Amazing!!

By Rachel

from Washington Township

Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

After purchasing this product I didn't really know what to expect, but the results were amazing. Using the cleansing bomb made my skin feel so clean and soft after one use. It has helped with break outs, give me better complexion and surprisingly my eyelashes are a bit longer too. This is the perfect product to take off your make up after a long day!!

    Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

    My friend told me to test this product at Ulta awhile back on my lipstick and it took it off really well, but I was still hesitant to buy it because I didn't think it actually worked. When I finally bought it and used it, it was AMAZING. I have so so so much trouble trying to get my eye makeup off at night and this took everything off as soon as I put the balm on. 100% recommend!

      Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

      This is my holy grail for removing mascara! I haven't really tried it as an all over makeup remover yet, but it takes mascara off like a dream. My eyes get really irritated and burn when I use makeup remover wipes so this balm changed the game for me. I love this product and will definitely be purchasing again when I run out!

      My "go-to" remover

      By Melissa

      from Austin,Tx

      Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

      This stuff is amazing. I love how it melts onto my skin and just takes everything off. I have experienced no irritation using this product and it works like a dream for me every time! I've read the comments on here that it doesn't work or it made their skin red. And I wonder what the heck are these women doing to their face when using this product? It's super easy! Here, this is how I use this balm. Apply, let it sit for 5 minutes (usually I will play on my phone for a while) then rinse my face using a hand towel and warm water. Blam! Done! Easy peasy! Sometimes I will go the extra mile and use my Murad cleanser followed by a serum and moisturizer. But generally I use this when I'm feeling lazy.

        Comments about Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm:

        Loveeeeeeee this. I wear makeup a lot and this is the only thing I can use that effectively gets it alllll off. Granted, it's messy but better than using 1000 makeup wipes or ruining your wash cloths/brushes trying to get makeup off. I rub it all over (even my eyes) and it gets it off. I won't buy any other makeup remover.

              Hi! Clinique uses the term "non-acnegenic." If a product is non-acnegenic, it has undergone clinical testing by a board-certified dermatologist and was determined not to increase the number of or worsen acne lesions. Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm is non-acnegenic.

            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.
