REVIEW: Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Brush Gel

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Firstly apologises that this post is late because I normally post on Tuesdays and Fridays, things have just got a little busy at the moment!

So let's crack on, so as you can guess by the title today's post is about brush cleanser that Real Techniques have brought out. I first noticed this through their instagram and new I had to check it out, my local boots didn't stock it, so I guess you can only get it from bigger stores. I've been testing this product out now for around a month so i've definitely put it to the test, so let's begin the review.

The basics, this product costs £7.99, and is only available from Boots by the looks of things. The ingredients:

  • Aqua

  • Sodium Laureth Sulphate

  • Cocamidopropyl Betaine

  • Glycerin Sodium Chloride

  • Propylene Glycol

  • C12-13 Alkyl Luctate

  • Fragrance

  • Peg-150 Distearate

  • Sodium Benzotriazolyl Butylphenol Sulfonate

  • Tributyl Citrate

  • Buteth-3

  • Tris(Tetramethylhydroxypiperidinol) Citrate

  • Tetrasodium EDTA

  • Citric acid

  • BHT Methylparben

  • Propylparben

  • Methyl-Chloroisothiazolinone

  • Methylisothiazolinone

Boring information out of the way onto the packaging:

I hate the packaging, the packaging as you can see from the picture is a white bottle with pink RT written allover and black writing for everything else that needs to be stated on the packaging, with a black cap, that you push up, it opens a little and the product is suppose to dispense from, BUT the actual product itself is to thick for it to even come out, so you have to take the whole cap off, which means you waste product because too much comes out this way. So overall the packaging is a big no no!

Moving onto the product itself, it does have a slight scent to it, it's nothing overpowering it's subtle, it's kinda a floral yet fresh scent (I could be completely wrong). For me the product is nothing amazing yes it cleans my brushes well, sometimes with foundations brushes or any stain brushes i've noticed it does take a few tries to clean them using this product but I would be lying if I said it doesn't work because it does, for me for what this product is I think it is a little overpriced because at the moment I use baby shampoo and that works wonders and is cheap whereas this is designed for cleaning makeup brushes.

How to use it?

Real Techniques say:

  1. Use this cleanser weekly

  2. Dampen the bristles in warm water

  3. Squeeze a drop of the gel onto the bristles

  4. Rub between fingers and rinse until clean

  5. Reshape and dry flat or upside down

The question is would I repurchase this? And the answer is no simply because I personally don't think it is amazing because the baby shampoo does the exact same but cheaper, but it does work and it does leave my brushes feeling clean and soft.

Thanks for reading!
