        Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

        I used the Clinique cleansing oil and I do love it but I wanted to try to the balm to see which one would work better for my changing skin (post-pregnancy). This balm does a beautiful job of removing make up very gently and effectively. I also think this could last for a lot longer than the oil can. Love.

          Thus stuff is amazing. Grab a global and rub it between your finger and it will melt. Apply to your face and it just slides your make up off. Wash it off, I like to do wash it off with cleanser. (Why not do the night routine?) Feels to nice. No harsh scrubbing needed.

                Would you recommend this clinique cleansing balm or the clinique cleansing oil? My skin is combination both dry and oily. Also the oil is 6.7 Oz and the balm is 3.8 Oz but they're the same process is there a reason for that?

                  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!

                  Hi. Thank you for your interest in Clinique! This is a wonderful cleansing balm! We suggest rinsing with warm water when using this product. It will dissolve foundation and makeup pigments very quickly. To cleanse the skin of dirt and oil, follow with Clinique's Facial Soap in your customized formula before exfoliating and moisturizing your skin. Have a wonderful day!

                  Hi! You can use it on days that you are not wearing makeup, but instead I would suggest using Clinique's facial soap daily. It offers a nice cleanse to the skin, even when you are not in need of makeup removal. This would give you the option of only partnering Clinique's Take The Day Off formula when needed. Thank you for your question!

                  Only a small amount of this product is needed to remove your makeup. If using it once a day, based on the amount needed, it should last about 3 months, but please know that product usage varies with each person and we do not guarantee a specific timeframe.
