    Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

    Don't buy this if you're sensitive to fragrance -- it's loaded with a strong and pervasive fragrance. Since I'm allergic to most products with fragrance, I had to throw away the brushes I'd used it on. Could not wash that smell out. Plus, it's not that effective. Stick with soap and water.

    A product that actually works as claimed

          Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

          I use a very dark foundation and concealer and have three dual fiber (stippling) brushes. The brushes work wonders with foundation, but the white fibers never seem to get white again with my regular pink liquid brush cleaner even with extended soaking. However, I put this solid brush cleaner to the test and I am very, very impressed. Cleaned the brushes quickly, no soaking involved. The only small problem I have is with the scent. Though pleasant, it is quite strong... and it lingers. You will need to rinse very well if you are scent sensitive.

            Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

            I bought this thinking that it could probably be a dupe for a different solid cleanser. It's double the amount of product, but I used it 5 times and hit pan on it. I had repurchased the other solid cleanser a couple different times, so I knew how to take care of it, not to let water sit in it or to use too much water, etc. It is just a terrible product. It smells like old lady perfume, and that smell lasts for days, until you wash your brushes again. Also, it did not clean my brushes well, and it seemed the cleanser never really rinsed out. I broke out a lot until I switched cleansers. Overall, I'm extemely disappointed with this product. Don't waste your $.

                I got a 0.5 oz sample of this with an online Ulta purchase. It does an amazing job at cleaning and conditioning my brushes and it's super easy to use. It also has a great smell that lingers on the brushes. The only downside would be the $20 cost for 2 oz. I know a lot of people who use vinegar, which is cheaper. I use the Sephora brush shampoo, which I don't like as much, but it's not as expensive and it lasts awhile.

                  I don't know how I ever lived without this. It makes cleaning my brushes extremely easy with the added bonus of a wonderful smell. I seriously don't know how I ever lived without this product prior.

                      Thought I would give this a try, and I'm glad I did. Before I bought this balm, I was using baby shampoo and a bit of olive oil to clean and condition my brushes. Which works great, but using this balm saves me a lot of time. It pretty much cut my cleaning time in half. I like the smell of it also :)

                        I was a dish soap user until picking this up. The formula smells amazing, so the experience of using freshly-cleaned brushes is even more luxurious now! Hairs feel soft, not stripped.

                          Interesting design for a cleanser. Doesn't clean the absolute best, but because it is in solid form I can travel with it, which means a lot to me. It also smells wonderful and imparts that fragrance into my brushes, so as I apply my makeup I get to smell it coming off the brush. It is very gentle on my brushes and is quick and easy to clean up. I would repurchase, and buy as gifts for friends. I wish it was a little more cost friendly. I first soak my brushes under running water, add just a touch of water to the jar, then swirl my brush around for a moment, then do a backwards and forwards motion (like painting a fence-first the underside of the brush, then the top side). I repeat the motion until I see the makeup draining from my bristles. I run the brush under running water again and quickly rinse the jar and product in the running water too. I repeat until my brush is clean, usually only 2 or 3 times. It doesn't take long and is kind of fun to do.

                            Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

                            So happy I picked this up on a whim while browsing Ulta. I've always dreaded cleaning my makeup brushes as I find it to be such a tedious process, but Japonesque's Solid Brush Cleanser was not only very effective at removing all makeup residue from my brushes, but it was virtually mess free, had a subtle, not overpowering, pleasant scent, and made my brush fibers noticeably softer.

                            My only qualm would be that I'm hesitant as to how long this cleanser will last. Because it is a balm, and you have to wipe away makeup residue from the surface after each brush you clean, I'm expecting this product to run out rather quickly. I've only used the cleanser once so far so I can't say for sure if this is the case. Regardless as to whether or not the balm does run out quickly, I will definitely still repurchase.
