      Comments about Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel:

      This is a great brush cleanser that is reasonable priced. I clean my brushes once a week sometimes up to every other day. I find I go through so much cleanser, even using sparingly. When I started cleaning my brushes I would use Cetaphil which works great but uses too much water to clean all the suds out. I then moved to MAC brush cleaner which is great but a pit pricey.

      I received this as a sample when I purchased the Brush Cleansing Palette and I haven't looked back. It cleans my brushes well and quickly! I have used it on my synthetic brushes as well as natural. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

              I usually use the BB solid to clean my sponges and brushes. I picked this up because I was running out of my usual cleanser. It does take more soap to clean small brushes . But then when I add too much it takes longer to wash it off completely. Sometimes the soap gets all up in the bristles , I take longer swirling them around on my brush egg. I feel it damages them trying to get all the soap and makeup off. And sometimes even after all of that make-up is still on the bristles. I'm just gonna use it until it runs out but won't repurchase.

                  A little goes a long way. I use it along with the cleaning palette. Brushes come out clean like new. The cleansing gel bottle is a decent size. More than likely it will last me a long time.

                            Not a great cleanser, and you need to use a TON of product to get a good lather on brushes with any hope of getting them clean. Better products out there-Ill stick with Dr. Bronners soap.

                                      It does not take a lot of this product to get your brushes clean. The consistency is more of a gel-like and really gets in to your bristles to quickly clean them. You can see it working instantly.

                                        I'm some what confused about the "gel brush cleanser". Does this product clean brushes exclusively used for applying gel nail polish? I know what to use for cleaning acrylic brushes. I'm starting out with all the supplies for self gel manicures (using Gelish products, polishes,basecoat, topcoat, primer.... the whole Red Carpet starter kit! I realize that this may seem a little redundant, but humor me nevertheless! Thank you for your time and help with my query. Deborah Jeffers

                                          HI Deborah,

                                          Great questions! This cleaner is specifically meant for makeup brushes and sponges. The "gel" in the name refers to the type of product that it is - it's a gel formula. This would not work on gel nails. :)

                                          Hope that helps!

                                          Thanks!

                                          Hi Manda,

                                          I have skin just like yours, so I know how tough it can be when you're buying products that will go on your face, either directly or indirectly. I've been using this cleanser for a while and haven't had a single problem, so hopefully you would be ok with it too.

                                          There is one other brand of cleanser that I would recommend for you (it's our sister brand, and it's eco-friendly): EcoTools Makeup Brush Shampoo (http://www.ulta.com/makeup-brush-cleansing-shampoo?productId=xlsImpprod13501085). This one is made with "softer" ingredients and may be a good start for you with your sensitive skin.

                                          Hope that helped!
