At the start of the year, I won a Instagram competition* for a years supply of make-up brush cleaning products from Natural Essentoils; a brand creating a range of cruelty-free and vegan friendly products with purely natural ingredients. As you know, I love discovering new ethical brands and Natural Essentoils has certainly been no exception. The selection of products available, including a make-up brush cleaning range as well as pillow and room sprays, are all handmade in the UK. The brand pride themselves on the simplistic ingredients which give maximum results and so far, the service i’ve received has been exceptional…
Both products contain a blend of essential oils, high in anti-bacterial properties, in order to give your brushes the best possible clean. Both formulas are paraben and sls free, and thanks to the 100% natural ingredients, they harness the fragrant aromas of essential oils which make these products smell incredible. The intense scents of lemongrass and tea-tree oils not only leave your brushes smelling gorgeously clean but are also uplifting on the senses too.
Make-Up Brush Daily Cleaning Spray
There is nothing more frustrating than going to use your make-up brushes and wanting them clean to apply a different shade (i’m looking at you eye shadow brushes). This is where the Daily Cleaning Spray really comes into its own, as a simple spritz over the bristles after use, followed by a wipe on a towel or paper towel reveals a clean brush which is touch dry and ready to use on your next make-up application. The great news is that it keeps bacteria at bay until you give your brushes a deep clean, and ensures that you don’t get product build-up effecting the brush performance. As you only use a little spray, I can see this lasting a long time, just like the the natural fragrance which remains on your brushes for the long haul. This is a great product to keep your brushes clean and fresh every time you use the and is the perfect companion to your make-up brush collection.

Deep Cleaning Make-Up Brush Shampoo
I actually love cleaning my make-up brushes yet I get so frustrated when I have to repeat the shampooing process multiple times because the brush is still not clean. On my first try with Natural Essentoils Deep Cleaning shampoo, I was expecting the same repetitive routine however this was certainly not the case. As soon as a small amount of the deep cleaning shampoo hit the brush, it began to work. The foaming solution lathered well over my brushes and rinsed clean with ease. One application cleaned my brushes instantly and left absolutely no residue whatsoever. The true test was clearly not my face and eye brushes, but with my multiple lip brushes which are the bane of my make-up brush cleaning as no matter how much cleaning i’ve done in the past, they never come completely clean. Yet thanks to Natural Essentoils, my lip brushes look as good as new thanks to the amazing formula which cleaned them first time. I cannot stress how good this product is, as it is the best brush cleaning product i’ve ever used. Over the years, i’ve brought so many high-street make up brush cleaners which are expensive and never really do the job they are designed to do. After using this deep cleaning shampoo, I won’t use anything else. It has left my brushes clean, soft and smelling incredibly fresh. I also love the fact that my brushes are free from germs thanks to the anti-bacterial solution. If you hate cleaning make-up brushes, or are tired of finding an effective and affordable solution, then look no further than Natural Essentoils!
Both the customer service and products themselves have been fantastic, and I can’t believe how effective both brush cleaning products have been. I have never used something which is so effective, even on dried on make-up, and love the fact that it is 100% natural. Both products used in conjunction with each other are a winning combination and I cannot try more products from the brand, especially as they progress with their movement away from plastic packaging. It might have been a brand that I knew very little about at the start of the year but I can safely say that after such a positive experience, I can’t wait to see what else the brand has planned for the future!
