I was having a little walk around Boots the other day and had seen that Soap&Glory had a 3 for 2 offer on all their toiletry bags and accessories. I had noticed a few people suggesting that the Soap&Glory massage glove (see here) was the perfect thing for a cheaper version of the Sigma brush cleaner. But on closer inspection I thought that the little raised bumps weren't deep enough for brush bristles to go between and get a decent clean. And at €11 I thought that my money could be better spent. I was leaving the aisle when I noticed the Face Massage Mini Mitt for €5.50. As I am one of Those people, I pulled it out and had a proper look, it had more of what I was looking for. And if it was utterly crap, I wouldn't have wasted too many of my pennies.
The long and short of it? It really works a feckin' treat for all my brushes and I'm ashamed to say that they are now the cleanest they've ever been. (Hangs head in shame.) The bigger raised bumps are deep and just perfect to get between the bristles of brushes - especially tiny ones that are so hard to get clean. I'm thinking of lip brushes in particular that you can never get the kind of greasy residue off of.
Its not the most amazing thing for larger brushes, but my foundation kabuki brush still got a much better clean then with just the palm of my hands and some cleaner. I can't say too much about the smaller rounder bumps at the top, they didn't do too much to impress, but none the less they are handy. I'll say that apart from the small size, the one downfall is that the rubber is very bendy so you need to have a good hold of the mitt. However for just over a fiver and mega clean brushes, I'm only splitting hairs here.
But one thing I wondered as I'm only using this for my brushes, is the fact that its actually for your face! I ran it over my skin on the back of my hand and have to say I wouldn't bother with this for cleaning or cleansing my face. It would be way too awkward, time consuming and gimmicky. Soap&Glory need to start marketing this as a brush cleaner mitt and they would sell loads as it works way better! Have a look at it over here, you might want to try it out on your brushes!
