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.
