Around a month ago I noticed on Instagram that a new make-up brush cleaner had been invented. After looking into this new and exciting make-up brush cleaner I went onto their website (Stylfile.com) and placed an order for the new and exciting gadget, with then also purchasing a bottle of the matching brush cleanser – as I wasn’t entirely sure on what I should use with it.
The StylPro Make-Up Brush Cleaner & Drier is designed by Tom Pellereau, who won the Apprentice.
As well as the StylPro Make-Up Brush Cleaner, ‘inventor Tom’ has also invented the S-shaped nail file and the Stylfile Gel Remover Kit.

Within the video I’ll show you how the StylPro Make-up Brush Cleaner & Drier works, along with before and after shots of my brushes!
Up to now, I’ve used my StylPro brush cleaner a numerous of times and I must say that with each time it becomes easier and quicker to use. Since using this each and every time that I’ve cleaned my brushes, I have found to ABSOLUTELY love this product, it without a doubt has become such a necessity within my life – I honestly don’t know how I managed without one of these before! As this saves SO much time and effort, it literally cleans a dirty, make-up embedded brush AND dries it within 60 seconds!!! I just can’t quite express how good this product really is.. but what I can say is that before purchasing this my Urban Decay Optical Blurring brush was gross, I mean it wasn’t dirty but it was definitely make-up embedded and stained. Nothing I did seemed to touch it, the bristles were a light orange in colour and that was that. Then, as if by magic! I used my StylPro Make-Up Brush Cleaner to clean this brush and it literally cleaned it back to the appearance it was when I first purchased the brush! Yes, this has one or two faults but honestly I could not recommend this product enough to those of you who love make-up, who like to invest your money into beauty products or for those of you who just like a gadget! Now of course, I wouldn’t be a very good blogger if I didn’t tell you the negatives to this product because I have found just a few. Firstly, the rubber collars that you fit your brush into (if you watch my YouTube video, you’ll understand what I’m on about), are very oddly shaped and by this I mean that the bigger shaped ones seem to be just that too bit big for the majority of my brushes.. meaning I have to squeeze them into the next size down which actually turns out to be a bit too small – confusing I know, all I mean is that because it is that bit smaller it makes them fit very tight and with being so tight it makes them difficult to take out of the rubber collars. With that the only other negative I have found is that it can make quite an annoying vibration noise when in use but seriously nothing to stop you using this product overall. As for the brush cleanser (which you use a cap full of each time), I have found on average it cleans around 15 brushes before needing to be changed to fresh. I personally would be happy to repurchase this product as it leaves my brushes VERY clean and smelling hygienically fresh, the only issue I can think of is that you will need to purchase this online which sometimes can be a bit of an issue regarding delivery timing etc. – if you need it ASAP that is! Other than this you can use baby shampoo but also any other cleanser, such as the RealTechniques brush cleanser I would also say would be fine to.
What do you think to this product, would it make your life easier?
