Most Helpful Positive Review Great for Beginners
I have never tried a cleansing balm like the Banila line. There are four different types of balms in the line, and currently are formulated to suit different skin concerns. I used each for 3 days.
The first one, Clean It Zero Original (pink bottle), is an unscented balm that applies easily. It removed my makeup and left my face feeling refreshed and "minty". No complaints and would use this one again!
The second one I tried, Clean It Zero Purifying (blue bottle), in my opinion is suited for more sensitive skin that is also acne prone. True to its' name, it left my face purified and refreshed. It wasn't harsh, but still felt like it deep cleaned my skin. It did not irritate me or cause any adverse reaction. No complains and would use this one again, too!
The Clean It Zero Nourishing (yellow bottle) in my opinion is suited best for dry skin that requires a little extra moisture, although it would probably work on any type! It felt very "light" compared to the others and had a more subtle affect. Again, no complaints on this one either! I would definitely try it again.
The Clean It Zero Revitalizing (green bottle) was different in that it has a soft smell that is not too overpowering (for me anyways). It is the only one out of the four that had a noticeable scent, and was the only one that felt a little "waxy" after the application. Not a showstopper, as it easily was removed, but it definitely felt like a different texture compared to the rest. I would still use it again, but only if I had no other makeup removed.
To conclude my review, I enjoyed trying each product in this line and figure out what works best for me. I would honestly like to incorporate these products into my routine after quarantine (not wearing as much makeup, haha) as a makeup remover. Each different formula removed my stubborn eyeshadows, mascaras, etc. without any irritation or spreading. These would also be great for a beginner who needs a good pre-cleanser or makeup remover!
Most Helpful Critical Review Decent Cleansing Balm but not the best
The packaging of these balms got me super excited with its multiple scents and pastel colors, and I got to try a sample of each type. But maybe my excitement gave me expectations that were to high because I wasn't in love with the product once I started trying it. The balm is very oily which is great for removing makeup but it can be difficult to wash it all off even with a double cleanse. The scents also aren't my favorite. There's a bit of an artificial scent to each one that doesn't make it very pleasant to use. I think there are much better cleansing balms out there but maybe a bit more expensive in price, so at the end of the day, if you're looking for something that will do the job at an affordable price, this might be the product for you! Definitely will remove your stubborn mascara and liner after a long day

I have a sensitive eye area and even if I rinse repeatedly to get the balm off my eyes they sting and water for hours after use. Just be wary of this.

I was hesitant to try this because I've always relied on makeup wipes. But I will never go back, this is the best makeup remover!! Removes all of my makeup, even waterproof mascara. Obsessed!
Clean It Zero in Nourishing balm
"Skin is In" from New Jersey
I bought the Clean It Zero in Nourishing balm I do the double cleanse method. I first stay off with this and found it to be every bit as wonderful as Farmacy balm but for less. I follow it up with Fresh Soy wash afterwards if I wore full face make up or I'll follow up with CeraVe Hydration cleanser if I only wore sunscreen. This common denominator when washing has my skin feeling softer and smoother. When gets my Tarte: Lights, Camera, Action mascara off. Very satisfied.
Jess from Connecticut
I purchased the original. It works really well! It even removed my waterproof mascara. I'm normally a cleansing oil person but really love this balm. A little goes a long way, and the packaging with the little spatula that sits inside is perfect. I was worried it would have a heavy scent, as I typically prefer unscented products, but it's basically non-existent.

I love love love this! The container is FULL you are definitely getting your moneys worth
Great cleansing bomb!
CGL from Oregon
This stuff worked very well for removing all my makeup without causing any irritations or breakouts! I have sensitive/oily skin and it worked very nice.
TPParker77 from Louisiana
I cycle daily and wear water resistant sunscreen EVERY. SINGLE. DAY!! So I needed something that's gentle but will take off all the sunscreen! This is PERFECT! I have sensitive skin and eyes and have no problems with this cleansing balm. I even use it on my kids to remove face paint, sun block! Will continue to buy!

The best oil cleanser that doesn't break the bank. I recommend this to everyone. If you're oily or struggling with clogged pores then try the Purifying or Clarifying versions.
Alyssa from IL
I love this product. This product takes off all my makeup and cleanses my face.
Raynah from NC
I double-cleanse with this product as my first step, and I love how well this removes my makeup, sunscreen, and oil/impurities. The texture is so soft. If there is a scent, it's very light and clean. I've tried the V*rsed and Farmacy cleansing balms, and I prefer this one. The other cleansing balms I've tried leave an oily residue even after thorough washing, but this one washes fully off without trouble.
best makeup remover
Grace from Atlanta
I only have to gently massage it into my eyes and it removes all the eyeliner and mascara. I've used other oil removers where I have to rub and there's still makeup leftover. This gets it all off without clouding up my eyes, or making my eyes sting; I don't even have to work it in as much. I will be rebuying again and again
This stuff is amazing
Consuelo from Columbia, SC
It melts away everything, even the stubborn eyeliner that used to end up on my pillowcase. This is the start of my evening routine. It's gentle. Just massage it gently all over and rinse, no need for scrubbing. No need for a second cleanse.
Great texture and scent

Absolutely love this product!! The texture and scent are so clean yet luxurious and this product WORKS!! Love how it melts away my make up and leaves my skin feeling so soft! Great product would definitely buy again!
Love the texture, hate the scent
rugbychick2019 from Pittsburgh
I love this company and the texture of this product but the scent isn't my favorite compared to their other options. The texture and effectiveness of the product is wonderful but the scent just isn't my favorite. Just wouldn't buy this option again. I have the purifying one as well and love it!
Great cleansing balm
rae9312 from Fayetteville, AR
This gets all my makeup off and emulsifies well so that it rinses right off. I'll be repurchasing
My fave cleansing balm
Mc Tiff✨ from Fort Worth Texas
Nighttime staple ! Step one in my double cleanse.
Melts the make up right off without having to scrub or rub eyes harshly to get it off and clean waterline. I am absolutely in love with this and recommend it to all my friends.
Best 1st cleanse
ByFelicia from Fort Wayne Indiana
I alternate between this product and the ordinary cleanser as my first cleanse to remove all my sunscreen and makeup. I love the texture of this product and how well it really does take off all my makeup. I don't repurchase many products, I'm very picky about my skin care, but this is a definite repurchase. I'm on my 2nd container and love it.
Sara from Palm Springs
First cleansing balm i've tried and I definitely love it. Literally no make up left behind. Even a full face of Halloween make up came off with ease.
One of my Holy Grail products.
Ana from Los Angeles, CA
I'm on my third jar of this stuff. It's that good. Minimally fragranced, non-irritating, and you don't need much to remove any makeup and/or sun protection. If you're looking for a no-frills cleansing balm that gets the job done but doesn't strip your skin, this is it!
BEST CLEANSING BALM
reggie from las vegas
i can't recommend this cleansing balm enough. i like it much better than the clinique one because that one broke me out, this one doesn't. i used this for oil pulling on my face where i use this and the dhc cleansing oil around my nose and my blackheads come right out. this works amazing on the eyes as well. it takes gel liner off so efficiently.
SS from NC
Like dissolves like, I love using this before I wash my face with my regular cleanser. The balm helps dissolve any makeup or sunscreen and feels great! Will definitely be buying this again.
ao from iowa
I had an intense reaction to this that cause a full face of acne. it's been 2 weeks and I'm still trying to get my skin to recovery. it's so disappointing.
Melts makeup all the way off!
Nina from Bay Area, California
This is my first time trying this balm - I really liked it and it's one of the best ones out there. All the others I've tried haven't removed my makeup all the way except this one! It doesn't remove eye makeup that well but that's a given because most cleansing balms don't .
