Most Helpful Positive Review First Brush Shampoo and the Only One I Will Use
I own only E.L.F makeup brushes and have oily combination skin so I need to clean my brushes to reduce acne breakout but I don't want to spend loads of cash on a brush cleaner so I purchased this one over the summer and not only am I still on the first bottle I have barely made a dent in the product and I clean my brushes once a week at least. This will be the only brush cleaner I will ever use due to the price and the quality of the product.
Most Helpful Critical Review did they change the formula? very disappointed..
I first tried this brush shampoo YEARS ago, and loved it so much I ended up buying like 4 bottles of the stuff. I finally ran out and re-ordered just a few weeks ago, and I'm almost certain they've changed something about the formula or the ingredients (the packaging is different, which is usually how you can tell they've changed something in the product's ingredients). I don't know exactly what they changed, but it doesn't work quite as well as the old bottles of this that I had..it doesn't lather as nicely, and seems to have less cleaning "power." Well, I only bought two this time, so it's not too much of a loss.. I'll keep using it until I run out again, but I won't be repurchasing this.

I like this for cleaning my tools. Its cheap and gets the job done.

This doesn't clean makeup off brushes or even my fingers at all. I had to use so much product to attempt to get it to clean off anything and it did not work for me at all. Sorry but this one failed me.

I first tried this a few years ago and yes it's so effective at cleaning brushes! it's even good at removing oily products. You don't need to use much at all to get an effective cleanse. My method of cleaning is I like to put about half a dime size amount on a plate, add some water and swish my brushes on the plate in circular motions - and watch all the product come off the brush! You don't need to use much of this product for it to do its magic! And it leaves your brushes soft and clean and ready for the next use.

Bought this a few days ago as part of my christmas gifts for my relatives.
The bottle is a hassle
Jane from Huntsville, AL
Cleans brushes very well. The bottle is such a hassle to squeeze, I have to take the top off for good measure.
Maddie from Kentucky
This brush shampoo got all of the old makeup out of my brushes!! Definitely better than their spray alternative.
Great for the price

Works great on my brushes for the price.

Absolutely hate! Takes so much to get a lather from the product. I will continue to use because it was cheap. But would not buy again.
Great for the price

Washes brushes very well. I don't find that it affected the performance of my brushes. Also, this doesn't work all that well on sponges, so don't buy this product for that.
Gets you for the price
Gi from New york
It's a good cleanser if you're looking for something light and you don't use heavy makeup to the point your brushes need a deep cleaning this will get a surface cleaning but if you're looking for a real clean brush i would stay clear from this . Also doesn't lather much .

I'm used to clean my brushes with eco tools shampoo but wanted to try this one since I own many elf brushes...and is terrible didn't clean not even one single one of them just no I end up using hand soap and worked better...waste of money
Great for the Price

worked pretty well for the price but , smaller then what I thought
Easy to use!
NareMan from undisclosed
It is working great and does its job. Is absolutely worth the price. I've used it many times and there is still some product left.
catsssssssssssss from undisclosed
after every use the brushes still have that tint of product on them. the beauty blender soap works better, but for the price it is okay.
FarahAisha from Doylestown, Pennsylvania
This is my first brush shampoo and, honestly, I can't see myself trying any other brand. I honestly believed a good rinse would be enough to clean my brushes, but using the shampoo made me realize how deep makeup products stained my bristles. Apparently, my foundation brush was originally white...
Works well considering low price.
Liz from California
I have sensitive skin and wash my foundation and concealer brushes daily which are generally harder to get makeup out of so I use 2 large drops of cleaner to thoroughly clean. If the brush dries with product sometimes I need a drop of shampoo to get job done. I refuse to pay a lot for a brush cleaner and Elf products the price is right. Expensive isn't always the best.
Easy to use & effective!

Love this product! I'm glad I added it to my cleaning routine
Great brush cleaner!
Rabvixen from Los Angeles, CA
I needed some brush cleaner and my usual one has a smell I can't get over. This one works really well and has no smell at all.
Not a fave
Jenica from undisclosed
bought this a few months ago and I am still using it, but only because I have yet to look for another one. it definitely gets the job done and cleans well. but I can't get past the smell that it leaves behind on my brushes. I rinse the brushes out really well but the smell stays for at least a week after washing.
Kylie from Ga
I've always had a hard time cleaning out my brushes and Sponges, and nothing has seemed to work . I love This brush shampoo ! I just soaked my brushes in hot water and rubbed some of the shampoo on them and let them sit for about 10 minutes and then rinsed and it was completely clean!
ashleey from Chicago
I have no idea why the other comments on this shampoo are bad but for me personally this worked amazing! my brushes were pretty stained and it did not take a lot to wash them! I love this for such a great price & WILL be buying again!
Doesn't work at all
Queentulip519 from Hanover, PA
I had to use a ton to get my shadow brushes mostly clean. No amount cleaned my foundation or lip brushes, not even a little. Don't waste your money.
Works well! Will order again.

This shampoo got all of the makeup off my brushes with minimal effort. It does not have a smell, leave residue, or make a mess. My brushes felt like new right after using this shampoo!
Only the price is great
Highlight queeeen from Raleigh
What's good about this product is the price other than that you can go ahead and skip it, I need to wash my makeup brush us after using them for a week I use more than half the bottle before I got through with washing my brushes and they were left dirty will not purchase again
