Heimish is a Korean upcoming brand. Upcoming for us, Europeans, because Korean brands start making their way on the European market only since a few years. You still need to be a “beauty freak” (I mean this in a positive sense) to find them, because you won’t find them in perfumeries or department sores (yet).
The Cleansing Balm is one of Heimish’ STAR PRODUCTS, as I heard from the (very friendly) importer of the brand. It has a kind of a “cult status” in its country of origin, and has the potential to get this here also.
What’s so nice/special about it ?
Well, it’s a cleansing balm,for a start. In my believe, there is NOTHING BETTER to clean your face with than a balm. A balm takes away ALL impureties, like dust, pollution, small exhaust fume particles and OILYNESS also. You might find this strange to believe but : LIKE ATTRACKS LIKE, meaning nothing dissolves oil (sebum from your pores) better that an oil. Except for mineral oil, of course, but that’s obvious.
Secondly, the product is LOADED with botanical ingredients, meaning plant extracts, some of which being essential oils. Now there’s always a lot of discussion about essential oils in cosmetics, but remember that it’s all about the dosage and SYNERGY between the ingredients. The product doesn’t smell of essential oils at all. At the contrary, it has a rather clinical, even “strange” smell, one has to get used to. In this product, the essential oils are not at all overwhelming and, together with the plant extracts make this an excellent ACTIVE/VITALISING cleanser.
Bottom Line :
EXCELLENT product for an even more excellent price.
Skin type: all, especially if you’re dry/unbalanced/dehydrated or too oily/sensitive.
I bought my product from My Little Wonderland.Their website is full of Korean products and is worth discovering. Great service too, by the way !
