Brush Cleaning Pad, Essential
The patent-pending Artis® Brush Cleaning Pad features an antimicrobial-treated Microfibre Cloth with approximately one million fibre strands per square inch, which help gently grab and remove makeup product residue from the brush fibres. The cloth is removable, to wash or replace.
How it works: The base of the unit is a rigid slip-resistant frame which helps hold the cloth in place so that the user can simply stroke/wipe the brushes across the surface of the cloth to clean and freshen.
“Clearing” or nominal cleaning use: When using mostly powder products, the Artis brushes can be “cleared” from one powder to another by simply wiping the brush tips several times across the dry surface of the microfiber cloth. This action pulls the powder residue from the tips, making the brush ready to accept another powder product for application. This method is particular useful when applying eye shadows and switching from one color to another without the need to completely wash the brush.
“Full” cleaning use: apply a small amount of Artis Brush Cleansing Foam to the surface of the cloth or to the brush fibres. Then stroke/wipe the brush across the antimicrobial microfiber cloth until the makeup residue is transferred to the cloth, leaving the brush clean and sanitized. Reshape the brush and allow to dry.
To replace the cloth: pull apart the top and bottom sections of the Brush Cleaning Pad. The cloth is held onto the top section by an elasticized band. Pull/stretch the cloth away from the top section and discard appropriately. Place a new cloth over the top section by adjusting the elastic until it fits snugly. The loop/pile side of the cloth should face up. Align the top and bottom sections of the pad and push together until the top is snug against the bottom. You should consider cleaning your brushes daily or weekly, and replace the microfiber cloth with an appropriate frequency.
