Japonesque Solid Brush Cleaner || Review

Friday, September 25, 2015

Brush cleaning, every beauty addict and makeup artist has to do it, it's something that cannot be avoided. But, what you use can determine how long it takes and how long your brushes will last. A good brush cleaner should be able to remove all color, bacteria and product from not just the top of the brush, but deep in the bristles. There are a lot of brands out there that do brush cleaners, but I have found them to feel oily and seem to be more designed for on the spot cleaning rather than deep cleans (such as Mac brush cleaner, as i was told by an employee its an on the spot cleaner). For me I have been washing my brushes with oil/washing liquid combo and baby shampoo, I would highly recommend the baby shampoo as its far less hassle compared to the oil/washing liquid combo. But, recently I have discovered a new kid on the block and it has revolutionized the way I clean my brushes. The Japonesque Solid Brush Cleaner, is one of the strangest things I have ever seen and owned. It is very similar to a facial balm, but a lot harder and has cut my brush cleaning down but over half.


The packaging looks professional enough, in its black pot and white label. It contains goats milk, which is supposed to help nourish and keep the bristles soft. I know, I know the thought of goats milk doesn't sound like it will smell nice, but fear not it has a very nice scent in deed. When opening the lid you are hit with the most luxurious scent of a sort of clean smelling musk, which for me is heavenly. It is strong and does make the brushes smell the same as well, but I have found that once you start using makeup on them the smell disappears. Along with the scent, is the sight of the balm, and trust me there is a lot of it. The pot may not be big but it is deep and you don't really make a dent in it when you use it. I have used it for several months now and it still looks new. Using this balm couldn't be more simpler, just wet the brush, swirl it on the balm until you get foam, swirl it on your hand, then rinse. It is so quick and easy, you can speed through your brushes in no time. However, as the pot is small I wouldn't recommend it for very large brushes, such as the Real Techniques Powder Brush (basic), as there isn't much room to swirl and being very dense it needs a few goes. But, it is perfect for all other brushes, especially eye brushes. When I have created bold colorful looks this is my go to product every time to clean the brushes, it is so quick and easy, I have cleaned 10 eye brushes in like 2 minutes.


I would highly recommend this product, it just makes cleaning brushes that much easier and quicker. I personally have found it more enjoyable and so helpful when you have about 50 brushes to clean. Not only is it quick and easy to use, but great for on the go, so if you are a makeup artist then you need this in your life. I'm personally taking it on holiday with me as it is so useful.


What are your favorite brush cleaners??

Stay Gorgeous
