Banish* contacted me, I took the time to research the brand first to see whether they would meet my skin needs and whether I believed in their brand mission. They certainly ticked all of my boxes and it was amazing to see the Instagram videos of people from all over the world using their products to improve their skin.
My routine begins with removing all of my make-up and then I reach for my spare foundation brush, a bowl of warm water and a clean flannel. The first product I used was the Pumpkin Enzyme Masque, it smells incredibly fresh and the formula is lovely and thick! I began applying the masque to my skin and I left it on for about 20 minutes, I wanted to make sure it really sunk into my pores and I was also able to set up the next step for the Banish routine. I gently removed the product with warm water and then cleaned the flannel, I then reached for the Activated Charcoal Clay Masque. This actually helps remove dirt and oil from your pores, reducing the size and keeping them clean, which is quite funny because the masque is very dark and not what you would expect for a face masque! I loved applying it before I got into bed and also in the morning the next day. I found the product was really fun to play around with too! I was really shocked at the amount of product, it really will last you months!
Overall, I am loving how intense and professional the Banish range is. I do suffer from oily skin and big pores so the products can also help for this skin type, not jut acne. If you are looking for a skin care range that you can feel working straight away, I can't praise Banish enough. I loved the feeling of using the charcoal masque and the toning sensation it created! I was really surprised at how well my skin reacted to the vitamin C Beauty Elixir, even though the elixir is oil based, it didn't react badly with my skin or increase the my natural oil. You can find the full product range, here. I will be posting a mini video tutorial on my Instagram so keep your eyes peeled! ♥
