Product Review: Heimish All Clean Balm

      If you subscribe to Meejmuse on Youtube like I do, you've probably already heard of the All Clean Balm by Heimish because she raved about it on her channel some time ago. Heimish is actually a very new Korean brand that launched in 2016, so they only have a few products in their lineup. However, it seems that the All Clean Balm has been getting a lot of love in the beauty blogosphere. I don't currently have a cleansing balm in my beauty cabinet, and I purchased it not having any expectations about the brand.

Heimish All Clean Balm, 4oz
Price: $18-22

A daily cleanser for removing heavy makeup easily. Spa cleanser with natural aroma oil, natural vegetable ingredients for deep cleansing, a 3-step transformer texture (balm-oil-milk).

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


      The thing I really like about this cleansing balm is that it is mineral oil and paraban free. The Clean it Zero cleansing balm by Banila co while extremely popular, has mineral oil listed as the first ingredient in it so I never purchased it even though it was for a time the most popular cleansing balm from Korea. Although I never purchased Clean it Zero, I have seen it in stores and have smelled it. I think it smells quite nice, but the All Clean Balm by Heimish smells medicinal and has a menthol note to it. It's honestly not the best smelling and you can still smell it quite a bit when you spread it over your face. In terms of cleansing, it does a good job, but I find that it takes quite some time to melt completely and sometimes I still have a tiny bit of balm that is still solid and not liquified into oil when I'm cleansing my face. You can kind of see that from the last picture above in that there are tiny white dots which are pieces of the balm that hasn't turned into oil. Unlike the Shu Uemura cleansing oil that I recently reviewed here, I like how it doesn't leave my face feeling like it has any film left on it. 


Concluding Remarks

      I don't love this cleansing balm but I don't hate it either. It's a pretty big tub, so it'll take me a while to get through it until I can justify purchasing and trying another cleansing balm that I might love more. It's definitely a more affordable cleansing balm option and you do get a lot of bang for your buck. I just don't like how it doesn't melt consistently and I think the scent really could be better. I personally don't see myself repurchasing this when I finish the tub.
