      This cleaned my makeup brushes great however I started to notice tiny makeup marking on it after a while. Also the price was a bit too high for something so small and compact.

      Great mitt

      Comments about Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette:

      I tried Ulta's brush cleaner mitt first and it's a little too small for me. This one is a great size and the hand strap doesn't bother me (shame on the person that gave it one star because it has a hand strap)

      I was looking for a good (but cost efficient) make up brush cleaner & gave this a try. I am very pleasantly surprised with how great this item works! You see the brushes being cleaned immediately as you worked with the product! I do use the same company for majority of my make up brushes so I'm not sure if that's a factor but either way I would recommend this! Price is fantastic & it really works!

          I've been looking for something like this to clean up my brushes and this is definitely the best buy! I haven't used the gel that comes with it since I got my own cleaner for my brushes. I don't wear much make up but it was crazy to see all the make up that comes off the brushes when I clean them using this, I was very impressed! Used my brushes the next day and they feel like new again, I love it! Will recommend this product to anyone that is in search of cleaning their make up brushes

                  I've always used a regular bowl with soap and water to clean my brushes. I dunno if that's good for the brushes or not-- but when I was in Ulta, this caught my eye, so I bought it. A great thing about this is that it has a hand slip on the back, which I thought was really nice! Quite frankly, it makes the whole brush-cleaning time far more easier + enjoyable plus it really cuts down the time it takes to clean brushes nicely! Definitely recommend!

                    This palette makes cleaning brushes much easier and thorough than using your hand or fingers. Also could use less cleanser! I didn't feel the wash included was particularly effective though- I used my bareminerals cleaner instead.

                    • Q:

                      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!

                    • 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!

                        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.

                        A:

                        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!
