A lot of friends love the Heimish All Clean Balm. I gave it a go out of curiosity–will it perform as well as my favorite Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm?
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
Per Skincarisma, this cleanser is generally safe but there are ingredients oily and sensitive skins should be aware of. Those with oily skin should take note of Shea Butter and Ethylhexyl Palmitate as both are comedogenic. For those with sensitive skins, the following can cause irritation: Lavender Oil, Grapefruit Seed Oil, Tea Tree Leaf Oil, Citric Acid, and Eucalyptus Globolus Leaf Oil.
However, the Heimish All Clean Balm more than a cleanser as it also has acne-fighting and anti-aging ingredients. This is also paraben-, sulfate-, and alcohol-free.
More ingredients information are available in Skincarisma.
A tub of the Heimish All Clean Balm contains 120ml of product and includes a spatula. The consistency of the balm is slightly thicker and feels less oilier than the Clinique balm.
From StyleKorean’s website:
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.
Massaging this all over my face after a long day with makeup on just feels so relaxing. I use as much as much as the size of a 25 centavo or add little more if my face already feels gross with the mix of makeup and dirt/pollution. It removes everything without leaving any residue. I just have this habit of massaging on and around my eyes longer to be sure I get everything off. Sometimes after I rub the balm all over, I wet my hands a bit and do it again. The balm doesn’t leave any oily residue after washing it off.
It has an herbal-like scent that I wasn’t into at first, but it grew on me.
This balm melts easily. Mine was too when I received it. Others would have put theirs in the fridge, but I used mine as is and it was okay. It slightly hardened eventually. I think melting while on transit/delivery is the usual issue with it; that should be taken note of when ordering.
Here’s a simple step-by-step on how to use from StyleKorean.com.
Then here’s when I removed the swatches of the Dior Rouge Dior Liquid on my arm.
This would be my second cleansing balm option. I will probably choose this over the Clinique’s for the cheaper price, but it’s just not as accessible.
Available in Kbeauty Cafe and some Shopee sellers. There is also a travel size you can purchase to try. If you have problems removing matte liquid lipsticks or waterproof mascaras, cleansing balms like this is for you. 🙂
