I mentioned that something that is ‘revolutionary’ and ‘patent pending’ just screams my name. Hihi! It just sounds so intriguing. Also, I hate waiting for my brushes to dry and I think the Dry’n Shape will come in handy for me when I travel. I didn’t have it during my recent Europe trip, but I’m happy to announce that I own it now! Below are my thoughts.
The Dry’n Shape System is basically a piece of cloth that looks a lot like a normal brush roll. It’s not though! There are 12 slots with a band that goes around each handle and each bristle section. It is said to not only completely dry your brushes in a fraction of the time, but also reshape them to their original form. I describe the product in more detail here.
I cleaned my brushes with Dawn dish washing liquid and a little bit of olive oil. Left, you see my disgusting brushes, on the picture on the right they are clean. After I was done, I carefully pressed the bristles to remove excess water. Then I put the damp brushes into the Dry’n Shape.
The next morning (I did this late at night before bed), the brushes were completely dry. This was about 6 hours later. The brushes look as good a new with the bristles in their original form.
Do I recommend it?
Yes! Especially if you have expensive brushes or if you’re just extremely fond of your brushes like me. The Dry’n Shape will quickly dry your brushes and most importantly (for me at least), it will keep your brushes look as new. It’s a neat thing to have. Worth the money, in my opinion!
