There are a lot of different brush cleansers out in the market that range in prices from $3 to about $30+. Some are from an everyday brand that you could get at your local walmart or target and some you can only get at makeup trade shows or online. A brush cleanser that I have been using for about 3 years in the one by Mac Cosmetics. Now I haven’t been using this cleanser only because its Mac but because it has never failed me. I do believe that this product does its job. It cleans, conditions, and when added alcohol…sanitizes.
There are some ups and down about it though. I think that it is reasonably priced for the amount of product you get but the nozzle/packaging is so inconvenient. I learned from a friend of mine who is also a makeup fan to mix half filtered water and half cleanser. The cleanser is supposed to be rinsed out when used but when using for spot cleaning…mixing it with water helps distill the product and help you waste less of it. I found a neat trick to carry my bottle with it still looking professional and sleek.
I used an empty Mac Charged Water bottle from 2007 and added half distilled water and half brush cleanser. It has been my best idea yet because its so easy to travel with and it still looks like a Mac product. I like the snap top bottle spray nozzle that the Mac bottles have and I think that I have now made it my go to spot cleaner.
