CLEANING MAKEUP BRUSHES IS A PAIN IN THE ASS...TIL NOW!
Girls & boys, listen to me. I HATE to wash my makeup brushes, don't you? When you have 200 makeup brushes to clean after a busy day, nothing is more unenjoyable as a professional makeup artist. So when Rachel Lisa brought me this nifty little brush soap last summer, I had to film a quick little video for all of you.
Clean Apothecary 's beauty & brains is makeup artist Jessica Hart. She started this brand a few years ago and she has really made quite a name for herself. I guess she too was dog ass tired from cleaning her brushes as well.
Not only has Clean Apothecary been a huge success for her, so many BIG companies have knocked off her beloved Clean Brush. Shame shame.
While some big companies may have knocked her stuff off in the name of a bottom line, hers is superior.
I have tested all these brush soaps.... And ya'll know I don't put my stamp on approval on just anything! :P She puts love and care in every container and it shows in product performance.
I have used a few brush soaps over the last year, seeing if there was any difference in them or if they were all pretty much the same. I quickly discovered there was a difference and I now will use nothing else but Clean Brush & Woolite. (more on that later).
Some of the "other" brush soaps left a "residue" on my brushes, leaving them somewhat awkward when I would apply products. They left such a bad residue on my synthetics, I tossed them all in the trash. I never had this happen with Clean Brush Soap, which is why I am such a huge fan!
Clean's Brush Soap Lineup is perfect for pro makeup artists... but even my own mother is a HUGE fan and orders religiously! She keeps hers right on her bathroom sink!
Some of our favorites are:
- Lavender Olive Oil
- Grapefruit Olive Oil
- Unscented (for those of you who are sensitive to fragrance)
- Rose (my fav!)
- Rachel Lisa flavor. Yes. That bitch has her own custom formula. #fancy! (Jessica can also make you a custom flavor of your own too!)
Unscented or Lavender. All "flavors" are divine!
With my truck driver mouth, these wouldn't be so bad. :P
Clean has also launched some nifty new Artisan soaps as well. That Jessica has been a busy gal! I love supporting small biz, don't you? Not only is she smart she is super sweet!
Artisan Soaps made with love!
Rachel & I did a marathon shooting weekend and got ALL of our brushes dirty. We wanted to see how may brushes 1 jar of Clean Brush Soap could clean.
(* we were playing around with some vintage actions on our camera, because our iPhone didn't capture the best light) we hope you love the video!
If you hate to wash brushes as much as I do, YOU NEED TO PURCHASE A CASE RIGHT NOW.
I have tried some of the other kinds of "brush" shampoo on the market and they all leave a nasty residue and make my brushes flimsy and yucky...Clean Brush never did that. Clean Brush hands down is #amazeballs.
Put this on my list of Favorite Things! Coming soon to the Studio. We just placed our order today!
