i find that this is wonderful to use on brushes after every use in between deep cleaning (with proper shampoo) which i do about once a week/fortnight depending on how much makeup i use during that period. it dries very quickly so the brush is clean and ready to be used within minutes after i have cleaned it. I do not think it works as well as shampoo for deep cleaning as suggested but otherwise this product is wonderful! This has definately become a must in my makeup collection!
This brush cleanser is ideal for daily brush cleaning. I apply it on the cotton pads and sweep the brush on the cotton pads. It's quick to clean. And the brush dries quickly.
This product is really worth purchasing. I'm sorry but drugstore brush cleanser (such as Essence of Beauty) are heavily littered with alcohol, a much high concentrate of alcohol. This product is a perfect blend that isn't harsh and won't hard your brushes after many many uses. It's worth it to just invest in a little bit more money if you are a serious brush collector. The only complaint is that the bottle top does not allow for easy use, you end up pouring out more than you need. A remedy for this is to buy a miniature spray bottle (travel size) and keep some in there for spot treatments when you don't need so much product.
This brush cleanser is wonderful for spot cleaning and sanitizing my brushes daily in between deep cleaning, which I do once a week with baby shampoo.
What I do with this product is just drip a little bit on a paper towel (I cut the select-a-size paper towels in half and they are just right for this job) and then wipe my brush on the paper towel until its clean. My brushes dry very quickly after using this.
This is really not that expensive for a MAC product ($14.50) and a bottle of this will last me 6-8 months. I have tried using it for deep cleaning at the sink the way the box suggests, but I did not find it as effective as baby shampoo.
Using this brush cleanser is an easy way of always keeping my brushes clean and fresh, which is important for proper makeup application and preventing breakouts. I love this stuff and I dont know what I would do without it.
This stuff is pretty awesome. I squirt some on a tissue to wipe my brushes off or I dilute some in water to let them soak for a deeper clean. It's a great price for how much you get and it lasts a good long while. I'll definitely keep using this.
This is amazing, I have repurchased this several times. I like the size 7.5 oz for $11 which i feel is very good. Compared to other brands, more product for more money. I have never had a problem with this causing my brushes to shed, or damaging them in any way. I highly recommend this, I purchased this for my mom and she loves it too! There is a con, you can easily pour to much out if you are not careful. I don't find this a problem, but I can understand how some people could.
Wonderful for spot cleaning brushes, most dry fairly quickly- enough so that you can apply a different colour if needing to use the same brush twice during your routine- as long as you don't saturate the brush in cleaner, anyhow. This product is fairly gentle on brushes, but really cleans off any debri from past usage quickly and effectively. Remember to deep clean your brushes once a month though, because as great as this product works, it does not effectively DEEP clean- which all brushes need at some point as to avoid product build up and breakouts. I don't care too much for the packaging, it wastes a lot of product- so I transfer the contents into a spray bottle. At $11, this is something I will re-buy again and again...plus, it comes in PINK. ;)
I was not satisfied with how baby shampoo was cleaning my 187. I use it for foundation and blushcreme everyday therefore I wash it everyday. Shampoo wasn't cleaning it as well as I wanted it to, and it was leaving a film. After reading that people use this and water to wash their brushes, I figured I'd give it a shot. I'm glad I did!
This solves my filmy problem really well. It works great for spot cleaning too. I don't know how fast it dries as I just clean my brushes when I'm finished. As others have complained, the cap sucks, but I can deal with it.
This is a pretty good brush cleanser, and even though I don't think the bottle is convenient to use, a different cap is a must! Not bad overall but I still prefer fairy wash up liquid to get my brushes clean..
Great brush cleanser! It just seems to desolve away even the gooiest residue on brushes, yet never damages the bristles. Works with natural or synthetic bushes, and rinses clean with just a little water. Brushes are an investment... I keep mine for ages using this cleanser at least once a week. The best.
