      I went to Ulta in search of something to use for cleaning my makeup brushes. One of the employees gave me this kit as an option. I love it. Easy to use and gets my brushes very clean without any gumminess.

      Decent

      Comments about Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette:

      This is an okay product. The soap is stupid. My cheap baby soap worked better on my brushes then the packets it came with. The different sized grooves are nice and it does help get the soap out faster. I also like how I can really use the pan to swish my brushes around vs using my hand where water would get everywhere. This not a must have but it can be helpful. The soap is useless though, just use it up and use baby shampoo. You will be a lot better off.

      I really like this cleansing palette. It made the chore of cleaning brushes so easy. I didn't use the cleansing soap that came with the palette but my bushes were throughly clean. I would definitely recommend this product, especially being that the price is right on point.

              I really like this product. I truly does get all of the grim and soap out of the brush. Definitely easier than using your hand. Only downside is I wish you could just get the pallet and not the soap. I use baby soap so I would have liked to spend $5 less without the soap. Oh well.

                      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!

                      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!
