I’m sure I’m not the only who finds cleaning makeup tools to be a strenuous task *sigh*. Luckily, I now have a product that makes cleaning my makeup tools SO much easier, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want the task of cleaning our makeup tools to be less strenuous? I know I do!
Over the years I’ve used everything from dishwashing liquid to the Beauty Blender solid cleanser to clean my beauty tools. The Beauty Blender liquid was my favorite sponge and brush cleaning soap, but it is just SO expensive. Realistically I cannot fork out R400+ to repurchase every time, and that just for cleaning make-up tools. Fortunately, Pink Cosmetics sent me their handmade Solid Brush Cleaner a few weeks ago. I’ve used it quite a bit now and am so excited to share this gem with all of you!

Can we just take a minute to appreciate the flower detail on the soap? I mean, how absolutely cute??? It reminds me so much of the Swirl And Sparkle brush cleaners Don’t they look similar? (Picture taken from the internet)
It’s really easy to use this soap. I just wet the soap as well as my brush, swirl my brush in the soap and clean it with a brush egg or brush mat. When I’ve gotten rid of all the makeup on the brush, I rinse it and lay it down to dry. Simple! When I am done using the soap, I rinse if needed, let it air dry and close it up again.
The soap cleaned my brushes and Beauty Blender so, so well. It got rid of tough foundation stains and gel eyeliner in no time. It also left my brushes feeling soft and smelling so good! I am beyond pleased with the performance of this product. The little flower will dissolve after a few washes but that doesn’t make this product any less amazing.

Some people don’t like make-up cleaners in containers. If you’re one of those people that’s completely fine, because you can decant the soap and rinse it after swirling each brush on it. No biggie. So you see, this brush soap is pretty amazing. There are 2 different variants. This one, which is the pink peonie and 97% natural, and the lemongrass/mint one with essential oils that is 100% natural.
YES. Everyone who is everyone needs this in their life! It’s important to keep our make-up tools clean at all times. Compulsory, actually. This soap is 100% something you will make use out of making it worth your money. I love that it is parabens, sulphates and phthalates free.
Where To Purchase:
You can purchase these Solid Brush And Sponge Cleaners from Pink Cosmetics here. It retails for R150 each, WAY cheaper than the Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser and for way more product as well.
I know some of you might be thinking, “but baby shampoo is R30?” yes, baby shampoo is R30, but I have used it before and this product honestly works much, much better. With baby shampoo I used so much product because my foundation and eyeliner brushes were hard to clean. I think because it is also liquid, you tend to use more. Because this soap is solid, I find I use less. Also, this soap is natural, so it won’t harm your brushes or make them stiff/hard. The essential oils contained in these soaps conditions your brushes leaving them feeling soft, but not greasy at all.
