Makeup Hack; Brush Cleaner

Specified brush cleaners can be expensive. There is an option to make your own DIY brush cleaner, however, I got a hack for that will save you that trouble. It is not so much a hack as it is a finding you may appreciate.

I am sure you are all familiar with Daiso, the Japanese store selling many home improvement items. They do sell cosmetics too and if you browse through the skin care section you’d find something called cleansing water.

Use this as the brush cleaner! It is as simple as that.

I would personally never put a MYR 5 cleanser on my face. So I put it to good use.
