Banila Co Clean It Zero Original Cleansing Balm Review

Banila Co Clean It Zero Original Cleansing Balm Review

I love double cleansing in the evening because it really helps to thoroughly dissolve oil, makeup, and grime that builds up on your face throughout the day. I don’t wear makeup, but living in the city definitely adds a lot of pollution and grime on your skin. So double cleansing is still an essential part of my nightly routine.

A double cleanse involves using an oil-based cleanser first followed by a water-based cleanser. This is to ensure that oily impurities, like makeup and sebum, are dissolved and removed first. Most people use something like a cleansing oil or a cleansing balm as their first cleanse. I’ll be reviewing the latter, which is the Banila Co Clean It Zero Original Cleansing Balm. This a cult kbeauty product that has been raved about for years.

I’ve actually never used a cleansing balm before trying out this product. Whenever I double cleanse, I always used either an oil cleanser or micellar water. However, I’ve been taking a very harsh acne medication recently that’s been drying out and irritating my skin. I was running low on cleansing oil and micellar water felt too harsh because of the friction from swiping the cotton pads over my skin. I really needed something that was gentle yet effective at removing all the impurities on my face.

Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Toner Review

Now that it’s fall, the air is starting to get drier and colder. My skin gets dehydrated easily, and this weather has definitely been making it feel worse. My face starts to feel pretty tight and dry throughout the day as if it needs a gallon of water to keep it hydrated.

I heard some great things about Isntree and their Hyaluronic Acid Toner and thought it would be a good opportunity to put it to the test and try it out on my dehydrated skin.

Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Re.Pair Serum Review

I love Dr. Jart and this was the first product from their Tiger Grass line that I’ve tried. I’ve only used some of the Ceramidin products from Dr. Jart and had great results when my skin was feeling dry, so I was excited to try out their Tiger Grass line which is aimed towards sensitive and inflamed skin.
