Birchbox Review - Beauty Blender Cleanser

 

I have been a loyal user of Mac's Brush Cleanser ever since I started getting serious about makeup when I was 16. It worked perfectly for me so I never decided to delve into the unknown and try out something new. For me, I don't like spending a lot of money on something as simple as a brush cleaner. I can go to Boots and pick up some baby shampoo which will be miles cheaper and probably do a great job. However, when I found the Beauty Blender Cleanser in my Birchbox, I felt that I wasn't loosing anything by trying it out. 

The first thing I noticed was that it is more a shampoo consistency. Mac's cleanser is a soapy water, whereas this one was more gel-like. I got an immediate scent of lavender when I started to massage this product into the hairs of my brush. With a little water I found that it lathered a little but there was nothing major to report.


I was slightly concerned that the cleanser would be difficult to wash out and I would end up with brush hairs that were all stuck together and greasy. Thankfully this was not the case and the brushes dried brilliantly. The cleanser was amazing at getting my makeup tools really clean. Even the white fibres on my Mac brushes (eg 187 to the far left) where white again which goes to show how cleansed the brushes were.

I'm really happy with this cleanser and over all would buy it again. For £12, it is actually slightly more expensive than the Mac version but I think it has a more pleasant smell and dare I say it, perhaps does a better job. Over all I'm not too fussed. I would use either but this is definitely a product I would recommend if you're new to the brush cleaning world or just want to try something different!
