      Comments about EcoTools Makeup Brush Cleansing Shampoo:

      I had previously bought the Real Techniques gel cleaner because the EcoTools brand wasn't in my local store. What a disappointment! The Real Techniques gel is hard to get out of the bottle and doesn't sufficiently clean my brushes. However, this EcoTools product has been SO MUCH BETTER!!

          Comments about EcoTools Makeup Brush Cleansing Shampoo:

          Does not clean well. Takes two or three washes to clean brushes and there's still make up residue left behind. However, once the brushes actually get clean they are very soft. Probably won't buy this again.

                This stuff is amazing! With a dime sized application it cleaned my disgusting foundation brush which had lots of liquid product dried on it and let me tell you it came out with white beautiful bristles!!! Nice scent to it and my brushes were like new after and cannot beat the price will continue to buy!!!

                  This product worked great. It does a great job cleaning my brushes and leaves them smelling really good. It does come out of the bottle a little fast so I use more than I really need. And considering how small the bottle is, I don't want to waste any.

                          Thanks for your question! All of our EcoTools and Real Techniques brush bristles are synthetic, and this was designed to work perfectly with both synthetic and natural hair bristles.

                          Hope that helps!

                          Great question - this cleanser is one of my personal favorites because of how gentle it is, but also how effective it is too! You should be able to use this with no problem on any of the makeup brushes in your bag.

                          Thanks!

                          Hi Ray Ray,

                          As with everything, it's probably best if you consult your dermatologist before using, but I can tell you that this is formulated with ingredients that are a bit less harsh than some of the other makeup brush cleansers that are out there. And, while I'm not a doctor, I think that would lessen any skin irritations, etc that you might experience.

                          Hope that helps!

                          Hi Abby,

                          Great question. This brush is specifically formulated with gentler ingredients to ensure that your brushes and sponges do not dry out. I use this shampoo to clean my brushes every week and LOVE the performance I get from them after I clean them. While we don't claim that this "conditions" your brushes, I do think mine feel softer after cleaning, definitely!

                          Thanks - hope that helps!

                          This cleanser has been dermatologist tested and is hypoallergenic. Because it's also made with gentle plant-based ingredients, and is free of parabens, phthalates, and petroleum-based ingredients, it should not cause your skin to break out. Just ensure that you wash, rinse and dry your brushes thoroughly.

                          Good question - I actually had to ask the people who formulated the shampoo about that, so I learned something too today! :)

                          They told me that the Makeup Brush Shampoo is just a cleanser for the brushes, and does not contain any antibacterial agents. The shampoo will wash away buildup (including bacteria), but isn't designed to kill bacteria.

                          Hope that helps!

                          Thanks!
