Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

As much as I adore wearing make up, one of my favourite parts of the day is taking it all off and giving my skin a good cleanse in the evenings. I've used many types of cleansers but never a balm - I decided they weren't for me, the thought of an oily balm all over my already oily face wasn't appealing surprisingly. That's until I got my hands on this offering from Clinique, a cleanser that I've been loving using lately as part of my evening skin care routine.

The Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm (£21) is a lightweight cleanser which transforms from a solid balm to a silky, fluid oil upon application. This is such a wonderful product to use, after massaging this gently into my skin for a few minutes, the light oil melts away all traces of make up leaving my skin feeling impeccably clean and oh so soft. I was so impressed from the first use at how effective it is at removing make up, especially stubborn eye make up, it just dissolves so easily! I love how nice and light this cleanser feels on my skin, it doesn't feel greasy or leave a nasty film over my face afterwards, it just feels so cleansed and fresh.

I'm so, so pleased that I decided to try this cleanser. If like me you suffer from oily skin, don't be put off by using cleansing balms. My complexion looks so radiant and healthy after use. I can see this cleanser lasting me quite a while as the tub is pretty big and a little really does go a long way with this product. Trust me, it's definitely worth as try.

Have you tried any cleansing balms? What do you think of them?



  1. I'm a bit obsessed with cleansing balms at the moment. I've tried Eve Lom and Emma Hardie and loved them. Especially EH, it's amazing! My skin is dry though... :)

  2. I was also worried about using an oily balm on my oily skin until I tried EH's Amazing Face which I now love! It's on the pricey side though so definitely think I'll give this Clinique offering a go soon x

  3. I haven't tried any balms yet but I know I'm missing out! I love using cleansing oils so I'm sure I'll love these balms too.

  5. This sounds perfect for me. I will definitely be trying this but I want to use up all the products I have lying around the place first lol x x

  6. I love your layout. It's pretty.
    I've heard just so much about this. I'm trying to think if I should wait one more month to buy this or just buy it now! seems like such a lovely product.

    1. Thank you :) if you have money you should just treat yourself, I have a million different cleansers lying around but I can never help myself, I always buy new ones xx

  7. The only cleansing balm that I have tried is the Emma Hardie one. I might give the Clinique one a try as it is much easier to get in Australia.
