My ears perked up when I heard that the London Brush Company was debuting a non-toxic brush shampoo at the Makeup Show in NYC this May. As you know, I like to keep things non-toxic when I can, and though it’s not always possible with makeup, it should be possible with the rest of you kit! I was previously using Dr. Bronner’s as my non-toxic solution and while it works well in a pinch for natural bristle brushes, it does not work well on my synthetic brushes. I’m happy to report that the London Brush Company Brush Shampoo works like a delicious-smelling charm on my whole brush collection, even my beauty blenders!
I purchased this 2oz tub of soap for $12.00 at the Makeup Show and it was worth every penny! The container allows you to swirl your brushes around and get them really soaped up without pouring half your product down the drain. Brush cleanup has become a much more pleasant experience, especially considering the all natural lemon-y goodness you get to smell while washing up. It’s an all around delightful product and my brushes come out soft, clean and conditioned.
Ingredients: Goats milk, olive oil, coconut oil, palm kernel oil, olive butter & essential oils.
Directions: Wet brushes in warm H2O. Swish gently to lather. Massage on back of hand. Rinse. Squeeze out excess H2O in paper towel. Dry flat.
Bonus Alert! This soap can be a great stain remover too! While hard at work Memorial Day weekend, I got some mascara on a favorite sheer blouse. Following a like-attracts-like hunch (this soap is made with oils), I wet a cloth and dipped it in the soap. After a few seconds of rubbing, it came right out and didn’t leave a stain. Now this is not an advertised feature of the soap, so don’t go replacing your trusted laundry allies. But, if you need to get makeup out in a hopeless situation it’s definitely worth a try!
I will absolutely be buying this product again, however I have a feeling it’s going to last a long time!
Are you going to the Makeup Show in Chicago next week? Make sure you pick some up!
