A lot of us suffer from acne, open pores, spots/scars, hyper pigmentation and wrinkles at some point or the other in life and all these skin issues put us down at times (I have felt this a lot of times). In this post, I am going to give you all a solution to these problems. I try a lot of products to treat my blemishes and some of them work while some don’t but the search for the perfect one never ends. I recently got to try a few products from Banish which claim to help you get rid of acne and its scars.
Banish is one such brand whose aim is to help you get rid of skin issues like acne, scars, pigmentation, etc. Their products get to the root of problems as they don’t believe in covering them up temporarily. Also, all the products are natural and cruelty free.

BANISH ACNE SCARS KIT –
So as I told, I was sent a kit by the company to try which had the following products –
- VITAMIN C BEAUTY ELIXIR
- VITAMIN C BANISH OIL
- ACTIVATED CHARCOL CLAY MASQUE
- PUMPKIN ENZYM MASQUE
- MEDIUM BANISHER (WITH A CLEANING CONTAINER)
ABOUT THE PRODUCTS –
- VITAMIN C BEAUTY ELIXIR(30ML)
Vitamin C is known to have anti-oxidants which protect the skin from any damage making it look healthy and youthful. It also renews the skin and promotes elasticity.
The product is completely natural and Sulphate and Paraben free. It can be used to prevent breakouts, redness and to get rid of spots. It doesn’t dry out the skin rather gives it a dose of hydration.
HOW TO USE – Spray on clean face in morning and night to refresh, tone and moisturize the skin.
- VITAMIN C BANISH OIL (15 ml)
This again has all the goodness of Vitamin C which when used on a regular basis makes the skin look bright and firm. Being a serum cum oil, it also reduces age spots, wrinkles and improves the elasticity & texture of the skin, reduces redness and gives relief to dry skin.
HOW TO USE – Apply 2-4 drops daily on clean skin. Gives best results when used after banisher.
- ACTIVATED CHARCOAL CLAY MASQUE (25 ml)
Activated charcoal is known to be great for getting rid of dirt and gunk from the skin and as a result keeps the pores clean.
Activated charcoal powder has the ability to absorb impurities up to 100 to 200 times its weight, which helps it in deeply cleaning the skin.
This clay masque deeply cleanses the pores by absorbing all the toxins & impurities in it. It also reduces the pore size, blemishes and absorbs excess oil.
HOW TO USE– Make a paste of activated charcoal masque by adding some water or your favorite liquid to it. Apply a layer on to the face and let it dry, then wash off. Use it once or twice a week.
- Pumpkin Enzyme Mask (50ml)
Pumpkin is beneficial for people with acne-prone skin. This mask gently exfoliates the skin and removes the dead cells from the skin.
It has Vitamin A to dry out acne, promote exfoliation of skin and make the skin look healthy. It also reduces the appearance of oil from the face. It also has Vitamin C and Beta Cerotene to protect the skin from damage. It also has Alpha Hydroxy Acids to remove dead skin cells and bring back the lost health & glow of the skin.
HOW TO USE – Spread a thin layer on the face & let it dry and then wash it off. Use it 2-3 times a week or as needed. Some minor stinging is normal.
- Medium Banisher
This Banisher is for those who want to reduce the appearance of blemishes, scars & textured skin. It can be used on both face and body to revitalize and brighten it.
HOW TO USE – Always use Isopropyl Alcohol (rubbing alcohol) to clean/sterilize the Banisher. Use once every two weeks and do not use over active breakouts and it should be replaced after 3-4 uses.
HOW THE BANISH KIT WORKS-
MY EXPERIENCE SO FAR-
When I received this I got a little confused thinking about the order in which the products should be used but thanks to the Banish site and the Youtube Videos, the process became very simple. The quality of the products is great and the good thing is that they send the products packed individually and securely in the Banish kit pouch. Although the kit is a little pricey but the site has various options that you can choose from as per your needs.
The Products are all natural and organic which is great.
Coming to the Banisher (the Micro-needling tool), it is in demand these days but most of the sites sell it at such a high price, this one is comparatively cheaper. I was a little scared to use it on my face at first because of the needles but when I used it, it didn’t hurt at all. I also liked that they gave a plastic container along with it to sterilize it. It also has its own case.
The rest of the products – Beauty Elixir, oil, masques worked great for me. I have seen improvement in the appearance of my skin. The entire regime/kit has worked great for me in fading acne scars, blemishes and in reducing the pore size.
In case you want to see a demo of the products by me, click here. I created this video on Instagram to show how to use these products.
