Comments about EcoTools Makeup Brush Cleansing Shampoo:

Recently bought this after trying high end and super expensive cleaners.. This worked better than anything I've ever seen. Revived all my brushes. I was about the throw them away and buy new ones but this very affordable brush shampoo saved me and I got to return the 40$ cleaner I recently bought

      Comments about EcoTools Makeup Brush Cleansing Shampoo:

      I absolutely hate cleaning my makeup brushes and tend to just buy new ones all the time but after reading reviews on various sites I decided to try this shampoo and it was worth it. It cleaned my brushes thoroughly, quickly and easily. I set out just to test it but ended up wanting to wash every brush I owned right away. It also didn't leave any residue or bad smell like I've experienced with more expensive products. I do recommend purchasing a little egg or mat to assist with the process. It is not necessary but makes it that much easier.

                                  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!

                                  Hi Grace,

                                  Such a good question and love to hear that you're cleaning your brushes! This brush shampoo is specifically formulated to be as eco-friendly as possible, which means that the ingredients used are going to keep your brushes as soft as possible. I use this every week to clean my brushes and I think they are still as soft as when I got them!

                                  Hope that helps!

                                  Hi Mackenzie,

                                  Thanks for your question.

                                  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.

                                  Thanks!

                                  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!

                                  Yes, this is great for use on sponges. As with any type of cleanser, just make sure you rinse thoroughly and squeeze any excess liquid off your sponge and allow to dry.
