Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

I really wanted to try a cleansing balm since I have usually always stuck to micellar waters and oils.  Here are my thoughts on this product after using it multiple times these past few weeks.

Packaging Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, $29.50 ( shop here )

The product comes in a purple colored tub made out of plastic.  It has the name of the brand and the product on the tub.


Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride, Sorbeth-30 Tetraoleate, Polyethylene, PEG-5 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Water / Aqua / Eau, Tocopherol, Phenoxyethanol.


Clinique’s lightweight Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm quickly dissolves tenacious eye and face makeups as well as sunscreens. It transforms from a solid balm into a silky oil upon application. It cleans thoroughly, rinses off completely, and gently helps remove the stress of pollution so skin looks younger, longer.

My Thoughts

I am in love with this!!  The idea is so genius that I am very disappointed I had not been using a cleaning balm before.  It is seriously like a cream-oil-micellar water mix.  It removes EVERYTHING!!  The toughest liquid lip, waterproof mascara, the darkest liner, and just everything you can think of hard to remove.  You really do not need so much product so it will last you a while.  The smell is really nothing bothersome.  The best part is that you do not need to wipe this off to clean you face.  You can simply wash your face and the balm acts like a face wash that you simply wash off.  I love this because it saves time and gives you a better clean feeling.  It will not dry y our face off or leave it oily afterwards.  I really also enjoy this because it takes much less time than using a micellar water or an oil.  It is also on sale at Macy’s, so go and get this steal before it is all sold out, I know I am!!
