Review: Banila Co. Clean It Zero (Sherbet Cleanser)
Posted On November 12, 2015
I believe most of us would skip using make-up remover especially when we are in hurry or we couldn’t stand with the ‘too-much-oil’ content in a make-up remover which makes it hard to cleanse using facial foam. There are tons of make-up remover available in the market but we rarely see one that can remove make-up without having our skin over-dry, or too oily. Moreover, there are only a few make-up remover which could give a squeaky clean face.
I’m sure most of us can be quite fussy when it comes to choosing a good make-up remover. It would be better if it’s fragrance-free, non-greasy, no-tears, and comes in a travel-friendly package. Anyway, I’d love to share with you my favourite make-up remover (so far). Yes. It’s another Korean brand which is quite skin-friendly as it does not leave my face with greasy or tight feeling. My SIL personally sent this all the way from Korea as it’s her favourite remover, and I’ve been using this for a year now.
What They Say
Banila Co. Clean It Zero is a “sherbet type cleansing balm” that promises to remove dirt, makeup, and oil without drying the skin or leaving behind a greasy residue. This award-winning cleanser goes on as a solid balm and transforms into a silky oil on the skin. Its sorbet-soft, lightweight formula effortlessly dissolves stubborn makeup and casts out impurities without stripping the skin of beneficial oils. Papaya extract works to naturally exfoliate the skin and acerola extact is rich in vitamin C which helps to brighten. For normal, oily, dry and combination skin types.

What I Say
This Banila Co. Clean It Zero comes in a sturdy plastic container with a metallic pink lid. It comes with a crescent-like plastic spatula to make it easier to scoop out the balm. The balm has nice soft consistency. It becomes more of liquid oil when rubbed between fingers, and it becomes milky emulsion when added with water. Clean It Zero has a very faint cherry blossom scent, and it dissolved after rinsing. It leaves my skin moisturised, and no greasy residue. I’ve never experienced any breakouts or irritation as a result of using this product. It leaves my skin feeling very clean but not dry. It also help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles (on my forehead), lighten the spots, and heal my acne. The price is quite expensive, anyway.
