Most Helpful Positive Review Good Product, Not Perfect
I used to only buy a pink brush cleaner from a well-known three letter brand. It's not exactly on the "affordable" end of things but it's always been a necessity. I found that I could use that product to either do a deep clean in the sink, or put it in a spray bottle and do a spot clean. So, when I saw this, I assumed this would be the same since it was already in a spray bottle. So, the first time I used it, I sprayed it as I would with my other cleaner, as well as the homemade cleaner I made. When I went to swirl my brush on the hand towel to get the product out and wipe it off, the brush lathered up. So, this already was a much-different formulation than the one I was used to. I decided not to rinse it, just so I could test what it would do with my brush (this wasn't an expensive brush, although a nice one, so I wasn't worried about the potential because I have many backups of it). When the brush was completely dried the next day, it had that still-wet appearance, the way the bristles kind of cling together when they're wet, so at first I thought this wasn't going to be a good thing. But, I picked the brush up and swirled it on my hand to loosen up the bristles and they went back to their normal shape and appearance and actually went closer to a new appearance- no "frizziness" like some of my brushes do. This tells me that the brush was conditioned really well since it smoothed the bristles back out to normal. So, as far as the ingredients, it seems to have good conditioners in it.
As far as how well it cleaned, it did pretty well, but not perfectly. I've definitely used other cleaners that perform better at getting the makeup that's really worked into your brush out. This is the reason for knocking off one star.
The smell is a medicinal lavender smell. Not chemically, but an organic lavender scent, which has a medicinal (could be confused for chemical) scent to it. I love all lavender oil scents from medicinal to more floral, so I enjoy the scent.
Most Helpful Critical Review Brush Cleaner
This brush cleaner is a brush shampoo that is applied to a wet brush, massaged into the bristles, and then rinsed out with water. It works very well for cleaning powder product brushes but isn't as effective for liquid product brushes. My eyeshadow brushes always look like new after cleaning with this (instant clean!) but unfortunately my liquid foundation brush never looks 100% clean using this (and because I don't wear foundation every day, I clean the brush every time I apply foundation.) I haven't tried to clean a sponge or other applicator with this product, but I imagine it would be the same result (powder would come out but not liquid.) Also, the smell of this product is pretty awful. I will probably continue to use this bottle until it is finished, but I won't repurchase. I'll be on the hunt for something that can actually effectively clean my foundation brush.

ok, so let me be honest, I wasn't going to write a review because I finally found something that works for those hard to remove stains and it was going to be my little secret. I see it's already sold out so I guess I am late to stock up like I was planning on doing. I have used several brush cleaners including some really high end ones. This by far is the best. I love this stuff and idk why ppl don't rave more about how a little goes a long way.
Cleans so nice

Love this brush cleaner I do find it easier to use with a brush cleaning pad but it's great and cleans wonderful
Kate from Minnesota
Took a few times of spray cleaner and rinse but cleaned brush very easily
Awesome cleanser! Leaves my brushes soft and clean.
Leslie from New York
Awesome cleanser! Leaves my brushes soft and clean. Also used it in a beauty blender sponge recently and it cleaned off the powder and foundation well too.
This cleanser has an essential oil like smell to it that I quite enjoy. Surprisingly, I don't smell it after the brush has dried.
Deep Cleans Well
Redhead from Oklahoma
I was using a solid product to clean my brushes. This is so much better! I can spray product deep into my brushes if needed to get them thoroughly clean. My brushes are so soft and clean after using this! I left off one star only because some brushes needed multiple applications to get them really clean.
I would buy this again and again.
Angie from Columbus, GA
This product was so quick and easy to use. It cleaned my foundation brush really fast; just a few sprays on the brush and a few rubs in the palm of my hand.
Mel from Dallas, Tx
I personally don't like to use this for my brushes, but I love it for my sponges. Makes it quick and easy.
Rachel from Quitman tx
Used this product to clean my sponges and brushes! It's so easy and worked great!
Kelsey from Urbana, Ohio
I used this product to clean my "clean" brushes, and got more out! Obviously better than my old brush cleaner!
Brush & Sponge Cleanser
Elena C. from Port St Lucie, Florida
I personally enjoy using these. I found it cleans my brushes and sponges far more better than my previous cleansers. And the fact that it's a spray, it doesn't require a large amount of product which helps me get my money's worth out of it.
Heather from Ohio
This made it easy and quick to clean my make-up brushes, which is something I'm so bad about doing. I was amazed and disguised at how much came out of the brushes!
does not clean all

All I need
BrianaNicolle from Daytona beach
Works great for what it is and the price warms my heart lol
Not what I was looking for
Makeupbysmorey from NJ
This cleanser implied that it could be used without water, as a type of spray between washes to remove color. It needs to be rinsed, which is not what I was hoping for. I still tried it and find it not as effective as other cleansers. I will still use it, but not repurchase.
Amazing Results - My Brushes Thank You

I have to admit I wasn't good at keeping my brushes and sponges clean. This cleaner works so well that I'm addicted to cleaning all of them! Highly recommend!
Don't waste your money
Chel from North Carolina
Does not clean brushed and sprays out in a jet like fashion, not in a mist
SarahJay from Canton MI
This stuff is so good. My Halloween covered makeup brush I was scared to clean was unrecognizable after literally one spray of this. Me and my sister were fascinated by how well it worked and cleaned every brush we could find. 10/10 would recommend
Cleans so well!
CMC from San Juan,TX
Use this product after applying all of my makeup. Does clean blender with no makeup.
Conditioning brush cleaner
MADA from Raeford, NC
Odd. I love cleaning my brushes and my beauty blenders. Unfortunately, it's not good to thoroughly wash them everyday. I needed a spot cleaner.
Wouldn't buy again

Doesn't clean well. Scent is too strong.

this cleaned my brushes better than I expected!

Love it, always gets my brushes clean
Shelbi F. from Madison, WI
I needed to wash my brushes that have literally never been washed in the 3 years I have had them. I did not want to buy an expensive cleaner, so I thought I would give this one a try. It worked great! My brushes are super clean now. Read the directions before you use it and follow them. I used it on face and eye brushes (a mixture of Morphe and RealTechniques). I did not have any problems with the product.
One spray goes a long way
Ingrid04 from Green Bay, WI
I really love buying this makeup brush cleaner because I can use it to clean my brushes my own way; either by hand/ with a brush cleaner mat or you can add it to the hand held brush cleaner machines. I usually dilute mine in some water and it still cleans really well. A little goes a long way and lasts a long time.
Better than shampoo
taiter20 from GA
Not greasy, easy to use, no residue that I could detect. Purchased on clearance, but pricey otherwise.
