A transformational, lightweight makeup remover that goes from balm to oil to milk to melt away every trace of makeup—a makeup artists' best friend.
This makeup remover effortlessly dissolves even the most tenacious makeup and sunscreen. Its non-greasy, non-drying, lightweight formula nourishes skin, cleanses thoroughly, and rinses off completely, so all that’s left is a fresh, dewy glow.
Ophthalmologist tested and ideal for all skin types. It effectively helps lift pollution to purify and refresh skin.
Color: White or rather colorless. It just looks white in pot.
Texture and Consistency: Thick, dense, Vaseline like solid.
Application: I get a little more than dime size product, rub it between my fingers and gently massage it on my face. It turns from its balmy consistency to oil and dissolves all the makeup. After that I use water to cleanse it further and the oil turns into this milky thing. Later I rinse it off with water completely. This is usually my first cleanse.
Feel and Effect on the Skin: I like the way it feels on my skin. Especially the whole massaging thing. It is not heavy on skin and just floats beautifully. It is solid when applied but later the transformation to oil is amazing. It removes every single trace of my makeup without any tugging or pulling. There is no greasy residue, but I do follow with a second cleanse using a gel cleanser.
Verdict: Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm is a very good cleanser. It is not the most unique one in the market. It has all the good qualities. It is odorless for anyone who is sensitive to scent. I don't mind a good scented cleanser personally. The product didn't break me out, it did not clog my pores, was not heavy on skin nor did leave any residue. It also removed the stubborn mascara and the price is good.
Well, it is not super drugstore cheap, but very good in comparison to others I have tried. It is there in the mid price range and the performance is excellent. The ingredients are not bad either. A big thumbs up from me.
Bunch of cleansing balms and Oils that I have tried.
