    Comments about Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel:

    I place the product in a rinse cup, add a little warm water, swish my brushes in the cup, and then rinse the brushes under running water. Just that simple and the brushes are clean, stored to dry for the next day usage. I needed a product that was easy to use since I am constantly on the go and wanted to wash my brushes daily instead of weekly or longer, like I used to which resulted in facial breakouts because I was not cleaning my makeup brushes enough.

        Comments about Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel:

        I'm ashamed to say I never properly washed my brushes before. I usually use some make up wipes after and pray for the best. Then my make up wasn't applying to my face properly any more and I knew it was time. This stuff is so easy to use there is a YouTube tutorial so you won't mess up. Just a not start off small too much is not a good thing here.

                  I bought the real techniques brush cleaning glove which came with samples of the brush cleaning gel, I loved it immediately. The gel deep cleaned my brushes so well and it left my brushes soft and smelling good! I will definitely keep buying this product.

                  Doesn't remove foundation even from RT brand brushes

                  By MeenaMUA

                  from Annapolis, MD

                  Comments about Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel:

                  I love the Real Techniques brushes; I have as many as 3 of some of them because I think they're such a great value for the performance you get from them. So I was hoping to have a similar experience with the brush cleaner. I was sorely disappointed. I was not able to remove foundation (any brand) fully (or even nearly fully) from RT brand brushes or any other brushes. I tried using this cleanser on IT brushes, Sigma brushes, MAC brushes, Tarte brushes, Japonesque brushes, and Real Techniques own line of brushes. I used drugstore and high end liquid and liquid-to-powder foundations and could not fully clean any of those brushes using this product. I tried scrubbing them against my hand as well as against rubberized cleansing mats to no avail. I would absolutely not recommend this product to anyone. For half the price I can have 3x as much baby shampoo that works 10x better.

                  This leaves your brushes amazingly clean and fresh no extra residue and smells some what sweet when you wash
