      I haven't washed my brushes since I've gotten them. Yeah I know how could I! But this product omgee! It cleaned all the old dirty gunk from my brushes! And it smells good! I also bought the pink hand held Mat. Both work great! Little goes a long way!

              I was checking around for a new make up brush cleaner when I ran across this in Ulta. The price was really reasonable for the size, so I decided to buy it and give it a try. I LOVE IT!!! It doesn't smell like chemicals, which I love, and cleaned my brushes very well. I'll definitely continue to use this.

                  Comments about Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel:

                  Takes a lot of product to make a lather that only lasts through one brush. I much prefer Napoleon Perdis' Marshmallow Foam...a little goes a long way. Of course, it's 3 times the price. I also found it hard to rinse out of the brushes. Really disappointed, because I love Real Techniques brushes.

                    I used this immediately after purchase to clean my brushes. I'm lazy on doing this, but they came out clean and soft again. I do recommend this product.

                          It didnt clean my brushes at all! I tried it on liquid and powder brushes and not even a difference was made. The only thing it cleaned was my beauty blender. Pretty sad.

                          First I bought the Cleansing Palette, and it came with samples to I tried it. LOVED how much make up it cleaned off my Real Technique brushes and have been using it weekly ever since! Would definitely purchase again and recommend!

                            I used ulta brand spray in the past, but it wouldnt clean and liquids or creams off my brushes. I used a sample of this i had recieved in another product. And it worked very well. Decided to order the full size. Still like it. For the price its ok, it does clean decent enough but it may require more then once tonget it fully clean.

                                I have sensitive, oily, breakout-prone skin. Does this brush cleanser have anything in it that might irritate my skin? Does this cleanser have any oils in it?

                                  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!

                                  Thanks for your question. Yes - you can definitely use the Real Techniques Cleansing Gel with the new Cleansing Palette. As a matter of fact, they were actually designed to work together! :)
