Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

Before using this product, I had to look it up because there were no instructions on how to use it. It takes the face make up off better than mascara. It helps if you wipe it off dry. It feels like greasy wax.

      Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

      I only ever used face wipes but felt like they stripped my face and irritated my eyes when taking off mascara. I gave this a try and it's the best decision I've made. My face feels hydrated afterwords rather than dry and tight (not in a good way) and easily takes off mascara or a long lasting liquid lipstick.

            This product is amazing! I have super oily skin so I was a little hesitant at first but now that I use it I won't ever buy another makeup remover. I use waterproof mascara an eyeliner and it takes it all off in one swipe. I follow up with the Clinique 3 Step Skin Care System and I've never had an issues with my face breaking out.

              I bought a small sample of this, and when that's done I'm going to buy the full size! This takes off your make-up so effortlessly, it is worth every penny. Instead of buying pads to take off your make up, those only last a few weeks, this can last you so much longer depending on how much make-up you use.

                I was looking for a makeup remover that was not harsh on sensitive skin. I'm very happy with this product. You will need to use a wet wash cloth to remove the product around eye area. It can make vision blurry if not removed properly

                      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!

                      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!
