8 best make-up brush cleaners
Keep your beauty tools free from dirt and bacteria with the help of an effective product.

The Pro Hygiene Collection® Makeup Brush Cleaner £10, Feel Unique
Mild but effective, this cleanser was created for professional makeup artists but is a fuss-free, easy-to-use formula for beauty enthusiasts too. Fitted with a spray function, the cleanser is antibacterial and promises to kill 99.99 per cent of germs in just 60 seconds. To use, we found it worked best to spray the fluid directly onto a tissue or towel and wipe the brush until all product was removed. It’s super-powerful and dissolved all traces of residue, making it a must-have for your makeup bag.

Beauty| The Pro Hygiene Collection®
By Sarah Jayne – 24th January 2016
… Lately, I’ve been using The Pro Hygiene Collection® to clean my brushes and my face. What I love about this collection is there’s a makeup brush cleaner and a makeup sponge wash, so I can get both my brushes and beauty blenders squeaky clean. I like to physically wash my brushes rather than spray and wipe, so after a few squirts and a rinse under some hot water is only took a matter of minutes to wash my full collection. I find sometimes that my foundation can be really stubborn to remove, so it usually takes a lot of cleanser and rubbing to get it out completely, however I found with The Pro Hygiene Collection® it dissolved instantly. Once they’re dry, thanks to this collection, they don’t leave a greasy residue, which I’ve known to have with other brands. Plus, they have a gorgeous fresh, lemon clean kinda scent to them too. The makeup sponge cleaner really impressed me, as once I use my beauty blender I know it’s never going to be that shade of orange again. However, after just a couple of drops of the makeup sponge wash the foundation melted away, it actually looks brand new again! Once my brushes are all clean and left to dry, it’s time to remove my own makeup and jump in the bath. Now, I’ve tried makeup wipes and cleansing waters and they just don’t do it for me. In fact, I found the cleansing waters really stung my eyes and skin, but I’ve been absolutely lovin’ The Pro Hygiene Collection® makeup remover. Simple and effective. After a few drops on a cotton pad and a few wipes, my mascara and eye makeup is completely washed away. It really surprised me how easily this product takes off dark eye makeup, as normally this results in a huge pile of pads or suffering with panda eyes until I wash off the rest in the bath….

The Pro Hygiene Collection® Makeup Brush Cleaner, £8, from feelunique.com. Kills bacteria in just 60 seconds. CLEAN UP. I confess that when I wash my makeup brushes, I tend to use soap and dry them on a hot radiator. But from now on, I intend to give them a thorough clean once a month and leave to air dry – they deserve the same respect I give my skin. There are two brush cleansers I really love – one for a thorough monthly clean; the other for a quick fix after letting someone else use them.

The Pro Hygiene Collection Brush Cleaner Review | Nicholle Barlett’s Blog
By Nicholle Barlett – January 2015
As you can see, any product just melts out of the brushes and wipes straight off. It has a slight citrus scent but in general it smells…clean and professional (scent describing is not my strong suit). It dries within a couple of minutes and leaves your brushes soft and feeling brand new. I don’t know if it really does kill all bacteria. But I know that I’ve had no breakouts since I started using this. After using this for the past couple of months, I have to say, it really does work. It’s a perfect product for spot cleaning your brushes after each use and with 240ml, it’s going to last quite a while. I recommend still deep cleaning your brushes once a week.
GO PRO HYGIENE COLLECTION – Ethereal Beauty
by Ellie – 2014
The Makeup Brush Cleaner cleans makeup brushes. I use this in-between makeup, when I don’t have time to do a deep wash of my brushes, I use this instead. It takes off most of the makeup and sanitizes while doing so. You can use this to wash your makeup in a certain sense, but you’d be using a lot of product. So I suggest using a separate product for wash, and this Makeup Brush Cleaner just for the in-betweens! The Antibacterial makeup Spray is my fave! You spritz this on all your beauty products – powders, liquids, eyeshadows and even mascaras. You spritz it once. Let it dry. It not only eliminates bacteria but prevents bacteria from growing.
Antibacterial Makeup Spray | The Black Pearl Blog
Keeping my makeup very clean and sterile is something I started paying more attention to when my skin went crazy and I decided to eliminate all bacteria that could aggravate it. You probably know that it’s important to disinfect your makeup, but do you actually do it? I got a bottle of this Antibacterial Makeup Spray before my first ever blog to make sure all the products are 100% clean and safe to use by another person. Obviously, it is a product I use most days as well and I think that everyone should own a bottle of it.

The Pro Hygiene Collection® – Kayleigh Couture
By Kayleigh Johnson – 12th February 2016
If you’re a bit useless (like me!) when it comes to keeping your brushes clean and makeup hygienic, then I may have the answer. I was recently sent this Pro Hygiene Collection set which included 5 handy products for any makeup lover. It probably doesn’t seem like the most exciting of products but they do come in so useful and are pretty essential if you wear makeup and use makeup brushes every single day. Or, if you’re like me and love to do other people’s makeup, this handy kit will ensure you’re doing it hygienically. The set included an Antibacterial makeup spray, makeup brush cleaner, all in one makeup remover and my favourite, a makeup brush and sponge sanitizing wash. Seriously, what more could you need to keep your makeup and brushes clean?! I love that it’s all in one handy kit too – it keeps everything I’ll need in the one place and is great for travelling. I’d say this is definitely an essential kit for any makeup artists looking to keep their brushes and makeup germ free! I love the packaging too, it’s really sleek.

You wouldn’t consider licking a plate of food and popping it back in the cupboard, would you? Good, I should hope not! So why leave your makeup littered with bacteria and grime! Here is the solution The Pro Hygiene Collection® Antibacterial Makeup Spray, a product you can spray onto your makeup to lower the risk of contamination. Some might say this is relevant to us Pro’s but just think about how often you delve into your makeup bag to allow a friend to try your lipstick or when you quickly use an applicator or a sponge to do a touch-up… that is a lot of times, trust me, especially if you’ve never contemplated cleaning your applicators or brushes ever! “Save yourself the risk of eye infections or nasty skin conditions and make the effort to clean up with just a quick spray.”
THE PRO HYGIENE COLLECTION® MAKE UP BRUSH CLEANER | In The Frow
You spritz this over your brush and immediately you can start to see the colour of the bristles start to change colour. It really is so powerful on removing makeup. You then rub the brush over a piece of kitchen roll, toilet paper or cotton pad, whatever you have lying around, and the colour will begin to come straight off the brush. A few more spritzes and your brush will be entirely clean, free of bacteria and ready to re-use without the hassle of waiting for it to dry. Hey presto, this may be the best thing since sliced bread. If you are forgetful when it comes to brush cleaning, then this is probably going to be your saviour too. V x

I received The Pro Hygiene Collection® and I have to say I am SUPER IMPRESSED! “The Makeup Brush Cleaner is wonderful. Non-chemical smelling, quick drying, convenient to use and does the job in hand…” Also, it looks super slick!! Love the lemon fragrance in the Hand Sanitizing Gel and again quick drying. The Antibacterial Makeup Spray is genius for professionals working in the makeup and beauty industry and especially for pro artists, educators, makeup testers and for home use – everyone who uses makeup should have this magic spray. They are WINNERS.

I’ve mentioned The Pro Hygiene Collection® Makeup Brush Cleaner a few times in passing but it seemed only fair to give it it’s time in the spotlight today. As I’m sure you’ve heard a hundred times before, cleaning your brushes is important, particularly when you’re struggling with breakouts. Bacteria builds up in them and the last thing you want to do to troubled skin is slap a load of bacteria back onto your freshly cleansed face. Weekly brush shampoos are a fantastic thing to do, but I like to clean up in between as well, which is where The Pro Hygiene Collection® Makeup Brush Cleaner comes in.

Running a top makeup school in central London means hygiene is of the utmost importance to me and training my students professionally. The Pro Hygiene Collection® is amazing for killing virtually all bacteria and keeping our brushes and products super clean. I won’t use any other brush cleaner now as I full trust a “safe beauty” brand whole heartedly. It ensures that my students have the utmost training in hygiene before and after they leave us to become makeup artists themselves.

Quick Makeup Brush Cleanse
By PEACHES & PJS – 3lst August 2015
Hands down, I’m lazy. Lazy with most things at home, cooking, cleaning etc. If it requires me to move, then well you have no chance. At work, I’m completely opposite and the most helpful person you can meet. I seriously need help balancing the two! Cleaning makeup brushes can take forever especially when you have a vast collection. So the solution is to find the quickest, easiest way to achieve clean, bacterial free brushes! & I think I have found it. The Pro Hygiene Collection® Makeup Brush Cleaner is an antibacterial sanitizer, for natural and synthetic brushes. Simply spray the bottle directly onto your makeup brushes and wipe off with a tissue until the brush is clean. Leave for a couple of minutes, then hey presto, clean, dry brushes ready to be used again! See how hassle free that is? I am totally impressed with this brush cleanser and true to the box, it is super quick and easy to do! One of the downsides I hate about washing your brushes with shampoo is how long it takes for them to dry! With this spray, you can simply clean a brush and use it back on your face in a matter of minutes. Impressive if you ask me!

So fresh and so clean – BeautyLogie
by Héléne – 16th September 2014
I’ve never really been into all the brush-cleaning thing… but I guess no one really likes spending hours doing it. So, to add a little more fun to this process (yeah right), I wanted to give a shot to proper makeup cleaning products. I mean, I regularly buy antibacterial sprays, but that’s it. I use my shampoo to do all the remaining work. So, I went for The Pro Hygiene Collection® set. To be honest, I didn’t give a serious look at the products before putting them in my basket. Just liked the pretty serious – almost medical – packaging. And there were lots of products to test out. So there it is, I’ve tried them and they are awesome!

Why do you need to clean your makeup brushes – Woman’s Way
By Aine Toner – 10th July 2016
Professional makeup brushes are an investment. And, like any other investment we fork out a small fortune for, we expect a pretty decent return on these investments. So when it comes to our makeup tools, there are more reasons than just money to ensure that happens. During use, our makeup brushes collect dust, dead skin cells, oils, direct and bacteria, which isn’t exactly what you want to be placing on your face when you’re already working hard to keep it healthy. If you suffer from acne or sensitive skin, it’s even more important that you keep on top of your brush cleaning. The bacteria that gathers on your foundation and powder brushes can cause your brushes to be rough which can irritate the skin. Ideally you should clean your brushes after every use, but if but if that’s not possible, try and get into the habit of cleaning them at least once a week. While baby shampoo is a great product to keep on hand to clean your brushes with, here are some of the many other special brush shampoos available on the market too.

by Sam and Nicola – 9th October 2012
We all know that it’s essential to have products in your kit to maintain hygiene. Brush cleanser, antibacterial hand gel and sanitizers are not as exciting in your kit as a palette of beautiful eyeshadows but none the less just as important. The Pro Hygiene Collection® Makeup Brush Cleaner and sanitizers are not cheap, but if it saves you from cross infection then, we believe they are worth every penny.
