Want clean & soft brushes?

I cannot begin to tell you how desperately my brushes were in need of a good deep clean. So I finally got around to it today after procrastinating for ages and had forgotten how nice clean makeup brushes were :P

I had run out of my old baby shampoo so ducked down to the shops and bought this Johnson's baby conditioning shampoo and I'm impressed.
I dampened each brush under warm water, put a pea sized amount of the shampoo in the palm of my hand, lathered it up and rinsed a repeated a few times until the brushes were non foamy and the water ran clear.

This shampoo has made my brushes feel amazingly soft and clean. It is the best brush cleaner I have used so far. It got rid of all the colour and marks really easily and made them feel really lovely.

It's been ages since my brushes have looked and felt so nice, new and clean. I just want to keep touching them. The thought of dirtying them is just too much!
Will be sticking to this brush cleaner for a while. 

What do you use to clean your brushes?


  1. I use my MAC Cosmetics Brush Cleanser to clean my brushes, it works really good. :)

  2. I use the enkore's recipe to spot clean them, you can find it on my blog. But when I want do a deep cleaning I use baby shampoo and conditioner.

  3. @Christine - I use Mac brush clean to spot clean, I agree with you it works really well :)

    @RamblingRose - I have seen his method but never tried it. Maybe I should finally give it a go!

  4. I use MAC brush cleaner & a brush cleaning jar w/ soft scrubbing pad at the bottom from my local craft store. When I run out, I will try my babies baby shampoo & try it out! :)

  5. I know I shouldn't but I simply clean my brushes with a plain old bar of soap x

  6. @Primp and Giggle - A scrubbing pad at the bottom of a jar sounds like a fab idea, that's something else for me to try out! Thanks :)

    @Gaby - I have used hand soap before and it was gooood x

  7. great post! I use johnsons baby shampoo and extra virgin olive oil for spot cleaning, it works wonders!
