I have two bursh cleaners in my kit and one of them is VMV Hypoallergenics Instant, No Rinse Hypoallergenic Brush Cleaner.
This is best to use on brushes owned by people who are highly allergic to certain scents and chemicals that are present in some brush cleaners.
Being a gentle cleanser, I usually double cleanse brushes that I used for colored powders and creams (foundations + lipsticks). It takes a while for VMV’s brush cleaner to breakdown certain ingredients of the makeup used. I have noticed that this works best on brushes that I use for powdered products.
This brush cleaner is alcohol based. I spray the bristles with enough product to dampen them. Then, I swirl the bristles on a piece of of tissue paper to remove the the makeup. After cleaning, if I am at home, I air dry them on my drying rack. When I’m working, I place the brushes on a table with the bristles laying at the edge of it.
Once dried, my brushes feel soft and looks shiny.
Aside from cleaning brushes, I use this to disinfect makeup products that I use. I spritz a light mist on eye shadows, on eyelash curlers, on tweezers, on scissors, on compact powders, or on lipstick bullets. I spritz this brush cleaner on eye pencils and lip pencils before I sharpen them and after I use them.
I use this to sanitize my brush belt and my makeup kit as well. You store your tools and products in these particular sites, so frequent cleaning and sanitizing in the norm. Remember that you are working with an array of people all the time. It’s important to keep these two clean and bacteria free always. Let me tell you, people will notice if you keep your tools keep and tidy; it can affect your reputation.
VMV Hypoallergenics Instant, No Rinse Hypoallergenic Brush Cleaner has Gylceryl Laurate which is known for its antibacterial properties and Camellia Sinensis Extract (Green Tea Extract) for its antiviral properties. This product was made keeping in mind that your skin needs to be protected as well.
Panthenol is what makes the brushes soft and shiny.
This 250 ml spray bottle retails for Php 900 ($18).
This is available to purchase at all VMV boutiques. Do take note this runs out of stock quite fast.
