Review: E.L.F Daily brush cleaner is cheaptastic!!!

I used to be a fingers person, thought brushes were just pretentious as far as foundation application is concerned. But after using Sigma F80 I just cant get over how much better the result is. But the downfall of using brushes is cleaning them and the long long time they take to dry. Its impossible to wash brushes daily and also your brushes wont last long. So I wanted to try out the E.L.F daily brush cleaner, which is cheap and in my opinion does a pretty good job.  I cant compare it to the Mac one as I've never tried it.

Daily Brush Cleaner

 From the website:
An anti-bacterial daily brush cleanser for quick cleaning in-between makeup applications. Disinfects brushes to provide a fresh and clean application every time. Helps to keep your brushes lasting longer for extended use.
Water(Aqua), Alcohol Denat,Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Methylparaben.

Net Weight: 8.5floz (250ml)

Price: $3 or £3.50

As you can see from the photos it does a pretty good job of getting the foundation out. There is still some foundation left in the middle of the bristles but I am not gonna complain about that. It disinfects and cleans the brush after every use in an economic and effective manner, and I can happily deep clean the brush at the end of the week. Some people might not like the smell, though I think that its not disturbing or strong. You cannot smell much of it after cleaning the brush.

There is only one complaint that I have. It doesn't do a very good  job of cleaning my eye brushes, also it makes them kinda dry. It might just depend on the brush hair though.

I feel that if you want to clean your brushes daily and not worry about the drying time and longevity of your brush then you should try out the E.L.F  daily brush cleaner.

My Rating: 4/5

Hmm, I might have to check this out. I love my MAC brush cleanser, but it's so much pricier. I do worry about the eye brush cleaning though...maybe I'll try this for my F80. It's such a fabulous brush, isn't it? :)
