But good for anything other then brushes used for powder, Itried to clean my concealer brush with this, and it was just impossible, doesn't break down oil or any thick products, seeing as I don't use that much powder products and can get better results with dawn and evoo I'll stick to that
This brush shampoo cleans my brushes so well! It actually made my foundation brush look brand new! Despite it being very cheap, I wouldn't buy it again because I can just use dish detergent. Which is just as effective. I wouldn't recommend If you have tons of brushes..for $3 a bottle it is small.
ELF's Studio Brush Shampoo is an "antibacterial brush cleanser for thorough cleansing in between makeup applications. Disinfects brushes to provide a clean application every time. Washes away traces of dirt, makeup, oil, and debris from your brush while conditioning the hairs to provide a clean and soft application for every use." I've been wanting to try this product for a while, but never included it in my ELF hauls, because I was too focused on trying their makeup. I bought my 4fl oz (120ml) bottle at Target for just $3. ELF products can be bought through the brand's website, and in select Targets, Walmarts, Kmarts, Big Lots, and drug and dollar stores. ELF products are cruelty free and vegan friendly. This brush shampoo was made in China.
ELF's Studio Brush Shampoo comes in a recyclable, rectangular, translucent black bottle topped with a black cap with a pop up dispenser. Dispensing just the right amount of product is pretty easy. The name of the product is written on the front of the bottle in white lettering. The back of the bottle offers a description, directions, and a full ingredient list.
This brush cleanser is a clear, viscose liquid. How much you need varies on the size and dirtiness of each individual brush, but usually a dime to penny sized amount will get the job done. This brush shampoo doesn't suds up very well, but that doesn't mean it isn't an effective shampoo. This brush shampoo removes every trace of powder products that may be inhabiting your brush bristles, along with any oily ickiness that might've transferred from your face to the brush during application. Unfortunately, this brush cleanser isn't great at removing every last bit of cream or liquid products. I need to double wash my foundation brush and sponge with this cleanser. ELF's Studio Brush Shampoo rinses out cleanly and leaves my brushes in good condition. This brush shampoo has a light, soapy scent that does transfer onto the brush bristles.
ELF's Studio Brush Shampoo is a cheap, convenient, and fairly effective product. If you mainly use brushes for powder products or only have a handful of beauty tools, ELF's Brush Shampoo is a excellent way to clean and sanitize your brushes. Those of us with a larger selection of brushes, or use a variety of products will go through this brush cleanser very quickly. Whether or not you want to spend $3 on a bottle of brush shampoo every few times you wash your brushes is up to you, but I probably won't repurchase ELF's Brush Shampoo. I'm pleased with how this product performed, and I'll keep this bottle around for convenience, but I think I'll stick to shampoo or dish soap.
Nope nope nope! If I used the brush for powder, this works quite well, but foundation, concealer, lip stick, or anything that's got even a bit of moisture? this doesn't wash it out at all. I noticed that my foundation brushes were getting dyed, and I used a bit of dish soap on them--totally clean, white as new. This really doesn't work all that well, but at least it doesn't stripe moisture from my brushes and make them brittle. I'd say to go for a gentle shampoo (baby shampoo especially) over this.
I needed something to clean my brushes so I decided to purchase this since it's relatively cheap although you don't get a lot of product. I don't think it works that well.. Regular soap seems to clean my brushes a whole lot better.
Great shampoo for your brushes! Has little to no smell, which is nice. Leaves your brushes super clean!
This made my brushes bristles either fall out, or become very dry and not soft. I went back to using baby shampoo to wash my brushes. Won't be repurchasing.
Really like it. Cleans very well. Be aware that if you use very dark makeup, this product may have a hard time removing all of the color from brushes with light bristles. But for me, this product works perfectly.
I expected nothing but satifactory results with this product since I have been satisfied with the majority of E.L.F. products; however, I was greatly disappointed after several attempts to clean my brushes.
First of all, I think a brush shampoo should have a pump dispenser; it's just more convienent when you are cleaning multiple brushes in the same sitting.
Secondly, this product removed very little residue. There was still makeup on my brushes!! It did not lather or give a brand-new clean feel as I expected. On the other hand, I used my softsoap, what I normally use to wash my hands, and experienced way better results.
Do not buy. I would not recommned at all.
