Soap & Glory | Massage Glove for Cleaning Brushes?



Don't judge me yet, let me explain! I'm sure you've all seen that brush cleansing glove from Sigma, it looks like it makes brush cleaning a breeze but the price really put me off and I just couldn't justify it! So when I seen this on the shelves of Boots I whipped it up hoping it would be a good dupe. 

It's not identical to the Sigma one in the way that the Sigma glove has all these different fancy grooves for different brushes and this one is the same all over. But to be honest that didn't really matter to me, I just wanted to see if it would make deep cleaning my brushes any easier. So when I got home I gathered my Johnson Baby Shampoo and my brushes together (lets just say it was definitely time for a deep clean!) and set off on my cleaning mission. I popped a little bit of baby shampoo onto the centre of the glove and just started to swirl the brush in. I had the tap on as I was doing this so I could dampen the brush as I went and to get rid of any excess shampoo that was getting in my way. 

  
This glove is absolutely amazing. I found such a difference in my brushes compared to just hand washing them. It really got down to the nitty gritty bits in the middle that you might not get otherwise. The little grooves really help to get right down to the bottom of the bristles to make sure every last piece of dirt has been lifted. Even though it is obviously a little rougher than just using your hand I haven't experienced any shedding or anything like that so I believe it is still gentle enough to use on your brushes.

It is available online here for €11. I think if you have had your eye on the Sigma one definitely give this a go first!

  1. I've had my eye on brush cleaning gloves for a while but like you I couldn't afford the Sigma one. This one looks like it does just as good a job so I will definitely be picking one up next time I pop into Boots! x

  4. I hate washing my brushes because my hands smell of baby shampoo for ages after so this will probably help x
