When I got this kit, my skin condition was normal, I did not have any issues except for my everyday popping zits on my oily-combination skin. Even then, I started using this new skincare regime. I use this mostly as my bedtime skin routine. And only the Banish oil and Beauty elixir in the morning routine too. I started seeing my skin getting better with every use. I noticed that in 2 weeks my skin texture was improving gradually. I could see the smoothness and brightness after every use of the masks and I would wake up every morning with a fresh rejuvenated skin that I see after I wash my face. The masks were so potent and gave amazing results. I literally enjoyed my new skin with this new routine in a month. I’ve had someone told me that this Banish skincare works as long as you keep using it and once stopped the skin gets back to normal condition. So after a thorough month of using it, I thought I’ll stop and see what happens. In the 2nd month 1st week, my skin was as usual and did not find any set back, even after switching to a new skincare. 2nd week, a teenie pimple just popped out saying a hi. 3rd week and my most horrible week, I did a biggest mistake trying to wax my jawline and little bit of cheeks and the peachfuzz and my lip area, which I very very rarely do. I kind of switched to a new brand of wax strips and started doing it. The process went good, got rid of all my facial hair with the most painful procedure and bammm, the next morning my skin went into absolute worse condition. I had bumps all over my cheek area and my chin (thankfully not my lips) and some of them being really painful. Oh god! what did I do? I wasn’t even ready to see my face in the mirror. For a day and two I stopped everything I use on my face and then I switched back to BANISH kit again, praying that it would really work. I followed the same weekly routine provided by them and I didn’t even mind using the Banish dermaroller on my bumps, it didn’t harm me. It was only after 2 weeks, I did see that my pimples and bumps getting vanished with an improvement in the skin too. In a month time, I got my skin back, but it did leave some blemishes and scars behind. IMG_20170909_105454-01-01-01.jpeg

BANISH OIL –

This is the signature product that was carefully formulated by Daisy herself. Each potent drop is infused with nature’s best ingredients. I use it after the Banisher to help fade the appearance of dark marks & acne scars faster or use it daily for brighter, smoother and firmer skin. It is made with natural ingredients to combat skin concerns! Apply 2-4 drops daily and pat into clean skin. Best used at night or patted on after a banisher session. Size : 15 ml. Shelf life : 6 months

I use this day and night, 4 drops in the morning and 6-7 drops in the night. It’s a clear serum like oil which gets absorbed into the skin within seconds leaving the skin well hydrated. I did not feel any dryness after wearing this oil. it gives my skin enough moisture too.

ARMED WITH : 

  • Vitamin C – a nutrient for your body that is vital to skin and overall health. Vitamin C is used by your skin to create elasticity and collagen. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, and antioxidants slow down the body’s aging process and protect your skin.
  • Ferulic Acid – another antioxidant that is super powerful and it’s found in cell walls of plants like apples, rice, and oranges. It helps stabilize the vitamin C too.
  • Vitamin E – an antioxidant and moisturizer.

PUMPKIN ENZYME MASQUE –

The Pumpkin Mask to gently exfoliate skin without the use of harsh scrubs to reveal beautifully smooth and more evenly toned skin. Spread a thin layer on face and let dry. Wash off when dried.  Usually takes about 10 minutes. It gives a mild tingling sensation within the first minute or two of applying the mask, which is normal and is a sign of indication that the skin is acting to the enzymes of the pumpkin. (If excessive stinging or irritation occurs, rinse off with cool water.) It is suggested to be used only 2-3 times a week or as often as needed. Size: 50ml

I absolutely love using this Pumpkin Enzyme masque, it instantly removes all the dead skin from the face and gives that fresh glow. It also smoothens the skin very well. The tingling sensation is quite bearable for my normal skin condition, but any sensitive skinned person might not be able to take it. This mask smells exactly like a mixture of pumpkins and coconut oil, although coconut oil isn’t any ingredient in it. But the scent is dtrong, which might bother some people. And most important rule, after the night I use this mask, is that I must wear a sunscreen when I step out into the sun.

ACTIVATED CHARCOAL CLAY MASK –

A facial in a jar for a fraction of the cost, the Activated Charcoal Clay Masque will surely be a staple in your skincare regimen. As the charcoal mask dries, feel it tighten on your face and you can feel it pulling out the impurities and excess oil from deep within your skin. You’ll never want to run out of this baby again! It comes in a powder form so you have the option to customize it depending on your skin type and need, plus you have full control on the consistency of the mask! A little goes a long way so this will be your comrade to slay blackheads and impurities for months to come!

Mix the activated charcoal clay masque with water or your favorite liquid until you make a paste. Add a layer onto your skin and let dry for 10-15mins, then wash off. Get rid of clogged or large pores by using this masque 1-2 times a week. Size : 25ml.

Although given that this charcoal mask is supposed to be used only once a week, I use it 2 times in a week. I mix the powder with water sometimes, rosewater sometimes and the Beauty elixir sometimes. This is another amazing mask. While drying, it literally tightens the skin and pulls out any gunk and toxins out of the pores and makes the skin appear much healthier.

VITAMIN C BEAUTY ELIXIR –

You’ll never leave home without this! The Vitamin C Elixir has a minty scent that’s perfect to freshen up or re-hydrate during hot weather or use it to moisturize your skin during cold, drying days. A few spritz is all you need to refresh and awaken parched skin without the sticky feel! It calms the redness, tones, refreshes and hydrates the skin and makes the skin appear bright. Plus, it’s an effective natural primer or makeup setting spray!

So, this elixir was my toner in this skincare routine, I use this right after any mask. 3-4 spritz all over the face is all I need to tone my face. It gives such a soothing sensation right after my masking session or a good cleansing.

WHAT SIZES TO GET :

  • Banisher Roller – Recommended for most people who want to revitalize, brighten, and retexture their skin surface. Can be used on Body or Face.  Use Once every 2 weeks. IMG_20170801_115531-01This is my absolute favorite tool. I’m gonna continue use this as long as I can. The needles are totally harmless and they give a mild prickly sensation. I use this 2 times week or even a 3 now, and this dermaroller gives that extra boost for the skin to take in the products. IMG_20170801_115642-01
  • Banisher Pen/Stamp – Smaller size to use around active pimples. IMG_20170801_115134-01.jpeg

Use the Banisher once every 2 weeks.  Replace after 3 to 4 uses to avoid bacteria building up on the Banisher.

Do not use the Banisher over active acne and do not exfoliate right after using the Banisher. Avoid sun exposure or wear sunscreen the next day.

THE PORE SMASHER –

The best way to fight large pores and redness, an issue we know all too well. Icing skin has many benefits, but come on, would you like to dunk your face in a bowl of ice water? The Pore Smasher is made for easy ice facials to help skin appear youthful and fresh by constricting pores. The best part is that you can see and feel the skin benefits instantly and it only takes a couple minutes. Just keep the pore smasher in freezer for at least half an hour to an hour and massage all over your face for 2-5 minutes. You can detach the top and stick it in the freezer to save room.

This is a daily routine thing, so I permanently placed the head in my freezer and I take it out for use morning and night and roll it on. From day 1 I saw results on my pores. I could see visible changes, my pores started to minimize day by day after every use.

WHAT DOES IT DO :

  • Make pores appear smaller
  • Reduce puffiness from eye area and face
  • Revitalize skin appearance
  • Cool and tighten skin
  • Can also be used to slightly numb the face before using the Banisher or after the Banisher.

So this was my experience from using  the Banish Acne Scars Starter kit. I have completed every single product, except for few more uses of the Banish oil and the Beauty elixir, to pen down my whole experience. Although I wouldn’t say that this is my acne story, but this would definitely be my normal-worse-better skin story. The whole concept of Banish is to clear/supress the acne condition and not to completely make it vanish. I had great experience trying out these products and yes my skin got better with them.

Oh! I’ve also received this Aloe Vera Oil from them, which I guess is a new release. And this oil is a blend of goodness of Soybean, Aloe and Vitamin E oils and is used for stretch marks.
