Makes brushes like new This brush cleaner is excellent! It made all of my brushes soft and restored them to like new quality. Even my favorite brush that I have had for 10 (yes TEN!) years. A great buy! 10/23/2014
It's a MUST If you have the "Goat Hair" Brush !!! I have 2 "Goat Hair" Face Brush's that came in the starter kit that I got years ago from T.V. and the Brushes where so hard & irritating to my skin they broke me out Every single time I used them (they say to use only there brushes) so I stopped using all my BM kit :( But like 2 years later after hearing people rave about the product I went into a BM store (got properly shade matched) & purchased this MUST have brush softener/cleaner ! It helped tremendously after just one use :) I'm so happy to have brushes that don't damage my skin anymore !!! 07/18/2014
You must own this I have tried a couple of brush cleaners, this is hands down the best. Very gentle and does an excellent job of cleansing. I wash all my makeup brushes, bm and otherwise with this shampoo and the brushes come out like new every time. Washing your brushes is necessary not only to upkeep the quality of your brushes but also to make sure you get the bacteria out of there so it doesn't cause skin problems on your face. 03/20/2014
Well-Cared For Brush Conditioning Shampoo Just like you need to clean your face of oils and makeup, your brushes need cleaning too! This cleanser foams well and really gets all the dirt and makeup out of the brushes and leaves them like-new again. After washing, lay brushes flat down to dry, and it takes about overnight to completely dry. Tip: I wash my brushes about once a month, and the most-used ones a little more. Tip: For dense brushes, it takes a little longer than overnight; make sure brushes are completely dry before using them or else you'll have to wash them again right away and your face will look cakey. 11/12/2013
Forget the brushes When I received a tube in my kit, I read shampoo! I washed my hair with it. My hair has never looked better, it's sleek, shiny , bright, soft and gorgeous. THANK YOU BARE MINERALS. STOP MARKETING THIS FOR BRUSHES. SELL IT AS SHAMPOO. EVEN BETTER START A LINE OF HAIR PRODUCTS 06/16/2013
Cleans very well! Since BareEscentuals keeps rejecting my views, I will follow their guidelines according to a legal analysis of the website's terms, as reviewed by my attorney. This product cleans very well. Brushes are super clean, everything is wonderful. My only concern is the number of preservatives and non-cleaning agents in the ingredients. I suggest customers do a little research on those ingredients. (BareEscentuals Review Inflation Committee: please note that I did not deail price, other companies, or indicate any specific website). By far, this is truly the best deal on preservatives you can get. Buy lots. 02/28/2013
It's a Must Have! This product is absolutely amazing. When you are using it, you are watching all of the make up that is in the brush coming out in the sink. Once the brushes have dried, you really feel that you have just bought new ones. It is an excellent product to use. 02/25/2013
Excellent but expensive... This brush cleaner does work wonders, but it is expensive for a cleaner. The only reason for the four hearts instead of five is the cost. 02/15/2013
Cleans BE Brushes Well I have been using this to clean all of my BE brushes for a couple of years now, and it gently and thoroughly cleans them all. It has also kept all of my brushes in really good condition. I haven't had to replace any of them, as of yet, and I haven't had a problem with any of the bristles coming out. 01/26/2013
Brand New I love using the brush conditioner. I clean my brushes once a week and it leave my brushes looking brand new. Also when I clean them, my makeup looks even more flawless. Must buy! 12/23/2012

I use a few of Clinique's make up brushes that are supposed to be anti-bacterial. Will my bare minerals brush cleaner strip them and damage their anti-bacterial properties? Or is it only safe for bare minerals brushes?

Answers

A: 
You are going to have to ask Clinique this - most times when brushes have antibacterial qualities, it is the bristles, not a coating. The coating would come off with normal wear anyways.

Most of the time they have 'fibers' that are 'resistant' to holding bacteria. You are better off just making sure you have good brushes and clean them regularly. Even with your antibacterial qualities, its no good if you can't clean them.

A: 
I don't see the harm in using other brushes. For me, I prefer using the brushes that go along with the makeup because they're specially made for the product. The brushes made by bare minerals have bristles made from goat hair or ox hair. They're soft, supple and when worn down, BE has products to clean them to keep them in tact.

I am eager to try out this product, but I don't know how much time I should allow for my brushes to dry. I don't have a back-up set, so I don't want to clean them and then wind up being unable to apply makeup if an event comes up. If I clean them in the morning after applying makeup, will they be dry by the next morning?

Make sure you use a nice clean towel to 'press' the water out. Then, I lightly swipe it back and forth over the dry towel to 'fluff' them into shape.

I leave them out and make sure they aren't on a wet towel. Rotate them, if you are worried. Mine always are dry within 24 hours.

A: 
For smaller brushes, a few hours perhaps and for the bigger ones, possible the next day, but longer than the smaller brushes for sure.

After washing mine, I lay them flat on a face towel on my top dresser with the lamp on (lamp doesn't have to be on though). Let the brushes naturally dry. Don't use a blow dryer. You may dry out the bristles and you don't want that. You will notice a difference.

You can soak the brushes in the brush shampoo or you can wash it by hand whichever you prefer. Wash the brushes with the bristles always facing down to keep water from getting to the bottom of your brush. You don't want the brush to mildew inside.

A: 
It depends on the brush: size of the brush head, density of the bristles, and shape of the brush.

Generally speaking, smaller brushes (like for eye colors/liners) will be dry in as little as a few hours.

Medium sized brushes (for blush and concealers) SHOULD be dry anywhere from 4 to 8 hours. If the brush head is really dense it could take longer.

Larger size brushes (for foundation, veil, etc.) can take anywhere from 6 to 12 hours or longer depending on how densely packed the bristles are. My Soft Focus Face and Handy Buki Brushes take the longest to dry. My Full Flawless Face takes longer than the Flawless Application Brush.

Whatever you do, do NOT give in to the temptation to speed up the process with a hair dryer. You WILL damage your brushes, and it's NOT worth the risk!

I finally stopped procrastinating and washed my brushes, and they were dry within 12 hours. Theoretically, you could put on makeup in the morning, wash your brushes (I followed the instructions and gently pressed out the excess water from the brushes before shaping them and laying them on paper towel, angled down towards my sink) and then be able to use them again that night before going out!

Details: 
The directions on the back of my shampoo (it came with my starter kit) say to "apply a dime sized amount of the shampoo directly onto dampened brush and massage with fingers under running water." It then says in the Note section "Always make sure brushes are completely dry prior to application." I'm confused. Should I wet the brush or not wet the brush before I apply the shampoo. Also, will it make a difference?

Answers

A: 
It doesn't make a difference.

But the 'always make sure brushes are completely dry prior to application' refers to when you USE them, not when you wash them. Your brushes should always be dry before using them to apply your makeup.

Just be sure NEVER to submerge your brushes in the soap/water. Some of the bottles have old instructions that tell you to do so. You will ruin them. Try not to get the handle wet and never soak them. Don't just drop into water and let it sit even for a few minutes. The wood will expand, the 'coating' over the wood will crack and your metal part that holds th ebristles will come off. It was a disaster that lost me a dozen brushes.

I went the brush before shampooing. I put the shampoo in a glass bowl. Like one of those soup bowls. Then I put the shampoo in the bowl and allow the brushes to soak and then later gently massage the bristles.

Another way is to put some shampoo in your hand, wet the bristles and do a swirl motion into the shampoo that's in the palm of your hand as if you're about to apply your BE makeup and wash it that way.

Make sure the bristles are face down when you wash them and laying flat when you dry them. You don't want water collecting at the bottom of your brush and mildew. Let the bristles naturally dry. Don't use a blow dryer. I have never used a blow dryer to my brushes, but imagine using a blow dryer to your hair without putting in a leave in conditioner or some sort of heat protection spray! I don't want my bristles to have that same drying effect so I let it naturally dry and my brushes feel like new.

Here is how I clean my brushes, and they are all in great shape:

1. I squeeze a dime sized amount of the shampoo in the palm of my hand.

2. I run the brush head under tepid/luke warm water just to moisten it. You don't want HOT water (it will dry out the bristles, just like with your hair) and you don't want it COLD (it won't lather well, and the lather needs to penetrate the bristles).

3. I dab the brush into the shampoo, and swirl it across the palm side of my fingers to build a lather. You don't need to mash the brush head with your fingertip, that will only damage the brush. I can wash at least 6 smaller brushes (eye color and liner brushes) with one dime size amount. Medium brushes I can do 3 or 4 easily, although for the largest and most dense brushes I use one dime size dollop per brush.

4. After I get a few brushes lathered, I rinse them under running water, with the brush head pointed DOWN in the direction of the water flow. This keeps the bristles from breaking or getting damaged and prevents shedding. I gently squeeze the water out of each brush head until there are no suds visible.

5. Once the brushes are fully rinsed, I reshape them with my finger tips and lay them flat to dry. You don't want to stand them up or the water will pool at the base of the brush head, which invites bacteria and also softens the glue that attaches the head to the handle. I usually dry my brushes on a microfiber mat (the kind you use for drying dishes on).

I dab the dime-sized drop onto the bristles, work it in for just a few seconds to get it spread out, then add a bit of water to get the lather going. I massage the bristles with my fingertips gently, then rub it around on my palm, simulating how I would apply makeup to my face. (It turns my whole hand the color of my foundation, LoL.)

You are fine to use it. You may just need a bit more to get them clean. Be sure to NOT follow your old bottles instructions about soaking. It'll ruin them, they removed that line in the new bottles.

This shampoo shouldn't expire as long as you use it regularly. I would use once a month to ensure you get the best out out of your brushes. Maintenance is key. It's great to know you have had a bottle for so long and not having to use it as much. It does save you the money. Here are some places I would suggest that sells Bare Escentuals just in case you can't order online:

Ulta
Nordstrom
Dillard's
Bare Escentual's Outlet Stores
Sephora

A: 
In my experience cleaners/detergents don't ususally expire. I have had some products that do have experation dates on them however.

I would do a test in my hand (rub some of the product in your palm) to see if there is any gritty feeling. That would indicate settling and crystalizing of product. Also see how well it rinses from your hand to see if you can feel any residue is left behind.

I guess if it were me, I'd first test it on a brush I don't use much. For example I don't use my handy buki brush as much as I thought. Or snap for the new bottle. After all this product is meant to protect your investment.

Hope this helps.

It doesn't expire. The only reason I would replace it is if it has lost its shampoo-like quality. If it is very runny & thin, or overly-thick & gelatinous, I'd buy a new 1 or at least go to a BE or Sephora consultant & get their opinion.

You should always wash any brushes you use at least once every 14 applications. So every two weeks or every month at the very least.

I usually wash my brushes once a month. It depends on just how much you use your makeup. Less is more to get a flawless look. I have enough makeup to last me years to be honest lol. I used it tastefully and keep my items in a cool, dry place and in a storage bag to keep them fresh and organized.

If you are using your makeup everyday, you should wash your brushes at least once a week. If you only wear your makeup once in a while, they should still be washed at least once a month to keep them in good condition.

1. I squeeze a dime sized amount of the shampoo in the palm of my hand.

Like most of the other answers, I wash mine once every 2 weeks. I use the same brush for both foundation and Mineral Veil. The Mineral Veil "sets" your makeup, so it essentially "sets" in your brush. If you tend to use more Mineral Veil, you might want to wash it more often.

You know what, I had the same thing happen to me with my full flawless brush. It was fine before shampooing and then I shampooed it for the first time and it was all poofy and gaudy looking like those actors in the movie Hairspray lol! I think I'll shampoo it again just to see if I get a different result. All of my other brushes were fine.

I've seen a review somewhere, I can't think of where or maybe it was on the bottle for the directions, to form the bristles with your fingers. So I thought I did that and laid it flat to dry...but I think instead of squeezing the bristles FLAT, I would perhaps trying squeezing the bristles into a more rounded shape.

See if this works and I will try the same!

The trick is to reshape them after rinsing, and make sure that all the shampoo is fully rinsed out to prevent buildup.

Here is how I clean my brushes, and they are all in great shape:

1. I squeeze a dime sized amount of the shampoo in the palm of my hand.

2. I run the brush head under tepid/luke warm water just to moisten it. You don't want HOT water (it will dry out the bristles, just like with your hair) and you don't want it COLD (it won't lather well, and the lather needs to penetrate the bristles).

A: 
Try this: Rewash your brush with the shampoo. When you're done and it's all rinsed out, remove the water carefully via squeezing, but DON'T flick the brush around (such as the tapping motion when we Swirl-Tap-Buff). Instead, carefully reshape the damp bristles with your fingers into their original main shape, then lay it on a paper towel carefully to dry. I recommend putting something under the handle-end (such as a piece of another paper towel rolled up) to keep the bristles angled downward slightly and encourage any lingering water to run out of the brush instead of getting stuck inside. If you reshape it carefully and let it sit, they should go back to the original shape.

Some of the bigger, fluffier brushes do come out a bit poofy after they are cleaned and dried. Once you start using them again after they have dried the poofiness will go down and they will get back to their normal shape.
