This product is blowing up EVERYWHERE online! I’ve seen beauty bloggers and all my friends raving about Penney’s Brush Cleaning Mitt. It’s cheap as chips at €1.50 but what’s the fuss about it?
As any make-up lover knows, cleaning your brushes is the biggest hassle – so when I heard there was something out there to make it easier, I jumped on the band wagon. We all have different techniques to clean them but I’ve my own special way – and I’m going to tell you what that is!
Using baby shampoo for all my brushes (real and synthetic), I soak them in warm water before squeezing a little bit on my hand. Using a swirling motion, I swipe the brushes up and down the ridges of my finger applying slight pressure so that the bristles get a seriously good clean. When I’m happy enough with how clean they are, I run the brush under some warm water to wash out all the soap, squeeze any excess water out of the bristles and leave to dry flat. Now I know this is not the best way to wash your brushes but it’s my way!
How I use this new fantastic Penneys product is the exact same, but instead of my fingers I use the brush cleaner! It is definitely a life saver because I no longer get cramps in my hands or arms from vigorously cleaning and I don’t end up with awful prune fingers. Whiel most other brush cleaning mitts start at €20, Penney’s sell theirs for just €1.50 – an absolute steal!
