8 best make-up brush cleaners
Keep your beauty tools free from dirt and bacteria with the help of an effective product.
The Pro Hygiene Collection® Makeup Brush Cleaner £10, Feel Unique
Mild but effective, this cleanser was created for professional makeup artists but is a fuss-free, easy-to-use formula for beauty enthusiasts too. Fitted with a spray function, the cleanser is antibacterial and promises to kill 99.99 per cent of germs in just 60 seconds. To use, we found it worked best to spray the fluid directly onto a tissue or towel and wipe the brush until all product was removed. It’s super-powerful and dissolved all traces of residue, making it a must-have for your makeup bag.

… Lately, I’ve been using The Pro Hygiene Collection® to clean my brushes and my face. What I love about this collection is there’s a makeup brush cleaner and a makeup sponge wash, so I can get both my brushes and beauty blenders squeaky clean. I like to physically wash my brushes rather than spray and wipe, so after a few squirts and a rinse under some hot water is only took a matter of minutes to wash my full collection. I find sometimes that my foundation can be really stubborn to remove, so it usually takes a lot of cleanser and rubbing to get it out completely, however I found with The Pro Hygiene Collection® it dissolved instantly. Once they’re dry, thanks to this collection, they don’t leave a greasy residue, which I’ve known to have with other brands. Plus, they have a gorgeous fresh, lemon clean kinda scent to them too. The makeup sponge cleaner really impressed me, as once I use my beauty blender I know it’s never going to be that shade of orange again. However, after just a couple of drops of the makeup sponge wash the foundation melted away, it actually looks brand new again! Once my brushes are all clean and left to dry, it’s time to remove my own makeup and jump in the bath. Now, I’ve tried makeup wipes and cleansing waters and they just don’t do it for me. In fact, I found the cleansing waters really stung my eyes and skin, but I’ve been absolutely lovin’ The Pro Hygiene Collection® makeup remover. Simple and effective. After a few drops on a cotton pad and a few wipes, my mascara and eye makeup is completely washed away. It really surprised me how easily this product takes off dark eye makeup, as normally this results in a huge pile of pads or suffering with panda eyes until I wash off the rest in the bath….

The Pro Hygiene Collection® Makeup Brush Cleaner, £8, from feelunique.com. Kills bacteria in just 60 seconds. CLEAN UP. I confess that when I wash my makeup brushes, I tend to use soap and dry them on a hot radiator. But from now on, I intend to give them a thorough clean once a month and leave to air dry – they deserve the same respect I give my skin. There are two brush cleansers I really love – one for a thorough monthly clean; the other for a quick fix after letting someone else use them.
