MAC Brush Cleanser

Hello! Today’s topic is how I clean my brushes without washing them! This MAC Brush cleanser is perfect when I’m in a hurry and I don’t have any clean brush to apply my makeup … Yes, it happens! This MAC brush cleanser cleans, disinfects and takes care of the hairs, so that the brushes will last longer.

This Product from MAC comes in a plastic bottle, which is not that convenient to travel with, besides you want to have an extra cosmetic travel bag. Another thing which I don’t like is the lid of this bottle with a flip top opening, and the fact that there was no spray… It was not that easy to find a proper spray which was suitable for this bottle.
The liquid is purple-pink coloured with water like consistency. The scent of it is a bit alcoholic, but it doesn’t bother me at all.
On the bottle you can find the following information:

Apply to damp brushes and work through. Reshape and lay flat to dry.

And this pretty exactly what I do. And sometimes I like mixing it with water, in order to save a bit from the product. I use it only with my small (eye) makeup brushes and never with my foundation brushes (as I prefer washing them with soap and water). Mac Brush Cleanser leaves my brushes fresh and clean, and it takes about 5 minutes till my brushes are completely dry and usable again.
Ingredients: water, alcohol denat., sodium trideceth sulfate, disodium lauroamphodiacetate, hydrolyzed wheat protein, hexylene glycol, cetrimonium chloride, triclosan, isopropyl alcohol, blue 1, red 33.
MAC Brush Cleanser
I like using this product when I do not have enough time to clean my brushes and I’m on a hurry. It is a good product for in-between the washes but I would not replace the cleansing with soap and water. A PRO is fact that this MAC cleanser disinfects the bristles and MAC pretends that this increases the life of the brushes. The negative site of it, is of course the price (ca. 13.00 €) and second, I do sometimes need a lot of product in order to clean a single brush when it is very dirty.
All-in-all it is a good product, but it doesn’t replace „the real washing” of my brushes. Having in mind the price of it, I don’t think I will repurchase it again.
Enjoy your day!
