Awesome 'in-between' cleanser

This spray cleanser is awesome for between full on cleanings with soap and water. I feel like the many reviewers saying this gets oily or coats the bristles too much are probably using way too much product. With just a couple of quick sprays onto the tip of your brush you can wipe away tons of product from your brush onto a tissue and have a pretty clean brush. This stuff is perfect for when you're using your brushes daily for new colors and want to quickly remove the old coloration on them to start fresh. I wouldn't use it to coat the brushes heavily and try to remove every single particle of product. Soap and water is better for that. However, this can't be beat for removing a lot of product on a tissue so you have a clean slate to use for your next color on a daily basis. I'd recommend using a regular cleaning method once a week or so for deep cleaning, and using this quick spray to clean off the surface of your brush so that you have a nice, clean brush to use with a fresh color and to quickly get rid of lingering surface germs or yuckies. My husband actually threw this into my stocking for Christmas on a wild guess and now I can't live without it. Every morning as I'm grabbing each brush I'm going to use I just spritz the tip lightly once or twice, rub on a tissue I keep out on my vanity and then I have a nice colorless, fluffy, clean brush to use. Just don't use too much! Spray once or twice right onto the end of your brush and you'll be amazed at how much color comes off onto the tissue.

Love the smell. Doesn't take long for brushes to dry. Seems a little oily. Don't think I'll buy it again.

I bought this make up brush cleanser without sampling it and I must say It works wonders! I have brushes that I've had for years and I sprayed a but of this solution and they look as if they were brand new! The bristles are soft and the shadows residues are gone! So happy with this product, definitely recommend.

Easy to Use BUT
Purchased

This is super easy to use-you just spray it on and wipe with a towel. It has an orange/citrus smell to it, which is nice. BUT it does leave an oily coating. I didn't find that it affected the brushes ability to pick up makeup or their performance though-and I used it both with Japonesque brushes and other ones. I try to wash my brushes regularly and this got off makeup I didn't know was still there-it was very thorough.

cleans ok
Purchased

this product does smell nice- orange/citrus scent. But l feel like it coats my brushes and makes them oily after every day use. One of my foundation brushes had clumps of make up that had mixed with the spray and was goopy. l had to fully wash my brush with a regular brush cleaner and let dry. l wash my brushes once a week with special soap and water, but this seemed to coat the bristles.

Just OK...
Purchased

I do not care for this product because it is a bit oily and it doesn't remove all of the makeup from my brushes like other sprays do. I will finish the bottle that I purchased, but I will not be repurchasing.

Cleans OK
Purchased

This solution cleans ok, but it smells odd. The scent is very chemical and makes me wonder about what I'm actually putting on my brushes.

Quick and easy
Purchased

This is so much easier than using baby shampoo (my prior method of brush cleaning). Your brushes don't get soaked, and the makeup comes right off onto a paper towel. The citrus smell is a nice touch, too.

Purchased this as a first time brush cleaner. It was easy to use and smelled great. My brushes were soft the next time I used them.
