Are you tired of battling with oily skin, blemishes, acne scars and textured skin? Banish will give you the advantage, with no downtime! Every day is a spa day!

I am so excited about this post. It is my first grooming post. I know that you have never seen me using face products before because I have not. To be honest, I have never had any acne or scar issues before. However, who can get away with blackheads and oily skin? When Banish contacted me, to present the Banish Started Kit, I thought about it twice. I have checked videos and reviews about it and everyone was satisfied with it. Therefore, I decided to give it a try. Banish, helps your skin to heal/eliminate acne and scars.

BanishBanish uses the Microneedling procedure which has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation. The whole premise of Banish is, using your own natural body’s repair systems to heal your scars. When your skin is cut the fibers change. Wound army is called to repair as much as it cans. Therefore, Banish created the Banisher roller and Banisher Stamp who both use titanium bristles to create microchannels into the skin, where the Banish Oil ( a natural Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid oil) enters, the skin absorbs essential vitamins out of it and starts healing. At the same time the wound army is called again to build new fibers and put up new collagen and elastin fibers. In this way the skin starts healing and getting rid of any scars and acne that exist.

The story goes back when Daisy, the founder of Banish, was dealing with acne. She was testing product after product from her early childhood until her 20’s. Daisy was bullied for her acne, she was closed to her self and was very embarrassed. When she found out that people were talking about their acne problem and they were open to the world, she realized she needs to do the same. Therefore, after finding the right ingredients that worked for her, she started her own product line. She also adopted some good habits like eating right, cut out majority of meat and dairy products, get enough sleep, and exercise every day that helped her skin heal quicker.


Daisy feels that this struggle was given to her to share her story and help people that facing the same problems. The message she wants to pass is that there is nothing to be shamed of and there are ways to face these problems with the best, for your face, products and changing some of your everyday habits. She had come to realize that it’s not the way you look that matters; it’s the confidence to be who you are, without hiding from others. Along her journey, she realized that having great skin is about 70% genetic, 20% internal factors, and then, 10% skincare. She says: “When our skin is ‘breaking out’, it’s sending signal to your body that something is off. We’re not supposed to have acne, but because of the crap we eat and the chemicals we slab ourselves with; our skin yells for help.”

Banish Starter Kit

Banish was kind enough to send me their Banish Starter kit that consists of:

  • Banish Oil (also known as vitamin c serum)
  • Banisher stamp
  • Vitamin C Beauty Elixir
  • Pumpkin Enzyme Masque
  • Activated Charcoal Clay Masque
  • Cleaning Container
  • Storage BagBanish

Using Banish Starter Kit

I will start explaining the steps and I will give more details about everything as we go on (steps are numbered). Firstly you need to know the weekly routine of using Banish:


(At the weekly routine there is a Pore Smasher which is not included in the starter kit)

Before using Banish, (1) you need to make sure that face and hands are cleansed and dried. Warm water is used to open pores. You use a tissue, paper towel or clean towel to dry, in order to avoid rubbing germs in your face and hands that an already used towel might have.


You (2) start by mixing the Activated Charcoal Clay Masque and Vitamin C Beauty Elixir. The Activated Charcoal Clay Masque is used to remove blackheads and clogged pores (best for oily or acne prone skin types) and the Vitamin C Beauty Elixir to make sure that Vitamin C and collagen will reach deep into the pores. You might feel that the Activated Charcoal Clay Masque tighten on your face but it means it is pulling out the impurities and excess oil from deep within your skin. You can (3) use the mixing all over the face or at the T-Zone. The mixing can be used during the week for spot treatment. It dries immediately, so (4) when you finish applying it on your skin, you rinse it off with water. 


(5) You then use the Banisher stamp, which need to be soaked into rubbing alcohol 5 minutes before and after use, and you stamp it down onto your skin (don’t use it over your eyes). When you are done (6) soak it back into the rubbing alcohol, let it air dry and then place it back into its container. The Banisher stamp can be used three times, then it is best to replace it with a new one, since bacteria might buildup.



(7) You then rub couple of drops of the Banish Oil,  between your hands and pat it onto your skin. Banish Oil is important because it keeps your skin moisturized and delivers Vitamin C deep into your skin. The Banish Oil consists of L Absorbic Acid which is the best Vitamin C form that the cell’s walls absorb. The Banisher Oil can be used once a day even if your not using the Banisher, you will probably see an improvement on your skin with the daily use of the Oil. (8) It is best to store the Banish Oil in a cool dark place like fridge(9) Spray the Vitamin C Beauty Elixir on as toner to set the oil and give a little hydration to your skin.



During the week, (10) use the Pumpkin Enzyme Masque as a spot treatment. Apply a thin layer all over your face, let it dry and then rinse with water.  The Pumpkin Enzyme Masque  is used to gently exfoliate skin without harsh scrubbing to reveal beautifully smooth and more evenly toned skin. You will feel your face burning but when you rinse it off, you will feel your face more refreshed than ever. You will be feeling every pore of your face!! Loved this one!!! Once you use Banisher or the Pumpkin Enzyme Masque you need to stay away from the sun or use sunscreen to protect your sensitive skin that day. Moreover, avoid using make up that specific day.



This sums up the use of the Banish Starter Kit, hope everything is clear.

The best thing about Banish is that every product is cruelty free and vegan friendly. Moreover,  a portion of sales at Banish is being donated to charities that help animals, people’s lives, and homeless children, which makes me love this company even more. Most of the time, Banish products are created the same day they get shipped to you, since Daisy wants to have the over all control of the quality of her products when they reach you.
