REAL TECHNIQUES DEEP CLEANSING GEL, THE VERDICT


So we've all been there: our make-up brushes slowly getting more and more disgusting and unusable, the bristles separating with the amount of foundation you've built up on your brush over time, and you're still thinking "it's ok, I'll just wash them next weekend." It's very gross yet at the same time, we don't care because it's just such a mission. Well, consider this a possible solution? I've discovered the Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel and I think it might be your ticket to a faster-yet-effective brush-cleaning sesh.

I picked this up around Christmas time, one for myself and one for my other beauty-obsessed friend as a little add-on gift. I knew this was fairly new at the time after watching Emily Canham's YouTube video where I believe it was in a haul? I'm not sure. Anyway, cutting the story short, I am a notorious fail when it comes to cleaning my brushes, so when I saw this designed specifically for such an issue I thought it was worth seeing if this made the task any less bleugh.

...And it actually does to a certain extent! I'd say it takes me much less time than when I use my shampoo, this stuff really gets in those brushes and cleans them super fast. Also, it saves my expensive shampoo, so it's a win-win situation?

I'll be honest though, despite this product giving me the ability to clean my brushes in record time, it still hasn't made me do them any more often than I used to. I mean, I get it done faster when I get round to actually doing it, but I don't think anything will make this task any less irritating for me.

You can buy the Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel from a bunch of the different drugstores (I go for Superdrug), where you can find it costing you anything from £4-£8 depending on the store (for example: in Superdrug it's £4.61 right now and in Boots it's £7.50!). For the price and the effectiveness of this product, and the amount of shampoo saved, I'd say go for it.
