        Comments about ULTA Brush & Sponge Cleanser:

        This cleanser does not remove makeup from brushes. I find that it works quite well if you're cleaning brand new brushes before using them, and they might work okay with powder brushes (blush, finishing powder, etc.), but it WILL NOT remove any cream or liquid products from the bristles. Dish soap works better. Also, it has a very strong lavender scent.

        I bought it because of the Buy One Get One sale and out of curiosity...aaaaaaand I was out of cleaner. It doesn't clean my brushes at all! I'd rather use baby shampoo to clean my brushes than this. All it did was get a little makeup off of my brushes and left residue on them. On my sponges though, it's somewhat useful. At the end of the day, I ended up buying the Clinique Makeup Brush Cleaner. I'm in love, I cried tears of joy!

            I got the product for free as part of their buy 2 get 2 free sale so I wasn't expecting it to be a miracle worker. I just cleaned my brushes a week ago so they weren't bad yet this didn't make them much better. It was OKAY on my brushes but had no effect on my sponges at all. I'll stick to washing them with blue dawn.

                I was impressed with how well this cleaned my shadow and blush brushes, THEN it came time to clean my foundation brush. It barely made a dent in removing the product. I need a brush cleaner that I can use for all of my brushes, and this one didn't cut it.

                    Ok, I admit it...I hadn't cleaned my brushes in YEARS! This cleanser + the ULTA brush cleaner mitt tool was perfect for my beyond-dirty brushes. They got clean in no time.

                        A:

                        This formula requires rinsing thoroughly with water. For best results, lay your brush flat to dry after cleaning. Dry time varies.
