This product works great at cleaning the brushes I use for liquid makeup products, like foundation, BB cream, and lip stains--I have another product that I use for the powder-based products (Bare Escentuals brush conditioner). I spray a few pumps of the product on the brush, let it soak in a bit, then start moving the brush in circles on a stack of paper towels. The leftover product residue comes right off onto the towel. Repeat as necessary then leave out to dry. Result = good as new, without a trace of old foundation or eyeshadow residue.

The only downside of this product is the smell. It's heavily citrus-y, and honestly, I'm not a fan. But the product does such a good job that I can deal with the slightly chemical orange scent once in a while.

I wasn’t sure what makeup brush cleaner to buy while browsing so I bought the one that seemed the most legit but was fairly priced - Japonesque. I purchased the rosewater scent and love it! You can definitely smell it on your brushes for a week or so after cleaning them, so if you’re sensitive to smells maybe unscented would be best. This cleaner has gotten to the job done as best as I could hope, and has lasted me a long time! (Even with me being very generous with the sprays when cleaning) I would recommend!

This is one of my favorite brush cleansers for a good deep cleanse. It does get kind of soapy and bubbly in the brush so I like to rinse mine although I do know a few professionals who like to use this as their quick cleanser. I think that it smells absolutely wonderful which is probably one of my favorite things about it. It’s a nice light scent that doesn’t overly linger on the brushes which I have found in other cleansers. I also love that it comes in a larger size than most.

Review for: Japonesque Makeup Brush Cleanser more...
This was one of the first brush cleaners I tried and sadly it didn’t work for me . I found that this made my brushes oily after they dried . Like it had a oily residue on it and then Id have to wash my brushes to get rid of that oiliness . And I wanted a brush cleaner to clear my brushes in between when I do makeup on clients . And this brush cleanser didn’t do that because it made my brushes oily and I can’t apply makeup with oily brushes you know . The only thing that’s good about it is the smell . It has a strong citrus smell but other then that I was very disappointed with this . But yeah I don’t recommend this at all .

I appreciate the fact that this cleanser comes in larger size options. As a pro makeup artist I burn through brush cleanser faster than most people use a roll of toilet paper. With that said, it’s just a cleanser that I pick up to use when I can’t find my favorite gel formula made by a different brand. Like I said, it works, and even though it’s not my number one choice, the fact that it comes in a large volume option earns 4 stars from me all on its own!

This stuff is amazing!!! If you are applying makeup and need to use the same brush for something else this is the answer to clean it. I just recently purchased it. I use it when doing my eyeshadow, it works amazingly when you need to clean your blending brush really quick and get another use out of it. It left my blending brush spotless and dry! Would definitely recommend!

I really like this brush cleaner it works wonders. Even gets dried eyeliner off brushes and cleans beauty blenders like no other!! The only down side is it’s kinda pricy and because you have to use a decent amount the bottle doesn’t last that long . I have over 200 brushes (embarrassing I know) but it only gets me through about 2 good cleanings

I use this everyday. I use this to clean my brushes quickly after I’m done using them. It really takes the make up off. Once a week i do a deep cleaning on my brushes. It nice to use if your using different colors and u don’t want to get a muddy look. I spray and then clean off with a wash cloth and then go into a different color.

So far this is the only cleaner that I use to clean my brushes is the only thing that gets all of the make up out of my brushes without damaging them it’s easy to use when I travel and I make sure that I have a towel to use when I spray this on my brushes and I just sprayed on the brush and yeah it makes clean up a lot easier

I've been looking at different brush cleansers, and this one has caught my eye a few times. How fast does it dry?
