If you are a newbie to K Beauty and eager to start with the skincare routine, chances are you will stumble upon Banila Co. Clean It Zero as the widely accepted choice when it comes to oil-based cleansers. It is an award-winning and highly recommended product. There are four variants by Banila Co. which are recommended according to the skin type.
- Clean It Zero Original – recommended for normal skin
- Clean It Zero Resveratrol – recommended for combination/oily skin
- Clean It Zero Radiance – recommended for dry/lackluster skin for a brightened and moisturized skin tone
- Clean It Zero Purity – recommended for sensitive skin for a soft skin
I used the Clean It Zero Original and you will be reading about it. Technically this should have been the first product to be reviewed but nonetheless, here I am telling you all the good and bad about this product!
So let’s beginnnn….

HOW TO USE?
Use the spatula to take a small amount and massage gently in circular motions. Rinse well with lukewarm water, or use a tissue to wipe off the balm with gentle strokes.
I was really excited to use this cleanser as this is an award-winning product and claimed to be a good one by many.
PACKAGING – The package is sealed by a QR code and a Secure Code. By scanning the QR code on M-Check App you can verify the authenticity of this product. The secure code is a little black strip has to be placed on the magnet which is inside the package. You can see the color change response when it is placed on the magnet. The color pattern changes by magnetic direction.
This cleanser comes with a spatula to scoop out the balm, hence helps to maintain the hygiene factor throughout the use.
The solid balm easily melts between your fingers forming a soft texture. It feels oily and spreads easily.
SMELL – I love the smell! It is pleasant and fruity which lasts only for a while. After the wash, the smell leaves you feeling fresh.
RESULT- I scooped out the cleanser and applied it on my dry skin and spread it. I had Etude House Precious Mineral Cover & Bright BB Cream, Lakme Eye Artist, Lotus Colorkick Kajal, and Colorbar lip color on my face. Initially, I thought it wouldn’t spread properly on the dry face but I was wrong. It spread out very well with absolutely no harsh feel.
I massaged it well and could see the makeup dissolving. I was skeptical about the eye makeup coming off properly as I had layered the kohl beneath the eyeliner which makes it pretty stubborn to remove. AGAIN, I was proved wrong. The winged eye makes up dissolved, as well. I continued to massage until I could see it all dissolved and wash my face with normal water.
It was all gone! My face had no trace or residue of any makeup. I was feeling fresh after the wash and the pleasant fragrance made me feel soo good! My skin felt soft and supple. No dry feeling at all.
DOES IT STAND ITS CLAIM?
Absolutely! No wonder it is a highly acclaimed product. It dissolves the makeup very well and does not strip your skin. Though I would use a cleansing water or a water- based cleanser post this to make sure my skin is completely clean from the makeup. In the morning, I use this alone to wash off any night cream or pack. I do not feel the need for a second cleanser.
None that I could find even after finishing one whole tub.
