Sigma Brush Spa Brush Cleaning Glove Review

Sigma Brush Spa 

Brush Cleaning Glove Review

I could not resist purchasing the Sigma Brush Spa, Brush Cleaning Glove after hearing about it and  reading some rave reviews. I could not wait to get my hand on it and in it.;) As much as I am obsessed with anything to do with makeup, cleaning my brushes is one of the things I dread most. So you can imagine my excitement when I came across something that not only made cleaning your brushes look fun, but also promised to make it easier and faster. At that very moment, the clouds parted and the sun began to shine down on me!

The Glove comes in the four Colors above. I chose Blue because
Blue reminds me most of a spa!

Here's the skinny on it from the box:

The Sigma Beauty Spa Glove was specifically designed as a quick, easy and effective method to deep clean you entire makeup brush collection. This revolutionary glove provides a variety of necessary textures and surfaces for removing all makeup from brushes while using only a small amount of cleaning solution. The dual-sided glove provides a complete cleaning process for both eye and face brushes. Patent pending.

The Brush has a soft insert for comfort!

If if you are right handed, and don't want to hold the brushes with your left,
I just flipped my left hand over to do my Eye Brushes and it was still so easy!

There are 5 Easy How-To Brush Cleaning Steps Listed right on the Box:

1.) Wash 
Add a small amount of cleaning solution & water to glove & swirl brush on the 'Wash' texture to begin deep cleaning the brush(es).

This is when you really know its working because you see the soapy water start to turn the color of makeup. I also really noticed in this first step that I used about a quarter of the amount of Brush Shampoo when I was washing than before the Glove. Fab!

2.) Rinse
Place Brush under running water & sweep brush back and forth on the 'Rinse' texture of the glove to remove makeup residue and soap.

You will see all the makeup residue and soapy water mixture rinse off as you sweep back and forth.

3.) Refine
Swirl Brush on the 'Refine' texture of the glove for added deep cleaning.

This was my favorite part. You can really get into the middle of your brushes where product can build up with theses tiny little knobs on the 'Refine'  section of the brush.

4.) Rinse
Place Brush under running water & sweep brush back and forth on the 'Rinse' texture for a final rinse.

This is where you should see the water running clear to know that you cleaned the brushes correct.

5.) Shape
Reshape brush bristles by placing brush head on the 'Shape' Section of the glove while squeezing with your hand to remove excess water.

This step was Great at getting the excess water out and reshaping my small eye brushes. I did have to do some extra reshaping of my bigger shaped brushes (angled, domed, etc,) with my hands. But this was my first time using the glove, so I am sure I will get better at it, and this extra step only took a few seconds to do.

Note: All of the Textures (Wash, Rinse, Refine, Shape) are Labeled Right on the Glove.

My Brushes Before and After:

I cleaned a variety of Face and Eye Brushes of all shapes and Sizes!

Clean as a Whistle!

Even My Sponge is Squeaky Clean!

Final Thoughts:

I think the Sigma Brush Spa Brush Cleaning Glove is pure Genius! I am always looking for makeup tools that save time and energy but still live up to what is promised. Sigma Nailed It! It is everything that it promises to be and more. I wish I would have had this years ago. To think of the time and energy it would have saved me. I cleaned 21 brushes (11 face and 10 eye) and one sponge in 15 minutes. Please remember, this was my first time and I was taking my time to really get to know the Glove and all its magic! I even thought "hmmm, maybe this little bad boy can clean my pro applicator sponge", and boy did it clean it. I would highly recommend purchasing the Sigma Spa Glove, its only going to make your life easier! And who doesn't want that!
