My least favorite part about wearing makeup is cleaning brushes. Don’t get me wrong, I do wash them every week, however the cleaning process is tedious. I normally use Dr. Bronner’s organic pure castile liquid soap, which does the job really well, but this solid brush cleaner from Ahimsa Naturals brought in the fun factor – which I never thought would be possible. Ahimsa
is a California-based company, currently producing vegan and cruelty-free solid brush cleaners. I first spotted this goodness on Ahimsa Natural’s Instagram. For now, their products are currently available on Kind Beauty Collective, which is a beauty online store, with a splendid selection of vegan and cruelty-free products. The ingredients are as follow : coconut oil, palm oil, safflower oil, vegetable glycerin, purified water, sorbitol, sorbitan oleate, oat protein, and essential oils of rosemary and lavender. While there are many reasons why our skin could be acting up, sometimes one reason behind skin woes lies in our makeup brushes: when not properly and/or regularly cleaned, brushes become microbe nests. To fight the germs, Ahimsa Naturals uses a blend of essential oils of rosemary and lavender, both known for their antifungal and antibacterial properties. Once the brushes are cleaned, a slight herbal scent lingers on them. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Using a wet brush, I proceed to swish it in curcular motion to produce a little foam.
One swirl is enough to clean small brushes, but it’s preferable to repeat the process with bigger brushes, to ensure you get rid of all the dirt. A little rinse later, your brushes will look squeaky clean. It removes makeup stains, and impurities like a champ. (see how it works in this video). I even tried with my makeup sponge and it worked great as well. While I admit that my collection of makeup brushes is minimalistic, the cleaning session takes me just a few minutes with this product. After I’m all done, I rinse the top surface of the solid brush cleaner and let it air dry, before putting the lid back on. I’ve been using Ahimsa Naturals solid brush cleaner for several weeks, and I’m thrilled with it! Also, it’s far from being empty, despite a regular use. This is definitely something that will last you for several months. It’s convenient, less-time consuming and brushes feel perfectly clean. I also think that a small-sized version would be awesome to have for travelling.

It’s currently on sale and retails for the price of 20$ on Kind Beauty Collective

Have you used a solid brush cleaner before?

Take care,

I'm like you when it comes to brush cleaning, tedious with a BIG FAT T. But it must be done so the more fun and lovely-smelling a product is for this purpose, the better I say! Lovely review Liz, enjoy your clean brushes! xx
