PS Silicone Brush Cleaner Review

PS Silicone brush cleaner
Hi Lovelies 
When it comes to cleaning my makeup brushes I used to shudder at the thought,  also at times have been a bit forgetful the reason for that was because cleaning my brushes was such a long chore. I mean I have well over 20 makeup brushes now and use most of them once a week at least so cleaning that many brushes is quite rhetorical and for me personally I find it boring and also so long to actually do. Firstly you get the brushes that you have used in a week, then you wash them all by hand with warm water and PH neutral shampoo then rinse, after that you have to wait for them to dry. So it was no wonder I wanted to get something to help reduce the time it takes for me to wash my brushes and thats where this Primark PS silicone brush cleaner comes in, I got this while going on a mini shopping trip and spotted these in the beauty/makeup section in the shop. 

Primark as we all know sells lots of things such as clothes, homeware and beauty products. I have only started to try a few of their beauty products on recently. They have lots of beaut products to choose from such as makeup, false nails and beauty tools. PS is a very budget friendly brand too.

First Impressions
I was lucky to discover this is my local Primark because it was next to the beauty tools such as their makeup drawers and bags. I wouldn't of had any idea that the shop sold brush cleaners if I didn't look there. I have wanted to try a brush cleaner for ages but thought they were a little expensive so thought this would a good first product to try.

Its packaged well and says what the product is with simple instructions on the front of it. I love thats it hot pink, I like all things pink so I can't complain.

What you need to clean makeup brushes

  • A spare 10-15 minutes
  • Delicate Shampoo/Shower gel
  • Warm water 
  • Silicone Brush Cleaner
  • Hand Towel
  • Jar

How I use the brush cleaner

  1. First get all the makeup brushes that needed cleaning, followed by taking them to the bathroom. 
  2. Put on the tap on followed by putting a little tiny bit of shower gel/shampoo or brush shampoo on the silicone brush cleaner. Put the makeup brush on the shower gel/shampoo and brush the brush round in circular motions. Whilst this happens, especially with foundation brushes it starts to remove the makeup.
  3. Once all the makeup is removed dry the makeup brushes on a towel and once you have dried them all to as much as possible let them dry near a window in a jar.

My Thoughts 
I defiantly think using this brush cleaner from PS ( Primark) has made a big difference to how I actually clean my makeup brushes. Using this actually removes all the makeup thats on my makeup brushes and took way less time then it did me doing it all by hand. It also leaves them feeling soft and very to similar to they did when they were brand new.

They are two ridge sizes on the silicone brush cleaner so it can be used by most of your makeup brushes. I had no problem cleaning any of my makeup brushes and this made it almost effortless to clean my brushes, which is good because cleaning my makeup brushes before was a long task that I really didn't like doing.

Below I have put up two pictures; one of them being myself washing one of my foundation brushes in the sink with the silicone brush cleaner, you can see some of the excessive foundation on the ridges of the brush cleaner. The bottom photo is a comparison of two brushes before and after being cleaned and as you can tell by the photo they is a pretty big difference after using this. 

With some of my brushes they have a little bit of staining but that has nothing to do with this cleaner at all, its because the makeup product such as blushers have actually stained on some bristles.

  1. I don't use brushes but my sister does so I will tell her about this. I think primark has an ok range but I personally have never tried any of their beauty products yet.

    I've tried the Real Techniques one of these and it was amazing but I'll have to try out this Primark one as well x

    I've never tried a brush cleaning tool before. May give this a go - it's so affordable and the results look pretty good. Thanks for sharing :-)

  6. I literally just ordered one of these last night - what a coincidence!
    Since ordering it last night I've been really excited but also very nervous to use it when it arrives because I was thinking to myself its so cheap is it really going to do anything? Will it ruin my brushes?Will it break after just one use? But after reading your review I'm less nervous because its made me realise that isn't the case and that just because it's so cheap it doesn't mean it won't work :) So thank you for writing this review - it has really helped me! :)

    I have a cheap version of this from eBay and I do like it but I find that the soaps work really well to clean my brushes too x
