Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Gel Review | How To Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Real Techniques Gel Brush Cleanser Review

Hi loves!

First off I want to apologize for not posting this week except for Monday, or making any videos.  I was very sick with no voice, and then my grandma passed away, so it was a very sad time.  I have been out of it, but she has definitely taught me how to keep strong, along with great work ethic, so I’m happily back.

Today I am going to be reviewing a new brush cleanser that Real Techniques has released.

I picked this up from the Ulta website when they were having their buy one, get one 50% off sale.  If you want to see what else I ordered from Ulta that day, you can watch that here.  

This cleanser was $8.99, and contains 5.1 oz of product.

Normally, I wash my brushes with Dawn dish soap, and olive oil, and not as often as I should due to pure laziness, and how long the process takes.  With this product I definitely saw a huge difference in the amount of time that it took to clean all of my brushes.  Definitely a time saver.

How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes using Real Techniques Gel Brush Cleanser

How to use:

  • Squeeze a dime size amount onto brush
  • Swirl around in hand/or onto cleaning tool
  • Rinse with warm water holding brush downward, so water doesn’t get into the base of the brush causing the hairs to come loose
  • Re-shape, and dry

How to Clean Real Techniques Brushes

Here is a list of what I love about this product:

  1. Doesn’t get too sudsy like a soap would
  2. Smells amazing (the scent stays in the brushes for a long time after washing)
  3. Doesn’t contain alcohol, which tends to dry out brushes
  4. Makes brushes super soft, and fluffy (even better than the olive oil does)
  5. Quick rinse process (you don’t have to swirl the same brush around a million times to make sure the soap is out)
  6. Says to extend brush life (I am not too sure how true this is, since I only began using it now)

As you can see I have many things to like about this product, but I do have one complaint.

  1. It is very easy to waste product!

Since you just squeeze the gel out, it can sometimes be a bit difficult to get product out, and then if you squeeze just a little too hard, too much product comes out, causing it to be wasted.

Except for that one complaint, I really do enjoy using this cleanser.  If I had to re-purchase it, I would, and I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes using actual brush cleansers on their brushes.

    So I just started learning how to apply makeup…well eyeshadow. I’m late I know. LoL
    I have applied & LOVE liquid eyeliner, mascara & lipstick. But not eyeshadows. It’s good to learn what & how to wash your brushes with because even though I may not know much about brushes…one thing I know is if you wash w/certain chemicals the bristles can be ruin.

    This is awesome. I am also a dawn and olive oil person, and for some reason, last time I used way too much olive oil or something and it left one of my brushes oily. I was recently recommended Dr. Bronner’s peppermint soap, so I am going to try that.
