Review: Banila Clean It Zero Purity

from top

In case you’ve not been keeping up to date on the latest in K-beauty: the Banila Clean-It Zero sherbet oil cleansers have been consistently touted as the latest Holy Grail item. Given that I was about to run out of my first oil cleanser (The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Light Oil), I gave in to curiosity and ordered the Banila Clean-It Zero Purity cleanser, which is specially formulated for sensitive skin.

Verdict: OMG THE BLOGGERS ARE NOT LYING THIS IS TOTALLY LEGIT. It comes as a balm, in solid form, and melts upon contact with your skin to turn into an oil cleanser. When I scooped a little using the provided spatula and put it on my face it melted instantly. Like buttah.

absolutely love this cleanser. It melted instantly upon contact, turned into this rich oil which felt wonderful on my skin, and once I added water lathered up and washed off easily. While I liked my Face Shop oil cleanser, I always felt that not all of the oil had been washed off when I was done. Not so with the Banila cleanser. Everything came off, and my skin was instantly softer and smoother. It was terrific.

In other words: I love this product so hard. Especially because it comes in a balm form meaning that I can travel with it without any issues (maintaining a Korean 10-step regime while traveling can be very onerous)! Three words: buy. it. now. 🙂
