Dr Bronner's Pure Castile Liquid Soap - Cleaning my Make up Brushes


I don't have a huge amount of make up brushes (and probably don't clean them as often as I should I am ashamed to say!) I tend to wear eyeliner and mascara every day and only occasionally eye shadow - hence my small collection of brushes.  I love the Dr Bronner's range of liquid soaps - my current favourite being the peppermint scent.

Make up artist Jodie Hazlewood says "I love Dr Bronner's soaps to clean my make up brushes with especially the peppermint soap which leaves them smelling clean and fresh.  The easy travel size is perfect for when I'm on the run too.  So many women forget to clean their make up brushes, but it is such an important part of maintaining healthy looking skin".

I was sent Peppermint* and Rose* Dr Bronner's Magic Pure Castile Liquid Soaps to clean my make up brushes with.



I dampened my brushes and then put a small amount of the soap on the bristles of the brush and lathered them up swirling the brush in the palm of my hand, rinsing and repeating until the brushes were clean.

Rub gently with a towel and then lay flat to dry.  They look like brand new brushes now and smell so fresh. I must make this a weekly routine task as its so easy to do.


I love that the Dr Bronner's soaps have 18-in-1 uses.  You can use as a body wash, for your hair, your teeth, to clean your make up brushes, for cleaning your home, laundry to washing your pets and car.  The list is endless!  Scents available are - Peppermint, Lavender, Rose, Eucalyptus, Citrus, Almond, Unscented, Baby Mild, Tea Tree and Green Tea.

Great value at £1.99 for 59ml and £5.49 for 236ml.  The Green Tea scent recently won the best organic launch at the Pure Beauty Awards.

How do you clean your make up brushes?

  3. I use Dr Bronner too! I got some way back when in a Glossybox and it was just perfect for the brush cleaning job and have stuck to using it ever since :)

  4. I love Dr Bronner, but I use Body Shop ginger shampoo to clean my brushes. I'm not sure why, but it smells like and works well! I might switch though, once it runs out.

  5. I love multipurpose products and have been wanting to try these for a long time- I would definitely pick the peppermint! I use antibacterial washing up liquid to wash my brushes as it kills all the bacteria and rinses out well! And is cheap!x

  10. Interesting post Sandra. I'm going to look at these soaps now. At the moment, I just use a drop of shampoo and hot water to clean my brushes, both make up and hair varieties.
