Is it Safe to Wash Your Makeup Brushes With Baby Shampoo?

When it comes to makeup application, brushes and tools are sometimes just as, if not more important than the makeup you are using itself. Better yet, the care and cleaning of them is more important than both combined together. Makeup and brushes are two things you’ve probably invested in, so taking care of them is essential. Many people are under the impression that because baby shampoo is safe for babies, it’s safe and gentle enough for makeup brushes, but this couldn’t be further from the truth… Just like how you wouldn’t wash your dishes with hand soap because it is anti-bacterial, or just like how you wouldn’t rub chili powder over your skin just because it’s an edible food item, you shouldn’t wash your makeup brushes with baby shampoo.

Makeup brushes are usually made out of bristles that are either natural or synthetic, natural bristles are usually made from animal hair. As you can guess the genetic make up and compound of both synthetic and animal hair is much different than the hair on a humans head.

The top three reasons you shouldn’t use baby shampoo to clean your makeup brushes:

Dandruff Solutions for Natural Hair

I usually don’t like to talk about specific products I use because I don’t think they are what is really important. However, one product that has made a noticeable difference in my hair has been the Terrensentials Lavender Garden Hair Wash.

Although I used a (sulphate-free) shampoo every time I wash my hair, I would notice that I still had flakes in my scalp. I tried various products that just didn’t work. The Head & Shoulders left my hair feeling very stripped and straw-like. The ACV was a pain to use and it smelt really bad. Neither products made much of a difference to my scalp.

The only product that made the difference for me was the Terresentials Mud Wash. Not only does it effectively clean my scalp, but it leaves my hair feeling soft and conditioned. I can’t say that this will work for everyone, but it has been great for me so I thought I would share it with you guys!

How I use the product: I use the mud wash in combination with my regular sulphate free conditioner. I mix the mud wash with water in an applicator bottle and pour it all over my scalp and hair. I massage it in for a few seconds, then rinse it out. I follow with a co-wash. 

(NB: I was not sponsored by Terresentials to write this post, and I bought these products myself!)

There are a few things in this world that never mix well: diets and French fries, happy hour and texting your ex, and until now, oil and self-tanner. Although oil usually breaks down DHA (the coloring agent in self-tanner), St. Tropez, the gold (er, bronze) standard of sunless tanning, has done the unthinkable by combining the two notoriously incompatible ingredients in a cutting-edge new body bronzer. With the latest technology, this elixir conditions skin, leaving it hydrated and supple, while delivering a healthy tan. Below we break down the breakthrough self-tanner. RENEE TRILIVAS

THE FORMULA
This refined dry oil—which took two years to perfect—sinks into skin without a trace of greasy residue. With a unique emulsification process that blends oil and water in a single phase, this self-tanner formula ensures an even distribution of DHA and hydrating oils for a uniform glow.

THE BENEFITS
Packed with conditioning Brazilian nut oil, this advanced bronzing elixir quenches thirsty skin for up to a week. The paraben, sulphate, and phthalate-free solution is also loaded with protective antioxidants like vitamin A and E that shield skin from free radical damage.

THE SCENT
Spiked with a trio of essential oils, this self-tanner leaves behind the fresh fragrance of neroli, lemongrass, and grapefruit.

THE TAN
With a 100-percent natural DHA, this lavish formula produces natural-looking color that lasts up to ten days. Plus, the formula is flecked with bronze pigments for an instant sheen that helps guide color application.

THE APPLICATION
After exfoliating, buff this luxurious oil into skin with the St. Tropez Tan Applicator Mitt for lasting moisture and streak-free color.

THE TIP-OFF
Accentuate your tan by dabbing a shimmery highlighter onto your cheekbones, collarbone, and shoulders for a dewy, back-from-the-beach radiance.
