|Clinique Take the Day Off|
I find this cleansing balm really good at breaking down my makeup, more so that my EH. Generally it’s a really lovely cleanser. This retails for £21 for 125ml and I bought mine at boots, there are other retailers. It has a slightly different texture to the EH, it has more of a slip to it, the EH feels slightly coarse by comparison.
I tend to remove my makeup first, then use this for my second cleanse. It works like many other cleansing balms. Scoop a small amount out of the tub, I like to then rub it between my hands, then rub it all over my face. It changes to an oil quite quickly. I generally start with my eyes to give it time to break up any eye makeup that might be left over . Then I apply it over the rest of my face in circular motions! I like to use a face cloth to remove the cleanser – just add nice hot water (not too hot mind you!). You may prefer a muslin cloth. Either way, a cloth of some time is required to remove this cleanser.
This hasn’t caused any irritation and it isn’t too harsh for my skin. A friend has slightly drier skin and she noticed her skin was tight after using it. I’ve never had that issue, I have oily combination skin. I have used this morning and night to check if it would cause any irritation or drying of my skin and I have not have any issues with it thankfully!
I would definitely recommend this and I think it’s great value for money. I’ve done a video review below which you can check out if you like!
