I first purchased the full size of the Solid Brush Cleaner ($17.00 CDN) during last year's VIB Rouge event and then had a travel size version ($10.00 CDN) sent to me by PR which is seriously, the cutest little thing ever! I use the regular size at home as it is a little but more comfortable to wash larger brushes, but the travel size is so perfect for on-the-go or for eyeshadow brushes.
Inside each size is a solid bar of soap made with argan oil and glycerin - one ingredient to hydrate and one to clean. It smells like a classic bar of soap and comes with a textured pink silicone pad to scrub brushes with. You can either hold the pad in your hand or place it in the lid.
To get started, moisten the bar with water and swirl your brush a few times on top to get a good amount of soap on the bristles. Fully wet your brush and then swirl onto the silicone pad until the brush is clean. When all your brushes are clean, make sure you let the solid soap bar fully dry before sealing it up.
Final verdict: This is SUCH AN AWESOME brush cleaner! I thought I would always like liquid cleaners more, but the solid soap bar lasts so much longer! I have used it for about 8 cleanings now and the size of the soap bar still looks like in the photo above! My brushes didn't feel dry after using this cleanser and even the filthiest brushes were clean within 10 seconds. The only thing about a white soap bar is that it looks positively disgusting now having swirled dirty brushes on it to pick up soap. I will definitely repurchase once I havve run out...in 5 years!
