Sunday’s are meant for three things; relaxing, deep cleaning and preparing yourself for the week ahead. Although Monday is in sight, I rather enjoy Sundays. Once I’ve sorted out my room, make sure all my clothes are washed and prepared my dinners for work, it’s then onto my favourite part – cleaning and relaxing.
I know you’re probably thinking I’m crazy for thinking cleaning is fun, right? But I find putting on fresh bedding and cleansing my make-up brushes very therapeutic.
Firstly, I start with my room making sure that my house bunny, yes she lives in my room, is all cleaned out, and then as soon as I’ve dusted and hovered it’s onto the bathroom. There’s something satisfying about running a bath on a Sunday afternoon with my favourite bath bomb, and setting up my little cleaning station for my brushes.
Lately, I’ve been using the Pro Hygiene Collection* from 25o, to clean my brushes and my face. What I love about this collection is there’s a make-up brush cleaner and a make-up sponge wash, so I can get both my brushes and beauty blenders squeaky clean.
I like to physically wash my brushes rather than spray and wipe, so after a few squirts and a rinse under some hot water it only took a matter of minutes to wash my full collection. I find sometimes that my foundation can be really stubborn to remove, so it usually takes a lot of cleanser and rubbing to get it out completely, however I found with the Pro Hygiene Collection it dissolved instantly.
Once they’re dry, thanks to this collection, they don’t leave a greasy residue, which I’ve known to have with other brands. Plus, they have a gorgeous fresh, lemon clean kinda scent to them too.
The make-up sponge cleaner really impressed me, as once I use my beauty blender I know it’s never going to be that shade of orange again. However, after just a couple of drops of the make-up sponge wash the foundation melted away, it actually looks brand new again!
Once my brushes are all clean and left to dry, it’s time to remove my own make-up and jump in the bath. Now, I’ve tried make-up wipes and cleansing waters and they just don’t do it for me. In fact I found the cleansing waters really stung my eyes and skin, but I’ve been absolutely lovin’ the Pro Hygiene make-up remover.
Simple and effective. After a few drops on a cotton pad and a few wipes my mascara and eye make-up is completely washed away. It really surprised me how easy this product takes off dark eye make-up, as normally this results in a huge pile of pads or suffer with panda eyes until I wash off the rest in the bath.
Anyways, once all my make-up is off there’s only one thing left to do – jump in my bath with a glass of wine and a book, and completely chill out, anyone else agree?
What are your Sundays like? What make-up brushes cleaners do you use?
