LilyVanity’s Killer Cleansers For the Senses (Part I of III) by Charlotte Wang

Banila Co Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm

When I first started building up my skincare routine years ago, this was one of the few products I picked up at the store. Years later, after countless product trials, it’s still a staple on my shelf. It’s hard to find a product to replace this cleansing balm just because it’s such a unique formula; and so effective at what it does.

For the uninitiated, it is first and foremost an oil-based makeup remover. This does sound like it’s going to be an oily, pore-clogging mess but it’s really quite the opposite! It melts off make up like a dream (even seriously hard to remove stuff like waterproof mascara!) and washes off so easily it doesn’t leave a trace of oil behind. The result is baby soft and clean skin, ready for your next step in your skincare routine.

How to use:

-          Using the spatula that comes in the box, scoop out a coin-sized amount and rub it onto dry skin, concentrating on the eye and lip make up. The consistency feels somewhat like coconut oil – a solid balm with a low melting point – so it melts onto your skin!

-          Add a bit of warm water to emulsify it into a white, milky texture

-          Wash off with warm water

This is one of my all-time favourite skincare products and one I recommend to all my friends! I’m so glad that we’ve brought it on to Lilyvanity and I can’t wait for you guys to try it as well. Click this link here to ‘Shop Now’ at 20% off for this week only!


Etude House Konjac Sponge *BONUS CONTENT*

Sometimes skincare can feel a little too complicated – oil cleansers, foam cleansers, water based cleansers, scrubs, exfoliators… what’s what? Stripping it all down, it’s important to cleanse and exfoliate, but we can also double up our cleanser’s usage with a handy little tool like this konjac sponge!

What’s not to like about this? This gentle exfoliating sponge is affordable, made of a natural sponge and is also biodegradable! Simply wash your face with your favourite cleanser as per usual, dampen the sponge and rub in circular motions on the skin. Over time with consistent usage, you’re going to see brighter skin with a natural glow.

That said, do remember to let your sponge dry out after every use and to replace yours every 6-8 weeks as it will disintegrate! Get yours here today at only $6.90!
