I first noticed this cute little gadget on instagram and contacted Swiitch South Africa on how I can get my hands on this nifty brush cleanser. I got put in touch with Samantha from Life Retreat and I ended up purchasing my pink BrushEgg from them for R99.99. They sent it to me as soon as they received stock and it arrived here with a friend, a white and blue beach ball, which I thought was a super fun surprise and a nice extra touch. I featured Swiitch and the BrushEgg on a Tuesday Treasure post as well, which you can read here.
The BrushEgg is made out of silicone and has two different surfaces, smaller knobs at the top and groves. The smaller knobs are used for foam and lathering and cleaning of smaller brushes while the groves are used to agitate the bristles just enough so they release product build up and dirt and are perfect for cleaning bigger brushes after you lathered them up.
I have to admit that I’ve been having a ton of fun with my BrushEgg as you can see in the pictures below, and I wasn’t even using it yet!
How to use the BrushEgg
Step 1 – Wet makeup brush
Step 2 – Apply mild cleaning solvent like shampoo or liquid hand wash on the BrushEgg.
Step 3 – Twirl your makeup brushes around to lather them up on the smaller knobs.
Step 4 – Move the brushes from side to side over the groves to get rid of stubborn dirt.
Step 4 – Rinse with clean water and let your brushes dry on a flat surface.
As you can see, the BrushEgg is super fast and easy to use and I highly recommend it!
