A Review on the Daiso Make Up Brush Cleaner Is This 88-peso Brush Cleaner Worth The Hype?

One of the things that I absolutely hate about being a make up lover (and a make up artist) is having to clean my brushes. With the amount of brushes I use on a regular basis, it ends up becoming such a chore because it takes up SO MUCH TIME… plus I am pretty OC with my tool sanitization (hello, have you ever seen Monsters Inside Me??? One episide and you’ll be so paranoid about germs and creepy crawlies, ugh!) I swear, at some point, I even “employed” my little sister while she was on her school vacation to do the brush washing, sterilizing and drying for me hahaha!


I have used everything from alcohol-based brush cleaners to brush shampoo, baby shampoo, facial wash – you name it, I’ve tried it… all with the intention of trying to make this hated chore less bothersome. That’s why when I saw people rave about the very affordable Daiso Make Up Brush Cleaner, I knew I had to check it out. Unfortunately, it was always out of stock at my local Daiso until a few months ago when I saw it as I was innocently (meaning I had no intention to buy anything haha) perusing the Daiso aisles while waiting for my big sister. It was fate telling me it’s about damn time I try the much-raved-about brush cleaner.

I was quite surprised to see how liquid-y the product was. It had a water-like consistency and of course, I was skeptical as to 1) how good it would be at cleaning my brushes; and 2) how affordable it will end up in the long run being seeing as it was very liquid-y and therefore would run out faster. Not going to lie, I didn’t have very high expectations despite the good reviews I saw online. I mean, I was hopeful but not too psyched about it because I am very picky with my brush cleaners. I hate having to deal with cleaning products that take forever and a day to break down the foundation/cream residue on my brushes, and I hate having to deal with the sudsy residue most shampoos leave even more… you can spend a long time running the brushes under water, I swear!


Giiiiiiiiiiiirl, let me tell you, I was floored the first time I used the Daiso Brush Cleaner! It did a wonderful job at cleaning my powder brushes – just one round of cleansing and voila, the brushes were back to their original clean selves. The true test, however, was how the product would perform with the brushes I use for cream and liquid products. I first tried pouring the product direct on to the brush and while it worked fine, I felt that it was a tad wasteful. I ended up getting a small bowl to put the Daiso Make Up Brush Cleaner in, dipped my brushes into it and after a round of dip-swishy swishy-wash, my cream/liquid product brushes were surprisingly clean! It also didn’t leave any sudsy residue on my brushes – even if I rubbed the brushes on a towel to help dry them off, there weren’t any bubbles or suds – meaning the brush cleaner was fully washed away with water. Yasssss!

I have also been using the Daiso Brush Cleaner on my Beauty Blenders/Face Sponges and it works just as well. I no longer have to spend a lot of time cleaning the sponges – the Daiso Brush Cleaner gets rid of all the make up gunk – stains too – in just one go.


Now I understand and definitely support the hype for this product. If you are like me and you hate washing your brushes, definitely give this product a chance. At Php88.00, it is definitely a steal – the only down side is that it’s not always in stock. The next time I see this at my local Daiso, you can bet your bottom dollar that I will hoard these! πŸ˜‰

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. πŸ™‚
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
