Supercool Brush Tree for Drying Your Brushes!
About two weeks ago I found this package in my mailbox from Benjabelle, a company I had never heard of before. I opened it up and saw it was two “Brush Trees”- one for eye brushes and one for face brushes. I got SUUUPER excited, because I had never heard of Brush Trees, and it’s a really ingenious idea!
Each brush tree has different size holes for your brushes to go in depending on if you get an eye or face one. The face one has 14 holes, the eye one has 24.The holes have these silicon pieces inside that open up but hold your brushes in place.The “Original Brush Tree” aka the one for face brushes has 14 holes, but they’re really big. quite a few of my brushes kept getting slanted (like that one in the back left) so I think you’d easily be able to double up on these with brushes that have normal sized handles.The eye brush tree has 24 holders, but they are much smaller and while you could probably double up on smaller handled brushes, most of mine would be a super tight squeeze to fit two.
The point of Brush Trees is to dry your brushes vertically, so that you don’t get water in the ferrule which can corrode the wooden handle as well as break down the glue, causing your brushes to break.
The Brush Tree also comes apart really easily into three pieces (the base is two pieces) so you can put it away once you’re done using it so its not sitting there taking up valuable counter space.
Overall I think this is a really great idea, however if you are like me and wait until you have no clean brushes left to do a cleaning, this won’t be enough space. If you’re a normal beauty lover with a brush collection that actually makes sense, this is perfect.
Available for $24.95 (eye brush tree) and $34.95 (Face brush tree) from Benjabelle.
