Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

With one application, the ball melts away the most stubborn makeup. I bought specifically for long lasting waterproof foundation and mascara. Left nothing behind but soft smooth skin. I will definitely purchase again.

Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

I have tried multiple cleaners- nothing seems to get ALL of my makeup off-- I always have to wash twice, use a toner, wash again...etc.
This stuff is amazing. Don't know why I waited so long to try it.

    Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

    Works very well and literally melts off my makeup. I did notice that after using it feels like there is a weird film layer left on my skin, but I always just use a micellar cleanser afterwards. Skin feels very soft after use and not at all greasy. Works great but not sure that it's worth the money. Basic micellar cleansers do the job at a fraction of the cost.

      Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

      I have been using this product for a very long time. I love that I do not have to rub my skin hard when using this product to take off my makeup. I also use waterproof mascara and this product easily dissolves a waterproof mascara and leaves my skin feeling fresh and hydrated and soft. When I do is apply this to a dry face, work it all over my face 4 approximately 2 minutes, then I dumped in my skin with water and continue gently rubbing it off my skin. I still use a gentle cleanser afterward. I have recommended this product to my mother, and she loves it as well to take off her makeup. And I love that it comes in a travel-size.

            This is one of my favorite skin care items. It comes in a solid thick cream and then when put on the skin turns to a velvety light oil and then when water is added turns into a gentle cleanser. Perfect for taking off heavy makeup and sun screen as your first step before using a traditional cleanser. Does great with very oily skin.

              Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

              I was only just recommended this product yesterday but it's really amazing! I wore a full face of makeup for the day and at the end i used the balm and let me tell you, a little goes a long way! You don't need to put globs of this on your face! You rub it in and it turns into an oil that takes all your makeup off and then you wash it off. I was skeptical about it taking all my makeup off because usually it takes me a couple minutes to wash it all off as apposed to 2 minutes, but I used a makeup wipe and it came back clean. If you're like me and have naturally oily skin this can be a little scary to use when you see that it's marked "greasy", but it washed completely off and hasn't clogged my pores.

                  I am eager to try this product. I always look for a cleanser that will remove eye makeup as well as cleansing my face and this seems like it would be perfect. 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!

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.
