Yesterday I received a package in the mail, containing a great product called The Brush Guard! What it does is protect your brushes when travelling, aids you when drying your brushes and makes your brushes easier to grip when they become slippery. Sounds great right?
I had read and heard so many good things about this, I instantly felt like this was a product for me, I just had to get it! To me my brushes are sacred and when I’m travelling, going to my boyfriends or when on holiday, I’m always scared my brushes will get dented, squashed or damaged in my bag. Now I don’t have to worry any more cause this product will keep my brushes safe and protected.
They sell this Variety Pack at their website for just $5,50 (€4,30) and shipping to Europe is $3,00 (€2,30) so it isn’t that expensive, worth every penny cause buying new brushes if they get damaged while travelling will be a lot pricier, not to mention sad!
A Variety Pack contains these six brush guards:
♥ 1 Shadow or Liner (extra small)
♥ 2 Blush or Shadow (small)
♥ 2 Foundation or powder (medium)
♥ 1 Powder or Kabuki (large)
Here’s what they look like on your brushes.
The product itself is a breathable sheet of (I think) nylon, it is soft yet very sturdy as it’s woven. (The nailpolish I’m wearing in this picture is Sun Worshipper by China Glaze, review on that coming soon so keep your eyes open for it!)
Another amazing feature of the brush guards is that they are an amazing aid in cleaning and specifically drying your brushes. A few days ago I was cleaning out my brushes, something you really have to do regularly as they gather so much product after a while, not to mention dirt and bacteria! The easiest way of cleaning them is just using water and baby shampoo, never turn them upside down while washing cause water and soap are a nightmare for the glue that holds your brush and bristles together. Normally I dry them lying flat on a towel, but even then water can still find its way to the glue and it will ruin your brush. Drying them upside down would be the best way, without a doubt. Impossible I thought, now I can! Just slip the brush guard over your brush, and place them in a glass, this way they can dry upside down over night and gravity will pull all the moisture down and out.
I think this is a brilliant invention and really recommend you to invest in it if you value your brushes. It is a lifesaver!
