Primark PS… Unicorn Makeup Brush Cleaning Pad

We can all admit that when it comes to cleaning makeup brushes we would rather avoid it for as long as possible…

I spotted this interesting looking Unicorn cleaning pad in Primark for £1.50, it’s a rubber cleaning pad with all sorts of different areas to swirl brushes around.

I teamed it up with the Revolution Brush Cleaner and simply swirled my brushes around and pad and it worked a treat!

I found with the dotted area it worked best for eyeshadow brushes whereas the centre of the unicorns face worked great for larger brushes.

I have brushes from different brands which worked fine without losing any hair, it worked fab with flat foundation brushes and even removed dark eyeshadow colours.

At first I wondered if it was just a gimmick to play on the popular unicorn trend but it is a great accessory to get hold of and does the job perfectly.

The only ‘bad’ thing I found was that every so often it needed washing to remove excess product before resuming to brush cleaning and it did stain slightly once I’d finishes but for £1.50 who cares.

If you’re looking for a cheap and affordable way to clean your brushes then I would recommend checking out the Primark cleaning pads.

Makeup Revolution Pro Hygiene Solid Brush Cleaner Review

Makeup Revolution Solid Brush Cleaner hit or miss? Carry on reading to find out my full first impression!

First of all it costs £5 for a 100ml tub so it should last for a while and the packaging is pretty basic. One thing I didn’t like is that the instructions is stuck on with a sticky label which is already peeling off.

It’s pretty simple to use and handy to travel with as it isn’t very bulky. It is basically a pot of soap through that expires 12 months after opening.

From first impressions I was surprised at how well it removed harsh pink eyeshadow tones from the brushes with just one use.

An observation I found is that it cleaned my EcoTools foundation brushes much better than my Real Techniques ones but it still didn’t remove all of the product.

It cleans eyeshadow brushes very quickly and removes all traces of products but face brushes take much longer and it’s not guaranteed you’ll get a fully clean brush.

Overall I think the product works fine but it didn’t really impress me, had it throughly cleaned my face brushes then I’d be recommending it but it isn’t anything special and if you have a bar of soap already at home then it will do the same job.

B. Makeup Brush Cleanser

Today’s post is about a product that every make-up user needs, a good brush cleaner. It’s really important to clean brushes in order to ensure there’s no bacteria or dust in the bristles because of course this would cause you to have skin problems and possible breakouts.

The amazing product that’s great for cleaning brushes is by Superdrug’s own brand B. The bottle comes with a pump spray and you only need to use 2-3 sprays a time depending on how much product is on the bristles. 

It’s quick an easy to use and all you need to do is rub your brushes on some tissue to remove the makeup.  The cleanser works both on synthetic and natural bristles, I was sceptical to begin with having recently purchased Real Technique brushes for the first time and I didn’t want to ruin them but the product works perfect on them.

For as little as £4.99 for the single bottle (125ml) and £4.00 for the bottle and muslin cloth (bizarre deal I know) you can clean your brushes without worry of ruining them.
