Well-Cared For Brush Conditioning Shampoo
Leaves your brushes so sorta nd clean after it dries and your makeup turns out flawless. It's a absolute must get!
Really essential...need this in Dubai too!
This is the best cleaner for my brushes -- the other one ('quick change') doesn't do it nearly as well!
Since I live in Dubai, I have to stock up every time I go back to States, but it's really effective and worth it...nothing else will clean your brush bristles/hairs as fast!
Every time I wash my brushes I let them dry for at least 24 hours (sometimes 36 hours) - once they're completely dry, they look and feel brand new...imagine all the makeup particles and skin cells that can build up in just a couple weeks (gross!)
I do a rinse/lather/ rinse to get the initial makeup out, then put some water in the sink with a bit of the shampoo and let it soak for 5-10 mins, then do a last lather/rinse to make sure no color is still coming out.
Really an essential :)
Makes brush care easier
Gotta confess I wasn't one of those chicks that cleaned their brushes a lot. After getting a new set, I decided I should take better care of them. Picked this up and it has definitely made brush care easier. The way I clean my brushes is like this: fill enough lukewarm water into a mug to cover the bottom and up sides a sliver, pour in a dime-sized amount of brush shampoo, fill the mug to near top with more lukewarm water. Put brushes in to soak, at least five to ten minutes, often longer, then remove them one by one and rinse under running lukewarm water to massage out any remaining color with hands. Lay flat on a towel to dry. This works incredibly well and isn't overly time-consuming. It removes powders, shadows, liner shadows, and even creamy make-up like the Buxom Stay-There shadow textures. The only thing it doesn't completely remove is the glitter. Not sure of a fix for that.
Ideally I'd like to wash my brushes once a week, but in reality that doesn't happen and often goes for much longer. Nonetheless, this shampoo has kept my brushes in great shape, doesn't smell of harsh chemicals, and I find it easy to use. I use this in tandem with the Quick Change Brush Cleaner and would rate both as must-haves for brush care. Highly recommend them both.
best brush cleaner ive ever tried!
This shampoo really cleans my BE brushes! A little goes a long way, but this stuff really works! A must-have if you want to keep your BE brushes clean.
MAGIC IN A BOTTLE
WELL-CARED FOR, IS MAGIC IN A BOTTLE !! THIS PRODUCT IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. I HAD SEVERAL BRUSHES ABOUT A YEAR OLD AND I USED THE WELL-CARED FOR SHAMPOO TO SEE IF THEY WOULD BE WORTH KEEPING. THERE WAS MAGIC RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY EYES. THEY NOW LOOK ALMOST NEW. WELL-CARED FOR BRUSH CONDITIONING SHAMPOO IS A MUST HAVE ! NO ONE SHOULD BE WITHOUT THIS MAGICAL, GREAT AND AMAZING PRODUCT. I KNOW THAT I WON'T EVER BE WITHOUT IT. I KEEP TWO BOTTLES AT ALL TIMES. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, A MUST HAVE IN MY MAKEUP CASE.
Amazing Brush Cleanser
I am ashamed to say that I had not been cleansing my baby buki brush as often as I could and the bristles were getting really stiff. I just used the Brush Conditioning Shampoo for the first time yesterday and it totally transformed my brush bristles from stiff to softened. I am really impressed with this product and intend to use it on a regular basis to keep my brushes cleaned and conditioned.
Wow my 5+ year old brushes are totally revitalized. I followed the instructions on the bottle and I would suggest naturally letting the brushes dry on a towel or flat surface. I make sure I put my brushes up high since I have a two year old that likes to sneak around quietly lol. I can't get over how nice these brushes feel after having them for some years and after just one wash (I did the soaking method) they feel like new!
My brushes never looked better!
I used to use baby shampoo to clean my makeup brushes and sponges, but bought this on a whim last year.
I have over 30 BE brushes, and I wash them once a week, and this bottle has lasted me a whole year! My brushes are soft, supple, and perform as well now as they did when they were brand new, some even perform better! (I wash ALL my brushes at the same time, whether they have been used or not, to make sure they stay conditioned. Natural fiber brushes perform best when they are clean and conditioned, as the bristles can dry out between uses. Especially if they have sat for a long time.)
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).
A must have for BE brushes
This shampoo is an absolute must-have for keeping your BE brushes clean and working in tiptop shape. It is gentle, effective, and so easy to use! Just a dab on the brush, a bit of water, work it in, and rinse while rubbing some more.
You'll be absolutely amazed at how much product (no matter what kind of product) comes out the first time you try it! I rubbed the soapy brush around on my palm to get it through all the fibers and my whole hand turned the color of my foundation! Not to mention the Mineral Veil, which is a product that sets your foundation. So it was set into my brush!
I now use this once every other week and my brush performs like new (or better) all the time.
1st time user very satisfied!
Wow! This made the bristles so soft, I hadn't realized they were getting so coarse but I could tell a HUGE difference. All my brushes dried overnight and held there shape, I was worried about fraying but didn't need to! In fact, it improved fraying. I am very satisfied with this product and will order it again and again.
Should be called Brush IMPROVER!
Holy moley! I bought this stuff mostly on faith from reading the other reviews. I am so glad I did. This stuff makes my brushes BETTER than when I first bought them. They are now so soft and fluffy and ... plush. That's the best word I can think of. Buy it. You won't regret it.
Thank goodness for this little bottle of shampoo! I got this shampoo/conditioner as part of my Get Started kit and it completely rejuvenated the other BE brushes I had. My lesson is learned to keep my brushes clean...This shampoo really helps to prolong the lives of brushes and keep them working effectively.
A Must Have!
I don’t think I can ever part from this product. I just love how my brushes feel after washing them with this shampoo, they feel soft and brand new! I have learned to fluff my brushes a couple of times while they’re drying—I have noticed that this helps reshape the brushes to their original shape.
I use this on my brushes and it's the best brush cleaner to use with the mineral make up. I used other products and finally broke down and bought BE's and glad I did. It made a world of difference in the cleaning of my brushes!
It's just amazing how much makeup your brushes hold without evening showing it. Right when you place the brush head with the shampoo rubbed in under the sink you can see the makeup colored water all over the sink. Brushes feel as good as new after washing....
I will never be without this
This is a fantastic product to go with the brushes. I wash my brushes every few months and am amazed at all the product that comes out. Afterward, the brushes feel luxurious. They are soft and feel amazing against my skin. I have had some of my brushes for years and they still feel as fantastic as the day I bought them because of this. Yet another fantastic BE product.
I have to say that before switching to BE I was using a different loose mineral makeup that was alright (better than liquid foundations!). I proceeded to buy a rather expensive foundation brush from this company (nearly 4X as much as the BE brushes). Did they ever mention cleaning the brush? No. Proper brush care? Never. So I proceeded to use this brush for almost a year… and I noticed the performance diminishing.
So when I switched to BE, I saw this brush cleaner and though “Duh! That makes total sense! Why didn’t I know about this before?!?” So I purchased it. When it arrived I didn’t need to clean my BE brushes yet… so I cleaned my other one. WHOA! Like new! Although it took many many washings to get all of the gunked up product and who knows what else… *shudder*
Now I know that my BE brushes (which work just as well as my expensive brush) will continue to do so for a very long time! Proper brush care is a must!
Worth it for your brushes!!
This shampoo is sooooo worth it for your brushes. It is light, but really suds up in the brush to get everything out. Wonderful!
Best Brush Shampoo out there!!!!
I got this as a bonus with my trial package from BE, I had sort of forgotten about it thinking, "who the heck uses a brush shampoo???" until I noticed how orange my flawless face brush had become from using warmth so much. Plus, my concealer brush was looking kind of oily and dirty. I got out the shampoo and followed the directions and was shocked at how much gunk came out of the brushes!!! Also, if the brushes have become misshapen, this is a great way to reshape them. Trust me, if you think this is dumb, it is so not!!! You will be so shocked at how much better your brushes perform and look once you have used this stuff! Thanks BE!
When I washed my brushes with this shampoo, I was utterly amazed at how much makeup was coming off of them!! And after I laid them out to dry, they were as good as new! Great investment!
Thorough cleaning and easy to use
This cleans your brushes incredibly well (and not just your BE brushes), but don't use it as often as is recommended. The consultant I purchased it from said to use it once a week. I found that using it that often made the bristles fall out more easily despite following all instructions & procedures on how to wash & dry the brushes correctly. I've started using it only once a month & I've found that it maintains the softness & effectiveness of my brushes incredibly well.
Excellent product to maintain your BE brushes
I love this. I used baby shampoo previously on my first BE brush, and it did alright, but I felt like the bristles were becoming a little harsh. As soon as I recieved this, I washed my brushes, and immediately felt a difference. As soon as it dried, I could feel how much softer and fluffier the brush was! A definite must if you own even just one BE brush. Lets face it, they are kind of expensive, but well worth it, so protect your investment ladies!!
Maintain your brushes - you won't regret it.
Any quality make-up brush needs to be cared for; cleaned regularly and stored to protect them when not in use. Doing these few steps will ensure longevity and give you the same, if not better, great performance from your brushes as when you first got them new. This keeps the hairs in good condition and prevents distortion of shape, the splitting of ends (yes, several of your brushes are of natural animal hairs) and the falling out of strands. It is SO important that you care for your brushes if you expect them to last and consistently perform perfectly.
I know it may sound tedious, but I assure you it takes no more than a few minutes and will give you in return, gorgeous, soft and long lasting brushes that you will enjoy for many years.
Food for thought: I have my original 'start-up' kit brushes from 10 years ago and they look just as healthy if not better today than the brushes I've been ordering in the past 3 years.
Made my brushes reallllllyyyy soft
I bought this because i noticed I was starting to break out more often than I used to. It totally cleaned my brushes and I could see all the make up that came off it when it went down the drain. It made my brushes very soft, but I guess I would call it frizzy cuz they got much wider than I remember, my Handy Buki brush was a lot denser and now it feels less dense but maybe I just gotta give it a couple days to get back to what it was like before. Still a great buy though.
Extremely easy to use and works incredibly well!
I had been putting off cleaning my brushes for a while. I don't know why but I was afraid that after I washed my brushes, they would lose their shape or be less soft. So yesterday, I broke down and cleaned the brushes that I use almost everyday. It was amazing how much makeup came off my face brushes! And the dark colors that came out of my crease eye brush. This is definitely worth the money and it will lengthen the life of your brushes. If you haven't cleaned your brushes before, you might need to go through and clean and rinse them twice to get all of the makeup out of them. Also, you should dry your brushes flat after reshaping them. While the brushes were drying, I'd check on them and reshape them if they seemed to be drying funny or not drying in the shape that they are supposed to. Now they are completely dry (it takes quite a while for them to dry on their own, so be prepared to not use those brushes for the day) and look great and feel soft too!
To keep your brushes like new I would recommend washing them with the conditioning shampoo at least every other week (I wash my once a week). This product keeps the bristles in great shape and nothing feels better than putting on makeup with a clean brush.
For a while, I was just using a gentle cleanser on my brushes and this is a dramatic difference. It wipes away almost all traces of makeup. It makes my brushes as clean as when I opened them up. And it doesn't take much to make it go a long way. It's great.
I love this product! Whenever I use it, it works very well. My brushes are clean again and very soft. I will definitely purchase this again!
I purchased Well-Cared for brush cleaner about six months ago along with several new brushes and was amazed at the results, my brushes still feel like new even with daily use and the occasional use by little cousins. In addition my sister also bought brushes when I purchased this and has not used well-cared for and you can feel the difference, my brushes feel like they did when I first bought them.
