Cleaning make up brushes is not my favorite thing to do. It is necessary to clean them regularly, for your and your clients hygiene. You can spot clean them with a spray or deep clean them with water and soap of your choice.
To make the job easier there are many different tools and gadgets on the market. I've watched some videos to come to the conclusion that the cleaning machines don't work that well and cost more of your time than washing them by hand.
Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette caught my eye when I first saw it.
The color is a bright fuchsia pink. Not my favorite, but not important as long as it does the job. The palette is made out of silicon. There are three different dots and crosses to clean brushes at vary from large to small.
I've tried to wash my brushes whilst holding it in my left hand. I found out that it is better to lie it down in the sink, because I need both of my hands to grab the brushes and put a fresh dollop of liquid soap in the palette after I've cleaned a really dirty brush.
My final verdict: It makes cleaning the brushes more fun. You waste less water and soap. Depending on the amount of brushes that you clean, you can also let the brushes dry on the side of the palette.
Overall I found the price too high for what it does (€20). There are cheaper alternatives out there.
I must say that I am curious to try the Sigma cleaning glove. I can imagine that you can still use the hand that is wearing it unlike the cleansing palette.
