I am absolutely appalled at the amount of plastic in this product!! I received it as a gift (along with a RT brush set, which was also excessively packaged in plastic). It comes in a plastic box, and is stuck to a plastic backing sheet inside the box. There is a seal over the top of the bottle (under the lid) and you have to pull on a plastic tab (which breaks by the way) to remove this seal so that you can start using the product. The product itself smells nice and did an okay job at cleaning my brushes, although I have used baby shampoo in the past to clean my makeup brushes and got a similar result. I will definitely not be buying this product myself until the amount of plastic packaging is drastically reduced. The brand may tell you that their packaging is recyclable, however where I live, most plastics aren’t accepted in the kerbside boxes by the recycling company, therefore I cannot recycle this packaging. Real Techniques, I love your brushes, but you desperately need to wake up to the negative impact that unnecessary plastic is having on this planet!
