First, let me state, that I use different methods to keep my +150 brushes clean. There is wet cleaning, done with a shampoo/cleanser and water; then, there is spot cleaning with a solvent. (This product is a solvent-based cleaner.) Depending on what products you use and if you need a quick-drying/disinfectant, this product may be just what you need. (I have on hand, several different brush shampoos and four different solvent-based cleaners. They all have their strengths. Some are more gentle or conditioning to natural-haired brushes, others dissolve product quickly, or dry quicker, or sanitize more effectively.)
I use this product 'as needed'. If I have a foundation brush coated in foundation (silicone-, wax-, etc. -based), concealers, gel or cream eye products, etc., then this product makes quick work of dissolving those products from my brush's hairs. I can then let the brush dry, or choose to then shampoo it to remove any residue.
It works really well. At first, I was amazed at how clean and fluffy my brushes were. I would spray some on a brush and wipe dry with a towel. I left it on its side to dry. I was really happy with it and the smell, while strong, was pleasant enough. I even ordered a second bottle. But, it smelled very familiar. I also had two brushes fall apart.
So, I looked up the ingredients. Shame on me for not doing that before I bought it. This stuff is basically non-toxic turpentine. The limonene is a terpene, or solvent. If your brush is held together with any kind of glue, this stuff will loosen it very quickly. Limonene is used in cosmetics, so it won't likely cause you any harm, but it will not help brushes in the long-run.
Okay I'm seriously in love with this stuff. I've been looking around for makeup brush cleansers. DIY are cheaper but in the end they can ruin your brushes and I didn't want to buy new brushes of the ones I love. At least not for awhile.
I was pleased how easily the old makeup came out of the brush. I used as recommended by wiping with a paper towel afterwards. I do think I used more than recommended of the product while cleaning. However, I had a lot of old makeup to get out AND I made sure to dry thoroughly. I did as many rounds on a brush as needed until the wiping on the paper towel came away clean.
After I did that I made sure to lay them out to dry overnight at least (note: they were fairly dry already after using the paper towel, it's simply a precaution in case any moisture is missed).
So I already mentioned I LOVE the product. I was annoyed with the bottle because it kept leaking. However, it did allow me to test another feature which was the...
