Actual Product Pic:

Texture & Scent:

This "detergent" is basically liquid but it has a slight "gel" texture so it's not too runny (which i like!)! It has a funny scent to it which lingers on your brushes, so do check it out first before buying!


This comes in a squeezable plastic bottle with a flip top cap! I personally like the size of the dispensing hole because it's just nice to control the amount you wanna dispense! :D

Time Test:
It takes under 2 minutes to clean my face brush! :D

Price & Availability:
This product is priced at RM5 (US$1.35), which is ridiculously cheap. It should be available at most Daiso stores! :)

I use this to clean my makeup wedges! And although this states that it's for cleaning puffs and sponges, i find this superb for cleaning brushes too! :D Ok, when my brush dried, i noticed that this made the white bristles on my 187SE look "limp". It's probably too harsh for brushes!!

Here's how i did it:

This is my dirty brush:

Pour some detergent unto your hand:

Then swipe the dirty brush to and fro on your hand for awhile (about 30 seconds):

Run the brush under water for a few seconds:

And swipe it around again on your hand for awhile more. Rinse your brush, and say hello to a clean brush:

ps: remember to always lay your brushes flat whilst drying, and try not to get the ferrule wet whilst washing it to prevent shedding! :)

My $0.02:

I must say a HUGE thank you to the wonderful Plue for giving me a bottle of this to try out! :D Personally i won't even look at it if i were to come across it (i know, i know, im such a skeptic so sue me!)!! :D

I love how this one cleanses my sponges thoroughly of foundation! It rinses clean too!! The only thing i dislike about it is the scent!! Man, if they were to improve that, i'll be giving this product the full 5 stars! :D

Too bad this one seems a little too harsh for cleaning brushes!! Otherwise it'll make a wonderful (and a helluva cheaper) substitute for the MAC Brush Cleanser!

All in all, methinks that this is a great sponge cleanser with an amazing price tag!!


  1. see Daiso's name also sian. haha. penang tak ada.

  2. I so agree!! They should open one here already!! Come on now!! >.<

  3. try mixing the detergent with water and dip the brush into the mixture (but avoiding the ferrule part) instead of putting the detergent directly on the brush...less harsh on the brushes :D

  4. Thanks so much for the suggestion!! Ya dear reader cai also suggested the same thing!! I'll keep that in mind!! :D

  5. which area at KL can buy this?

  6. Daiso is available at The Curve and 1U. Check out this link for locations - Daiso Malaysia.

  7. now I have no reason not to get this :p Keep telling myself that I don't need it...

  8. Hehehe... do give it a try and see!! :D What are you using currently??

  9. got this weeks ago and I love it a lot... normally I don't use the concentrate directly on sponges or brushes... I found this detergent really cleanse my brushes especially on foundation brush and leave them soft... I don't use expensive brushes hence I don't find them harsh at all... definitely will repurchase... As I know there's another type of sponges detergent available in Daiso but Made in China which I will never try...
