    Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

    I purchased this item because sphr was out of stock on their solid brush cleaner, and I swear by that! So I went to Ulta and I found that this was the closest thing. I didn't like how it didn't foam, and I felt like it was like a soap so I felt I was using too much product on one brush. Now with eyeshadow and synthetic brushes it worked real nice!! Face brushes since it didnt foam, i ddnt feel it was cleaning. I would repurchase, but cant replce my go to.

          Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

          This product is a game changer! I was really skeptical about how a solid cleaner would work, but I have found this method to be far more time efficient than a traditional brush cleaning solution. You simply dampen the head of your brush and swirl it around in the cleanser. You will see the product lift from your brush. Then you rinse and done! I found this to also be less messy than traditional brush cleaning methods. The one con is that you can't really clean off your beauty sponges with it.

              This brush cleaner is amazing! I literally used it to clean about 9 brushes and every single brush was extremely clean!!!! And I still had more than half of the product left. Also, my brushes smelled phenomenal! I strongly suggest this for any daily makeup user who must clean her brushes often.

                    Best Uses

                    • Heavily used brushes

                    Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

                    I literally tossed all my other brush cleaners after the first use!

                    Its crazy fast and easy to use. I can't believe the sheer amount of stuff that came out of brushes I thought were relatively clean (and we won't even talk about the somewhat neglected brushes. WOW).

                    I opted for the coconut scent, which is heavenly. It creates a rich frothy foam that really gets deeper into bristles than anything else. Cleaning the full collection (around 20) used to take for-frigging-ever, I finished in about 20 minutes. Literally one minute of effort per brush and they looked like new. The bristles feel conditioned after drying.

                    I find it helpful to have a paper towel on hand to clear the murky froth between brushes. At the end I give it a rinse under lukewarm water and wipe with a clean paper towel before putting away. I would not consider this a disinfecting product by any stretch, but the manual rubbing and rinsing is removing a lot of residual gunk and bacteria. Thorough dry after and you're good to go. Oh, and your brushes will smell AMAZING.

                    This brush cleaner is easy to use. It really gets the brushes clean and conditioned. I was going to throw away some of my older brushes but after using this product, they were like new again. I wouldn't go back to any spray cleansers after using this. Worth the extra $$

                        • 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!
