Where to buy Real Techniques Brushes in India?

 

Hi everyone!

I get a lot of queries about Real Techniques brushes so I thought of doing a quick post about these. I love using these brushes and I used to get them shipped to India from iherb.com. However you need a credit card to place an order, pay international shipping fee and face the risk of packages getting stuck at customs. Luckily now, we have 2 more options to purchase Real Techniques products in India!

NEW! Inglot PRO Blending Sponge

 

INGLOT Pro Blending Sponge is a multi-purpose sponge that is ideal for blending and carefully shaped for precise application. The pointed end of INGLOT Pro Blending Sponge can be used to cover blemishes, spots, or hard-to-reach areas of the face, while the rounded area should be used for larger portions. Use with any of Inglot’s liquid or creamy products to achieve a perfect complexion with ease. 

When wet, the applicator increases in size, tends to absorb even less product and ensures best application results. It’s hypoallergenic and latex-free. The Pro Blending Sponge is priced at Rs 1400.

[note color=”#FFE4C4″]This sounds exactly like the Beauty Blender (and looks like it too!). But the price point is a little higher than the Beauty Blender which retails for $19.95 (approx. Rs 1200). But since the Beauty Blender isn’t available in India, this could be a good option to go for. I haven’t personally tried this so can’t say if its just as good as the BB or not. If you’ve tried this out, let me know your review in the comments below! [/note]

Always store the brushes upright or flat

Never store your brushes facing down i.e bristles facing down otherwise the shape of the brush will get completely destroyed. You can store them laid out flat in a tray/box or upright (bristles facing up) in a stand. I generally use pen stands on my desk for keeping my brushes – they are easy to reach everyday!

 

Regular Washing

Brushes accumulate a lot of bacteria and germs and must be cleaned regularly! If you have breakout prone skin, then it is all the more important to clean everything that touches your face. Because microbes flourish in damp and warm environments, foundation/concealer brushes are more prone to bacterial buildup. Dirty brushes that can lead to eye infections, breakouts etc. so clean your brushes every week and if possible more often.
