Clean brushes are a must-have for healthy skin. Over time your makeup brushes can grow fungus or bacteria without proper care. As a result, you may unknowingly transfer these bacteria to your face, triggering nasty skin rashes or breakouts.
What’s a girl to do to keep her skin looking flawless and her brushes free of bacteria? You can physically wash the brushes yourself by using soap and water, but this process may not be the most effective use of time, and you may not always do a thorough job of cleaning your brushes.
There are dozens of makeup brush cleaning machines in the marketplace to choose from that can help to not only clean your brushes but extend their life span. We are here to present you with the top three systems that are stirring up a bit of conversation.
The Lilumia Makeup Cleaning System can clean up to six makeup brushes at a given time using their soap products. This machine operates using three cycles -wash, rinse and second rinse. It completes the entire cleaning process in a matter of 15 minutes which can prove extremely useful for those of us who don’t have a whole lot of time on our hands.
This machine averages $125-$150 depending on where you purchase this product. The Lilumia Makeup Brush Cleanser costs average $20-$25. You don’t have to replace this soap very often so, do not stress too much about having to make too many purchases.
The stylPro Brush Cleaner is a more affordable option for gals looking to clean their brushes without having to break the bank. It comes with a stylPro handle which assists in the drying process.
