It's important to wash brushes regularly because bacteria, face oils, dead skin cells, make up residue and dust can accumulate on brushes. In search for a product aside from what I already used, I tried this Sephora brand. The verdict: STAY AWAY from this product, it's a total waste of money! First of all, this formula does not create any suds. I pour some on my palm and swirl the brush...it feels like I am using plain water. I could get past this fact if it worked BUT it leaves plenty of visible make up. Even after I rinsed and repeated a few times. It comes with a pump which I thought would be convenient but the mechanism tends to squirt the product so l could not even reuse the bottle with another brush cleanser. Sadly, $6 went straight down the drain.
* I have used baby shampoo to wash brushes and it cleans them well and it is much more economical. If i need to remove water resistant make up like Revlon Color Stay from my foundation brush, I'll use a little bit of Dawn dish liquid soap and it works like a charm. Sometimes it is better to stick with what already works for you.

It seems people don't like this because it doesn't suds up much. I use no sulfate shampoo for my hair, which also doesn't suds, so I'm using to getting a clean without the bubbles. I thought it worked fairly well. I admit I'm lazy and didn't wash my brushes for a long time, and then I started breaking out (or maybe its pregnancy, who knows, but something is making me have cystic acne again). I had to do a deep cleaning on my brushes, and it did take more shampoo and I had to wash/rinse a few times for some of them, but again, there was a lot of build up. And it even got the dried gel liner off. The brushes dried well, not crunchy.
My only gripe is the pump mechanism feels very stiff and doesn't dispense much each pump.

I don't understand why I haven't read a positive review on this brush shampoo. They could have improved the formula since 2010. But I must say that, I LOVE this brush shampoo! It smells clean and a bit "floral-like." It disinfects (shampoo does not), and cleans so well. It is a bit pricey, but it is worth it! I have tried the ELF brush shampoo (terrible! You are better off using plain old Dawn), and MAC brush cleanser, and the Sephora is by far the best one to deep clean with. I have noticed that I don't break out as much after cleaning my brushes with this cleanser, as I did with using the ELF brush shampoo weekly. DO try this product out, it is awesome!

I have never used a makeup brush cleaner before, but I don't need to to see that this is not the best, in fact- pretty bad. It seemed to cling to the product on the brush so you have to really scrub hard to take it off. It also left a dry clear-glue like residue on the brushes sometimes too. While it did effectivley clean, you have to use alot of product on little eyeshadow brushes for it to feel like it actually does clean. It actually ruined my EL face brush, leaving the once soft bristles hard and clumpy. Now I clean with baby shampoo and use this too just to use up the product.

I love keeping my makeup brushes clean. Once a week, I go straight to my regular shampoo, or Dawn dishliquid and gently clean them.
On a whim, while at Sephora I picked up this purifying brush shampoo for $6.00. Personally, it ended up to be a waste of money. First off, it is low-sudsing. I'm the kind of gal who loves suds. Call me strange, but I really feel if a cleaning product is nice and sudsy, I'm in cleanliness heaven. Secondly, you need a lot of product to clean those brushes. That is a waste. I really did not see a lot of makeup come off my brushes, I really had to scrub them a lot.
Needless to say, Dawn, or any regular shampoo will suffice. If you are at Sephora and see this, walk on by and use the six bucks to go toward a MUFE product or a nice lipstick.
