Name: Essence of Beauty Brush Cleaner
Product: 0.5 / 5
I couldn’t find a picture of this cleaner online, and I didn’t want to waste my time taking a picture of it myself. This product comes in a clear bottle with a spray cap. It says Essence of Beauty Brush Cleaner on it, in black font. I have been torn between posting a review on this product or just forgetting about it. I decided to write a review on this because I did not want another beauty junkie purchasing this.
OK, on to the review:
I DESPISE this product. Plain and Simple. This cleaner contains alcohol as one of it’s first ingredients, which is a MAJOR NO NO to when it comes to brush cleaners. Alcohol is an extremely drying product that can literally ruin someone’s makeup brushes. When it came to this “brush cleaner’s” ability to clean my brushes, it took several sprays of cleaner to clean an eyeshadow brush, and even then barely any product came off. I used this cleaner on brushes that I had not used with cream products or foiled pigments.
So basically it took many sprays of product to clean one eyeshadow brush with dry powder on it. The brush wasn’t even all that clean after me trying to clean it. The brush felt very dry and brittle after I cleaned it, thanks to the alcohol.
Final Thoughts: This products just blew chunks when it came to doing what a brush cleaner was supposed to do. The only good thing about this product, hence the .5 rating is the bottle, because I used it for my MAC brush cleaner solution. The bottle is perfectly sized to mix a little brush solution at a time, without making too much. So if you find yourself with a bottle of this stuff, dump it out immediately and get yourself some decent cleaner. Your brushes will thank you!
Have you ever ran across a product that is soo completely horrible that you want to hurl it out of the window and watch it get run over by a steam roller twice? Me too, which is why I am starting a special series called “Black Listed” in which I listed products that are so horrible in my opinion that they need to be destroyed.
However not everyone will agree with my thoughts and opinions, but it’s my blog so… . Look for the first installment of Black Listed in the next day or so….
