I believe bathing your beauty brushes often is super important. It will keep your face clear and extend the life of your brushes which are a big investment. I'm a huge fan of Bobbi Brown Brushes by the way. I had never found the right soap to use to clean them good until now. I finally picked up a bottle of Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap at Whole Foods out of curiosity. I see this stuff everywhere but wasn't quite sure what it did? I loved that it was all natural, all organic and the main ingredients (ethically sourced from the Fair Trade around the World program) were coconut, olive, palm, avocado and tee tree oils. Definitely worth a shot!
Well, this soap is nothing short of Magic, let me tell you. It's absolutely amazing! I purchased the Baby Mild because it is unscented and I have very sensitive skin. The first thing that came to mind were my makeup brushes. I've always heard baby shampoo was the best cleaner for brushes anyway. I mixed 1 drop with a little water in the palm of my hand and went to town on my brushes and WOW!
I have never been able to get my brushes this clean and I've had them for years! You can see from the photo they are super shiny and the bristles are softer than ever which makes for much better makeup application.
Dr. Bronner's Castile Liquid Soaps have been called the "swiss army knife" of cleansing-usable for just about any cleaning task. The simple, ecologically formulated soaps are gentle enough for washing body, face or hair, but also powerful enough for tasks like dishwashing, mopping, laundry and even pest control. Different tasks call for different dilutions of the soap. To get you started with some basic uses, check out Lisa Bronner's cheat sheet (quoted directly from the Dr. Bronner's website).
I seriously cannot WAIT to try all of these!
