                      Comments about Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel:

                      Bought this to try out for deep cleansing as my Cinema Secrets cleanser does well for spot cleaning, but does dry out the bristles after while. Real Techniques is usually fantastic and I love everything I have tried from them, except this.

                      It does a good enough job getting eye shadow out of brushes (with a brush cleansing palette) but when it comes to anything else it's terrible. The lather is simultaneously too much and not enough - it doesn't rinse clean but you need WAY too much product pet brush. It does not remove all of the makeup from the brushes either - I actually had to rewash all of the brushes that I used this on (that weren't eyeshadow brushes).

                      Overall, skip this and find something that cleans ALL your brushes well, and doesn't use half a bottle to clean ten brushes.

                      Great brush cleaning gel. It definitely works best with the brush cleansing pad from RT too. Doesn't overdry brushes and leaves the super clean.

                          This is an amazing brush cleaner to use on ANY brush from iT brushes to real technique brushes. I use this as my deep cleanser once a week to clean all the build up on my brushes. For spot cleaning I use the Ulta brand spray brush cleaner daily. They both work well together and I have noticed my skin clearing up so no irritation!

                                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! :)
