Let’s admit it. When it comes to cleaning brushes the majority of us procrastinate — A LOT. Although clean brushes are essential for good hygiene, there’s always something better we could be doing with our time.
Then along came The Brush Egg.
A grooved glove to help scrub brushes back to clean and save time.
My Boyfriend bought The Brush Egg off of Amazon to help me clean my brushes because I have over 60 brushes (this is also why I procrastinate cleaning them). That being said, brush cleaning day on average is a two-day event for myself.
How Did it Perform?
Upon using this product I was impressed –just don’t try it on a beauty sponge (I will get shredded). There are two sets of grooves. The smaller ones at the top are intended for caked on product and stiff brushes. The rest of the body is meant for massaging out the product without damaging the bristols.
I found The Brush Egg best performed for larger brushes such as Kabuki, blush and powder brushes. Smaller brushes did take some effort to clean and I still prefer my older method.
Is There a Downside to the Brush Egg?
Oh boy, you’re going to laugh at this!
Yes, there is a small downside to The Brush Egg and that’s cleaning it. I found this did depend on a few things. The type of products on the brush and the kind of brushes being used on The Brush Egg.
There is a small chance that you will have to give The Brush Egg a wash after use because some product may stick in the grooves.
Would I Buy Another One?
If my Brush Egg ever wear out I would buy another but, so far so good there is no sign of wear and tear.
The price point is great for this product at $2-$3 CAD and it does help with the bigger brushes. It takes very little storage space (less than a can of tomato paste) and is durable enough to travel with.
In fact, there is a new Heart Shaped Brush Egg with 3 groove areas to clean brushes. It seems that it has been improved for shorter brushes.
I’m going to buy it on my next Amazon haul.
