Beauty Review – Real Techniques brush cleansing palette

RT cleansing tray 1

Hi Everyone!

I’m back today to review a product that I eventually got round to trying out after I could delay my least favourite chore no more. Yes, I’m talking about cleaning my make up brushes, and the product in question is the brush cleansing palette by Real Techniques.

I will admit that prior to purchasing and then using this product, I hadn’t actually read anything about it online, it was just something I’d seen on Instagram or in store. In hindsight though, I think that was a good idea as I didn’t know what to expect.

The first thing I noted was that the palette felt completely different from what I had expected. I had thought it would be a hard plasic, but instead it was made of silicone, which is much more durable and ergonomic. As you can see from the image above, the tray has 3 different sized surfaces, meaning you can adapt which part you use depending on the size of the brush you are cleaning.

On the underside of the palette there is a band which you slip your hand through so you are essentially cupping the tray, but without the risk of dropping it. This means you can apply a decent amount of pressure to your brushes to give them a really good clean.

As well as the palette itself, you also get two free sample sachets of the Real Techniques brush cleansing gel, which I decided to use when trying this out for the first time. There is a generous amount in each and I was able to wash 16 brushes with them. I am definitely going to buy some of this separately to give it a good try as my first impressions were pretty good.

This brush was long overdue a good wash, as I’d just been spot cleaning after use (we’ve all been there right?!). I used the middle cross surface, as well as the larger round one and I can honestly say, I don’t think I’ve ever seen my brushes come up so well after a clean! There’s always a concern that palettes like this are going to be gimmicky, but it was well worth investing in this additional tool to keep my brushes in good working order.

Before actually trying out this product I wasn’t convinced that the Ā£12.99 price tag would be worth it, and belive it was a 1/3 off when I did actually make my purchase. I’m so glad I did though and can honestly say I would pay the full price.

You can purchase the Real Techniques brush cleansing palette in Boots and Superdrug instore and online.
