Banila Co. Clean It Zero Primer Review

I was fortunate enough to attend Banila Co launch last year. I was excited for this korean makeup brand to finally hit Manila shores because I was smitten with their products when I was in Korea. They gave us their best sellers as a part of their PR kit. I was dismayed when it included this Clean It Zero. In my mind, I thought "ay sana makeup na lang!"  After reading the back label of this product, I began to get curious. I immediately opened it and discovered it was a balm and fresh strawberry yoghurt scent greeted me. I scooped out a small amount of the product and the rest is history.

This is, by far, one of the best makeup remover I have ever tried. This is currently my Holy Grail Makeup Remover. It costs 875 pesos per tub. 875 may seem too much for a makeup remover but this product is very economical to use. I had mine since December and I have not yet gone through 1/4 of the tub. 
This comes with a tiny plastic scraper for scooping out the product in its huge tub. This balm literally melts makeup and removes it like magic. It did not sting my eyes at all. It can 100% remove waterproof mascara, liner and even the hardcore liquid lipstick. 

How to use this wonder product? Scoop a small amount from the tub then gently massage the balm on your face. Focus on your eyes or other areas where attention is needed. Then rinse it off with water. That's it! It does not leave any oily or greasy feel after rinsing. 
Clean it Zero in action! Look how easily it melted my la splash liquid lipstick

1. This does not sting my eyes.
2. It did not irritate my skin.
3. The product has a light scent to it like strawberry.
4. It is very economical to use because a little goes a long way.
5. This cleanses my face thoroughly. It removes 100% of my makeup even the stubborn gel liner, waterproof mascara and liquid lipstick.
6. It does not leave any greasy feel after rinsing.
7. It is very convenient to use because I just need water to rinse it off. No need for tissue or facial towels to remove the makeup.
8. It did not dry out my face.
9. It feels so gentle on my skin. 

I attended their launch last year and I got to see and even try their products. Here are a few photos of the event launch and a snippet of a story about Banila Co. as a company. 

" From its humble beginnings in 2005, Banila Co. has grown rapidly in Korea and now has become the second best-performing Korean cosmetics brand in China. It now focuses its attention to South East Asia, headlined by concurrent launches in the Philippines and Taiwan. Subsequent launches in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand are earmarked for 2016. Banila Co opened its first store in Glorietta 4 last November 14. It will soon open its doors in Robinson's Place Manila and other prime malls in Metro Manila and key provinces."

I also have their best selling CC cream and their Prime Primer Finish Powder. Would you like me to review these products? Godbless!

  5. I'm one one of those happy girls when Banila Co landed Manila! Though I'm the last to know it :( So I ended up pre-ordering this baby last month (waiting is agony).
