How should I clean my brushes?
We recommend you show your brushes some love with our brush cleaning bundle that can be found here
Wet the brush bristles in a lukewarm water and run over the surface of the soap to create a lather. Rinse the bristles, careful not to wet the metal ferrule as this can loosen the glue and gently squeeze out any excess water. Repeat as necessary and leave brushes to dry flat.
Avoid drying your brushes on a radiator as the heat can also damage the glue.
How often should I clean my brushes?
So the recommendation we like to give for cleaning your most used face brushes would ideally be once a week, make it part of your Sunday routine so you don't forget, otherwise you'll have a build up of grease, oils and bacterias on your brushes, and these transfer onto your face....nasty!
The time frame for cleaning eye brushes is really dependent on how often you use them, for your most loved ones, perhaps 2 weeks, or if you're swapping colours a lot adjust this accordingly.
How should I clean my sponges?
We recommend using our vegan brush soap to clean your sponges too.
Simply dampen the sponge and rub into the surface of the soap. Squeeze the sponge to lather the soap, rinse and repeat until it’s as good as new.
