    Coastal Scents Brush Shampoo Cleanser Review

    Coastal Scents Brush Shampoo

    It is important to keep your makeup brushes/tools clean at all times. Washing your brushes at least once per week is a great way of maintaining them and it prevents you from getting breakouts. The Coastal Scents brush shampoo cleanses all traces of makeup and impurities from the brush leaving it clean and fresh for next use. I have been using this brush cleaner for quite a while and it sure does stand up to its claims. I have also tried the Olive Oil and Baby Shampoo method of washing my brushes but often times my brushes are very oily and too much of sheen, even when I use the Olive Oil sparingly, this method does help with cleaning my brushes but I hate the after effect.

    Coastal Scents Brush Shampoo Review

    The Coastal Scents brush shampoo is gentle on the brushes and it lathers, conditions and cleanse the bristle and fibers. I like to maintain my brushes by cleaning them once a week. This helps to prolong the life and performances of my brushes while giving me a flawless application each time I use it.


    1.     Apply a small amount of brush shampoo onto wet bristles
    2.     Massage brush against the palm of hands under running lukewarm water
    3.     Rinse thoroughly to remove soapy residue
    4.     Squeeze bristles gently to remove excess water
    5.     Reshape
    6.     Lay flat to dry


    ·         cleanses all traces of makeup and impurities from brush
    ·         small amount required


    ·         the bottle is not compressible
    ·         the liquid is difficult to dispense


    I would definitely repurchase this brush cleaner since it cleanses my brushes very good without leaving traces of makeup and impurities. I found the bottle is not compressible and the liquid was hard to dispense from the bottle I ended up having to unscrew the bottle cap to get the liquid out. The liquid is of silicone texture and it lathers… I hope they add a pump to the bottle or redesign it for easy dispensation.

    How often do you clean your makeup brushes? 

    This practice should not be overlooked, as it is one of the most important things we should do before reusing of makeup tools. Makeup brushes can be a breeding ground for bacteria and natural oils that transmits onto your brushes; every time they come into contact with your skin. Especially if you use them on clients; it is possible that you are picking up germs and transferring them to the skin. Washing makeup brushes should be a regular part of one’s beauty routine; whether by doing it daily or weekly but not monthly. When you use makeup brushes bits of makeup, oil dirt and even bacteria often times get trapped between the brush bristles. Taking proper care of your makeup brushes can prevent clogged pores and pesky breakouts; it also helps to maintain the quality of your brush. So learning how to clean the brushes properly is one of the best ways to protect your investment. 

    Cleaning makeup brushes is very quick and easy. For daily cleaning one can purchase a daily brush cleaner and by spraying it on the brushes after each use will help to maintain the brushes. For once a week, a deep cleaning treatment is required. (Note that brushes will need more time to dry after deep cleaning). 

    Wash your brushes preferably at night and allow them to dry so they will be ready for the next day, or right after you apply your makeup. You just want to make sure you allow enough time for them to dry thoroughly before using.

    Follow these steps to learn how to deep clean makeup brushes

    You will need
    ·         A shallow bowl 
    ·         Gentle clarifying shampoo or baby shampoo
    ·         Olive oil
    ·         Water
    ·         Paper Towel or clean cloth


    1.     Run your brushes under lukewarm water, rinse out all of the makeup residues. Focus mainly on the actual bristles and avoid water to get close to the handle; as this can loosen the glue that holds the bristles.
    2.     Fill the bowl with lukewarm water and add a small amount of shampoo and olive oil then gently swirl the brush tip in the water. You can also swirl the brush bristles in the palm of your hand to work up a lather.
    3.      Rinse the brush bristles under running water and repeat steps 2 and then rinse until the water runs clear from the brush bristles.
    4.     Use a cloth or paper towel to wipe brush clean, and reshape bristles as you go.
    5.     Lay the brushes flat on a cloth or paper towel to dry.

    There are also specially formulated brush cleaning shampoo on the market, that can be purchased online or in stores. A gentle clarifying or baby shampoo will do the trick though.

    Brush Cleaning Tips
    ·         To clean the handle of the brush, use rubbing alcohol to disinfect the handles
    ·         Apply clear nail polish over the numbers or names that are written on the brush, so they will not wear off and brushes will be easier to be identified
    ·         To keep brushes feeling soft use a small amount of conditioner and massage it gently into the bristles, rinse with lukewarm water and lay flat to dry.
