After an appointment with my esthetician, we discussed my breakouts and oily skin as well as factors that may be causing it. "Do you wash your make-up brushes?" Is the one question I will never forget her asking....clean my makeup brushes? No....of course not! As we continued to discuss how bacteria will live in these brushes causing skin problems each time I use them I became determined to find the best brush cleaner I could. As a habitual user of Clinique products I immediately went to their website in hopes of finding a product that would do what I needed to do. After reading several reviews from others who have tried the Clinique makeup brush cleaner, I decided to order it. 2 years later I am still using this and I have nothing but good things to say! My brushes come out like brand new once I've used this to clean them, not only clean but the brushes feel softer to the touch!
