This is a great product. It has really cut down on how many brushes I use in a week, and thus how many I have to clean. In the past there have been many times when I have ended up using multiples of the same brush to do one eye look, but this tool keeps me from having to do that. Its definitely not something to replace cleaning your brushes, but it help you not have to wash them as often. I am very happy I purchased this.
