I feel like whenever anyone talks about a cleansing balm this Banila Co Clean It Zero is the one you picture. I think its packaging is very photogenic and there was a while were it was the only cleanser I saw on Instagram.
I’d never tried this Clean It Zero Balm before now. For years I’d been using a similar type of product from The Body Shop, and when I eventually ran out of that, I picked up one of these to try.
I’m writing this review now that I’ve completely finished this balm and I can compare the two and safely say that the formula is indistinguishable. They’re roughly around the same price point however I prefer The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter as it’s easier for me to access and buy and I like their ethos and community work.
This Clean It Zero Balm was also strongly fragranced so if you’re not a fan of sweet smells then I would avoid this.
It would quickly and thoroughly remove my makeup by melting it away. Even my mascara would come off with this however I wasn’t too comfortable getting this close to my eyes so I ended up using an eye makeup remover most days.
I also feel like for the large packaging this didn’t last me a huge amount of time. In the end the bulky container was a bit of an unnecessary element, there was a lot of thick plastic that just took up space.
Overall this was a good performing cleanser in that it would melt away my makeup and I never had any irritation from the formula. However it was very similar to The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter and I prefer the smaller size and less scented version from The Body Shop.
