I normally try to wash my makeup brushes on every Saturday. Two Saturdays ago was the first Saturday that I didn't have to work in a few months. It was pure bliss having two days off! Unfortunately, I had to work this past Saturday again. The first order of the day was to wash my brushes that were badly in need of a washing. (I do clean my brushes daily using a daily brush cleanser.)
Daiso Puff and Sponge Cleanser has been and is still my favorite cleanser. It cleans the brushes very well and is so inexpensive. I know that many people have been loving the Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser and I'll admit that it was good but I still prefer the Daiso one. The other thing that I use when cleaning my brushes is a nifty little gadget that is actually meant to clean your pores. I can't remember for sure but perhaps it was for blackheads? It's a soft rubbery pad with tiny little "fingers" to help scrub. I find it perfect for scrubbing my brushes while washing and rinsing it off.
This gadget was given to me by a friend a few years ago. I've been using it for almost that long to wash my brushes and have not had any adverse effects to the brush bristles. I will need to pick up more of both the cleanser and the little scrubby thing during my next Japan trip.
My happy brushes:
How often do you wash your brushes?
