The other things to be discussed in this post are the often forgotten makeup applicators (brushes and sponges).
There are great brush cleaners out there with easy to follow directions. Yet for some reason we’ve run across women who don’t realize that their blemish problems may be a result of a failure to purchase and use one of these cosmetic brush cleaners regularly.
There are a number of Extrav options such as Bobbi Brown, MAC and Estee Lauder. We haven’t personally used any and would love to hear from anyone who has.
The C2 option we recommend is Sephora Daily Brush Cleaner that starts at $7 a bottle. It’s a daily cleanser that’s particularly great for quickly cleaning off your brush when you’re going to use it immediately to apply a different color. Just spray a little on a tissue and wipe your brush off.
The Value option is using something you already have in your bathroom, your shampoo. Make a applicator bath by mixing some shampoo with warm water in a bowl. Swirl your brush around and rinse. While it won’t disinfect it will sanitize your applicators and brushes.
Whatever you decide upon, make sure to use it at the very least weekly. Your skin is dependent upon your actions for its clarity.
