          My Ulta store was out of my usual brand name brush cleaner. One of the employees was very helpful in suggesting that I try the Japonesque Makeup Brush Cleanser. So glad he recommended this brand. It has worked like a dream on my brushes and sponges too. And it is half the price of my usual higher end brush cleaner! It comes in several scents. And a 3 pack of travel size. I love the citrus best.

              Comments about Japonesque Makeup Brush Cleanser:

              It's supposed to clean makeup brushes, but it doesn't remove the makeup from the brushes. I suppose it probably sterilizes them, though, but the makeup is still visible down in the bristles. It smells nice. I was underwhelmed.

                  Not all brush cleaners are created equally!! This is by far the best one I've ever used. I use this to clean my beauty blender and it works like magic!! It literally takes all the makeup and gunk out making your sponge looking like new. I highly recommend this!

                  Comments about Japonesque Makeup Brush Cleanser:

                  I bought this because the brand I normalls use wasn't in the particular Ulta. I didn't read the instructions or ingredients just saw the price and brush cleaner. Once I got home I saw it was a refill bottle for the spray bottles. So I grabbed a clean one I had lay around and got to work. There's not much lather and it does take a lot of sprays but the brushes do come clean after 2-3 washes. I'm darker so it took a few washes to get my brushes completely makeup free. I did a test on paper towel in the morning.

                    Make sure you follow the directions and spray far away from your brushes. If you spray too close they will get too oily. But, if you follow the directions as you should, this product works great!

                        I feel like it is easier to just wash your brushes. This product specifically doesn't work well. It gets the job done but I had to spray a lot of product in total to clean brush enough to use again. Plus drying time is not quick. You cannot spray and use another color like some other brush cleaners do. Also it's very oily feeling. I was holding it an made a quick movement to grab something the oily liquid came out of the spray top. I'm returning it. Smell wasn't bad or good. Just smells kind of like hand sanitizer.

                        • Q:

                          Is this brush cleanser unscented? I tried the rosewater scent but it made my eyes itch and water just by placing the brush cleansed with the rosewater scent on my face. I really would like to find a brush cleanser that is less expensive but works as well as IT cosmetics brush cleanser.
