I didn´t only hate it because of the amount of time it took.... i also hated it because i was either washing them by twirling them in the center of my palm *which had an unsettling tingling feeling*, or washing them with a brush egg *which was too small and took off a ridiculous chunk of time from my day*.
In my review of the brush egg HERE , i mentioned wanting to get a brush mat. Well, i did get one eventually, and now let me rephrase my previous statement...... "I used to hate wash-days" .
This mat has made wash-days a lot easier, and much more bearable!
It is a dupe for the Sigma wash mat.
Errrrrr.....it was smaller than i expected, but i liked the fact that it has different kinds of ridges for different functions....The heart-shaped ridges for washing face brushes. The ´X-shaped ridges for washing eye brushes. The dash-lines ridges for rinsing the face brushes. The wavy-lines ridges for rinsing eye brushes. The dotted, straight-line and the spiral ridges for refining the brushes *whatever that means*.
|A closer look at the ridges|
I´m just glad that i don´t need to hold the mat in my hands...it has small suction caps or whatever they are called which help to stick the mat on any surface. So i just stick it to the insides of the sink and then wash my brushes by twirling them on it *after adding brush shampoo to the bristles of course!*.
This mat is smaller than the Sigma mat, and it seems like it only comes in purple. I really like it, and it has made wash-days much more bearable for me *ok, i already said that*.
WHERE TO BUY
Have a good night.....
