Hands up who enjoys cleaning makeup brushes!? Well I certainly don't, I don't enjoy it which means I very rarely do it and I know that isn't good. My water either gets super hot after about 2 minutes or I have to spend 30 minutes with my hands under ice cold water, sloshing baby oil and foundation stains around my frozen palms. If that sounds like you, i'd like to introduce you to my new saviour - The Soap and Glory Massage mitt.
I got this idea from Lily Pebbles (I think) and it is genius! I literally apply a small dollop of Johnson' Baby Oil onto the mitt, rub my brush into it and water and repeat until the water runs clear. As well as saving my frozen hands it also does a really good job of getting deep into the brush, giving it a thorough clean throughout. I'm hoping this new 'gadget' will encourage me to wash my brushes more in 2016.

  1. I need this in my life wow this would make cleaning brushes so much easier as I really do hate doing it, so tedious - I'll be picking this up next time I'm in Boots!

  2. I do this exact same method except with an oven glove that's silicone that I bought from eBay. I also prefer to use a bar of soap, my brushes always feel super clean and soft afterwards! x

  3. That sounds exactly like me! I put off washing my brushes a disgustingly long amount of time because I literally hate it. I have to spend the entire day building up to it haha. I'll definitely be investing in this.

  4. Oh that's such a clever idea! I actually use olive oil instead of baby oil on foundation brushes but I'll give baby oil a go next time. Thanks for sharing, love the idea of using a mitt too!
