          I have been using the same oil makeup remover for years, then I came across this product and I was skeptical but I am in LOVE. It isnt super oily, which is nice because I have oily skin. It removed ALL my makeup.

                    This gets the job done without drying out my skin or making my acne skin more oily. This leaves my skin feeling soft and balanced. The best part, I don't dread taking my makeup at the end of the day. Takes off mascara, foundation, and sunscreen. I have clearer skin because of this simple, overlooked step of my skincare routine. I no longer need to buy cotton pads, or go through bottles of micellar water, and makeup wipes.

                        We appreciate the opportunity to explain that we do not have a comprehensive list of products that contain or don't contain certain ingredients. However, if you would kindly provide us with the specific product names with which you are interested, we will then consult our laboratories and share our findings with you.

                        In addressing your concern about gluten, we would like to explain that a vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources are used in the manufacture of Estee Lauder Companies' products. It is therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten. For example, it is possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning. We therefore recommend that you discuss this with your physician, because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us. Thank you for your interest in Clinique and have a great week!

                        Hi! The balm is in a solid form and when applied to the skin, it actually melts into an oil form. They are both amazing products and work in the same fashion, but the textures are a bit different. Thank you for your question and have a great week!

Can I immediately apply my serum and moisturizer? I recently started using the Smart Custom-Repair line. I read where you recommend using the 3 Step after it but I don't use this program. Thanks!

                        Hi! Thank you for your question. Clinique's Take the Day Off formulas are wonderful and I am excited for you to try them! The textures are unique with each formula, and often this is the reason that guests gravitate toward one specific formula vs. the other. Knowing that your skin is combination, you are a candidate for either formula. Thank you for your question and have a great week!
