Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

I really like this product. It melts my makeup right off my face, but it can get really messy really quick. The only con that I have is if you use it to remove you eye makeup, it makes your eyes SUPER blurry and my eyes watered all day the next day. I will not use it on eye make up every again, but for face makeup, it is excellent.

          Messy and clouds eyes

          By Sandy

          from Atlanta

          Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

          I was excited to try. But after three months I do not recommend. It does remove even waterproof makeup, but it is too messy and unsanitary. When I apply it on my eyes it clouds my vision. Even after I thoroughly rinse, I still feel like I have something in my eye and my vision is blurry. If it were made into a pump and the formula was gentler on the eyes I might give it a second try.

            I don't have anything bad to say about the product. I made the mistake of using waterproof mascara one day and it kind of struggled to take it off but I don't wear waterproof mascara every day anyway so its okay.

              I've needed this for a long time! It's a good idea to remove your makeup before washing your face. This stuff just melts it right off! Even my harsh eyeliner that is waterproof. Lasts forever! Just buy it!

                I see many products get over hyped on social media but this product has certainly lived up to its hype. By far one of the best make up removers I have ever purchased, I don't think I'll ever buy any other make up remover.

                I have repurchased this product time and time again - it has totally changed my night time routine. I wear a full face of make up on a daily basis, full coverage foundation, liquid lip, 2 coats of mascara... the whole nine yards, and this cleansing balm takes it all off with ease. I will say that after I use this product I do go ahead and use my regular face cleanser just to remove any residue from the cleansing balm - its pretty greasy (which i think is necessary) so adding a cleanser after use is key. I only have one complaint - CLINIQUE PLEASE MAKE THIS IN A TRAVEL SIZE!!!

                The beauty consultant was very good at promoting this product and I did tell her how sensitive my skin is.
                It's very emollient but my cheeks broke out.

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