Banila Co. Hits Manila! #PHLovesBanilaCo
Korean makeup will always have a special place in my heart. I find that they offer more in terms of variety to us, Filipina women. We seem to get a more color-match in their foundations, bb creams, concealers, etc. Their skincare brands are superb and offer a wide array of selections that will help you with whatever skincare concern you may have.
That’s why when I heard that Banila Co is finally about to enter our country, I was ecstatic. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on their primer! Then last November 23, 2015, Banila Co invited me to their formal media launch, so of course I had to say YES! The event was held at Marco Polo Hotel and the place was filled with pink decorations, I thought I was attending a debut, to be quite honest! I loved the motif! So girly, indeed!
Here’s my vlog during the said event:
As you may already know, Banila Co is the most multi awarded Korean cosmetics brand in the field of base makeup. Its products help women achieve the popular Korean “Lit from Within” look. Banila Co.’s primers, foundations, gel eyeliners, CC creams, make up cleansers, and the like have been lauded by the most prestigious beauty arbiters in the industry for its prestige quality, creative packaging, and disruptive innovation.
Its Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm for instance, so captivated Korean beauty enthusiasts that they snapped up the product at a staggering rate of 1 cleanser for every 4.8 seconds.
Banila Co.’s Prime Primer, with its silky smooth texture and its potent ability to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines, was adjudged by Get It Beauty, a Korean cable program that reviews the best cosmetic products in the market, as the best primer in the industry. The company also boasts as having the first and only water-based CC cream in the market. The It Radiant CC Cream has been the bestselling CC cream in Korea for 3 years running.
During the event, Ms. Sam Oh, the event host, gave us a bit of background about the brand. She also introduced us to the brand’s CEO, Mr. Chang Soo Kim, who flew all the way from Korea just to welcome all of us and also, of course tell us more about the brand and why it’s now in our country.
From its humble beginnings in 2005, Banila Co. has grown rapidly in Korea and now has become the second best-performing Korean cosmetics brand in China. It now focuses its attention to South East Asia, headlined by concurrent launches in the Philippines and Taiwan. Subsequent launches in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand are earmarked for 2016. Banila Co opened its fist store in Glorieta 4 last November 14. It will soon open its doors Robinson’s Place Manila and other prime malls in Metro Manila and key provinces.
The event was also graced by Chief Makeup Artist Mr. Kangpil Kim, and Managing Directors Cathryn and Jon Lim of All That Blush Trading Inc. The brand is endorsed by Korean actress/TV presenter Song Ji Hyo of the Running Man Variety show fame.

They also did a demonstration of how they do their “No makeup-makeup look” as well as their sort of like their night out look or party look. As all Korean makeups do, they really focus on that dewy, glowy look.
All in all, I am really excited to try out their products especially their lipsticks as well as their eyeshadow palettes, I hear they’re quite promising. Oh, and the Clean It Zero Balm, just by testing it with the swatches that I did in my hand is just a-mah-zing. I will do a video demo and a detailed review about it soon. I definitely can’t wait!
