      Can't believe how good this stuff works!

      Comments about Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser:

      Before I give my glowing review, I need to include somewhat of a "disclaimer." No, I did not receive this product for free or at a reduced cost (I wish!). My disclaimer is that this is the only brush cleaner I have ever used, so this may color my review for some people. For years, I have only cleaned my brushes with warm water and dawn dish soap, as many beauty bloggers I follow say that this is the best way to do it and that it works just as well, if not better, than anything else. So, I never deviated from that method. It was cheap, easy, and convenient. BUT - dawn dish soap does not work ANYWHERE near as well as this Clinique brush cleaner. I am seriously in awe of this stuff. I bought it because I got an Ulta gift card for my birthday, and I decided it would be nice to have a daily brush cleaner. When I got the product, I thought I would clean my brushes with dawn one last time to get them ready, and then start using the Clinique product daily after that. However, after cleaning my brushes with the dawn, and still seeing some makeup residue on them, I decided to go ahead and try the Clinique product. As soon as I sprayed the cleaner on the brushes, I saw makeup start to drip off of them. UNBELIEVABLE! Remember, I had JUST cleaned them in the dish soap. I realized that years of cleaning my brushes with only dish soap had allowed for a massive accumulation of product - and what I thought were stains on the brushes was actually built up product that could (and should!) come out. After several rounds of the brush cleaner on some of my dirtier brushes (foundation, eyeliner), they are almost completely white again. I could hardly believe it! Now, maybe I was doing the whole dish soap cleaning method the wrong way, but with the Clinique, you don't have to have a magic method to get obvious, superior results. The only downside is that, if you spend a lot of time cleaning your brushes at once, the alcohol in the cleaner will dry out your hands.

          Comments about Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser:

          This is the only makeup brush cleanser I've tried so far since I just really started using makeup regularly within the past year, but I'm happy with my purchase. It's nothing special, but it's just a brush cleanser and it gets the job done and leaves my brushes squeaky clean. I like how it kind of forms a lather so you really know it's working. This product definitely cleans my brushes more so than if I used water alone. This cleanser is a little pricey at $16, but I'm okay with paying a little extra for a higher quality product, and I'm overall very happy with this purchase.

              Love using this to clean my makeup brushes before doing my makeup everyday. Removes the makeup left on great. I grab a paper towel & spray it on there & just brush my makeup brush back and forth.

                    Hi! If you are the only one using your brushes, you can make that decision based on how much product you are able to remove after each use. Some products require a deeper cleansing each time, and others may not. You can use your best judgment. Happy Holiday's from Clinique!
