Banila Co. Clean It Zero Vs. Heimish All Clean Balm

Cleansing the face is my favorite step of my skincare routine, for an obvious reason that you always have to start clean. Not to mentioned that there’s nothing more refreshing than a splash of cold water in the face. I have gel type cleansers, foaming facial washes, cleansing oils, cleansing pads, you name it. Then there are cleansing balms. Two of the most famous cleansing balms in the Asian Beauty Community today is the Banila Co. Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm and the Heimish All Clean Cleansing Balm. I got samples of each and now I’m wondering from which brand should I get a full size tub from. Let’s see. 

Banila Co. Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm and Heimish All Clean Cleansing Balm are both made in Korea. They promise to quickly remove makeup and leave the skin feeling clean and fresh. Banila Co. Clean It Zero has a total of four variants to cater different skin types namely: (1) Radiance – for dry skin (2) Resveratrol – for oily skin type (3) Purity – for sensitive skin and (4) Pink – for combination/normal skin type.

The collection includes a Brow Liner with Brow Mascara and a Matte Crayon Lipstick in two shades each.
