Before I found the Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge I would use baby shampoo to clean my makeup brushes. When I started using liquid foundation I could never get all the foundation out of my brushes no matter how hard I tried. It was very frustrating, especially when trying to get Revlon ColorStay out of my flattop brush.
I did some research online and came across the Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge. I placed an order for a bottle on eBay, which was around like $3-$4 for 80 ml. The Diaso cleaner is made in Japan, and that is why I order it on eBay, it arrived very quickly, only took about a week or two.
When I received the bottle I went right ahead and washed my foundation brush, and WOW was I ever amazed! My foundation came right off my brush, you could see it pouring out into the sink. My brush looked as good as new after. I continued to wash and condition all my brushes, it was the fastest brush washing session ever.
I have since then purchased several bottles of the Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge and never looked back. It leaves all my brushes and Beauty Blender looking good as new every time. In fact, I think it has helped preserve my Beauty Blender, we all know they are pretty expensive, so I try and make mine last for as long as I can.
The Diaso cleaner is a clear in colour and says that it is fragrance-free. I think it has a smell, which isn’t very pleasant but I don’t care because the cleaner works miracles! The bottle also says that it is a disinfectant which is important when washing your brushes.
I highly recommend the Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge for cleaning your makeup brushes. Trust me, you will never use another cleaner. It is very inexpensive as well, you don’t need much so it lasts for quite a while.
Have you ever tried the Daiso cleaner? What do you think of it? What do you use to wash your makeup brushes?
“I think it has a smell, which isn’t very pleasant…” — finally! A review that actually says it HAS a smell. I bought one last year, and thought that it might be from a bad batch because of the smell (and I also noticed that I was getting pimples when using sponges cleansed by this). Almost all of the reviews I read claimed that it is completely odor-free. And I was thinking kind-of “just-like-water smell”. Anyway, do you still use this detergent, and not have any pimple issues?
Hi Char, do most reviews say it is scentless? I find it has a slight scent. I’ve never broken out from using it and I do have fairly sensitive skin. Do you make sure to rinse your sponges well after using it? I wash all my brushes and BeautyBlender with it. I rinse well after and then follow up with a conditioner. Maybe something in the cleanser is irritating your skin.
Hmm, I think I’m rinsing the sponges long enough. Haha! Although, I also noticed that the slight scent of the detergent is left on the sponge. Does it happen to you, too? I can’t seem to wash it away even after long rinse. That’s why I was thinking before if I got a bad batch.
I think there is a slight scent left behind. But nothing powerful. It’s hard to say. I used the cleanser yesterday on my sponge and I just went and smelt it haha. I think it has a slight scent but it could be the sponge. It’s hard to say. Maybe you should order another bottle and compare. Where did you order yours? Ebay?
I’m currently working in Japan, and I bought mine from Daiso here. Unfortunately, my acne problem seems to get worse whenever I use puff/sponge washed with the detergent, even if I already bought a new one.=(
Hmm your skin must not be liking something in the cleanser. Maybe you will have to find an alternative. I wouldn’t continue using it if it is breaking you out.
