BeautySoClean Makeup Sanitizer & Conditioning Brush Cleaner

The last thing I ever really think about when I’m applying my makeup is the amount of bacteria that could be in my makeup or on my brushes! For a woman that has problematic skin, like me, it is essential that you keep your brushes/makeup as sanitary as you possibly can. Last November when I went to IMATs in Toronto, my mum and I came across a booth called BeautySoClean, which sells a variety of products used for sanitizing makeup… After watching the demonstration and my mum bombarding the poor sales girl with a million and one questions, I decided to purchase both the Makeup Sanitizer spray and the Conditioning Brush Cleaner.
What is BeautySoClean all about?
BeautySoClean is a company that is dedicated in creating products for cleaning and sanitizing makeup. They claim that their products are clinically proven to effectively remove common bacteria from all makeup products within 10 seconds.
The three types of common bacteria that BSC says they can remove are Staphylococcus Aureus (or staff), Pseudomemonas Aeruginosa and Escherichia Coli (also known as E-Coli).
Cosmetic Sanitizer Mist
The Cosmetic Sanitizer Mist is obviously a mist that you spray onto your powder or cream makeup products to remove bacteria that may have been transferred onto the product by your skin or application tools. The CSM will also keep your powder makeup looking new by preventing “glazing” from oils in your skin a skin care products (Glazing is when your powder products have build up, and looks shiny when it’s suppose to be matte). CMS can prevent glazing but will not reverse damage that has already been done.
Direction of Use
Hold Cosmetic Sanitizer and mist from six inches/15 cm away from product surface. Mist once, product will dry within 10 seconds.
Packaging/ Ease of Use
The packaging is very simple. Mine comes in a white 8.5 fl ounce bottle with a generic pump. Has nice and simple packaging with quick and straight to the point directions. Pump is consistent, with good flow. Incredibly easy to use, all it takes is one spray on your desired cream or powder product and you are good to go!
Smell/ Consistency
There is a very mild sent of alcohol, similar to a nail polish remover yet 100x more mild. Once the product has dried there is no visible smell. CSM has the same consistency as water.
Price Point/ Bang for your Buck?
Online: $12.50 for Cosmetic Sanitizer Mist 8ml (0.27 fl. oz) – (Orders delivered in 2 to 3 weeks). This is definitely worth your while! The bottle may seem small, but you should receive roughly 80 sprays from a 0.27 fl. Oz container.
I would say that this product is definitely a winner! It keeps your makeup clean and protects you from harmful bacteria!
*Note* I bought mine at the Toronto 2009 IMATS where they had a booth. They had a special show promotion where you can buy an 8.5 fl. Oz bottle for $25.00! It’s a good idea to check out IMATS if it is coming to your area!
Conditioning Brush Cleaner
Formulated with natural ingredients this is a super efficient yet gentle makeup brush cleaner that will dissolve all makeup residue and will leave your brushes feeling soft and clean. This product is meant for day or day brush cleaning and should not be substituted for a deep cleaner.
Direction of Use
Spray bristles of desired makeup brush with CBC, then take a paper towel and swirl around to remove product. *another great way (if you are more of a liberal type) is to saturate a section of the paper towel with CBC and then swirl the brush around until the colour is removed!
Packaging/ Ease of Use
The packaging is very simple. Mine comes in a clear 8.5 fl ounce bottle with a generic pump. Has nice and simple packaging with quick and straight to the point directions. Pump is consistent, with good flow. Very easy to use, will require a paper towel or facecloth to help remove the product form the brush!
Smell/ Consistency
Has no smell at all and is the same consistency as water.
Price Point/ Bang for your Buck?
Online: $20.00 for Conditioning Brush Cleanser 125ml (4 fl. oz)  – (Orders delivered in 2 to 3 weeks) This is definitely worth your while! This bottle should last you for a few months! I’ve had mine almost a year and use it about 2-3 sprays a day and I would imagine that I have only used 2oz of mine! I recommend this product for anyone who is serious about the hygiene of their brushes!
*Note* I bought mine at the Toronto 2009 IMATS where they had a booth. They had a special show promotion where you can buy an 8.5 fl. Oz bottle for $25.00! It’s a good idea to check out IMATS if it is coming to your area!
Where Can I Buy This?
In Canada, you can purchase these products at the Bay. I am not sure about pricing. Otherwise, the www.beautysoclean.com website ships only to Canada and the US, BUT they have a store locator for most international countries! Make sure to check out the site for more info!
Final Thought…
I am so happy that I came across these wonderful products! Like I said before, as I am a woman who suffers from adult acne, it is key for me to have products that will help remove excess oils off my tools and to sanitize my makeup, so I am not further harmed by dreaded bacteria! No matter the use, whether it is personal or for your kit, it is a perfect edition for any person who wears makeup.
Love,

X
