Two years ago, The Company Who Shall Not Be Named released the Sigma Spa® Brush Cleaning Glove that I learned about from one of my fave YouTubers MakeupByTIffanyD. (Love her, holla to my fellow Atlantans.) At the time I thought, “This is genius. Why didn’t I think of this?” Seriously why was I giving myself raisin hands when THERE’S A FREAKING GLOVE?! Awesome, right?
Then I saw the price.
Holy shiz. $40 (currently $35) for a plastic glove. Nooooooo ma’am. My mama raised me better than that.
Although, to be perfectly honest, I almost caved a few times because the idea was so smart and would make one of my least favorite chores much simpler.
Next, I saw Wayne Goss (Iloveyou. WillyoupleasemovetoAmericaandbemybestfriend? Kthanksbye!) and his always refreshing and realistic point of view discussing the fact that The Company Who Shall Not Be Named basically repackaged an oven glove.
So I spent a year scouring aka looking whenever I remembered for a plastic, textured glove and finally found this beauty at Wal-Mart for a whopping $4. Now, I can’t say that it works as well as the varying textures of the other glove, but I can tell you my brushes are still clean and it made my wallet much, much happier.
And I can say, “Suck it, Sigma.”
Did you cave and spend $35/$40 on an oven glove? How do you clean your brushes? Better question, how often do you clean your brushes? Let me know in the comments below!
