Real Techniques Cleansing Palette
Cleaning brushes is one of the least favourite parts of my make-up routine. Finding something that makes it that little bit easier – and quicker – is always welcome. I recently picked up the Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette and think it is a fantastic little tool for helping me to deep clean my brushes quickly and effortlessly.
This article builds upon Part Three of ‘the All About Brushes’ series to explain how to clean your make-up brushes using these products. Brush cleanser, baby shampoo and make-up anti-bacterial spray are all effective products for keeping your brushes fresh, clean and ready for make-up application. Washing your make-up brushes regularly (at least every one or two weeks) makes for good hygiene, prevents product build-up, maintains the bristles and ensures effective application of make-up.

This article aims to introduce you to some products for cleaning make-up brushes. Cleaning make-up brushes is perhaps not the most exciting of activities – there is always something more fun to do! However, cleaning your brushes regularly helps to ensure that they are sanitary and do not gather germs which are then transferred to the face, eyes or lips. Product particles (whether powder, gel or cream) can also become gathered in the bristles over time, making brushes apply make-up less effectively.
