Cleansing Balm


July 14, 2016, by Stephanie Casidy


In my Pregnancy Acne Skincare Routine blog post, I stated that I have continued applying the Dermalogica Precleanse to remove my makeup, plus I adore it very much!

I recently ran out of this. However, I haven’t repurchased it because luckily a Banila Co. Clean It Zero cleansing balm arrived in the mail. Also, I haven’t finished using it since I got it, however, I love it more than that Dermalogica Precleanse?

This Banila Co. Clean It Zero (original) cleansing balm is an award-winning makeup remover that performs as a solid balm yet transforms into a silky oil if massaged upon your skin.

The texture is delicate. Also, the consistency is lighter than other cleansing balms I have tried. Also, I have tried Elemis (reviewed here), Eve Lom (reviewed here), Emma Hardie, REN, Clinique including Liz Earle cleansing balms. It is much simpler to massage and blend on your skin, it does not include any exfoliating grains like Eve Lom, so it’s excellent for people with delicate skin.

It also does not include any hard ingredients, which is a big plus for people with tender skin. It is also incredibly moisturizing plus doesn’t peel your skin very much.

The only point that sometimes bugs me about the product is that if I massage this product a little too harshly on the lashline, some product will get in my eyes plus blur my vision a little. However, this doesn’t sting my eyes at all. This will fade in around 2-3 minutes.

I only require a small, dime-sized quantity for my whole face, however on days if I have heavier makeup on I take approximately a quarter-sized amount, only to make it simpler for me to massage this balm on my eye area.

Following massaging it onto my dryish skin (with dry, washed hands, of course), I normally get a washcloth (review of my preferred washcloths arriving soon!) plus run it under a tap with lukewarm water. I remove excess water and remove this balm with my washcloth. I normally do this twice, plus it is sufficient to remove every single bit of makeup on my skin!

I have tried removing balm with only water, without a washcloth, and it acts well, although I prefer removing balms with cloths during more exfoliation. Also, I find that if I remove any balm about my eyes with only water, it is simpler for the product to go into my eyes including blur my vision.

Alike most cleansing balms, this arrives within a jar including a screw-on lid, also it also comes with one spatula.

I honestly prefer products which come inside a pump or tube because of hygiene reasons,

Concluding Verdict
So, would I repurchase this? Do I prefer this more than my holy grail Dermalogica Preclense?

So, I highly recommend this amazing cleansing balm.
