Makeup Brush Cleaning Made Easy

So I’ve mentioned I have OCD – especially about germs and cleanliness – but I’ve probably failed to mention that I HATE to clean… I know. It’s quite the conundrum I’m in. But we already know that I’m kind of a kook so let’s just blow past that… Needless to say, cleaning my makeup brushes is not my favorite thing in the world to do. I mean, seriously, its kind of the worst. Awhile ago Sigma sent me some fancy-pants makeup brushes that were oh-so beautiful along with this ‘mitt‘. As soon as I started to use them, they inevitably got covered with makeup and I was sad. So what’s a girl to do? Try out the mitt that promises to make cleaning your makeup brushes a breeze – duh! I was skeptical at first, but I was also desperate to make this process easier, quicker… maybe even more fun? If that’s a thing…

So let’s talk about the ‘mitt’, also called the Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleaning Glove (#outofbreath). The brilliant thing about it is, that is has these different sections on the mitt for different actions in your washing process. Above you can see Rinse, Wash and Refine. The other side of the mitt (which I failed to photograph – sorry) has Refine Plus. So basically, this is how it works:

1. Put the mitt on… like so

2. Go over to the sink and add some cleaning solution aka soap to the “Wash” section of the mitt and start running the water over it. Choose the brush you want to clean and swirl it around the wash section.

3. Then rinse off the mitt.

4. Then run water over the mitt as you swirl the brush around the “Rinse” section.

5. To get a deeper clean, add a little soap to the “Refine” section and swirl the brush around on it.

6. Rinse off the mitt.

7. Do the final rinse of the brush by swirling around the brush on the “Rinse” section again. Makeup brush cleaning made easy!

It totally works:

I never thought I’d see my brushes this clean again. Also, it took half the time and frustration it did when I cleaned my brushes by hand.

This gadget is good – and only $25 which is pretty awesome!

I give this product an A+
