I have been useing this for a while now & I have noticed it does NOT clean my brushes very well at all. Using a small amount of baby wash works way better.

    Comments about ULTA Brush & Sponge Cleanser:

    I needed something to clean everything from brushes, to sponges, to stained cloths. This is perfect for everyday use when I'm done doing my makeup and I'm ready to clean everything up. I just spray this on everything and rinse, then set things out to dry. Then I'm all ready for the next time. It works quickly and without having to use too much, even on dark eye shadows, and waterproof makeup, also set in makeup on brushes.

      Had purchased the mini size of this cleanser bc I didn't think it'd work as good but surprisingly it did! After I used up the mini size I purchased the bigger size..cleans brushes well without scrubbing too hard with warm water.

            Doesn't clean well. Used this to clean eyeshadow brushes and after applying makeup the next day my eyelids were red, puffy, and burning.

            Didn't work at all. Better off using plain water.

                Perfectly adequate brush and sponge cleaner but the smell if really strong and off-putting. I won't be purchasing again due to the odor.

                        A:

                        This formula requires rinsing thoroughly with water. For best results, lay your brush flat to dry after cleaning. Dry time varies.
