[Review] Banila Co. - it fresh lip & eye remover

Hello everyone! :)

I am so excited to share with you this week as it is a total mind-blowing item! At this point of them, I'm sure you have heard of Banila Co. before. Yes, it is greatly popular for it's Clean It Zero cleanser product line. Besides that, the brand is also highly recognizable for their famous brand ambassadors - Taeyeon from SNSD and Song Jihyo.

And nope, we aren't gonna discuss about any of the abovementioned, but it is Banila Co.'s it fresh lip & eye remover.

Anyway, what's so special about this lip & eye remover?? By its packaging, you might think that way just like I did before. But uh uh, don't underestimate this product here.

The reason why I am here sharing this review with you is because someone recommended this beforehand - one of my favourite YouTuber, SSINNIM. She highly recommended this remover among all other makeup products on her One-Brand Makeup tutorial. And I was thinking "is it as good as what she said?" So then I decided to give it a try ...... and no kidding, I fall for it right on the spot.

Lemme show you how it works ^_^

First I got my full eye makeup with waterproof mascara on. (Thanks to my one-day makeup artist, Jenny Sim. She is very talented in doing these eye makeup. Surely I couldn't remake this galaxy gradient look by myself. Love it so much xoxo)

Give it a good shake before using the lip & eye remover, so that the oil and water components could mixed well together. The cap is tightly close whereby you have to push it down and turn to open. Very similar to some nail polish removers out there.

You hardly observe any scent from the product. After dabbing an adequate amount of the remover on a cotton pad, what I usually do is, to tear the cotton pad into two thin layers, where I can use it to remove my eye makeup in pairs (as below).

The product is super gentle on the skin which doesn't cause any irritation (for my case). After lightly pressing the cotton pads on my eyelids for about 5 seconds, gently swipe the cotton pads in an upward-and-downward motion to remove the eye makeup completely.

Do you sometimes find removing waterproof/volume mascara a hassle? Do you sometimes still find tiny mascara fibre attached on your eyelashes after using eye remover? o.O

What amazed me the most is, this Banila Co. product can remove your entire eye makeup at once! Yes, trust me, it is enough to use just one cotton pad to remove all your heavy eye makeup (see below). There is no eye makeup residue left on the second cotton pad.

I got my first lip & eye remover from The Face Shop; it was the Rice Water Bright Lip & Eye Remover. Unfortunately, I didn't like the product and it often irritates my eyes, so eventually I quickly finished up the product in order to move on from it. But it is a whole different story after I tried Banila Co.'s product here. Not only it is gentle and not oily on the skin, but also it does the removing job marvelously and effortlessly.

Without further expression, I am absolutely satisfied with this product. Since this product is currently not available in Malaysia (>,<), thanks to a friend in South Korea, I bought it for RM23.70 (KRW6,500). Sincerely I hope this product will be made available soon, and I am sure you will fell for this product like I did too :3
