Well hey guys as promised in today's video I'm going to be reviewing for you the cleansing bombs that I've tried out as a method to remove my mascara from the day as well as sunscreen from the face I do this method a few nights a week and on the other nights of the week when I'm not using the balms I use in a while the reason I alternate is simply because I have these products and I want to use them up and experiment with them.
I can share them with you but either one I found is working well for me.
With that today I'm going to be reviewing I have been trying the clean at zero purity for sensitive skin.
I'll tell you about that by banila co the all clean bomb by Hamish look how pretty the way it was and the Clinique take the day off cleansing balm that many of you asked me to review.
With that let's get started alright.
First up I'm going to come in with the vanilla co clean it zero purity cleansing balm that contains licorice root extract which you know from my Asian skincare qat can impart a brightening effect as well as a low which is moisturizing and anti-inflammatory glycerin and evening primrose oil now. This is not actually fragrance free it does contain a variety of essential oils but as I showed in my nighttime skincare routine and oil cleansing review I am going to wash it off afterwards I like that this comes with this little scoop e doodle here in a and that you can store in the lid and you can see I. This is a favorite of mine I've been using it pretty consistently now for a few weeks I'm really loving it. This is about how much I use here on the little spatula and I just put it on the tips of my clean fingers and first up here's here's what my face looks like at the end of the day gently dab a little bit on to the apples of my cheeks first and then nicely massage it over the face this really nicely breaks up all of the layers of sunscreen hat on to my eyes and it nicely goes over the lashes but is not heavy and does not get into my eyes I don't detect any heavy fragrance just by putting it on the eyes it doesn't burn or sting and it nicely breaks up all of the debris that has settled on my face and as I mentioned in the oil review I really haven't joy just uh this relaxing activity of massaging the the balm over my face and it nicely just distributes very evenly and no no tugging is required here which is one thing that I really like about this approach and it doesn't leave behind any heavy oily residue which is also great this shouldn't clog pores or be problematic for dry skin the presence of essential oils I would make make me a little bit apprehensive for sensitive skin is the only reservation but I really enjoyed this product and you can see here it does a really nice job taking off my mascara and you can't tell that it took off the sunscreen but I can definitely I definitely felt it coming off.
Next up is another one the Hamish all clean balm this contains shea butter and crazy enough donkey milk which I guess has been popular in Asian diets for many many years in certain parts of Asia and is now kind of an exciting potential skincare ingredient because it's supposedly low allergen and has high lactoferrin which has been shown to be helpful in kind of anti-inflammatory properties this does contain coconut oil which is fine but if you're sensitive to it or allergic to it just be aware of that and it also likewise contains a variety of essential oil.
It is not actually you know fragrance free it does have natural fragrances and essential oils can be problematic in skincare particularly if you sense if you're sensitive like the vanilla co one it's got this nice way to store the little spatula and I actually like the way that there a little storage tray here has a thing.
That you can lift it up and simple I mean it almost looks identical to the vanilla Co one and kind of looks just like coconut oil or Crisco or any sort of solid state vegetable oil honestly and here it is on the scoopy device about how much I have used consistently when I do use this product I sort of just alternate all of these things because I have them and I want to make sure that I use them they don't appear to contain preservative and.
Do store them in a cool place away from light nicely the packaging is opaque.
That's less of a problem and make sure you replace them you know every six months or.
I don't know that I would keep them around because oils and things can degrade and the absence of preservatives I know it always query you know then becoming contaminated but this hasn't caused any problems for me I mean any worsening of any kind of um acne or acne flares with it or noticing my pores becoming larger or anything like that and it does nicely take off the mascara Here I am just dabbing on my eyelids here very gently alright you can see again there's really no residual. This is after out here is after the hyaluronic acid foaming wash that I used to take this off because it should not be left on the skin but it really does a nice job I mean I feel like my skin is.
Clean when I'm done with this and there's not that dry squeaky clean feeling that that people think it's good but really is just just a parched stratum corneum. This is like clean and hydrated and just feeling good I really have enjoyed this approach and.
I feel as though banila co and Hamish are pretty similar just be aware of the different ingredients and if they are something you're allergic to then be aware of that but how pretty is the label I like this one I like it a lot I like this and the vanilla one there they're both good alright.
Lastly is a highly requested product the Clinique take the day off cleansing balm. This is my first impression here I'm going to show you guys in the video this product I was really drawn to because a of its popularity and be it is fragrance free and mineral oil free and it always says the touting dermatologist tested but. This is actually me testing it out for the first time and it contains safflower oil and again here it is in its solid state I got the travel sized version of it to try out here and I'm not sure comment below does the biggie size come with a scoop e doodle because the baby one doesn't.
I had to get a a tongue depressor sterols tongue depressor to remove a little bit out and just put here on my clean fingertips but I wish it had a little baby scoop anyways. Okay, similarly I just DA bit you know on the cheeks first and then lightly over the eyes. This is probably where the majority of gunk collects for me I would say given what what my makeup wearing approaches minimal and really no tugging here either this one is a little bit drier than the vanilla co and the hamish ones does require a little bit more pull to get over the surfaces um and but overall feels pretty lightweight does a good job I mean all of these oils and balms break up the mascara nicely and Here I am after the double cleanse I think it did a good job.
You can see here my face isn't red again like the others its hydrated and good to go I think. This is a great option I like that it comes in a travel size because I need one to go one for my travel bag now that I'm into oil base cleansing I like that it's fragrance free well alright guys.
I hope you enjoyed the cleansing balm review um comment below on which balms are your favorites um and if you use any of these or any others that are good but far and away my favorite one has to be the vanilla coke lien at zero I just find that this goes on very very nicely and it's very relaxing to put on the face and it does a very good job removing mascara and makeup throughout the day I also really liked the Hamish one as well a little bit more gritty than the vanilla Co one but very good and also clean and no-nonsense and enjoyable to put on I liked that one um I was slightly disappointed I suppose with the Clinique take the day off one but I did really liked it I suppose my disappointment in it was that I just didn't find that it distributed as as rigorously or as robustly if you will as the other two and then I might have needed a little bit more copia I found that I needed copious amount of it to get it on my face and just take off my mascara.
But I don't wear a heavy makeup I have heard this this breaks up heavy foundation quite well.
Comment below on it that's been your experience but I love that this comes in this tiny travel one because now that I'm into the double cleansing thing I need travel sizes of things.
This will be my travel cleansing balm now.
Yeah I really enjoyed doing this similar to how I do with the cleansing oils I follow it up with the hot olavo hyaluronic acid foam as I showed in my nighttime skincare routines and make sure you check that out if you missed it and if you miss my my cleansing oils review from last week make sure you check that one out too where I talked about the different cleansing oils that I've used but yeah I really enjoy this approach like I said last week I found that my eyelash health has substantially improved because I'm just not having to rub the eyes as much.
I've really been enjoying and it's also very relaxing to to do on the face I find as you can see in my review of it.
I hope you guys enjoyed this video give it a thumbs up share it with your friends and as always don't forget sunscreen and subscribe I'll talk to you guys tomorrow bye you.
