Give Yourself A Break...


I'm going to blame the school date system for this. Burn out. The slump. It's not quite spring, in fact it's still snowing. When can I buy pretty sandals and feel sane in the choice for doing so?

I've always felt September was the life-deciding month. Remember the days when your hardest choice was what new pencil case to choose from WHSmith? 

Because I've noticed the pressure people put on themselves at the beginning of a new year. They become obsessed how this year is going to be 'the one.' Well, great. Make it happen, if you can. But you're only human. And March don't half feel like one massive hump day before Spring...

Upping Your Brush Cleansing Game...



Call me a changed woman, but I'm really not falling for beauty related hypes these days. I've started to hold off from impulse buying, thinking thoughtfully about what it is I'm buying and also holding off for more reviews to see if it's worth the hype in the first place...

How does this relate to the title? Well read on...



Remember last year when everyone seemed to harp on about the Sigma brush cleansing gloves? And then the subsequent dupes, notably all over eBay? Well I didn't really get it. It wasn't an exciting product to me and so I just completely forgot about it.

Fast forward to January. I was purchasing some magnets for one of my palettes that needed a quick fix, and lo - this little beauty was in my recommended feed on eBay (yes, I'm a sucker,) and for the first time in an age - I gave in to that little hyper niggle. I wanted to see if these silicone cleansing mitts actually did improve the cleansing of my brushes.

The Brush Egg is essentially a mini brush cleansing mitt. All for a pretty reasonable 99p.

So far - I'm eating humble pie, this is one of those hypes I'd wish I'd given into a little sooner. With this I can give a much more thorough cleanse of my brushes without damaging them, without adding anything extra to the therapeutic yet mildly time consuming routine. The tiny size means it's perfect for travel too and doesn't look to unsightly hanging around in the bathroom.

All for under £1. Not bad at all.

Have you tried a cleansing mitt yet?
