It’s been 4 years since i started my routine with double cleansing. It works wonder on my skin and feel more cleans than before. I started my first cleansing routine with oil cleanser before i manage to try this cleansing balm. I find that cleansing balm is really easy to deal with rather than the oil form of cleanser.
As we know, in Kbeauty routine they divide parthe cleansingt to 2 types which is :
First cleanser – This step involve involves using a cleansing oil, balm or micellar water to break down make-up, SPF and sebum on the surface of your skin
Second cleanser – In this step, it will clean much deeper into the pores to remove any impurities
So today’s product is about one of the best first cleanser that I’ve used.
What is it?
Banila Co Clean It Zero is a lightweight sorbet-like textured makeup removing cleansing balm that whisks away pore-clogging impurities. Suitable for sensitive skin. ZERO residue, spill, grease, dirt and irritation. Maintain moisture no tight feeling after cleansing.
This silky balm melts away dirt, residue and long wearing makeup, emulsifying with water into a milk-coloured solution that washes everything down the drain.

How To Use
Scoop up a small amount and apply onto dry face, massaging in circular motions until all impurities melts away. Once it has melted away, add a lil bit of water then let them emulsify. Continue massaging skin then wash off with warm water and pat skin dry.
Banila Co Clean It Zero comes in sturdy pink jar with white screw cap. It also comes with a pretty plastic lid and spatula. It has a seal when i got it in my hand.
It has a mild sweet and flowery scent, not overpowering. It contain fragrance in the middle of the list so if u can tolerate with it please don’t use this balm. Lucky my skin okay with fragrance. It does not irritated my skin.
For me, it has a unique texture because all the oil cleanser that I’ve used before comes in liquid form but this one comes in solid form-balm. You can imagine it as white sherbet-y consistency. It melts instantly once it hits skin temperature and turns into oil form. This product has a pH level of 6.1.
Before this i use Heimish All Clean Balm and I really like that product (will write my thought about this in my next article). Before I tried this product I got mixed feeling because some of my friends got bad review some of them like this so much. But I bought it instead and try it on my own.
So far after few months of using it, i love it. I realize actually they have two version which the old one got mineral oil in it but mine (new version) come without it. I found that I love it more than my Skinlabs Cleansing Sherbet. This product really can remove all my waterproof make up even my Maybelline Waterproof Mascara and Superstay Matte Ink! Impressive right. It melts away all impurities and does not leave me with a tight feeling after that. My skin feel so fresh and clean. I don’t feel like a film layer on my skin like Skinlabs Sherbet which is good.
What I can say is.. I love Banila Co Clean Ot Zero. For me this product really help me get away from my makeup, sunscreen sweat and dirt. I will stick to it until I finish it up.
5/5 I will definitely repurchase it no matter what.
