An anti-bacterial brush cleanser for thorough cleaning in-between makeup applications. Disinfects brushes to provide a fresh and clean application every time. Washes away traces of dirt, makeup, oil and debris from your brush while conditioning the hair to provide a clean and soft application for every use.
Directions – Cleanse brush regularly by massaging a small amount of the shampoo with water and working it through the bristle from the base of the brush outward.Rinse thoroughly and gently squeeze out excess water. Reshape the bristles and lay flat on a clean cloth to fully dry before next use.
I’ve been using this product for a while now but somehow never got around to posting about it. Anyways, better late than never. I have always used baby shampoo for cleaning my makeup brushes but picked up the elf brush shampoo from Target just to see if it worked any better. If used according to the directions, it doesn’t lather up well so I just pour a little in a small container filled with water and then dip and scrub the dirty makeup brushes in the foamy solution.
It does a good job cleaning my eyeshadow brushes (moderately dirty) but I find that it doesn’t clean my powder and foundation brushes thoroughly and needs several repeated washes to remove all traces of makeup. The same goes for the blush brush that I have to wash twice sometimes even if it isn’t so dirty. So, this is definitely not a heavy duty brush cleanser and the results are no better than the baby shampoo I had been using. On the plus side, this brush shampoo is not drying and leaves both synthetic and natural hair brushes nice and soft.
For the price ($3), elf brush shampoo wasn’t a bad purchase but most probably I would not pick it up again. It’s a decent product for a quick clean but not so effective when your brushes need thorough cleansing.
Have you tried elf brush shampoo? What do you think?
