There are a few different types of the Banilla Co Clean it Zero, but I'm reviewing the original. The original has a pink cap and comes in a tub of 100mL. Because of the packaging, it might not feel like it's sanitary, but it does comes with its own spatula to scoop out the product.

There is a floral fragrance, but it isn't overbearing or overpowering. It smells quite pleasant. The product is a white solid balm that melts into a softer consistency when you massage it into your skin and the makeup on your face starts to dissolve away. I love that I don't have to be too rough or scrub my skin too hard in order to take off my makeup. It pretty much removes all my makeup with ease. However, I notice that I do have to work a little harder and spend more time when removing my eye or waterproof makeup, but again I don't ever feel like I'm being extremely rough on my skin. However, a word of caution be careful when using this over your eyes, if a lot of the product gets in your eye, it could cause your vision to be blurry or get mildly irritated.
|Spatula is included|
When you begin to wash off the balm it transforms into a milky and watery consistency. It rinses right off without any problems and after towel drying, my skin feels fresh, clean, and smooth. This also doesn't dry my face out. I have read some complaints about there being a sticky residue when using this product by itself. However, this isn't meant to be used as a stand alone product. I never use this a stand alone product, and I ALWAYS follow this with a water based cleanser.

I really love using this product in my double cleanse system. I feel like it's gentle on the skin and removes most, if not all of my make up before my cleansing step. This will definitely be a hard product to beat, but I'm going to test out a few other cleansing balms/oils and compare how they hold up to the Banilla Co. But I definitely recommend this, if you haven't tried it you should!
*gentle on the skin
*very effective at removing makeup
*doesn't dry out skin
*can be unsanitary because of packaging
*can cause temporary blurred vision/irritation if a lot of product gets into eyes
