Today, I’m comparing two Korean cleansing balms: Banila Co. Clean It Zero (Original) and Heimish All Clean Balm. I’ve previously compared the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm and the Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm (read my review).
Banila Co. Clean It Zero Original
This sherbet-textured cleansing balm melts onto your skin to dissolve away sebum, pore-clogging impurities, and waterproof makeup in one simple step! This best-selling cleanser from Banila Co. has a mild formulation that is gentle yet effective, leaving behind zero residue. This oil-based cleanser deeply cleanses and mildly exfoliates without stripping the skin dry, so your skin stays happily hydrated after cleansing!
Heimish All Clean Balm
The Heimish All Clean Balm melts effortlessly into a smooth oil to dissolve away heavy makeup, impurities, and excess sebum. The oil emulsifies into a milky solution upon contact with water, leaving your skin clean without stripping away the skin’s natural oils. Shea butter, lime extract, and tea tree oil nourish and protect the skin during cleansing. Available in a solid balm texture, this cleanser is is all clean and no mess, making it easy to use and super travel-friendly!
The two balms are the same price, but the All Clean Balm has 120mL while the Clean It Zero has 100mL.
The All Clean Balm doesn’t have fragrance while the Clean It Zero does.
I like the packaging of both, the Clean It Zero’s line of products are really pretty (pink, purple, etc.), but obviously I’m not going to choose one or the other based on packaging.
WINNER: Heimish All Clean Balm
To me, they perform the same. Since it’s a cleansing balm, I don’t mind the light herbal scent of the Heimish All Clean Balm. Since you get more with the All Clean Balm and it’s unfragranced, I prefer it over the Banila Co. Clean It Zero.
Have you tried these cleansing balms? Which did you prefer?
