My makeup brushes are squeaky clean! I saw reviews that stated, "did not get my brushes completely clean", so I was very skeptical. However, I believe that individuals were letting the makeup sit on the brushes for a lengthy time before cleaning them. If you clean them immediately after using, the brushes come out looking like new. It is perfect for foundation brushes, but a little trickier to use with eyeshadow and lipgloss brushes. However, I no longer have to sit and scrub brushes by hand and get it all over me. This has made my morning routine so much simpler!
