Cost & Size
The Heimish All Clean Clay Foam cost average from RM 48- RM50 in size of 150 ml tube.
You can purchase it widely through online from any beauty and skincare retailer you can find but mine was gifted by Style Korean. For Malaysian you guys can get this at Hermo.
The colour is white to grey-is, light grey and texture is silky dense without water.
At first there is a pleasant aroma scents which I like but after foam was created, the scents changed to different aroma (like natural earthy clay scents) .
A moderate amount of water was added and gently massage the cleanser. At first the cleanser became fluffy and a bit foamy.
After a few seconds massage your skin, the texture of cleanser changed to lightweight whipped cream foam. It was kind of foamy.
As you cleanse and massage your skin about 20-30 seconds the texture became smooth, thick whipped cream foam and doesn’t spills away. It’s not watery.
There’s no denying, Heimish produces excellent products especially their most popular ALL CLEAN cleansing balm. So to complete the 2nd steps of double cleansing is with their All Clean White Clay foam. And as I do some research on clay foam or clay wash, it already became a trend since 2017. Despite clay can be so beneficial to all skin types, it does make sense after all. Both clay wash and clay-based masks give benefits that help purify and exfoliate the skin, to unclog pores and absorb excess oil. But the differences between these two is time-consuming, where clay wash is seem to be less time-consuming and more gentle than clay-based masks. I love using clay mask whenever my skin feels a little oily throughout the day, so not giving a try with this All Clean White Clay foam.
Since the main ingredient is Kaolin (1500 mg) so the texture itself is quite dense and thick. Therefore you need to squeeze firmly to get it out of tube. I really enjoy massage the foamy lather yet thick whipped cream foam on my skin. It feels really soft and silky smooth. It rinses off well with cool water. My skin felt really cleaned & soft but as I patted dry eventually there was tightness after a few seconds. But unfortunately, the only thing that I don’t like about clay cleansers in general is that clay is alkaline, their pH tends to be slightly higher than my preferred level of pH 5-6 range.
For me this clay foam cleanser is perfect for deep cleansing 2-3 times a week for dry skin, but do marvelous for acne/oily skin.
