Daiso Makeup Brush Cleaner


Daiso Makeup Brush Cleaner: $39 NTD


With it being equivalent to less than £1 at the current exchange rate, I didn’t really have much expectation on how this would perform but I was quite pleasantly surprised. To use this, I had poured some into a container, dipped my brush in, swirl it around on the palm of my hand and then rinse. This way wasn’t too bad but for better results, use it in conjunction with a brush cleansing mat, glove, palette, etc to get a deeper clean.

Brushes are clean if they’ve been used with powder products. I did find that if they’ve been soiled in liquid or cream products, it doesn’t clean as well. It’ll require a few more washes to get it all cleaned off. It didn’t work well with my beauty blender due to the cleaner being a watery consistency. The brushes drink up the cleanser due to its consistency so I end up refilling the container.

There is a slight chemical smell which may be bothersome for some people. The best way to describe it is it reminds me of superglue, a faint, weak, super glue scent. It doesn’t linger onto the brushes once they’ve dried though. The chemicals do dry my hands a bit so if you have sensitive skin, it’ll be harsh. I 100% recommend you use this with a cleansing mat, glove etc.

For the price, it’s pretty decent. It helps cut the cleaning time down by a lot. There is a downside though. You can’t purchase this easily as there are no stores in the UK or Europe. Wish I had just purchased more whilst in Taipei. Once this is empty, I’m going to go back to the trusty baby shampoo.

Do you use a brush cleanser?

    I don't use brush cleansers at all but this £1 is a worthy price lol

    That is surely a great price for brush cleaner, and it is great that is cuts down on the time that it takes to clean them. It's too bad you cannot buy it in Europe, is there a way to buy online from Taipei?

    Sounds good for a quid! We don't use make up brushes but sure this would be useful for others.

    £1 what a great find! I normally use my dr bronners soap and sigma mat to clean my brushes xo

  6. Melanies Fab Finds says:

    No i will admit I have never used a brush cleaner, I just use soap and water and brush it all over my hand which generally does the trick. I think these can be useful for those with a number of brushes as it must make cleaning them faster.

  7. I've never used a brush cleaner. i tend to run under water but I guess if you have expensive brushes it us important to look after them x

    I use brush cleaning soap most often as I find it gets off tough foundation and things much easier x

  10. Elodie says:

    I usually just use baby shampoo or the MAC spot cleaner if I'm in a hurry, but this doesn't sound too bad!

    Also, WE HAVE DAISOS IN THE UK?!!!! Where?! I swear I've never seen one in London! I hear their stationery is a-mazing too!

    This is such a bargain and a great find!

  16. Teresa Bowen says:

    I like products that can be used for more than one purpose and while they superglue smell puts me off the idea of using this on makeup brushes it might be perfect for some of my art brushes.

    I do love it when a product you don't expect a lot from actually turns out to be pretty good!
