      Comments about EcoTools Makeup Brush Cleansing Shampoo:

      I don't clean my make up brushes as often as I should (once every 2-3 wks) and this cleaner seems to polish the bristles clean. Once the brushes are clean I have better smoother make up application. The bristles are smooth and soft after cleaning. This was my first purchase for make up cleaners and I'm too happy to try something different so I don't have anything to compare it to.

        I've repurchased this shampoo a few times already and it's been working great for me so far. It cleans my brushes very well, you don't need to use a lot of the product, it smells nice. I love that it's hypoallergenic and doesn't have parabens and other harsh chemicals in it.

                  I just bought this item today at Ulta, and fell in love with it! It cleaned my makeup brushes so well!! I had to apply shampoo a few times to make sure all the makeup was off.
                  I have used other products before and the makeup would not wash out of my brushes. This product washed all the makeup off my brushes completely! So happy!!

                  Love how much make up came out of my brushes after 1 use. To see 5+ years if product come out, amazed me. This product made my natural hair brushes so soft and like brand new again, after 1 wash. You only need a little bit, which really stretches out the product. I finally found my new brush cleaner, and the price is great too.

                            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!

                            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!

                            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.
