Maintain the beauty of your brushes and sponges with the Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser Cleansing Balm. Effective formula quickly removes makeup buildup to deep cleanse your brushes and sponges for effortless professional cleaning. Freshly scented and coconut scented solid formulas deliver instant mess free results and are the perfect travel friendly cleansing companions.
Moisten the brush head or sponge and swirl gently over the balm surface until the lather has lifted away makeup buildup and brush or sponge appears clean. Thoroughly rinse and gently squeeze out excess water. Dry excess moisture with a terrycloth or paper towel; reshape brush bristles and lay flat to dry. Drying time will vary according to brush type and thickness or size of sponge. Ensure brush or sponge is completely dry before re-using. Rinse the balm quickly under running water or wipe the surface to refresh the balm.

Precautions: For external use only. Keep out of eyes. In case of contact with eyes, flush with water. Contact a physician if swallowed. Keep out of reach of children.

      Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser Cleansing Balm:

      I originally got this last year in an Ipsy bag. Took me awhile to use it because, let's face it, we don't clean our brushes as often as we are supposed to. It cleaned great but that's not what sold me, it was the SMELL. My brushes smelled like heaven. I didn't want to use them. I made my bf smell them. Made my bff smell them. Anyone that uses brushes Def needs to try these. I will use this until the day I die.

      Best brush cleaner I've found...yet!

      Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser Cleansing Balm:

      I've used this cleaner (goats milk) for my wet foundation brushes, my powder brushes and my eye liner brushes... OMG! Easy, quick and leaves the bristles soft as if they're brand new. I can't wait to try other Japonesque products! This is truly worth the purchase. Check. It. Out! You can't go wrong ladies!

                    Comments about Japonesque Solid Brush Cleanser Cleansing Balm:

                    This is my second review of this product because I'm obsessed! I've used both the coconut and goat's milk, which are both great but I prefer the goat's milk because I feel it left bristles softer and the coconut (for lack of a better term) made kind of booger-y lumps in the lather.

                    I posted a photo showing before and after with a heavily used dual end shadow brush. First photo with the product depicts the first round of swirl and lather, the second lather pic was how clean it bright it was after rinsing the brush AND the surface of the balm. Minimum effort, probably less than a minute per brush head and it came out bright and clean.

                    Foundation brushes take a bit more effort but will come out just as sparkling clean. I use It Brushes Brush Bath spray after every use with foundation brushes so I rarely have to deep clean them anymore.

                    This cleaning balm is amazing! I recommend it to everyone who cares about their brush collection.

                        I am in love. I used to always clean my brushes with alcohol and I got this in my Ipsy bag. My brushes ran clean almost instantly and looked new. Will definitely be buying this.

                        This brush cleanser is amazing!! It really deep cleans all of my different makeup brushes, smells great, leaves no residue and lasts awhile! Also, so much easier than cleaning them the traditional way. It is on the pricier side in my opinion, but definitely worth it!! Would definitely purchase again!!

                          I have extremely sensitive acne prone skin and check EVERYTHING I consider putting on my face for comedogenic ingredients. This has four ingredients ranging from mildly comedogenic to highly comedogenic. I understand that you rinse the product, but does any of it stay behind/is there enough to cause acne?

                            If brushes are rinsed properly and thoroughly, no residue will be left behind and we've received no indication acne may be caused. Make sure to allow to dry fully before using.

                        • Q:

                          I have been looking for a good brush cleaner and beauty blender cleanser, but I have very sensitive skin. I have contact dermatitis, so I have allot of allergies to many different scented things. I was curious if I should just try the unscented one only, or if the coconut scented one would be ok to use as well? Thanks!
