I’ve been a fanatic about cleansing ever since high school, using my first toner to remove residual dirt and gunk off my face. Since then I learned about the importance of double-cleansing, and how washing your face with cleanser alone is not sufficient. I’ve been meaning to try another Korean cleansing balm, and decided after reading great reviews to try Heimish All Clean balm.

I’ve dabbled with different types of makeup removers, and find myself always gravitating towards oils and balms. I think it’s the nourishing nature of this form, along with its excellent makeup removal abilities that draws me in. I first used Shu Uemura’s legendary cleansing oil back when I was still in college, and proceeded to purchase 1000ml bottles of it at duty free. I have since graduated from oils and moved on to balms, however, because it’s a lot more convenient to travel with.

My current favorite balm is the Clinique Take The Day Off balm, which is an excellent choice for people who want to try balms. For anyone curious about Korean skincare, or want a more wallet-friendly option, Heimish’s All Clean Balm makes a good choice.  A couple of things to note about this product:

  • It’s 120 ml which is about 3.5 oz, and retails for about $20 depending on where you buy it
  • A great solid choice for a cleansing balm that works really well at a fair price point
  • Love the fact that it comes with a little cover and spatula which makes it very convenient and easy to use

Performance and texture wise, a lot of people compare the Heimish All Clean Balm to the Banila Clean It Zero Balm, which I’ve also used before in the past. While I find the performance and aesthetics of the two products to be similar, I find the consistency of this balm to be a little more liquidy than Banila, so if you’re traveling it with, please be careful.

Key ingredients of the Heimish All Clean Balm: Shea butter, Lime Extract, and natural oils for fragrance. If you don’t like fragrance in your skincare, you might want to shy away from this product as there’s definitely a noticeable, but I would say pleasant, scent.  It also has Orange Peel Oil, so there’s where the citrus kick comes in, Lavender Extract, Tea Tree Oil, Rose Extract, and Bergamot Fruit Oil.

You will see that overall it did a great job breaking down all of the makeup, and rinses off quite well, and leaves skin feeling comfortable, but does require more time and effort to take off all of the waterproof liner/mascara.
