review: banish acne scars starter kit

Hello loves! A few weeks ago Banish Acne Scars reached out to me and sent me their starter kit to test out and review for you all. I’ve been trying the products out for a while and gathered call my thoughts for you guys!

Banish Acne Scars is natural brand based out of Pasadena, California and run by a lovely lady named Daisy. All of the products are packed with awesome for your skin ingredients that are meant to help heal not only acne scars but texture and  pigmentation issues from breakouts. I have never personally suffered from really bad acne but when I get a breakout I end up having really bad hyper pigmentation for weeks after the blemish has disappeared.

This year I have had more skin issues than ever before. Some of you know that I get botox for migraines and that has really messed up my skin and caused redness and lots of breakouts around my hairline. Every time Ive used the banish system the next morning my face looks amazing. The hyper pigmentation from former breakouts is always better. I was honestly so impressed at how well this helped my skin issues.

The first time I used it, the vitamin c burned a little when I applied it but I haven’t had an issue since. I only do the system before bed because I get really red after I use the banishers but by the morning my skin looks completely renewed. Since Ive used the system, my skin texture and pigmentation has improved immensely. I will definitely continue to use this whole system in my skincare routine!

The starter kit includes

  • Banish Oil ( Vitamin C Serum)
  • Vitamin C Beauty Elixir
  • Medium Banisher
  • Pen Banisher
  • Pumpkin Enzyme Masque
  • Activated Charcoal Clay Masque
  • Pore Smasher

I use the products about once a week or once every other week. My routine with the kit is

  • use one of the masks (my favorite is the pumpkin enzyme)
  • take the pore smasher out of the freezer and roll it over my whole face
  • sanitize both banishers with alcohol
  • roll the medium banisher lightly over my entire face
  • use the pen banisher over the more concentrated pigmentation issue areas
  • take 3 drops of the banish oil and smooth it over my face
  • spray the beauty elixir in my hands and smooth that over my face ( I do not spray it on my face because i don’t want to get it in my eye area)


I’m super pleased with all of the banish acne scar products and I would definitely recommend the kit to anyone with scarring, texture, or pigmentation concerns. It is so easy to use and the kit provides thorough easy instructions to make getting perfect skin a breeze. Let know if you’d like to see a blog post on my full skincare routine or any other blog ideas you all have for me!
