How To Clean Your MakeUp Brushes

 

cleanbrush

Hi everyone!

Today I want to show you a new product that I have just discovered. It is not only a wonderful house cleaning product but also 100% green and works amazingly when it comes to cleaning your makeup brushes.

It is so important to keep your brushes clean and sanitized. It helps your brushes last longer (especially the expensive ones) and helps you avoid skin problems that are caused when you don’t clean your brushes properly. Because I had to deal with acne for almost 14 years, making sure my brushes are always clean and sanitized is super important for me to keep my face clean and stay away from clogged pores and breakouts. I am also super picky when it comes to the ingredients inside the products. I remember purchasing a brush cleaning solution once and after I cleaned my brushes with it, my face went through hell. I started to break out so much on my cheeks and chins and it took me a few months to clear everything out. Given the fact that I did not use any different products on my skin but the solution, I started to look out for a cleaning solution that has absolutely no chemicals in it.

I recently found out that a multi purpose cleaner that I have at home is all natural. The brand is called Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate. Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate is made from natural oils and is enriched with skin conditioners. Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate is an environmentally friendly cleaning solution with biodegradable, nontoxic, phosphate-free, and plant-based surfactants and essential oils. It is even better than baby shampoo from other brands out there so I gave it a try and the results have been pretty impressive. The essential oils in this cleaning solution are so great that they act as a conditioner to the brushes so I can skip a step of conditioning my brush with olive oil. Yay! More time to put on make up!

Step 1: Pour a small cap of Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate into a bowl of water

Step 2: Swirl the brush into the mixture gently. You can see that I don’t have to do much work to get the makeup off the brush. The Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate mixture does a great job at removing the makeup even before I have to swirl the brush.

Step 3: Use a soft cloth or paper towel to dry the brushes, again, very gently

Step 4: Air dry the brushes

I recently purchased this amazing rack for my brushes from AliExpress for an amazing price of ($2 USD) and it comes really handy when you have quite a lot of brushes like me. It’s so convenient to bring on a trip because you can easily dissemble the rack and it will fit perfectly in your luggage.

And…that is it! Cleaning your brushes does not take that much time and effort at all if you know what are the right tools and products to use.

If you can’t find Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate in the country where you live, look for a cleaning product that has 100% natural ingredients to ensure that you can keep your brushes clean and long lasting and not put back other unwanted chemicals onto your skin or having to go through skin problems like I did. Snap All-Purpose Natural Concentrate is also great when it comes to cleaning your house, dry walls, jewelries and even your vegetables. I highly recommend this product to those of you who are moms because you can clean your floor, your baby’s toys and not having to worry if they will get irritated or accidentally lick the chemicals that often comes with the household cleaning products out there. And yes, babies lick everything…my one year old nephew licks everything and anything that he sees,including the wall.

Have fun cleaning your brushes everyone and hope this post helps your brushes stay clean and brand new 🙂

January’s Beauty Haul

Happy New Year everyone!

Today, I would like to share with you my January’s Beauty Haul.

The first product that I absolutely love and can’t wait to share with you is the ROYAL SPA ULTRA III SHAMPOO (for chemical treated hair). If you are the type of person that loves to experience with different hairstyles and hair colours like me, this will definitely be your best friend at all time.

Apparently, this is one of the first 3-in-1 shampoo that really untangles chemically treated hair. It smells wonderfully and I love the fact that I could even skip the conditioning step and my hair still turns out like it was treated at the salon. A tip for those of you who hate to smell the oily, creasy smell in your hair after stepping out of a restaurant, I’ve noticed that when I wash my hair with this ROYAL SPA ULTRA III SHAMPOO, I never have that problems

This shampoo is packed with botanical extracts — Aloe vera, evening primrose, heather, jasmine and orchid. This is perfect for hair like mine, which sometimes dry and has to go through all the heat of hair styling tools everyday.  Ever since I found this shampoo, I am more confident to rock different hairstyles knowing that my hair will still look super soft and bouncy at the end of the day. It’s because the shampoo also contains a bunch of vitamin that benefits the growth and strength of your hair such as vitamins A, D, E, and pro-vitamins B5. Not to mention, the cute and environmental friendly package just adds another reason for me to love this shampoo.

Second product that I want to introduce you to this month is SHU UEMURA’s EYELASH CURLER. I have been using this product for years and to be honest, if you have typical Asian eye shape like me, this is the product that won’t disappoint you. Before finding out that there is an eyelash curler out there that designed specifically for Asian women, I was more than excited to get my hands on. Let me know if you would like to see a separate review on this product on my blog and if you would like to see if it is worth a try ($25).

The last product I want to show off for this month is my BRUSH CLEANER from SEPHORA . I have been searching for something small and does the dry clean job for my brushes since I always travel and I need something that is quick and easy. So I decided to give this a try and it has not disappointed me.

All you have to do is spray this on your brush and gently wipe off the unwanted product on a piece of paper tower. I found that this spray does not harden my brushes, cleans and dries in a quick minute.

I hope you find my share of information on these new beauty products useful. I will keep sharing with you my favourite products every month and hopefully, have time to stay consistent 🙂

What about you? What are the new products that you have tried recently? Please comment below and I would love to give them a try as well.

 

Have a great weekend!
