How I keep my Makeup Brushes Clean

Bacteria loves to breed in makeup brushes, therefore keeping them clean is paramount. Personally I find cleaning my makeup brushes a bit of a chore, so the easier the process the better. There are two products that I like to use; NatraSan First Aid Spray* for everyday cleaning and Dr Bronner Unscented Baby-Mild Pure-Castile Soap for a deep clean.

Every morning, after applying my makeup, I spray some NatraSan (£10.00) onto the brushes, swirl it in my hand and leave to dry - ready to be used the next day. This provides a natural disinfectant, preventing the build up of bacteria. It contains no alcohol, no harmful chemicals or preservatives and is 100% natural. It can also be used on cuts and minor burns to prevent infection and promote healing, and can even be used on acne and spots.

Around two or three times a month I use Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap (£1.99) to thoroughly clean my brushes. I put a small amount into the palm of my hand, wet the brush and swirl it against my palm then rinse. I then lay them down to dry on a towel overnight. The soap is very gentle on the brush and the essential oils keep your brushes feeling super soft, you do not want your brush drying out.

Both are fragrance free and suitable for sensitive skin. How do you clean your makeup brushes?


  1. I know that's terrible, but I don't really clean my brushes that often :D I've recently talked about that with a friend of mine and she bought me a cleaning product for Christmas :D I used to clean them with baby shampoo like every 2 months or so. In my defense, I put on makeup once a week :D
