Double cleansing must-have
One of the main pillars of Korean skincare is double cleansing. Your first cleanser should be oil-based, Heimish All Clean Balm; this is the best way to remove makeup, sunscreen and excess oil. Your second cleanser should be a water-based one (gel or foam) to remove any leftover residue.
All Clean Balm starts as a solid and then transforms into a silky oil when it comes in contact with your skin. Once you’ve applied the balm, simply massage into your skin, rinse and pat dry. Because of its solid texture, All Clean Balm is mess-free and travel-friendly, plus it's loaded with skin-benefiting ingredients.
Why everyone is obsessed with this cleanser
Heimish launched in 2016 but has received a ton of well-deserved love in that short amount of time. Heimish All Clean Balm is Ohlolly’s best-selling product with over 100 five-star reviews.
Heimish All Clean Balm is constantly being compared with the most popular Korean cleansing balm, Banila Co. Clean It Zero. Not surprisingly, All Clean Balm comes out on top most of the time. Here’s why everyone loves this product.
“ Got it for the packaging but OH MY, I LOVE IT!” - Sam B.
Ok so I know packaging isn’t the most important, but I can’t read any All Clean Balm review without people raving about the packaging. It’s just so damn cute. Actually all Heimish products win big in this department. You can tell that the company intentionally designed their products to not only be beautiful, but also consumer-friendly. For example, inside All Clean Balm there is a second cover with an attached spatula to hygienically scoop out the balm. (But you can also just use clean hands if you’re a bit lazy like me.)
# 2 Ingredients
“I love the fact that it takes EVERYTHING OFF without the harsh ingredients that strip my skin's natural oils & pH balance.” - Kelly
Ingredients are really where Heimish outshines the competition. Let’s talk first about what Heimish All Clean Balm doesn’t contain: mineral oil, parabens or added fragrance. Banila Co. Clean It Zero contains all three. What All Clean Balm does contain is an impressive list of botanical ingredients that are full of antioxidants and vitamins. All Clean Balm also contains citrus oils and extracts, including lime, orange and grapefruit to naturally brighten skin, plus tea tree oil to help prevent breakouts. And shea butter and coconut extract to nourish and hydrate.
Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Polyethylene, PEG-8 Isostearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Fruit Extract, Freesia Refracta Extract, Iris Versicolor Extract, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Extract, Lilium Tigrinum Extract, Leontopodium Alpinum Extract, Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Narcissus Pseudo-Narcissus (Daffodil) Flower Extract, Rose Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Amyris Balsamifera Bark Oil, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Juniperus Mexicana Oil, Boswellia Carterii Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, 1, 2-Hexanediol
Even though All Clean Balm has no added fragrance, all those botanical ingredients give All Clean Balm an earthy, herbal scent. Most people either don’t mind the scent or love it, but some really dislike, or just needs some time to adjust.
“I was initially thrown off by the scent, which hit me as strongly peppermint/herbal. I still would prefer a lighter scent, but it's grown on me - it's therapeutic, almost clearing, nice at the end of a long day.” - RMS
# 3 Effectiveness
It’s beautiful, well-designed, full of natural ingredients and none of the nasties, but most importantly, Heimish All Clean Balm works, like really works. This is actually what all those five-star reviews are about. It easily and gently removes sunscreen and makeup, even waterproof makeup, without leaving skin feeling dry, stripped or greasy. What more could you ask for?
"It hydrates and sooths—and removes makeup like a beast." - Renée, Gothamista on YouTube
“Best makeup removing method I've ever used. My life has been changed by double cleansing starting with this baby.” - Sarah N.
“It's the first and only ‘first cleanser’ I've ever used, but why looking for something better when you already found the perfect product? Melts away the makeup as a dream, especially mascara which was always a nightmare to remove.” - Valentina
“Effective and gentle first cleanse. I could wax poetic about this all day.” - Yuu M.
