The Review: Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm



Clinique Take Off The Day Cleansing Balm £21

I thought it was about time that I put down the face wipes and invest in a good cleansing balm to take off my makeup. I decided to go with the Clinique Take Off The Day Cleansing Balm, as it is a brand renown for being gentle on skin. It looks like a solid wax in the jar, but as soon as the warmth of your fingers touch the surface, it melts into a smooth buttery texture. It was quite strange opening the jar, as it is fragrance-free, and I am used to the fruity scent of my Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean. However, it's free of any nasties and suitable to any skin type. It's slightly pricey at £21, but as you can see, I've barely touched the surface. I would say, I struggled to take off my mascara with this without losing some lashes, but it does work for the bulk of face makeup. I smooth it over my face and gently massage with my finger tips. I then soak a flannel in hot water and remove. Overall, I would recommend this cleanser, it's good value for money and does the job well. Definitely try this if you are in the market for a balm cleanser.

What is your current favourite cleanser?

  1. I've been meaning to pick this up, but whenever I think about it I seem to have less money than I would like. These days I'm just using Nivea face wipes or Neutrogena Fresh Foaming cleanser, none are better than the other. I think I need to invest in a good cleanser!
