Guys, I finally get it. I finally get the hype with this product, the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm. It is an effective and pleasant to use product! At $56AUD I would happily consider repurchasing in future, though I know this tub will last me a while.The Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm feels very nice to apply and I like to give myself a little face massage while using it. The balm doesn’t emulsify like a Shu Uemura oil, but does warm from a balm to an oil very quickly. It comes off with water easily. I use a towel to dry my face afterwards.When rinsed off, my skin felt very clean and all the grease and oil that normal sits on my naturally oily forehead and nose was gone. I’d definitely follow with a moisturiser. Doesn’t leave my skin feeling too stripped like other cleansers have.
When used with makeup:
KEY INSTRUCTION: Rinse wellManages to break down makeup fine but really needs a good rinse with water and a wash cloth to get all the makeup off the face. Would be perfect for pre-shower and you could just use the water pressure from the shower head and your hands to wash off the makeup easy. It also dealt with the waterproof mascara well.
