Etude House Puff & Brush Cleaning Mist REVIEW

Since I did the “My Most Used Makeup Brushes” post over here, I think it is the perfect time to review a brush cleaning product. I used to use mild shampoos but decided to test this out during a 50% off Etude House sale. I picked up the Shower Cleaner too but this is the spray type cleaner. Keep reading to find out if this works!

I love using makeup brushes to do my makeup; it adds a glamour quotient to the makeup in my opinion. But brushes need to be cleaned and that is why I refrain from using them until I can (can you tell I am a lazy bum?) I apply as much of my makeup as I can with my fingers 😉 Despite my laziness, I am diligent about keeping my makeup brushes clean! I employ spot-cleaning and deep cleaning techniques to keep my brushes in optimum condition.

For spot-cleaning, I have been using the Etude House Puff & Brush Cleaning mist. It comes in a translucent white plastic spray bottle. I have travelled with it and find it pretty travel-friendly. In terms of cleaning, this cleaning mist is a good shortcut to clean brushes.

In my experience, it does get off makeup from the brushes but I do some residue left behind which does not go away until I wash the brush. I also feel that there is a slight oiliness to the brush that does not go away after using this. Besides, it does not smell very nice. I get headaches if I have too many brushes for spot-cleaning.

I like deep cleaning my brushes and employ a simple method of wiping the brush on a dry tissue to take off excess product for getting more uses out of brushes in between washes.

Rating: 3/5

Recommend: Maybe

Repurchase: No

I have given this 3 points only because it is convenient to use and also that it cleans out a lot of the product from the brush. I will not be repurchasing this though since I have to use a lot of spray to clean a few brushes and it becomes a bit expensive. If you are diligent about spot-cleaning your brushes, this might be the product for you. I find washing brushes with shampoo therapeutic so I will stick with that.

Have you tried any Spray type makeup brush cleaners? How often do you clean your brushes?
