As a pro makeup artist, I have used MANY different brush cleansers. I’ve recently worked on several film sets where this brush cleanser was a staple. After giving it a try I can completely see why. It will break down every type of product from powders to creams (including alcohol-activated products); it sanitizes while cleaning; is fast drying; and it doesn’t leave a film or dry out the brush hairs. Be sure to read the instructions before using as its dip-and-wipe method might be different than what you are currently using. Now, I won’t go without this in my kit!
