Brush Pearl Ultrasonic Makeup Brush Cleaner – Review

 

Cleaning makeup brushes is an essential part of makeup. Dirty brushes can cause all sorts of skin break outs. I am actually pretty good at deep cleaning my brushes. I deep clean my brushes at least once a week. BrushPearl™ is the world’s first tool that automatically cleans and freshens your make up and cosmetic brushes with ultra sonic technology.

 

 

Product Info

  • Cleans with ultrasonic technology and no damaging friction to your brush investment.
  • Cleans with a three step process of wash, rinse, and dry cycles.
  • First time cleaning in Brush Pearl may require two cleaning cycles at the longest setting due to buildup. After that, a weekly one cycle cleaning is recommended.
  • Brush Pearl Cleaner includes a 4 ounce sample bottle of Brush Pearl Cleanser.
  • Cleans all brands and shapes of brushes including skin (i.e. Clarisonic ) and kabuki style brushes.

 

Timer Settings
One of the features I really like is that you can set a cleaning timer depending on how dirty your brushes are.

  • 3 minutes for normal cleaning
  • 5 minutes for dirtier brushes
  • 8 minutes
  • 10 minutes
  • 1.5 minutes

 

 

Brush Pearl states that heavily soiled brushes need several washes. I cleaned one of my more dirty brushes which was my blush and setting powder brush and the brush pearl did a great job cleaning it with only a single wash. However my eyeshadow brush that wasn’t heavily soiled still had remnants of product on it which is a bit odd. 

When the cleaning cycle is completed, you can leave the brushes in place and open the lid and pour the dirty water in the direction shown with the arrow on the unit.  It’s important to avoid pouring it over the front of the brush pearl where the control panel is located.

It’s now time for the rinse cycle. Refill the tank with warm water and set the timer for 3 minutes.  Again dump the water out and let the brushes dry in place.

Now it’s time to discuss my issues with the brush pearl. Quite simply there is just too many steps involved from filling the tank, getting the brushes to stay in place, dumping out the dirty water, refilling the tank to rinse the cleaning solution out of the brush and letting them dry. I can easily deep clean 50 brushes in the time it took to clean a few in the brush pearl. Also I personally reshape my brushes and you can’t do that very easily with the brush pearl. Brush Pearl also says they don’t use friction to clean the brushes but it’s very important to use a little bit of friction. I use the brush egg which uses friction and friction just removes product from makeup brushes a lot more effectively. Essentially by using the brush pearl to clean your brushes your just letting brushes sit in water for a certain length of time. 

The Brush Pearl cleaning solution is great. I have used it to clean my brushes by hand and does a fantastic job getting my brush super clean. I highly recommend their brush cleanser.

What I Like

  • Beautiful design
  • Cleans lightly soiled brushes easily
  • Cleans beauty blenders and kabuki style brushes
  • The Brush Pearl liquid cleaner is fantastic and does an amazing job cleaning the brushes

What I Don’t Like

  • It becomes too much work using this product if you have lots of brushes to clean
  • Securing the brushes in the slots is very frustrating
  • Having to add new water to the tank for the rinse cycle adds more work and time to the process
  • I can get my brushes just as clean if not more clean by washing them by hand

Overall the idea is great but the execution isn't practical especially if you have hundreds of brushes to clean. I don't like all the steps involved in cleaning a few brushes, also the slots where the brush stand is doesn't accommodate a lot of my brushes.

  • Yasmin

    I happen to agree with you this seems like a lot of work to clean brushes.

    • Yes it’s takes quite a bit of time. Not very practical if you have a lot of brushes to clean.

  • It a great invention.. but it seems like a bit of work. Thanks for sharing tho

  • Cleaning brushes is a big task for me and this equipment does not seems to making it any easier.

    • This definitely does not cut down on the time it takes to clean brushes.

  • Jackie Harrison

    Amazing review I watch the video and to be honest I agree with you washing by hands is faster this looks like to much work. In my case by the end of the week I have a ridiculous amount of makeup brushes to wash and this gadget will wash a few at a time I be there all day lol.

    • Yes unfortunately it is time consuming. I can easily hand wash the brushes quicker.

  • If it doesn’t cut the time and effort compare to washing brushes with hands then it is not a great tool for such price. You did great review.

    • I think a few design changes would make this a great product that actually saves time.

  • Missy May

    Looks so posh, but yeah sure looks like time consuming. Great review as always.
    Enjoy your weekend. 🙂

  • Ivana Džidić

    it seeems like a good product but the problem seems to be that it must be a bit time consuming, especially if you have a lot of brushes to clean…I mean adding new water and securing every brush must take a while.

    http://modaodaradosti.blogspot.hr

    • I totally agree. Attaching my brushes was not easy and reshaping them can be challenging as well.

  • Jamie RS

    Great review! these products looks great and sounds amazing! I would love to try these:) Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Simera, I think for the cost it’s not worth it… sometimes items that are supposed help us end up consuming more of our time and energy xox ♡

  • Very cool, but a little expensive. Perhaps more for someone who is a professional makeup.

    • I agree but it would be a lot of work for a professional.

  • Does not look very impressive…I prefer washing brushes with hands 🙂 But someone with lots of brushes might find it helpful.

  • This doesn’t sounds promising at all, I think I’ll stick to washing the brushes myself.

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

  • Thanks for your honest review. I personally think that it is too expensive. And all the work you have to put in is not worth it.

  • I saw this a while ago! I don’t think i have enough brushes to make this purchase worth it.
