Comments about Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette:

I've never had a brushing cleaning matt before and saw the ones you can put in the sink with little suction cups. Well, I thought that sounded great. But, I found this one at Ulta and couldn't be happier with it. The little plastic in the back slips over your hand ... and it is SO EASY to clean your brushes. Makes it *almost* a fun job instead of a chore!!

      Love the different sized ridges to really get in there to clean the makeup out of the brushes. Excess makeup comes off this with a quick rinse. Comfortable to use.

          I love the different textures on the cleansing palette, it works great with all of my makeup brushes! It washes of very easily. The size of it is nice too as it's small, but not too small. It stores easily and would be great for traveling.

          Not Worth It

          By Rachael

          from Virginia, USA

          Comments about Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette:

          The solution did NOT clean my brushes. The hand-held part get super slippery and nearly impossible to hold. The only area of the pad that works is the center and even after scrubbing it with a toothbrush the gunk is still stuck in between the little bumps. Expected more from Real Techniques.

                This is an alternative to cleaning makeup brushes in the palm of your hand. Has a handle to slip over the palm and has a surface that helps rub the brush a little deeper than by hand.

                  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?

                    Hi BB London,

                    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!

                • Q:

                  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!

                  How do you actually use this product?
                  Asked on 3/3/2016 by Giggles from Ignacio, CO

                  • Brand Expert

                    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.

                  Can I use this with baby shampoo to clean my brushes?

                    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:

                    http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod13731029

                    Hope all of that helps!
