      Works well cleaning my brushes, I love that I got to try the brush soap before buying because I don't like products with a strong scent so I will be purchasing the bottle as well.

                Using this was so much easier to clean my brushes. It seemed to get the job done quicker; the ridges helped clear the build up.

                      I have been looking for a tool like this for a long time. All brush cleaning palettes I had found were from brands I never heard of and only available online. This palette is perfect! It cleaned my foundation and concealer brushes (the brushes that get the dirtiest imo) so well and when they dried they were as good as new! I get worried that my brushes will be stiff or hard after cleaning, especially with a gel, but this was not the case! I use high end brushes, so keeping them clean and in good condition is extremely important to me. This product is a great price and the cleansing gel packets work well too! They smell amazing, but I don't know that I would purchase the gel on its own- I probably would just use baby shampoo. I ended up using a whole packet of the cleansing gel since I cleaned over 20 brushes at once and it's definitely necessary to rinse the palette after each brush. I think I would go through the gel too quickly and It wouldn't be worth it. The handle on the palette is also great since you can hold the palette while you clean!

                                Hi! I absolutely love this to clean not only my RT Brushes but for my other brands of brushes (Morphe & Sigma) and I absolutely couldn't ask for a better product especially at the amazing price. I love the 2 little packets of brush cleanser that came with the brush cleansing palette, can I buy the brush cleansing solution also as an individual product?

                                  So glad you loved the brush cleansing gel that came with the palette! And you are in luck - that gel is available in larger size. You can find it here: http://www.ulta.com/deep-cleansing-gel?productId=xlsImpprod13121017

                                  We absolutely love the gel too - it does such an amazing job getting brushes clean!

                                  Thanks so much!

                                Could you spray a brush cleaning spray on the palette and use that instead of a brush cleansing shampoo/gel?

                                  Hi Ashley,

                                  Good question. The shampoo/gel used in conjunction with the palette is going to give you a good, deep clean, which will be more than the spray can do overall; however, if you use the spray 1x week with the palette and do a deep clean at least once a month, I think that would be perfect for your brushes.

                                  Thanks!

                                  A:

                                  HI Giggles,

                                  Thanks for your question. We are so excited about this new palette! It's so important to clean your brushes, and especially to make sure you have the right tool for the right brushes. And here it is!

                                  The palette is very easy to use:

                                  This has been designed to make the palette easy to hold, yet effective to use.

                                  First step - Prep. Slip your hand into the palette and squeeze a dime size amount of our Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel (shown here: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod13121017) onto the tool. Add warm water to the palette.

                                  Step 2 - Washing: Wet the bristles of the brush that you are going to be cleaning, then swirl brush into the gel and water on the palette. You will see that there are various textured surfaces on the face of the palette. Those correspond to the size of the brush head you are cleaning, so the larger surfaces are for larger brush heads and vice versa. Gently work the brush head across the various surfaces until the brush is clean. Rinse bristles thoroughly, being careful to not fully immerse the base of the bristles. Squeeze out the excess water.

                                  Step 3 - Drying: Rest your brushes across the surface of the tool to dry or use the panoramic case from our sets (sold separately) to dry brushes upside down.

                                  Hi RT Brush Lover!

                                  Love your screen name, btw! :)

                                  In answer to your question, yes, you can definitely use baby shampoo to clean your brushes. If you are using a baby shampoo, we would recommend a more natural formula to take better care of the fibers and bristles.

                                  I also wanted to let you know that Real Techniques has also come out with a brush cleanser that you might want to try. It's available at Ulta.com here:

                                  http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod13121017

                                  It has been specifically formulated for brush bristles and will give your brushes a great clean!

                                  If you want to go one step further and develop a cleaning "system", we also have come up with a cool brush cleansing palette that has a multi-textured surface to help you with a really deep clean on your brushes. The Cleansing Palette is available at Ulta.com here:

                                  Hope all of that helps!
