    Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

    I love this product. Makes cleaning my brushes super easy. No more shampooing my brushes or buying new ones every time I'm too lazy. Ha ha. Everything literally just attaches and then rinses right off. Now I want to try the other just for comparison purposes.

    Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

    I've always used baby shampoo to clean my brushes and it works great. I thought I'd branch out and try actual brush cleaners. first I bought the spray by japonesque in rosewater. It cleaned surface makeup but not even that great since I like to clean my brushes daily and it still didn't really clean them. plus the oily residue on my hands and brush was annoying. but the solid cleanser is AWESOME. It lasts forever and cleans my brushes great without the strong smell of the sprays and zero residue. just clean soft brushes with a very light clean scent. The price is great and the product is even better

          I definitely love this way of cleaning my brushes. Easiest way I've found. Before I bought this, my brushes have not been washed in about 2 months, and cleaning them with this product did just the trick! It also left a pleasant smell.

            Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

            Amazing product! I have a .5 oz tub of this. It lets you know when it is working because the solid foams and changes to the color of the makeup from the brush. Once the solution turns color, it is ready to swish in water to rinse. It doesn't take very much at all! The only con I had was it was a bit too small for my large brushes. But again, I had the .5 oz version which may be smaller than the 2oz tub.

            This cleanser cleaned my brushes incredibly well and left them soft and usable! I'm very happy I purchased it. It will probably last for a long time, it takes very little product to clean the brushes.

            Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

            Let me begin by saying this product is effective and does what it says. However, I have quite a large brush collection and I wash my used brushes twice a week. This product lasted less than a month for me, and I began to hit pan at two weeks. I will be sticking to my EcoTools brush shampoo from now on.

              Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

              Compared to the Beauty Blender solid cleanser, this beats that! This product is about the same size, but has a different consistency from what I can tell in the cleanser. When I washed my brushes (of various brands and various fluffy/stiff bristles) with the Beauty Blender cleanser, it did make them clean but some felt not as soft anymore. Yesterday, I washed my Tarte foundation brush for liquid makeup, and it had some left over from even have 2 washes with the beauty blender cleanser. I was annoyed, and this wasn't the first time either. I needed a new cleanser, so I went to Ulta in the store and found this! When i went home, I re-washed my foundation brush, and within ONE WASHING, EVERYTHING was off and looked 10x cleaner compared to what the beauty blender cleanser did. When it dried, I checked the texture of then rush and it is SUPER soft! I am so happy with this purchase, and will continue to buy it!!

                  Yes, you can certainly use this product to clean makeup sponges, too! Moisten the sponge, then press and swirl gently over the balm surface until the foam has lifted away visible impurities. Rinse the sponge, squeeze out excess moisture, and lay to dry naturally. Rinse the balm quickly under running water or wipe the surface to refresh the balm.
