Stylopro Makeup Brush Cleaner Dupe Review

A year or so ago there was a massive hyper around the Stylopro makeup brush cleaner which allowed you to clean and dry your brushes in no time at all. If you use make up a lot you will know how much of a chore cleaning your brushes can be for me it is a task which I always put off. I think the reason behind it is due to the fact that that it takes so long for your brushes to dry.  For me I need my brushed the next day and in the winter they never seem to dry that fast. My mum understood my pain and for Christmas she actually purchased me a dupe of the Stylopro so i could take the hassle out of cleaning my brushes. I think she actually purchased this off either Wowcher or Groupon and she can not remember which one it was.

This comes with a plastic bowl with a silicone seal and splash guard. The real one comes with a glass bowl but for me, plastic is better it means Jess can not smash it. The item also comes with the 8 silicone covers which vary in size meaning that most of your brushes should fit. I am yet to find one which did not actually fit. It did also come with the device which you attach to the cover through a hole in the bottom of. I have found that it is very quick and easy to use which is great as this is supposed to be saving you a lot of time.

It is so simple all you need to do is pick the right cover to fit the handle of your brush add a small amount of brush cleaner or if you are like me baby shampoo.  I add a small amount which is around the size of a 5p into the water. I only have about half a bowl full of water in order to clean the brushes. All you have to do is make sure that your brush is secure in the silicone seal then dip it in the water and press the button on the device for 10-20 seconds. Then I take it out of the water and press the button again for another 10-20 seconds in order to dry the brush. This means that you can have all your brushes clean and dry within a matter of moments.

I have found that this is actually really useful and it makes me want to clean my brushes. I have been cleaning my eye shadow brushes at least once a week and this does clean them very well. You could do this while applying makeup if you did not have enough brushes. Needing to reuse the brush without the colours mixing.  When I saw these I was concerned that they would be not great for liquid products as we all know getting the foundation out of our brushes can be a pain.

Worth The Money Or Not

I think that this product is worth the money which you pay for the dupe I think this is under £20 compared to the Stylopro which is closer to the £40 mark. £40 is not something which I would be willing to pay for this item even though it is great. It has made me clean my brushes more because it is so simple and your brushes are ready so fast. This would be amazing the more brushes you have because obviously the more time you will save. I do not think it is a gimmick product because it does actually work so well. If you can find this product I would recommend it because who doesn’t want to save time it is priceless after all.

Have you got one of these brush cleaners? If so what do you think

Keeping Organised On My blog

Keeping organised is something which I have to do as you know I am a Mummy, Student and blogger. This can take up a lot of time meaning that being organised is key. Today I am going to share how I keep organised on my blog I am thinking about doing posts on how I keep organised in other elements of my life in future posts,

The first thing which I spend a lot of time doing is scheduling tweets. I try and do at least 3 days worth of posts because it means that more of you lovely people are able to read my blog.  I can see a lot of you come from my social media pages. Currently, I use buffer which allows me to schedule all of the tweets along with Facebook.  One thing which I love is that I can use the app which means that I can schedule my social media when I am on the go which as you know is a lot. There is also hootsuite which you can use instead of buffer however, this is not something I have tried.

Planning is something which I have to do because other use I would never be able to get my posts up. I currently have the dot creates ultimate blogger planner. This does have the days of the week and you can write the posts you want to be able to get up. It also has a to-do do list which allows you to tick them off as you have done them which is amazing it makes you feel like are actually getting somewhere which is something.  It also has weekly stats for your social media which is good because I am someone who does not think that I am growing on social media.  This element allows me to see that I am actually growing on a weekly basis. I might do a whole post on my planner and how I actually use it let me know in the comments if this is something you would like to see.
I try and write at least a little bit per day because then it does not feel like it is so daunting when you know you need to get a post up. Some of the posts I write can take 3-4 hours which I do not have time to write in one sitting. I have found that using the app called blogtouch pro is a savour because I can write on my phone a draft. Then when I use a laptop I can edit and add pictures which saves me so much time. I do a lot of the posts sitting on the train which means that it is not time wasted. It does save me looking out of the window a lot of the time.
Taking pictures in bulk is something which I do because it means that I have pictures ready for when I have time to write. Due to the fact that I am hardly at home, it means that I have to take all the pictures on the weekend. I do not have time to get my background out and lights on a night. This also helps me know what I should publish in the next couple of weeks because I already have the pictures so I can post ASAP or schedule it to go live. Scheduling is something which I have to do . I try to make sure that I am a couple of weeks ahead should life get crazy busy it does mean that I have content going up.
How do you get organised if you are a fellow blogger?
