Did you know that not cleaning your makeup brushes for a long period of time can allow a build up of bacteria and cause breakouts? Keeping your makeup brushes clean atleast once a week will help your skin stay clean and help your brushes last longer. Today I wanted to blog about the Makeup Revolution Antibacterial Brush Cleaner, I’ve been using it for a little while now, and I thought it was worth sharing because the brush cleaner works so well for me.

A little about Makeup Revolution…

Makeup Revolution is a budget UK makeup brand, owned by TAM Beauty, that offers a wide variety of makeup and brushes. The brand launched in 2014, offering affordable high quality makeup and dupes of expensive high-end makeup – to top it off the entire range is 100% cruelty-free and some of their products are actually vegan.

The brush cleaner is specially formulated to keep makeup brushes clean and free from bacteria, the spray sterilizes and disinfects makeup brushes. To use the brush cleaner, you just need to spray the antibacterial brush cleaner 3 to 4 times directly onto your makeup brush and then gently wipe the brush across a clean tissue or cloth, to remove any makeup and bacteria, until brush is completely clean. Once clean, the makeup brush will need to be air dried. I bought the antibacterial brush cleaner online from the Superdrug website for £5.00 (for 200ml).


The antibacterial brush cleaner works like a charm for me, the spray itself generally has a gentle clean smell, you can smell the witch hazel in there too. Instead of using a tissue or cloth to wash the brushes, I used a towel simply because I’ve generally found that a towel doesn’t break or get too wet when using the cleaner, plus I can wash the towel and resuse it to wash my brushes. I thorougly enjoyed cleaning my brushes with this brush cleaner, it’s such a simple process and my brushes look just how they did when I bought them.

It generally took around 10-20 minutes for the brushes to dry, depending on the size of the brush, which is great if you’re planning on reusing soon after. The smell of the brush cleaner does stay with the brush, even when dry, but that didn’t really bother me so much since I liked the smell of it.

The only thing that I would say should be improved is the bottle as it’s kind of difficult to tell how much is left and whether I need to buy more. Other than that, I feel that using the cleaner is an important part of skincare that tends to get overlooked. Scroll down to see the pictures!

Before using the brush cleaner … (yes I know they’re filthy lol)

Just look at the amount of makeup that’s come off…
