I was frustrated that my brush cleaner wasn't doing the job. No matter how much I cleaned, they always seemed not quite there. So I looked at the top three brush cleaners here and ordered one of each.
I started with my foundation brush. I spent 15 minutes applying and wiping! I'm betting some of the product was from my first application (about two years ago). When I was done, the brush looked like it did when I took it out of the package. I was so amazed I spent the next two hours cleaning all my brushes, even the rarely used ones. This morning, I walked in the bathroom and saw all my brushes on the counter. It felt like I was looking at a collection of brand new brushes! Seriously. I have never been so excited to write a review. It deserves more than five stars.
Most Helpful Critical Review Don't use this!
Was recommended by the sales clerk at Ulta as I was buying another IT brush. I have always used mild shampoo with no problems. Used this cleaner as directed and now my foundation brush is shedding huge clumps of bristles. Absolutely furious with myself for trying this and destroying at $40 brush that I like.

I was very surprised to clean my concealer sponge with help of this cleanser. So just simply sprayed directly on my sponge then squeezed few times then rinsed and voila(!) it became clean!!
Wash first then this
Rosesarelit from California
I wash my foundation brush first and use this after if it doesn't get everything off completely. After I use it my brushes look new again.
Jenny from PA
It smells so good but I'm not impressed. It's too oily. I'll stick to my blender brush cleaner. 🤷♀️
Beat thing EVER!
Ashes21 from Texas
I can slack on cleaning my brushes from time to time. Especially during the pandemic since I'm not wearing makeup everyday due to working from home. But I needed to clean my brushes and I already use IT products and I thought I would give this a shot. ITS AMAZING! Cleans and dries fast! The only issue I have is with the spray nozzle. It sprays out wide and ends up everywhere and I feel like it wastes a lot that way. Other than that, it's great!

This product gets my brushes clean and a little goes a long way. Happy it's in a spray bottle. Smells good and does not irritate my skin!
I love this brush cleaner!
DDuLion from West End, NC
It's fast and effective. The only negative is that the spray mechanism has failed several times and I have had to pour it into another spray container. Nevertheless, It is great stuff!!!
Works better than I expected
swearingino from Louisville, KY
If you're like me and never remember to clean your brushes until you need to use them again, then this product is for you. An Ulta Beauty consultant recommended this, and I immediately went home to try it. It cleaned all of my brushes immediately. It also dried immediately. No waiting required. The only thing I dislike is the lemon pledge like scent. Luckily it dissipates rather quickly.
A Fantastic Brush Cleanser!
Attila The Shopper from Erlanger, Kentucky
This does a great job of easily and quickly cleaning any makeup brush, be they natural or synthetic. This doesn't take the place of weekly cleaning of makeup brushes, however, since this doesn't deep clean. But this is fantastic as a quick brush cleanser, especially if you're makeup brushes multi-task, as mine do! This IS rather pricey, so I recommend that you purchase this on sale, if you can. This does have a light lavender scent to it, as lavender oil is in the cleanser to condition the brush bristles. I recommend this product highly!

Love the way this product performs. Cleans my brushes well, just wish it wasn't so expensive.
Great for quick clean, oily residue
Abi's Makeup Loves from Sacramento
It's good if you just want a quick clean in between use. I didn't notice transfer of color but the bristles are still stained no matter how many times you spray & wipe. That required cleaning with water & soap. This product also leaves an oily residue on any surface it comes into contact with so you'd need to wipe down the brush handle after use. The oily residue also makes it feel like the bristles are never completely dry when you apply your eyeshadow. Scent is pleasant & doesn't transfer. Overall, it allows a quick clean between uses but performance doesn't justify price tag. Get it when It Cosmetics is having a sale.
best thing to ever happen to my brushes!
eddie from silver spring, md
This stuff works WONDERS!! It cleaned them so well they were almost back to being completely white. It also took no time, this stuff is so cheap and my brushes dried instantly! The spray also smells like they bottled a Lush Store, it's amazing!!
great for cleaning brushes!
katie from Michigan
I love this product! It's great for cleaning brushes. I like it better than a shampoo because you don't have to wait hours or even a day for the brush to dry! I wouldn't recommend using it for deep cleaning sponges. Instead, I would recommend using a balm for sponges.
Julianne I. from California
Let me start off by saying I was skeptical to say the least. I even called my sister to tell her I bought a $20 brush cleaner that doesn't require water, we both laughed and she said yea right. I don't know what type of sorcery was involved in the development of this product but I am here for it. It is AMAZING! My brushes look brand new! I used half the bottle cleaning all of my brushes and I'm repurchasing another!
Celza from Pecos, Tx
I had a brush that need to be clean so bad. No matter what I would use nothing would get it close to being clean until I used this product. I did have high hopes to getting the what tips back but after a few sprays and wipe it got majority of the white to come back.
Emily from Dallas, TX
I was not impressed with this cleaner. It was very oily, and I could barely tell a difference in my brushes before and after even after using it multiple times.
I will buy it again
Sugar Bear from Ohio
Hadn't cleaned my brushes for a while used this cleaner and got them really clean
Great for long lasting brushes!
Sarah from Seattle, WA
This is my second bottle of this! The first one lasted for over a year! I love that you can just spritz a little bit of the product on a cotton ball or towel - so you don't use too much! I use this primarily to clean my angled eyeliner brush. I use waterproof gel eyeliner every single day. This cleaner helps me quickly and thoroughly clean that brush every single day and has helped elongate the useable life of my brushes -which in turn saves me money! Love this product!
Actually works well, quick, easy
Mmei from Atlanta, GA
This stuff actually works very well. Its an oily mixture it seems like, but it gets my brushes clean. So much easier to use than diy cleaners.
Kerryann from Derby, NY
Used on my makeup brushes I couldn't believe what two sprays got out of my brush
Great brush cleaner
Bootgirl from Jonesboro, AR
Cleans brushes remarkably well.
Nothing cleans my brushes better than this !
Aesthetics Gal from GrandBlanc, Mi
I have tried to clean my brushes with a mild soap in the past but could never get them completely clean. I took a 2 year old foundation brush and sprayed it with the brush cleaner and the foundation comes off effortlessly !! It took several sprays and a large clean rag to wipe it onto but it came out looking like new .
Bottle didn't spray.
BAMALAM from Hixson
It cleans my brushes very well but the sprayer on the bottle didn't work.
Rompy from New York
Makes my brushes look like new and luv the smell
Do Not Like
LG from NORTH CAROLINA
This spray does an OK job at "cleaning" brushes, but in my opinion, no replacement for washing your brushes. Also, it is oily and greasy so be careful where you spray it. I'm sure it's oily to condition the brushes, but I'm not a fan of the greasy film it leaves on my vanity and my floor.

Easy to use. But use a wash cloth you don't plan on using for something else
