      • 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.

      Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

      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 $$

                  I will be honest, other than a spritz of brush cleaner here and there, I haven't truly cleaned my brushes. I've been using them for about a year of 2 now. I thought nothing could save them, but a few wash, rinses, and repeats, my brushes were saved. 10 minutes fixed two years of mistreatment and I'm so happy with this cleaner.

                          As soon as I got it I cleaned alllllll my brushes (about 15 of them). And OMG!! It works like magic! I have the Real Techniques brush cleaner, and it did so-so. But no matter how much I washed my brushes, never had it cleaned them to the point where I can see the white tips again! With so little effort! Definitely a re-buy.

                          • 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!
