Banila Co Clean It Zero is a nice like switch up from cleansing oil! This is a balm makeup remover that breaks down into this beautiful texture as it whisks away dirt, oil, and makeup.

Take a look!

Banila Co Clean It Zero Makeup Remover

I recently got a large size of Banila Co Clean It Zero in my Peach and Lily Seoulcialite Box (3.4 oz) but had already tried in the past. Some folks prefer balm makeup removers and personally I think Banila Co Clean It Zero is probably one of the better ones out there. I really love Lush Ultrabland and enjoy the Balm Balm’s Away but Banila Co Clean It Zero can run circles around these products.

This does contain mineral oil as the main ingredient. I’ve never had an issue with mineral oil but some folks prefer to not use it so I thought it best to mention. It does have a subtle fresh fragrance which I don’t think will disturb sensitive users overly much.

This starts out as a solid balm-y cleanser but once applied it breaks down and melts into a creamy cleansing oil texture. It’s amazing. You can give yourself a nice facial massage with this as you remove your makeup as it has a slick texture that glides onto skin easily. One of the reason’s I love it is because the balmy texture breaks down so easily. It really gives you the best of the balm makeup remover world and the cleansing oil one too as it has a dual formula.

This comes with a small spatula you can use to scoop a small amount up with. Apply it on dry skin and gently massage it around your face to remove makeup. After it’s completely broken down it’ll leave an oily-like feel on skin this is when you can rinse it off. As you rinse it emulsifies and goes milky like a cleansing oil and rinses clean away removing dirt, oil, and makeup easily without stripping skin, making it dry or tight after use, and rinsing clean away. Although it feels slick as you apply it does not add any excess oil or shine to skin as it rinses completely away, easily, with water.


I love this stuff!

It combines the formula of a balm with the consistency of a cleansing oil and easily removes all my makeup without drying out my skin.

    NEED!! What’s the price on it? My computer has decided to not open the website. -_-

  • Sara

    thanks for this! I use a combo of theBalm’s Balms Away for eyemakeup and the Kose cleansing oil for my face makeup, but this sounds like a good combo!

  • Maria

    Hello Isabella! ๐Ÿ™‚ One quick question ; can this product be used on your eyes?? To remove mascara, eye shadow, liner etc..?? ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hai Isabell..

    I usually do double cleansing if i using cleansing oil.
    Do we need to use facial foam after using this balm?
    Thank you

    • Isabella Muse

      I don’t use one after using a cleansing balm Jaeha. It pretty much removes everything for me. If you have oily skin, you might want to follow up with a cleansing foam. If not, you should be fine with this alone!

  • Lola

    How would you say this outperforms Lush Ultrabland? I’m curious to try Banila but am also wondering if ain’t broke don’t fix it! I’ve been pretty happy with Ultrabland.

    • Isabella Muse

      They are actually completely different formulas, Lola, so you can’t really compare them! Clean It Zero is rinsed off where as Ultrabland has to be removed with a wash cloth.

      • Lola

        Thanks for the response! I actually enjoy the slightly oily feeling ultrabland leaves (I only use it at bedtime) as it saves me from using so much nighttime moisturizer, so I think I’ll stick with it for now.

        • Isabella Muse

          likewise! I enjoy Ultrabland as well because I’m dry ๐Ÿ˜€

    Have you heard of Heimish? They’re a new Korean brand and another beauty blogger I follow said their cleansing balm is a great dupe for the Banila Clean It Zero. It’s around the same price, but apparently has better ingredients. I’d be interested in seeing some more reviews for it. I’m planning on ordering a tub next pay day.

    • Isabella Muse

      I have! Haven’t tried the cleansing balm but have tried some of the makeup! I’ll have to track a tub down, let me how it is if you try it first Lydia ๐Ÿ˜€
