This brush cleanser did not work as well as MAC but that’s to be expected, given the price. And I would pay for this cleaner, especially to do spot cleaning on my brushes between deep cleanings.

Price: $5

Where to Buy: coastalscents.com

Pros:

Gentle on the brush

Cons:

Not deeply cleansing, compared to MAC Brush Cleanser

 

 

Packaging: Standard bottle of brush cleaner…pop-top cap, dribbles out too much product. Recommended to place cleaner in a smaller spray bottle for ease of use. Large bottle for the price.

 

Review:

This brush cleaner worked okay. But I already own MAC brush cleanser and found it to be superior. It’s hard to not compare them and it’s sort of unfair to Coastal Scents, I realize. But the point for this evaluation was whether my brushes simply came clean or not. Coastal Scents makes a cheaper product that doesn’t do the job quite as well as the  more expensive product. Maybe this is a good thing, maybe in five years I’ll have brushes in better shape because this version is more gentle on the bristles. I do know, as a side by side comparison, my brushes still looked grimy after using the Coastal Scents Purifier. I spot treat my brushes using the TiffanyD/MAC method of  making little wet spots on a folded napkin and swirling in different spots until the brush comes clean.

Overall

However, for the price, maybe I could handle giving my brushes a second swirl. A deep cleanse, with water did yield better (still not perfect) results. But what good is a brush cleaner that I can only use for deep cleanings? That’s more of a brush shampoo. Even as a brush shampoo, it was an inferior product to my other methods (dish soap + olive oil, MAC brush cleanser). Not a bad product and definitely an economical choice.
