      Comments about ULTA Brush & Sponge Cleanser:

      I use this product to clean all my makeup brushes in my kit. I wash them only once every few days so I have to wash multiple times when I do cleanse my brushes. Not really well with my sponges the mitt I purchased to use with this spray tears them up. Overall I love cleaning my brushes with this spray two or three squirts and this stuff lathers very well.

          Comments about ULTA Brush & Sponge Cleanser:

          I'm not blown away by this product but will use it until it's done. It smells great but it also seems to dry the brushes too much. I was honing my brushes would dry to a soft touch, but not so.

          Bought originally for my beauty blender and didn't clean it at all! Actually it made my blender very weak and ripped while cleaning.

          Comments about ULTA Brush & Sponge Cleanser:

          This stuff is great! I have used MAC, ELF, and other brand cleaners and none of them work like this does. It only takes a few sprays to get even the heaviest foundation off of the brushes. Smells great and works really well. Will always buy this brush cleaner.

          • it takes off the makeup really quick
          • Long Lasting

          Cons

          • it has a pretty strong scent
          • not suitable for brushes used by creams/liquids

          Best Uses

            Comments about ULTA Brush & Sponge Cleanser:

            I enjoyed it, and it actually took off the leftover foundation off my beauty blender real easily, but for some reason i noticed that it's not that good of a product for my cream bronzer and my foundation BRUSHES, therefore i have to use my other cleaning product. I do recommend it for powder brushes, and it works quick too. Overall, i would buy it again since the majority of my brush collection is used by only powders :)

              Comments about ULTA Brush & Sponge Cleanser:

              Get wet with warm water first then squeeze brushes and sponges out once then spray solution on sponges and squeeze once to let solution get deeper. Just spray sides and top of brushes after wetting and squeezing. Place brushes, brush side up in cup and let sit for 2 mins. Then rinse & squeeze til completely clean which doesn't take much!

                    A:

                    First wet the brush hairs or sponge with warm water, then liberally spray on the Brush & Sponge Cleanser. Work the cleanser in with your fingers, then rinse under water until it runs clear. Be sure to lay the brush on a flat surface to air dry.

                    A:

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