I have been using the Micellar wipes since they first came out and love them. When I saw this new product decided to give it a try. Since I have dry skin I purchased the purple one (which is for combo/dry skin). To use it place a small amount (size of a quarter) in your palm and rub between hands. Apply to your dry face and gently swirl all over. Then either rinse off or use a tissue. It works well to remove makeup and leaves your face soft. However, I do wear a lot of makeup (primer, foundation, blush, bronzer, eye shadow, eye liner, mascara) and it did not remove my mascara. I still had to use the (purple) Take the Day Off to get both the mascara and eye liner completely removed. I also found that the Clarifying Lotion (#2) picked up much more makeup on the cotton pad then it does when I used the wipes to remove my makeup. Although I like the product the wipes work much better at removing all your makeup.
Clinique has many great products, but this is not it. This product does not remove makeup let alone clean the skin. After messaging this product in and rinsing it off, there is still a lot of makeup left on my face. It leaves my skin feeling oily which is the exact opposite of how I want it to feel being that I have oily combo skin. This product just does not work. I will go back to using the take the day off balm, that I love, along with my cleanser. All in one sounded great but this product just did not deliver.

I had hopes this product would work well but it just doesn't cut it for me. I don't wear a lot of makeup and the mascara I use isn't waterproof. This product not only stings my skin, especially the eye area but isn't getting the makeup off even with several applications. I hate to be critical especially since I have used Clinique for over 40 years. This is actually the first time I've left review and am sorry it's not positive.

If all your makeup includes is cheap mascara and brows then yeah this is okay. BUT if you are a cakey makeup person like myself DONT get this, waste of money. You have to use so much product to even attempt to get SOME foundation off. It's horrible don't get this.

My friend recommended this product to me. I used it one time. It's really good. It's easy to remover my makeup and my skin is soft and clean after washing face with it. I like it.

This product is bad, I mean really bad, doesn't remove makeup at all and it is sticky, greasy..... doesn't feel good on your skin.

I've only been using this for four days now and I'm already obsessed with it! I use it at night in lieu of the liquid facial soap - I had been looking for quite a while for something like this - and after only one usage and less than 24 hours, I could already feel that my skin felt softer, cleaner, and that a stubborn patch of bumps/rough skin that I'd been fighting for months was starting to clear up. So amazed! I personally wipe it across dry skin with a cotton pad and then splash off with water, but it didn't feel heavy/tacky like other supposedly non-rinse micellar products I've used, so I can imagine that in the colder months I might not bother rinsing at all. So far, I'm so happy with this one!

I was looking for a cleanser that was free of SLS and so happy Clinique finally came out with one. Once in a while my perioral dermatitis flares up around my chin and it is VERY stubborn and hard to get rid of. It looks like acne but it burns and peels...it's terrible. Usually I have to go to a dermatologist and take antibiotics to make the dermatitis go away. I started using this gentle cleanser about a week ago and so far I haven't had any flare-ups and my dermatitis looks like it may be healing. I really love how soft this cleanser makes my skin feel after washing. This will definitely be my go to cleanser from now on!

Seems to do a decent job of getting face makeup off (I don't wear much, usually just concealer and setting powder so may not work well with a full makeup face). Doesn't do the trick with eye makeup though. I had to use a cleansing wipe to remove the rest of my eye makeup (non-waterproof mascara and eyeliner). The take off the day cleansing balm works much better.

It takes off some makeup, barely. I still have makeup residue and have to go back in with my purity face wash. Also when I tried it again, with my Clarisonic, it caused my makeup to stain my brush head and won't come out and that had never happened with my normal wash.
