Clinique Take The Day Off Review


After running out of a bottle of Bioderma and L'Oreal Micellar Water I was on the lookout for something new to take my makeup off. I was Boots in the Gyle Centre, Edinburgh and ended up chatting to the lady at the Clinique counter. She went through their skin care consultation on the iPad which designed my perfect skincare routine for all my concerns. One of the products that met all the needs of my dry, sensitive, blemish-prone skin was take the day off cleansing balm. 

I needed something to remove face and eye makeup and this does both. It takes just a small amount of balm, which melts on my skin to remove all traces of my foundation, concealer, bronzer and blush. I then use another small blob to melt away all of my eye makeup, including waterproof mascara. You can then use water or a bit of toner/cleanser to remove the products. I tend to use some Eau Roma Toner Water by Lush, or wash it off in the shower.

The cleansing balm has no scent which makes it perfect for sensitive skin. It's a non-greasy and non-drying product so it's great for any skin type. I find quite a lot of cleansing products strip my skin of any moisture so it's a huge bonus for me that my skin isn't left feeling tight and dehydrated.

It's a lot pricier than products that I've used before. The good thing is it lasts a lot longer as it's a huge tub and barely takes any of product to melt away all of my makeup. It's done wonders for my skin so really it's worth the splurge. 

Have you ever had a skin consultation at Clinique?
When it comes to skin care is high end worth it for you?
