If you’ve ever thought of looking into skincare; more specifically for acne prone skin, then Banish may have those solutions for you. But what even *is* Banish? Our beauty buzzer Stacey finds out below…
Banish is a skincare treatment that’s aimed at combating acne scarring of the Skin, all done in a few easy steps!
The kit provided comes with an activated charcoal Mask, pumpkin enzyme mask, banish oil, vitamin c beauty elixir and of course it also comes with the banisher itself; a derma roller consisting of small metal spikes on a roll!
So what’s the magic in this?
The Banisher is designed to create micro holes in the skin, so tiny that they will not produce any added scarring. But instead, this tricks your skin into producing new collagen and elastin which will rush to the damaged skin to rebuild itself and repair the scarring. Clever isn’t it!
Your banisher needs to be sterilised before and after treatment so you don’t transfer any harmful bacteria to your skin, after all we are trying to help it right not hinder it.
Ok so now that you know its end goal, here are the steps in which you use them.
- After you’ve popped your banisher in to sterilise, you need to cleanse your face! You can use any preferred cleanser just as long as your face is clean and free of any makeup. Once your face is prepped, you can make up your charcoal mask. Pop a small amount of the powder into a container and add your favourite liquid of choice to mix into a paste; I used water for mine for ease of application. Apply this evenly to your t-zone and leave the mask to completely dry down and simply wash off. This is done once weekly!
- After a few days of the Banish routine sans masks, then use the pumpkin enzyme mask to your face in the same way you would the charcoal one. No mixing is required for this mask, you can use it directly from the pot! The enzyme mask is designed to stimulate your skin and bring the blood to the surface in order for a better use of the banisher so expect this mask to make your face tingle slightly but that’s ok it means it’s working! Once you’ve let that sit on your face for about 5-10 minutes you can then wash that off.
- Ok now after any of these steps, it’s onto the slightly painful but fun part – the banisher. With the banisher, you need to roll it back and forth about 4-5 times in one area adding some slight pressure as you do, but not too much! Then lift and do another area. You can go in all directions, all over the face or just target those stubborn scarred areas if you prefer. Once you’re done rolling add a few drops of the Banish oil and press it into the skin, top it all off with a spray of the beauty elixir and you’re done!
My final thoughts?
While using this product I found it very easy to use and was happy to know that all the ingredients are in fact all natural, vegan and cruelty-free which is a major plus! I loved the Banish oil and the beauty elixir the most, they felt so moisturising and refreshing on the skin, the charcoal mask was quite delightful too! Unfortunately for me, I felt the enzyme mask was just a little too irritating on my skin but maybe that’s just me. Everyone’s skin is different! Mine in particular is sensitive but hey what are you going to do? Oh! And the pain rating on the banisher itself was around a 1 out of 10 so not painful at all! It’s highly recommended from me!
See ya next time dolls!
