[HEIMISH] All Clean Balm: Review (+ little comparison with Banila Co. Clean it zero)

7:05:00 PM Mei B 29 Comments




Hello lovelies~~

If you are into K-beauty and K-skincare, you would absolutely have heard about the infamous Banila Co. Clean It Zero cleansing balm, and you would probably know that they now have a new competitor called Heimish All Clean Balm.
Personally, I have been curious to try this balm ever since it was first launched few months ago, and when I was about to purchase it, Stylekorean.com asked me if I was interested in they newly launched brand Heimish, which of course I was, it's heimish after all (okay I fell for this brand even before trying it, which rarely happens) so they sent me some Heimish products to try (you can find my IG post here). I've reviewed Heimish Dailism Blusher Palette in Stay Blossom a couple of days ago and now it's time to review this Heimish All Clean Balm






Description and claims:

Natural and No Paraben ! ,Heimish All clean balm 120ml, Good for cleansing thick make-up , Hypoallergenic ingredients included for sensitive skin type. Balm Type Cleanser but when it touches water, the texture is changed to oil cleanser such as Sherbet type.
This make up remover is fantastic. I have very sensitive and delicate skin so I'm very careful about what I use on it.
I just put a small amount of this remover on my hand, soak it on my face even eyes for a few seconds, make one swipe and that's it! The gel eyeliner, foundation, and mascara are all gone. There's no tugging on the super delicate area and no residue left behind and all my eyelashes are intact! I would buy this in a gallon size if it was offered.
Removes everything, except hydration! Most makeup removers cause irritation to my skin, but I've never had that problem with this product. Gently removes even the most long-lasting makeup and leaves skin feeling soft and protected.

Volume: 120ml


Ingredients:

Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Polyethylene, PEG-8 ISOSTEARATE, Shea Butter, Donkey Milk, ,Cocos Nucifera Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantifolia Fruit Extract, Freesia Refracta Extract, Iris Versicolor Extract, Jasminum Officinale Extract, Lilium Tigrinum Extract, Leontopodium Alpinum Extract, Nelumbium speciosum, Narcissus, Rose Extract, Citrus aurantium dulcis, Lavender Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Extract, Amyris Balsamifera Bark Oil, Citrus Paradisi Peel Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Tea tree leaf oil, Juniperus Mexicana Oil, Boswellia Carterii Oil,Citrus Aurantium Bergamia Fruit Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, 1, 2-Hexanediol



Packaging:




Just like what I've mentioned in my previous review, I'm a goner when it comes to heimish packaging. I mean, isn't this packaging just gorgeous? I love how they made a sturdy white plastic jar look simple yet elegant by adding the tropical leafs print and the rose gold accent, it's just so pleasant to look at, (bless yourself for all the packaging pics that you will have to scroll down through).








Another thing I love about this packaging is: Underneath the twist-off cap, there is a separate sturdy white lid for the spatula, which is... another plus for me.




Smell, Texture, Performance and Swatches:

The first thing that I noticed about this balm after taking of the protective lid was the scent, it's a really pleasant delicious scent that is a mixture of citrus and a little bit of lavender and some other herbal flavors, but mainly citrus. It immediately gave me the urge to go buy myself a lemon ice cream.



For those of you who don't know what a cleansing balm is, it's kinda like a solid version of a cleansing oil that melts down once it touches your skin. The banila co cleansing balm's texture was a little bit fluffy and easier to scoop out, while this one is a little harder but melts effortlessly into a smooth and silky oil when you massage it into your face and start breaking off your makeup efficiently, sparing you the mess you end up with when using cleansing oils, since there is absolutely no drippy colorful oil running down your arms and face and dirtying the sink and the floor in the process.


As you can see in the pictures above, I used my most long lasting makeup products: a couple of lip tints a black eyeliner, waterproof colored eyeliner and a waterproof mascara and some BB cream. Most of the products were removed almost immediately but I had to massage for longer time (less than a minute) to remove the colored eyeliner and one of the lip tints completely. Unlike cream and water makeup removers that leave my skin dry and irritated, after rinsing this balm cleanser out with lukewarm water, my skin was clean (no traces left) but super soft and moisturized,  which is the main reason I prefer oil/balm cleansers over the other kinds of makeup removers.
And if you ask me which one do I prefer out of Banila Co and Heimish balm cleansers, I would immediately pic heimish since (other than the gorgeous packaging and the nice scent) the ingredients are much better in my opinion, is more moisturizing and does a slightly better job at removing makeup than Banila co. But whichever you end up choosing will be a good choice since they are both really powerful cleansers.



Summary


Pros:

- Gorgeous packaging.
- Nice scent.
- Lots of natural oils and an awesome ingredient list.
- No added fragrance.
- Does a great job removing makeup almost instantly. 

Cons:


- I can't think of any to be honest, but some of you might not like the scent.




Do I recommend it?
Absolutely ♥

  3. To be honest, I didn't hear about cleaning balms before. It looks like it does a great job removing make-up and it might be a perfect solution for me because my eyes are so sensitive and all the make-up removers sting.

  12. I don't use make-up often just some eyeliner and my preferred lipstick for the day and that's it. This product is awesome though and I like that it leaves your skin soft afterwards. That's awesome.

  15. I love the packaging too! God, it's been so long since I ordered any K-beauty products since my trip back home. I'll have to try this brand. P.S. isn't it so annoying with the spatula? I have lots of products with spatulas. At first I loved it, but then it got so annoying to clean them all the time... I just used my hands to dip into the products now :P

    1. I prefer using my fingers rather than a spatula as well, but there are many people who consider it unhygienic to use ur fingers that's why I added it as a pro :p
