          This balm is magical. You need to take very little and use it with your fingers. When it heats up form your skin, is turns milky and all of your makeup will wipe away. Mascara, eye shadow, primer, etc. I have oily eyelids so I do have to be careful about leaving any residue, I need to wipe all of it off after use which isn't a big deal.

              It is the best make up remover that I have ever used. Removes all make up, including waterproof mascara which is extremely hard to remove. Don't have to use a lot of the product for it to do its job

              This is a great makeup remover. I like that it feels silky and smooth going on. After rinsing, my skin didn't feel dry. Did a pretty fair job getting mascara off, which is why I bought it in the first place.

                The girl working at Ulta actually recommended it! She sampled it on my hand and I instantly had smooth clean skin! It even took off all the swatches of liquid lipstick I was sampling that day! I love it and it also doesn't make me feel greasy just clean and smooth

                Horrible breakouts

                By Bp1990

                from Coeur d Alene

                Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

                It does take your makeup off really well, but it's not worth it for how bad it ruined my skin. I usually only get hormonal breakouts but once i started using this stuff i would get under the skin painful zits and whiteheads.. i was so confused what was causing it. I didn't think it was this because it's only on your skin for a minute and then you rinse it off, but after looking through each ingredient and noticing there are lots of pore clogging ingredients i stopped using it. Within 2 days my skin is already getting better

                  • Q:

                    I normally just use a cleanser but noticed I still had a lot of makeup on my cotton when I used the toner. I always thought cleansers take the makeup off? So am I supposed to only use take the day off or do I use take the day off plus a cleanser afterwards? Then toner? Thanks for your help.

                      A:

                      We appreciate the opportunity to explain that we do not have a comprehensive list of products that contain or don't contain certain ingredients. However, if you would kindly provide us with the specific product names with which you are interested, we will then consult our laboratories and share our findings with you.

                      In addressing your concern about gluten, we would like to explain that a vast number of raw materials from many different suppliers and sources are used in the manufacture of Estee Lauder Companies' products. It is therefore not possible for us to fully guarantee that our products are completely free of ingredients that may elicit an allergic response in highly sensitive individuals who react to gluten. For example, it is possible that small amounts of a wheat sourced ingredient may remain on shared manufacturing equipment even after a thorough cleaning. We therefore recommend that you discuss this with your physician, because consumer safety is of utmost concern to us. Thank you for your interest in Clinique and have a great week!
