Review: Eco Tools Skin Perfecting Brush

The skin perfecting brush is made from soft, cruelty-free bristles, has a recycled aluminum ferrule and sleek bamboo handle. Achieve a natural look while evening out skin tone with this two-tone brush, specifically designed to smoothly apply BB/CC creams and tinted moisturizers. The angled edge is ideal for precise application around nose and under eyes. 
I have only recently started using BB/CC creams, with my favourite being the Caryl Baker Visage CC Cream with SPF20 and tone adjusting technology. My favourite way to apply this product is by blending a dime size amount into my skin with my fingers. When I received the Eco Tools Skin Perfecting Brush I was excited to see what sort of results it would help me achieve. 

This angled brush is extremely soft, with dense bristles at the base, tapering to less density at the tip. Right off the bat I noticed that I used about twice the amount of product that I normally do, because the brush absorbs so much. With my CC cream costing $31 per ounce I really don’t want to be using it up quickly. After getting over having to apply more product, I did like how this brush applied the cream. I got a flawless application that looked slightly better that if I had applied it with my fingers. So, I guess the upside to using this brush is that my fingers won’t get dirty, and it is more hygienic to use a brush. 

I also tried using this brush with liquid foundation and concealer. This brush was not designed for applying these types of products, so I wasn’t surprised that it didn’t perform all that well. With looser, more liquid, products this brush just sort of pushes it around my skin. 

Overall, this brush does a good job at buffing and blending CC cream into my skin to create a flawless canvas for the rest of my makeup. I am going to try dotting my CC cream around my face and then using this brush to blend instead of applying the product to the brush first. I’m hoping I won’t lose as much product into the brush this way. 

How do you apply your BB/CC creams? With a brush, sponge, or fingers?

  1. I feel like they marketed this wrong. It is best used with creams and thick BBs/CCs (the Asian ones). I actually use this to buff out cream products and it is lovely!

  2. I love this brush! I didn't find it too too bad with liquid foundations, but I've gone back to applying both foundation and BB Cream with my regular foundation brush and using this to buff everything out.

  3. The brush looks so handy and soft- but sorry to hear it absorbs so much of the product. Always a pet peeve of mine!

  4. I have very similar thoughts on this brush - it works well, but I can't get over how much product is absorbs!
