You might have ready my post on how I clean and sanitize my makeup brushes, I plan to update that post soon since I have updated the way I sanitize my makeup brushes. Besides that I decided to show you today not only a makeup review, but also a way that I sanitize my makeup. This is a product that I bought in my local drugstore on sale. As a makeup artist you have to sanitize your makeup products after each client. Many of you know of Beauty So Clean and many of you know that international buyers cannot get their hands on this due to new mail regulations. But fear not, I found a good alternative for this makeup review, say hello to Colour&Clean Makeup Cleanser.
Colour&Clean Makeup Cleanser
One thing I wanted to mention about the Colour&Clean Makeup Cleanser, is that it’s made in Croatia, woohoo! I do support all American, European and Croatian made original products, as much as I can, I support “local” industries. This product is intended for disinfecting all powder and wax products, such as pressed powders, blushes, eye shadows, lip liners, mascara wands and lipsticks and even can be used to disinfect makeup brushes and sponges (aka beauty blender). It comes in a small travel friendly bottle with a mist spray that equally dispenses the liquid out. The bottle contains 50 ml of fluid. I can be used up to 24 months after opening (2 years) and the bottle is recyclable.
Makeup Review Colour&Clean Makeup Cleanser
For this makeup review, I tested the Colour&Clean Makeup Cleanser on my eye shadows, blushes, lipsticks, lip liner… etc. After spraying the powders, I spray the product about 6 inches away from the products surface and only once then I let it dry for a few minutes. I did as instructed and I can confirm that my powders and other makeup products that I used this on stayed intact and the makeup was disinfected and bacteria/germ free to my knowledge. My makeup didn’t change texture or in any other way, but it did get a nice scent of vanilla. In short, one pump is enough for two MAC size blushes.
Colour&Clean Makeup Cleanser VS Beauty So Clean
When I compared this to the well known, Beauty So Clean Cosmetics Sanitizer Mist, which is the same thing at the end of the day, I can confirm the following facts. The ingredients are almost identical, will note them later on in the post. When comparing to the price and amount, here is what I found out. The BSC mist for commercial use comes in a 8 ml purse friendly container at the price of 11 Euros, while Colour&Clean comes in 50ml for 11 Euros, which means that with Colour&Clean you get a shocking 42ml for the same price. I bought my spray on sale for 4 Euros, a steal.
Makeup artist need something in their kit to keep their makeup germ free, this is a good product, which cannot only be used on makeup but can be used to sanitize your makeup brushes too. If you have makeup brushes but are not spot cleaning them after each use then this is a must for your makeup products. This will help keep common bacteria out of your makeup and away from your face, and the best thing you can sanitize your makeup brushes after each use with one spray of this puppy.
Colour&Clean Makeup Cleanser Conclusion
If you have been using Beauty So Clean, then I do recommend say goodbye to it because you get Colour&Clean Makeup Cleanser for LESS. As I wrote, you get 50ml for the SAME PRICE! The only down side there are currently no PRO sizes which Beauty So Clean offers in 250 ml for $25.
** The Colour&Clean also offers the following products, which I have not tried but hope to one day:
- 3in1 Colour&Clean is a universal make-up tool cleanser for makeup brushes and sponges
- Colour&Clean Disinfectant Spray for make-up tools
- Colour&Clean Pro fluid for makeup brushes
