You need this!

Comments about Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette:

I bought this on a whim because Ulta was having a 5X points promotion. When it arrived, I first thought it was an unnecessary tool... until I tried it! This makes cleaning your brushes so easy, regardless of the brand of cleanser you use. I even use it on my Clarisonic brushes. But, the real magic comes when you use it to clean your blending sponges! It gets everything out quickly and easily. They've never rinsed so clean and it feels like the whole tool cleaning chore is shorter and more effective.

        For the longest time I have been using my hands to clean my brushes. Put soap, wet brush, swirl in soap then in hand until clean.

        Now, I put a little a little soap in the dish and go over the nubs and viola the brush is clean. It takes such little time. I love this thing! Haven't tried the brush cleaner sample that was included so can't comment.

                There are other brushes cleaners that work best. Although I like the scrubber itself. The cleaning liquid doesn't do a good job on my foundation/concealer brushes.

                  Easy to use. I like the handle in the back that allows you to hold it in place. Even with thorough scrubbing the pallete is held easily with one hand. Add a small amount of cleansing gel and a tiny bit of water. Even the dirtiest foundation brush comes 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!

                            • 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.

                              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!
