Did You Know You Should Clean Your Makeup Brushes Once a Week? See How!
How to use the Niré Pureform™ Silicone brush cleaning tool
The Niré Pureform™ silicone brush cleaning tool is like a mini washing-board for your brushes! It is made out of silicone and has two different surfaces, smaller knobs at the top and grooves across the sides. The smaller knobs are used for the lathering and cleaning of smaller brushes while the horizontal grooves are used to agitate the bristles just enough so they release product build up and dirt. The grooves are perfect for cleaning bigger face brushes as there is often a lot of dirty old makeup stuck inside them!
For glowing skin, did you know you should be cleaning your makeup brushes ONCE A WEEK?
And here are 4 great reasons why…
- Unclean brushes contain bacteria, which can cause acne and clogged pores.
- Dirty brushes do not perform as well as clean ones, since caked-on makeup can get in the way of an even application and mess up the intended colour.
- Unwashed bristles get dry and brittle thanks to leftover makeup, which can cause skin irritation (not to mention blackheads)!
- Washing your brushes keeps the bristles soft and flexible, making them last longer and work like new.
5 easy steps to using your Niré Pureform Brush Cleaner*:
*If you don't already own the Niré Pureform Brush Cleaner, you can follow the steps below using the palm of your hand instead, although we do recommend getting a Pureform tool to make cleaning easier, more hygienic, and leave your brushes sparkling clean.
Step 1 – Wet makeup brush by running it under the tap. Be careful not to get the ferrule and handle too wet, this can loosen the glue inside your brushes.
Step 2 – Apply a mild cleaning solvent like shampoo or washing up liquid on the Pureform tool. You can either hold the Pureform tool in your hand or put your fingers inside - whichever way is more comfortable for you.
Step 3 – Twirl your makeup brush around on the Pureform cleaner to lather it up with soap suds. Do this on the smaller knobs if it is a more delicate brush, and across the main grooves if it is a larger brush.
Step 4 – Rub the brush around and from side-to-side over the grooves to get rid of stubborn makeup and dirt. Mark sure that the soap gets well into the brush fibres. Rinse and repeat until you can’t see any more makeup colour in the soap suds.
Step 5 –Final rinse holding the brush facing downwards under a stream of clean, cold water, gently pulling down on the fibres. Lastly, let your brushes dry on a tilted surface with the handle side HIGHER than the brush bristle side.
This is the most important thing to remember so your brushes can work brilliantly, longer.
