Banish CEO’s Acne Story on How to Clear Hormonal Acne, Scarring & Hyperpigmentation (ft. Daisy Jing)

hey guys welcome back to Beauty Within it’s your host Felicia and today I have such a special host with me Daisy Jing So she is the CEO, girl boss of Banish and you also do a podcast you have your own YouTube channel basically started the brand from the ground up and why we have her on today’s because you know on this channel I love talking about acne and there’s no better person to invite on the show and then Daisy to share with you guys her experiences because you’ve also gone through some acne related issues, right? can you tell us a little bit about it? yeah thank you so much Felicia so I’ve had acne since the third grade and my skin has been my biggest physical insecurity every skin problem I’ve had it when you’re getting acne at such a young age you’re like I’m gonna do everything to get rid of it I think my family and I we spent almost $20,000 we went to so many different dermatologists we would drive four hours away to see other people it was weird cuz it was like the more stuff I put on the more pills I ingested the worse it got I fell into this depression because you know when you’re trying so hard and people are promising you the world and you’re seeing all these advertisements for clear skin and people are calling you pizza face oh my gosh you’re washing your face and your face starts bleeding because it just scabs everywhere I mean I was just so so depressed in 2009 in my darkest darkest days I turn on my webcam and I filmed a video called “growing up ugly” and I showed all the sides of my face and everything and I think the biggest thing is it’s not about being perfect and that’s why my TED talk is called “a tragedy called perfection” cuz just because you use these products does not mean your skin is gonna be perfect I always tell people it’s not about perfection it’s about being better than you were yesterday and realizing that even if you do have acne or scarring or problematic skin that doesn’t mean you’re any less so it’s so important that we learn that skin is so much more than just on the outside and that’s so perfect like we vibed so well so that’s what we’re going to be exploring today we’re gonna dig into Daisy’s mind a little bit and know a little more about what she went through what your experiences and your tips are because I think learning through experience is probably like one of the biggest things that you can gain from going onto your YouTube channel it’s called The Acne Channel and it’s where Daisy shares a lot of her experiences from 2009 up until this point and going through like the most tumultuous acne journey what was that like and how did you start to learn more about your skin what to do so after the reception of that growing up ugly video I was like people want me to talk more about my skin people want to know what’s working and what’s not and so I started documenting that journey and I would buy different skincare products and I’d be like “this works, this work” and then I was trying to figure out why do some products just make me break out why is it the more I put on my skin the worse it’s getting and then I started researching all the ingredients mm-hmm and I realized wow I couldn’t believe a lot of the ingredients in the skincare actually made it worse and they were causing my skin to break out oh my gosh like what? um you know a lot of silicone ingredients yep so it kind of makes the skin feel nice yeah soft and blow out yep but to have it in your serum and putting it on a night every night would just cause my acne to flare up, right? or things like mineral oil artificial colors or fragrances are added in skincare so it looks really sexy you know in the bottle or you know putting it on on the skin it feels good but over time it would just accumulate and make me break out and I was like oh my gosh this is what’s going on so I would start talking about that and then I started going to more natural route so I go to Whole Foods or health food stores I’d actually buy the raw ingredients kind of mix them up put them on my skin kind of steered away from the mainstream because I realized I am allergic to everything that’s our there like hypersensitive towards these ingredients yeah so can you share with us what your skin type is it’s very thick. it would be oily (with) very huge pores. really dear so much it’s like but when did that was it always like cystic acne you were fighting or was it kind of hormonal II induced in the beginning in the third grade it was like the teenage acne so that’s the t-zone where you get the tiny little bumps doesn’t tend to scar but then towards high school and college it was just full-blown cystic and I was all along like the user yep yep right before my period yeah I would get like one to two humongous cystic yeah things and that would just leave a huge scar on my face yeah so over the course of a few years you just get like 40 scars on your face and they take so long to heal from and they’re like deep and they hurt when you touch yeah they hurt and they bleed okay so it was deep cystic acne would you say it was hormonal definitely hormonal induced but I do think diet played okay yeah then you started researching into like published articles on skincare looking into ingredients and then what happened after you started like concocting your own kind of formulas yeah so I would used to put like layers of benzoyl peroxide you know on my face I would take antibiotics I mean everything right and then and what were you saying about the benzoyl peroxide I bleached it bleaches you know my towels my bed sheets like I’d loose like white stripes on my bed sheet my hair had like highlights I mean but you think about it going into your body yeah and so currently I’m six months pregnant and you’re not allowed to use benzoyl peroxide because it has a systemic effect maybe on the baby and you’re just like oh my god I was doing that like how without whole years like why was I doing that to myself so I went more of a natural route and it actually really helped but I was left with terrible scarring then I was like I want to find a solution if I’m scarring and I think the scarring is something people don’t necessarily like talk about it’s very traumatic when you have it yeah there’s acne scars which are actually physical indentations and then there’s acne marks which is like hyperpigmentation so after a lot of acne you will be left because it’s like inflammation yet on the skin yep so what were you facing and then how did you like go about kind of yeah correcting so I was faced with both so yeah you get the the red mark or the mark that is easier to treat and it’s you know what’s the make up barely see it the indentation part was like oh like because you can’t put makeup on and like you don’t know how to get rid of it so that was really really difficult and those are the ones that you kind of have to spend money on yeah that’s actually how I stumbled into banish and micro needling I saved up for several years to get my skin laser so I went to this plastic surgeon he said no lasers don’t work on asian skin because my skin has like a brown pigment underneath so if I get lasers I’m gonna get brown dots oh my gosh and make it was yeah its lasers are not good for people who have like ethnic skin so if you’re african-american or if you have darker pigment the colors are not gonna yeah so he said don’t do this but there is this thing called micro needling bla bla bla this was 2011 2012 so nobody knew what micro needling was yeah I was like no way am I gonna do but then I actually did more research the first micro needling dr. Lance Sutter field a South African plastic surgeon wrote a bunch of you know articles on this and I was like you know what if this surgeon says I should do it I’m gonna try it okay so I did it and then I researched and they found that vitamin C particularly oh sorbic acid the through like acid all that placed on top right after will help the like red marks instantly go away and it’ll help build the collagen underneath the skin for the first time in my life people were positively commenting on my skin but Knology my mom gave me was like your skin looks like it’s blooming like you know the clouds blue like yeah it had this glow to it so I was like dang there’s something there and then people just wanted to know what I was using here and that’s kind of the buff oh that was bird yep you took that and you basically created or whoever wanted to order it you would create it yourself at home on a small scale and then what happened I did want to be a dermatologist right well that’s why what did pre-med but I was like I’m not doing you know business what I don’t know any of this I I knew the ingredients anywhere to source them from I knew worked and didn’t work for my skid so yeah people just started emailing me wanting to try it so I’d send a bunch and one became five became ten people have a pain point which is their skin acne scarring nothing works for them and I solved that for myself and in turn wanted to help other people so that’s what are the ingredients that you found out that fundamentally really like changed something on your skin we have the banasur which is the micro needling device tool in terms of ingredients ellos or big acid for sure that’s the form of vitamin C that’s where that’s like the gold standard of pure form pure form and that means it will go into the skin and actually like get that collagen building because other forms of vitamin C I believe sodium phosphate absorbable palmitate those forms yes they go on the skin but they don’t might not necessarily go into the skin cells and like build that collagen yeah so we use that we use pure ellas orbic acid and we actually make it fresh every day our vitamin C serum is clear you leave it out for six months it becomes orange it oxidizes it oxidizes so it really shows to you that like we used a pure ingredients and that is a game-changer you ply it on right after use the banasur and all just like your face glows and the red marks are gone immediately and I think that’s like different reasons that we get inflammation and breakouts right so we were touching on a little bit about sugar but as well as that there’s like stress there’s hormones a lot of our banished customers they actually stayed going vegan has helped them because if you think about it Howard house meat and dairy made today unfortunately they’re pumping these animals with hormones you’re putting it in your body it’s affecting with your own natural cycles yep and that can cause everything to go out of whack and the confusing thing is it doesn’t affect everyone the same exact it’s just like unfortunately for super sensitive people we have to do your own research and test a lot more and be very hyper aware of what your body is trying to like send messages to you for right and what works for one person or again doesn’t work for another person and I think it’s so important to listen to your body like when I was breaking out my body was saying health daily you’re putting on way too much like stop yeah I wasn’t listening I just kept putting on more and I think our skin is amazing it’s a communication tool yes to us that’s something something isn’t going right okay so we have the Bennish products here and all together in the line there’s eight products but they’re all very natural they’re vegan friendly like pumpkin and la Vera I realize all the ingredients are so great for sensitive skin but they’re all designed for like acne problematic skin right whenever I look at what I want in a product I think what works for me and what doesn’t work for me and I take inspiration from everywhere so I don’t focus on what’s trendy or what’s sexy like Korean skincare you know there’s ten steps it’s just too sensitive for my skin I will break out if I have that many products but an example of like an inspiration was our newest product the fighter gel was inspired by my trip to Budapest where I went to the security baths and like bathe and I noticed my eczema went away my acne just wasn’t flaring out my skin was so clear and bright and I was like what is in the water in there I did more research and ingredient a sulfur so we have MSM which is a form of sulfur in our fighter gel and I wanted it to be an amazed in an aloe vera gel yes aloe vera is very hydrating it has antiseptic properties most of our products are based on an aloe vera gel and I also wanted it to be super minty so our cleanser or elixir is the cleanser because you know in the morning you just want to refresh wake up you know like a Ven or LaRouche per se that entire brand is also based on like thermal spring water right and I think the water part of it like all the ingredients in most of the ingredients in skincare the first one is water and I think it’s underrated how powerful the effect of it can be water is really important and you know in in Budapest the sulfur water the sodium ion pumps and those cells like well like kind of push out all the toxins even more which is why it’s so great at like chronic illnesses inflammation cancers all of that so it’s all these little nuances and how these structures are made up that can make a huge difference over time this one would you say you can slather over any sort of like topical inflammation that you see so it’s say for eczema like rosacea answer eyes this crisis and people also use as a spot treatment for acne one of my favorites is the pumpkin enzyme mask because I really love when natural ingredients is used in a very natural way utilizing what it already has pumpkins are high in all these different sorts of vitamins and the enzymes help to break down dead skin and also show like radiant skin so how did you come across pumpkin was it one of those things that like you’re in the kitchen one day and then you tried yourself yeah I think basically any pumpkin is really high in vitamins beta-carotene vitamin C it has naturally occuring glycolic acid – a glycolic acid has tiny tiny molecule so go into the pores like a vacuum all that dirty stuff out and I’ve naturally slough off the dead skin one of the good things about banish is that it’s also very affordable and I think like you were talking about vitamin C and you know the longevity of your products you said the shelf life is six months yet right because of the l-ascorbic acid and how it oxidizes and you need to like reformulate so everything’s in small batches we don’t need to use as many preservatives even something like the vitamin C elixir we don’t put any form of anti freeze and the product so if we ship it to like the North Pole in February sometimes our customers will say Oh like why is the bottle you know like a little leaking because the water expands when it’s frozen I mean our products are very pure very natural I think of it more as a restaurant then almost like a skincare company yeah can you tell us a little bit more about both of the vitamin C because vitamin C was one of the ingredients that you were talking about that really helped with hyperpigmentation and the collagen production and do you use that with this little contraption here okay so tell me how old this works yeah so this is our banasur 2.0 we launched it last year yeah it’s our patented product it took two and a half years before this you know they had the derma rollers where you just roll it on we had some complaints from our customers if you’re pressing too hard and like going like this you can actually be more scarring okay so with micro needling how does it work like does pissed through just that top like epidermis Leia so this one has titanium little bristles like we call bristles because they’re so tiny that our gold-plated and they just go into the skin and kind of stimulate that collagen production yeah so your skin interprets that as like a little cut and they’re like oh my god let’s bring in the collagen and wound fighting troops and they’ll start like building more collagen so you’re tricking yourself into thinking there’s an injury when there’s not and then over time you just get more collagen buildup mmm and that’s what makes it like plump and youthful pumping youthful clear and then when you pair it with our banish oil which has that ellas orbic acid that potent collagen you know accelerator it’ll just speed right up and when you have an acne scars you know the scar is like this right so you just want to push it up a little bit yep how would I use this at home we wanted to create a Stamper because a lot of people were just rolling too much and a lot of people also have active acne yes so when you get a PRP facial or micro needling done professionally they’re gonna just go through all over your face and then it’s gonna and then bacteria is gonna spread oh so I wanted to create something that was just if you let’s say you had a pimple it left a scar and you just want to make sure it doesn’t further scar you can just really target wherever the area was so that’s why we have this so that would really help with acne mock’s and hyperpigmentation and then how long does that take for the skin to really like heal to show that new vibrant skin like you will see a glow and there’s very little downtime so we just say don’t wear any makeup like right after don’t go out in the Sun or roll yeah and also we recommend using our products afterwards but if you’re not gonna use our products don’t use like something not natural because it might it has like silicones for example it might make you break out after a day you should be good to go so it’s a little bit different than the professional ones in which it’s a lot of trauma to the skin and for five days your scabbing and peeling it every day they like put plasma back in because in your blood yeah they put it back on I mean there’s different ways to do that you cannot do that and also what we have here is because I travel a ton and I know our customers are always on the go this acts as a cleaning container so you just fill it up to the fill line screw it in it cleans you can bring it with you okay so and you clean it with alcohol yep okay this kit comes with that in the holy oil and the oil okay so after that you can just use the oil yep if you’re too sensitive to the oil you can use our vitamin C cream which also has vitamin C in there and then you can spray with the elixir or you can just honestly like I love all these ingredients so it’s the glycerin and then there’s the l-ascorbic acid the aller witch hazel for alloc acid vitamin A vers hip so one of the things I didn’t want to use propylene glycol in the vitamin C serum yeah that’s most serums have propylene glycol what would you say is the purpose it prevents it from freezing it prevents more solvency in the products so we use vegetable glycerin a more natural gentler form it is a little sticky you know but I was like okay it’s fine if it’s sticky like I’d rather have it feel kind of weird but actually work then feel great and yeah cause you to break out yeah okay and would you say this is safe for all skin types yes so you can see it’s it’s clear hands are lightweight yeah I mean if you if you put it on it can get sticky you just put it on a lot yeah I would say this is our cult favor our most repurchase product we all know here that I love my clean loss so you guys have this one here it’s the activated chuckle how does this one work so activated charcoal is like ingredients that really can like acts as a magnet to attract bacteria oil dirt so go it into your pores and get out all that gunk and then you wash it off and it kind of clears it up so we’re basically trying to clear out the skin instead of like drying it all the time what do you see is the most frequent kind of questions or concerns that people come to your website I think people want a quick fix and people want just bam bam bam they want to see results right away and so I always say this will help prevent all that stuff from happening but if you’re getting acne we need to solve the root cause we got to go into like your health your well-being you know your gut whatever if you have some kind of chronic illness if you’re not treating the cause of it but just masking the symptoms by painkillers or whatever you use it’s gonna come back so I think the symptom and figuring out what causes it is so so important can you share a little bit about like the misunderstanding that people with oily skin can’t use oils that it will like clog their pores even more it’s not necessarily the oil that might be clogging it might be the other ingredients things that you might be allergic to so definitely you do not need to be scared of oils if you write like for me when I was trying to use all those harsh ingredients my skin would triple the amount of oil like trying to compensate it right it’s like when you wash your hair too much it’s just gonna be more oily yes yeah that’s my life no because if you have oily skin it’s basically oily scalp and oily body basically what’s your current skincare routine I’ve always been minimal well starting this and now that I’m pregnant banished products are pregnancy so I was like oh that’s very convenient yes but I’ll wash my face with the all clear mint cleanser and then I’ll just spray the elixir I spray the vitamin C beauty elixir or I use the Evian water you just spray them throughout the day to keep my skin moisturize I don’t like putting too many creams or gels on my face if I don’t need to have a humidifier on at all times at night it’s really minimal I will use the banasur once every other week and then I will also use the pumpkin enzyme mask I’ll put that on and the activated charcoal clay mask on before that time of month when I’m gonna break out and then I will like kind of rub it in the shower and like slop it all off that I was really help I definitely think less is more and I think naturally our skin should be at its best without putting stuff on it through your journey what’s your approach towards like self-care and confidence so if you’re suffering of any kind of confidence issue you don’t feel like you’re pretty enough or your skin is not what you want it to be I always say focus on helping other people for me that was my youtube channel but then over time when you help other people you’re like oh my gosh I’m so much more than my skin I’m so much more than the way I look I’m so much hungry it’s empowering you have so many other talents that you know all the superficial stuff because when you can work on something than just yourself like everything kind of falls into place I feel like we get very insecure and not confident when we’re focused on our own ego well in even me as a CEO sometimes you know my ego I’m just like who I want to you know be more successful and have all this and all these awards but every time I fall into that I’m very miserable and unhappy so I always go back into how can we better serve our customers how can we make our products better how can we do all that and just everything falls into place and then in terms of self care I have found that whenever you don’t feel authentic that’s when you feel drained and that’s when you need that self care right and I’m just by myself and away from what people are telling me what to do or all this propaganda or all this media out there you can really figure out like Oh what is it and that’s why people meditate you know go on silent retreats I think it’s important to just clutter all the noise later I’ll go back yeah like that whole minimalist movement like digital minimalism like sometimes you just gotta figure out like where do I stand and what is important to me I always thought self-care and like the whole wellness boom was always such an interesting phenomenon because it’s like they’re trying to sell you like different products right like a pillowcase or diffuser and although that’s not saying those things don’t work how they work is not that you’re gonna buy it back and it’s gonna change your life but those things help to facilitate like a larger problem maybe it’s a first step in something but the root cause as you were saying is actually that’s what you need to focus yeah this is probably the best time to us what is beauty within to you beauty within it means that you’re fully confident and authentic to yourself and your truth your feel like you have the freedom to express you and who you are and you’re not trying to fit any mold of what Beauty says or what society says that you should be so I think it’s really being your most authentic self I love it so much well thank you so much for sharing kind of like your story and here and can you tell us about where we can find you your podcast you can find banish calm and that’s also a podcast is hosted you can find us on instagram at banish acne scars and for before and afters we have a gallery at banished its and they’re insane

I absolutely love your top🥰🥰🥰Thank you for hosting this series. You are appreciated🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽😘

    I want to share my routine for anyone here struggling. This is what finally cleared my mod-severe acne, now I am just working on the scarring and have recently been researching vitamin c and considering the microneedling, so this video was right on time.
    This is the routine that cleared up my skin…

    At night I oil cleanse with straight hempseed oil and then take a very warm microfiber cloth and hold it over my face for 30 seconds and then gently wipe the oil off. Then wash with a gentle cleanser (I alternate between Cetaphil Gentle Foaming Cleanser and a couple of the Mychelle cleansers), then apply toner by patting into the face with hands without rubbing with cotton unless you just feel like you have a lot of residue (I prefer rose water toner), then serum – niacinamide in the am (I use Cos de Baha Niacinamide 10) and AHAs or retinol in the pm (I use Luminosity Mandelic Maven Serum and Mychelle Retinal Serum) alternated between every day during the week. To moisturize, I use about a quarter size amount of Lily of the Desert pure aloe vera gel ( yellow container) mixed with three to four drops of watermelon seed oil (can use any non-comedogenic oil) and one drop of geranium essential oil (helps with hormone imbalance and to regulate oil production)…I literally mix it in the palm of my hand and then apply. On Saturday I do an enzyme mask followed by a clay mask for about 10 minutes each. On Sunday I allow my skin to rest. Every other week, I see an esthetician for a professional grade enzyme mask and any needed extractions. I do not do professional grade AHA peels because I have found that the downtime where I can't apply actives to my face to keep my pores clear basically makes me break out again.

    With acne prone skin, we have a higher skin cell turnover, so we have to work harder to keep our pores clear. This is paired with clean eating and probiotics (I try to eat a serving of fermented food that says it has probiotics in it on the package daily… For me this is typically kimchi or kraut). I also take an omega-3 supplement (1500mg daily is the minimum ideal for acne) and pantothenic acid (2000 mg daily).
    Also, watch your carbs. High amounts of net carbs (total carbs minus fiber) spike your sugar, which spikes insulin, which spikes testosterone and can cause hormonal breakouts. I use an app to track mine and try to stay at around 50 to 60 g of carbs a day.

    I did eliminate dairy as well, and recently I will eat dairy here and there, and I literally just get tiny, pinhead sized whiteheads here and there.

    So for me, I think the main thing has been controlling the excess skin cell turnover in combination with a very clean diet. Eat lots of fruits and veggies that are high in vitamins such as vitamin A and antioxidants.

    THIS is what cleared my moderate to severe acne that I would get both hormonally and in my cheeks.
    The only other time my skin was this clear was right after using accutane… Twice… And the acne came back both times after that.

    What an awesome person

  • valerie5554 says:

    Very cool, but banish is out of my price range…

  • ratedrandom says:

    i’ve seen many other videos on microneedling that don’t recommend using vit c right after doing it, contradicting Daisy – thoughts?

  • Sidra Feroze says:

    Beautiful episode 👍

  • inesita365 says:

    As a teenager and until my 22's my skin was perfect. Smooth skin, no pimples. I'm 23 years old now and I think it was because of stress, but I had this huge breakout all over my cheeks. My skin is still smooth and I have no texture, but now that the pimples are gone the marks stayed. I have this kind o purple/red marks all over my cheek and it is so difficult for me to eliminate them, they look like pimples 😪

  • Anthony Yan says:

    disappointed in this, the brand lacks transparency, in the end, people with very severe acne problems need to go to a dermatologist where they can be prescribed antibiotics/strong topicals/accutane. Severe acne is a medical condition that slathering fragranced products on your face cannot fix

  • Kevin A. says:

    PLEASEEEE research a little more, I promise i’m not typing just to type.
    After micro-needling / stamping, don’t use a high concentration of vitamin C immediately after. Wait about 3-4 hours realistically. Instead opt for a hyaluronic acid serum + light moisturizer right after your session. The thing with vitamin-c is immediate exposure with a puncture like that can actually cause the product to crystallize underneath the skin, leading to an unnatural rocky appearance. It won’t be immediate but seeing as micro-needling / stamping is a LONG-TERM process, you really want to be careful of what’s being applied immediately after.

    Disclaimer: I am not a dermatologist but am currently in school for skin therapy certification & work with cosmetic formulators on a daily.

  • Miglena Petrova says:

    How exactly is 50$ for a 15ml product affordable? Thing is- every vit C serum out there will help you… and every derma roller will do the same job… It's insanely expensive for something you can buy on Amazon for 25£ altogether…
    (And no- natural is not always better…)

  • Brenda C says:

    This is exactly what I need ! Thank you 🙏🏼

  • Eddy says:

    Silicones don’t blog pores.

  • Daniel Barranco says:

    I didn't like this video, felt more like an ad. Plus the guest made a lot of dubious claims. Didn't like, won't recommend 👎🏼

  • Miss Molly O says:

    I also suffer from brutal acne. I'll be forty years old in 2 months and my acne has been with me since I was eleven. I have tried every treatment and product on the market and spent tens of thousands of dollars trying to clear my skin. Nothing was effective, nothing worked. Then i found micro needling (and tretinoin ) and I can't even put into words how much my skin has healed . I have several different types of derma rollers but one one has been the game changer for me. The Dr. Pen Number 1. It can go from a depth of zero to 3mm, plus it has four speed settings. My Dr. pen and the assortment of different needle heads cost me less than $100. I highly recommend some sort of micro-needling for anyone who suffers from acne and/or acne scars, hyperpigmentation, pitted acne scars, skin texture. I had all of the above and this is the first time in entire life that I feel confident about my skin. I couldn't even wear foundation because it only made my skin look and feel worse. You can not cover texture. If anyone is thinking about trying micro-needling I suggest doing the research and talking to a specialist to see which device is right for you. I still get blemishes and some hormonal acne but it's nothing even close to what I suffered with for all those years. My only regret is that I didn't know about micro-needling earlier in my life. Acne in all its forms is one of those things that you have no idea how devastating it can been your life until you have suffered with it.

    I just finished my cycle & the hormonal breakouts were horrible last week 😭 thank you for making this video! 😄

  • kpop. potato :3 says:

    Omg im from Budapest 😍

  • anklenell says:

    can you guys make a video abt popular skincare ingredients that are also allergens? I’m v allergic to avocado and watermelon, but those are some of the most commercially helpful things for my skin concerns

  • Salma Roble says:

    Luv youre outfit lol.❤❤

  • Eli says:

    I'm a guy and i appreciate you guys for giving me good tips/product recommendations for acne and other problems.

  • Monisha M says:

    I’ve been breaking out extremely and I stopped using products on my face..face wash serums etc etc and I’m sooo happy to say that my face is starting to get clear. I would say everyone’s skin is different so do what suits you the best.

  • girl groups always win says:

    wow i’m never using benzoyl peroxide again 😭

  • Nikkie says:

    I would caution people to be careful with the "natural" route because it doesnt always mean better, i made an avocado mask and instantly felt burning on my skin while trying to rinse it off i got some in my eyes and they went bloodshot like the reddest iv ever seen them my vision also went blurry had to take some benadryl it was scary

  • shey sam says:

    When she said the word "super minty" I'm out…

  • Tracy Song says:

    Love this vid!! is the stamper okay to use on the nose?? My cheeks don't have much scarring, it's mostly on my nose.

  • Calida says:

    Wow, I've never met someone who I could relate to so much on the acne journey! At my turning point, I turned to natural ingredients too, using The Oil Cleansing Method which literally changed my skin forever in the best way. After several years of that, my ance cleared up for the most part and I could use more regular skin products, like Korean skin care (opting toward more natural and light things). I definitely want to try this, I was already wanting to try micro needling, so this is very exciting! ♡

  • originalmings1991 says:

    Imagine that you’ve suffered from acne since age 15 to then finally get rid of it with roaccutane at age 26 to then start suffering from hormonal acne at age 27🙄 Well I’m 28 now but not giving up

  • Bi bip says:

    I understand youtube channels at this level need more backing/ ads, but i dint think this is the way to go. Not gonna lie, I was really disappointed. Please filter oit the brands you choose to collab with, or at least pls be honest. This is more like a really long advertisement.

  • Alezandra Davila says:

    Besides Aerolase it’s safe the 650 microsecond yah is safe

  • Alexandra Balogh says:

    Cheers from Budapest, Hungary :DD

  • SuJu_Mimi says:

    eczema sure, but idk about CANCER, lmfao

  • Carey Beal says:

    When y’all were talking about root causes, it reminds me of something my aunt told me when I was going through a rough time. “All the products you use are a band aid. It’s like me with my year round Christmas tree. Yes, those band aids are important, but you need to address the actual problem.”

  • Brittany B says:

    How often do you use the microneedling tool?

  • James Cohan says:

    propylene glycol is also used as a delivery mechanism to ensure active ingredients in serums fully penetrate through the skin. Therefore the banish vitamin c probably doesn’t go as deeply into the skin as others.

  • cathy xo says:

    i hate my hormonal acne 😭😭😭

  • mmm kskks says:

    Can we get full comments on the banish tool? I'm here Cus I trust the transparency of the channel so I hope we can get your personal reviews of the product as well.

  • H B says:

    Any effective treatments for indented or pitted scars?

  • tina n says:

    this came at SUCH a perfect time, my skin is for the most part clear but i have so much scarring from acne all over my cheeks🥺 THANK U

  • Janie Tyrell says:

    I feel like a lot of the buzzwords and philosophies in this video go against y’all’s ethos. “Natural” does not mean better for the skin. Benzoyl Peroxide is such a wonderful and well-studied ingredient that helps so many suffering with acne. And a minty smelling product leads one to believe there might be mint essential oil in the formula of an acne treatment product? It’s too big of a risk for those who already have reactive skin. I can’t understand recommending that.

  • Crissy Knoxbest says:

    I love her positive message 😭😭 those are things I tell myself every day

  • Leo Wang says:

    I’m sorry but her products are so expensive with the cost of her products we can just visit a dermatologist

  • E N says:

    Felica looks really pretty in this video!

  • AF Squires says:

    For the propylene glycol in the vitamin C serum is it okay for combo skin type?

  • Naticorn says:

    Can You guys review juice beauty ? It's supposed to be a natural skin care line.

  • Jana Lexine says:

    Her statement “Don’t use anything not natural” kind of bothers me…This channel emphasizes on the fact that chemicals aren’t always bad and natural/organic doesn’t always mean good, so her statement seems a little ill-informed. This video just feels strange because she’s promoting claims and views that have already been debunked in your previous videos.

  • Jessica Meas says:

    can you guys do a review on the app think dirty? it’s a skincare app that looks at ur products ingredients and tells you what’s its doing to your skin

  • Roasted Baby Chicken says:

    I’ve been through depression because of my acne, but now I’m just gonna cherish my acne… because I GAVE UP

  • Brandon Marshall says:

    So glad you got to interview Daisy! I'm a long time Banish supporter and Banish has completely transformed my skin. Daisy's story inspired me so much and I remember 5 years ago, feeling so down and sad because I didn't know a lot about acne and anyone else who was going through the same thing as me. I found Daisy and she had just started Banish and I am so grateful I found her story & Banish.

  • Tingting V says:

    Yyyyyeeeeessssss! Acne skin products that are effective and safe during pregnancy! 🤰🏻 I had the worst skin of my life (no exaggeration) while pregnant and felt miserable. Thank you for sharing these products. I will have to get them when we have another baby. 😄😄😄

  • Kakes_ Kloset says:

    Absolutely love your channel. All the way from South Africa ❤️

  • Kakes_ Kloset says:

    Can we get Banish products in South Africa?

  • Raynensun21 says:

    this came out at the perfect time. I'm having a really horrible breakout before my period.

  • Christine Galang says:

    This skin care line is just too expensive. No thanks.

  • Ricardo Berumen says:

    I haven’t purchased any of the Banish serums but I’m currently using the Banisher 2.0, and I can guarantee it helps A LOT with scars and acne. It takes time for deeper scars (like chickenpox scars) but it helps after 4-5 sessions with acne.
    I just use it, and then follow with the skincare I already use. I agree that the masks and serums from them are expensive and you can get better stuff at a lower price with Korean brands or The Ordinary/Inkey List

    Another thing to mention that is important here is the company’s philosophy, that’s what got me into buying it. They work in making everyone feel beautiful just as they are. I think that’s something forgotten in most skincare companies and their goal is just sales and perfection.

  • Elizabeth Forbes says:

    I usually quite enjoy this channel, but the message this woman is spreading feels a lot like "don't trust medical professionals and buy my product instead". Not gonna lie, I've had this same mentality for over 10 years, and it's the same mentality that leads to people becoming anti-vax and believing essential oils cure cancer. Recently, I built up the courage to go a dermatologist, and I'm finally getting rid of my adult acne. I'm sure Ms. Jing is a very intelligent business woman, but y'all, PLEASE trust your doctors.

  • Stephanie TM says:

    Such an incredible person! So glad she was brought onto 'Beauty Within.'

    I feel I'd likely be following into the journey, and using the activated charcoal clay mask + Vitamin C product. ♡

  • Elizabeth Forbes says:

    Additionally, this felt like an ad, but I don't see anything in the title or the description about if this was an advertisement or not… Please let us know if the channel got paid. Kinda feels like you're not being transparent. Manipulating your audience isn't it.

  • Lavish Lily says:

    I have acne and I've tried many things, I've never heard about this, I'm gonna try this🙂

  • C M says:

    Definitely NOT “affordable”. I use products from this brand and it’s so expensive, and now I’m finding out from the comments it’s not good to put vit c right after using the Banisher!! I don’t want my skin to get ruined

  • Nisha Ni says:

    $60 🙄

  • Jordan Wyn says:

    Citations? I was "eh, standard fluff" for most of the skincare talk, but sulfur baths driving out "cancer toxins" set off my Defcon 1 red alert. Nope! Nope nope nope! That is both not true and incredibly dangerous to spread.

  • Mouna G says:

    Well you did not talk about the worst type of acne scarring …. Keloids, basically the opposite of indentation scars . Unfortunately they are not treatable …… screw acne. I guess i need to start working on a remedy to cure keloid scars

  • Alex Zubkov says:

    I was using banisher+vitamin c since November 2019, result is amazing. My skin gets even tone, breakouts on my cheeks reduced drastically, red dots gone. Applied every week once a week with my regular routine. They suggest using it for 8 weeks in a row, then you have to buy a new one which is overkill IMO. I don't see any reason why those solid gold needles have to be replaced every 8 weeks rather than aggressive marketing. I have no issue using this product so far, 5 stars!

  • AYAH says:

    I just put benzoyl peroxide on my skin just now….😵

  • Valeria Almqvist says:

    In what world are sulfates good for your skin and specially acne prone skin…

  • Samantha Lim says:

    Does anyone has
    combination skin but dehydrated??🤔

  • Lakshita Jain says:

    Lasers are not bad for people with asian skin at all.

  • yooow wassuup says:

    Can you review iUnik 💜 I am being skeptical about buying it cuz it's on the cheap side and I'm afraid it might not give life- changing results 😅

  • Emily Balan says:

    She lost me when she told the story about the doctor telling her lasers wouldn't work on her because she's Asian and has a brown undertone. That's just plain racism and doctors are very prone to it. I know she took a different route to solve her problem, but I have a problem with her reiterating that story without clarifying the misinformation. The way she spoke in an interview intended to give advice to others seems like she just let it rock and that doesn't sit well with me.

  • Essa MD says:

    Love this! I’m an anesthesiologist and I used to have severe acne as well! After I got rid of the acne, I used Vitamin C serum to brighten my skin and remove scarring 💓 hope that helps someone

  • S S says:

    Their Hair 😍😍

  • Jessica Pitchford says:

    Wow, such expensive pseudoscience.

  • Vera Limpens says:

    I love the stamp, but use my own skincare with it. I don't believe the skincare from Banish is that amazing, there's better skincare out there.

  • Jamie Hawkins says:

    not everyone needs to go vegan… I did a food intolerance test and I am severely sensitive to eggs!!! of course, going vegan would have solved my problems with my acne, but now I can still eat meat and dairy with no issues. Take a test before making drastic dietary changes!!

  • Sophie Knowles says:

    Love your vids BW but this one really made me feel uncomfortable. Mint? Really? I'm out

  • Kylie Wilson says:

    Going vegan is great! Buuuut I have to eat meat 🥩 so all you have to do is only buy good meat that’s only grass fed and cage free eggs too .. helped my skin a lot

  • Pilar says:

    Thanks for the video, I'm learning about this as my daughter is acne prone. Also, I'm hoping to see reviews on Youth to the People and Round Lab products, as it's difficult to find info on them, thanks again ✨

  • sj1605 says:

    It baffles me how so many people are ignorant about the side effects of volatile essential oils. They are waiting for a reaction to happen on their skin before believing facts.

  • Charity Corro Guiao says:

    I use the ordinary’s niacinamide in the morning. Is it safe to pair with these vit c products? If not, which of these work well with niacinamide?

  • Sam says:


  • Kirsten Henry says:

    Vitamin C breaks me out and I know I'm not alone. It's not a very stable ingredient in these types of products so I hate that it's recommended all the time.

  • Sumy Sangha says:

    can you do a video all about whiteheads

  • sara bruno says:

    Omg i also had childhood acne 🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️

  • Sasha A. says:

    can someone answer this please💜!! so my skin doctor gave me this cream Benzol peroxide I think it’s called should I wash my face before like with people would normally wash there face with it should I just keep using water then putting it on then using water in the morning? Thanks for reading luvs 💜.!!

  • Jisa jz says:

    Early taking care of skin is so important. It’s not good to experiment with products. Even though it’s costly but finding perfect dermatologist is life saver. Better than try 1000 different products and spoil your skin. Because once’s it’s lost it’s natural tone. It’s hard to get back the natural clear skin. A dermatologist can understand and customize skin based on each ones needs. I have sensitive skin my dermatologist gave one pill and one cream and told to use clintamisin every night. It saved my life. Literally.

  • Hellraiky x says:

    I mean serpent venom is natural does it mean then it's a good ingredient to put on my skin?
    I like her message she does seems like a very positif person but the all video seemed like an ad and a lot of misinformation..
