      Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

      First off, does it clean? Yes, and really well. However, it comes "scented"...why oh WHY do they do this?!

      I used this to clean my brushes and beauty blender, and while I am really happy with the cleaning...I could smell the fragrance while working. I hoped it was just a slight scent that came out while the product was being used and would dissipate...yeah, no. The scent stuck to my hands, brushes, and blender, then, this morning, it transferred the scent to my face when I did my makeup. Luckily the scent that transferred to my skin is really slight and I am able to mostly ignore it. But my brushes are going to have to be washed all over again!! I really wish they hadn't put the scent in this, because it really does clean really well. But, alas I'll be taking it back.

      5 star if not for the smell

      Great! Cleaned up my beauty blender quick and easy, but there's a scent....it smells like...that hand lotion dish washing soap dawn came out with....lol sorry for the obscure reference. The scent lingered on my hands, but didn't seem to stick to my blender or brushes, so definitely repurchase. Just warning to anyone sensitive to smells, might wanna try it in store first.

      Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

      I was a little apprehensive when the Ulta employee recommended I try Japonesque solid cleanser, as they were out of the liquid cleanser I usually use. I'm so glad I took her advise! The solid cleanser is very easy to use and leaves my brushes clean, conditioned and smelling amazing! I've used it many times and the cleanser still looks brand new!

          I love deep cleaning my make up brushes and foundation sponge with this product. It conditions and cleans in one with no residue, and it's fast! Plus it seems like it will last for a long time.

          Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

          The Japonesque solid brush cleaner is a good adjunct product if you are using their spray solvent makeup brush cleaner. (Think washing your hands vs. a hand sanitizer…) I have used various brush shampoos, soaps and solvent based cleaners, and many have their good points, this solid brush cleaner's is that it is very conditioning. This cleanser actually rejuvenated more than a few brushes by softening the hairs. I lathered the brush head up and set it aside to let the cleanser 'condition' the hairs before rinsing. I've cleaned about 75 brushes with this cleanser, and I feel it will last through many more cleanings if you don't let the cleanser get and stay too wet. There is no need to use excessive product. If your brushes are very dirty, use alcohol or another solvent brush cleaner to loosen any residue on your brush before using this cleanser.

          Pros: that it cleaned effectively; the cleanser rinses out easily; it is very conditioning; it is easy to use; best for natural-hair brushes.

          Cons: the scent—a little too strong, and lingers on the brush, yet it was tolerable. (Note: the second time I used this product, I found the scent less strong during cleaning and when the brush dried. After I used it initially, I left the cover off for the excess water to evaporate off before storing it, and I think that helped.)

          If you value your natural hair brushes, and need a conditioning element in your care for them, then you will not find this so expensive.

          This stuff is amazing! I cleaned about 20 brushes in just a few minutes with barely any of the product and they look brand new again! seems pricey but it will probably last a really long time!

            This is the best brush cleaner I've ever come across. It not only cleans high-quality makeup brushes without leaving a sticky residue, it makes them smell divine! It's long-lasting and well worth the purchase price.

              Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser:

              I love this product. The only thing that would make it better is having no need to rinse it after use; however, having it all compact and no spraying is wonderful.

              It also cleans quickly... I only use it after daily eye liner application and it removes excess easily as noted by how little there is left on the brush when rinsing.

              I have found my brush cleaner.

                  A:

                  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.
