Banila Co, the promise of a "Lit from Within"





Banila Co launches their top 10 products in Manila last November 23 at the Marco Polo Hotel, Ortigas. The event was hosted by Sam Oh and graced by Banila Co's  CEO Mr Chang Soo Kim, Chief Makeup Artist Mr. Kangpil Kim, and Managing Directors Cathryn and Jon Lim of All That Blush Trading Inc. 


We had the time to test their products, starting with the tinted love melting balm, to achieve a gradient lip dab the lip tint all over your lips, and blend outwards using your fingers and set off with Banila Co CC Cushion for that bitten look. This is the lipstick trend Korean girls are crazy for.

The second stop is at the CC Cushion booth, I also love how their CC Cushion feels like, it has that dewy no make up, make up look effect, light but enough to blur your blemishes. To apply, just  dab all over your face and layer if you want to.




Now, have you ever wonder why Korean has smooth and flawless skin? Getting that porcelain-like skin is quite a task with their 10-steps skin care routine. But truth be told that they never go to bed with their make-ups on. For their arsenal of a product  Banila Co Clean it Zero Cleansing Balm, (Banila Co's best seller) made it to their shelf as a part of their skin care which melts away impurities and gently cleanses off traces of make up.

We all went gaga over their BB creams, I guess the one thing that made Korean beauty stand out above the rest is their bestselling BB creams, that one multitasker treatment for your face that tends to cover your blemishes and has a  staying power, sunblock and whitening to cover up what you wanted for in a foundation.





I chanced upon Banila Co, when I stayed over a year at UAE. I bought their Let Me Bebe BB Cream and swore it made my pores invisible, and whitened up my face a bit, I dont know if its the UAE weather but definitely made it my make up routine for over a year of my stay. It became my  HG product.  It made my face pimple free for the rest of the year, I partnered it with a face powder to set the BB cream in.

Now, that Banila Co invades Manila, you dont need to ship their products here and the best thing is that you have the time to physically test it yourself at the counter.
