            Comments about Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel:

            I was so excited to try this product. I love Real Techniques, but then... I feel it works pretty good for our shadow brushes. However it did not clean any of my foundation brushes at all. I tried to use it several times on one of my foundation brushes and it just was not working. My opinion, good with a brush you use powder products on, not good for a brush you use any foundation or product that may have more than a powder base.

            Comments about Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel:

            I have never used any kind of brush cleansing gel before, I normally just clean mine with soap and water. I dunno if that's good for the brushes or not-- but when I was in Ulta, Real Techniques' Brush Cleansing Palette caught my eye, and so I bought that and this product as well.

            The palette came with samples of the gel, so I used the samples on my brushes first-- and I was so surprised that it actually worked! Usually it would take me about four or five times to successfully clean out each brush (admittedly, I don't clean them as often as I should)-- but with this gel, I did mostly two or three turns for each brush. Just make sure that all traces of the gel is gone from the brushes once you set them aside to dry! It really saved me a bunch of time, plus it foams nicely too and I really like the smell of it-- it doesn't smell like chemicals, but rather it smells clean and a bit floral-ish to me. So in the end, you have clean brushes which smells nice as well!

                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.

                            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.

                                  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! :)
