I've had issues with my skin for decades. Especially in my teens, when there wasn't as much makeup nor many cleansers available, I usually was too sensitive to wear anything.
Even now, at 45yo, I often run into products that are raved about, but still have my dry, sensitive skin break out or worse, cause painful eczema and/or allergic dermatitis.
It took a few tries to find a great double cleanse ritual as well, but once I had the Zero balms at home I knew I was close to the Holy Grail! The yellow, hydrating little jar was it! So I got the big tub.
With the yellow Zero my skin isn't just perfectly clean, + no fallout from lashes even with waterproof mascara or awful raised reddish hot skin from very pigmented makeup (bc I don't need to rub), but it is also soft and not tight after cleaning.
I always moisturise after cleaning off makeup because I've used water to milkify the balm, and water is the devil for eczema skin. But while I do need a bit of hydration I don't need much compared to other balms. Not more than just my regular night routine that I also use without makeup that day, or a good hydrating spray - also from Korean Skincare- when it's still day.
I wish there was no perfume at all in these balms (very low on the ingredients list, but still in there), because that could potentially cause issues in the long run - doesn't have to, but is often a problematic ingredient - though so far I've not reacted to anything.
Based on several uses I'm really happy: I can say this is the best cleansing balm and cleansing product I've tried in, well my whole life. I rarely need step 2 of the double cleanse and only use Zero.
But it's handy to know that in those cases, with just the Cleanit Zero balm, I have less on my face than some people. Due to chronic illness I'm often at home and sleep a lot, so when inside I don't use sunscreen.
And while I have a full face of makeup when using it, I almost never apply foundation.
Having said that, I still use plenty. This is the list: smoothing primer/(sometimes BB cream and always:) undereye concealer/ spot & pigmentation concealer/ bronzer/ cream contour/ cream blush/ liquid or powder highlighter/eyeshadow or glitter topper/eyeliner/ mascara/ lipliner/lipstick/setting spray.
Obviously sunscreen+ foundation needs a true double cleanse, but still is still a giant pile of makeup that needs the good stuff. If and when I do use sunscreen and foundation both the Zero balms do not let you down, and the double cleanse step 2 always comes away with very little. Usually one of those spots that are harder to reach.
But I wanted to be clear about my use & circumstances to give a clear review.
I recommend Clean it Zero, particularly the yellow tub, for everyone with dry, sensitive or just dry, dehydrated skin.
