Real Techniques Deep Cleansing Brush Gel
Worst cleanser I've ever used
This product is a complete waste of money: it does a poor job of properly cleaning brushes, it's hard to rinse out of the brushes, and it comes out of the bottle badly, leading to some product wastage. I'd spend the extra few quid and buy MAC's brush cleanser, it's MUCH better than this and gets your brushes thoroughly clean with little effort!! Spare yourself the money, don't buy this one.

Disappointing I'm afriad!
As a huge fan of the entire Real Techniques line, i was extremely excited to give this product a go!! However, I found that this gel just doesn't get right into the nitty gritty of my brushes. It's decent for eyeshadow, blush brushes etc but for my liquid foundation/concealer brushes, it just doesn't work! Also, I don't like the way that you dispense the gel. It's difficult to control the amount you squeeze out. I think I'll stick to my trusty Baby Shampoo for now. Hopefully RT see this review and make some improvements!

Poor product. It doesn't get brushes clean - it's taken me 5, 6 goes to get a foundation brush 'almost' clean.
It takes an age to rinse out fully too, and has left some of my brushes sticky.
Finally, the bottle is poor also. It has a strange dual holed dispenser in the top which is really hard to control and squeeze the gel out of.
To be clear, I wash my brushes every single week, and have given this at least 4 weeks of trial, on both synthetic, natural haired and dual fiber brushes - from luxury brands, to Boots' own and Real Techniques own brushes too. The result was the same.
I'd highly recommend using a 'proper' brush cleaner, and not this one. In the many years I've been buying brush cleansers, this is the worst I've used. The No7 one is okay for quick cleansing, but not a deep clean.
