Maintain the beauty of your brushes and sponges with the Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser Cleansing Balm. Effective formula quickly removes makeup buildup to deep cleanse your brushes and sponges for effortless professional cleaning. Freshly scented and coconut scented solid formulas deliver instant mess free results and are the perfect travel friendly cleansing companions.
Moisten the brush head or sponge and swirl gently over the balm surface until the lather has lifted away makeup buildup and brush or sponge appears clean. Thoroughly rinse and gently squeeze out excess water. Dry excess moisture with a terrycloth or paper towel; reshape brush bristles and lay flat to dry. Drying time will vary according to brush type and thickness or size of sponge. Ensure brush or sponge is completely dry before re-using. Rinse the balm quickly under running water or wipe the surface to refresh the balm.

Precautions: For external use only. Keep out of eyes. In case of contact with eyes, flush with water. Contact a physician if swallowed. Keep out of reach of children.

            Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser Cleansing Balm:

            I received this as a sample, but it was almost a half ounce of balm product, so the sample was very generous. I would not have purchased this product to begin with, but I wanted to try it. Bad idea.
            1) This product smells very strong. WAY too strong for me. And the smell stays on your brushes.
            2) This was my first time using a balm cleanser for my brushes and it did not get them clean. A little bit, but not a lot.
            3) Goat milk as the first ingredient, followed shortly by propylene glycol. YUCK! We are all now more aware of the harm done to animals by obtaining milk. The goat has to be pregnant to provide milk, and that means a baby (kid) goat isn't receiving the milk. So what happened to the baby? And we all know that propylene glycol can cause skin problems (search for "side effects of propylene glycol" if you want to learn more).
            4) And lastly, the second ingredient listed is glycerin, which is palm oil. And we all know that the planting and harvesting of palm oil is destroying the rain forests in Borneo and S.E. Asia. So disappointed in this company for including palm oil. Shame.

                    This is amazing brush soap! It works well, cleans and conditions brushes. If you condition your hair, why wouldn't you condition your brush hair??? it works well if real and synthetic hair bristles. if you are complaining that it doesn't work then it is a user error. there is nothing wrong with this stuff!!!

                    1. Wet the brush a bit under the tap (bristles pointing down ALWAYS, do not get water in ferrel).
                    2. Put a dash of water in the brush soap
                    3. Clean the brush the same way you would use (in the soap)
                    4. For denser brushes, move the soap all around the bristles
                    5. rinse with your fingers moving through the brush hair while its under the faucet, bristles pointed down
                    6. ring out the soap gently while it is under the faucet, bristles pointed down
                    7. pat dry the brush with towel and shape bristles.
                    8. lay flat or hanging upside down to dry. I love using a clothing rack and rubberbands.
                    **IF YOU CLEAN THEM REGULARLY THE CLEANING PROCESS WILL NOT TAKE AS LONG. IF YOU NEVER CLEAN THEM BE PREPARED TO REPEAT STEPS.

                    THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT!

                    I use a blending done and I wss recommended this cleaner from an employee at ULTA. My regular dial antibacterial soap works wonders compared to this product, and it's only a couple of dollars. Don't waste your money.

                      This product is amazing! I've always used liquid brush cleansers and had fairly good results but I always had to use more product that I wished just to get my brushes clean and even with a brush scrubber it was a lot of work. I read the reviews about the Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser and was curious to try it to see if it really worked. I'm so glad that I did! Not only did it clean my brushes quickly and thoroughly but it also left them soft and pleasantly smelling. It is worth the money! Anyone that claims it doesn't work or it's too expensive is either using it incorrectly or too cheap to pay for it. I plan to purchase again and I definitely recommend it!

                        I love this product! I can finally clean my makeup brushes really well with little effort. The only challenge I have is getting my full coverage liquid foundation brush clean. But that is the case with all the cleaners I have used. By far this one does the best job!

                          This solid does an amazing job at cleaning. My only gripe is the scent. It's super perfum-y and I still smell it on my brushes weeks after cleaning them. I'll keep it because it doesn't use up a lot of product , but maybe I'll order the other version next time.

                          • Q:

                            I have been looking for a good brush cleaner and beauty blender cleanser, but I have very sensitive skin. I have contact dermatitis, so I have allot of allergies to many different scented things. I was curious if I should just try the unscented one only, or if the coconut scented one would be ok to use as well? Thanks!
