Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm Review

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

You've probably read countless reviews praising Clinique's Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm! Well I'm here to AMEN those sentiments! I used some of my Sephora reward points last year to get a deluxe sample. I loved it so much, I purchased a full size jar. I've tried all kinds of of makeup removers such as DHC, Bioderma, Pixi + Caroline Hirons, MURAD, Pixi Cleansing Balm, but none of them compare to Clinique's Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm. It's a creamy balm (not super hard), that's easy to apply. IT'S NOT GREASY! IT'S NOT OILY! I DON'T DETECT A SCENT (just checked ... 100% Fragrance Free)! As soon as you apply it, you can see it break down your makeup! THERE'S NO BURNING! THERE'S NO TINGLING! And then you just wash or wipe off! Your face is not irritated afterwards. It strips off the hardest of makeup WITHOUT stripping your skin. Your skin feels soft & dare I say moisturized. I love it! Plus, since it's a balm its easy to transport. For the demonstration below, I used my Marc Jacobs Neo Noir Lipstick. You know how messy RED LIPSTICK can get! Just look how it wipes away so cleanly after application :) There have been many times when I've used other makeup removers on red lipstick and look like the Joker afterwards! HaHaHa The only negative I can think of, is if you are a CONTACT LENS wearer (like myself). Remove them before applying this! If you don't your contacts will have a film on them. Another thing I love about this cleansing balm is I can apply it all around my eyes and it won't irritate me. It removes eye makeup easy. I'm not sure if you know ... I didn't, until I looked on Sephora's & ULTA's website ... Clinique has a COLLECTION of 'Take The Day Off' products! Did you know that? I made a little chart below. They have cleansing oil, milk, eye makeup remover sticks and even towlettes! I haven't tried any of those, but would love to in the future. For smaller makeup removal, I still love my Neutrogena & Aveeno makeup wipes and Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. Have you tried any of these Clinique products? What's your favorite makeup remover?

Ah I'm really tempted by this balm, so many people seem to love it, I really still quite like my Liz Earle though, decisions decisions :)

I've always heard positive things about this cleansing balm and now we can add your experience to them Kim. It sounds like it does exactly what it should. I've been reaching for my cleansing balms more than my cleansing oils lately so I will have to add this one to my wish list. For makeup removal, I've been doing a triple cleanse - Bioderma Sensibio H2O followed by a cleansing bam/oil and then a foaming cleanser with my Clarisonic.

This sounds well worth the hype! Thank you for sharing, I was in two minds whether to buy this but as soon as my Emma Hardie balm finishes this one is going straight into my cart. Great post xxx

Oh wow! Look how easily it removed that red?!?!? Thanks for this, Kim:) I've always been a big fan of Clinique and grew up using the Dramatically Different moisturizer. Even their makeup is pretty rad. Good to know this balm lives up to the hype! I've only been using mostly Korean and Japanese skin care stuff lately, but I'll definitely keep this in mind.

Mica T said...

Oh wow they have a great range! I didn't know!

I'm curious now as I have just used the first one, the makeup remover. I don't' wear makeup often so those kind of things last forever for me, haha!

Really liked the way you showed this removing the lipstick Kim! :)

I've actually heard so many great reviews on this product, I really want to explore more with Clinique products

A completely fragrance free product is a mus for me, so I'm definitely intrigued by this - I've used some of Clinique's old standby cleansers, but nothing from the "Take the Day Off" line. And I have to say, I'm super impressed by the demonstration of how well this product works - that lipstick wipes clean off your hand! None of my make-up removers usually do that on the first try :P

Tanya Dufour said...

Ok now you have me interested in this and I normally don't like these types of products and just stick to wipes lol

Jalisa Giron said...

I guess I should be looking into this one, since you've listed all the popular removers and still feel this is best at removing makeup; I'm intrigued. I didn't know you wear contacts, so do I! Now I have some questions for you, lol. What do you do to prevent transference of eyeliner from your waterline to your lenses and what liner do you suggest because no matter which kind I try, waterproof or not, I always end up with raccoon eyes! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!

Clinique is one of the best and reliable products. This one really works. I will give it a try.

Ashley Sue said...

I need to try a cleansing balm! I'm definitely going to keep this one in mind. Lately I'm feeling like my makeup remover wipes and cleanser aren't getting all my makeup off. It's bugging me, so maybe I need something extra like this! Thanks for the review, Kim! I'm glad it lives up to all the good reviews!

KateEmma said...

I adore this cleanser! I always stock up on this when they do a gift with purchase!

Gabrielle said...

This is the first I've heard of this product, so thanks so much for the info! I used to love Clinique skincare products and so I'm a little bit curious about giving this a go - especially as the only negative you can think of doesn't apply to me/my eyes! Have a lovely weekend Kim :)

Julie May said...

I really like the Pix cleansing balm so I am pretty sure I would love this more as you do. I will have to try and get my hands on it asap! Sounds like exactly what I have been searching for! XO

Coco said...

I love the idea of taking the day off with a luscious balm. My makeup is mostly heavy duty and this balm sounds like the holy grail. I'm impressed by how it breaks down and wipes out easily red lipstick. Marked on my wishlist! Baci, Valeria - Coco et La vie en rose FASHION & BEAUTY

This cleansing balm sounds like a dream come true. I just finished the body shop's butter cleanser and I really liked that one. I will definitely give this one a try next since you gave it such a great review 😁💖

Laura - Alagoz said...

This sounds amazing! I have tried only cleansing butter from Body Shop and like it. I might pick it up next time I need a new one x

I have long been wanting to try a cleansing balm. There have been local dupes coming out and I'm hoping to try that first. I'm glad you liked this one. :)
