Now I know I’m always stressing the importance of the Korean 'Double Cleanse
', but it’s the only way to effectively remove all the makeup, dirt and oil from your skin after a long day. Within a couple of months of launching, we sold out of the Heimish All Clean Balm
and there's a reason for that. The results from using this balm are honestly just amazing and is the perfect first step to your Korean Double Cleanse routine. Also, you don’t need to worry as we’re back in stock now!
The first step of the Korean Double Cleanse is to use a balm or oil based cleanser to remove makeup, dirt and oil. If you tend to wear quite heavy makeup, the Heimish All Clean Balm
is fantastic for removing it. It will gently dissolve sebum and makeup without irritating or drying out your skin. I love the packaging too - the beautiful pattern on the box with the bronze detailing is replicated on the pot. It has a really premium feel and makes a lovely gift. Once you open the lid there is a hygienic seal and a little spatula to scoop out the balm with.
Why is this cleansing balm better than others on the market?
Heimish All Clean Balm
easily (and I mean easily) dissolves makeup, and it does so without any harsh ingredients. I’m a big believer in cleansers which aren’t harsh on your skin and Heimish is an intensive cleansing balm which is still super gentle on the skin. A cleansing balm is a solid version of a cleansing oil. For those of you who tend to wear sunscreen, foundation, heavy eye makeup etc... this is the cleanser for you. You’ll get beautifully clear skin without having to use a cleanser than will irritate or dehydrate your skin. For only £16.50 for a massive tub (120ml) I think this Korean balm is fantastic value for money.
When you first open this balm you’ll notice a pleasant natural smell. I can immediately identify the smells of Eucalyptus, Lavender and Coconut Oil. The Heimish All Clean Balm contains so many botanical ingredients with antioxidants to intensively care for the skin with Vitamins A, C, D and E to nourish the skin. It contains Rose and Lavender extracts which help promote collagen production. Orange, Grapefruit and Lime extract to brighten the skin. Tea Tree to clear and reduce blemishes. Also Donkey milk (a secret K-Beauty star ingredient!), Shea Butter and Coconut nourish and hydrate the skin. Unlike other balms on the market, there are no added fragrances, parabens or mineral oils. The full list of ingredients is at the bottom of the blog if you want to see all the amazing natural ingredients in this balm.
How to effectively cleanse
Using the spatula take an appropriate amount of the balm. Massage this silky balm onto dry skin, working your way round your whole face. You’ll see it breakdown your makeup, it will also be breaking down any sunscreen, sebum and dirt from the day. Lastly, you can use it on your eyes and lips, it’s fantastic at removing eye makeup, but please be careful not to open your eyes and get the product in your eyes. To finish, massage warm water onto your skin and then rinse. You’ll notice how fresh your skin feels, my skin always feel brighter without feeling tight or dry. I think this cleanser is a winner when paired with the Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Cleanser
. Using a foam cleanser is the second step in the Korean double cleanse, only £15 to effectively remove all the dirt and grime. Using a cleansing tool will also make your cleansers work harder for you and will remove dead skin cells. The Konjac Green Tea Sponge
(my favourite Konjac Sponge!) will leave you with brighter fresher skin.
