Real Techniques Prep & Prime Brush Set

I absolutely love my Real Techniques brushes and recently took in a delivery of my favourite brushes from Sam and Nic which I have a blog post being written about now.  In the meantime, this Prep and Prime Brush Set arrived from Superdrug and I have used it rather a lot, it is an addition to THIS set which I bought last year.

This Prep and Prime set is comprised of four skin prep tools which are designed to be used for your pre-makeup routine, helping to ensure that a smoother skin surface helps the application of makeup.

The first brush within the set is called the Prep Brush and it has densely packed firm bristles which makes it perfect for applying your moisturiser, serum, primer and even face masks.

 I have wanted a brush like this for some time, I use a spatula for applying face masks usually, but since having this brush, have made the switch because it is just so much easier.  I also like being able to use it for the application of other products too.

The second brush is the Dry Facial Brush which I thought was an odd name for a brush until I read its description and then used it.

It has textured bristles which make it great for gentle exfoliation of the skin and I have found it especially useful when you have a dry patch of skin which needs brushing, usually after you have applied your makeup, it settles and then one little piece of skin appears on the surface, with this brush you sweep it away.

The third brush is something everyone should have within their collection and it is the Under Eye Reviver, honestly, it is an absolute godsend.

It features a stationary aluminium ball for a cooling under eye massage and you can either use it with your eye cream, your eye serum or even just on its own with nothing. The coolness of the aluminium ball helps to de-puff and brighten the under eye to give you that more alert look.


The final brush in this foursome is the Lip Exfoliating Brush and I think this is something genius.  I use lip scrubs and have in the past resorted to using an old toothbrush to remove a stubborn piece of dry skin.

With this brush, you use it in circular motions, with your favourite lip balm or even a lip scrub and as you gently rotate it across your lips, it works to remove dead skin.

All of these brushes have fairly long handles with the bottom half being rubberised to make them easy to grip. I am sure you will agree with me that this is one fantastic set of brushes that you didn't know you needed!

You can find this set HERE for £19.99 in Superdrug.  Are you a Real Techniques fan?

  5. These look like really good brushes. I'm ashamed to admit I've not tried any of Real Techniques brushes yet, even though I -always- use their sponge.
