Daiso Makeup Brush Cleaner: $39 NTD
With it being equivalent to less than £1 at the current exchange rate, I didn’t really have much expectation on how this would perform but I was quite pleasantly surprised. To use this, I had poured some into a container, dipped my brush in, swirl it around on the palm of my hand and then rinse. This way wasn’t too bad but for better results, use it in conjunction with a brush cleansing mat, glove, palette, etc to get a deeper clean.
Brushes are clean if the they've been used with powder products. I did find that if they’ve been soiled in liquid or cream products, it doesn’t clean as well. It’ll require a few more washes to get it all cleaned off. It didn’t work well with my beauty blender due the cleaner being a watery consistency. The brushes drinks up the cleanser due to it's consistency so I end up refilling the container.
There is a slight chemical smell which may be bothersome for some people. The best way to describe it is it reminds me of super glue, a faint, weak, super glue scent. It doesn't linger onto the brushes once they've dried though. The chemicals does dry my hands a bit so if you have sensitive skin, it'll be harsh. I 100% recommend you use this with a cleansing mat, glove etc.
For the price, it's pretty decent. It helps cut the cleaning time down by a lot. There is a downside though. You can't purchase this easily as there are no stores in the UK or Europe. Wish I had just purchased more whilst in Taipei. Once this is empty, I'm going to go back to the trusty baby shampoo.
Do you use a brush cleanser?
