Lanolin and lanolin based hand and face creams are the best brush conditioners. I use a pure lanolin brush conditioner on my artist brushes. Works great. I learned this from an old school sign painter and pin striper.

Now, Oil Of Olay may be good for some of one's older brushes...

Baby wipes work pretty well to clean hands. Someone told me it was the Lanolin that made them so effective.

*(random grab, I have dozens of Chinex Brushes, and they all look like this. Most of them I float in a bucket of water for a week until I get around to washing them).
All I use is chinex! Love love love them.

I was thinking lanolin might be a little easier to find actually.

I have found that some bristles only work well when fully dried after cleaning. I always use a clean dry brush and leave the cleaned ones for the next day... a little soap when cleaning water based paints helps and always store brushes in their cover(or wrap in a paper towel) to dry

Exactly the problem! If not fully dry, some brushes will do exactly what is shown in the picture. The brush was still wet, even a little moisture causes that.

I use the large tub of the artist brush soap block cleaner (from places like hobby lobby for fine art brushes)- I think its lanolin based. It works AMAZINGLY well for both my paint brushes & makeup (haha).

The best one i found comes in a little round tub and is a pink gel. I forget what the brand name is. Works great.

Does it work for brushes too, or just your makeup?

I think she meant make-up brushes. And yes it works great on my make-up brushes if you have to know. Keeps my back hairs nice and supple too.
