Our makeup bags go through a lot! We are often given them for birthdays and Christmas gifts and love them when they are new, sparkly and clean. But how long is it before they start looking as though they have been dragged through a hedge backwards and covered in a film of sandy coloured stuff? Unless we are literally cleaning (and we mean deep cleaning) our make bags at least once a month, then the chance is there are nasty germs lurking!
Think about it. We put them in our handbags, get them out on the train, have them in our work office, take them
on holiday, on business trips. They actually get around a bit! But we all (and although we are the “queens of Clean” here at TPHC HQ), know our own personal makeup bags need a bit more care and attention.
The Pro Hygiene Collection Discovery Kit is perfect for gals out there who are new to our fab range and could do with a spring clean of their makeup and makeup bags. (it’s also a great gift for girlfriends!). Comprising our best-seller Makeup Brush Cleaner, Antibacterial Makeup Spray, Makeup Brush & Sponge Sanitizing Wash, All In One Makeup Remover and Hand Sanitizing Gel, it’s the perfect way to get you makeup, makeup bag, brushes and tools back into shape.
Find an old towel (clean of course), but one that you don’t mind if you get lippie on it! Empty the contents of your makeup bag and then be ruthless. Sort out the makeup and tools. What is in good shape and can be rescued and really be honest with yourself and cull the hopeless items.
Bag clean. Plastic – give if a thorough wash with The Pro Hygiene Collection® Makeup Brush & Sponge Sanitizing Wash and let dry. Material – wash in the washing machine according to instructions or hand wash with the The Pro Hygiene Collection® Makeup Brush & Sponge Sanitizing Wash.
Makeup brushes and all your makeup sponges – for a deep clean, use The Pro Hygiene Collection@ Makeup Brush & Sponge Sanitizng Wash and the to ensure they are germ-free, give them a once over with the Makeup Brush Cleaner (kills 99.99% of germs – proven independently by the way). It’s easy to forget the sponges in compacts for powder, foundation and even eye shadow. Follow the How To Use instructions.
Having thrown away out of date mascara and other makeup products, start with a good clean up of the packaging. It’s amazing how much dirt is transferred between product cases and your makeup bag and fingers.
Then get sanitizing with The Pro Hygiene Collection® Antibacterial Spray and remember, once sanitized and killing 99.99% of germs, your makeup will maintain it’s clean state until you start using it again. It’s a bit like moth-balling your makeup, so you can put away your favourite summer bronzer knowing it’s not going to turn into a blob of germs next spring. Just remember to follow the instructions. See our easy downloadable guide here or see our story with the instructions on line.
And, don’t forget, if you are sharing you makeup and makeup brushes, then beware as you are not only potentially catching a nasty infection, but also passing on something to your friend. Just say no! Clean hands, clean products, clean makeup and tools is Clean Is Beautiful® way.
