Clinique Take The Day Off Balm | Review

Let’s see if the high ratings on this product are true. Is the Clinique Take The Day Off Balm my new holy grail? Is it worth the hype?


I know! I’m so late to the party on this one! This product was floating around YouTube and the beauty community a few years ago and I always wanted to try it and I never got round to it. It’s had so many good reviews and sounds fabulous! I’m trying my best to cut down on waste and so I’m ditching face wipes – I’m hoping that this can be my alternative. Since Clinique has now came to ASOS (my favourite online store ever, fyi) I thought it was time to give this cleanser a whirl.

The Claims

Apparently, this product is suitable for all skin types and it has a fragrance free formula that’s free from parabens. This balm is supposed to cleanse the skin, melt make up away and leave your skin feeling soft and residue free. It should melt off all make up (even eyeliner and mascara!!) and leave my skin feeling fresh!

How To Use

Massage a small amount into your hands, without wetting them. Rub the balm on your face to dissolve make up and then rinse with warm water before patting dry with a towel. I used a sponge after the balm just to wipe over my face with warm water to ensure that all my mascara was off!

My Thoughts

Using this product was really quick and easy! It didn’t take long at all to remove a full face of make up by simply rubbing the balm across my face and massaging it in. I followed this with my nighttime skin routine and honestly, my skin felt great. Sometimes, when using wipes, it can feel like there’s still make up left on your face on a night after you’ve removed it – but I didn’t feel this at all with the balm. My face felt clean, cleansed and so soft!

Using a good cleanser can make you feel really refreshed and reveal your skin’s glow from within – which I love. You really don’t need much product on your fingers at all so I feel like that justifies the £24 price point, because a little goes along way so it should last you a good while.

I definitely recommend you trying this cleanser – my skin has never felt this clean or refreshed before – think I’ve found a new holy grail!

Thanks for reading as always.
