    Comments about Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser:

    Not the best for extremely stubborn makeup, but definitely works great in a pinch for travel, quick color changes on brushes, vanity clean-up, and sanitizing. Gentle but works very decently! Comparable to MAC Brush Cleanser, but a little less potent.

            My new fave! I had never cleaned my foundation brush (gross, I know), but when I used this stuff for the first time, I was amazed!!!! It left my brush feeling so soft and made my foundation apply so smoothly. The only thing I can complain about that is not even worth a star is that I go through it so fast! I would 100% recommend!

            Best Brush Cleaner

            By Madi

            from Chandler, AZ

            Comments about Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser:

            This stuff is awesome! It's the best brush cleaner I've used. It doesn't leave a weird oily residue on your brushes like some cleaners and get the brushes CLEAN clean, even after going way longer than they should between cleanings. It has a nice light smell, so it's not overwhelming when you use it.

            • The only plus is the fact that it has a nozzle

            Cons

            • Poor Quality
            • Takes too much product to get the job done

            Best Uses

              Comments about Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser:

              This isn't worth the hype nor the price. It's not a top performing brush cleaner. I prefer my other brush cleaners over this one. I gave it a fair shot but it just didn't perform the way I thought it would. I had to return it. Save your money unless you don't mind wasting a lot of product for a mediocre and superficial clean.

                I don't clean my brushes but once every 6 months or so. Before this product, I have always used a high quality shampoo and spent forever washing away. Not anymore. This stuff makes the process so much easier! I used about half the bottle but my brushes were filthy! I will be washing more often now :)

                • Q:

                  The instructions on the bottle said to spray, gently massage and rinse thoroughly under running water. But on your web site instructions on how to use it states spray and wipe with tissue. I am confuse. Please advise the proper instructions on how to use this brush cleaner. Thanks.

                    A:

                    Hi! Both are actually correct. When your brush needs a quick cleansing daily, you spray the brush and wipe with a tissue. Once a week we suggest giving your brush a deeper cleanse, and that is when we suggest running it under water and massaging the bristles. You will then lay flat to dry over night and your brush is ready to use again the next morning. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

                    Hi! If you are the only one using your brushes, you can make that decision based on how much product you are able to remove after each use. Some products require a deeper cleansing each time, and others may not. You can use your best judgment. Happy Holiday's from Clinique!
