The £2.80 brush cleaning tool to make life easier

Hands up if you hate washing your brushes….I think everyone feels the same about this chore even though we know it needs to be done for the sake of our skin but if you are anything like me, you put it off for as long as you can. But how nice does it feel once they are all clean and fluffy?
Well what if I told you there was a little rubber tool for under three quid which could make it a little more bearable….it would be great eh? Well it is great and I am so pleased with my little Ebay purchase that I needed to share it with you all.
Introducing my newest best-est friend the Brush Egg

This little guy is made of silicone with ridges at the bottom to help agitate bristles and little bumps (I was going to put knobs but seen as my mental age is 12 I though better of it) which helps work up a later as well as really working in brush shampoo on the more stubborn brushes. I use this with baby shampoo which I generally use on my brushes and it really cut down the cleaning time buy about 15 mins (I have a stupid amount of brushes)
You may have seen the sigma brush glove which I have considered purchasing but at £30.95 it seems a lot of money so this is such a fantastic alternative that does a similar job. I used the brush egg on all my brushes and it cleaned them all really well even ones caked in foundation, the only negative I have to say about this is that it is on the small side. So for large bronzing brushes you do have to work at getting all sides clean but is that worth buying a product 10 times the price? Personally I don’t think it is.

You can buy the Brush Egg for £2.79 from the same Ebay seller I did HERE, they are UK based so delivery only takes a few days. There are even cheaper listing on there but the sellers seem to be outside of the UK so delivery will take longer and I prefer to have things within a few days rather than a few weeks but that’s just me.

This would also work perfectly with the Make Up Revolution Brush Shampoo I previously reviewed which you can read about by clicking THIS

Let me know if you decide to try one of these for yourself – I would LOVE to know how you get on with it!

Thanks for reading

    Yay! I’m so pleased you’ve written about this – I’m looking for some new brushes at the moment, but I was wondering if I could get any good cleaning tools for them, I’ve now added this to my wishlist 🙂
