When it comes to makeup brushes keeping them clean is super important. Lucky for us there are plenty of amazing cruelty-free options out there to suit every budget.
Squeaky Clean Brush Cleanser
This brush cleaner from Irish brand Ella&Jo is great to use in-between deep cleans.
Simply spray the brush with some product and wipe cleaning using some tissue paper.
It's ideal for cleaning eyeshadow brushes quickly so you don't get any unwanted residual shadow on your eyes.
SOLID BRUSH AND SPONGE SOAP
For deep cleaning the Blank Canvas Cosmetics solid soap is a popular option with many beauty influencers.
This is brush cleaner is very easy to use and will effectively get rid of the build-up of product on your brushes not leaving a trace behind.
What's better is that you don't need to get a separate cleaner for your sponges as it works well for them too.
What makes this solid cleanser from Beauty Blender different to the previous one is the unique pink silicone textured pad that's included.
This pad is designed to help remove stubborn stains from your brushes and sponges ensuring they look as good as new.
This is another favourite among beauty influencers however it's slightly more expensive than the Blank Canvas one retailing for €16.50 in Brown Thomas.
Real Techniques Cosmetic Brush Cleanser
If you're looking for a cheap and cheerful brush cleaner then this one from Real Techniques might be for you.
It effectively cleans brushes however I've found it's not great for stain removal.
This cleanser works best if paired with their silicone cleansing palette as this provides a deeper cleaning and helps with stain removal.
