StylPro Expert Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer Review

13 July 2018
On route to attend Olympia Beauty last year one of my priorities was to purchase a StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer.
I had read previously read a load of the blog reviews about it and I was certain that I needed it my life.


Anyways with all the excitement of the day I came home minus the StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer.
Oh don’t get me wrong I found my way to the stand, had a lovely little chat with the staff who introduced me to the StylPro Expert Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer which was £20 more but had some added features, as I had set myself a strict £150 budget for the day (which I probably didn’t stick to) so this was a bit of a conundrum for me plus I also was laden with bags and in the middle of a bloggers scavenger hunt that was organised by the Beauty Influencer Awards.

At the time the best solution was to finish the scavenger hunt and then back and make my purchase once I was ready to go home.
Except that never happened bah!

What is the StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer

StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer is a makeup brush cleaning and drying device (Hence the name lol ).

This handy little gizmo uses a series of differently sized rubber tubes to spin your brushes rapidly in a solution of brush cleaner and water.
That description does the StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer absolutely no justice but there are plenty of videos on youtube.

In theory, this is the answer to my prayers, not only will my brushes go from being caked in makeup to spotless in seconds, but I won’t have to wait for ages for them to dry?

Fast forward 8 months and I finally got around to making a purchase am now a proud owner of a StylPro Expert Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer

Initially I was a bit worried about some of my more expensive brushes becoming misshapen, so I decided to give some of my cheaper brushes a try first. I and I was very pleased with the results.


StylPro’s instructions for use
Follow the above 5 steps once a week for amazingly clean brushes and healthy skin:

1.       Select the best fitting collar. There are 8) if you have theStylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer a 10  if you have the StylPro Expert Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer.
2.       Attach the collar to the StylPro device.
3.       For water-soluble makeup (for example blusher, bronzer and loose powder), squeeze a small amount your preferred liquid soap into the bowl. Add water to the bowl until the water level is half the height of the brush bristles.
4.       For non-water soluble makeup (for example foundation), add one sachet (10ml) of StylPro Makeup Brush Cleanser into the bowl.
5.       Softly dunk the brush-up and down in the liquid, pressing the brush lightly into the bowl to open the bristles slightly. Whilst gently pressing the brush down in the bowl, switch on the StylPro. Slowly move the brush up and down for 10 seconds, keeping the brush underneath the liquid level at all times.
6.       Gradually lift the spinning brush out of the liquid (but keep inside the bowl) and leave it to spin above the liquid level. As the brush lifts from the dirty liquid, the bristles will splay out and you will see the water/cleanser and dirt being spun out of the brush. Leave the brush spinning above the liquid. After 10 seconds switch off the StylPro. Your brush will be clean and dry.

Sounds simple enough right?

What I liked about the StylPro Expert Makeup Brush Cleaner
I found it super quick and easy to use with and it did clean my brushes reasonably well however give my foundation brushes a quick spritz with beauty so clean conditioning brush cleaner beforehand as they were especially filthy

What I disliked about the StylPro Expert Makeup Brush Cleaner
I really don’t like that it is battery operated – I’m not a fan of buying batteries at all! Initially, I found it bit fiddly to hold and manoeuvre but eventually got the hang of it.
The brushes did feel dry after use but I personally wouldn’t use them straight away it would probably be best to leave them overnight


what is the difference between the StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer and the StylPro Expert Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer

According to the StylPro website the StylPro Expert Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer comes with the following extras:

·         Tritan™ tip to empty bowl – “Unique, easy to empty 'tipping’ bowl, removes the need to empty the bowl between each brush. Clean your brushes wherever and whenever you need. No sink required.”

·         Multi-brush Collar - Clean and dry up to 8 small brushes at once, saving valuable time.

·         Digital two speed device - Dual speed, dual function device to suit different brush sizes and types. Press once for small or delicate natural hair brushes, twice for bigger brushes. No more guessing when brushes are clean and dry, the digital device automatically times and indicates each step of the process. The device also includes an integrated spindle for greater convenience.

·         10 quick release collars - New collars have grooves, which makes attaching and removing collars from any brush type extremely easy. The collars also come in new sizes, sizes better suited to professional brushes. There are also two UNIVERSAL, star looking collars which fit 95% of brushes tested.



My thoughts:
As I have not used the StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer before I am not sure how much of a difference some of the changes would make. I like that you could choose between two speeds and the timer was defiantly helpful I also like that you can dry up to 8 small brushes at once. I wasn’t overly impressed about the Tritan™ tip to empty bowl as I found that I emptied the bowl into the sink after every use anyway. To be fair I mostly cleaned foundation brushes which were filthy, perhaps if I were using smaller brushes I would use less water and then would benefit more.


Overall I am pleased with my purchase so much so that I would like to gift one of my lucky readers a StylPro Expert Makeup Brush Cleaner and Dryer to try out for themselves.
