Tao clean makeup brush cleaner review

Even if you are a complete makeup beginner, I am sure you know a brushes’ significance when applying makeup. They are like a paintbrush to a painting; there is no painting; without it, the canvas will remain empty. And judging by the fact that you are here, I am sure you do not want your skin (canvas) to be bare. Even the biggest beginner in makeup might know that the brush’s cleanliness is even more important. And let’s admit it, no one likes their makeup brushes to be stained with the previous product they used on them, but cleaning them yourself can also be frustrating, time-consuming, and you still do not get a good result for all that time and effort you put in.

Well, no need to do all that if you purchase and use the tao clean sonic makeup brush cleaner.

TAO Clean Sonic Makeup Brush Cleaner

Buy on Amazon

If you are not familiar with the company, TAO Clean (The Art Of Clean) is a company based in the stunning Southern California that had taken the world by storm when introducing its unique product called the Aura Clean Sonic Toothbrush. Their inventive and exceptional designs yet still effectively working products are what attracts their customers the most, making them come back for a second buy and recommend the rest to try it out too.

Ok, let’s move on to their product, shall we?

 Easy to follow booklet

The instructions are super easy to understand yet very detailed with pictures. However, at first, you might be intimidated by the futuristic product and slightly complicated instruction booklet, which is so much easier to grasp and comprehensive than most directions, meaning almost anyone can understand and follow them. So, not to worry, once you do it, you will get the hang of how it is all done.

 Speaking of instructions, let’s get to know what they are, shall we?

How to use Tao Clean Sonic Makeup Brush Cleaner?

All you have to do is put the base on a towel, fill it with 1.5 cups of warm water (not tap water if it has lots of minerals) and drop a pod in it, allow it to dissolve for a minute, put the top on, put up to 6 brushes in the slots, strap them in, slide that into the top, plug it in and press the button. Just so you know, the machine makes a lot of noise when operating, and the vibration can cause it to move across smooth surfaces, so don’t leave it unattended while it’s working. Two minutes later, once it automatically shuts off, you have clean brushes! Then proceed to rinse the base out, put warm water in it again, and rinse them (same way, press button, wait two minutes). Lastly, dump all the water out, and dry the base.

After cleaning, an optional drying mode can speed up the drying process and is so much better than air-drying your wet makeup brushes. And by the way, the drying process will be pretty much done the same way the rinsing and washing process had been done, except the drying process will not include water and the pod.

Now, I would like to discuss the soap pods that are included in each box. Yes, the cruelty-free, vegan, laboratory tested and six multi-use Tao Clean Sonic soap pods that are not only free of fragrance but also dyes, and phosphates but even chlorine. They can be too big, so while using the makeup brush cleaner, we suggest you cut it open, use half of it in the device, and maybe save up the other half for the next time you can clean your brushes or use it to clean something else. What? It cleans well and works wonders on the brushes, so why not use it on something else? Are you almost out of cleaning soap pods? Well, there are Replacement TAO Clean Sonic Makeup Brush Cleaner Soap pods available on Amazon. Or you could use some soap or regular eco shampoo; they would do the trick.

What is there to not like? Well, other than it being loud but not to the point of being overly obnoxious, though, and the tolerable vibration. From the system itself being sturdy, easy setup, and excellent results to it working well, I really cannot think of many reasons not to try this product. Let’s not forget to mention that it is super convenient and makes brushes feel softer and cleaner without damaging the bristles or the brushes.


What does each box include?

The customers are provided with a Sonic Makeup Brush Cleaner, 6 multi-use cleaner soap pods, a power adapter, and cable.

Do you change the water/soap out after each set of brushes that go in?

You could use the same soapy water to clean multiple brushes in different cleanings. Or after each set, you can dump out the dirty water and refill with clean, warm water and add another soap pod; it is pretty much up to you.

Does this work on small or travel-sized brushes?

Yes, it fits a large variety of brushes.

Does it come with the cleaning pods?

Yes, it comes with a small starter pack.

Does it come with the cleaning pods?

Yes, it comes with a small starter pack.

Does this also clean oval makeup brushes?

If it fits into the handle inserts, then yes, it can. The Makeup Brush Cleaner can’t clean certain types of brushes like Kabuki brushes because it doesn’t fit into the handle as the brush portals are small.

What size of brushes are recommended for this?

It accommodates makeup brushes that range from 5-18mm in diameter, and from 4-9 inches in length.
