Did you know…
1. …that bristles can cause bothers & bumps?
Reactions can happen when your skin comes into contact with something that irritates it, such as with common allergens like parabens, lavender, tea tree oil, lemon, etc. Sometimes, rough surfaces like certain towels or clothing can cause reactions. Prickly things like the ends of your hair and some brush bristles can irritate skin, causing rashes or, if the irritation is in the pore and becomes infected, acne.
2. …you need to watch the leftovers?
Not all products wash off well and residue can build up over time…another good reason to use makeup and brush cleaners without allergens or comedogens.
For daily cleaning, try our new Instant No-Rinse Hypoallergenic Brush Cleaner. Once a week, wash brushes with a hypoallergenic shampoo like Essence Skin-Saving Superwash (check out How To Clean Your Brushes (Hypoallergenically!) In 4 Steps for a step-by-step guide).
3. …brushes can be patch tested?
In addition to being incredibly soft — which helps prevent contact acne and irritations from harsher bristles — our Skintelligent Beauty Brushes are patch tested for skin safety. We decided to spread that kindness around. Each brush features animal-kind, synthetic bristles on environment-friendlier bamboo. They harm no one: not trees, not animals, not your skin.
4. …safer doesn’t mean less pretty?
What’s the point of skin-safer brushes if they don’t perform? Seriously fierce makeup artists took each brush to task — the only “animal” testing we’ve ever done — on everything from simple day applications to highly conceptual looks for professional photo shoots. Each brush gives you expert control, great color pickup, precise placement and superb blending.
