It cleans your brushes, but it leaves an oily residue on my brushes, which obviously interferes with how your makeup goes on. If you're looking for a quick clean, I recommend the BareMinerals "Quick Change" or itCosmetics "Brush Bath" over this.

This product cleans the brushes well but the spray sometimes goes too wide and gets everything around the brush head soaked. It's more of an oil feeling cleanser that makes the brushes a little slick.
The japonesque is one of my favorite makeup brush cleansers! I have the tidewater one and it smells phenomenal! It thoroughly cleans my brushes very easily. I would recommend this product to a friend!

This brush cleaner is alright. I do not feel like a spray really removes left over makeup but if you use it a few times a week it would help

This cleanser smells SO good! I use it in between brush washes, & it gets the make up off my brushes really well. It's liquid, but it doesn't really feel wet when you spray it onto your brushes... if that makes any sense. But I definitely recommend trying this product out, especially the rose water scented one! You can buy it at Ulta!

Maybe I'm not using this cleaner correctly but it seems to just make my brushes greasy. Doesn't seem to get all of the makeup off the brushes.

Love this brush cleanser! A little oily but it gets the job done. Just spray a mist on your brush, wipe it off and dry your brush.

It works good but I didn't know it was scented when I bought it. It smells like roses. I would buy again just not the scented kind

Great brush cleaner. I love that I spray it on and it's dry. I can reuse a brush as soon after I spray. There is so crazy scent which I also like.

This cleaner does the job quickly. This was one of the first brush cleaner I have used and it takes off the makeup after quite a few scrubs on a paper towel. That is the only problem I have with this: it takes a while to actually get the makeup off. But it dries quickly and smells great :)

Does this leave a residue on your skin after you've cleaned your brushes with it?

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