We must keep our makeup brushes clean. Dirty brushes cause issues on our skin. Instant makeup cleaning sprays are all over the market to make cleaning easier, but once or twice a week, a good cleanse is needed. Cleaning mats are ‘in’ right now and I picked up one from Essence. Today’s review is all about Essence I Love My Brushes Cleansing Tool. Read on to know more.
In combination with the I love my brushes cleansing gel; it forms the ultimate duo for keeping your favorite brushes clean! here’s how easy it is: apply a drop of the cleansing gel and a little water on the cleansing tool, and then dip the brush in with circular movements to remove stubborn make-up residues. The nubs of the cleansing tool thoroughly clean the brush and remove any make-up or dirt. Clean tools provide the basis for a flawless complexion.
My Experience with Essence I Love My Brushes Cleansing Tool:
The cleansing tool comes in a sachet-like packaging. There is some information on the cardboard package that is present. The cleansing tool comes as an orange-beige colored silicone mat. The size is perfect for cleansing. The handle on the edge can be used to hang on the hook. There is a grip that can be used to place it in the sink and this prevents any slip with water and soap.
There are a lot of dots of different shape on the mat. They are sturdy enough and don’t break while cleaning. Using the mat is pretty easy. You can use the cleansing gel on the mat and then rub the brush onto it or you can put a dollop of gel on the brush then rub onto the mat.
You need to move the brush in a circular motion and with the different designs of the dots; it removes the makeup residue from the brush very well. The product completely removes the dirt and residue from the brush and makes it squeaky clean and it is way better than using just the gel and brush. The mat is pretty cheap and is a good way to clean the brush.
With a certain brush, it did pull out one or two bristles from the brush. Once dried, the brushes do not lose shape. You can easily dry them post the cleansing. The mat helps in deep cleaning the brush and is a great way to keep the brush clean. You can use all kinds of brushes and it doesn’t pose any problem. For now, I have no problems with the mat.
So, summing up.
