        Comments about Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel:

        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.

            This is a great brush cleaner used with a rubber brush cleaning pad. Real Techniques has one but mine is from another store but works well. It will even get the darkest, pigmented shades out of my RT brushes.

                                  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!

                                  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!
