I do good to wash them every month.
Usually, washing involves standing at the sink forever, making sure the brushes are thoroughly scrubbed, and drying out my hand because I use my palm to agitate the bristles. My foundation brush takes the longest (even after a soak in soapy water) because the product really gets down into the brushes.
It sucks. I hate doing it. I risk infection by not keeping my brushes clean prior to every single use.
I literally do a little dance when Ipsy sends me a new brush because it means I can go EVEN LONGER in between washings.
Did I drive the point home yet?
So I wasn't about to get something the size of a dang oven mitt.
When I was invited to trial this thing called a "Brush Egg" I jumped at the chance. It fits in the palm of my hand and will clean my brushes? Sure I'll give it a try.
I even have 2 identical brushes and did the first one the "old" way and then tried the brush.
Oh. My. God.
Literally half the time and effort. The little dot things help lather and scrub and then I just rubbed the bristles over the ridges. Rinse and rub again under running water.
Done. Clean. EVEN THE FOUNDATION BRUSH.
My mind is blown.
It fits right in my makeup bag (so I can take it on my next vacation too). It may sound weird to mention this...but it didn't have a funky smell coming out of the box. You know how some things have that "processed" smell and it can get on your brushes? This didn't smell gross.
Seriously. You need this in your life. Green, Pink, or Purple...go get one!
