SHEET MASK | Heimish Skincare Routine Review

Press samples

When it comes to Korean skincare brands, heimish has been at the top of my list to try because of its affordability, minimalist aesthetic, plant-based ingredients and of course their iconic All Clean Balm! I was recently given the opportunity to try a few things and let's just say that all have been winners!

All Clean Balm in Mandarin*

The heimish All Clean Balm has a bit of a reputation in the Korean skincare world and I have used the original unscented formulation before and enjoyed it. Trying the Mandarin version was just something extra special for me as I love the scent of oranges. 

When it comes to using a balm, since it is solid at room temperature, a spatula is required. The packaging is already cumbersome enough to have on a small bathroom counter (I will admit that my bathroom counter isn't THAT small, but I like having a small "endcap" of skincare in the bathroom!) so I appreciate when it includes a place for the spatula to sit.

This version of the All Clean Balm smells subtly citrusey and contains bitter orange, tangerine, mandarin and yuzu fruit extracts as well as lavender oil, turmeric root extract and moringa seed oil. In fact, there are MANY more plant extracts that all in all make this cleansing balms one of the nicest ones I have tried! The texture is described as a "sherbet-type balm" that melts gently into an oil. I will agree that this is certainly one of the nicer textures in that there are no chunks to dissolve and the transition from solid to oil happens quite quickly! It removes waterproof makeup without any issues and does not irritate my recently sensitive eyes. The oil feels plush and "full" and is almost therapeutic to massage all over my face and neck!

What makes this mask special? This lightly scented sheet mask calms and hydrates the skin with cica, allantoin and white tea extract as well as strengthens the skin barrier with probiotics like lactobacillus. Having skincare be an appropriate pH level has been very trendy the last few years, but I think that when it comes to Asian skincare, I rarely worry that products will be too acidic or too basic for human skin in general!

The mask material was flexible and soft allowing it to fold perfectly around all facial contours. As an aside, I also really like taking sheet mask selfies when I have my Kiss Falscara lashes on! Makes them look real extra!

Moringa Ceramide Hyaluronic Hydrating Watery Sunscreen*

Ah, here is where we get to the good stuff! Oh, how we all love sunscreen especially now that I am in my 40s and age really shows! I have good genes too, but even among the Asian crowd, I have been told that I look younger than my actual age. I will enjoy this statement for as long as I can! From the name of this chemical sunscreen, you can already tell that the texture is going to be a nice one! This can double as a moisturizer as it contain micro hyaluronic acid, which I am assuming is low molecular weight HA, as well as moringa oil to increase skin's elasticity. Though I do love a sunscreen with skincare benefits, ultimately, it's all about the UV protection!

As I mentioned, this sunscreen does feel slightly gel-like, but with a more watery consistency and absorbs very quickly into the skin without any stickiness or white cast.

Final verdict: I loved every single product I tried and if I can try more from heimish, I would! Each product was a pleasure to use and I would be most interested in trying more of their sunscreen products!

You can find heimish at various Korean e-tailers online and at if you live in the USA!
