There are many times in life where you might find yourself in the infuriating situation of having things stuck under your nails. It might be that you've just applied fake tan without a mitt (tut tut), or you've been scrubbing a floor, or maybe like me you've been attempting to fix a car that doesn't want to be fixed (engine grease is VERY stubborn).
There's normally only one solution when it comes to removing unwanted nail dwelling particles and that is scrubbing with a nail brush. But have you ever thought about how hygienic your nail brush actually is? Numerous hand washing studies show that our fingernails are where the most bacteria remain even after washing our hands. Even after using a conventional nailbrush these bacteria often survive untroubled. Most nail technicians refuse to use them because not only can they not be effectively sanitized between customers, but they are too harsh on nails and get soap residue everywhere!
So what's the solution? Emma Myers (a beauty therapist and former BA Cabin Crew member) has found the answer to all the issues that standard nail brushes pose. She has developed the BRUZZ Nail Brush, which you can see in the photo above.
The BRUZZ cleans the top, underside, and tip of the nail in one action. It had multi-direction bristles which are also antibacterial! The bristles are also impregnated with vanilla extract; which makes them hygienic whilst keeping nails healthy and smelling wonderful! (The smell is one of my favourite things about this product!).
The BRUZZ couldn't be easier to use; just squeeze some liquid soap into the middle channel and rub your nails on the bristles. Unlike normal nail brushes you won't end up splashing water and soap everywhere, and the bristles are shielded so they don't get exposed to the germs and bacteria in the air. The bristles are also removable from the casing so you can make sure they stay clean, you can even put them in your dishwasher!
It's perfectly safe to use on all types of false nails as well, and won't damage your nail art. Children will be able to use the BRUZZ with ease as it's easier to hold so they won't end up dropping it with their slippy hands.
Due to the design of the BRUZZ you can also use it to give individual fingers a thorough clean which has been great when I've been trying to remove the aforementioned engine grease!
Since using the BRUZZ there's no way I'd want to use a conventional nail brush again, and I'm sure you'd feel the same way! It comes in blue, pink & white. It's available from Boots and costs £9.99 (more expensive than a normal brush but it is better and will last longer).
Do you use a nail brush? Have you ever considered how hygienic it is? Let me know!
Stay safe, x
