My makeup brushes are dirty.
I’m not proud of this fact, I’m just lazy. I hate having to take time to clean my 15 brushes and scrub each individual bristle, then lay them out to dry them for forever, and… okay, I’m being dramatic. But I don’t like it. Plus, my fingers prune quickly, and it’s uncomfortable.
I’ve always thought, as I scrub gently, there has to be some sort of makeup brush cleaner to do this.
And it turns out, I was right! There are plenty of makeup brush cleaning machines, some that are washing machines, and some that even dry. But there are so many machines out there, I was overwhelmed.
Then I found a makeup brush cleaner on Amazon. One with 4.3 stars. With more than 7,000 five-star reviews raving about it. And costs less than $20. I knew I’d cracked the makeup brush washing code.
It felt like a secret I shared with 10,000 people. An affordable, effective makeup brush cleaner that did all I needed, and it dried.
RICRIS’ Premium Makeup Brush Cleaner is electronic, making the effort you put into washing your makeup brushes dissipate. Here’s how it works:
Fill the base bowl with water and liquid soap.
Fit the brush into one of the eight collars. The collars are almost 100% universal, fitting almost every brush into one slot.
Dunk the brush in the liquid for 10 seconds.
Pull up the brush, hit the on button, and watch it wash away all the built-up grime, oil, and make-up.
Dump out the first liquid and fill the bowl with clean water. Manually dunk the brush in it for 10 seconds.
Pull up and spin for five seconds, and your brush is dry!
Voila. That’s literally it. No pruning fingers, no laying out to dry. You push a button for about 30 seconds and you’re done.
Hard to believe it cleans everything, right? I was skeptical too. But it’s 98% effective at working out the build-up you collect in those bristles.
Here are some five-star reviews to convince you to try it out:
“Brushes came out perfectly clean and ready for use. Great price for the time and manual labor saved!”
“It cleaned my brushes perfectly considering I use my brushes for body paint. If you’re thinking about it, get it.”
“I tried it on some of my worst brushes first. It cleaned them very well AND dried them all within 20 seconds! I had a field day and started cleaning all my brushes for fun.”
“I washed about 20 or so brushes. The best part is that they seriously dry in 10 seconds. You won’t believe it until you try it!!! Stop staring at this already and just take the plunge. You absolutely will not regret it!!!!!”
So, as someone who needs to speed up everything in her life, you can bet that I’ll be using this all the time. In fact, I may just have so much fun, I use it every day. Who’s to say? Efficiency is important, after all.
