About the product

What Is It:

The original cult favorite cleansing balm — there’s one sold every 5 seconds — melts away even the most stubborn, waterproof makeup and pore-clogging impurities with a lightweight, no-drip texture. The Get It Beauty?Blind Test winner contains botanical extracts that penetrate deep into skin as you massage the sorbet-like balm into your skin for an anti-aging boost while you clean. Papaya extract naturally exfoliates and softens skin, leaving you with zero residue, zero dryness. (In fact, Banila Co. Clean it Zero?Cleansing Balm Original been tested to increase skin’s hydration levels by 14%.)
The Get It Beauty Blind Test winner contains a host of botanical extracts such as Bambusa Vulgaris Leaf Extract, Aspalathus Linearis Extract, Angelica Archangelica Root Extract, and Acerola Fruit Extract that penetrate deep into skin as you massage the sorbet-like balm into your skin. These extracts give you a leg up on your night-time routine, delivering an anti-aging boost while you clean!

Our insight:

This heavenly-textured cleansing balm will dissolve even the most stubborn eyeliner! Just remember to always use gentle pressure, especially around the eye area (excessive tugging can further cause wrinkles and fine lines!), and massage until the product melts away.

How to use:

Using the spatula, apply a small amount to face and massage gently in circular motions. Rinse well with lukewarm water, or wipe off with a tissue.

This is the only cleanser you will need. I’ve tried a ton of oil based cleansers and so many trend ones too. They always left my skin feeling dirty still. :(
This cleansing balm nails it in one swoop! Your skin feels hydrated and balanced just after using the balm once. You only need a small amount too! This is the only cleanser you will need if you have dry or all over the place seasonal skin like mine. Whoop! Whoop!


Sounds amazing!


Have heard great things about this product! Can't wait to try it!


I had never tried a cleansing balm before, but decided to give this product a try. I love it!! It is gentle, but does the job. It leaves no film behind and allows my follow-up cleanser to do its job (cleanse) and not be used as a makeup remover.


First, love that it comes with a slatula to keep it clean and sanirary. This product is pretty lightweight but breaks everything down. No fragrance or dyes. Once water is add it changes to a light cleanser. I like to work it in as a cleanser for a little bit before rinsing. It rinses clean and leaves the skin soft with no film.


This is so great! I think cleansing balms are the way to go now!


This is a really excellent cleansing balm! It works really well to break up any makeup or sunscreen youve worn throughout the day. This cleansing balm (really any cleansing balm or oil) is meant to act as a first cleanse to breakup your makeup and then you are meant to go in with a second gentle cleanser to get any makeup, dirt, excess sebum that has sunk deep within your pores. This ensures that all your makeup is off and your products that you put on after can actually penetrate and better serve your skin. This... Read more


cleansing balms are so much better for your skin


Love that it comes with a spatula!


Coming from a professional stand point this product knocks it out of the park from the ingredients to its results! I keep it in my makeup kit for clients, at home for personal use and one in my travel bag. I am a makeup artist as well as an esthetic instructor, you can imagine how many products I’ve tried over the years.... I was gifted this from a colleague and all I can say is WOW! I wear some serious water resistant mascara, it has no shot up against this gem of a product!


Best makeup remover! Clean and gentle.
