Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

I bought this product for my mom for Christmas because she loves it and swears by it. Overall the product works well, it takes off all makeup (even eye makeup) and it only takes a minute. The only con I have is that it is expensive and when you rub it all over foundation and other face makeup it feels a little greasy but it's totally bareable once you rinse it off.

    Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

    I was really disappointed with this product because so many YouTube gurus I watch recommended how it was so amazing. Well the philosophy purity cleanser works SOOO much better, it actually takes my mascara off. This, on the other hand, does not. I have to use this PLUS the purity cleanser just to take my make up completely off. I wish I had never wasted money on it. For the price, it is not worth it to me at all. I'm confused that people say it works great for them and even takes their mascara off... Ima take a hard pass on this one.

    It broke me out

    By Rachel

    from Houston

    Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

    I bought this after hearing great things about it and to save money in the long haul by not having to buy so many makeup remover wipes. But unfortunately this product has broken me out in tiny pimples all over my face. In addition, I don't like the idea of rubbing my eyes to remove makeup because that can give you wrinkles. I do have relatively sensitive skin but with all the people I know with sensitive skin using this, I thought I would be fine. It feels nice once the product is wiped away, but unfortunately I will be returning this today after 3 days of use

    Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

    I absolutely love this product! It removes everything with ease and there was no need to tug and pull at my eye area, just gentle circular motions. After I've massaged my whole face, I wipe with a wet cloth and go back in with a simple cleanser.

        I use this product at night before I use my cleanser to remove my make up. It just melts my make up off with little to no effort. Just get a blob on your fingers and spread all over and it removes your make up. Rinse it off and cleanse as normal.

          • Q:

            My skin likes routine or else I find it breaking out. Am I able to use this even on the days when I have no makeup on to stick to a routine? Are there benefits to using it without having makeup on?

              A:

              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.
