    Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

    I tried the IT Cosmetics make up remover balm but returned it because it made my skin feel tight. I thought I would try Clinique's balm and so glad I did. It removes my makeup well and doesn't irritate my dry sensitive skin.

        After searching for a makeup remover that actually works I came across this product. I received the liquid version for Christmas. This is my second time buying the product. You don't have to use a lot , a little goes a long way.

          Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

          This works really well for face makeup and particularly well, for me at least, on the eyebrows. However, I don't like using it on the eyes. You have to rub a lot which is not the best for the delicates skin around the eyes and it leaves my eyes, even though they're closed, with a film on them and makes my vision blurry for a short while afterwards. Because of this I usually just end up using a micellar water or eye makeup remover to keep my vision from getting messed up. I do like it but I don't think I'd immediately repurchase because I like to try lots of different things and hardly ever repurchase items.

            By Megan

            from Virginia

            Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

            This product does a really awesome job at removing makeup and feels much more gentle than using a makeup wipe, HOWEVER it also made me break out in acne. Horribly. I have sensitive skin though so if you have normal skin then this product should work fine for you. I really love this product but since it made me break out I am unfortunately going to return it. Everyone's skin is different though so although it didn't work for me, it may work for you. I would still recommend this because it did an awesome job at removing my makeup.

            Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

            This is definitely not the easiest way to remove makeup in terms of time and effort but it works way more effectively than a wipe and I don't have to scrub my skin, just give myself a nice face massage. It doesn't smell good at all - would be nice if they could add a natural fragrance ingredient (like aloe or something) but I can live with it. Keep in mind that you are still supposed to rinse this product off afterwards and then you need to wash your face as well with a normal face wash.

                    Hi! Thank you for your interest in Clinique! You can use this as a cleanser, although you may enjoy Clinique's Facial Soap more if you do not wear make up. It is available in 3 customized formula, so you can purchase based on your exact skin needs. 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!

                    A:

                    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. Thank you for your question and for your interest in Clinique.
