I tried the Clinique Take the Day Off Charcoal Cleansing Balm. It claims to quickly dissolve long wearing eye and face makeup. It also claims to help detoxify, reduce excess oils, and unclog pores. You simply use your fingertips to massage on dry skina¹, then simply rinse off with warm water. It also claims to leave skin clean without leaving behind an oily or greasy residue. First off, I have to say I'm obsessed with a good cleansing balm. It's really my preferred formula for removing makeup at the end of the day. It's very important to me that the balm doesn't burn my eyes, removes everything effectively, and doesn't leave behind oily or greasy residue. I found this clinique black charcoal balm to be amazing. The balm itself has such a silky feel. It glides across the skin flawlessly, and it breaks down the makeup easily. It doesn't burn my eyes, and I haven't had any sort of reaction from the balm. It washes away easily, and it doesn't leave any sort of unwanted residue or skin troubles behind. I've used various mascara formulas to be removed by this balm, and they all broke down quickly, effortlessly, and painlessly with this balm. Honestly, this is the first charcoal cleansing balm I've tried, and I absolutely love it! I've tried a lot of cleansing balms over the years, and I would have to put Clinique Charcoal Cleansing Balm in my top 3, without a doubt. It's obvious with how easily it breaks down and removes makeup without irritation, balm itself feels silky to touch, and it doesn't leave behind greasy residue. The balm delivered on all claims for me, and I highly recommend giving it a try. I will absolutely buy this cleansing balm again. If you love a high quality balm, then Clinique Black Charcoal is worth picking up and trying! I love the added ingredients of Japanese Charcoal to detoxify, while removing makeup and impurities. As I previously said, this is my first time trying a Charcoal balm, and I am quite certain I like it better than the original formula, as well as the liquid! This balm is such a wonderful product!
I personally do not really like this cleanser, it does it's job but it almost like there's a learning curve lol. It works but it feels messy. First off I don't like that the balm goes on pigmented and makes it look like your mascara is smudged lol it's very off putting and you have to reapply it a few times to fully take of the makeup and and the balm itself LOL it's not very user friendly I prefer my cleansers to a have a lather of some sort and this just looks like smudged mascara. It's hydrating and doesn't leave a lil residue which is good but I feel this would work better if there was no pigment. There's no smell at all and it's very hard to take out the jar especially if u wear fake nails. Ultimately this would be a decent product if it wasn't pigmented!
This is the best balm and greatest part it has Japanese charcoal which will not clog the pores but remove impurities. Recommended for oily skin not for dry.
I absolutely love this cleanser. I wear EL Double Wear foundation most days which doesn't come off easy and this does an amazing job of removing my makeup quickly and my skin feels so smooth and clean afterwards. I think my skin feels less oily throughout the day as well. My new go to nightly cleanser!!
At first, I kinda liked it. It removed my makeup well, and then I'd go over with my regular cleanser. But the more I used it the more my skin seemed to reject it. It started breaking out and my skin didn't feel clean. It felt as though as I had a barrier on top of my skin that wouldn't wash off. When I quit using it, it went away. I've used other products like this and they seem to work better, but the micellar water works best for my skin. -- 41 y/o white female - no real acne problems. normal skin.
This did what it's supposed to do. Wasn't the type of charcoal to stain your face which is great. Easy to use and very nice product, although if you struggle with acne this won't be your friend. Anything with charcoal will purge the skin. As someone Using acne fighting products 24/7 to minimize my breakouts and cystic acne , I don't want something that's going to bring them to the surface every time I take my make up off and new dark spots to fight off.
I've been searching for something Ike this that I don't have to actually wash face every night I've used this last few nights and extremely happy with taking off makeup ex specially waterproof mascara!! It's fabulous I'm in love and will be purchasing more!
