        Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

        I use this to clean my beauty blender because I feel like a solid cleanser works best to clean it. I wet it just a little bit and smear it all around in the cleanser, then put it back under the water and squeeze a few times, then repeat the process until the water runs clear. It really gets it very clean and I will most likely repurchase, but I feel like it's going to last for a very long time so that's a plus!

          Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

          I was used to using the Bare Minerals liquid brush shampoo, but the store didn't have it, so I tried this when a sales associate recommended it. It's totally different since it's solid, but I wet the brush as instructed, swirled it around on the cleaner, rinsed the brush and did a quick rinse of the cleaner surface (just swirled a little water in the container, dumped it out and let it air dry). I massaged the bristles of the brush as I rinsed it and it seemed to work very well. I think in the long run this may be more economical, but I'm not sure you could wash a very large brush very easily with it. I was just cleaning a small concealer brush. I would buy this again. I think it will last a long time since I only wash my brush a couple of times a month.

              I received this as a gift. although it has a pleasant smell it didn't clean my brushes all the way. I use powder foundation and it took a lot of product to clean my foundation brush alone. I used my babys shampoo to remove the rest of the foundation. I would NOT recommend this product.

              This product has saved my Soo Susan brushes that I adore.
              You only have to use a bit and barely have to lather. The smell is incredible. I will be buying this for as long as it is available. Give it a try, it is soo worth It!

                  Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

                  I bought this yesterday. I had been out of brush cleaner and I didn't like the DIY regime I had been using at home. This is fabulous. It works better than the Japonesque spray in my opinion. This left my brushes softer and more fluffier than when I bought them. The coconut is a great added scent. I didn't buy a scrubbing pad because I just use the face one that came with my L'Oreal 360 Deep Clean face wash (also highly recommend for sensitive skin). I wouldnt recommend this brush cleaner if you are someone who washes their brushes after every use. It takes some time to get a good lather and to rinse and dry the brushes. I think this is more of a deep clean to wash your brushes once a week. I think that this will last a long time. It's expensive for a brush cleaner, but it's worth it!

                        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.

                            • 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!
