For this being my first cleansing balm, this is probably the best makeup remover product I have ever used. I had purchased this in a Banila Co store in Taipei. After some deliberation on which Clean It Zero product to get, I had opted for the original, for all skin types and had paid $500 NTD (around £12) for the 100ml. You can also purchase the supersize 180ml one for $750 NTD (around £18). There are three other Clean It Zero products which are skin type-specific. Purity for sensitive skin, Radiance for dry skin and Resveratrol for oily skin. These are slightly more expensive at $650 NTD (around £16) each.
Another first for me is this being an oil-based cleanser. I’ve always stayed away from oil-based anything due to having oily skin and having made up bad scenarios in my head on what will happen to my skin, scaring myself. This cleanser showed me that I shouldn’t be afraid. It hasn’t disrupted my skin, no breakouts, no extra sebum and no irritation. You only need a pea-sized amount for your whole face – another, a little goes a long way type of product. I used too much on my first go.
This buttery, silky consistency melts onto the skin easily and melts away makeup like a dream. I only use it when I have a full face of makeup on and I remember when I had used this on Halloween, it was an absolute godsend. Face paint gone. After massaging it into the skin for a good few minutes, I would then remove it with a cloth. I use this as a part of a double cleanse routine and doesn’t dry out my skin. If I’m feeling lazy with my double cleanse, I’ll make sure the balm is rinsed off thoroughly otherwise it will leave a slight oil residue. Hello soft skin.
It has a sweet, floral scent that isn’t overpowering. I love how you get a spatula with this to control how much product to scoop out and is hygienic too. I need to get the supersize one when this runs out but that’s going to be a while. My sister has the Purity one and she absolutely loves it. Say goodbye to cotton pads and makeup wipes.
Being a Korean brand, it can be hard to get your hands on it. There’s a lot of places where you can get it online. Shop around for the best prices as they do vary. This was a great introduction to cleansing balms.
