In the weeks before Christmas I was wandering around The Bay (not a specialty makeup artist's shop...must have more faith in our local suppliers...) and came across a tiny display of Beauty So Clean.
They're famous for their disinfectant sprays -- you can sanitize your actual makeup and not just your brushes. I never thought about it, but it makes sense. Why not just use alcohol, you ask? I can see that After careful examination...the disinfectant was nowhere to be seen. There was, however, a brush cleanser! Why not?
So after a few weeks, I feel that I can honestly review this product for you without being accused of "just hatin'" (I'm looking at you, Twilight. Yes, I've read them all and I still don't get it). But here's my opinion: it sucketh.
The 125 mL/4.2 fl oz bottle was on sale for $9.99, so the price is not bad, but even that does little to sway my opinion. I've tried it on a number of brushes, both synthetic and natural, dense and fluffy, high end and cheap, and it's not done a single thing for any of them.
Trying to remove MAC Overdyed blush from my 187 brush took at least 1/8 of the bottle, and still nothing. I still had pink in the white goat fibres. Trying to remove lipstick from my Urban Decay shadow brush was a nightmare I won't even go into. Not to mention I almost feel like it made my brushes splay more than I'm used to.
Product rating? D. Don't bother.
You're better off going with a brush cleanser from Clinique (so far, my favourite) or one from Sonia Kashuk. In fact, the sample one I got from buying the Sonia Kashuk beautyblender dupe lasted me three times as long as BSC's -- despite being less than half the size and not a specialty product.
Maybe the disinfectant would be better?
