I’ve never tried using a brush cleaner in my life. True story. I rarely use brushes as I’ve always used my fingers to apply liquid foundation. On the rare occasion that I do use my blush brush, kabuki brush and spoolie brush, I clean them by swirling them in soapy water or washing them using baby shampoo. Seemed to work just fine, except that it would take forever to dry!
I was introduced to J&C Super Clean Solutions last year at their intimate product launch together with Charm brushes. This product is the brainchild of two PR professionals, Jenny Yrasuegui and Celine Gabriel-Lim (get it? J&C?), whose love for makeup led them to creating the ultimate brush cleaner.
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to clean your brushes with J&C Super Clean Solutions:
Step 1: Prepare your dirty brushes and your trusty bottle of J&C Super Clean Solutions.
Step 2: Spritz, spritz, spritz your brushes! The number of sprays depend on how thick your brush heads are.
Step 3: Gently wipe your brush on a soft paper towel to remove makeup residue. You’ll notice that with J&C’s unique formula, makeup just easily slides off the bristles. The result is clean brushes with a pleasant minty scent.
Step 4: Wait a couple of minutes (not days!) for your brushes to dry.
Tip: For deep cleansing, you can pour J&C Super Clean Solutions into a cup and dip your brushes in. Swirl them a couple of times until all bristles are soaked, then rinse clean.
