Most make-up brands have their own brush cleansers available, however, it is not necessary to spend a huge amount of money to keep your brushes clean and fresh. If you do not have any make-up brush cleanser, you can wash your brushes using water and mild baby shampoo, or use the recipe below for an awesome DIY cleanser...we just love!
Often using a store bought brush cleanser can often be easier, quicker and more convenient! They are also great for day to day cleaning. However, it is recommend that you give your brushes a 'deep' clean once a week. Here are two amazing brush cleansers we recommend for daily use:
1. MAC Brush Cleanser
Like all other MAC products, this is fabulous. This is an alcohol-based cleaner, and is great for breaking down make-up residue that other brush cleaners often can not remove. This cleanser is really effective, easy to use, and is specifically formulated to prolong the life of your brushes. MAC is available at certain Edgars stores, or you can shop online. This cleanser retails for approximately R170 and we think it is well worth it.
2. Fresh in a Flash
This make-up brush cleanser is made for the awesome Rubybox team, that is based in Cape Town. It is very really quick and easy to use. All you do is spray it on your brush, wipe on a tissue and allow it to air-dry. We love how easily it fits into a make-up bag, so it's a must have for all ladies who travel a lot. At R69,95 it is reasonably priced and very effective. It is available online through the Rubybox website.

The femme fatale ladies
At femme fatale, we believe every woman needs a little bit of spoiling every now and then. So we subscribed to Rubybox to see what its all about. Its pretty easy to do, they ask you some questions about your skin type, hair and normal beauty regime, and then every month a beautifully packaged box, containing a selection of beauty products (some full size and some sample size) arrives at your door.
August was the first month we had subscribed so you can just imagine how excited we were to receive the email saying it would be delivered the next day. It took all of our self control to take our time opening it so we could take some pictures to share with you.
The August box had a few really amazing things inside, we have used them all and wow, we love them all! This is what we received:
We do recommend the Rubybox to all our ladies ... its definitely worth the R169,00 a month, so go spoil yourself!
