And what do you wash them in? Recently converted to using them routinely and I've got some great brushes. I have been using them for about 6 weeks and thought I need to wash these babies. I could research what i should do but I'm not a believer in doing things As per instructions 1st world rebellion... But I don't want spots!
Off to google Dr Bronner almond liquid soap and bobbi brown brush cleaning spray. I couldn't find the time or motivation to do it more regularly than 6 - 8 weekly. Has anyone left them longer & got skin issues as a result?
I have the Dr Bonner stuff (almond too) as well. I got it in TK Maxx, it was about £3.50 for a decent sized bottle and it really does the job. Way more effective than baby shampoo, although I suppose it's probably not as gentle on the brush fibres. ASOS do it too iirc.
about once every 1-2 weeks for foundation brush, just using liquid hand soap/shower gel and rubbing it in my hands under the tap, usually do it twice to make sure it's clean. blusher brush slightly less often but same method. the foundation brush especially doesn't apply makeup as evenly unless it's clean.
Should've added that I'm prone to breakouts if I don't change my flannel and towel everyday, pillowcase a couple of times a week and the frequent washing of my make up brushes is part of the prevention thing I have going. Seems to work well.
