      Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

      Before I started using this, I went through the pain of removing my eye makeup with a remover, then my face makeup with Micellar Water, all before using a cleanser to wash my face. I still use the double cleanse method at night simply because I pile on skincare and makeup products everyday. This takes it all off before cleanse with my Clarisonic to stay exfoliated. When first applied, you think it's going to be a greasy mess, but as soon as water hits it, it turns into this gentle, easy to rinse, milk-like consistency that rinse clean and quickly. It's interesting and effective. After trying it, I thought I would try to find similar products that were cheaper; they simply didn't do what this does. I've concluded that this Cleansing Balm is something that I simply have to keep on hand. It removes all makeup, even waterproof mascara and eyeliner without leaving any mess behind. Clinique and I have a love/hate relationship; this is one of the products on the love list.

      For reference:
      I have aging, dry, combination/oily acne prone skin with some sun damage from being a sun worshipper in my younger years. I am a skincare/makeup junkie and would bet large amounts of money that if you've heard of it, I've tried it.

          Wasn't really what I was expecting. I guess I don't like the oily-ness my face feels after using this product. May as well just use a makeup wipe to take the makeup off.

          Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

          I don't wear foundation/concealer etc often, but when I take it off I always use this! Every time I use it it comes off no problem and my skin feels so soft. When I use a make up wipe I feel like I might have missed some or that feeling it's still on. Not with this stuff! It doesn't feel heavy either.

            Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

            I received a sample of this product and decided to buy the full-size product. The packaging has the classic Clinique look. This is a good size tub of product and I expect that it should last a long time. The product is a solid cleansing balm. You have to run your fingers over the surface a few times to get some to melt. After that, rub it into your face and neck. Makeup, even mascara, will literally melt off. This cleansing balm is best removed with a warm, damp washcloth. I like that this is so gentle yet effective. I follow this cleansing balm with my regular cleanser. I will definitely buy this again.

              Best make up remover I have ever used - removes eye make up (even with primer) and mascara without rough rubbing. Washes off easily and leaves skin totally clean. Container is huge (will last a long time) and they even have a travel size! Cannot recommend this highly enough!

                  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.
