    The best brush cleaning kit I have found so far, I highly recommend! Trying out a new brush cleaning brand and my brush cleaning routine. This is my The Pro Hygiene Collection collection and how I clean my makeup brushes. You should clean your makeup brushes as often as you can, to help reduce bacteria and damage to your skin.

    THE PROCESS

    I start of by rinsing and wetting my brushes under warm water in the sink until the brush end is completed wet, I then sprayed some of the Antibacterial Makeup Spray over the brush end to soak them. I then put some of the Makeup Brush Cleaner over the brush end, about a 10 pence size and swirl the brush around the Brush Egg (which you can buy from eBay) under warm-ish running water until I can see all the makeup disappear from the brush.
    I do this about 2 times depending on how much makeup is on the brush and make sure they are all completely clean as I can get them. And then rinse the brush under the warm water again. To make sure that all the cleaning soap has been washed out and squeezed the water out. Then I’ve reshaped the brushes. Then I swirled the brushes around on a bath towel to dry them properly and deep down into the bristles. And then I left them to dry on a kitchen paper towel overnight. Until they were dry and ready to use. I completely forgot to take a before and after picture of the brushes.
    But you can certainly guess what they would have looked like. The foundation buffing brush could probably do with another wash. As it was so clogged with make up as I use it everyday. So it’s still slightly dirty but it definitely feels softer and somewhat cleaner than it was before. I have definitely noticed a difference in my brushes from before and after. They are much cleaner, feel soft again like they are new. And don’t smell of that horrible makeup smell.

    THE PRO HYGIENE COLLECTION COMPANY

    I found out about The Pro Hygiene Company. Because they found me on Twitter, followed and sent me a direct message. I decided I would check them out as I was interested in what their products are, and found they are makeup brush care company who sell brush cleaning products and tools and their claim/selling point is that their products kill 99.99% bacteria within 60 seconds of application without affecting the products performance.

    THE BRUSH EGG

    I have been on the search for a good brush cleaning tool and I have heard everyone raving about the Sigma Brush Cleaning Glove but when I saw the price I thought NO – I’m going to shop around and find a dupe alternative and came across the Brush Egg on eBay and it was only £2.75  and came in a variety of colours.
    The egg is made from silicone rubber so it’s easy to clean and it’s really sturdy. It has a hole in one end big enough to fit two of your fingers in and hold it in your hand and two styles of groves – long vertical ones and small circle shaped ones designed for different brush types.

    “The Brush Egg is used to help with the deep cleaning process of makeup brushes. The Brush Egg is compact, quick, easy, affordable and effective. Reduces the use of brush cleaning solution (which dries out the bristles) Use whichever soap or shampoo you choose. The smaller knobs on top are used for foaming & lathering.

    Grooves on the bottom are used to agitate the bristles just enough to release product, dirt and oils without stripping them. The smaller knobs are also ideal for smaller eye brushes (fan, liner, smudge, pencil) for extra gentle lathering and releasing of dried products.”
