Most Helpful Positive Review Perfect
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 used it while I was doing my make up, I cleaned my brushes right after I aided them and they came out absolutely perfect. They were not soaking wet and I did not need to leave the flat out to dry. I was able to place them back in my brush bowl.
Leaves brushes clean & soft
HonestReviews from Atlanta
It's a little oily going on but it smells like essential oils - it's actually a really pleasant scent, not overpowering. It definitely cleans the brushes, quickly and thoroughly with no fuss. Spray and wipe, done. I notice a lot of reviews say it leaves the brushes oily and here's what I've noticed - it needs adequate time to really dry, I clean mine at night before bed or on a day I'm not wearing makeup and have not had any issues whatsoever. I'm really happy with the product and a little goes a long way so I also feel the price is fair. Great product!
The BEST brush cleaner!

super easy to use and dries FAST.
Kendal from VA
I absolutely despise washing my brushes. This is a total game changer. Works great, quickly and dries super fast!
CRM1315 from FL
I was so excited to try this product, but it leaves an oily residue on brushes. It didn't work that great either. It made my skin break out pretty bad, and I know it was this product because I did not try anything else new.
Grim from Houston
Great scent & super fast. A couple spritzes and the brushes are clean. Way less mess & time than traditional brush cleaning. Highly recommend!!
I would buy this again
Ash from Bristol CT
How you use the product is you clean your brush with the brush shampoo and then after you dry it off you spray it on the brush and gently dry it
Fave Weekly Brush Wash
Duchess Merry from WI
I use this for quick cleanings in between my deep cleans. The price is super high for what it is but it is allows me to clean without water which is a huge timer saver. I still deep clean every other week.
Great for reusing the same brush for one makeup look!
Katerina from Tracy, CA
Takes about three sprays to remove a darker eye color. Have to wait a few minutes for it to dry, but not nearly as long as you would traditionally cleaning the brush.
I will never purchase this again.
Amanda from Al
This product will clean your brushes, no sweat... as long as you can get the product out of the bottle, which will not happen after the first couple of uses. Stick to Cinema Secrets for spot cleaning.
A must have

Awesome brush cleaner
Vanessa from Chicago
Used it once cause I needed to clean my brushes BAD and I fell in love with it. This really takes care of your brushes and takes off ALL makeup residue. I always run out and I will never switch up. This has made cleaning brushes easy and quick.
It's absolutely the best product to clean brushes.
Terry from Salinas California
I use this product After I use my makeup brushes to spot clean them.
Lily from Mesquite
This is the only cleaning brush I will use it works great if you have strong colorful palettes highly recommend for cleaning your brushes
A must have to clean your makeup brushes!!
trobins from USA
This works wonders to clean all of your makeup brushes. It's amazing how much yucky excess makeup comes out of the brushes. It is so easy to use and has a nice scent too. I have tried other brush cleaners and haven't found them to be as effective as this brush cleaner.
Best Stuff Ever
MandyK from Knoxville TN
Best stuff to clean your expensive brushes!
Perfect for a quick clean
Lexie from Lancaster, OH
I love this! Cleans my brushes easily between clients & if I need to use the same eyeshadow brush for a whole look while traveling. My only complaint is it almost dries too fast and you have to spray the same brush a few times to clean entirely. However, I would recommend this to anyone looking for this kind of product!
Not the best
Chick from Blue springs, mo
I went to my local ulta to get a new brush cleaner, and they said this one was the best. After purchasing this product I went home to use it, and I was highly disappointed. It made my brushes really greasy and oily. I tried using it with water but that did help at all. I had to use alcohol to get my brushes back to normal
Bflor from Hesperia
This is an amazing product! I didn't think I could clean my brushes without wetting them! This works amazing however the bottle is small so if you haven't cleaned your brushes in a while you might want to buy two although a little spray does go a long way. It doesn't leave the brushes sticky or wet they are completely dry after a few minutes. I recommend this product
Every bottle fails me
Kimmie from PA
I've had three or 4 bottles now I've purchased throughout time, and they all stop working after i use them a few times. The ingredients works great, but the bottle is stressful for me. I can't buy this anymore because getting the liquid on my brushes is a hassle.
Amanda C from Royal oak
It works! It's easy. What else could you need? Before an event I use this on my brushes before applying my make up. My make up going on so smooth. I still wash mine but not as regularly now that I caved and bought this.
Decided to Buy This, Since I've been Upgrading My Brushes.
Agent Snogpitch from KS
I was impressed with how well this restores foundation brushes used with liquid foundation to like-new condition. And the smell is so pleasant compared to the cheaper brands. Since I'm not a huge makeup person (other than primer/foundation/concealer, and maybe a touch of mascara), my brushes are mostly used with liquids. And they get dirty. I used this daily on my foundation brush, and just rub it in circles on a dry wash cloth. I don't feel like I need to use it daily on my setting powder brush. But I at least spritz it on it every other day, then spray it down and brush it across a dry cloth about once a week. Concealer brush, just depends on how dirty it is. If you have expensive brushes, this is what you want to get to take good care of them. The smell and benefits for your SKIN are worth it!
LeeAnna from Greenville
This stuff is beyond amazing. I've been trying to wash my brushes for a couple days now (the super neglected ones) and I sprayed this stuff on and it literally just melted off. It also smells AMAZING.
Amazing! wish they would make a greater quality pump though
Lizzy from Montana
I have really sensitive, acne prone skin, and cleaning my brushes with this definitely helps! The only reason I gave it four stars was because the pump system is cheaply made- when I neared the end of the bottle the pump stopped working and I had to pour it on a towel and then brush my brushes on the towel, which is more of a hassle.
Magic in a bottle
Beach bum from Roxbury CT
I love this product! As someone who hasn't washed her makeup brushes since she bought them this product is a game changer for me. Previous reviews mentioned a wide spray radius but that didn't bother me. For small eye brushes I simply held the brush closer to the bottle to make sure it got coated in product. The mist is fine but one spritz was enough to get 95% of the makeup out of my brushes. For darker colors I had to spray twice but still worked great. I would still do a deep clean once a month or so to get rid of the product build up in between the bristles of the brush especially for foundation and blush brushes. Overall I am 100% pleased with this purchase and will be buying again.
