makeup.
I have always tried to designate a day to washing my brushes in the week, and recently I’ve been on the lookout for a makeup brush cleanser that’s cruelty free, washes brushes well and doesn’t cost half my wage.
It’s a lot harder than I thought it would be – which is why you’re in luck if you’re reading this; I’ve done all the hard bit for you, and all you have to do is go out and grab one!
During my trials, I tried a lot of cleansers – both liquid and solid – and I found I preferred a solid every time; they’re just more convenient and easier to work with. However, even when I found products I loved, they were just too expensive to keep replacing when you’re washing 30+ brushes regularly (I’ll let you do the math).
A couple of months down the line, it came to brush washing day and I had run out of everything I had tried; I was in a dilemma of what to use to substitute until payday so I could afford to shell out another £20+ on something that would last just over a month.
I love a solid cleanser, so the only thing I had that was remotely similar to hand was my Lush Solid Shampoo bar.
I was sceptical at first, but now I am actually fully converted to the Lush way of life! These babies will set you back just £6.50, plus they last around 4 full uses in my house!
You can also buy a tin to keep them in pretty cheap, which will serve you well to minimise mess.
If you add to this the fact that you can pick a new scent every time you need a new bar; you can consider me sold!
